There are a couple of classes I know I definitely want to take, but I just want to have a (printed) schedule to look at and decide when I'm ready to decide.....not a week before hand.
This is very frustrating.

Today Parkash Purab (Janam Diwas) of Sahibzada Baba Ajit Singh Ji.

"Janmiaa poot bhagat govind kaa ||
A son is born to the devotee of the Universal Lord.
Pragattiaa sabh meh likhiaa dhur kaa ||rehaao||
This primal writ of manifest destiny has been revealed to all. ||Pause|| "

Sahibzada Ajit Singh (11 February 1687 - 7 December 1705), the eldest of four sons of Guru Gobind Singh ji, was born to Mata Jito ji (also known as Mata Sundari ji) at Paonta sahib on 11 February 1687. The following year, Guru Gobind Singh ji returned with the family to Anandpur where Ajit Singh was brought up in the approved Sikh style.
He was taught the religious texts, philosophy and history, and had training in the martial arts such as riding, swordsmanship, gatka and archery. He grew up to be a handsome young man, strong, intelligent and a natural leader of people. Soon after the creation of the Khalsa on 30 March 1699, he had his first test of skill. A group of Sikhs (sangat) coming from Pothohar, northwest Punjab, was attacked and looted on the way by the Ranghars of Nuh, a short distance from Anandpur across the River Sutlej.
Guru Gobind Singh ji sent Sahibzada Ajit Singh, barely 12 years of age then, to that village to intervene and defend the sangat. Ajit Singh at the head of 100 Sikhs reached there on 23 May 1699, punished the Ranghars and recovered the looted property. Following this successful mission, a much harder task was entrusted to him the following year when the hill chiefs supported by imperial troops attacked Anandpur. Sahibzada Ajit Singh was made responsible for the defence of Taragarh Fort which became the first target of attack.
This, according to the Bhatt Vahis, happened on 29 August 1700. Ajit Singh, assisted by Bhai Ude Singh, a seasoned soldier, repulsed the attack. He also fought valiantly in the battles of Nirmohgarh in October 1700. On 15 March 1701, a sangat, column of Sikh devotees, coming from Darap area (present Sialkot district) was waylaid by Gujjars and Ranghars. Sahibzada Ajit Singh led a successful expedition against them too.
Once a Brahman came to Guru Gobind Singh’s ji darbar. He complained that some Pathans of Bassi, near Hoshiarpur had taken his newly-wedded wife away by force. Sahibzada Ajit Singh offered to help the Brahman to recover his wife. As instructed by Guru Gobind Singh ji, on 7 March 1703 he took out 100 horsemen to Bassi, near Hoshiarpur. With this band of young brave Sikhs, Baba Ajit Singh fell upon Bassi during the night. He arrested the Pathans responsible for the wicked deed. He recovered the Brahman’s wife. He took the wicked Pathans to Anandpur the following morning. The Brahman’s wife was restored to him. The wicked Pathans were punished, suitably and severely.
In the prolonged siege of Anandpur in 1705, Sahibzada Ajit Singh again displayed his qualities of courage and steadfastness. When, at last, Anandpur was vacated on the night of 5-6 December 1705, he was given command of the rearguard. As the besiegers, violating their solemn promises for a safe conduct to the evacuees, attacked the column, he stoutly engaged them on a hill feature called Shahi Tibbi until relieved by Bhai Ude Singh. Sahibzada Ajit Singh crossed the Sarsa, then in spate, along with his father, his younger brother, Jujhar Singh, and some fifty Sikhs. Further reduced in numbers by casualties at the hands of a pursuing troop from Ropar, the column reached Chamkaur in the evening of 6 December 1705, and took up position in a garhi, a highwalled fortified haveli (house). The attackers, their numbers since swelled by reinforcements from Malerkotia, Sirhind and from among the local Ranghars and Gujjars, soon caught up with them and threw a tight ring around Chamkaur.

An unequal but grim battle commenced with the sunrise on 7 December 1705 in the words of Guru Gobind Singh's Zafamamah, a mere forty defying a hundred thousand (lakh). The besieged, after they had exhausted the meagre stock of ammunition and arrows, made sallies in batches of five each to engage the encircling host with sword and spear. Sahibzada Ajit Singh led one of the sallies and laid down his life fighting in the thick of the battle. He was 18 years old at the time of his supreme sacrifice for his faith. Gurdwara Qatalgarh now marks the spot where he fell, followed by Sahibzada Jujhar Singh, who led the next sally.
An annual fair is held in commemoration of their martyrdoms on the 8th of the Bikrami month of Poh (December/January).

Tomorrow we all Sikhs are going to celebrate the 387th birth anniversary of Sri Guru Har Rai ji , who is remembered for his sensitivity towards the nature and his passion for preserving it.

