In a world filled with stress and distractions, it's easy to lose touch with your inner joy. We slip into stress, being stuck in a rut and unmotivated. Even when our destination may seem clear to us but it takes us weeks or even months to get out of these situations.
What if you had a faster route to help you? That could cut the chains of feeling numb, unmotivated, stressed and in a rut.
See our milestone and annual events below.

Mere Mun is the first of its kind album compiled together of Shabad Kirtan sung in each of the various different Raags from within the Sikh Scripture using Sikh string instruments.
Compiled to enhance the listener's inner dialogue and understanding to their emotional state so they may live as the true expression of themselves. The album plays a significant role in our Raj Academy online courses as an invaluable resource for emotional awareness and creating a balanced life. Discover and listen to the album here.
The album received a nomination from the Guinness World Records for being the first compilation to contain 59 tracks composed, produced, sung, and performed by one individual. Watch the first interview on the Mere Mun Album.

"Absolutely Stunning performance. Will give anyone goosebumps."
"This was amazing! You really planted the seed in my head to learn the Dilruba! I don't know why but I'm drawn to it now after seeing you all yesterday."
"I am more conscious of my emotions and how to gain another perspective on them. Sikh Music helps me understand better how to use my emotions rather than allowing them to take over my emotional state."
"Sikh Music is a way for me to understand myself and connect to myself. It allows me to understand my potential and capacity better."
"Amazing and soul churning compositions. I was uplifted to a meditational state never experiencd before. Could feel the divine presence as if taken to Guru babag' s darbar. Shukar hai Shukar hai parwardigaar k saade panth vich aje v ese rattan present ne. Would luv to learn to play the instrument. Will get in touch soon."

"Prof Surinder Singh ji is a musician and a singer of a unique and par excellence quality. He has established himself way ahead from other Gurbani singers and musicians. I have listened to almost all his presentations. Majority of them are masterpieces. Gobinday Mukanday has been sung very sweetly and is just mesmerizing and connects you to the Lord Master. It's just another great contribution to mankind by Prof Surinder Singh ji."
"Have been listening to your collection of Raag-based shabad for all these years. It gives my mind the ultimate solace. Never been hooked better than this. God has shown through you the correct way of singing shabads well forgotten by the Sikh religion. This is Meditative bliss. You are blessed to sing Raag Adharit shabad by the Gurus. I must say you are very well forwarding the invaluable Sewa through Raj conservative project in Europe."
"You are truly blessed having listened to this vibrating musical melody throughout creation also in the present of lord house suchkhand hand of God upon your head will always be guiding you, may I take blessings from you and now to our lord vibrating musical instruments in infinite realities Lord bless you all."
"This video just popped up just scrolling and I couldn't stop and watched till end in single posture. I cried, felt ecstatic, meditative, reverence to Guru Gobind Singh about whom I learnt other than just sacrificing his all He was such a great poet. Thanks to each performer I heard it on youtube (thanks for this wonderful recording) cannot even imagine what it could mean to hear live. Great way to end Har Har - May Guru take away sufferings of all. A good deal of time is going to get invested in going through other Videos of Professor Surinder Singh."
"The words of yogi ji are straight to heart and effect as deep wound of unconditional love"
"Thank You, For this beautiful Feeling that I am going through at this moment."
"Very informative for new generations good presentations look forward to see more programmes like this thank all of you made good effort thank you all of you once again from UK."
