Every year we celebrate Yogi Bhajan’s birthday (August 26th), to pay respect for the beautiful teachings of Kundalini yoga. People all over the globe join together to chant for the 11 days leading up to his birthday and then have a special global meditation on the day of his birth, followed by a very special morning sadhana practice. Join us! Here’s how…
Eleven Days of Chanting
August 15-25. Chant 31 minutes of Yogi Bhajan’s personal mantra: Guru Guru Wahe Guru, Guru Ram Das Guru. In many community, the chanting is held at different people’s homes each night (followed by a yogic supper!) and family and friends come together to share stories of his life and legacy. Each evening, settle down to offer him (and yourself), the blissful nectar of chanting and feel yourself connect with your 3HO family the world over!
Simultaneous Global Chant
On August 26th, at exactly 6am EST/3am PST, we all chant Guru Guru Wahe Guru Guru Ram Das Guru for 11 minutes.
A Special Yogi Bhajan Birthday Sadhana the morning of August 26th is suggested as well: 2 1/2 hours of Long Ek Ong Kars! Whether you are chanting by yourself or in a group, visualize yourself surrounded by your international spiritual family!
