The 3HO Solstice Sadhana Experience






Song by Simran Kaur -- Lyrics by Yogi Bhajan

 

Summer Solstice Sadhana 2016 Schedule

"Whether you challenge the challenge or you give in to the
challenge, that is what decides your spirituality." Yogi Bhajan

"Sadhana we do only so that we can be clear headed." Yogi Bhajan

"The two most important things in your body are the upper palate, which
is the base of the hypothalamus, because the hypothalamus controls the
entire nervous system, and the tip of the tongue, which affects the central
nerve channel, sushumna, that controls your entire psyche." Yogi Bhajan

“What is sadhana? It is a process, which you do every day to grow, to be.
There is a fight in this lifetime: to be or not to be. Nobody can destroy you.
You destroy yourself by not being yourself.” Yogi Bhajan 7/05/1981

“If you do not do the sadhana, where will the spirit and strength come from to
carry you through? Times are getting heavier, let your soul and your heart
lift you through the fear and hallucinations of time and space into the
infinite love and joy of God and Guru.” Yogi Bhajan 07/21/1981

"If you think you are poor, you are poor because you do not communicate with your
soul, the source of prosperity, the source of reality. If you think you are desperate, you
are desperate because you have no sadhana. Desperation, depression, and a feeling of
destitution comes only to those who have no discipline or sadhana. Only a house, which
is not cleaned looks dirty and the mind which is not cleaned stinks. Sadhana is the most
selfish act, because it is a self-cleansing. Cleanliness is Godliness. It is good to wear good
clothes, look good, be bright, beautiful. But when you want to be blissful and bountiful, you
have to have a clear mind, a mind through which your soul, your spirit can shine." Yogi Bhajan

ADHERENCE TO SOLSTICE RULES OF CONDUCT
compliments and deepens the spiritual experience.
Rules established by Yogi Bhajan.


Winter Solstice Sadhana Security Team...Here to serve.

The Saint Soldier... the inspiration for Solstice Sadhana Security personnel.

"To stand strong, nobly and with a big smile to keep our camp safe and secure, is most honorable
and commendable service. Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, throughout his sacred daily hymn
Japji Sahib, sings the praises of those who embrace the privilege to serve in defense of truth, honor
and justice ensuring that peace and order prevail on this earth. He further alluded that in the spiritual
warrior realm, those who choose to honor and uphold that consciousness are considered among the
most deeply blessed and fortunate, manifesting one of the highest incarnations. Selfless service is
cherished by those who understand the privilege of serving others." -- S.S. Jot Singh Khalsa

Tenting couples must be married
Drug and alcohol use is prohibited
Once on site, Attendees remain on site
Adherence to the Solstice Sadhana Diet is encouraged
A week long 'Silence Fast' is encouraged
Registered Attendees and invited guests only, are permitted on site
Note: Yogi Bhajan is known as a Saturn Teacher. What is a Saturn Teacher? Click here.

Late Night Arrivals
Please try to arrive at camp before 7 p.m. in order to better facilitate your safety and security. If you arrive after 9:00 p.m. registration will be closed and Security will be taking your name, location of tent or cabin and other information. You will need to check-in or register at on-site registration immediately after breakfast the following morning. Please be aware that arrival after 10 p.m. means you may have to sleep in the Tantric Shelter.

Bring Your Receipt
Remember that you need to print your registration receipt with the bar code on it. This is your event ticket to get in. You may also bring your Registration ID number.

For Vehicles
Upon entrance to the Solstice Sadhana site, the Solstice Security Team will be collecting additional vehicle information. This information is being collected to improve camp security and enable us to offer assistance with any vehicles, should there be a problem (including parking considerations, lights left on etc.).

Horsebacking Riding
There are still openings for Horseback Riding. Sign up online when you register. You can go back into your registration form and add horseback riding.

Organic Solstice Sadhana
Meals are included in the registration fee, and much of the food at Solstice Sadhana is organic. However, we've had overwhelming requests for more organic food at Solstice Sadhana. Since using organic food and ingredients increases food costs by 30 - 40%, please consider a $20 or more donation to support organic food at Solstice Sadhana in lieu of increased registration fees. Thank you for making your contribution to this program and for co-creating the best sustainable practices for 3HO events.

Securing Your Valuables
If you need additional help to secure your valuables, tent locks and money pouches will be available for purchase at the Administration office. See List of things to bring to Solstice. See 3HO Summer Solstice Sadhana. See 3HO Winter Solstice Sadhana.

