Void is pure emptiness pure awareness of awareness its infinite ocean of awareness being thats all, there is nothing beyond it. Void is bit unfortunate term pure empitness or nirgun would be right term. However, realization of nirgun only is not full realization. I am not sure if author has had full realization but according to advaita absolute and gurmat advait sidhant full realization is nirgun and also sargun, its full ekta of sargun and nirgun realization -sargun nirgun nirankar (under pinning both)- Ikongkar - One universal awareness expressing itself in form ...also in other traditions - emptiness is form, form is emptiness, always being always becoming- pure stillness in its movement

No, "Void" is NOT pure emptiness/awareness of awareness. And the real thing is beyond this Void. In-fact, this so-called Void is the last attempt of the Mind to deceive the progressing Soul. Many Saints have spoken about this area, which is very dangerous because nothing is going to help there, except the Guru. If one stuck in that region, then there won't be any further births but still stuck in the region.

This is the area where the real Mind resides, this area is beyond the 3 qualities.......in other words, this is the area where Kaal resides (hidden away from all his creation - Kaal's creation); this area was given to Kaal by the God.

Moreover, please do NOT start debating that this is Radhaswami thinking. I mentioned that because these things are discussed by many Saints/Brahmgyani but not much published information, is available; whereas the starters (not that they wanted to start) of Radhaswami path have published and discussed these concepts widely; so it's easier to locate the information. In-fact, its only the Radhaswamis that have explained the Anurag Sagar (by Bhagat Kabir) in great detail. Today's Radhaswamis are entirely different (just like the mainstream Sikhs).

At last if I'm not wrong, then Sant Waryam Singh Jis books would have this information available.

I am providing void interpretation based on zen traditions which is pure emptiness pure awareness of awareness (knowledge of knowledge its not blank as someone there to witness void) again void its unfortunate term.

I think Void is the correct term if we are referring to Shunya (Sanskrit word). And yes, it is the knowledge of knowledge and pure awareness of awareness.......but NOT the knowledge itself.

Bottom line is neither me nor you have attained that state, so we're just putting what we learnt (understood at our current stage) from various sources.

and also the first article stated this thread is NOT talking about real "Void" because no Mantra could reach that region; that area "Shunya" is devoid of sound also.....that's the reason it is called Shunya/Void. Only the Soul who has gone beyond that area could help there, no matter what. I remember reading something along these lines in one of the books of Sant Waryam Singh Ji.

Its bhramgyan-knowledge experiential partakh gyan itself-  thats atam updesh resonated with me from sant jagjit singh harkhowale katha. Awareness of awareness and knowledge of knowledge are two side same coin, pure awareness is substratum -underlining reality of any experience. It can be expereinced in deep meditation, experience is one thing but realization- permanent spontaneous -sehaj samadhi abidance in it is another thing its matter of grace. Maharaj kirpan bakshan.

I agree he is probably referring to the state of Sunn Smaadh. Sant Waryam Singh / Sant Isher Singh ji also refer to similar voids that need to be crossed. I will try and dig out the relevant passages.

This diagram is my attempt in trying to understand the path as described by Bhai Sewa Singh Ji Tharmala via Gurbani and how the mind has to cross these stages. (It still might be wrong but it what I understand at the present time). From the stages of Sunn "Naam/Shabad" pulls you out carries you across.

Journey_of_the_Mind_-_Sewa_Singh_Tharmal

  1. Mind is stuck in thoughts of TreGun Maya (Rajo Gun, Tamo Gun and Sato Gun)
  2. Tregun/Thoughts/1st Bhavsagar is crossed with the aid of the Gur-shabad/Gur-mantar
  3. When trying to exit the Tregun maya one will have to cross the 5 elements (Air, Water, Fire, Earth, Space). 5th, Space is also known as the beginning of Sunn.
  4. One eventually enters Nij Sunn where one has to wait.
  5. Eventually a loud Shabad/Blast manifests. If one can latch onto this blast with their surti then they are carried across into Anhad Sunn (realm of panj shabad). The Sunn stage is a difficult to cross as one call fall back into dreams or hallucinations (2nd BhavSagar).
  6. From Anhad Sunn the sounds eventually merge to form a single tone called Naam/Naad.
  7. With pure clean surti/consciousness attached to this Naam/Naad one eventually merges with Waheguru

Atam updesh which was resonated with me from sant jagjit singh harkhowale katha of abhed upasana- nirgun upasana where seeker considers itself as atma with full unity with paratma - one considers itself as aseem gyan (eternal ocean of divine knowledge(without an thought)- pure awareness) where its each surat-consciousness arises from ocean as wave and subsides back in the ocean to the point there is no distinction. This is from non duality-advait perspective. I believe this framework of naam is just as valid. Its complex topic better to find out experientially.

Absolutely Agree , this is the region of mahashoonya, Or hahoot in sufism.

This region is Described by saints as nothing,empty, Go in any direction and its still nothingness.

Above This region , there is Bhuvar gupha(The region of sohum jaap) and after that starts the region Of Satpurush,Sachkhand. 

Only a Param Sant satguru's grace/guidance can take you above this realm.
