Master Teachers Location List

(By Country and State)


Legacy Teachers are all of those early students of Yogi Bhajan who sat at his feet, who were personally chiseled by him, and who deliver his teachings today. Until recently, this crusty group of graying middle-agers and senior citizens was affectionately referred to as "the old-timers."

Maybe they're not so old. Didn't the Master tell us that age is measured by flexibility of the spine? Many of the so-called old timers have very flexible spines. These early pioneers of our Dharma were sent by Yogi Bhajan to teach Kundalini Yoga all over the world. They opened ashrams, led spiritual communities, and inspired people through their lifestyle and their devotion to Yogiji's teachings. They stood the test of time and the test of the fire of the Master's personal touch.Source,  3HO History (HS)

Guru Dev Singh Khalsa ITALY aka Sant Singh Sahib Guru Dev Singh Khalsa, Ph.D

MSS Guru Dev Singh, Ph.D is the pre-eminent healer and Teacher of Sat Nam Rasayan®. He is acclaimed in the Americas and Europe as one of the greatest healers of our time. People come to him from around the world to be healed and learn to heal.

Guru Dev Singh, for more than a quarter of a century, has combined the ancient Mayan, Toltec and Curandero traditions of Mexico with Kundalini Yoga and Yogic Healing. His center in Rome, Italy, is renowned for producing some of the finest healers in Europe.

In 1978, Guru Dev Singh began studying Sat Nam Rasayan® in the traditional way, in silence and seated beside his master, Yogi Bhajan. It was this same master who asked Guru Dev Singh to find a way of teaching this method widely, employing a means that would be accessible to all.

Since 1988, he is the master of this method of treatment. He founded the School of Sat Nam Rasayan® in Rome and the Foundation for Sat Nam Rasayan® in Amsterdam and The Center for Contemplative Awareness. He travels the globe teaching healing, meditation and Kundalini yoga.

In November 2001, he was awarded an honorary doctorate for outstanding achievements in the field of natural healing methods, presented by the medical faculty of the Open International University in Colombo (Sri Lanka)

Excerpt from "Sat Nam Rasayan® The Art of Healing" is a healing art that is based on consciousness that has the capacity to become transcendent, to modify the environment. We don't use tools, we use consciousness. Sat Nam Rasayan® is a very simple system. It is based on the quality of the human consciousness that allows it to become transcendent. Transcendent means that just through your awareness, you can produce an effect in an event, in an object.

We make our own consciousness stable. We recognize there is a space we call the Sacred Space. We relate with that specific space and then by moving our awareness, we modify the relation, and we modify the event in some way. It teaches a surprisingly simple way to inner silence.

MSS Gurudhan Singh CA

Starting at about 12 years old, I found my mind asking me a recurring question. What would I be doing when I was 23 years old? I thought this question had to do with what type of work career I would be embarking on. But as it turned out, God had a plan different than mine.

In August 1971, at the age of 23, I began my practice of Kundalini Yoga. Interestingly enough, my initial exposure to Kundalini Yoga was sadhana in the early morning hours. I did sadhana for over 40 days before ever attending a regular class.

Through these first 40 days, a habit was set that has lasted till this very day: Get up before the sun rises, consciously breathe the breath of life; let this deep, rhythmic, relaxed breath go through the body's meridian points to bring the life force and its energy into my system. In other words, activate the Pranic or Eighth Body to bring life's electricity.

The results of this habit were immediate. Although I always had 'energy,' my energy was now even stronger and more focused. Things that used to disturb me bothered me less. As time passed, my doubts and anxieties began to subside and I found myself becoming more and more neutral in my outlook. I also felt my fears dropping away! After several years, I understood how blessed I was to have received the gift of conscious breathing through Kundalini Yoga.

MSS Gurudhan Singh in August 1971, he was practicing martial arts 4 days a weeks (that lasted 23 years), became the Solstice Camp Director (to this very day), taught Kundalini Yoga every week (still).
