My birth name is Jeremy, spiritual name Siri Gobind Singh. Painting is my occupation and I am a very hands on painting contractor. Kundalini yoga changed who I am. Practicing for 14 years and instructing for can easily say that Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is a keystone in my life. Providing structure and a simple, yet diverse application method for the training of the mind, the practice has lifted me through tough times and provided ballast when good times can be too good. It has allowed me to develop tolerance, tenacity, and a bit of grit. I can find the sacred in the mundane, and a silver lining hiding in every dark cloud. My first teacher was a devout Sikh who wore a Turban and Kirta, malas and a shawl. My dear friend insisted that I go to the "Swami's" class. I thought that he may very well fly on a magic carpet to class. After being in awe when in his presence for 2 years, I had the opportunity to accompany him and a few students to a late dinner after class. To my absolute surprise I found out that he too was in construction! He told me to do Japa as I worked. Mentally vibrate Sat as I brush one way. Mentally Nam as the brush, or roller, or sandpaper went the other way. Devote your days work to the Infinite.
