This Year’s Yatra
The sikh leadership in India has decided to honor the legacy and lifetime work of Yogi Bhajan. We want you to be a part of these historical events! Visit places connected to Yogi Ji’s lifetime and meet a number of people whose lives were influenced by Yogi Ji. You’ll attend several events including unveiling photos of Yogi Bhajan at Sikh Museums, honoring the legacy of Yogi Bhajan at each Takht. This is your chance to be a part of history and the legacy of Yogi Bhajan’s work.
At Harimandir Sahib (golden Temple) there will be plenty of time for Kar Sewa (voluntary community service), washing the Parikrama (periphery), langar (kitchen) sew a and host of other forms of sewa. The journey is made complete at the Golden Temple where a dip in her surrounding waters heals the body, cleanses the consciousness and revitalizes the connection of our spirit with breath, mind and body. The Golden Temple is truly the Crow of the Earth where the spirit of the unknown manifests each moment.
Experience the traditional village life of Punjab during trips to other nearby historical Gurdwaras. You will also visit Miri Piri Academy and watch the daily flag lowering ceremony at the India Pakistan border at Wagah. At Anandpur Sahib you will visit the world’s biggest Sikh Museum.
At Takht Sri Hazoor Sahib there will be special viewing of the Plume (Kalghi Sahib) that was presented by sikh Dharma at the 300 year celebration of Guru Granth Sahib in October 2008.
The pilgrimage will be led by Bhai Sahib Satpal Singh Khalsa, son in law of Yogi Bhajan. Bhai Sahib Satpal has over twenty six years experience in planning Yogi Ji’s group tours and yatras to India, and over three decades of intimate association with the Sikh Dharma and various organizations started by Yogi Bhajan. He is an accomplished Kundalini Yoga Teacher and is involved in spreading the technology of Kundalini yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
On the Yatra we have an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the rich Sikh heritage of India, as we pay homage and meditate at the special places where the Sikh Gurus made history and established their Culture, leaving a legacy for the future. You will experience meditating on the Naad, the oneness of the sangat, the joy of the community kitchen, as well as the unburdening power of sewa.
