When the child at the time of birth comes out of the mother’s womb, the connection between the mind and the Creator at the umbilicus center gets severed. This end is called mool (the root). This forms one shore of the Bhavsagar. Gurbani says: mUl duAwrY bMiDAw bMDu ] At the root, the shore of Bhavsagar is controlled (like a dam). (SGGS 1159) The other shore of bhavsagar is located between the eyes (where there is an edge of sehaj sunn); the flow of vital air (pawan) keeps changing. On opening of the nine doors and vital air entering in through mouth. The mind then merges with the air. This spot forms the other shore of the Bhavsagar. shj guPw mih Awsxu bwiDAw ] After crossing the Bhavsagar, the mind sits in the cave of celestial bliss. (SGGS 370) The space between Dharan (belly button) and upper end of the Sukhmana channel is called Bhavsagar. duhw isirAw kw Awip suAwmI ] KylY ibgsY AMqrjwmI ] He Himself is the Master of both ends (Bhavsagar). He plays and He enjoys; He is the Inner-knower, of hearts. (SGGS 277) The Supreme Father maintains His subtle spiritual connection and union with the mind through the vital breath. So we have to engage in Waheguru (Guru’s shabad) Simran completely attuning and absorbing our consciousness in the vital air. Inhaling we have to chant ‘Wahe’ and listen attentively to the sound produced (dhun). When exhaling, chant ‘Guru’and listen to the sound with focused awareness. Thus chanting Gurmantra when inhaling and exhaling, wall of falsehood (between the mind and the supreme soul) will be demolished and the mind will cross over to the fourth dimension. (Chautha paad) Thus crossing the ocean of worldly desires, ambitions and craving (Bhavsagar). Rom Rom Simran: Consciousness manifests in every cell of the human body. It is this consciousness that yums (the minions of death) snatch out at the time of death. This results in agonizing pain. To escape this agony all manmukhs pray for mercy. But to escape Yums noose, we have to do rom rom Simran; so that, we can master the technique of withdrawing our consciousness from our cells and bring it back at will. In this way we can freely go to and come back from our Nij ghar (The Tenth Door, home of mind). This Simran (rom, rom Simran) is done only after one has become an adept in swaas, giraas technique (inhale, exhale method). In this method when surat (consciousness) has become attuned to the Shabad, breathing is briefly held and the sound of Gurmantra (Waheguru) is synchronized with the heartbeat. This will cause every cell to vibrate and resonate with the beat of the sound current of Gurmantra synchronized with the heartbeat. Gradually, every thing that one will come in contact with will seem to be chanting ‘Waheguru, Waheguru’in spontaneous and continuous stream of divine sound. This method of Simran is called ‘rom, rom simran.’ about this Gurbani says: gurmuiK roim roim hir iDAwvY The Gurmukh meditates on the Lord with every cell of his body. (SGGS 941) roim roim rivAw hir nwmu The Lord's Naam permeates each and every cell. (SGGS 1144)
