The Jathedar Sahib was accompanied by the Head Granthi of Bangla Sahib Gurdwara, Giani Ranjit Singh and his wife Sardarni Sukhvinder Kaur. Yogi Bachan was an inspirational leader who had a profound effect on humanity and inspired hundreds of thousands of people to live a healthy, happy and holy life. During his over 30 years of traveling and teaching around the world, he dedicated his life to uplifting humanity through the teachings of Kundalini Yoga and the sacred teachings of Sikh Dharma.
