On April 5, 2005 the Sikh News Network reported, "the U.S. Senate has approved a Congressional resolution introduced by U.S. Senators Jeff Bingaman and Pete Domenici that honors the late Sikh leader Yogi Bhajan. Rep. Tom Udall introduced the same resolution in the House of Representatives. That measure passed the House on Tuesday. The resolution points out that among his many accomplishments, Yogi Bhajan founded 'Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization (3HO),' a nonprofit private educational and scientific foundation dedicated to serving humanity, improving physical well-being, deepening spiritual awareness, and offering guidance on nutrition and health. He was later given the title of Siri Singh Sahib, which made him the chief religious and administrative authority for Sikhism in the Western Hemisphere."
