14. What is Bhav-sagar ?

There was a question asked by one of the folks about what is BHAVSAGAR [TERRIBLE-OCEAN]?


Whenever we face a question or a problem we should always pray for the Gur Parsaad.  In fact we should be always praying for the Gur Parsaad:


“Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmesar,
Kirpa Karo Kirpa Karo Kirpa Karo Deen Key Datey.”


So let us do it once again with folded hands and with Kottan Kot Dandaut and Kottan Kot Shukrana to Dhan Dhan Guru and Dhan Dhan Agam Agochar Anant Beyant Aprampar Suaami Paar Braham Parmesar,  “Kirpa Karo Kirpa karo Kirpa Karo Deen Key Datey; please give us the Gur Parsaad to give us a deep dive in to the true eternal meaning of the Shabad Bhavsagar."


Praying with utmost humbleness and with complete trust and faith, devotion and love, commitment and belief, with complete surrender brings in tremendous rewards in terms of the priceless diamonds and jewels of the Braham Gyan and our Amrit keeps on enhancing with the carving of these Gyan Key Moti.


Let us look at the deep divine meaning of this very important Shabad "Bhavsagar":  The simplest meaning of the Shabad "Bhavsagar" as it comes to this slave of the slaves, slave of you all, the slave of the entire creation is that is  "Maya".


Maya is the Bhavsagar [terrible ocean], whatever is visible with your naked eye is the Bhavsagar.  The Panj Doots – Kaam Krodh Lobh Moh Ahankaar, Asa Trishna Mansha Roop Rus Gandh Raaj Joban Dhan Maal, Shabad Sparsh and even the Sato attributes of Maya-Daya Dharam Daan Sanjam come under the perview of the Bhavsagar. 


In a nutshell anything that is beyond the three qualities of the Maya – “Trihu Gun Tey Parey” is not Bhavsagar and everything else is the "Bhavsagar".


Your selfish attachment with the family is the Bhavsagar, the family itself is a Bhavsagar, the entire society, the entire world is a Bhavsagar, anything that is operated under the influence of Maya is a part of the Bhavsagar.
