Sat Nam. Greetings and Happy New Year from New Mexico!

I am looking forward to a great new year with all of you. It is the Aquarian Age and I am delighted to be living it with you!

Speaking of greatness, KRI is honoring two individuals in 2012. The KRI Board has selected Pritam Pal Singh and Dr. Krishna Kaur Khalsa for their many years of service, steadiness and dedication to Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®. Both of these people have taught for many years, organized trainings, made valued contributions to the Aquarian Academy and inspired thousands of students and teachers over the years. I am very happy that we can honor them on our web site for all of 2012.

Did you know that 10% of everything we sell on the Source, our online store, goes to the Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings? Check out some of our new products, like our new 464 page manual “Rebirthing”, or “Everyday Devotion.” Or buy an ebook of your favorite manual for your Ipad or Kindle. Your purchases help us to continue the work of digitizing and preserving all of Yogi Bhajan’s audio and video tapes. Of course you can donate directly, too!

If you are looking for a kriya to begin the New Year and this New Age, I have a suggestion for you. It is the “Ashtang Mantra for Prosperity” kriya from the new “Rebirthing” Manual. I will be talking about it and demonstrating it on the video of the month.

Thanks again for a wonderful 2011! May your New Year and the Aquarian Age be filled with good cheer, blessings, and grace.

Kind regards and New Years blessings,

Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings

 Happy New Year from The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings!

Welcome to the year 2012! We have been anticipating the shift into the Aquarian Age for over 40 years and now that it is here, it’s a wonderful new chapter in our lives. We can use the energy of the Age to transform and uplift ourselves and our communities. It’s an exciting time to be alive on this planet.

New Year’s is always a time of reflection, retrospection and goal setting. The energy is perfectly ripe for us to discard our old paradigms and projections and bring in new, fresh insight and energy. This effect is truly magnified by the energy of the Aquarian Age, so now is a perfect time for Rebirthing.

To support whatever transformation you embark on in this new year, The Kundalini Research Institute recently released a beautiful collection of DVD lectures and manuals on Yogi Bhajan’s much cherished Rebirthing series. This set of lectures has been talked about and remembered very profoundly in many of our lives. This is the perfect season to call on the Master to be reborn. To learn more about this work, please visit:
http://www.kundaliniresearchinstitute.org/rebirthing/ 

We finished 2011 on a strong note. We got to participate in the first Winter Solstice Sadhana Celebration of the Aquarian Age. We enjoyed seeing everyone in Florida and we hope it was a great experience for each of you.

2011 also brought some amazing donors. Each and every donor, big and small, makes our work possible. Thank you to everyone for whatever support you provided in 2011.

As a non-profit, our fundraising is ongoing. Please consider starting a new monthly donation as a part of your 2012 goals. Any support makes a difference. Please support the vital and ongoing process of archiving Yogi Bhajan’s entire video & audio library. You can learn more about how to donate at the link below: http://www.yogibhajan.org/Donate.htm 

We also got many new donors that really helped us reach our financial goals in 2011. Thank you to all of our new donors:

We Are KRI

 

Sat Nam,

Blessings and Greetings and Happy New Year. As we welcome in the New Year of 2012, we are birthing a new year and a New Age as we rebirth ourselves with new intentions, goals, and commitments. At Winter Solstice each year we gather in the Northern Hemisphere in Florida to cleanse, reflect, and go deep within to reset ourselves with three days of White Tantric Yoga and our Solstice diet. It’s also a time when the Trainers of the KRI community come together at the Trainer’s Forum to share their best practices with one another and grow our skills and our connections to each other. This year we had our largest Forum ever at the Hampton Inn in Lake Wales.

I am filled with gratitude for our Global KRI community; all of the teaching and all of the service that goes out through the teachings of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Each teacher and trainer is actually an unsung hero (a term that Yogi Bhajan coined at Solstice many years ago) of KRI, uplifting through classes and by giving a smile to a person on the street. As we move into the Aquarian Age, I took the time to truly reflect on the years of our transition into this Age and our community of trainers. Our fastest growing segment of Teacher Training at this time is in our Reach Out—Teach Out segment of the population, inspired by a trainer from Florida, Dyal Kaur who died of cancer in May of 2008. She is the unsung hero of Florida.

