Yogi Bhajan on Karma Yoga

Sat Nam,

Our hearts go out to each of you at this time of great upheaval and challenge. We're sending you our wishes for health for yourself, all your loved ones, your communities and the world.

In response to the very real public health challenge of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel all our in-person Summer 2020 events: Summer Solstice Sadhana, International Women's Camp, and Khalsa Youth Camp.

We will be providing full refunds and we ask for your patience with the process given the numbers of registrations we need to refund. Cancelling these events will have a large financial impact on our organization.  We also ask that if you would like to support 3HO financially during this challenging time, you can choose to "pay it forward" and your registration fee will be credited towards Winter Solstice 2020, a future 3HO event, or a donation to help 3HO in this time of financial challenge.

You can process your cancellations here.

We look forward to supporting you online with Kundalini Yoga,

The 3HO Foundation Team

Yogi Bhajan spoke about some aspect of Seva/Karma Yoga in almost every class he taught. He encouraged his students to focus on giving rather than getting, to live with an attitude of gratitude for all blessings and all challenges, to act as a forklift and uplift others in need, and to serve humanity with love.  He created the Summer and Winter Solstice Sadhana Celebrations with opportunities for karma yoga as a part of the experience to elevate and uplift all.

Love is seva. It’s offering yourself and helping to increase the vitality, the surroundings of somebody, giving somebody grace. Yogi Bhajan 7/10/95

Seva means doing a service, a service with no return. That is how grace gets multiplied, when you are not seeking any return. Yogi Bhajan 7/20/81

Service is when you totally don't feel like serving; you're tired, you're jet-lagged, you're obnoxious, you're very, very angry; and still you go into the kitchen and you make a good dish and you say, "Are you hungry? I made this for you"--that's called serving. Yogi Bhajan 7/30/81
