This transformed the relationship the Sikhs had with their Guru, who had been in human form for more than 200 years. As Sikhs we transitioned at that time from a human Guru to the Shabad Guru: the word of Truth, and from that day we have bowed to no man, only to God. This beautiful gift came with the grace of meeting the challenges to stay in faith with the Guru through every test of time. Since that day 302 years ago, devout Sikhs have been keeping the consciousness of the Dharma alive to pass on to us, the future generations. Just like then, these are great times of change and tests. Another two years will bring the change of the Age. The challenges are many and each of us is going through deep transformation: personally Siri Guru Granth Sahib Shabad Guru and collectively. As we build our strength, our courage and our fortitude to keep up, let us appreciate the infinite blessings the Guru has brought into our Siri Singh Sahib Lecture lives, and grow together to meet the test of these times. The Siri Singh Sahib once said that he prayed for difficulties to go away, but only more came. He learned that he had to pray for the wings to fly over the difficulties and get through any challenges with the Grace of the Guru. Let us pray to our divine Guru that we may bow before him and let our wings carry us to our destiny. Wahe Guru ji ka Khalsa, Wahe Guru ji ki Fateh! (Excerpted from lecture on Guru Ram Das birthday 1987) Sikh religion does not mean anything at all if there is a personality problem, or if there is a personality worship, or there is a personality to adhere to. The fundamental of Sikh religion is very simple, because what we have here is the Shabad Guru. It will never change. We may change or not, that's our problem. We may understand or not, that's our insecurity, our bad luck. We may not have that knowledge. We may try to pretend that with our force and with our might we can overrule things. But what a wonderful situation it is that we have Guru which will say the same thing that it said on the day one, what it says today, and it always will say. This is the beauty where every man can rejoice, where every man can understand. Guru should be one who should take you from darkness to light, but Guru should not be a person or a place or a thing which can change it to a status. It is status of all statuses. It is the ultimate refuge of the mankind and that's what Siri Guru Granth represents today. We don't understand. We still call it "holy book." That is very naive on our part. We don't understand the greatness and the grace of the word spoken and said, and recorded and written. The world shall come to an understanding, and that's what is going to happen, that we, a handful of Sikhs when we'll reach in ourself the purity and piety, when we will have the dignity and the L E C T U R E C O N T I N U E D O N P A G E 4

2 P A G E 2 SS Gurubachan Singh & Dr Ardass Singh P U B L I C S E R V I C E & T E A C H I N G Lord of Miracles Journey On September 27 th the Lord of Miracles Tour in Honor of Guru Ram Das was inaugurated in Lima, Peru. For the past eight years, we have had the privilege and honor to travel all over South America sharing the wisdom of Shabd Guru, Kundalini Yoga and the science of breath. This year SS Gurubachan Singh Khalsa, Ram Das Singh Khalsa and Dr Ardass Singh Khalsa from Frankfurt, Germany are traveling to 12 cities in 10 countries throughout Central and South America over the course of 40 days. This tour is the inspiration of Siri Singh Sahib, who, more than 9 years ago, instructed S.S. Gurubachan Singh to share the wisdom of the Gurus and the technology of Kundalini Yoga in South America as the Siri Singh Sahib had done throughout the Western Hemisphere. Women s prison, to teach them to meditate, chant and feel inspired. If any of you have met Dr Ardass, who traveled with Yogi Bhajan on several occasions to India you all understand what a graceful and powerful healer he is. S.S. Gurubachan Singh Khalsa then taught about Reconnecting with yourself in Times Lunch with Peruvian Sangat Prison guards meditating First stop: Lima, Peru The sangat in Lima have been working to bring the teachings of Kundalini Yoga and Shabd Guru to the prison population in their country. This has become such a successful program that now the four main prisons in the country offer classes in Kundalini Yoga. It is amazing to see 300 inmates chanting and meditating, and only makes us more convinced that our work is so great to reach people when they are young to help them avoid the entrapments of life that can place them behind bars. On the first day, the three of us taught more than 300 inmates in the Men's maximum security