The Sadhu celebrates the 50th Anniversary of 3HO: The Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization and in gratitude to my Teacher, Yogi Bhajan, for these mantras that elevate the spirit and uplift all.

The Yogi

This project began as a love offering to my teacher, Yogi Bhajan, in honor of the 50th anniversary of his coming to the West. It emerged as an amalgam: part dedication, part devotion, part description. Including songs inspired by his poetry and prose, mantras that support the identity of Yogi and tools for practitioners and teachers, it became a little bit of everything.


  1. Not Mine

    Yogi Bhajan, in telling the story of how he came to be here and how such a large, international community grew up around him and his teachings, would often sing this simple line, which I’ve included with a variation, an anthem you might say.

    One day the day shall come when all the glory shall be Thine;
    people will say, It is yours, I will deny, Not mine.
    Not mine, all the beauty;
    Not mine, all the grace;
    Not mine, all the kindness;
    Not mine, it is Thine.
    Not mine, all the courage;
    Not mine, the strength to sacrifice;
    Not mine, it is Thine.
  2. Mool Mantra (11 recitations)

    Our root identity, the Mool Mantra, is the seed that inspires us not because it’s outside of us, but rather because it is a description of our true nature as One with the One God. Eleven Recitations is a complete practice of embodiment. Vibrate Your True Self!

    Ek Ong Kaar
    Sat Naam
    Karta Purkh
    Nirbhao, Nirvair
    Akaal Moorat
    Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach, Hai Bhee Sach, Naanak Hosee Bhee Sach

    Creator and Creation are One, Truth is its Identity; its frequency. Our Nature is creative, our being is to act, fearlessly and without revenge or enmity. Image of the Timeless One, Never born, Self-Illumined. Grace is the formula. Repeat this Meditation: True in the primordial beginning, True throughout all the worlds, True even now, Naanak declares it shall be True.

  3. Sadhana

    A poem by Yogi Bhajan that I’ve always been drawn to. I use this simple song as an introduction to teaching about daily practice in teacher trainings. The companion album derives its name from these lines, The Sadhu, one who becomes one with God through meditation.

    In sadhana, the Sadhu lives
    In sadhana, the nectar of God’s love reigns down
    In sadhana, come the blessings of simran,
    awareness and divine understanding.
    In sadhana is the meditation of Raj Yoga
    In sadhana see God’s glory
    in Sadhana experience infinity.
    Sadhana is the daily meditation of the Sadhu.
    Oh Yogi! Become One with God.
    Amrit vela sach nao vadeeaaee veechaar.
  4. Munda Santokh (28th Pauree)

    For many of us, our first foray into Shabad Guru is using the paurees of Japji. Eleven recitations is a way to practice and embody the principal found in the sound. This was the first song I ever wrote, after beginning my practice of Kundalini Yoga, and it's all about the projection of a Yogi. Its medicine? Unites you with God. It's taken many years for it to find its way onto an album, but its day has finally come.

    munda santokh saram pat jholee Dhi-aan kee karahi bibhoot.
    khinthaa kaal ku-aaree kaa-i-aa jugat dandaa parteet.
    aa-ee panthee sagal jamaatee man jeetai jag jeet.
    aadays tisai aadays.
    aad aneel anaad anaahat jug jug ayko vays.
    Make contentment your ear-rings, humility your begging bowl and meditation the body ash.
    The thought of death; aspiration of the bride to be; and faith in the Lord be your walking stick.
    Come as a traveller; All are fellow students; conquer your mind, and conquer the world.
    Salutation! My humble salutation to You.
    The Primal One, the Pure Light, without beginning, without end. Throughout time you remain same. 28
  5. Moonlight

    The origin of this song’s chord progression comes from the Oscar-winning movie of the same name. We heard the composer interviewed on the radio, and he talked about this haunting juxtaposition of sounds that became a theme throughout the entire soundtrack. The timing of this shabad coming onto my radar and this story on the radio was kismet; and from that magical moment this song emerged.