SPECIAL INVITATION
From Harvinder Singh Khalsa

 

The Solstice Sadhana Security Team is responsible for the physical safety and well-being of the participants and the camp. The primary duties of the Security Team are to staff the camp entrance, welcome attendees, monitor the flow of traffic (both pedestrian and vehicular) into and out of camp, patrol the entire camp, act as an information resource for all attendees, maintain order in the parking areas, and coordinate with other service areas, local law enforcement, and emergency response teams in the event of an emergency. Through the successful completion of our duties we hold the space for a peaceful and joyous camp experience for all.

NOTE: SOLSTICE SADHANA SERVICE EXCHANGE IS NOW AVAILABILE. If you wish to serve as a member of the SOLSTICE SADHANA SECURITY TEAM, contact us here. No previous security experience is necessary. All service exchange members will be trained.

Security Team members are expected to rotate among the different posts. This is the only team service that operates 24 hours, which gives you a great opportunity to complete your exchange hours while no camp activities are taking place. You may be seated at the Front Gate or in the office, or walking around camp patrolling the Bazaar and tenting areas. See Google Map. We are the first people that participants see as they arrive on-site and highly visible in camp while on shift; the priority is to be welcoming, knowledgeable, and firm. You must be able to give direction and hold boundaries regarding requests for information from participants, badge display, parking and other security concerns. Security Team members exercise interpersonal communication skills while implementing and adhering to all Solstice Sadhana policies and Rules of Conduct as established by Yogi Bhajan. To learn more about the Solstice Security Team requirements, visit Interior-Guard.com.

Summer Solstice Sadhana 1974
Silence, i.e., no verbal communication, is observed for 7 days.

"It is pleasant today that we are together. There are weaknesses in us, but so long as we will do three things we'll never fall apart. Remember those three things: Meditate on God in the morning; stay united--unity is strength; and continue celebrating Summer Solstice Sadhana and Winter Solstice Sadhana. These are the two times when the magnetic field on the Earth shifts. You must get together and do nothing but meditate. These two times should be your best holidays. You should never miss them. And you should never deprive yourselves in missing them. Therefore, you must organize your life around them." Yogi Bhajan, December 1973

Yogi Bhajan at Solstice Sadhana


Solstice Sadhana training session

*Japji Sahib is the Song of the Soul by Guru Nanak (1469-1539). Japji is the opening narrative of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, the sacred compositions of the Sikhs. This simple message does not belong to any particular religion, nor any particular historical period. It is a timeless message to be experienced in ecstatic song.

THE SOLSTICE SADHANA DIET
Changes your body chemistry
Established by Yogi Bhajan

The Solstice Sadhana Diet is a simple, nutritious, and cleansing yogic vegetarian diet (much of the diet is vegan). Yogi Bhajan designed this diet to support the Solstice Sadhana experience. The spicy soup for breakfast and spicy mung beans and rice served at dinner are part of his recommendations. Note: A non-spicy version of the soup and dinner dish is available to anyone who cannot tolerate spicy food.

Organic Food Upgrade

Meals are included in the registration fee, and much of the food at Solstice Sadhana is organic. However, we’ve had overwhelming requests for more organic food. If you prefer eating organic, please contribute to the support of organics at Solstice Sadhana.

Bring reusable/washable cups, dishes, utensils, and cloth napkins for your own use at meals. Cups, dishes, and utensils may be purchased on-site.

Menu

Breakfast: A potato, celery, and onion soup is served with bananas and oranges on the side.

Lunch: Quinoa tabouli, hummus, stuffed grape leaves, tortillas (Special note: Because Yogi Bhajan did not design a specific lunch menu, this meal may vary somewhat.)

Dinner: Mung beans and rice with lettuce, steamed beets and carrots, and hot sauce served on the side. A special meal is served for dinner on the night before camp ends. See Recipe.

Solstice Sadhana Soup

   

      
Solstice Sadhana Sauce, and Mung Beans and Rice with Vegetables

Yogi Tea: Yogi Tea with soy milk or cow’s milk (upon request) will be served twice daily: after Sadhana and nightly at the Yogi Tea Café. There are also hot water and alternative Yogi Tea options provided all day long. On White Tantric Yoga days, Golden Milk will be added to the menu. Golden Milk is a traditional recipe for joint health. It is a delicious combination of milk, turmeric, cardamom, and almond oil.

