BBC Interview with Yogi Bhajan in Anandpur Sahib 1999

Here is an interview with Siri Singh Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa (aka: Yogi Bhajan) done by the BBC news service during the 300th anniversary Vaisakhi celebrations in Anandpur Sahib, India (April 19th 1999). The interviewer asks all kinds of questions relating to him coming to America and why many people became Sikhs.

During this time a large group of Sikhs (my family included) came along together on a “yatra” to Anandpur Sahib. Our group had people from all over the world and had quite an experience.

You can browse through the web journal that I put together back in 1999 for the Baisakhi celebrations in Anandpur Sahib. There are lots of interesting pictures, audio clips, videos and stories of our “Yatra” to meet with the Guru in Anandpur on Baisakhi.

    Thanks for an interesting post.

    I did hope and pray for a change. For a while I was mistaken – I got the impression we were making a new beginning and perhaps taking a road less-travelled.

    Do we inherit the planet from our parents or borrow it from our children? Regardless of how we look at it – the fact remains that this is the only planet (reality) that we know of.

    It’s a great interview. All of the Siri Singh Sahib’s lectures and teachings inspire me so much. I felt a lot of emotion when he said ‘what we’re doing here is the same thing that was done 300 years ago.’
    Sat Naam, Siri WaheGuru!

  3. Good interveiw. I was in a discussion with my brother yesterday and he was trying to get to the root of Sikhi and he said I explained it and it sounded too simple. I said it is very simple what the root of Sikhi is and complication just confuses everything. He is a Mormon elder meaning he has gone on a mission for two years{the guys riding bikes with white shirts and name tags} They are supposed to be the strongest force in conversion to their faith so when they make things sound complicated people think they are smart and uphigh and that the person should try to know what he knows. Ill post this conversation on my blog but I told him I should burn a cd with YogiJis lecture and have him listen since YogiJis lecture dont neccasarily pertain only to Sikhi but to any faith. I will put this quick interview on that cd since it explains alot in so little amount of time.
    Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki fateh!