    What does it have to do with The Yogi? It wasn't one of his favorite shabads; it wasn't even the shabad I planned to produce for this project; but it speaks of those traditional qualities we associate with yogis. Discipline, renunciation, begging, meditation among others make up the themes. But in the end, it is all a Grace. Sometimes we have to let go of our plan and allow what arises naturally to have its day.

    This Shabad is by Guru Arjan Dev Ji in Raag Maaroo on Pannaa 1018.

    ik oa(n)kaar sathigur prasaadh ||

    One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
    Moonlight, moonlight - in the courtyard of the mind, let the moonlight of we God shine down. ||1||
    Meditation, meditation - sublime is meditation on the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. ||2||
    Renunciation, renunciation - noble is the renunciation of sexual desire, anger and greed. ||3||
    Begging, begging - it is noble to beg for the Lord's Praise from the Guru. ||4||

    He alone is blessed with this way of life, upon whose forehead such destiny is recorded. ||7||
    Says Nanak, everything is sublime and noble, for one who enters the Sanctuary of God. ||8||1||4||
  6. I Never Knew Him (But He Knew Me)

    I wrote this song many years ago for Yogi Bhajan's birthday celebration. It's a song about destiny and devotion and deliverance; all the things I associate with Kundalini Yoga. I thought it belonged on this 50-year tribute album. I hope it inspires you to aspire to know him and be known. The frequency of the teacher never dies; so he is still very much with us. And if you want to be found, he will find you as he found me. Sat Naam.

    I never knew him, but he knew me;
    No, I never knew him, but he knew me,
    and now I have the chance to be free.
    He said, God and me, me and God are One
    he said, If you can’t see God in All, You can’t see God at all
    and he said, Peace to all, Life to all, Love to all.
    Sat Naam.
    He saw me, when I couldn’t see myself, and he brought me back to me.
    He found me, when I was lost like never before,
    and he brought me to the door of my divinity,
    now I can see infinity.
  7. Har Har Har Har Gobinday (11 minutes)

    Yogi Bhajan wanted us all to be prosperous as householder-yogis; not so that we would be rich, but that we would always have enough to share and never be tempted to change the teachings in order to increase our student base. This is one of the mantras he gave to increase our prosperity. It’s used in lots of meditations. Chant it in any way, throughout your day, and Radiate the infinite identity of the Great Giver that is You!

    Har Har Har Har Gobinday
    Har Har Har Har Mukanday
    Har Har Har Har Udaaray
    Har Har Har Har Apaaray
    Har Har Har Har Hariang
    Har Har Har Har Kariang
    Har Har Har Har Nirnaamay
    Har Har Har Har Akaamay
  8. Aap Sahaee Hoaa (11 minutes)

    In addition to prosperity, this mantra provides protection and victory. Two of my favorite meditations use this particular mantra, Meditation to Command the Five Tattvas; and a simple mudra at the heart center, right hand over left, as you chant aloud for prosperity; these among many other meditations use this mantra.

    Aap Sahaee Hoaa
    Sachay Daa Sachaa Doaa
    Har Har Har
    The Divine has become my protector, my healer, and my guide.
    The Truest of the True has taken care of us,
    God, God, God
  9. Long Time Sun

    The final song on the album is the simple blessing song that Yogi Bhajan wanted us to use to close every Kundalini Yoga class; 90 seconds and you're on your way. All love surround you, Sat Naam.

    May the Long Time Sun shine upon you
    All love surround you
    And the pure light within you
    Guide your way on
    Sat Naam.

Across the World Ocean


  1. The Water Is Wide

    A variation on a traditional Scottish folk song.

  2. Namo Namo Namo Namo

    By taking even one step toward the Guru, with humility and devotion, the Guru takes a million steps toward you.

    Bhai Gurdaas Ji
  3. Naaraa-in

    Composed by Guru Arjan Dev Ji. Naraa-in is one of the many different names for the Divine. It relates to the quality of water. As a plant needs water for its flowers to blossom, in the same way chanting Naraa-in nurtures the Divine Identity within you so that your soul can bloom into its full beauty and grace. Narayan is the quality that restores. It allows life to become fresh, lush and green again. It's a beautiful practice for new beginnings. (from Spirit Voyage’s Mantrapedia)

  4. Har Har Naam Nidhaan Hai

    The name of the Lord, Har Har, is the greatest treasure. . . . Chanting the name of the Lord, all poverty and pain depart.

