Meet Teacher Hari Nam Singh Khalsa

 HNS01Close

How did you find Kundalini Yoga (or how did it find you!)?

It was a circuitous path spanning 18 years. I first heard of Yogi Bhajan, the Siri Singh Sahib in 1975, when I was studying Zen Buddhism at the Zen Center of Los Angeles with Maezumi Roshi. My Zen friend Bruce was describing the wonderful yoga he was experiencing with Yogi Bhajan. Also in 1975, I was a graduate student of engineering at the University of Southern California. I encountered Tej Kaur at that time, who told me of her wonderful experiences with Yogi Bhajan and Kundalini Yoga. Also at that time I worked in the Aerospace industry as an engineer. That is where I met my friend Hargopal Kaur. She was (and still is) a physicist.

One day, Hargopal asked me about Zen meditation. I introduced her to the community and we sat in the Zendo. Hargopal did not take to the practice, as she said it was a little too sedentary. So, I suggested that she go to see Yogi Bhajan, who would give her a better workout. So, she did. Soon after all this, I lost contact with all of them.

Shortly after, my wife and I began a martial arts practice in Aikido, which we kept up for twenty-five years. We both earned the rank of Shodan. One day in 1991 I visited my chiropractor, Dr. Waheguru Singh, for a knee injury I sustained in training. He mentioned that his teacher was in town and teaching that evening across the street at Yoga West. He invited me to attend.

The experience that evening showed me that Yogi Bhajan was my teacher. I was blown away. I hadn’t listened to Bruce or Tej closely enough to actually find Yogi Bhajan, but that casual invitation changed everything. From that evening on, my wife and I regularly attended Yogi Bhajan’s classes when he was in town. That was also when we met Hargopal again after about ten years.

Sat Nam Rasayan®

In the Summer of 1993, at Summer Solstice in New Mexico, Hargopal and I were talking outside the Tantric Shelter one afternoon when she saw Guru Dev Singh walking by and said she would like to introduce me to her healing (Sat Nam Rasayan) teacher. Guru Dev Singh walked toward us, and at the moment we met, a cyclone of wind and dust enveloped us. When we recovered from that intense experience Hargopal introduced us. I attended Guru Dev Singh’s healing workshop in the Tantric Shelter that afternoon and recognized that I was destined to study Sat Nam Rasayan® with him.

For some time after that my wife and I attended weekly beginning Sat Nam Rasayan® classes with Hargopal at Gurmukh’s house and workshops with Guru Dev Singh when he was in town. We were Hargopal’s first Sat Nam Rasayan® students.

Teaching

I began healing and teaching Sat Nam Rasayan® in the healing and meditation space in our home in 1998. We call it the Healing Heart Center. I still perform healing and teach meditation and healing workshops there. Dev Atma Suroop Kaur graciously provides meals for the students in attendance at the workshops.

During Summer Solstice in 2000, Sat Kirn Kaur, director of Yoga West, invited me to begin teaching at Yoga West. Before that happened, I became certified as a Kundalini Yoga instructor. Hari Charn Kaur of KRI graciously invited me to test for certification under the grandfather program, which was ending around that time. I have since been teaching Kundalini Yoga, meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan® classes at Yoga West.

In 2004 I began teaching Sat Nam Rasayan® at Golden Bridge Yoga. I still teach weekly classes there.

Since 2009 I have been travelling to other cities, teaching meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan® abroad.

What do you love about teaching at Yoga West?

What motivates me as a teacher and healer is that I have found a way where I can be useful. I am one of many healers and teachers that Yogi Bhajan and Guru Dev Singh have produced whose intention is to reduce suffering and bring light into the world. Yoga West is the home of Kundalini Yoga, the House that Yogi Bhajan built. I feel a strong connection with the place where I sat with my teacher over so many years.

What is your favorite Yogi Bhajan Teaching?

Ang Sang Waheguru.

What else do you do in your life that we might not know about ?

In 2008 my wife and I began a line of shirts and other clothing that feature sacred images. We call it Shuniya. We have offered them at Summer Solstice and at other retreats.

NM0163 – Feel God Within You, The Kindness in You

Screen Shot 2014-04-09 at 5.02.22 PMNM0163-2-Feel God Within You–The Kindness In You-SummerSolstice-III

Kindness is the most powerful thing on this planet.  When you are kind in character God serves you.  “In God I dwell” means nothing but kindness, consciousness, and sweetness towards people.  When you see God in all, you see all that God is. But if you cannot see God in all, you cannot see God at all!

Meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan® Healing Workshop with Hari Nam Singh 03/29/2014 – “Healing the Perception” – (Review)

We held a Meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan® Healing Workshop with Hari Nam Singh at the Healing Heart Center in Hollywood. The topic of the workshop was “Healing the Perception”.  Many conditions can be healed simply by a shift or a broadening of perception.  We practiced several exercises that helped the patient “see” their irritations differently and dilute the anxiety they bring.

