    The way Yogi Bhajan stood tall as a sikh, and contributed towards creating sikhs, a mere look of whom gives so much of anand, is so admirable and memorable.

    May his soul rest in peace.

    Sevadaar Singh Ji,


    Yogi did standout with his height and turban. He did not convert Sikhs. He used Sikhi as a tool to establish a billion dollar enterprise. True Sikhs have left 3HO and become GURU KEI SIKHS. He was charged with rapes. Two of the cases were settled outside the court with the mediation of Bhai Jeevan Singh Ji and Bhai Manmohan Singh ji.

    Following is the site hosted by Kamalla Rose Kaur which would give you a better picture about Yogi Bhajan.

    Neutral Singh Ji,

    I also noticed the same. I have not visited the site for a long time. It must be busy today due to Yogi's demise. When you do have the chance to log on to the site, you will be able to read all court papers and the various testimonies given.

    Tejwant

    Tejwant Ji, until the link is restored... Can you provide some background about what is 3HO ? Why True Sikhs have left 3HO ? I am always been intrigued by 3HO... Frankly do not know much about their origin and except for that {url not allowed} is controlled by 3HO.

    I am opening a new thread dedicated to discussions on 3HO. Your input would be really helpful.

    Regards
