Guru Shabad De Santis, the first Kundalini Yoga and Gatka teacher in Italy, has been training teachers in both disciplines for over 30 years. Yogi Bhajan invited him to become Baba Nihal Singh’s direct Gatka student, and then introduced him personally to the Sword Therapy. At that time, Yogi Bhajan asked Guru Shabad for two twin swords (now kept with the Sikh Dharma treasures), and told him: “One sword will be mine and one will be yours. Each time you will heal by the use of the sword, I will be there with you”.
