SikhNet & Yogi Bhajan kundalini yoga sect absent from Sikh Nation Freedom March in San Francisco
SikhNet & Yogi Bhajan tantric yoga group absent from Sikh Nation Freedom March at San Francisco Civic Center
Why wasn't SikhNet or anyone from Yogi Bhajan's Tantric yoga group participating in Sunday's Sikh Nation Freedom March & Remembering 1984 at San Francisco Civic Center yesterday? It seems Yogi Bhajan's sect is big on inter religious gatherings with Hindus while performing "magical" pujas but what about SikhNet's participation in intra religious gatherings with fellow Sikhs?
Sikhs please give your comments on this 3HO Yogi Bhajan tantric dancing video to Gurbani showing beadbi (sacrilege) of Guru Gobind Singh Ji's sacred Bani by SikhNet's dancing tantric 3HO yoga patrons? https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=k3TQCmd_Rnk#t=48
There is a discussion going on right now at SikhSangat.com http://www.sikhsangat.com/index.php?%2Ftopic%2F74645-basicsofsikhi-and-3ho-and-yogi-bhajan-question%2Fpage-3 where Sikhs are talking about how to change Yogi Bhajan's 3HO so that they start to align with Sikh Reht (Sikh code of conduct). One Sikh who I agree with has asked Everythings 13 - Basics of Sikhi "Can you honestly say they are teaching Sikhi? Dancing and grinding with the opposite sex on Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji's shabad? Maybe I am wrong and mudras are part of Sikhi Naam Simran? I ask you to take another look. Look at academic papers printed on them. Look at Yogi Bhajans acts. Research on Kundalini Yoga and it's origin. Read this well balanced article on Yogi Bhajan before you close the book on who Yogi Bhajan was..." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOp0O05dLrY
Sikhs who demand that Yogi Bhajan's 3HO & SikhNet stop using defaced Sikh khanda's as logos, like this page in protest. All Sikhs should write SikhNet at the link below demanding SikhNet tell their 3HO Yogi Bhajan benefactors to stop butchering the Sikh khanda in this sacrilegious manner: http://fateh.sikhnet.com/s/sdmural

Yogi Bhajan's Sikh Dharma wants these five yogi like figures to represent the "Panj Piare", below what 3HO calls the "Adi Shakti" but the five yogi like figures in the logo are NOT wearing dastars or kirpans!
Yogi Bhajan had us in 3HO believing that "Adi Shakti" referred to the "female power" represented by the Catholic virgin Mary adorned on the Sikh Khanda. Total sacrilege of the Sikh religion! You can see the "Adi Shakti" depicted here in the infamous mural at the 3HO ashram just behind the SikhNet offices. See this video proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BghkHjruups
The Sikh Gurus are depicted as a garland around this Catholic goddess! Here are some quotes below from Yogi Bhajan and a mantra he made up and gave us all in 3HO to practice: http://www.spiritvoyage.com/mantra/Adi-Shakti/MAN-000010.aspx
Mantra: Adi Shakti
Adi Shakti, Adi Shakti, Adi Shakti, Namo Namo
Sarab Shakti, Sarab Shakti, Sarab Shakti, Namo Namo
Pritham Bhagvati, Pritham Bhagvati, Pritham Bhagvati, Namo Namo
Kundalini Mata Shakti, Mata Shakti, Namo Namo
Some quotes Yogi Bhajan gave on this mantra specifically for women:
"Merge in the Maha Shakti. This is enough to take away your misfortune. This will carve out of you a woman. Woman needs her own Shakti, not anybody else will do it. When a woman chants the Kundalini Bhakti mantra, God clears the way. This is not a religion, it is a reality."
Below is the description Yogi Bhajan's 3HO Sikh Dharma attached to the announcement:
Exciting New Logo for SDI which you can view at: http://www.sikhdharma.org/
Since reestablishing Sikh Dharma International, a little over a year ago, it has been on our agenda to re-position the brand identity of our organization to portray a new perspective and a fresh sense of who we are and where we want to go. We are very glad to announce that we have completed this process and we are proud to show you our new logo.
As you look at this new logo, it will be obvious that we have embraced the "family" concept in relation to having our identity connect to the identities of our sister Legacy non-profit organizations, 3HO and KRI (Kundalini Yoga Research Institute). In using the iconic representation of people, as originated in the KRI logo, we acknowledge our sibling relationship. Using five symbolic people we inject the "Panj Piare" concept from our rich Sikh tradition and invoke the idea of "Sangat". Placing the "Adi Shakti" above the representation of the sangat, in a place of reverence and adoration, we proclaim this sacred symbol as being the embodiment of all things Sikh Dharma and to be at the very center of our worship.
In addition to portraying our deep spirituality, we believe that the graphic simplicity and symbolic correctness combine to make this logo powerful and relevant. Our hope is that this image will attract, inspire and encourage expansion of our organization and all that we do."
