Yogi Bhajan's Birthday Celebration

Well, it's been a flury of activities this weekend and I was honored to be a part of it all. Friday night began with the 31 minute meditation followed by a class with Gurucharan
Singh and Snatam Kaur. I was asked to sing along and it was a wonderful evening.

The following evening was the party. Several musicians had been asked to write an original song for the event. My song was well-received and I hope to record it and post it for you here at some p0int in the future. It speaks to all of us who consider ourselves Yogi Bhajan's students and yet never actually met him. And that number will of course be growing over the years. So in the context of his birthday anniversary, I think it worked well and moved a lot of people.

There was dancing and food and music and a good time was had by all. The evening party was followed by the morning sadhana: 2 1/2 hours of Long Ek Ong Kaar, or Morning Call. It was a great vibration to be in, as usual, and the rest of my day floated along that sound current.

I spent the rest of the day in Abiquiu working with my friends Prabhu Jot and Gian Kaur, helping them catch up on things. . . .it was nice to be away, in the country for a while, and catch up with friends. The weekend was topped off by my belated birthday present from Devi Dyal--Tickets to Diana Krall at the Opera House. It was lovely, even with the storm and the rain. We arrived just in time to catch the shuttle to the opera house, we sat down and within minutes the evening began. This beautiful open-air theatremade for a bit of a chilly evening with the storm blowing through, but it was lovely just the same.
