Quotes on sadhana by Yogi Bhajan

Possibly everything Yogi Bhajan ever shared around Morning Sadhana - and why he emphasized our need to do it, almost everytime we sat with him!



‘Sadhana is the cornerstone of a spiritual practice. In this book, SS Jot Singh Khalsa gives a full explanation of Sadhana and shares the wisdom he has gained from decades of experience. He addresses the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of starting and maintaining a Sadhana. It truly is a wonderful guidebook for anyone committing to work on themselves by doing a Sadhana.’

Sardarni Guru Amrit Kaur Khalsa - Siri Sikhdar Sahiba of Sikh Dharma International - Chief minister - (the one Yogi Bhajan left in charge). 

‘If you have heard about daily sadhana and want to know more about it; if you are already doing sadhana and are in need of some inspiration; if your sadhana has failed and you need some motivation to get started again or if you want to learn from a sadhana master who learned from his master, then this is the book for you. “The Essential Element” is a marvelous compilation of personal experience and techniques for the essential element of every spiritual life, morning sadhana. I highly recommend it’.

Mukhia Singh Sahib Guruka Singh Khalsa - CIO of SikhNet (chief inspiration officer) and former CEO.


Jot Singh Khalsa grew up on the northeast coast, USA. He studied art, silver, gold and metalsmithing at the State University of New York at New Paltz for six years beginning in 1972, where he also began practicing Kundalini Yoga and meditation. Since that time he has dedicated his life to learning (and trying to have some fun at the same time!) through study, a steady morning sadhana practice and service to others.

Yogi Bhajan wrote him a letter ca. 1978, encouraging him to “use his artistic gifts to create things that uplift and inspire people.” With his teams he has worked to do that ever since.

‘Sadhana, before, during and after, is a whole meditation. It can literally turn your life upside down, save your soul and awaken your brightness. Jot Singh has dedicated his heart and mind to pull together the experience of his peers and the wisdom of Yogi Bhajan. The result is a beautiful small and inspiring guide on getting your life together and keeping it together through sadhana. For the new Student of Kundalini Yoga it is a great guide. For all Kundalini Yoga teachers it gives a trustworthy guide to aligning your local community with the Global community’.

Singh Sahib Shiv Charan Singh - Founder of the Karam Kriya School

"Sadhana is there to merge. When you do Sadhana, you do it for yourself so you can hold this experience throughout the day. It is this process which is required to do every day. This book gives inspiration for keeping up this basic practice."

Singh Sahib Gurudev Singh Khalsa - chief teacher and trainer of Yogi Bhajan's Sat Nam Rasayan methodology of healing.

"It is your birthright to be happy and happiness only comes to a disciple with a discipline. Those who do not seek discipline can never be happy." 

– Yogi Bhajan, 03/27/79