prison. The impact was incredible and the change that they all went through was nothing short of the miracle of Guru Ram Das. Afterwards Dr Ardass Singh and the Peruvian sangat taught another class to the Maximum security prison inmates doing Kundalini Yoga of Uncertainty". The hall was filled with just fewer than 300 people of Lima who came from all aspects of Peruvian society. S.S. Gurubachan Singh explained to the group the power and importance of the breath and that through the breath you can know how to handle your life. Every answer to the challenges of life is contained in the breath. In these years there is a tremendous disconnection between one's self and reality and as a result people are confused, stressed, worried, fearful and depressed. We all experienced connecting with ourselves through the simple techniques of Kundalini Yoga and mantras from Shabd Guru. In the end everyone was uplifted, recharged and happy. The next day we had the opportunity to work with healers form all over Lima's poor neighborhoods. About 100 women participated in learning about how disease is dis-ease. To control your health and keep away from disease can be reached through proper diet, exercise and meditation. Dr Ardass Singh spoke on this importance as well and relating to how the Siri Guru Granth Sahib teaches us to live lives of C O N T I N U E D O N P A G E 3

3 P U B L I C S E R V I C E & T E A C H I N G Waiting to Follow the Guru It s mid-october and starting to get cool and a bit foggy in the early mornings. At The Siri Guru Nanak Sikh Temple here in Yuba City, devoted Sikhs have been at work for several weeks for the biggest event of the year, Naggar Kirtan [Sikh Procession]. The exact numbers are rumored to be around 70,000 people - devotees who will come to town for that weekend. Motels are booked; every home has out of town visitors. Of course, the parade is the big event, the reason everyone makes the trip. But the bazaar! Just think of all the shopping to be done: acres of vendors, increasing in numbers & varieties every year, hundreds of stalls selling everything one otherwise might only find in Punjab. Just about anything you can find in the bazaars around the Golden Temple can be found here: kirpans, books, jewelry, bright fabrics, cheap toys, thick blankets, an endless supply of free food: rotis, garbanzos, yogurt, dahl, paranthas, freshly squeezed sugar cane juice. Today the parking lots and acreage around the temple loom empty waiting for spaces An update from Yuba City, CA where every year more than 70,000 Sikhs gather to walk in a procession through the streets in honor of Guru Gaddee Day, the day the Siri Guru Granth Sahib became the Guru in P A G E 3 Siri Guru Granth Sahib Float in Yuba City Naggar Kirtan to be filled with cars, trucks, families with children coming to enjoy the weekend s festivities & joy. The temple sits on several acres outside the city; these acres will be filled soon with colorful floats waiting their turn to join the parade, with the most decorated and bright carriage taking our Siri Guru Granth Sahib through the streets of our town. Panj Piare will walk ahead to guide the way, flower petals will bless the way, sweepers will clean the road - and thousands upon thousands will follow the Guru. A day of joy, sharing the indescribable wisdom of our divine scriptures, words which have uplifted and inspired us throughout the year. Very soon now...november 6 & 7th. Wahe Guru! Siri Pritam Kaur has lived in Yuba City, CA for more than 25 years. She encourages all who wish to come for this event to join the festivities. Dr Ardass S with Peruvian baby truth in all aspects. That afternoon we were invited to a wonderful paella lunch made from beautiful Peruvian produce, and Spanish saffron rice. This was a truly memorable part of the tour as we visited the home of Guru Simran Kaur and her husband Don Miguel. From the lunch we headed towards the women's maximum security prison. The women were overjoyed to see us and the class was nothing short of beautiful. 20% of the population of this prison has been practicing Kundalini Yoga for 1 year. As a result there is marked decrease in aggression, violence and substance abuse. The women members of the sangat who are instrumental in this seva of teaching at the prison are Guru Tera Kaur, Guru Simran Kaur, Santokh Kaur, Baltej Kaur and Lord of Miracles Journey, Continued Dev Murti Kaur. These angels of Peru have been generously giving their time and effort as Kundalini Yoga teachers. It has been a great honor for all of us on this wonderful 8th Lord of Miracles Tour in Honor Prison inmates with SS Gurubachan S & Dr Ardass S of Guru Ram Das to participate with them.