Siri Singh Sahib’s First Principle of Success

The First Principle of Success

Siri Singh Sahib ji
You want to know the key to success? Simple – don’t walk on others. Don’t step on others’ toes. Carry others, carry people with you, above you; God shall carry you.

Some people ask me, “How do you know the answer to everything?” I said, “What is there to know? You know everything anyway.” You only need to know one thing: anybody who approaches you, just put him one step higher than he is. The job will be done, and you’ll be blessed.

Once a teacher came to his master and said, “Master, I am in a lot of trouble.” The master said, “What’s the problem? Why are you yelling and screaming for me? What’s your problem?” “You sent me to the city to teach, but everybody is just yelling at me and calling me a fake.” “They come and abuse you?” “Many people gather in the morning, and they are just mad.” “Oh, you are on a very successful note.” “Master, none have come in; none have come to learn from me; no one has come to say hello. All they do is yell and scream abuse at me. They shout and ridicule me.” “You are a great success. That’s all I wanted to hear.” “But what should I do about it?” “Go and stay there. When they come in the morning, smile; when they yell at you, smile; when they throw eggs at you, smile; when they throw stones at you, stand erect, with discipline and smile – keep smiling. Let us see what happens.”

He went, and people came, and they yelled, screamed, made faces, and he just smiled and blessed them. He stood as they threw vegetables at him and dirt at him and shoes at him; and he kept smiling, saying, “thank you, thank you.” Three days they continued. On the fourth day, they gave up and came and sat down. On the fifth day, they started abusing him again, but then stopped and looked at each other saying, “What are we doing?”

They decided they should go and apologize to him. So, two thousand people from the village came and told him, “We are very sorry; we never understood you.” he still smiled. They said, “Are you not happy?” He still smiled. “It doesn’t mean anything to you?” He smiled. Finally they said, “All right, give us the one final answer: Why are you smiling? He said “What else is there to do?” Let us pray and meditate – that’s the meditation. Smile.”

One smile can win the world, and one frown can lose it.
Just smile at adversity. I tell you it runs away. Two things cannot live together: adversity cannot remain where a man is smiling, and prosperity doesn’t live with those who are frowning. The face is an index not to the mind but to the soul.

You see people who are very unsuccessful – what do they do? When you start telling them many things, they lean in; they listen. There is no vitamin C that can stop them. That’s how they are. You must understand when somebody talks to you, if you are not willing to hear them out, you are foolishly going for an unsuccessful future. The first principle of success is, when somebody is talking, hear it. Don’t interrupt. Let him complete the sentence; hear him properly. When they are done and you are asked to speak, do not answer the question if you cannot uplift the person. If your answer uplifts that person, you shall be prosperous.

What’s a major difference between Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Jay Leno?

I see two beautiful people.  Gods in their own domain.

They both left the stage this week.

People who saw them admired their art and were elevated.

One saw his own grace and beauty in their eyes, and was elevated.  

The other did not see clearly that precious soul that was himself.

The life of the artist is lived polishing what others see.

Giving in that way can overcome extraordinary obstacles and hardship.   It can also distract one to forget to turn that kindness inward and cultivate an inner projection that makes one one’s own beloved friend.  Giving ones’ self away can allow one to form an intimate relationship with the self.

When one realizes that the self is empty, then how one perceives the self in that reality can determine whether one looks to fill it up from the outside, like the the drug dependent artist or insatiable wall street tycoon, or with one’s own (God’s) love and admiration.   Ang Sang Waheguru.

May I suggest a nice meditation for polishing the radiant body, which is what others see and also what we see inside us:  NM345 Mind and Mentality II Scope and Projection I ?

 With the palms facing down, bend the Saturn (middle) fingers forward. Bring the Saturn fingers together so that the pads touch and point  downward. The remaining fingers interlace across the backs of the hands. The thumb tips touch and point toward the body.

Bend the elbows and raise the arms so that the mudra is held at shoulder level with the forearms parallel to the floor…”almost to the moon center (That’s the chin).”

Focus the eyes at the tip of the nose.  Repeat the mantra 2X per breath:

HARI, HARI, HARI, HARI, HARI, HARI, HARI, HAR

31 minutes

Experience your existence directly.  Feel from where the feeling comes.  Quiet the subconscious.  Assume the posture and mudra shown.  Keep straight and still.  Contemplate the mind.  Allow every part of your experience.  Don’t reject any part of your experience.  Don’t judge your experience.  There is no incorrect experience.  Long deep breathing, eyes 9/10 closed, looking at the tip of the nose.  11 min.
