Creative Living in Action
I am Raghubir and I am an artist, yogi, writer, and educator. I teach Kundalini Yoga and meditation and I teach art.
As yogis, we practice the tools and technology to become aware of our own human condition and to raise our own consciousness. As yoga teachers, we instruct and help others to do the same. If we can assist in the growth and development of one person, they can in turn contribute to the cumulative health and wellness of their community.
My interest as an artist is to open conversations about accessing and interacting with the subtle realms and how spiritual practice and art practice are one and the same. Another part of these conversations is how as artists, we have a moral responsibility to share our sensitivity and skills with the planet in any way we can. This uplifts and transforms our communities, the environment, planet Earth and all her inhabitants.
As a teaching artist, I take my life experience as a creative person (which includes my spiritual practice), and I apply it to the art practices I teach.
What is The Eleven Yogic Arts of Creative Living?
The Eleven Yogic Arts of Creative Living is one of two books I published in 2020; the result of many passionate years of research, practice and presenting the material in workshops and classes in yoga studios, colleges, high schools and art institutions. Originally conceived of as a series of volumes that would explore the progressive depth of consciousness that is achieved as a result of the academic and physical rigor of practicing yogic technology, this volume distilled the many years of experience into one comprehensive easy-to-read handbook for living an extraordinary and creative life.
Filled with anecdotes, quotes and practical tools and exercises, this is a yoga manual for people of any age who want
to improve their creative skills, learn how to handle challenges, get tips on overcoming artistic blocks, and gaining a better understanding of how creativity "works". Not just another yoga manual, The Eleven Yogic Arts of Creative Living unpacks how Yogi Bhajan's Universal Law of Creativity - to conceive, flourish and deliver - informs everything we do.
Shortly thereafter, I published the Work Book for the Eleven Yogic Arts of Creative Living, which, in addition to standing alone, is a great way to experience Kundalini yoga through a creative lens. You can find the link to purchase these books here.
What is a Blueprint for Creativity?
Helping people give birth to their true creative selves is something I've done for most of my life. My vast knowledge and experience as an artist and arts educator gives me practical knowledge of the creative process in many fields including visual arts, music, performance, and sports. I've taught the effect of Kundalini Yoga on creativity inside of the Los Angeles School System to high school students at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts as well as teaching workshops at the Rhode Island School of Design, UCLA, and OTIS College of Art and Design. As a professional artist, I have trained young artists to have the courage, initiative and confidence to work in the professional art arena.
And on the subject of training, having participated and trained for many sporting events myself, I understand how one can utilize the yogic approach for improving athletic performance and a competitive edge. I teach classes and workshops all over the LA area and will travel anywhere to share these teachings. Whether they know it or not, my students at Notre Dame High School are benefiting from yogic tools on how to think creatively when handling problems or impasses in their work.
Creating a Blueprint for Creativity is an essential tool for living an extraordinary life and appears as the eleventh yogic art in both my books. It consists of a plan of action that includes various elements such as a dedicated creativity practice of some kind, yoga/meditation/pranayam/mantra tools, acknowledging gratitude, and a commitment to paying attention and self-care.
What is Kundalink?
When Kundalink started in 2008, it was intended to be a one-stop Kundalini Yoga clothing, product and information resource. Over time it became a project to bring together all aspects of teaching, studying, practicing, and living a Creative Life through the embodiment of Yogi Bhajan's teachings. I think of it as an umbrella under which All Things Kundalini can reside.
Kundalink also includes a small collection of products that are made for especially for YOU so that you don't have to spend time searching high and wide to get simple and comfortable 100% natural fiber yoga clothing and conscious products. And while you are here, you can purchase tee shirts, head coverings, white cotton clothing, private sessions, and even hand-made Italian Sneakers that were designed to spread yogic teachings one step at a time, and other Kundalink© endorsed products for your active and creative lifestyle. Kundalini continually shifts and adapts to the times.

What is Kundalini Yoga? Kundalini is your creative potential. You experience it when the energy of the glandular system combines with the energy of the nervous system to create such a sensitivity that the totality of the brain receives signals and integrates them. Then you become totally & wholly aware, and your creative potential becomes available to you.
The power of Kundalini Yoga also lies in the actual experience. It goes right into your heart and extends your consciousness so you may have a wider horizon of grace and of knowing the truth. Ultimately you come to understand your existence in relationship to the universe and understand you already are and this brings you to the practical experience of Infinity. You can then radiate creativity and infinity in all aspects of your daily life.
Kundalini Yoga is considered the most comprehensive and holistic of yogas, combining meditation, asanas (physical exercises), mantra and pranayam (breathing exercises). “Kundalini” literally means “the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved.” This poetic metaphor describes the flow of energy and consciousness that exists within each and every one of us; enabling us to merge with universal consciousness. Fusing individual and universal consciousness, the micro and the macro, is what yoga is all about.
How can Kundalini Yoga improve your life? There is no time like the present to take control of your life. Excuses, bad habits, distractions are all self-made in order to keep you from being the most creative YOU that you can be. Why? Because sometimes it's easier just to stay where we are; bad habits and all. Or maybe you might end up being successful and you're unsure of how that might feel or affect your life as it is.
Kundalini Yoga can help you in many ways by making you aware, mentally flexible and courageous so that you can successfully navigate your life. It can help you to identify the obstacles and difficulties that hold you back from living the creative life you want. It can and will help you to get in touch with your most powerful, positive, productive, and peaceful CREATIVE SELF. Once you do, you'll be amazed how easy and stress-free your life can be...but all you have to do is start.
Yogi Bhajan had often said, “I have come to create teachers, not to gather students. I have come by my Guru’s grace to serve those souls who shall serve the Aquarian Age.”
He began to share a body of teachings which we call “Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan.” With perfect consciousness and grace he built a house of teachings to serve the Aquarian consciousness. These teachings help us to live better, more creative and prosperous lives in this Aquarian Age.
A student once asked him, “How can I get to know you better?” He replied. “I am my teachings. Read them, practice them, and you will know me.”
