Celebration In Memoriam
August 26, 1929 – October 6, 2004
"If you cannot see God in all, you cannot see God at all."
Memory of Yogi Bhajan
In Celebration of His Passing
MSS Shakti Parwha Kaur Khalsa
Nam. I send this with immeasurable love and prayers to the 3HO/Sikh
Dharma family and wish that there could have been a way to talk
with each of you personally, but because we wanted to communicate
in a timely way, we know that you understand that e-mail is the
And so it is with a great sense of loss that I am writing on behalf
of the staff and family of the Siri Singh Sahib (Yogi Bhajan)
to let you know that he has left his physical body. He joyfully
accepted the will of God and Guru at 9 PM Mountain Standard Time
on the evening of October 6, 2004 in his dome in Espanola, New
Mexico. The cause was complications due to heart failure.
Before leaving, he requested that this be a time of celebrating
his going home. During the traditional Sikh 17 day period of remembrance,
culminating with a memorial service, he has asked that we come
together each day, chant, pray, talk, serve food, and eat together.
The Siri Singh Sahib always taught us, that in times of joy and
sorrow we should come together to be with one another. It is with
Sangat and Pangat that we will find our true comfort and acceptance.
So in his spirit, open your homes and hearts, your Gurdwaras and
yoga centers, and gather with all those who have experienced the
touch of the Master. Let this be a time for prayers and reflection
and a way to take care of our needs for comfort.
Mat mai pichhai ko-ee rovsee so mai mool na bhaa-i-aa.
Mit paijhai mit bigsai jis mit kee paij bhaav-ay.
Let no one weep for me after I am gone. That would not please
me at all. When a friend receives a robe of honor, then his friends
are pleased with his honor. --
Guru Arjan Dev, Siri Guru Granth Sahib, Page 923
The Siri Singh Sahib has guided this transition process and wanted
you to know that his family and all our organizations are secure
and will continue in the way that he has directed. Details of
these arrangements will be forthcoming shortly.
Arrangements for his cremation and Memorial Services are presently
being planned and will be posted at www.sikhnet.com/yogibhajan.

The Web site and telephone message will be updated daily, and
you can leave messages at (505) 367-1661/1662. Please understand
that most likely time will not permit us to return all of your
calls and messages.
We have been blessed for these 35 years to sit at the feet of
The Master. It has always been his prayer that we become 10 times
greater than he. Now is the time to imbibe the qualities that
he so gracefully exhibited and taught us to make our own: dignity,
divinity, grace, commitment, courage, kindness, compassion, tolerance,
wisdom, and understanding. Mostly it was his love that has touched
us all so deeply.
