In 1994, the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan formed the 3HO NGO in service to the United Nations’ work for peace in this world. 3HO supports the goals and work of the United Nations through sharing the technology of living a healthy, happy, and holy lifestyle.
As a United Nations non-governmental organization, 3HO supports International Women’s Day, the International Day of Happiness, International Mother Earth Day, International Yoga Day, the International Day of Peace, and the Stop Violence Against Women campaign.
3H0 offers worldwide meditations and kriyas, celebrations, and yogic resources in support of these events.
International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated the International Day of Happiness as a way to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world. In 2015, the UN launched the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that seek to end poverty, reduce inequality, and protect our planet – three key aspects that lead to well-being and happiness. As a UN NGO, 3HO Foundation International is honored to help spread the word about happiness through Kundalini Yoga.
International Mother Earth Day is celebrated to remind each of us that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance. In order to achieve a balance among the economic, social, and environmental needs of present and future generations, it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth. Yogi Bhajan taught us to live consciously and to take responsibility for ourselves in harmony with all creation. A yogic lifestyle helps mother earth through vegetarianism and energy conservation through cold showers. Kundalini Yoga is the Yoga of Awareness, and 3H0 encourages practitioners to create positive environmental change by staying fully aware of the impacts of our choices on Mother Earth.
3H0 contributes to International Yoga Day by disseminating information about Kundalini Yoga worldwide.
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world in September. The General Assembly has declared this to be a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. 3H0 offers kriyas and meditations to facilitate the experience of inner peace as well as to bring global peace.
3H0 Foundation partners with the United Nations to encourage activism against gender-based violence in the days leading up to the yearly Stop Violence Against Women Campaign. 3H0 emphasizes the power of incorporating Kundalini Yoga into these efforts.
