Lies and Deceit in the name of 'Sat Nam'.
Together with a colleague, Dr Ron Alexander wanted to study Yogi Bhajan's meditative abilities.
Yogi Bhajan agreed to get them 'in',
but then refused to be measured.
After attending a number of YB's lectures, the young scientists concluded that 95% of the teachings were junk. They saw how stories beyond believability were accepted by devotees.
As a child, GuruNam Atwal
who was born and raised in the 3HO community, felt the discrepancy between
what the adults said and what they did.
She explains how she learned
to deny her own truth.
When Yogi Bhajan was very sick at the end,
he liked to have Siri Nirongkar around him.
Siri talks about
the junk food that killed YB.
While Yogi Bhajan was preaching a healthy diet, he was not so strict on food for himself.
One day he invited students to 'come at him',
Kirtan Kaur accepted the challenge and
confronted Yogi Bhajan with his overweight.
In 2013 Philip Deslippe,
an historian who used to practise Kundalini Yoga, wrote a scientifc article
'From Maharaj to Mahan Tantric'
about the lies Yogi Bhajan had told about his past, his teachers and
the origin of his version of Kundalini Yoga.
So much happened right in the open ...
There is a lot that people willfully ignored.
says Mani Niall.
One day Yogi Bhajan asked them to write down the 10 things to appear more spiritual.
Tej Steiner discovered how Yogi Bhajan
had been systematically sexually abusing
his secretaries and witnessed the arrest
of GuruJot Singh on drug trafficking charges.
He called upon his peers to take a stand and question their spiritual leader.
As a result he was shunned, slandered and isolated. Yogi Bhajan even uttered a death threat against him.

In 1977 Dr.Trilochan Singh
wrote an interesting book
'Sikhism and Tantric Yoga'
He is a renowned Sikh writer.
He knew Yogi Bhajan rather well and was very unhappy with the way YB intertwined yoga and Sikhism.
In the book, he gives details of YB's 1970 visit to India with 84 of his students. After that trip, 80 students dropped out. During this visit, Yogi Bhajan broke with his old teachers. From then on he also changed the stories he gave about the origins of his yoga knowledge.
Be aware that these are only fragments of the truth.
Many more stories are out there, told and untold.
Telling these stories is needed. It is a prerequisite for justice and reconciliation.
