Bhanwar Gupha, the Whirling Cave Vortex, Tunnel to the Fifth Heaven


"The shabd currents in Bhanwar Gupha are so sweet and enchanting, according to the Saints, that souls live entirely off its invigorating nectar, desiring nothing but darshan [vision] of the presiding lord and the manifestations of Light and Sound. Kabir, the most famous of the medieval saints, describes in his writings (or, at least, those attributed to his pen) how hansas (pure spirits) live on spiritual dweeps (islands) with magnificent palaces for transmundane enjoyment. Faqir Chand, in his Yogic Philosophy of the Saints, gives a more psychological interpretation of the meditator's experiences in the fourth region: 'When in the course of meditation man reaches this state of Bhanwar-Gupha he experiences that there was none except his own self. This centre is compared with Bhanwar which means whirl. At this centre a wheel rotates like a cradle. It means that at this centre a wave springs out of the surat of the meditator and again merges in its own source, or say, it rotates around its own source and produces the sound of Sohang-Flute. The Shabd of this centre is so effective that the meditator enjoys the pleasure of being one with the Supreme Soul.'" (Enchanted Land)


Swan-Soul, Heavenly Bird (Hamsa) - Mystic Poem of Kabir: 

Tell me, O Swan, your ancient tale.

From what land do you come,

O Swan? to what shore will you fly?

Where would you take your rest,

O Swan, and what do you seek?

Even this morning, O Swan, awake, arise, follow me!

There is a land where no doubt nor sorrow have rule:

where the terror of Death is no more.

There the woods of spring are a-bloom,

and the fragrant scent “He is I” [I Am That, Ana-HU, Soham] is borne on the wind:

There the bee of the heart is deeply immersed,

and desires no other joy.

(Kabir, version by Robert Bly)


In Divine Love, Light and Sound, Peace Be To You,