4 P A G E 4 When...we reach ALWAYS for Guru Ram Das, there's nothing we should worry about. Our affairs will be adjusted. R E S O U R C E S Siri Singh Sahib Lecture (continued from page 1) divinity, when we'll have the essence of one single line: "Ang Sang Wahe Guru," when we'll understand in the all realms of our tattwas, in our chakras, in our gunas, in our being, in our projections, in our rejections, in our pain, in our pleasure, in our richness... when in all that we reach AL- WAYS for Guru Ram Das, there's nothing we should worry about. Our affairs will be adjusted. I understand. I understand you that you want certain things. I know everybody wants certain things. It's not wrong to want certain things. But when you want something and as the God and Guru adjust it, then you accept it. That is the beauty of the man. The difference between animal and man is only very simple. When a man desires something, his state of ecstasy, in micro consciousness to macro consciousness to his magnetic field, has the projection of that attraction but under no circumstances it is finalized, because the entire divinity in its own projection correlates to it, but when an animal desires something, it is one pointed. Either it gets it or it does not. Our totality is sometimes so limited, our desires are sometimes so few, that even the birds laugh at us: "What are these humans doing?" What is happening in the Western world is very beautiful. First time man has found out that he can worship something which is steady, steadfast, clear, pure and conscious. First time! There's no man here. No man ever shall be. That's the beauty of Sikh Dharma. A poor person can come and bow before Siri Guru Granth. A rich person can come and bow before Siri Guru Granth. He may understand or not understand. This is first time that we have to understand that even if we are very wise... if we put all the bibles on the donkey we are not going to get priest out of him, and if we collect all the priests in the world, we are not going to get Christ out of him. It is a question of consciousness. It is that one line: "The Sikh who calls himself the Sikh of the Guru may rise in the ambrosial hour." This one line. It is one line. The question is, are we willing to obey or are we willing to delay? Guru said something very beautiful: "Ik Ong Kar Sat Nam Karta Purkh Nirbhao Nirvair Akal Moorat Ajoonee Saibhang, Gur Prasad*." It is a very tall order. If you want to look at it, it looks like it is impossible. But it is a very simple order. Guru answered it. How to achieve it? "Jap! Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach, Haibhee Sach, Naanak Hosee Bhee Sach." See the truth in all. See that dignity in all. Do not separate the Creator and the creation. We are here to pay our samskars, our karmas. Somebody's lucky enough, he becomes rich, he doesn't understand. He feels very wonderful and he gets all the facility on this earth. But there is emptiness in him. Richness does not mean that you have reached with your own consciousness. Your own soul may not be your friend. Your own consciousness may not come through. Your own intuition may not serve you. The idea is to remain pure every day, idea is to repeat the words of the Guru, idea is to understand Gurbani is not the hassling job... it is a science, simple enough, that when your tongue will rotate with those twists of permutation and combination, when you will read Rehiras and it will make the hypothalamus to totally compute for you the atmosphere through which you have to go through the night. Then you have not to pour bourbon on the rocks and make your head sore and do weird things. You need energy. Without this you cannot live. You think by taking vitamins and taking that kind of stuff you are going to be fine. That's not true. Your spirit is hungry. Then your entire being is empty. You feel the shallowness. But when you repeat the gurbani, when you do the simran, it gives you the essence to do seva. Seva is what? Seva is not to show off. Seva is to serve with the feeling that you glorify the Guru. You wear bana. You wear it. It identifies you with the oneness of Guru. You read bani, it identifies you with the oneness of the Guru. You do seva and simran, it identifies with your identity. Once you find your own identity in a pure form, you are above all. Then the pair of opposites do not affect you. Trust your Guru. Trust your God. It is in you. That's what Guru Ram Das totally stands for. Today we may feel that Sikh Dharma is going through changes. We may feel that we cannot visit the Golden Temple. These are all physical restrictions, but who can take away from us our Golden Temple? It is in our hearts. It is in our memory. It is in our breath of life. Anybody can attack Akal Takhat, but on every sixth of the month, we celebrate that day, and we'll keep on celebrating till Akal Takhat will never be in a position that it can ever be attacked again. We are going to be a nation all around the world. Teachings of Yogi Bhajan 1987

