I would venture to say that Yogi Bhajan's 3HO makes a lot of money off their spiritual name request gimmick! The 3HO link for the spiritual name goes directly to a link that has a statement from 3HO which says "We encourage you to give a contribution...for each Spiritual Name" There is a pull down box which is right in your face with escalating amounts from $35 to $1,000 which is already filled out by 3HO before you can go to an "Ad Cart" button. I would say that in fact 3HO makes more money off this scheme by pressuring yoga students into making a "donation" to "exchange energy" and "assure your prosperity" that goes as high as $1,000 than if they just said the price is $35. This whole sacrilegious scam just shows the ongoing scams that Yogi Bhajan started! http://www.3ho.org/spiritual-names/make-contribution
3HO is trying to fool people into believing that Yogi Bhajan had some ancient secret method of numerology for seeing your destiny in order to give you the proper spiritual name. This numerology of Yogi Bhajan's is complete nonsense and against Sikh teachings.
In the Sikh tradition getting a spiritual name is completely free. All one needs to do is to recite Ardas and then take a Hukamnama from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. The first letter which appears in the Hukamnama will be the first letter Guru Sahib Ji has given you for your name. If you have further questions please write me or other Sikhs about this process.
Sikhs can learn the truth about Yogi Bhajan's corrupt practices and teachings by reading this book by Dr. Trilochan Singh who spent months with Yogi Bhajan in 1977. "Yogi Bhajan is using the sacred Sikh mantras and the sacred name of Guru Ram Das as a mantle for his Tantric Sex Yoga which will inevitably lead to mental and physical debauchery of those who take his brand of Sikhism contaminated by crazy sex-energizing asanas seriously."~ Dr. Trilochan Singh You may download Dr. Trilocahn Singh's entire book which he wrote in 1977 after spending months with Yogi Bhajan for free at: http://gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?mode=page&id=1

"A candid view into the mind of a deceived follower of a notorious fake self-made guru-businessman. I met this Yogi Bhajan years ago in LA and I was very uncomfortable by his gaze that sized up whoever he met for his gains and quickly moved out of his proximity to avoid being exploited. I met some of his abused disciples who had experienced so much pain at Yogi Bhajan's hands and felt really bad for them. Let this book serve as a warning for anyone not to put so much faith in such idiots with grand promises but readily exploit their followers. May you be blessed with Gursikhi and that loving relationship with God Guru Sant Singh and family."

The construction of Yogi Bhajan's Kundalini Yoga
"As opposed to the official history of Kundalini Yoga that claims it as an ancient and secret tradition prior to Yogi Bhajan's open teaching of it, this article argues that it was a bricolage created by Yogi Bhajan himself...."
