Ideally, early morning sadhana, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, incorporates Japji Sahib (Sikh prayer of attunement with the soul), Kundalini yoga, meditation and Gurdwara (Guru’s Gate) a meditative, music-based prayer service that Yogi Bhajan referred to as the social part of sadhana.
During approximately four decades of worldwide teaching, Yogi Bhajan consistently referred to daily sadhana as the most important practice once could do to enable self-mastery and achieve and maintain success.

Merging With the Infinite:
Quotations and Kriyas on Death and Dying
Edited by SS Hargopal Kaur Khalsa
“If a person doesn’t know how to die and doesn’t know where the grace is or how to confront that last moment, what is the purpose of life?”—Yogi Bhajan
At some point, we are all going home. We don’t know if it will be tomorrow or many years from now. Preparing ourselves is vital—so that we can face our mortality, with neutrality and consciousness. If we are not impersonal at the point of death, “wherever your mind will take you, that shall be your next destination.” This book presents Yogi Bhajan’s teachings, in his words, on what death is, the process of dying, how to be prepared, what to chant, and how to reach a state of deathlessness.

The Sacred Way of the Sikhs flowers beautifully under the fifth Master, Guru Arjan, who composed Sukhmani Sahib—The Jewel of Peace. With tremendous subtlety and sophistication, Guru Arjan guides us to understand the essential non-dualistic nature of life.
Sikh Dharma Minister SS Ek Ong Kaar Kaur Khalsa has poetically interpreted this poem of spiritual longing and experience. “Seeing the One as the Doer of everything, we can surrender fear, anger and anxiety. When we recognize our own Divine Nature, our mind will crystallize into peace. Guru Arjan, through Sukhmani Sahib, gives humanity a wonderfully positive teaching,” says SS Ek Ong Kaar Kaur.
