A Brief Personal History
Sat Nam. I am a native of the Midwest. I am blessed with Native American heritage by way of my father and the Cherokee and Modoc nations. I am a certified kundalini yoga teacher, Sikh minister and chaplain. Since 1969 I've been a student of Yogi Bhajan, who is the founder of 3HO, the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization and the master of kundalini yoga. My career as an Optician began following active duty with the U.S. Marine Corps in 1958. I hold current Optician licenses in Florida and Arizona. I am certified by the American Board of Opticianry, and National Contact Lens Examiners. I am currently an ophthalmic dispenser training consultant. I am a passionate advocate of a) resurgence of the Optician as a skilled health care provider as opposed to those dispensers today who are trained merely as eyeglass merchants; b) resurgence of the unbiased full discovery and disclosure life-style interview and design of prescription eyewear; c) conscientious delivery of prescription eyewear; and d) practical hands-on-the-patient training for aspiring Opticians in the art and craft of custom designed lenses and handcrafted, form-fitted prescription eyewear.

A Special Note
As founder of OpticalGuidelines.com and OpticalCourse.com, I am interested in sharing my experience in the dispensing of prescription eyewear. If you are a practitioner who recognizes the decline in the application of dispensing skills and you wish to incorporate more hands-on-the-patient dispensing into your practice, or you need guidance in order to improve personal skills and profitability, please visit these sites, OpticianryToday.com and OpticalWorkshops.com for more details, then contact me here.

Open Letter To The First Teachers
Those who shall not learn to obey shall never
children, not dependent children. Give your children
The basic aspect of you as woman is not in your sensuality and in your dramas.
Children are born with intrinsic leadership traits that prepare them for life.
OUR YOUTH DESERVE LEADERSHIP TRAINING
Sat Nam, Khalsa ji! I am a passionate proponent of a more equitable balance between our collective Saint-Soldier mind set as Sant Sipahi. In this context I strongly urge Khalsa parents, especially our women, the first teachers of our children, to consider the following points.
.) I urge you to consider enrolling our children at the New Mexico Military Institute, located in Roswell, New Mexico. My kids graduated high school with honors at NMMI in the early '80s, the first children of Sikh Dharma to attend a military school in America. The Siri Singh Sahib expressed pleasure upon observing cadet training when he visited NMMI in 1983. He advised us then that he would have enrolled his own children at NMMI if he had known of its existence. Another group of children who attended school in India later attended NMMI in the early '90s.
New Mexico Military Institute offers an outstanding two year college option for your sons and daughters after they complete their time at Miri Piri Academy. For those families for which MPA is not an option, NMMI has an excellent four year high school college prep program in addition to their two year college program. New Mexico Military Institute has been ranked No. 5 on a list of the nation’s top 50 community colleges by an independent organization, i.e., TheBestSchools.org, which has described the Roswell, New Mexico school as the “only state-supported, coeducational, military boarding school in the United States.” The school offers college prep, a four-year high school and a two-year junior college. See NMMI Strategic Measures Statistics.
Each of the former Sikhi students/graduates of NMMI provide a testament to the advantages of attending NMMI, which include a rigorous and challenging lifestyle, camaraderie and fellowship, and outstanding leadership training especially, along with NMMI's excellent scholastic program. This experience prepared them for additional university training, and exciting careers all over the world. NMMI is the only American prep school I know that has a history of accommodating the Sikhi lifestyle, i.e., sadhana, kesh, turban, sipahi training, and vegetarian diet. And it is an excellent environment for Sikhi youth to learn leadership and soldiering skills for which the Siri Singh Sahib was a passionate proponent.
The NMMI program offers MPA students and other Sikh youth
a unique and reasonably cost-effective opportunity to transition
from the Indian program into the American experience as a unit, and the obvious advantage of continued
bonding with their peers. See NMMI

.) I urge you to reflect on the Siri Singh Sahib's words, "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."
Again, our youth deserve leadership training going forward. I know of no readily available source of formal leadership training available to our Sikh youth other than the New Mexico Military Institute.
