SATKIRIN KAUR KHALSA

Bio

Satkirin Kaur Khalsa

For nearly four decades Satkirin Kaur Khalsa has devoted her life

to expanding the consciousness of humanity through music and

Naad Yoga, the yoga of sound. Having studied extensively with

kirtan masters, she offers first-hand knowledge of the powerful

meditative system of words and music called "Shabd" which she

imparts with authenticity, enthusiasm and dedication. Using the

Indian sacred musical format of Raga scales, Satkirin creates an

effective means of healing the human body through the sound

current. Her live performances of kirtan, mantra workshops,

and her 18 CDs will carry you into a deep experience of your own

spirituality.

 

Growing up in a musical family Satkirin started singing for

hours any jingle or song of spirit. She then taught herself to play

guitar as a teenager, spending many hours singing folk songs in

the music room of Penn State University where she earned her

undergraduate degree in Fine Art and Psychology. After pursuing

a graduate degree at San Francisco State University she changed

course and joined the Youth Service Core of the American Friends

Service Committee doing peace corp type service in Turkey and

Israel.

 

On return from her International service Satkirin was drawn

to the practice of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. She

helped found the 3ho Kundalini Yoga Ashram in San Diego. Her

study of Gurbani Kirtan began on her first trip to India with

Bibi Amarjit Kaur. And soon inspired by her experience of

transformation at the famed Golden Temple of the Sikhs in

Amritsar she continued to study, practice and perform world

wide with well-known ragi- Sikh singer artists such as Bhai Jaspal

Singh, Bhai Hari Singh, Bhai Dya Singh, Ustaad Narinder Singh,

Ghulam Mohammed Khan.

 

Satkirin's immense dedication to the yogic sciences has taken

her all over the world to share this knowledge, which she

began learning directly from her teacher, Yogi Bhajan, in 1970.

She is a teacher trainer of Kundalini Yoga with a deep, direct

understanding of this yoga discipline. She teaches at the annual

3HO Winter and Summer Solstice events and at Women's Camp

in New Mexico.

 

As a Sikh Minister, appointed by Yogi Bhajan in 1974 to the

position of Guru Granthi to the Los Angeles Gurdwara (Sikh

Temple), and now serving the Manhattan Gurdwara, Satkirin

projects grace in exalted service for the care of the Sikh Holy

Scriptures, the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. She teaches the

sacred language of Gurmukhi to the adults and children of the

community and performs Sikh religious ceremonies. As part of

her mission to disseminate peace and service through music,

Satkirin is a representative to the United Nations Department

of Public Information for the NGO of Healthy Happy Holy

Organization (3HO Foundation).

 

In addition, probably her most impressive contribution is

raising two sons, with her beloved husband Siri Vishnu Singh.

Gurumustuk Singh is the webmaster and founder of the famous

Sikh-devoted website, www.sikhnet.com, and father of two

children aged 5 and 10. Dharam Singh her younger son is a

musicianas well and attends college in San Francisco, California.

Satkirin shares her wisdom by allowing us to gain a clear

experiential understanding of the power of the Naad, or universal

sound current. Like a loving mother, she nurtures within us a

deeper experience of ourselves through her gifts as a singer,

musician, teacher, minister, and advocate. As she says, “Sharing

the technology of this yogic way of life to uplift, enrich and bring

harmony and peace to others is a gift that can only grow with

sharing.”

  • Satkirin - I just wanted to send you a message of Thanks for your music. When you told me on the field trip bus that I might have heard your music, it didn't register to me who you were. It wasn't until I was driving home across the plains of Oklahoma into the sunrise and was singing along to your Universal Mantras that it finally clicked! I play your music all the time and use it in class for so many meditations. It's beautiful and so well done. Thank you for sharing your gift with us :) Sat Nam, Memphis, TN (helped with the 5-7 children
