My Bhava Spandana Program Experience [May19-22,2011]


BSP Experience 
“Bhava Spandana is like making a person jump and look beyond the wall. He sees beyond his limitation experientially. Once he sees that, he knows that he must go over the wall one day to see what is on the other side.” -SADHGURU


First of all, what is Bhava Spandana? Bhava Spandana Program(BSP)  is a four-day, three-night residential program offered to those who have completed the one of the introductory programs - Inner Engineering, Isha Yoga (Tamil) or Wholeness. This advanced meditation program is designed by Sadhguru to provide the opportunity to experience higher levels of consciousness beyond the limitations of body and mind. BSP offers the experience of a world of limitless love and joy.

The BSP for me started on Buddha Poornima , when many volunteers including some of the participants started driving in to the center
On the next day, May 17, rest of the participants and volunteers were arriving in big numbers. The whole ashram became very alive, all of a sudden it started to feel like a busy town square. Everybody excited, moving up and down, finding their room, trying to settle down; I just love that atmosphere! Nearly 300 participants and almost 200 volunteers was the final number. The same day, first session with participants started. While Sadhguru was giving an intro talk, this was a time for the volunteers to meet and go through the schedule. Assignments for the activities were given after a inspiring speech by one of the yoga teachers. From that point on, all the volunteers were clear about what's going to happen in next 3 days is minimum sleep, minimum time to eat, and all the focus will be on making this program the most beautiful experience for all the participants. It  was amazing to see the way things were happening, I'm lacking words. 3 days of just giving one's self totally,  and still what I saw was bright and shiny people full of energy with big smile on their face....this you don't get to see anywhere else!

For the participants this is a life transforming weekend. Everyone of them is leaving with deep sense of oneness and love. It's so tangible. I will never forget my own BSP program, my life is not the same. Imagine your self becoming at least 5 years younger over one weekend, in therms of energy, the way your body feels, the way your emotions are. Every sensation I was experiencing with such a awareness and intensity-every breath is a reason for a celebration. I truly wish  that everyone should be touched by this grace, or divine, or god or universal energy, call it whatever you want, but everyone should experience it!
