Welcome to HariKaurBird.com


Hari Kaur Bird

My name is Hari Kaur Bird.
My motto, "Here, to serve."

POINTS TO PONDER

"The mere act of teaching implies that one
wishes the world well."
-- Roger Rosenblatt

“The job of a spiritual teacher is to poke,
provoke, confront and elevate." --
Yogi Bhajan

"Life is the only gift of God within you ... be grateful." -- Yogi Bhajan

"Think about it. You grew your magnificent brain, perhaps the most
complicated thing in the world. And you grew it without even thinking
about it. A supremely intelligent Life Force of unknown origin created
and sustains this miracle of life. It's what we refer to as God." --
Hari Singh

"Underneath the superficial self, which pays attention to this and that, there
is another self more really us than I. And the more you become aware of
the Unknown Self -- if you become aware of it -- the more you realize that it is
inseparably connected with everything else that is. You are a function of this total
galaxy, bounded by the Milky Way, and this galaxy is a function of all other galaxies.
You are that vast thing that you see far, far off with great telescopes. You look and
look, and one day you are going to wake up and say, "Why, that's me!" And in
knowing that, you know that you never die. You are the eternal thing that comes
and goes, that appears -- now as John Jones, now as Mary Smith, now as
Betty Brown -- and so it goes, forever and ever and ever." --
Alan Watts

I am a native of the Midwest. I hold a current Florida Insurance license. I'm a wife, mother and grandmother, as well. I have served as an Administrator, Opticians' Assistant, and as a Community College Computer Lab Assistant. I am also serving as a mentor in my Florida community.

I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share some interesting news and views with you and our family along with some helpful information and a few laughs. You'll find many diverse and interesting links to do with Life, the people, places, things and events happening all around us. Some are of a humorous nature. Most are informative and thought provoking. And some can even be considered divergent.

Our favorite bird.

Below is a special assortment of just a few of the diverse collection of hundreds of links in our University of Diversity library having to do with the awesome Diversity of Life, the people, places, things and events, which are happening all around us and within us, all of it being an expression of the One Creator, the One Source. See Acknowledgements.

So as a Student of Life, sit back, relax, rejoice, and prepare to ponder the sublime, the shocking, the silly, the subtle, the serious, the surprising, the strange, the secret, the superb, the sacred, the Supreme. Life, after all, is a University of Diversity. Just a few examples follow.

Open Letter To The First Teachers



Those who shall not learn to obey shall never be
in a position to command. --
Siri Singh Sahib

Create dependable children, not dependent children. Give your children
the basic values to face their own tomorrows, not be blinded by yours. Make
them proper personalities, not helpless puppets. Position them for success; do
not paralyze them with the commotion of your emotions. --
Siri Singh Sahib

The basic aspect of you as woman is not in your sensuality and in your dramas.
You are not only the givers of life, you are the manufacturers of character. Whatever
character you will give to your children, that shall be their future. --
Siri Singh Sahib

Children are born with intrinsic leadership traits that prepare them for life.
These must translate positively into the lives they lead as citizens of the world.
These are: Service, Justice, Courage, Compassion, Decisiveness, Reliability,
Integrity, Initiative, Knowledge, Loyalty, Enthusiasm, Endurance.
-- Hari Singh

OUR YOUTH DESERVE LEADERSHIP TRAINING
New Mexico Military Institute can provide this.
A two-year leadership program is available.

Sat Nam, Khalsa ji! I am a passionate proponent of a more equitable balance between our collective Saint-Soldier mind set as Sant Sipahi. In this context I strongly urge Khalsa parents, especially our women, the first teachers of our children, to consider the following points.

.) I urge you to consider enrolling our children at the New Mexico Military Institute, located in Roswell, New Mexico. My kids graduated high school with honors at NMMI in the early '80s, the first children of Sikh Dharma to attend a military school in America. The Siri Singh Sahib expressed pleasure upon observing cadet training when he visited NMMI in 1983. He advised us then that he would have enrolled his own children at NMMI if he had known of its existence. Another group of children who attended school in India later attended NMMI in the early '90s.


Sikh minister, M.S.S. Hari Singh Bird, addresses Sikh cadets in front of the NMMI chapel, 1992.

New Mexico Military Institute offers an outstanding two year college option for your sons and daughters after they complete their time at Miri Piri Academy. For those families for which MPA is not an option, NMMI has an excellent four year high school college prep program in addition to their two year college program. New Mexico Military Institute has been ranked No. 5 on a list of the nation’s top 50 community colleges by an independent organization, i.e., TheBestSchools.org, which has described the Roswell, New Mexico school as the “only state-supported, coeducational, military boarding school in the United States.” The school offers college prep, a four-year high school and a two-year junior college. See NMMI Strategic Measures Statistics.

Each of the former Sikhi students/graduates of NMMI provide a testament to the advantages of attending NMMI, which include a rigorous and challenging lifestyle, camaraderie and fellowship, and outstanding leadership training especially, along with NMMI's excellent scholastic program. This experience prepared them for additional university training, and exciting careers all over the world. NMMI is the only American prep school I know that has a history of accommodating the Sikhi lifestyle, i.e., sadhana, kesh, turban, sipahi training, and vegetarian diet. And it is an excellent environment for Sikhi youth to learn leadership and soldiering skills for which the Siri Singh Sahib was a passionate proponent.

The NMMI program offers MPA students and other Sikh youth a unique and reasonably cost-effective opportunity to transition from the Indian program into the American experience as a unit, and the obvious advantage of continued bonding with their peers. See NMMI Admissions, or click admissions@nmmi.edu, or call 800-421-5376.

.) I urge you to support a resurgence of the Women's Close Order Drill Team, about which the Siri Singh Sahib frequently commented, "If you cannot walk together, you cannot work together." He initiated this training back in the late '70s at Khalsa Women's Training Camp in addition to the Women's Select Rifle Drill Team and Firearms Training.

.) I urge you to reflect on the Siri Singh Sahib's words, "Human is a blend of Saint and Soldier (Sant Sipahi); this is a complete person. If you are not a Soldier your sainthood will be kicked around. If you are only a Soldier, not a Saint, you will start kicking others around."

Again, our youth deserve leadership training going forward. I know of no readily available source of formal leadership training available to our Sikh youth other than the New Mexico Military Institute.

Your thoughts?

Humbly,

Mukhia Singh Sahib Hari Singh Bird Khalsa --