    Guru Ram Das ji
  5. Moo Laalan Sio Preet Banee

    Builds unwavering devotion in relationships.

    Breaking it is not broken, letting go it is not let go. Such are the bonds I am fastened with.

    Guru Arjan Dev Ji
  6. Kusam Basant

    Swaiyaas in Praise of Guru Amar Das. Works on prosperity and the Positive Mind; great practice for the Spring.

  7. Kundalini Surjhee

    Swaiyaas in Praise of Guru Ram Das ji.

    Siri Guru Sahib Sabh Oopar, the crown of Raj Yog was given to Guru Ram Das. With this shabad, it has been said that one, in whose fortune it is not so written, even he can experience the chardi kala, the rising of the Kundalini. If you shall sing it, it shall penetrate through all the chakras, including the sahasrara, and resettle to immaculately purify that person no matter what their destiny is.

    Yogi Bhajan
  8. Chattr Chakkr Vartee

    Composed by Guru Gobind Singh

    These final four lines of Jaap Sahib bring the universe inside and the inside outside. The mantra for the heart center, it gives direct energy to it. When you are sinking, if you know this mantra and can sing it, you can totally recuperate yourself.

    Yogi Bhajan, July 12, 2001
  9. Jai Te Gang

    Composed by Guru Gobind Singh

    This is a Mangala Charan of Bhagvati, the Goddess of Power, which we normally associate with a sword. It can temper a person and give them courage, grit and self-esteem that nothing on the planet, no matter how negative, shall affect. This is the only shabad which is a complete mantra.

The Guru Within

About the Art

When I was meditating on The Guru Within and waiting for inspiration, the Luna Moth came into my mind's eye, and then an actual moth landed next to me... in my room, at my altar. The Luna Moth is a nocturnal creature guided by its internal compass and the light in the dark. Luna Moths are rare - not found too often - they are precious. Narinder Kaur Bazen, Artist

    When I am brave, may you protect me

    As Thou keepest me so do I live

    In my strength may you be my kindness

    And when I am weak, may you be my strength

Thanks and Praise

Praises go to my mother, Maxine Huddleston, for teaching me what personal dignity and self-worth look like, even though it took me 40 years to get it! Thanks to my mother-in-law, Cricket Luellen, who, the very first time I met her, encouraged me to stand up for myself; I'll never forget that. Many thanks for her generous gift which helped me manifest this collection. Thanks to Sangeet Kaur Khalsa for her mentorship and guidance in helping me to pronounce these sophisticated sounds as accurately as possible. All mistakes are my own.

Thanks and praise to Jon Gagan for his continued collaboration with me; most of the magic on this album is due to his meticulous and infinitely creative ear. And major props to JQ Whitcomb for the amazing brass arrangements. Thanks so much!

Ditta at PranaProjects created another beautiful cover; thank you for your friendship. And to all the amazing musicians who showed up for this project – thank you! I couldn't do this without your skill, innovation and expertise: Jon Gagan on bass, electric guitar, keyboards and Rhodes, Chris Ishee on piano, Andres Cantisani on acoustic and electric guitar, Har Dev on guitar, Michael Chavez on drums, Robbie Rothschild on udu, djembe and percussion, JQ Whitcomb on trumpet, Ben Finberg on trombone, Sat Purkh on vocals and harmonium and Abhai Raj on vocals.

And finally, thanks to my husband, Abhai Raj Singh, whose devotion to The Naam is unwavering and whose support I have come to depend on more and more each day. Thank you for your kindness and your embodiment of the Divine Masculine. These songs are as much yours as mine. Today and always, I am yours, Sat Purkh.

God is one, the path is one, the light is one, your direction is one, you are one.