Special Dietary Needs: If you have special dietary concerns, we cannot support them in the kitchen. You may bring dry foods, however please do not bring anything that requires refrigeration. We also suggest you keep any food items in a tight lidded container so animals cannot get into it.

90 days to gain the new habit;
120 days and you are the new habit;
1,000 days and you are Master of it."


"After you achieve (sadhana) you have to keep up."


Things, they are a changing.

SOLSTICE SADHANA SECURITY AND SAFETY
According to Hari Singh Bird

"Sir, what is your priority for this occasion?"
'Yogi Bhajan, "Security, Security, Security!'"

It is a "sacred duty, without fear or anger, to defend the
weak and protect the innocent." GurdwaraSecurity.com

"Don't secure me, secure my environments." Yogi Bhajan

Why do we need secure environments? See The 12 Signs of Kali Yuga.

Latest CPR Technique

GENERAL PROTOCOLS*
FOR SENTRIES AT ALL SECURITY TEAM STATIONS

Security is those actions or systems, which prevent or minimize
the occurrence of adverse events within specific environments.
The most effective security is preventative as well as proactive,
and serves to minimize any risk to life, property or environments.

1. To take charge of this Security Station and all Solstice Sadhana property in view. (See Flow Chart.)

2. To walk my Security Station in an attentive manner, keeping always on the alert and observing everything that takes place within sight or hearing. (See Flow Chart.)

3. To report all violations of orders I am instructed to implement. (See Flow Chart.)

4. To repeat all calls from Sentries more distant from the Security Office than my own.

5. To quit my Security Station only when properly relieved.

6. To receive, obey, and pass on to the Sentry who relieves me, all orders from Officers of the Security Team and any messages from other Sentries.

7. To talk to no one while on my Security Station, except in the line of duty.

8. To give the alarm in case of fire, medical emergency or disorder.

9. To call the Shift Captain, in any case not covered by instructions.

10. To be especially watchful at night, and during the time for confronting, to question all persons on or near my Security Station and to allow no one to pass without proper authority.

11. To act respectfully, and with grace at all times.

12. To act only in ways as to provide Safe and Secure Environments whereby Solstice Sadhana participants may practice the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, and in order that they may be inspired, and empowered to have a Healthy, Happy, Holy Solstice Sadhana experience.

*GENERAL PROTOCOLS for Sentries at all Security Stations are based on the United States Marine Corps General Orders for Military Posts. Ram Dhan Singh Khalsa and Hari Singh Bird Khalsa, former U.S. Marines, compiled the above General Protocols especially for implementation at Winter and Summer Sadhana Solstices.

SPECIAL OPERATING PROTOCOLS (SOPs) are additional Protocols for Sentries at specific Security Stations. These are based on conditions, which are unique to a particular Security Station, local requirements, or changing circumstances. SOPs are policies formulated and disseminated by Solstice Sadhana Management for implementation by the Security Team members. SOPs will be appropriately displayed for access by all Security Team members. In addition to SOPs, Shift Captains may give additional verbal and-or written orders, as necessary.

Psalm of The Sant Sipahi - The Saint Soldier

"Human is a blend of Saint and Soldier (Sant Sipahi); this is a complete person.
If you are not a Soldier your sainthood will be kicked around. If you are only a
Soldier, not a Saint, you will start kicking others around." Yogi Bhajan 8/6/1975

Glossary of Terms

"Mahan" as in MAHAN TANTRIC is a Sanskrit word meaning principle, supreme, great, or high.

"Tantric" as in WHITE TANTRIC, is a Sanskrit word meaning THE PERSON who weaves together, as in weaving together the physical and the spiritual, as in joining together the human and the divine.

"Tantra" as in WHITE TANTRA, is a Sanskrit word meaning THE PRACTICE of weaving together.

"White" as in WHITE TANTRA YOGA, connotes a practice leading to self-mastery, meaning under one's inner control as opposed to "Black Tantra Yoga", i.e., a practice leading to remote or outside control.

"Yoga" as in WHITE TANTRA YOGA, means union.

So, by definition, "The Mahan Tantric" (Yogi Bhajan), is the PERSON who facilitates "White Tantra Yoga", the PRACTICE. See Yogi Bhajan's Profile. See 3HO Solstice Sadhana.
