Yogi's ji's Sikhs
Yogi Bhajan born as Harbhajan Singh Puri (1929-2004) was a spiritual teacher. He learned Kundalini Yoga with Master Sant Hazara Singh and became proficient himself at the young age of sixteen.
He served in the Indian Army and after military service he worked for the Indian Government, until 1968. He then traveled across to the West. He first went to Canada and then to Los Angeles, where he gave his first public lecture in the United States on January 5, 1969, at the East West Cultural Center. There he stated his firm conviction that it is the birthright of every human being to be Healthy, Happy, and Holy.
In 1971, Yogi Bhajan was bestowed the title of Siri Singh Sahib by Sant Chanan Singh at the Akal Tahkat ( seat of power of the Sikh religion) and was authorized to ordain Ministers and perform the Amrit Sanchar (Sikh ceremony of initiation). Through his efforts, Sikh Dharma became officially incorporated and recognized by the US Government as a Religion on April 10, 1973. Majority of his followers wear white clothes.
