A simmering lawsuit could decide the fate of Yogi Bhajan’s $1 billion Sikh empire

A judge in Oregon will soon decide who should control the late Yogi Bhajan’s Sikh business empire, including the omnipresent Yogi tea brand and what may be New Mexico’s largest private company, Akal Security.

Will control remain with the coup leaders€”the Sikh Dharma Stewardship and its parent company, Unto Infinity of Oregon€”whom Bhajan left in charge of the sect’s business side?

Or will it go to the former SDI board, which includes Bhajan’s widow and others entrusted with religious matters?

Neither side can claim total purity, says the Santa Fe Reporter.
