A Legacy of Transforming Lives
“You have to understand the purpose of life, the purpose of life is to do something which will live forever” – Yogi Bhajan. Yogi Bhajan is the person who gave authentic Kundalini Yoga to the modern world, breaking the centuries-old code which had kept the practice secret and elite. When he came to the United States in 1969, he stated ” I have come to create teachers, not to gather disciples”. Over the decades that followed, thousands of teachers and students formed 3HO, the international organization which supports the practice and teachings of Kundalini Yoga. Yogi Bhajan was born Harbhajan Singh Puri in 1929, in India. He became a yoga student of his teacher, Master Sant Hazara Singh, at the age of 7. He was pronounced a master of Kundalini Yoga at the age of 16. Yogi Bhajan is primarily a spiritual teacher with a global constituency. Although he has left his physical body, his teachings and organizations live on. Yogi Bhajan knew that times were changing and that new tools would be needed at this time in history. We are fortunate to have Kundalini Yoga to shape us, challenge us, and transform us- as radiant beings, with love for all.