In the 17th century, Guru Har Rai ji was instrumental in developing Kiratpur Sahib on the banks of tributary of the river Sutlej in Punjab as a town of parks and gardens: he planted flowers and fruit-bearing trees all over the area, as well as medicinal herbs and wildlife sanctuaries for the benefit of the masses making him perhaps the earliest environmentalist in the Indian subcontinent. According to Sikh history this created a salubrious environment, attracting birds and animals to the town and turning it into an idyllic place to live.

The story of love with nature began when Guru Har Rai as a young boy accidentally battered a flower in his garden with his gown. He was deeply hurt at this incident and never plucked any flower or leaf in his whole life instead he became an intense lover and preserver of nature. He began a medicinal herb garden known as called Naulakha Baagh.

History tells of how when Dara Shiko (the son of Shajahan the Emperor of India) was poisoned with tiger’s whiskers by his own brother Aurangzeb, the royal family begged for medicinal herbs from the Guru Har Rai’s medicinal garden. The medicines included cloves and 100 grams of Harar (termininalia chebula; known in Ayurvedic medicine as Aralu and credited with having laxative and stomachic properties). To these ingredients, Guru ji added a pearl called Jagmoti which was to be ground and used as a subsidiary remedy. When his son was healed, the Emperor was naturally very pleased and forgot all his enmity with the Guru, and vowed that he would never again cause him annoyance.

Drawing inspiration from their great Guru’s life; Sikh devotees today have begun celebrating his Gurugaddi diwas as Sikh Environment day. EcoSikh takes pride in initiating this global movement. Sikhs throughout the world celebrate this day on March14 by pledging to plant and protect trees, presenting plants and saplings to their local Gurdwara or to their family and friends, conducting seminars and speeches on a range of subjects including kitchen gardening, cleanliness, organic food, water preservation, recycling and re-use etc.

In a way the Sikhs are stepping forward to protect vulnerable Mother Nature to meet the challenge of the present day, as a tribute to their seventh Guru, Sri Guru Har Rai Ji.

Find Your Tribe at Sat Nam Fest

We just wrapped up Sat Nam Fest Joshua Tree 2017, and our hearts are singing from the heart-opening connections made with our soul family from all over the world as we gathered together in the spirit of Oneness. It was so beautiful to participate in the growth and transformation of every Sat Nam Fest participant during our time together.

I had never been to Joshua Tree before coming to Sat Nam Fest and that was one of the most amazing surprises of this festival. This land is gorgeous and inspirational. The sunrises, the sunsets, the beautiful stars and the unique flora —- all add so much to the experience of being at this special festival.

Be With Sat Santokh and Heal

One seasoned Kundalini Yoga and Meditation teacher, Sat Santokh Singh Khalsa, has subtle understanding of the human subconscious mind. He will be teaching a workshop at Sat Nam Fest called “Healing The Wounds of Life.” This 4-day experience can clear deep wounds from the subconscious mind to help a person blossom into a true sense of self-worth and well-being. This intimate workshop offers a deep hypnotic experience in which everyone present is present for one another. Sat Santokh has a unique ability to navigate the spiral energetic of the subconscious mind to confront wounds that have been buried deep into the fabric of a being. He holds space for words to be said and emotions to emerge that will allow complete release.

The Power of Mantra: Tuning In to Love

The Power of Mantra: Tuning In to Love

The tone of the mantra dissolves the boundaries of my body. I see colors of pinks and yellows radiate out from my heart center. The light expands, encompassing my neighbors, the tent, and the world. As I sing, I feel the heaviness of shame lift from my body. I am weightless, swept up in this current of energy, as though I were floating down a river.

Bound Lotus Kriya: A Personal Journey of Love, Forgiveness & Surrender

Bound Lotus Kriya: A Personal Journey of Love, Forgiveness & Surrender

To practice the Bound Lotus Kriya successfully, Maha Kirn says that a person needs to give up trying to attain the perfect posture. Instead, the practice is about embracing the never ending process and the journey of continuous self-discovery. The greatest lesson I have learned from the Bound Lotus Kriya is to surrender. Surrendering is not giving up; but rather, surrendering is the bravest action I can take. Through the practice of the Bound Lotus Kriya, and by surrendering to the experience, I have tapped into a new-found depth in my being to access the courage I need to let go and bow before the Divine. I have found how to let go and trust in Life.

Bliss – Did You Bring it Home?

Bliss – Did You Bring it Home?

“Bliss – it is a term often used, but many of us do not feel it every day. Bliss is often referred to when talking about another time – past or future – rarely when talking about the present. We felt bliss in a variety of ways at Sat Nam Fest, so it was included in the name of our virtual community – Sat Nam Fest Sangat – Bring Home the Bliss. But how do we make bliss a regular reality in our lives?”
