Yogi Bhajan - Master of Kundalini Yoga
Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji, better known as Yogi Bhajan or as the Siri Singh Sahib to hundreds of thousands of yoga students worldwide, was born in nowadays Pakistan in 1929. His spiritual journey started at the age of 7. At the age of 16 his master Sant Hazara Singh proclaimed him to be Master of Kundalini Yoga.
In 1968 Yogi Bhajan left India for Canada and the United States, where in 1969 he broke the centuries-old code of secrecy and started teaching KY publicly. Until then, this dynamic and very potent form of yoga had been kept secret and was reserved for a yoga-elite in India.
An outstanding pioneer in many fields with a deep and compassionate insight into the human condition, he established permanent institutions, created spectacular events, produced a prolific body of teachings and trained thousands of KY teachers. He established the organisation 3HO which embodies the three H's of his credo 'healthy, happy, holy' as being the birthright of every human being. Yogi Bhajan is also the Mahan Tantric, the only teacher in the world who is allowed to teach White Tantric Yoga.
Yogi Bhajan not only taught his students Kundalini Yoga and meditation; he also taught Ayurveda, cookery (have a look at for example 'The Golden Temple Vegetarian Cookbook'), humanology - the science on how to be a human being -, and sound current (Shabd Guru).
In 1994 he founded the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association (IKYTA) to further spread his teachings as well as the Kundalini Research Institute (KRI) to preserve his teachings which he knew were years ahead of his time. Yogi Bhajan left his physical body on October 6th 2004. In April 2005 the United States House of Congress passed a resolution honouring Yogi Bhajan and the work he did.
