Example of Teaching
“In the simplest terms, awakening is a spectral process. There is a spectrum of being awake, being slightly awake, being moderately awake, being quite awake, being extremely awake and being you know…fully awake. Whether being fully awake in this moment will achieve the same result as the next moment, is the key to the definition, in that, awakening is not a condition; it’s a process. A replacement word is enlightenment which has now become a cliché. So, awaken and enlightened are synonymous with each other.”

Guru Singh is a celebrated third-generation yogi, master spiritual teacher, author, and musician.
He teaches conscious living through the tools of Humanology, Kundalini yoga, meditation, and sacred sound. He was born in Seattle in 1945 into a yogic spiritual household to an artist father and musician mother. His teachings grew from an esoteric curiosity inspired by his family’s deep connection to the masters of India and the blessings of being ready when teachers appeared.
Paramahansa Yogananda was his first teacher. Guru Singh’s great-aunt met Yogananda in Calcutta in 1916 and travelled with him from India to America in 1919. She studied with and served him until his passing in 1952.
In January 1969, Guru Singh met Yogi Bhajan, a spiritual leader from northern India and master of Kundalini yoga. From that moment on Guru Singh has been studying and teaching Kundalini yoga and meditation, a science taught in India for over five thousand years. He has spread this ancient science with passion and a practical fusion of Eastern mysticism into Western pragmatism.
Guru Singh’s books, music, yoga/meditation classes, blog posts, podcasts, and humanology lectures uplift thousands worldwide. Based in Los Angeles at Yoga West and Golden Bridge yoga studios, while traveling the world, he also teaches Kundalini Level I and II teacher training courses. He meets students privately for consultations and sound healing sessions when in Los Angeles.
Guru Singh lives and teaches globally with his wife Guruperkarma Kaur. They have raised and guided two lovely children—as well as countless “adopted” ones, all of whom continue this path of service. These vibrant lives exemplify a masterful balance for the 21st century yogic family. This lifestyle is known as Grishtha Ashram in Sanskrit—the life of an enlightened householder. It’s a spiritually purposeful life of service that follows a path of enlightenment while raising families and participating fully in the real-world of work, worship, and community building.

- “After all—materially—from 'nothing' we come and to 'nothing' we return, but we are really always 'something' forever . . . we are forever the form of our infinite envisioning. Such is the nature of nothing being everything being nothing.”
- “The illusion of time is in fact an illusion; this doesn't mean however that it is unnecessary to work with . . . it means it is an illusion, a puzzle, a riddle to master, to work through and to not be ruled by.”