5 R E S O U R C E S P A G E 5 Siri Sikdar Sahiba Sardarni Guru Amrit Kaur Khalsa Sardarni Guru Amrit Kaur Khalsa was appointed to the Office of the Siri Sikdar Sahiba (Chief Spiritual Minister) by the Siri Singh Sahib and serves to maintain the quality of spiritual practice within the Sikh Dharma communities. Contact Victory in Faith 2010 has been an extraordinary year of growth and change for our community. The dynamics we faced in this year brought forth a need to cultivate our spirit with faith to bring about victory to our future as a Dharma. The Guru was guiding our spirits to face our challenges in grace and with an attitude of gratitude knowing this beautiful Dharmic path was blessed to be victorious. Throughout history, Sikhs have faced similar challenges, each story was a test of character, caliber and commitment. Faith in our future is God s gift as we bring about a much needed change. Our challenges have awakened us collectively to define our unity and deliver our purpose together. We worked together to inspire, educate and take a stand. So many blessings came as opportunities for our community to grow in our spirit as we began to define our future together and to give and support each other with our hearts, minds and resources. Gratefully the sangat rose to the occasion to carry the Siri Singh Sahib s legacy forward as we collectively created new events, such as the Siblings of Destiny Meetings has been a year of courage to build our spirit to confront life s challenges and deliver our soul to God in Prayer. In gratitude, we have shared this year guided by the Grace of the Guru and a deep love for the mission the Siri Singh Sahib left us to carry forward. Bhai Sahiba s Corner During this time of Guru Gaddee, as we look with gratitude at all of the blessings the Guru brings into our lives, let s understand what an Akandh Path is and how it affects us: Akandh Path means unbroken recitation. An Akandh Path is the continuous recitation or reading aloud of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. The Akandh Path takes fortyeight hours to complete (seventy-two hours when reading English translation). While reciting we are repeating the exact same words that were spoken by the Guru during their divine communion with the Infinite. Reciting this bani gives us that same experience of union with God. Guru Gobind Singh s own delivery of the Granth to Bhai Mani Singh took exactly two days of continuous recitation. Without standing or stopping he recited the entire Siri Guru Granth Sahib to Bhai Mani Singh, as it is today. In this way Guru Gobind Singh not only delivered the Granth to his battle worn Sikhs, but he delivered it to the hands of all posterity as well. The Akandh Path re-creates this act by Guru Gobind Singh, and thereby creates the sound current that elevates a person s consciousness to the Guru s consciousness. The Sikh comes to the Akandh Path to experience direct communication with the Guru. You speak the Guru s words, you speak the Guru s concept of God s words, and you hear them being spoken. There is no higher or more sophisticated meditation possible in a human body, within a human lifetime, than to hear your own voice reciting the Guru s words. The effects of the Akandh Path are not confined to the reader alone. By virtue of the unbroken recitation, the vibration of the Gurbani comes to permeate all of the surroundings. It creates a unique and auspicious environment of protection and blessings, whereby at any moment a listener or reader may be merged with the sound current of the Infinite, and in this way lives are changed forever. - Excerpted from Bhai Sahiba Bibiji s book: Living Reality Dr. Bibiji Inderjit Kaur, the wife of the Siri Singh Sahib, was appointed by him to the position of Bhai Sahiba (Chief Religious Minister) of Sikh Dharma. She is known around the globe as a revered "mother" and honored as an ambassador of good will for all.

