             Sat Nam, Everybody!                
Welcome to HariSinghBird.com

My name is Hari Singh Bird.

Mission Statement
To serve is to succeed.

PERSPECTIVE POINTS TO PONDER

"The mere act of teaching implies that one
wishes the world well." -- Roger Roseblatt

“The job of a spiritual teacher is to poke,
provoke, confront and elevate." -- Yogi Bhajan

"Life is the only gift of God within you ... be grateful." -- Yogi Bhajan

"Think about it. You grew your magnificent brain, perhaps the most
complicated thing in the world. And you grew it without even thinking
about it. A supremely intelligent Life Force of unknown origin created
and sustains this miracle of life. It's what we refer to as God." -- Hari Singh

"Underneath the superficial self, which pays attention to this and that, there
is another self more really us than I. And the more you become aware of
the Unknown Self -- if you become aware of it -- the more you realize that it is
inseparably connected with everything else that is. You are a function of this total
galaxy, bounded by the Milky Way, and this galaxy is a function of all other galaxies.
You are that vast thing that you see far, far off with great telescopes. You look and
look, and one day you are going to wake up and say, "Why, that's me!" And in
knowing that, you know that you never die. You are the eternal thing that comes
and goes, that appears -- now as John Jones, now as Mary Smith, now as
Betty Brown -- and so it goes, forever and ever and ever." -- Alan Watts

"It's incumbent on those who know, to teach those who do not know." -- Hari Singh

The Beginning

The genesis of HariSinghBird.com dates back to the directive from my teacher, Yogi Bhajan, that I tell my story including how I became associated with 3HO, the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization. As I proceeded with this task I began thinking of other teachers with whom I was associated in the early '70s. So in addition to my Web site I designed several more. Thus emerged Web sites like LivtarSingh.com, AwtarSingh.com, KirpalSinghKhalsa.com, RamDasSingh.com, PreetKaurKhalsa.com, RamDhanSingh.com, SatHanumanSingh.com, 3HOLegacyLinks.com, and OneIsTheAnswer.com. Sites like MySikhSense.com and commentaries like why Sikh women don't tie turban also emerged.

Personal Profile

I am a native of the Midwest, which includes a Native American heritage of the Cherokee and Modoc nations according to my father. I am a husband, a father, an optician, a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher, and a Sikh minister and chaplain. See My Ancestry Profile. See Lifetime Achievement Award. See Legacy Documents and Testimonials.

Since 1969 I have been a student of Yogi Bhajan, who is the founder of 3HO, the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization, and the master of Kundalini Yoga. I began teaching Kundalini Yoga in 1970 and directed 3HO activities in the Denver, Colorado region from 1973 to 1984. I am a founding member of ACT, Akal Committee Thirteen, and a retired founding member of SAT, the Security Advisory Team.

My career as an optician began in 1958 following active duty with the U.S. Marine Corps. I maintain active optician licenses in Florida and Arizona. I am certified by the American Board of Opticianry (ABO), and National Contact Lens Examiners (NCLE). I am a passionate advocate of (a) the resurgence of opticians as genuine Health Care Providers, i.e., highly skilled Eye Wear Professionals, as opposed to today's eyeglass dispensers, most of whom are trained only as merchants or online clerks, (b) the resurgence of the three dimensional dispensing of prescription eyewear, and (c) most importantly, the conscientious Hands on the Patient practical training of aspiring opticians in the design and delivery of handcrafted, form-fitting eyewear. I am currently a consultant with Opticians For Change. I conduct Hands-on Frame Fitting Workshops, which are accredited for Continuing Education by ABO and the Florida State Board of Opticians, and sponsored by the Professional Opticians of Florida (POF). See OpticalGuidelines.com. See My Letter to Eye Care Professionals.   

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.

Those who shall not learn to obey shall never
be in a position to command. --
Yogi Bhajan

Create dependable children, not dependent children. Give your children
the basic values to face their own tomorrows, not be blinded by yours. Make
them proper personalities, not helpless puppets. Position them for success;
do not paralyze them with the commotion of your emotions. --
Yogi Bhajan

The basic aspect of you as woman is not in your sensuality and in your dramas.
You are not only the givers of life, you are the manufacturers of character. Whatever
character you will give to your children, that shall be their future. -- Yogi Bhajan

Children are born with intrinsic leadership traits that prepare them for life.
These must translate positively into the lives they lead as citizens of the world.
These are: Service, Justice, Courage, Compassion, Decisiveness, Reliability,
Integrity, Initiative, Knowledge, Loyalty, Enthusiasm, Endurance. -- Hari Singh
