Gobinde Singh

I have a big news to share with those who care. In my pursue to master Kundalini Yoga I have undertaken many activities and now have been fully rewarded!
On my birthday I have received the most beautiful gift of my lifetime, I have been given a spiritual name. This is the email that I had received from the Kundalini Yoga Organisation officials:

You have been blessed to live as Gobinde Singh, which means the Lion of God who belongs to the Lord of the universe, who helps everyone, and who walks with grace and courage throughout his life.

Gobinde means the Lord of the Universe, one who serves all. Singh means the Lion of God who walks with grace and courage throughout his life. Singh is a name that Yogi Bhajan gave to all men. He taught that every man has the potential to attain a true state of grace and courage, to be a great lion-warrior for God, and he encouraged each man to manifest that potential.

Using the name Gobinde Singh will expand your consciousness so that you experience yourself as a true servant of all, and so that you support the higher consciousness of yourself and everyone you serve.

The power of a Spiritual Name is that the more people speak your name, the more it permeates into your being…and the more you will experience its power to manifest in your life. The power of that 'Naadh' can have an effect on you at the cellular level. The vibration of the word actually vibrates your cells, and restructures them to come into harmony with your spiritual names meaning, which reflects your destiny.

You are the pure love of God. Create a connection with it and share it wherever you go.

May Guru Ram Das bless you and guide you, now and forever. In the Name of the Cosmos which prevails through everyBODY, and the Holy Nam which holds the world.

Many blessings,

Yoga Festival, Fondjouan - 2008

Kundalini Yoga and White Tantra festival was held this year on 22-28 June in a beautiful "Domaine de Fondjouan" in France and the theme was "Energy and Vitality"
Yogi Bhajan, the Master of both, tantra and yoga, taught that a human being consist of ten "bodies". Beyond our familiar physical body, there are other, more etheric bodies that deal with our feelings, mind, karma, projection and protection. These bodies go throuh many processes and transformations, and each one offers us a potential for growth. For ten years, each Yoga Festival focuses on one of the different bodies. This year we worked on the eighth subtle body, the pranic body. Yogi Bhajan says about this: "You are a bunch of molecules living by the pranic body. You are nothing more, nothing less. Human existence is a combination of the pranic body and the energy of the psyche in proportion. This concept is very difficult. I don't want to be "I" I don't want to be "we" I want to be "just as it is".
The love of existence, of our lives, and of our breathing will be in need of the flow of the psyche in us; therefore, we can be a real combination of self within the self. And the sensory system that will develop automatically out of us will be our archangel protecting us and glorifying us.
Those who hustle and hassle and move and want will suffer. They will not get what they want. Now the time has come that we will have a meditative mind to wait and see what come to us" (Yogi Bhajan)
