Dear KRI Lead Trainers and National Association Presidents,
Sat Nam. On March 1, 2016 Kundalini Research Institute received, from Karta Singh,of France, his written resignation as a Teacher of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®, as a KRI Aquarian Trainer Academy Mentoring Lead, as a member of Teacher Trainer Executive Council (TTEC) and as a member of the Aquarian Trainer Academy’s Certification Committee. Karta Singh also resigned as a Minister of Sikh Dharma International and as a member of the International Khalsa Council.Now our intention is to create a clear and transparent separation between KRI and Karta Singh, the school of Amrit Nam Sarovar (ANS), and Le Martinet, while at the same time supporting the students of the various programs affected by this transition to complete their studies. KRI will be providing support to the students who are currently participating in ANS sponsored KRI Level One programs in order to enable them to complete the programs and become KRI certified. KRI will also work with all members of the Aquarian Trainer Academy who are currently being mentored by Karta Singh to continue working within the KRI system, if they so desire.
In light of Karta Singh’s resignation the following actions are taking place:
1.Effective March 1st, Karta Singh may no longer participate, in any way, in any KRI programs worldwide.
2.Effective March 21st, Amrit Nam Sarovar will no longer sponsor or be affiliated with any KRI programs.
3. Effective immediately, the contracts for all current KRI Level One and Level Two programs originally signed by Karta Singh and ANS are being reevaluated.
4. Starting this week, communications will begin with Trainers in Training, who have been mentoring with Karta Singh, about their options, opportunities and responsibilities with KRI.
5. Effective March 1st, all qualified Lead Trainers who have been organizing KRI Level One and Level Two programs as part of the ANS school, may continue to contract future programs independent from Amrit Nam Sarovar.
Please contact Hari Charn Kaur at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding this matter.
Also please remove any direct links on your website and social media accounts to Amrit Nam Sarovar Teacher Training Programs. You can link instead to the contracting Lead Trainer of each program.
We thank your for your patience as KRI continues to clarify this separation. We will continue to update you as more information is clarified.