Yogi Bhajan, March 8, 1983

One: Love, Life, Light celebrates the oneness of God and all of creation. This album is a unique constellation of contemporary songwriting with ancient sounds from multiple traditions. The sounds express that same eclectic collection of traditions: from the ancient sounds of Allah Allah to the contemporary Jazz sounds of One to the Brasilian beats of Ang Sang Wahe Guru to the rock n' roll traditions found in God and Me and Liberation Song. Everything is here and everything is One.


Liberation Song (7:10)
This is my liberation song
Sa Ta Na Ma Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hang
If you want to be free, open your eyes
Open your heart, Open your hands
Open your mind, raise your voice
and sing with me
Lift your arms to the sky
Even if you don't know why
Kiss the breath and greet the stars
For they made you what you are
If you want to be free come with me
Take my hand and we'll cross the sea
To a world beyond our dreams
Come with me
Love a stranger as though they're a friend
Take your enemy by the hand
We can create the world we seek
Just Chant the name and let it be
If you want to be free you've got to see
The world as it is, not as you'd have it be
There is no good, there is no bad
Only straight ahead
Kiss your lover on the lips
Hold a child in your fingertips
Open your arms to the wind
Run downhill and then begin again
One by U2 (4:10)

This song is here at the request of my beloved, Abhai Raj Singh. It is the cry of the devotee who, having been betrayed by his faith, still finds a reason to be one with love and with each other.

Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same
Will it make it easier on you
Now you got someone to blame
You say
One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
It's one love
We get to share it
It leaves you baby
If you don't care for it
Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it's too late
To drag the past out
Into the light
We're one
But we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
Have you come here for forgiveness
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head
Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
We hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt
One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
One life
But we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
Hamee Ham Braham Ham (11:20)

This is a meditation for use in Kundalini Yoga classes. We are all God – even though we sometimes forget.

We are We, We are God.
Raam Naam (7:11)

As a Sikh of the Guru, we all pray to receive the name or have a sight of the beloved. This song is "the name" as I received it.

Raam Naam Simaro Sachee Hai
Remember the Name of God and the Realm of Truth is Here
Raam Raam Raam Raam Raam Raam
Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram
Allah Allah (6:23)

This song was inspired by a woman in Minneapolis, MN, dressed in traditional Somali clothing, who, after a great storm, looked up into the sky and sang, "Allah, Allah" just as the sun was breaking through the clouds.

There is One God, Truth Is Her Name
Oh Great Spirit
Om Namah Shivaya
Ek Ong Kaar Sat Naam Siri Wahe Guru
Wahe Guru
Sat Naam
God and Me, Me and God, Are One (7:05)
There is no separation
This is liberation
Live as though you're going to die today
Ek Ong Kaar Sat Nam Siri Wahe Guru
Ang Sang Wahe Guru (7:18)

Every album needs a fun dance tune!

I am the god dancing
I am the god singing
I am the god breathing
I am the god being
May every cell of my body vibrate with the Naam
And may I dance in ecstasy with my Lord
Ang Sang Wahe Guru
Ek Ong Kaar Sat Gur Prasaad/All Things Come from God (6:59)

I have paired this traditional gatkaa mantra with this English quote from Yogiji because I believe they each express the balance of life and that we can turn things around simply through our own perspective and attitude.

Love & Other Miracles

Love & Other Miracles is a devotional album dedicated to love – from The Divine and for The Divine – the infinite source of creativity.

This album began with a message,

I'm sending your husband

and nothing has been the same since. When we met, our watchword quickly became, Keep Falling, and we continue to fall more in love with each other every day. My prayer began years ago, chanting Baba Siri Chand's Aad Sach Jugaad Sach Hai Bhai Sach Naanak Hosee Bhai Sach every Friday evening from two a.m. until the wee hours of the morning; and was answered with the hukam, Aas Piaasee Pir Kao Lorhee, the longing was fulfilled.

The first love letter I received from my beloved was an ode to the simple things, like Milk to My Cheerios and peanut butter to my jelly. And it's a testament to our relationship that we both revel in the little things as well as the big. I became his Sita and he my Ram; A Song of Love became our theme. And of course the entire story is a living miracle, which we acknowledge daily and pay homage to with 31 minutes of Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur.

