On May 11, 2005 the Sikh News Network reported, "the late Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji, also known as Yogi Bhajan, was honored today at a special reception at the US Capitol in Washington DC. It commemorated last month’s unanimous passage of a bipartisan Congressional Resolution honoring his life and influence. US Senators and Representatives, members of the US Department of State, representatives from the Government of India, dignitaries, officials, and members of the Sikh faith attended the event. In the history of the US Congress, only a handful of spiritual leaders have ever inspired a Joint Resolution honoring their life and work. They include Martin Luther King Jr., Pope John Paul II and Mother Theresa."
