The 3HO (Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization) lifestyle gives us a blueprint for building a healthy, happy, and holy life. One of the first things that Yogi Bhajan taught is that it’s the birthright of every human being to be healthy, happy, and holy.
There’s a yogic art and science to all aspects of human life. There’s a yogic way to get up in the morning, to go to sleep at night, to eat, to breathe, to brush your teeth, to take a shower, to communicate, to raise children. Every aspect of life has an enlightened, efficient, and effective way to do it. Yogi Bhajan studied and mastered this technical and spiritual knowledge in India, and brought this gift to the West.
The 3HO lifestyle—the Kundalini Yoga lifestyle—is a yoga and lifestyle for householders, for people who have to cope with the daily challenges and stresses of work, family, business, and relationships. It does not require you to live on a mountaintop or in a cave.
“The purpose of all our efforts is simply to extend your awareness in your consciousness so you can have this foundation in experience and a base in positive habits. Then you can smoothly plan your life to any extent you like. You can radiate creativity and Infinity in all aspects of your life. That is the practical result of yoga. It is the capacity and right to live a healthy, happy, and holy life. That is why we called our yoga family 3HO.”
