A short film about Nabhi and Void

Speech from Shri Mataji

The Void is the space between our current awareness and enlightened awareness, which is blocked when we are still in a state of spiritual ignorance. When cleared, the void facilitates our ‘guru’ principle, whereby we are naturally able to discern what is necessary to keep ourselves in a balanced state.

The Void, or ‘Bhavasagara’, is located within our abdominal cavity and is the center of our self mastery. It contains the Nabhi Chakra in its center, while the Swadisthan Chakra rotates around it thus creating its circumference. As the Nabhi Chakra governs our sense of satisfaction, and the Swadisthana Chakra controls our attention, the gap between them represents how far our attention is from the truth of our existence.

When our attention is caught up in materialistic ideas of money and possessions, or fixated on our family, our work, our achievements or failings, then the Void may become blocked. On the other hand, when we clear our Void we are able to guide ourselves and others with a clear awareness of reality.

“but the most important thing about Void is that that once you are enlightened, you become dharmic yourself. The Dharma starts flowing through your hand. These vibrations have a capacity to establish Dharma.”
