Off to the Jemez Mountains for a Week!

Well I’m off to the “Summer Solstice Camp” and probably won’t be posting any blog entries till June 25th. There are no internet connections in the mountains so… can’t do much about it. I might post some audio blog entries by cell phone. We’ll see.

The Summer Solstice camp has been happening every year since 1969! I have been going ever since I can remember. Actually I met my wife (Arjan Kaur) at the Winter solstice camp which happens in Florida.

Around 1,000 people come to the camp every year from all over the world. Everyone camps out in their own tents out in the open. The day starts with Sadhana at 3:45AM with Japji Sahib, then 45 minutes of Yoga, then and hour of Meditations, followed by Gurdwara. During the day there are a variety of classes and workshops that you can participate in. It’s hard to explain all the happenings because there is so much that goes on during that week. Basically it is a place for Spiritual renewal. Everyone comes there to learn and uplift themselves. I always notice a lot of personal change after the week. We’ll see what happens this year! I’ll be taking lots of pictures and will post them up after, so that you can see some of the happenings.

The 20th Peace Prayer will also be happening today up on the mountain.

See you all in a week!

    Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa, Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh,

    I’m very inspired by your day to day life. It has changed my perspective about what I think about life and the people. How our lives are so influenced by having a negative, positive, or a neutral mind. I started reading Yogi Bhajan’s lectures online and was thinking about taking yoga classes. However, I was disappointed after reading your today’s blog that you’ll be going away for Summer Solstice Sadhna since I’m not aware of annual meditation camps or resources relating. I’m very new to this.

    In future, could you kindly let us know any of upcoming events that might be useful for us so we could become part of an unforgetable experience as well.


  7. Your blog is my daily inspiration. Hope you have a lovely time in the mountains.
