Album Notes
The Yogi
This project began as a love offering to my teacher, Yogi Bhajan, in honor of the 50th anniversary of his coming to the West. It emerged as an amalgam: part dedication, part devotion, part description. Including songs inspired by his poetry and prose, mantras that support the identity of Yogi and tools for practitioners and teachers, it became a little bit of everything.

Not Mine
Yogi Bhajan, in telling the story of how he came to be here and how such a large, international community grew up around him and his teachings, would often sing this simple line, which I’ve included with a variation, an anthem you might say.

One day the day shall come when all the glory shall be Thine;
people will say, It is yours, I will deny, Not mine.
Not mine, all the beauty;
Not mine, all the grace;
Not mine, all the kindness;
Not mine, it is Thine.
Not mine, all the courage;
Not mine, the strength to sacrifice;
Not mine, it is Thine.

Mool Mantra (11 recitations)
Our root identity, the Mool Mantra, is the seed that inspires us not because it’s outside of us, but rather because it is a description of our true nature as One with the One God. Eleven Recitations is a complete practice of embodiment. Vibrate Your True Self!

Ek Ong Kaar
Sat Naam
Karta Purkh
Nirbhao, Nirvair
Akaal Moorat
Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach, Hai Bhee Sach, Naanak Hosee Bhee Sach

Creator and Creation are One, Truth is its Identity; its frequency. Our Nature is creative, our being is to act, fearlessly and without revenge or enmity. Image of the Timeless One, Never born, Self-Illumined. Grace is the formula. Repeat this Meditation: True in the primordial beginning, True throughout all the worlds, True even now, Naanak declares it shall be True.

A poem by Yogi Bhajan that I’ve always been drawn to. I use this simple song as an introduction to teaching about daily practice in teacher trainings. The companion album derives its name from these lines, The Sadhu, one who becomes one with God through meditation.

In sadhana, the Sadhu lives
In sadhana, the nectar of God’s love reigns down
In sadhana, come the blessings of simran,
awareness and divine understanding.
In sadhana is the meditation of Raj Yoga
In sadhana see God’s glory
in Sadhana experience infinity.
Sadhana is the daily meditation of the Sadhu.
Oh Yogi! Become One with God.

Amrit vela sach nao vadeeaaee veechaar.

Munda Santokh (28th Pauree)
For many of us, our first foray into Shabad Guru is using the paurees of Japji. Eleven recitations is a way to practice and embody the principal found in the sound. This was the first song I ever wrote, after beginning my practice of Kundalini Yoga, and it's all about the projection of a Yogi. Its medicine? Unites you with God. It's taken many years for it to find its way onto an album, but its day has finally come.

munda santokh saram pat jholee Dhi-aan kee karahi bibhoot.
khinthaa kaal ku-aaree kaa-i-aa jugat dandaa parteet.
aa-ee panthee sagal jamaatee man jeetai jag jeet.
aadays tisai aadays.
aad aneel anaad anaahat jug jug ayko vays.

Make contentment your ear-rings, humility your begging bowl and meditation the body ash.
The thought of death; aspiration of the bride to be; and faith in the Lord be your walking stick.
Come as a traveler; All are fellow students; conquer your mind, and conquer the world.
Salutation! My humble salutation to You.
The Primal One, the Pure Light, without beginning, without end. Throughout time you remain same. 28

The origin of this song’s chord progression comes from the Oscar-winning movie of the same name. We heard the composer interviewed on the radio, and he talked about this haunting juxtaposition of sounds that became a theme throughout the entire soundtrack. The timing of this shabad coming onto my radar and this story on the radio was kismet; and from that magical moment this song emerged.

What does it have to do with The Yogi? It wasn't one of his favorite shabads; it wasn't even the shabad I planned to produce for this project; but it speaks of those traditional qualities we associate with yogis. Discipline, renunciation, begging, meditation among others make up the themes. But in the end, it is all a Grace. Sometimes we have to let go of our plan and allow what arises naturally to have its day.

This Shabad is by Guru Arjan Dev Ji in Raag Maaroo on Pannaa 1018

I Never Knew Him but He Knew Me
I wrote this song many years ago for Yogi Bhajan's birthday celebration. It's a song about destiny and devotion and deliverance; all the things I associate with Kundalini Yoga. I thought it belonged on this 50-year tribute album. I hope it inspires you to aspire to know him and be known. The frequency of the teacher never dies; so he is still very much with us. And if you want to be found, he will find you as he found me. Sat Naam

I never knew him, but he knew me;
No, I never knew him, but he knew me,
and now I have the chance to be free.

He said, God and me, me and God are One
he said, If you can’t see God in All, You can’t see God at all
and he said, Peace to all, Life to all, Love to all.
Sat Naam.

He saw me, when I couldn’t see myself, and he brought me back to me.
He found me, when I was lost like never before,
and he brought me to the door of my divinity,
now I can see infinity.

Har Har Har Har Gobinday (11 minutes)
Yogi Bhajan wanted us all to be prosperous as householder-yogis; not so that we would be rich, but that we would always have enough to share and never be tempted to change the teachings in order to increase our student base. This is one of the mantras he gave to increase our prosperity. It’s used in lots of meditations. Chant it in any way, throughout your day, and Radiate the infinite identity of the Great Giver that is You!

Har Har Har Har Gobinday
Har Har Har Har Mukanday
Har Har Har Har Udaaray
Har Har Har Har Apaaray
Har Har Har Har Hariang
Har Har Har Har Kariang
Har Har Har Har Nirnaamay
Har Har Har Har Akaamay

Aap Sahaee Hoaa (11 minutes)
In addition to prosperity, this mantra provides protection and victory. Two of my favorite meditations use this particular mantra, Meditation to Command the Five Tattvas; and a simple mudra at the heart center, right hand over left, as you chant aloud for prosperity; these among many other meditations use this mantra.

Aap Sahaee Hoaa
Sachay Daa Sachaa Doaa
Har Har Har

The Divine has become my protector, my healer, and my guide.
The Truest of the True has taken care of us,
God, God, God

Long Time Sun
The final song on the album is the simple blessing song that Yogi Bhajan wanted us to use to close every Kundalini Yoga class; 90 seconds and you're on your way.
All love surround you, Sat Naam.

May the Long Time Sun shine upon you
All love surround you
And the pure light within you
Guide your way on
Sat Naam.
