1. Complete a 120 Day Sadhana
Sadhana means daily spiritual practice. In the Kundalini tradition, we practice the Aquarian Sadhana, which is a 2.5 hour early morning practice, but sadhana can be whatever you do consistently to clear your own consciousness so you can relate to the infinity within you. One of the beautiful things about Kundalini Yoga is that there are so many options! Every single kriya and meditation creates specific changes to your habits, based on the number of days you practice. Most people do 40 day sadhanas. A lot of people do 90 day sadhanas. We hope to inspire you to try out a meditation for 120 days... at least once! And if you’re really motivated - go for the 1,000 days! Waheguru! It’s a worthy commitment that may just change your life completely.
40 Days: Practice every day for 40 days straight. This will break any negative habits that block you from the expansion possible through the kriya or mantra.
90 Days: Practice every day for 90 days straight. This will establish a new habit in your conscious and subconscious minds based on the effect of the kriya or mantra. It will change you in a very deep way.
120 Days: Practice every day for 120 days straight. This will confirm the new habit of consciousness created by the kriya or mantra. The positive benefits of the kriya get integrated permanently into your psyche.
1000 Days: Practice every day for 1000 days straight. This will allow you to master the new habit of consciousness that the kriya or mantra has promised. No matter what the challenge, you can call on this new habit to serve you.

“If you want to learn something, read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it. If you want to master something, teach it.” - Yogi Bhajan
Yogi Bhajan didn’t come to the west in 1969 to gather students. He came to create teachers. Despite the century old tradition of keeping the teachings of Kundalini secret, Yogi Bhajan knew that this technology needed to be shared with the world for people to heal and wake up. Teaching, sharing your experience, and serving others is the where all the good stuff happens! Perhaps you sign up for a teacher training, or find another area in your life where you can pass on to others what you’ve learned.
3. Attend a 3HO Winter or Summer Solstice Sadhana Celebration
At least once in your life, make it a priority to attend Winter or Summer Solstice (in fact, Summer Solstice is RIGHT around the corner)!! A 9-day spiritual gathering based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, including White Tantric Yoga, Morning Sadhana, Live Kirtan, Seva, a cleansing diet, and an instant community of 2,000 like-minded souls. It’s such a transformational experience, you may just be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t make it at least once in your life. There are many yogis that go every single year. Get there! It’s time!
