AADI SHRI ARUN:
In an earlier article, I have explained the entire journey that an individual soul takes to come down from Anami to this physical existence. There are two large steps involved. First the Lord comes down from the Anami to Sach-khand where He appears as brilliant soft light bejewelled with diamond like stars and with divine sounds permeating the entire region. The saints who visit this place say that the scene and the experience is impossible to describe through words and it can only be experienced.
Satlok is an ever-present abode of God and it is from here that the Lord creates many universes that are all finite and time bound. These creations are first imagined in the mind of God and then physically manifested for a period of time before being withdrawn back into the body of God.
The first step in the creation of any universe starts from a region called the Bhanwar Gupha. This is also called as the Whirling Cave vortex. It is also called Ana-HU which simply means- I AM HE. This is why Hindus call it So-ham. So-ham means I AM THAT. Certain people also call it So-ham Brahm.
In this place, there is a rotating swing which constantly is in subtle motion and the individual spirits swing on it. This region is surrounded by innumerable spiritual islands who all emanate the sounds of ‘Soham Soham’ and ‘Ana-Hoo Ana-Hoo’. Spirit entities who reach here playfully and rapturously enjoy these sounds. Whiffs of scents of various kinds and sweet fragrance of sandalwood are enjoyed by the spirit there and the melodies of flutes are heard. Other characteristics of this region cannot be reduced to writing as they can be realized by the spirit only when it reaches there after performing Abhyas. Upon arriving in Bhanwar Gupha, the soul’s nirat (power to see) and surat (capacity to hear) attain a state of satisfaction.
