Sat Nam and Greetings from New Mexico!

2010 has been a wonderful and productive year for KRI. Teacher Training is growing world -wide and the Aquarian Trainer Academy is growing is participation and sophistication.

We have produced several great products for teachers and students this year: Everyday Grace, Transformations Volumes 1 and 2, Learn the Gong, Masters Touch and I Am a Woman DVD series.

Our two summer courses were magnificent, and The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings archival preservation project continues to make very steady progress.

I would like to draw your attention to some new products and features in this issue. We have 8 new DVD’s from the Rebirthing series of lectures by Yogi Bhajan. These lectures and meditations are very powerful and they have my highest recommendation.

Transformations, Volume Two, Serving the Infinite is also available. Many teachers use these two volumes for course curriculums. We have created two course curriculums using these wonderful manuals. You can find them here: Half Day Workshop / Full Day Workshop

KRI has a Seal of Approval process. We approve products from authors that represent the teachings of Yogi Bhajan with accuracy and integrity. Here is a list of approved products and where you can obtain them.

My personal thanks goes out to the KRI Board of Directors who continue to be actively engaged in the work of KRI and dedicated to our success.

Many thanks to those who have donated to our year-end Capital Campaign, your support means a lot to me and is much appreciated.

May you have a blessed Winter Solstice celebration and may your Holidays be filled with happiness, grace and fun with family and friends!

Yogi Bhajan Library of TeachingsBuilding a Culture


“Build your life around Summer and Winter Solstice.” –Yogi Bhajan

Yogi Bhajan encouraged us to come together twice a year. He wanted to build a culture of mutuality, self-discipline, peace and prosperity; a community that could withstand all the division and polarity he saw coming with the change of the Age. He wanted us to continue to dip our toe into the stream of group consciousness so that we wouldn’t feel so alone. He wanted us to serve each other so that we would never forget the gift of Guru Ram Das.

So, we come and we gather together to celebrate with one another, to welcome the light and to prepare for the New Year. November 11th marked the beginning of the final year of the 21-year cusp. The New Age is just around the corner and we need each other more than ever if we’re going to find happiness and peace. The Earth is changing; and we, too, must change.

“The axle of the Earth has changed, point nine degrees; the weather is changing, circumstances are changing. This is the cusp year of the Age of Aquarius, five years have gone, sixteen remain in the balance. Changes are going to be tremendously unbearable. This is an Information Age. The Information Age is a great Age, we have the information. But what will you do about it if you have no experience to handle that information?”

“Life is life and it needs to be understood. For that there is the Age of Aquarius, a new age of living in reality; not the Jewish way, not the Sikh way, not the Christian way, not the Buddhist way, not the Muslim way, not the Tao way. It’s a way new way! Dharma will supersede your karma. You will no longer look outside for miracles, but you will look within for the miracles; you shall be attractive enough for things to come to you, not that you have to go to things... Every person in the coming 25 years has to work his way to becoming self-conscious.”

“Because this is the period of the cusp, the transit between the two times, I am asking not for anything. I just want you to understand the time has changed. In this transitory period, the expectation is very clear in our mind and in our heart, we want to leave behind a quality: a quality of understanding, a quality of healing, a quality of compassion, a quality of truthfulness, a quality of radiance...we have something to achieve.”

We must achieve it together. As we gather together this Winter Solstice, with friends and family, fellow practitioners and sadh sangat, let’s remember that we’re not alone. We’re all in this together.

Please donate to The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings this holiday season. Come together as students, practitioners, teachers and trainers to ensure these teachings live on to serve, heal and uplift the Aquarian Age and all the generations to follow. Please give today at www.yogibhajan.org.

We Are KRI

As the days grow shorter and shorter, we look forward to our annual celebration of Winter Solstice. A time where students, teachers and trainers of Kundalini Yoga gather to meditate and go deep within to prepare for the coming year. It is truly a gathering of old and new friends who share a common love of our practice of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®. This year I am preparing for this Winter Solstice gathering by practicing the teacher’s sadhana: 40 days of 2 1/2 hours of Long Ek Ong Kar in the Amrit Vela. I would love to hear how others are preparing for this final Winter Solstice of the Piscean Age. I will be collecting your stories so that we can share them with the global community.

This year KRI will have our second annual Winter Solstice Trainer’s Forum. If you are a member of the Aquarian Trainer Academy or an applicant, this is an excellent opportunity to get up to date on what is happening in the Academy. At the Forum we will discuss the competencies of a Trainer, the Roles and Responsibilities of a Mentor in the Academy and the Ten Units of Study for Level One Teacher Training. If you want more information on these topics, please contact me, hck@kriteachings.org.

Also at Winter Solstice, KRI and IKYTA have teamed up to present classes that deepen your understanding and sophistication as Aquarian Teachers. These classes provide CEUs for both IKYTA and Yoga Alliance.

  • Experience and Awaken the Teacher Within You. For new Instructors and those considering continuing toward Level Three Teacher Training. Upma Kaur Khalsa and Hari Charn Kaur Khalsa

  • Nadhi Sodhana Kriya. Expand and deepen your ability to teach from Shuniya. Deva Kaur Khalsa

  • Conscious Communication: Sunder Singh Khalsa

  • Kriya in Kundalini Yoga: Awtar Kaur Khalsa

  • SuperHealth: As a Kundalini Yoga Teacher how can I serve people in recovery. Hari Charn Kaur Khalsa

Blessings to all of you in the Season of Winter Solstice. I would love to hear how We Are KRI can serve you in your practice and delivery of the Teachings to all.

Many blessings, with gratitude,

 

Humbly,

Hari Charn Kaur Khalsa

Building a Spiritual Family
 

By Guru Tera K. Khalsa, 3HO Aquarian Times Editor
 

When we come together in prayer and meditation, we change the world. With our consciousness, we are having an impact.


"I realize that we are few in numbers compared to the billions of people on the planet, but do you realize what a tremendous impact we few are making, and can make? We are a whole culture, we are a new era, we are the pioneers of the Aquarian Age, and we are building a spiritual family. We are all very blessed to be here, we belong to each other. Look to the divinity within and keep up. 'If you keep up, you will be kept up.'"


—Shakti Parwha Kaur, Mother of 3HO
 

In spiritual community we can experience and renew our spirit and see that love is really the tie that binds us to each other. Our 3HO spiritual family is diverse and knows no boundaries. It is open to all and excludes no one who longs to belong and who desires to make a difference in the world.
