How to Teach Japji Sahib: Summer Solstice Report
The 90 minute class was attended by long-time Sikh ministers, as well as Kundalini Yoga teachers and students. Those who attended expressed a sincere interest in understanding Guru Naanak’s Japji Sahib and the role of the Shabad Guru in spiritual development.
During the class, Ek Ong Kaar Kaur shared some basic tools to help teachers create the bridge between Kundalini Yoga and the practice of Japji Sahib. While Kundalini Yoga dates back thousands of years, Guru Naanak’s Japji Sahib is less than 500 years old. One of the many questions for Kundalini yoga students is, “Why is Japji Sahib so important to Yogi Bhajan’s teachings?” The class at Summer Solstice took a few steps towards answering that question.
The class at Summer Solstice was well-attended. A video of the class will be available on-line later this year.
During the class, Ek Ong Kaar Kaur also talked about a new program that Sikh Dharma International plans to introduce starting in the fall of 2012. The Japji Sahib Teacher Enhancement Program.
