Sat Nam Dear Family,
I’m in my house in Espanola, enjoying the holiday season. It was usually at this time of the year when I would travel to India with the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan. I was privileged to travel the world several times over with him, but going to India was always a highlight. It was always a great blessing and an unpredictable experience.
I must admit, the most fun I had was when we would meet a snobby person in a high position who thought more of themselves than they should. It was very entertaining when Yogi Bhajan would introduce me to them as “Hari Jiwan Singh Khalsa, The Prince of Utah.” I would consent by gently nodding. The shock on their faces was always priceless. They would immediately transform, melting away their arrogance and showing the humility and manners of a gentleman.
That was Yogi Bhajan. He always had a unique way to elevate a situation or person on the spot. And, I might add, it was always fun to participate as “The Prince.”
