False belief e.g. superstitions or religious beliefs that are believed sincerely but actually do not lead to God realisation. Along with the poison of Maya’s Rajo and Tamo aspects, there is another major road block in our spiritual progress and that negative force is called Bharam. Bharam means the doubts, illusions and delusions that our mind is filled with. As long as our mind is influenced by these doubts, illusions and delusions we cannot progress in our spirituality. These doubts, illusions and delusions give birth to Dubidha – duality.
Bharams give birth to negative questions in our mind. Questions about the validity of Gur Mat and the Gur and Guru. Living in Bharams means the mind starts to question what our Puran Sant is telling us to do. The mind questions the divine words of our Puran Sant Puran Brahm Gyani. All of these negative thoughts lead us further into the wilderness of Bharams, illusions and delusions until we become completely lost. These lost ones don’t believe that GurBani is the Eternal Truth. They question the validity of what is written in GurBani and remain far from the divine truth.
However, as soon as our Bharams, illusions and delusions are washed away we come out of duality and all of our questions are answered from within and our mind goes into complete peace. The end of Bharams, illusions, delusions and Dubidha is achieved by GurParsaad. With this Gurparsad our own wisdom – Munn Mat, Sansarik Mat and Dur Mat is replaced by Gur Mat.
The source of Gur Mat is the SatGur. When we dedicate and surrender completely at the Sat Charan Sharan of the SatGur then we achieve this GurParsaad. The end of Bharams, illusions, delusions and Dubidha from our mind is a very good sign and paves our way to Divinity. Our spiritual progress goes onto the fast track and all of our mental sicknesses – Panj Doots and desires, are washed away. All of our sins are washed away and our soul becomes weightless. Our soul is relieved of the weight of our past Karams. Past sins. Our past Asat Ki Karni. Our poison that we have been drinking for ages under the influence of Panj Doots and Trishna is replaced with Amrit. All of the shackles of Maya, Maya Key Bandhan, are broken and we are freed. Our soul is freed from the cycle of death and birth. This freedom from the shackles of Maya is called Jivan Mukti.