Queen Be

From the soaring French Horns and battle drums in Ajai Alai to the quiet lullaby that is Maha Goddess Mantra , and from the sweeping sounds of the bagpipe in Mangala Saaj Bha-i-aa to the Afro Pop beat in Say Saraswati, Queen Be combines the musical traditions from as far as West Africa to the Scottish Highlands to contemporary American Jazz. Queen Be celebrates the Goddess within all of us; may she serve you as you continue to grow and serve your own identity.

Every track on Queen Be takes you on a journey around the world and back again. Influenced by music from many traditions, I wanted this album to reflect the diversity of our global community of Kundalini Yoga practitioners and teachers.

As a Kundalini Yogi, I've wanted to record some of these mantras for years, mainly because I wanted a sound that matched my own practice. I wanted an Ajai Alai that would energize me, that would match the courage and strength that I experience from Guru Gobind Singh. With a strong 6–beat rhythm, the track opens lyrically and then carries you away on the drums of war. Meditate or practice gatkaa with this track and awaken the spiritual warrior within!

The kora and calabash on Say Saraswati, along with the Afro Pop beat of the bass, sweep you away to the shores of Mother Africa. This has long been one of my favorite mantras – and with this version, we celebrate, together, the sweetness and the simplicity of the steady, primal beat of a woman's heart.

Jai Ma! (Adi Shakti) is a celebration of the Ma from four different traditions, culminating in our own Kundalini Bhakti Mantra: Adi Shakti. Remastered for release on this album, we've added cello to support the sound throughout, as well as new vocals to celebrate the creativity and healing of the sacred mother, which is found in the simplicity of the human voice.

Nectar of the Name

Rich, silky and undeniably expansive, you will eagerly accompany me on this eclectic journey through styles, languages and religious traditions on Nectar of the Name. I blend Gurmukhi songs with beautiful English poetry. On Nectar of the Name, there is a simple and stunning blend of instrumentation on soul–stirring vocals.

My Gurumukhi songs blend traditional melodies and instrumentation with Western compositions and rhythms. Beautiful sitar, tar, keyboards, guitar, trumpet, flute, piano, fiddle, tabla, bongos, and frame drum work together to a unique musical style to life.

I've found peace with the spiritual tradition of the Sikhs and the music gives my voice a place for it, and you can also hear the soulful church influences of my childhood in some of the English vocals, including the opening track Aisa Nam and The One I Love – a track from a song by Gina Sala based on a line from Hafez, the well–known Sufi poet that could as easily be a country Christian soundtrack.

The title track, Nectar of the Name, is an amazing choral experiment in calling out the names of God from all faiths. An almost purely vocal track, the layers of vocals layer upon each other slowly in waves, intimately weaving together, and presenting the interconnectedness of all faiths as they slowly merge into a single, beautiful sound.

The grand finale of the album, Guru Dev, is a high-energy Latin-flavored chant with incredible Spanish flute and trumpet accompanied by a multitude of drums from around the world that will have you exalting in the joy of ecstatic chant.

Beautiful Day

Beautiful Day is meant to be just that – the start of a beautiful day for you and everyone you touch. I wamt to take you on a journey toward the Self and the soul. Each step – each song – bringing you closer and closer to your highest identity – Sat Nam.

Morning Call awakens the Kundalini and provides the root of your identity and practice throughout the day.

Wah Yantee is a dance of the vocal and cello counterparts, lifting you higher and higher with each repetition.

Mul Mantra is an homage my childhood and the roots of her experience in sound; three part harmonies merge in a tight, cohesive sound.

Sat Siri is where the soul begins to soar; the vocals taking you higher and higher.

Rakhe Rakhanhaar brings in the flute, as a single voice sails above the three-part cello harmonies, a rich tapestry of sound.

Wahe Guru Wahe Jio begins with a single line and swells toward a rich sound with multiple voices and a rich staccato cello line to sustain the energy throughout.

Finally, Guru Guru Wahe Guru feels like a walk through the forest; the minor chords mingle with rich vocals and sweet harmonies of flute, cello, guitar and Middle Eastern flat drum, culminating in a sound that will carry you throughout the day.
