The Essential Element

By Jot Singh Khalsa

Ideally – early morning sadhana, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, incorporates Japji Sahib (a prayer of attunement with the soul), Kundalini yoga, meditation and Gurdwara (Guru Gate) a meditative, music-based prayer service that Yogi Bhajan referred to as the social part of sadhana.

During approximately four decades of worldwide teaching, Yogi Bhajan consistently referred to daily sadhana as the most important practice once could do to enable a pathway to self-mastery and achieve and maintain success.

In his first book, The Essential Element, Jot Singh shares his experience of practicing daily early morning Kundalini Yoga and meditation (Sadhana) for 45 years. Included are techniques, tips and vegetarian recipes to support you developing a practice, and many quotes by Yogi Bhajan on the subject. The book also offers numerous suggestions to support your efforts building consistency with a practice which will uplift and transform you. (Published in 2014).

Original Light

By Snatam Kaur Khalsa

The Kundalini Yoga tradition speaks of a call to the Divine that awakens “the Original Light of the soul.” Through meditation, prayer, and sacred song, those of all faiths can connect with this illuminating source—Kundalini, the universal energy of awareness and healing that awakens within. With Original Light: The Morning Practice of Kundalini Yoga, kirtan(devotional chant) singer Snatam Kaur takes us into the heart of the path, as taught in the Aquarian Sadhana, its primary guide to daily practice. Readers explore Kundalini Yoga’s key principles, enriched by Snatam Kaur’s stories and insights as a lifelong practitioner. She then teaches its five stages of practice, including preparation, sacred recitations, breathing fundamentals, energizing yoga sets, meditations, morning chants, and more. This invaluable resource offers for the first time Snatam Kaur’s personal instruction—a direct transmission from her teacher and Kundalini Yoga’s founder, Yogi Bhajan—to anyone inspired by yoga or devotional singing. Includes two CDs with guided chants and practices. (Published in 2016).
