The Fourth Sutra: Understand Through Compassion Or You Will Misunderstand The Times

"It is the touch of the hand, a spoken word and the contact of the eyes which open the heart of the man, not the knowledge of all the libraries in the world."
- Yogi Bhajan

Yogi Bhajan clarified this sutra when he said we need to understand through compassion—instead of passion—or we will misunderstand. Passions are like tides coming and going. The mind can't be steady because the tidal waves of passion will always take the mind up, down, and all around.

Compassion is like a trade wind carrying you across an infinite ocean. "Turn your passions into compassion by feeling others are you and you are others. Remove the barriers of the egocentric self and feel the self in all. All is one and one is all.”

It is only when you come from your heart that your words can penetrate every heart. "When a being becomes totally a being of compassion, then his words can shake every heart, they penetrate.”

Complete Mantra

Rakhay rakhanhaar aap ubaariun
Gur kee pairee paa-eh kaaj savaariun
Hoaa aap dayaal manho na visaariun
Saadh janaa kai sung bhavjal taariun
Saakat nindak dusht khin maa-eh bidaariun
Tis Saahib kee tayk naanak manai maa-eh
Jis simrat sukh ho-eh saglay dookh jaa-eh
Jis simrat sukh ho-eh saglay dookh jaa-eh

Translation

God Himself is looking out for us,
gives us the light, and takes care of our affairs.
God is merciful, and never forgets us.
God guides us, giving us good people to help us.
God does not allow hurt to come to us.
I take comfort in the thought of God.
When I remember God, I feel peaceful and happy
and all my pain departs.

3HO Foundation - Ram Das Puri

3HO International - the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization is comprised of people dedicated to living a life that uplifts and inspires. Founded in 1969, 3HO has become a vibrant, dynamic community of leaders, teachers, students, and seekers of various faiths, persuasions, and cultures practicing the time-proven technology of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan®, grounded and centered in a philosophy of compassion and kindness.

Ram Das Puri hosts Summer Solstice, International Women's Camp, and Khalsa Youth Camp. Many upgrades are needed to the project to allow for growth so that we can continue to serve the 3HO sanghat in excellence and grace. We are excited to preserve and enhance this beautiful sacred land for generations of yogis to come.

Sat Nam Foundation - Land Sanctuary Project

The Sat Nam Foundation was created to serve. Seva (service) is one of the fundamental practices of a yogic lifestyle. We believe that it is our duty as yogis to serve. The owners, employees, artists and teachers of Spirit Voyage and Sat Nam Fest banded together to create Sat Nam Foundation to manifest our mission of yogis serving those in need through yoga and music. We invite you to join us. Jump on board! Learn more here.

Sat Nam Foundation is raising funds to create a land sanctuary in the US to provide children who have overcome trauma and abuse through nature programs and Kundalini Yoga. Soon a large campaign to help fund this initiative will be announced, and all proceeds from this sadhana will go to supporting this vision of assisting children in their healing.

3HO Europe - 3HO Château Anand Association

Château Anand is a Kundalini Yoga & Events Centre surrounded by beautiful scenery, on the border of a river, in the center of France. The bigger city around is Poitiers. With daily kundalini yoga sadhana & the practice of Yogi Ji's teachings, since May 2015 Château Anand is able to host groups and events up to 150+ people. The Château Anand project is still in process of being built & running - it depends very much on funds and donations from the community, as well as any additional donations. Learn more here..
