Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji, also known as Yogi Bhajan, was the Chief Religious and Administrative Authority for the 3HO and Sikh Dharma community. The Siri Singh Sahib Corporation (SSSC) is the successor to Yogi Bhajan, and its Board of Trustees provides leadership and guidance for the 3HO and Sikh Dharma communities, organizations, and businesses. The SSSC is a tax-exempt religious nonprofit corporation.
The SSSC Board of Trustees carries out its mission to live to and hold the values encompassed in the teachings of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, namely: selfless service, compassion, kindness, honesty, integrity, and trustworthiness. The SSSC Board of Trustees seeks to guide and support the work of the nonprofit and for-profit entities of the 3HO and Sikh Dharma communities.
The organizations under the SSSC’s umbrella are centered on the teachings of Sikh Dharma and of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®. On the spiritual level, the Board sets the direction and vision for the 3HO and Sikh Dharma organizations worldwide by adopting and implementing policies and procedures that embody Khalsa consciousness and values. On the temporal side, it deals with the administrative issues that come with its responsibility to oversee the numerous nonprofit and for-profit organizations that the Siri Singh Sahib created and inspired to benefit humanity.
