Sikh Dharma of Colorado is an affiliate of Sikh Dharma International which serves the needs of the global Sikh Sangat (community).
Sikh Dharma of Colorado had its beginning in 1968 when Yogi Bhajan, who would later be known as The Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji, came to United States to teach Kundalini Yoga. In addition to being a yoga master, Yogi Bhajan lived as a devoted Sikh. Through his inspiration, insight and example, many Westerners, also adopted the Sikh way of life, attracted by the spiritual practices of Sikh Dharma, its egalitarian teachings and respect for all religions. Sikh Dharma International and its affiliates were established to support the growing Sikh community in the west.
