Special Note: Yogi Bhajan refers to himself as a Saturn teacher.
"The planet Saturn is known as the Lord of Karma in many texts. Saturn manifests the lessons we need to learn, and forces us to face them. We can choose the easy way or the hard way, but Saturn makes sure we take responsibility for past actions, thoughts and feelings.
Saturn teachers take the same approach. They can give difficult, tedious tasks to teach a lesson and reveal you to yourself. They are taskmasters who seek to confront you with things that you don't want to see. These guides ask us to face our fears and the very things we run away from.
They push us past our emotions, and give us limits for us to push and test. Saturn is the higher vibration of the emotionally reactive Moon, setting boundaries and discipline with our feelings. Saturn teachers aid in breaking down the ego and false identities. Saturn teachers push your buttons, and during the process you may not like them, but the result is very worthwhile.
Yogi Bhajan as a Saturn Teacher, 3HO
"Being a student of Yogi Bhajan was like living in a spiritual pressure cooker 24/7 /365! He had a single objective as your spiritual teacher: to pressurize your life to the point he could change coal to a diamond.
Kundalini Yoga and its amazing power to transform was the main stay of my life then and now. I am eternally grateful for those hard sometimes bitter times and long powerful sadhnas, for that is the sweetness in my life today." Nanak Dev Singh Khalsa
A person once said about sadhana:
"Once sadhana is done, nothing should happen to you.
I said, "No, when sadhana happens, everything should happen to you, and you should come out as a winner, you should come out victorious!"
That is what sadhana gives you. It doesn't give you a written guarantee from God. The one who does sadhana builds himself such a powerful personality, he can conquer anything!
That is why I do my own sadhana.
I have been doing it for years. I do it even now. Some people ask me,
"You are a Master, why do you do sadhana?"
I say, "To remain a Master!"
