Raj Khalsa Gurdwara

A home for the Guru inspired by the teachings of the SSS Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogi Ji

The Story of Raj Khalsa Gurdwara The roots of Raj Khalsa Gurdwara were planted approximately 40 years ago in Washington, DC. Yogi Bhajan, also known as Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji, established a community that was based on Sikh and yogic practices. It was his mission to share the teachings of Kundalini Yoga and to help people live healthy, happy, and holy lives. The community attracted mostly young Americans who were spiritual seekers, and who wanted lives of meaning and service. Yogi Bhajan inspired us to live according to the Sikh Rehit. We rose in the Amrit Vela to recite Japji Sahib, to practice yoga and meditation and to chant the Guru’s bani. He introduced us to the Sikh principles of Bana, Bani, Simran and Seva. We began to wear turbans and to dress in noble bana. We studied Gurmukhi, we learned Gurbani Kirtan, and we immersed ourselves in the Sikh way of life…not just as a philosophy, but as a daily practice. Most of us took Sikh vows and participated in an Amrit ceremony to be initiated into the Khalsa. Our community at that time was called Ahimsa Ashram. In 1970 we opened a vegetarian restaurant which we named The Golden Temple Conscious Cookery. Our restaurant was very successful and we served delicious vegetarian food there for about ten years. As our community grew and many of us married and had children, we decided to move from the city, and in 1979 our community moved to Herndon and Great Falls, where we still reside. Our children have been raised as Sikhs and have been given a strong identity of what it means to live in the purity of Khalsa consciousness. From 1978 – 1986 we operated a Khalsa pre-school and we then built a school in Amritsar, India called Miri Piri Academy where most of our children have been educated. Please visit: www.miripiriacademy.org We established a Gurdwara in 1980 at 6 Export Drive in Sterling, where we hold Sunday Gurdwara services. In 1998, as our Sangat membership grew, we increased the size of our space, quadrupling the square footage, and adding a kitchen and Dharma school room. We asked the Siri Singh Sahib at that time for an official name for our Gurdwara, and he named it Raj Khalsa Gurdwara, the royal domain of the Khalsa.

Mission: Provide a Gurdwara where all are welcome, all may serve, and the Shabd Guru is exhalted.

“It is good to say, ‘Hello, how are you? Good morning, my Creator. Thank you very much.’
It is called gratitude. Attitude of gratitude brings you opportunities beyond your concept. And when the prayer becomes the vibration of the soul, mind, and self, we can create a miracle.”
~Yogi Bhajan 12/8/89 (©YB Teachings, LLC)

“You only want to deal with a few things, so you pick and choose. This way you build a character of being limited, because you only want to deal with the limited. No limited thing can be happy, because God is unlimited and the environments are unlimited.”
~Yogi Bhajan 2/13/95 (©YB Teachings, LLC)

“You have to basically understand the concept of cleanliness and it is a western word-cleanliness is a godliness; to keep the body clean, neat, perfect, unharmed is just to protect the temple of God. Those who do not feel themselves to be capable to protect the body, what God realization is expected by them? It's a simple question.”
~Yogi Bhajan 10/21/69 (©YB Teachings, LLC)

“Be relaxed with everyone. People love to talk to you, if you experience relaxation, if you believe relaxation, if you are a relaxed being. All it takes is for you to just talk to somebody and that person will be relaxed right there and then.”
~Yogi Bhajan 10/2/73 (©YB Teachings, LLC)
