Celebrating The Living Legacy of The Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan

Honoring the Legacy of Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan - Program Schedule


Nirvair Singh Khalsa

 A Note from Nirvair


Sat Nam.

Greetings from New Mexico!

Early this month, we are gathering to remember Yogi Bhajan, ten years after he left his earthly body. You can find more information on that event at

Yogi Bhajan loved Guru Ram Das and we celebrate Guru Ram Das’ birthday this month. Guru Ram Das was a humble man and a great saint and healer. Once, Yogi Bhajan was asked. “Why Guru Ram Das?” Yogi Bhajan’s response was,

I said, Yeah because the combination of the imperialness and the spiritual ness, I am using two words, Combine in one personality as a total identity and blend and it was the personality of Guru Ram Das.

You look now on all sages, all messenger of God, all holy men, all identity, all great people, all avatars, whatever you want to see there shall be one thing very common, either they lived very unattached with the earth and guided, and denounced or they ruled and pronounced.

Starts a new era in the spiritual world of Guru Ram Das, he announced and pronounced God is, bhakti and shakti blended in one identity and that is Guru Ram Das.

I will like you to research the spirituality of the universe and understand what I am saying those few words. In all the eras of the universe two things have come to us separately; either the messenger has come with utmost denouncement or the messenger has come with utmost pronouncement and people have accepted, I am not saying the people have not accepted but in the identity and the personality and the reality and the spirituality, the duality of bhakti and Shakti amalgamated into oneness and that is what Guru Ram Das is. It was not my decision, I might have given a different opinion but it was God's decision.

First time you are supposed to be spiritual, real and regal and not orphan before your desires. You do not know real orphan, real orphan is the one who is, who has no control on his desires, who is weak within himself, who cannot command his grace against the race of time and space. What a unfortunate animal is that and that is what Guru Ram Das personality stands as a light. It tells us, be spiritual, be regal, in the duality of the word don't let your personality fall apart.

This is a wonderful month to chant the mantra Guru Guru Wahe Guru, Guru Ram Das Guru. It always fills me with more comfort and relaxation. As Yogi Bhajan said,

My prayer is, you have walked unto the house of Guru Ram Das, may you understand Guru Ram Das, may you love Guru Ram Das, may you feel Guru Ram Das, may you trust Guru Ram Das, may you be with Guru Ram Das, may you understand Guru Ram Das and may you explore and not ignore Guru Ram Das. May you understand in the thought, action, deed, form, projection, reality, non-reality and Divinity or Infinity, that you are nothing but a friend of Guru Ram Das, student of Guru Ram Das.

40 Lectures 40 Days

These 40 lectures have been just a peek in to the vastness of Yogi Bhajan’s teachings. There are so many wonderful gems of wisdom and powerful messages throughout his lectures.

In this lecture featuring the Meditation to Relax and Rejoice, Yogi Bhajan speaks about our connection to our own spirit and the teacher within. This excerpt stuck with me:

There is a direct relationship within your inner being and your being and then you can stand for outer being. You cannot confront the world. You will always see one thing very sure. Whenever a man of God talks about God and truth and his inner being is clear, outside world always crucifies him. And find out any case, one case, where a real man of truth has not been slandered day in and day out. Because the truth is when a man of God speaks the God from the inner being all the outer being starts feeling the pinch of it. That's why you cannot understand the teaching, you cannot understand the teacher because the teacher has to be in you then the teachings will come automatically.

In many of his teachings Yogi Bhajan reminds us of our capacity to be teachers not only of others but, most importantly, of ourselves.
