If we come across teachings that enhance, heal, and awaken our lives, we might feel gratitude. In the eastern traditions, no student would approach a spiritual teacher without first offering a gift.”Emptyhanded you come, emptyhanded you go!” For this reason Yogi Bhajan taught us, not to share the teachings for free. There is a karmic law of exchange, and whatever the student takes, he or she has to pay for it in one way or another. We also have been given the laws of prosperity. The tradition of Das Vandh is the sharing of the tenth part (tithing) of whatever we earn in charity, in the same way as we give the first tenth of our day when we do sadhana, and the first tenth of our body – our head – when we fall in love with the Guru. Gurudakshina is an offering to the source of the teachings in pure gratitude.
As Kundalini Yoga teachers, we are asked to share 11% of everything we earn from teaching activities with one of the organisations within the 3HO family. If you would like to serve the Kundalini Yoga Teachers in the UK and the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, you are welcome to donate to KYTA.