Dyal Kaur grew the Kundalini Yoga Community of Clearwater one class at a time. She began her study of Kundalini Yoga in Trinidad with Kulwant Kaur and then brought Kundalini Yoga to her hometown of Clearwater, teaching classes wherever she could and carrying her manuals in the trunk of her car. Dyal Kaur dedicated herself to becoming a trainer – traveling to New Mexico to Train as a Trainer with Hari Kaur in the Master’s Touch Course (now known as the Immersion Course). The first Level One Teacher Training in Clearwater graduated 24 Kundalini Yoga Instructors; and in 2010 Clearwater graduated 22 Instructors; and this year the 2012 class will graduate 33 Instructors. Their first Level Two – Conscious Communication had 20 Students.

This is the story of the impact that one dedicated student of Kundalini Yoga who became a teacher and then a trainer. Her life ended before she could see the first graduating class – yet her legacy lives on. There are now four Trainers in Training in the Clearwater area – Updesh Kaur, an Associate, and Sunder Kaur, Karamjot Kaur and Jiwan Shakti Kaur, interns. These are all local heroes of Kundalini Yoga, dedicating themselves to creating Kundalini Yoga Instructors and Teachers of the Aquarian Age. I am grateful to this team and to Deva Kaur the Lead Trainer who traveled from Coral Springs to serve and uplift this community.

I encourage all of us to take time this month to reflect and thank all of those in our lives who truly come from the heart in service for the key phrase for this month is Heart over Head. As teachers and trainers we are always first students of Yogi Bhajan and what a gift this is for each one of us. Take time in stillness to sit with your soul and be grateful for the gift of these teachings in your life for through them each day is a rebirth. I also encourage all trainers to bring the Rebirthing Technology to your center if you have not already – KRI now has the Rebirthing DVDs and Manual available so you can share these classes with students. These classes impacted my life – when they first came out then on VHS – I brought them to Tucson where I was living and each week students and members of the Sangat would come together to watch them – we used the proceeds from one class to buy the next video and to have a meal. I am so excited that now these are available for everyone.

 


Blessings,

From the Editor’s Desk

 

Everyone is talking about Rebirthing! As the editor here at KRI, the moment that everyone becomes excited about something is the moment that I’ve moved on to something else. With that said, 2012 is a very exciting year for us. There are a lot of new and exciting things developing, both professionally and personally. We are looking forward to our first publication with an international author; a brand new course with an accompanying meditation manual, The 21 Stages of Meditation by Gurucharan Singh; and an extension of the I AM A WOMAN series. Each of these projects represents a rebirthing of a sort: a continuation of our Everyday Series but from an vital and interesting new voice with Sadhana Singh from Rome; a taste of what Yogi Bhajan saw when he envisioned what it means to experience Realization and to be an Aquarian Teacher in its fullest manifestation with the 21 Stages of Meditation; and an opportunity to go even more deeply into what it means to be a woman and to be creative with Pritpal Kaur, a senior trainer in the women’s teachings of Yogi Bhajan.

There’s lots of change going on in my own life as well. It’s seems the deep immersion that I experience on a daily basis here, working with these teachings, is bearing fruit. Obstacles that I once thought were impenetrable have fallen away. Dreams I thought long forgotten suddenly in bloom—even in the dead of winter! The Aquarian Age has certainly delivered on its promise and we’re just beginning to taste the potential that will be realized in the years ahead.

Give yourself an opportunity to be reborn. Buy the Rebirthing manual and meditate on Yogi Bhajan’s words of transformation and healing. Or purchase one DVD and practice it over and over—or the entire series and each day, each week, drop a little more, become a little clearer, remove one more brick in the wall until the way is clear and the future is brighter than you could ever have imagined. The Aquarian Age is here! We can’t afford to carry our subconscious fears, our dramas and traumas, any longer—not even one more day. Whatever you resolve this New Year’s Day, resolve to be rid of fear and to live in love—for love is all there is.
