The true man of God sees no man as good or evil,
no man as friend or enemy. --

What does Ek Ong Kar mean? It means God and me,

"Recognize the Divine light within all,
and do not consider social class or status; there
are no classes or castes, hereafter." Guru Nanak Dev


The technology of consciousness taught by Siri Singh Sahib, aka Yogi Bhajan,
has the power to uplift all humanity and to expand awareness without the use of
or external stimulation. Our mission is to advocate and teach the practice of
yoga and meditation as directed by Yogi Bhajan for which we seek the assistance
of organizations in the United States, India, and around the world. Furthermore, it is
our mission and blessing to advocate diversity and cultural competency as taught
by Guru Nanak Dev, thereby bringing to the fore issues of color and gender for the
purpose of uplifting people who have a history of being marginalized, using social
media and other means as platforms to inform various communities of the experiences
and concerns of marginalized people with regard to the necessity for social change,
social justice, inclusion, compassion, tolerance, cultural literacy, and growth in our
human relations going forward in order to better facilitate the transformation of global
consciousness from tribalism, instability, and extremism, to harmony, cooperation
and enduring peace. In addition, we support other organizations that advocate this
transformation as taught by Guru Nanak Dev throughout his life and travels.


Attention Prospective Yatra Participants

Sat Nam. The Deg Tegh Fateh Yatra is a spiritual journey for Teachers and Students of Kundalini Yoga and Sikh Dharma from around the world. Sponsored and funded by ACT, Adhoc Committee Thirteen, this year's Yatra will depart for India December 26, 2016, and return January 08, 2017. ACT is blessed by God's grace with the resources to offer free room and board for participating Teachers and Students. This means that full accommodations and meals will be provided.

ACT requests Yatra participants to arrive in New Delhi on December 26th from where we will proceed directly to Amritsar. The Yatra will end in New Delhi on January 08, 2017, after which participants may choose to stay longer at their own expense.

While in India Deg Tegh Fateh Yatra participants will serve ACT's stated mission by: 1.) exploring the idea of setting up Teacher Training facilities in India, wherein Kundalini Yoga Teachers are encouraged to share their knowledge of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan with the Indian populace, 2.) promoting and inspiring the Indian populace to practice Guru's technology, and 3.) meeting with individuals and organizations that promote and inspire the technology.

BTW: Deg Tegh Fateh Yatra is open to Kundalini Yoga Teachers and Students and any Sikh Dharma Teachers who want to share their knowledge and experience with the people of India. You will not be required to teach or train in India on this exploratory Yatra, and there are no strict or hard rules about your teaching experience, except to actively share your knowledge and experience of Kundalini Yoga. Once a Teacher Training facility is organized and established in India at a future date, ACT requests that participating Kundalini Yoga Teachers consider visiting India on a regular basis to teach and train individuals who want to become Level 1 Kundalini Yoga Teachers. Please read on.


Participants will explore and assist with the following:

Yatra participants will visit Golden Temple, the 350th Birth Anniversary Shatbdi event at Patna Sahib, and historic Gurdwaras in Punjab and Delhi in order to experience the essence of Sikhism.

Organize and teach Kundalini Yoga Classes throughout India to be taught by Certified Kundalini Yoga Teachers.

Organize, develop, and administer Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Centers.

Organize, develop, and administer a Sikh Dharma Ashram in India.

Foster friendship with Siri Singh Sahib Ji's (aka Yogi Bhajan) contacts in India with the intention of inspiring Sikhs and others in Punjab and throughout India. Read on.

NOTICE: Local room and board and local transportation (excluding international and domestic air and train travel) will be provided free of charge by Adhoc Committee Thirteen for Deg Tegh Fateh Yatra participants. Participants are welcome to an extended stay beyond the schedule below at their own expense. (See meaning of Deg Tegh Fateh.) IMPORTANT: Space is limited.

ACT's Twofold Mission

Adhoc Committee 13, aka ACT, is a not for profit, volunteer social action group, whose mission is to use social media as a platform for (1) teaching the technology of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation; and (2) informing multiple and diverse communities of the life experiences and concerns of marginalized people with regard to the necessity for dialogue, social justice, inclusion, compassion, tolerance, cultural literacy, and growth in our human relations as championed by Guru Nanak Dev in order to better facilitate the current worldwide shift in global consciousness from tribalism, instability, extremism and discord, to harmony, cooperation and enduring peace. See

It is important for ACT to hear the concerns and suggestions, especially those of people of color, in order to encourage and enable truthful, transparent, and transformational interactions between those cultures, religions, ideas, beliefs, lifestyles, races, sexual orientation and customs, which differ from their own.

Ek Ong Kar
Ex Uno Plures
Source  of  Self

One Creator - One Diversity
God and me, me and God are One.


The word-symbol (13) is derived from Gurmukhi, meaning One Creator of Creation; From One Many, or Ex Uno Plures, meaning all things come from One Source, i.e. all mankind comes from One Creator as championed by the 15th century Sikh Master, Guru Nanak. When stylized in English characters, is represented by the number 13, as in Adhoc Committee 13, or more simply, the acronym ACT.

