Young people have traditionally been the loudest voice against the abuse of the resources of our earth. Many are terrified of what the future holds as the specter of the climate crisis continues to threaten life as we know it. This reality weighs heavy on the coming generations.
The youth of the world have organized the Global Climate Strike from September 20 – 27. On the 20th, millions of people of all ages will walk out of their classes, jobs, and homes around the world as part of a non-violent action to draw attention to protecting the resources of the earth for future generations.
The Yogi Bhajan legacy organizations of 3HO Foundation International, Sikh Dharma International, Kundalini Research Institute, and SikhNet have joined in their support of the Global Climate Strike, and will participate in events in New Mexico, Los Angeles, and other cities where our people live and work.
To support the efforts of our youth and our sangat, we are joining them in a 40-day meditation for the wellbeing of our planet. A free download of the mantra by Sat Purkh Kaur can be found here. It has been named the “Gaia Shabad”, and it is a beautiful prayer by the great Guru Amar Das Ji.
Yogi Bhajan was a committed supporter of protecting the environment. He said in 1991, “I hope and pray that you will be conscious and protect the Earth, the Mother Earth, and that you will teach your children certain do’s and don’ts to save tomorrow.”
Our house is on fire – let’s act like it.
