It has been seven years since our beloved teacher, the Siri Singh Sahib, passed. It is not a coincidence that he passed exactly one full cycle of consciousness (seven years) before we would fully enter the Aquarian Age on 11.11.11, so that we could adjust and prepare to carry the baton ourselves, as a cohesive, integrated and Aquarian group of people.
By Guru’s grace, we have been doing just this. For example, we have prepared ourselves by stepping up beyond the psychic mantle of protection of our Teacher and we have started shifting the nature of our organization. We have also worked deeply on the Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training programs, and today they are very professional, truly international, and available to all.
It seems that our next task is to take Sikh Dharma out of the closet. All over the world people are increasingly drawn to learn Gurmukhi, to learn about Shabd Guru, to learn how to hold a Gurdwara service, and to seek ways of integrating Sikh Dharma into their own lives. This is no surprise: the wisdom and the richness of energy within the lifestyle and teachings of Sikh Dharma is the sarovar in the middle of the desert.
A Path to Experience
When all else falls apart in the Aquarian Age, Sikh Dharma will be a path to experience and live in the remembrance of the one true Reality: Ek Ong Kar. I chose to become a Minister because I can hear the call of those souls who will expect me to deliver in this capacity sooner than later.
How do we get out there and share? Well, firstly, many of us have to learn! I am so surprised that courses and events related to Sikh Dharma are so few. So the first step is that all those wonderful souls that have been living Sikh Dharma as taught by the Siri Singh Sahib for decades now can get out there to share this path as the inclusive, universal and powerful Dharma that it is.
We might need to create a platform to coordinate and promote this to happen. Second step is that we create a Minister Training. We need a cohesive program that can prepare those who long to serve as Ministers in their communities in the humility, radiance and excellence that our teacher showed us.
A Space for Sharing
Third step, we have to get together! The culture within KRI, and impact of Kundalini Yoga around the world, are changing and improving significantly since the trainers have been getting together on a regular basis. As Ministers we need that too: we need to create spaces where we can share our journeys and nurture the power of our Dharma, so that we can act as One, even when we are dispersed all over the world.
Our radiant body, when strong, is composed of a thousand suns that create one big solar field of energy that keeps all our facets together, aligned and full of light. As a group of Ministers we need to nurture our collective radiant body by being in touch with each other.
Our body of Ministers should be like the 5th element, or the vyana prana vayu which subtly, but very consciously, holds in harmonious communication/relationship the energies of all the other vayus. The body of Ministers of Sikh Dharma in the Aquarian Age has to do the same: support in grace, harmony and subtlety, with our frequency and prayer, the essence of our Dharma in its entirety.
Our next challenge? To be in tune with the times, to be courageous and aware to go beyond right and wrong, to let go of ideology, dogma and personal pain and learn how to be (and inspire others to be) sweet, conscious and strong with all, at all times. This is what our father Guru Gobind Singh expects of us – no more, no less.