NOTE: In the eyes of the enlightened student of religion, there is only One Creator; the same Creator worshipped by various religions, and known by various names and descriptions, e.g., in Islam, it's Allah; in Christianity and Judaism, it's GOD (the Generator, Organizer, Destroyer); in Hinduism, it's Ram; in Sikhism, it's Wahe Guru or Akal Purkh. These are all the same Infinite Being masquerading as the diversity of creation while wearing the mask of what Sikhs, Hindus and others call Maya. See More.

Diversity: The quality or state of having people who are of different races or who come from different cultures within a group or organization.

Truthful: Words, ideas or actions that accurately represent a reality, a genuine transparency.

Transparent: The quality of being able to be seen through; or easy to notice or understand; not secretive. Transparency is Truth made manifest. Transparency is intellectual honesty. Transparency can be exercised without exposing confidential contacts. Transparency is essential in order to build trust in relationships, and to clarify and resolve conflicted issues.

Transformational: Having to do with life-changing practices or events.

Many individuals as well as organizations attempt to act in secrecy and with false intentions. At the same time these entities tend to covertly gather intelligence and work to keep their affairs unknown in an attempt to remain unaccountable.

The U.S. government, National Security Agency (NSA), banks, investment firms, philanthropic organizations, religious institutions, corporate sporting association leagues, like the National Football League (NFL), etc. come to mind. When left unchecked, organizations have a tendency to become opaque, exclusive, monochromatic, and eventually tribalistic.

Historically, opaque entities became corrupted such as Unto Infinity (UI), even criminal, like Federation Internationale de Football (FIFA). In this Age of Transparency, opaque entities are seen by their constituents as dysfunctional, dishonest, untrustworthy and irrelevant. See Signs of Kali Yuga. See ACT Kriya. See

"When left unchecked, organizations have a tendency to become
opaque, exclusive, monochromatic, and eventually tribal-like."

"How can any organization monitor member attitudes toward diversity issues
including race, if it does not know the demographics of its organization? A
common requirement amongst governmental agencies is to regularly inquire
of ethnic and marginalized members as to their perceptions and grievances.
Any organization that fails to maintain open communication and dialogue with
its constituency is at risk of dysfunction, loss of credibility, and irrelevancy."


Ex Uno Plures
From One Many
Diversity is our heritage

Diversity: The quality or state of having people who are of different
races or who have different cultures within a group or organization.

Guru Nanak Dev

Recognize the Divine light within all, and do not consider social class
or status; there is no class or caste, hereafter. Guru Nanak Dev

We're all part of One, and One is part of all. Be prosperous, be
generous, be kind and be compassionate. Yogi Bhajan

America must work to make diversity an advantage. Hari Singh Bird

As humanity enters the Space Age, how will we resonate with Grays and
Greens when we can't relate to Blacks, Browns and Whites? Hari Singh Bird

First you have to master yourself and then you will become teachers.
Teacher is very open, a public park where anybody can walk in; so teacher
has to be very clean. Your conduct has to be crystal clear and you have to be
absolutely transparent. Only then can you be a teacher. Yogi Bhajan 5/7/1969

Ang Sang Wahe Guru

Ang Sung Wahe Guru celebrates the realization that there is no piece or part of ourselves,
no action, and no life that is not already the living vibration of the Infinite. IT is all God.
We are all one unified, pluralistic field of Diversity. See

"It is incumbent on those who know to teach those who do not know."

Due to the fact that People of Color who remain silent enable White people to remain culturally illiterate, it is incumbent on people of color to stand up and speak out in order to promote cultural competency among White populations. See Recommended Reading. See Required Reading. See See The Butterfly Effect. See Definitions. See What Diversity Is. See What Diversity Is Not.

Points To Ponder

"You're not going to solve the problem if it's not being talked about."
President Barack Obama on race, December 19, 2014.

"Discourse about racism is not meant to stir up feelings of guilt.
Discourse is meant to drive people to action against injustice.
Question is, are we mature enough to sit down and discuss
issues of diversity, including religion, gender and race?"

"Since the election of President Obama many Americans claim to
be weary of the ongoing conversation about racism. Think about the
weariness of people of color who have waited for centuries for any
substantive discourse to occur. That conversation has just begun."

"Are there even occasional conversations between White eyes
and Colored eyes regarding the issues of diversity and racism and
their impact and complexities within our American communities today?
Issues to do with diversity are not going to go away just because we
deny that they exist, or because they cause us discomfort to discuss.
We must promote pluralism as did Guru Nanak throughout his ministry."

"The human mind was created to discriminate, e.g., make choices between
up and down, in and out, black and white, etc. We must remain aware of our
tendency to use our discretionary abilities in order to marginalize and repress
people with whom we differ. We need to constantly see to it that we advocate for
pluralism, against tribalism, in the interest of justice as taught by Guru Nanak Dev.
Our choices are to live for each other, or to live at each other." Hari Singh Bird Khalsa

It is incumbent on those who know
to teach those who do not know.

What Diversity Is  

The quality or state of having people who are of different races
or who have different cultures within a group or organization.
