Yogi Bhajan, Siri Singh Sahib
Founder of Miri Piri Academy
Miri Piri Academy was founded by the Siri Singh Sahib, Harbhajan Singh Puri, informally known as Yogi Bhajan, in 1996 with the help of his son Kulbir Singh. After years of prayer and with the support of both the local community and the Western Sangat, a school dedicated to training the next generation of leaders was born in Amritsar.
Yogi Bhajan began the mission of creating teachers when in 1968 he began teaching Kundalini Yoga in the West. Over time, his students gained an interest in the teachings of Sikh Dharma and through his example began to adopt the Sikh way of life. In 1971, in acknowledgement of his extraordinary impact of spreading the universal message of Sikh Dharma, the president of the SGPC (the governing body of Sikh Temples in India), Sant Chanan Singh called him the Siri Singh Sahib, Chief Religious and Administrative Authority for the Western Hemisphere.
During his life, Yogi Bhajan established many businesses and non-profit organizations including 3HO, the Kundalini Yoga Research Institute, Sikh Dharma International, and his most beloved, Miri Piri Academy.
Chief Supporter of MPA
Kulbir Singh is the youngest son of Yogi Bhajan. After attending boarding school in India, he worked to secure land for Miri Piri Academy in the ancestral birthplace of Guru Hargobind and spent five years overseeing its construction. Since then, with his support, MPA has grown in beauty and influence, hosting and inspiring students from over 39 countries.
Miri Piri Academy
Miri Piri Academy is located in the sacred city of Amritsar, India, the heart of Sikh Dharma, and the home of Siri Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) that was brought to life by Guru Ram Das Sahib. We have 13 acres of beautiful land that hosts day and boarding school students, as well as adult courses and community events. Just 9 km from Siri Harmandir Sahib, experiencing the Golden Temple fulfills the longing of a lifetime for many Sikhs and Kundalini Yogis.
Four hours away in Anandpur Sahib resides Dashmesh Sadan, the serene home of Yogi Bhajan near the birthplace of the Khalsa. Seekers travel to this historical land of Guru Teg Bahadur Ji and Guru Gobind Singh Ji to find tranquility and renewal of the spirit.
