KRI on the Aquarian Sadhana
By Nirvair Singh Khalsa
An aspect of Summer Solstice Sadhana that is always a highlight for attendees, is early morning group Sadhana. Live music from our wonderful 3ho musicians and hundreds of yogis bathing in the sound current! It is, simply, a beautiful experience.
KRI gets questions about the Aquarian Sadhana. Is there a new Sadhana? Did Yogi Bhajan leave instructions to anyone for a new Sadhana?
KRI has made extensive inquiries into this question. Yogi Bhajan did not leave anything with his Staff or with anyone else about a new Sadhana after 11/11/11. The only instruction that Yogi Bhajan left for us was that we could continue the current Aquarian Sadhana, exactly as he taught it, or KRI could decide to change it. Our KRI Teacher Trainer Executive Committee, comprised of teacher trainers from all over the world, met about this topic and decided that we would keep doing the Aquarian Sadhana, with no changes, indefinitely.
No changes to the overall structure of the Sadhana or to the order, positions, mudras or mantras in the meditation. There is no alternate version of the Aquarian Sadhana. So, you can continue to use your favorite Sadhana music as well as look forward to many new versions from our wonderful musicians! If you would like to know the history of our 3HO early morning Sadhana, there is a great write up in our most popular manual, Kundalini Yoga Sadhana Guidelines, 2nd Edition.
