September 01, 2020 – Trainer Update

March header

Watch Amrit’s weekly video here – Compassionate Reconciliation, moving ahead carefully and slowly, and the new Aquarian Teacher Manual. 

Click on the “CC” at the bottom of the video to see subtitles in various languages.


  • New Interim Aquarian Teacher – will be released in English on VitalSource today Sept 1st.  It will be available in two formats – one with Yogi Bhajan’s picture and name on the cover, and one without.  The existing manual can still be used as well for those trainers that would prefer that. 

  • Sept TTEC meetings – Like the Global Summit, there will be two “tracks” or daily time slots available, with each covering the same agenda items (so the expectation is that you will only attend one of the two tracks).  Please register here for the time slot that works for you on Sept 20, 21, and 22.  There is the possibility that we may need to go one hour longer at least on Day 1, but the expected times are:
    • Track 1 will be 8:00-12:00 Central European Summer Time (CEST) and 
    • Track 2 will be 17:00 – 21:00 CEST

  • KRI Staffing changes
    • We are saying goodbye (for now) to Sadhu Kaur, who has served as the Professional Development Coordinator, and we are welcoming Siri Sahib Singh from Brazil who will be covering this position.
    • Beginning in September, Inderjot Kaur from Mexico will be working with Japa Kaur, to keep expanding KRI’s Online Courses. 

  • Certification Committee is looking for a new member – a description of what this committee does (currently – knowing that it may change), the eligibility requirements, and the selection procedure are outlined in this document.  If you meet the qualifications and are interested, please email Amrit Singh.

  • The KRI Board of Directors is looking for new members – The intention is to strengthen and balance Board representation broadly across the globe and to include voices that represent the views and perspectives of our diverse community.  To that end, we invite you to self-nominate and/or recommend qualified candidates who are interested in re-inventing KRI to meet the needs, the consciousness, and the heart of this New Age.  They do NOT need to be teacher trainers.  If you are interested in self-nominating or know of a person who would love to serve the teachings and technologies of Kundalini Yoga, please send a request for more information and an application to Gurusahay Singh Khalsa.

  • Request for Prayers – Healing prayers are requested for Hari Jiwan Singh from Germany, who is awaiting a lung transplant.
