Which One is Not a Sikh?
The Guru Meher Sikh Turban Discrimination Sermons
In the five short months that I was in his class, Guru Meher was only there about half the time yet he mentioned his suffrage of Sikh turban discrimination in two separate classes. Most of the time he was teaching yoga in exotic locations like Japan and New York. I didn’t get very much kundalini yoga class out of Guru Meher but I did learn about how badly he has been discriminated against for wearing his Sikh turban in cosmopolitan Los Angeles. I don’t think people are wary of the turban per se, but the sword is a problem.
Senses of the Soul
I used to claim that I chose Yoga West for Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training because of Senses of the Soul by Guru Meher. Now I understand that I chose Yoga West by default because Golden Bridge in Hollywood was defunct when I came to LA in October of 2017. I went to Senses of the Soul every Monday for five months and Dev Avtar substitute taught the class almost as much as Guru M. Dev Avtar did not convey any experiences of turban discrimination.
My sadhana didn’t really go up a level like I thought it would. I faced an incredible amount of adversity from Adarsh at Yoga West. I’m really surprised Guru Meher didn’t say anything to me. I was there with money and time to study yoga. Guru M and Guru Prem talk and talk about how busy they are teaching yoga all over the world, but nobody at Yoga West did anything except fuck with me just in time for the holidays. I was totally on my own, making a fresh start in my hometown after meditating in the desert for two years. I told Guru Meher that and he said, “That’s a lot of meditating.” Yes it was, I responded, standing on Robertson Blvd. and Horner Street in front of Yoga West in the Fall of 2017.
Bored of Directors
I have since found out that Guru M is on the board of directors of Yoga West. Guru Meher could have said something to help me take a few measly yoga classes. The manner in which I was denied the wuwu yoga classes was really mean and small spirited. Yoga West is mean and cold. The girls all look great in their kundalini turban fashions, but there is not a lot of yoga at Yoga West.
