 A Note from Nirvair


Sat Nam.

Greetings from New Mexico!

The fall school term begins this month in many places around the globe. Many Teacher Trainings in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® also start this time of year. You can sign up for Teacher Training almost anywhere in the world and learn the technology of Kundalini Yoga, meditation and lifestyle. The core of all Level One KRI Certified Teacher Trainings is preparing participants to teach and serve in the Aquarian Age. We also hope, of course, that you enjoy the training process and gain experiences that will be a source of strength for you for years to come! No matter where you train, you will find a consistent quality of heart-centered care and attention. Check out the KRI Trainers Directory to see what’s happening where you’re at!

We just completed the immersion portion of the 2014 Level One Teacher Training course in Espanola. More than half of the attendees came from countries outside the USA. Coming to Espanola to study Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is such a special experience. Our diverse group of students really came ready for this course. They came with a combination of being open and having a readiness to serve. This course was one of the best I can remember, with a tremendous amount of love, care and planning in its organization, production and teaching. Besides teaching, I sat in on as many of the classes as I was able to attend. We also had many wonderful ‘Trainers In Training’ who assisted at the course and were learning how to deliver various aspects of Level One Teacher Training. The wonderful vegetarian and vegan cuisine provided at the course gets better every year too. Our chef has been with us for the Immersion program for several years and has a wealth of healthy, yogic cuisine in his repertoire. I am already looking forward to the Level One Teacher Training Immersion in Espanola in 2015… maybe you are too—save the date! This course is definitely one of the highlights of my year! I always enjoy this course and the amazing participants and Trainers who are drawn to it!

There is a special event coming next month. Join the global community of teachers and students as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the passing and living legacy of our beloved teacher, Yogi Bhajan. Friday, October 3 – Monday, October 6, 2014. All are invited to gather at Yogi Bhajan’s personal ranch in Espanola, New Mexico to meditate, sing, tell stories and learn about the man called the Siri Singh Sahib. This is a unique opportunity and blessing to spend time in his personal Gurdwara, meditation gardens, and the ancient and sacred land Yogi Bhajan came to love. We hope to see you there!

News from The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings


Sat Nam From The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings™

Yogi Bhajan Library of TeachingsI hope you had a chance to celebrate the birthday of Yogi Bhajan in August. I was able to attend the beautiful annual birthday party here in Espanola, New Mexico. It is always such a gift to join together as a community in gratitude to celebrate Yogi Bhajan’s life and his teachings!

September puts many people in back- to-school mode. Exploring Yogi Bhajan’s teachings we can find ample guidance on the art of being a good student and a good teacher. Here is some great guidance I found in The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings™ about education…

Mother becomes blind with the child. She wants a strong child, raise him, teach him, educate him, entitle him, and what else come down to, every mother looks at the grade. What are the grades of my son in the school? So blind is the stupid mother, she never looks at the manners of the child. What are the manners of my child, never. She has no life left to look to the reality, what are the etiquettes of my child, what are the manners of my child, what is the mental and the spiritual strength of my child. The child is judged by grades all the way from day one to the last day of his life.

Yogi Bhajan, January 15, 1989

Read the complete lecture here on The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings™ searchable database.

This lecture is packed full of wonderful wisdom not just about how we influence our children but also about relationships between men and women and so much more!

I am so grateful for Yogi Bhajan’s emphasis on teaching our children manners and etiquette and showing them a strong spiritual path. These values are a priceless investment in a child’s future and a will serve them throughout life! Whether you are raising children or not, these teachings are such a perfect reminder that we could all benefit from putting less emphasis on our accomplishments and achievements and more emphasis on our spiritual strength and compassionate interaction with others.

New Kriya Search and Display Feature Progress Report

We've begun beta testing a major new feature for The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings™: Kriya Search and Display!

We've already converted over 160 kriya write-ups (with more to come!) and are storing them in our database. The new feature allows users to conduct full text searches of kriya write-ups, and narrow search results with facets (e.g., Type of Kriya, Breath, Eye Focus, Mudra, Mantra, and Total Time).

With this new tool, once you select a kriya, you are taken to a screen with instructions, commentary, beautiful images (thanks to Sat Mandir Singh and Kundalini Mobile), and a timer to keep track of exercise durations!

The launch for this feature will be integrated with KRI's "40 Kriyas in 40 Days" project leading up to Yogi Bhajan's Legacy Celebration, so be on the lookout for this coming soon!

Your donations and support are deeply appreciated! Thank you for your continued support as we work to expand this revolutionary free resource for Kundalini Yoga students and teachers worldwide. If you haven’t already, be sure to connect with us on Facebook. The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings™ Facebook page is separate from the KRI Facebook page and focuses only on The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings™ news and updates.
