Ok… it’s like 1AM and it’s been a long day, so I’ll be somewhat brief. We have been having Khalsa Council meetings all week and this afternoon we had a special ceremony to honor the memory of Yogi Bhajan. The city of Espanola and state of New Mexico have dedicated the highway which passes in front of the home of Yogi Bhajan after him. This is a great honor and recognition for all his selfless service to the world. I don’t know of any other highways in the USA which are named after a Sikh.
The New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and other guests spoke at the dedication event. Many of the New Mexico political figures have been long time friends of Yogi Bhajan (20+ years) and have great respect for him and the things that he accomplished in his lifetime.
One of the things that was cool was that originally the dedication was going to be at a different location outside, but a very unusual thing happened. IT RAINED…AND RAINED…AND RAINED. Normally when it rains you are lucky to get 2 minutes of rain. We haven’t had pretty much any rain for over 6 months and the land has been soo dry. It was as if it rained for this very occasion.
Twice a year we hold “Khalsa Council” meetings which is a leadership group of Sikhs from all over the world that come to Espanola to vision for the future. We had been having these meetings and as a result of the rain the Highway memorial dedication could not be held outside. So, instead… everyone came to the Khalsa Council meetings. So the Governor and all the other New Mexico political figures came to “meet” the Khalsa Council. Cool eh?
