What is Bhav? In an attempt to yet again describe something that’s beyond words, the most convenient definition for Bhav is, “a serene feeling” or a “blissful state of being,” but there’s so much more to it. After yesterday’s post about Bhakti Yoga (yoga of devotionI was dancing around in my head trying to think of how to describe the Bhav when I found a great piece by Glynnis Osher on MyYogaOnline, about the Divine Bhav.
Any practice that brings you joy and feels light and uplifting is the Holy Grail for your daily peace of mind. As a yogi the most important tool is the attitude with which you approach the practice and not the practice itself that promises a consistent positive experience. There is a well known Zen Buddhist saying which in it’s profound simplicity holds the key to a life of true happiness, “Before enlightenment chop wood carry water, after enlightenment, chop wood carry water.”
