Offering Yourself Before the Guru


Yogi Bhajan discusses the practice of conscious bowing to the Guru as a meditation and preparation for your final transition:

“The idea of coming [before the Siri Guru Granth Sahib]—the protocol or the idea or the meditation—it’s a great meditation. To come calmly and quietly, and get your feet washed, quietly, and walk very slowly and humbly and come to Siri Guru Granth very decently and well dressed, well decorated, and offer something, maybe a quarter or a dollar or two dollars or five dollars or hundred dollars, doesn’t matter.  It’s all your heart; it is not a matter of the head.  Whatever you feel and offer before it and then quietly and effectively bow and pray. This all is an act of meditation. It’s an act of realization. Because the highest power before a man is the power of prayer. Offering yourself before the Guru is the highest prayer.”

Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan (Khalsa Women’s Training Camp, July 15, 1981)
