i realize that this is totally out of left field, but what is 3h0?

Confused Khalsa said...

3H0 is a organisation set up by Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan.

“Happiness is your birthright!” This is what Yogi Bhajan declared on Jan 5, 1969 when he founded 3HO.
3HO Healty Happy Holy Organization

Making that declaration, he said that it would be the mission of 3HO to help people be healthy, happy and holy. Provide them with the time-proven technology and sacred science of Kundalini Yoga, meditation, a healthy, vegetarian diet, and a philosophy of compassion and kindness.

left field? :)

I just happen to find your blog. Great posts on Sikhi. I liked the story about keeping kirpan at all times with you. Is the bleached blond guy in the blog picture really you?

Confused Khalsa said...


no jee, thats just a random picture :)

hahah...yes, your inquiry about "left field" is fully justified. I just read it again today and yes...I'm quite confused myself. In my defense, it was quite late when I made the comment (not 7:42 am but in fact 12ish)lol. Perhaps I wanted to say "I realize this is totally out of the blue"... but anyways, thanks for the info.