6 P A G E 6 Amrit Kaur, SDW Dasvandh Office P R O S P E R I T Y Last week one evening I got a phone call. At that time it is usually salespeople calling so I normally try to avoid them. Sure enough it was a surveyor asking if I could give my opinion on childhood immunizations. The woman sounded very nice, and I was thinking to myself, how bad the economy is right now and how hard it must be for these telemarketers so I decided to go ahead and take the survey. After about 5 minutes, when she said we were not even halfway through, I decided to end the call as I didn t have the time to finish. A few days later I got a letter in the mail from that person saying how much she appreciated me taking the time to talk with her and enclosed $5 cash. She asked me if I could continue the call at a later time for an additional payment. This to me is an example of Dasvandh at work. I gave my time (5 minutes) and was rewarded by the universe for doing it. I encourage you all to look for ways that Dasvandh is at work in your life. - Amrit Kaur, SDW Dasvandh Office Personal Dasvandh Stories The other day, I was driving down a mountain road after collecting firewood. The truck hit a bump, swerved and almost threw us over the edge. All of a sudden, we regained control and corrected our course. The next day, I wrote a check to Dasvandh, to the Infinite, in gratitude for being saved from a life-threatening accident. This is my relationship with Dasvandh. I give out of gratitude for all of the blessings in my life. I give to celebrate joyous occasions, simple everyday blessings and for life saving interventions. My life has become an exercise of gratitude. I am happier, things flow smoother and I feel more protected than ever before. Update: I just brought in another check to Dasvandh in gratitude for another near miss! Dasvandh is truly a blessing. - Anonymous Touch every heart, bow your head, bless everybody, and you shall be blessed.

SALDEF honors Ravitej Singh Sikh American Legal Defense & Education Fund honored Ravitej Singh Khalsa from Eugene, OR on October 16th, for his efforts of more than 25 years to repeal the law in Oregon which prevented teachers from wearing religious garb in the classroom. This law had been in place since 1922 and was finally repealed earlier this year. Legal Update Oregon Attorney General Files Similar Lawsuit against UI, GTM & Others! On Thursday, October 7, 2010, the Oregon Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Unto Infinity LLC, GTM LLC, the Siri Singh Sahib Corporation, plus Kartar Singh Khalsa, Sopurkh Kaur Khalsa, Peraim Kaur Khalsa, Siri Karm Kaur Khalsa, and the other 5 members of GTM, LLC namely Karam Singh Khalsa, Ajeet Singh Khalsa, Guru Hari Singh Khalsa, Gurudhan Singh Khalsa and Robert Ziehl. The suit was filed under seal for a 30-day period of time, so the specific causes of action are not currently public. Our lawyers are working to have the seal removed as soon as possible. This Attorney General is an experienced defender of the public interest. He served as trial counsel with the Enron Task Force as well as convicted several high profile organized crime prosecutions. Here is a link to his bio: We are bolstered by the entry of the AG into this case as it will further expose the defendants actions, and remain confident that through the efforts of our lawyers and with the help of the Oregon AG we will continue to identify, secure, safeguard and recover assets meant for the Dharma and its future. D E F E N D I N G O U R D H A R M A Bheta The Siri Singh Sahib once said: There's a word in Sikh Dharma and its a very beautiful word, it s called Bheta. Bheta means offering...bheta is: You give to the Superior. We bring our offering to the Guru...Normally we bring our offering to the Guru but today we bring our offering to the Guru with a petition. And that is a Sikh tradition...bheta is a very complex situation...bheta justifies the fact that you offer your body, mind, and soul. You become a martyr. You become a total sacrifice for the Guru's cause. Bheta means you give your wealth, you give your health, you give your time, you give everything in the world before anything you believe is your altar, something you believe which is higher, something you believe is a cause.
