In the autumn of 1999, during one of Yogi Bhajan’s meditation classes in Espanola, he requested that this song be written.   He specifically requested that it include the line “Don’t cry for me children of Sikh Dharma” and that it be written in the past tense as if he had already…

Kindness – Lovely Quote!

Kindness – Lovely Quote!

The only thing you can do in your life to win the world is to be a kind speaker and a kind listener-that’s what makes humankind. Why do we talk?  Because we want to express our passion. That’s fine; but when we act out of passion, we are a disaster….
