Further ascension of the soul is aided by the Sound Current which is resounding with different melodies, particularly that of the Double-Flute. Lifted and literally carried by these enticing tunes, one is led to the Hansni Tunnel, the secret pathway to the next spiritual realm Bhanwar Gupha. Once the soul has been fully contacted with the Audible Life Stream it ma realize why the great mystic Swedenborg likened the music played by the most renowned symphony orchestra to that of barking dogs. Emerging from the tunnel one beholds the sight of xxxxxx
out of which the flute like musical Holy Naam seems to pour forth in full God Power. An unbroken peace prevails, a peace never met with on this earth. The entire region is governed by Love, goodness, purity. Far ahead lie bright luminous lakes and rivers. One can clearly see thousands of islands and great stretches of land dotted with immaculate palaces that are decorated with innumerable pearls, diamonds, rubies. Imperial residences are surrounded by beautiful flower gardens and orchards.
Ones attention is then drawn to the hill of Bhanwar Gupha the fourth spiritual plane. Soon a confrontation of a whirling cave appears. Still, the soul is urged to move on by the Great Master who now shows us the hidden pathway that leads to Sach Khand (Sat Lok) the eternal True Home of the soul. We are instructed to proceed to the whirling cave. Upon entering we are surrounded by complete darkness. Here the intensely brilliant fingernails and toenails of our Beloved Master or Sat Guru are the helping factors that guide us through. As we are confronted with another Crooked Tunnel the obstacles encountered by the soul spiritual ascension are numerous and seemingly unending. However, ultimately a huge Christmas-Like Tree, adorned with thousands of burning candles and other lights, meets the inner eye of the devotee. The bewitching Sohang Melody is of life. Sohang means I am that which Thou Art.
Gazing at the tree, one is drawn to it by the magnetic pull of the Bagpipe melody, as a voice from Sach Khand. It may happen that the Great One suddenly vanishes from the side of the initiate, but this is just to test the faith of the disciple. For a moment one may feel helplessly alone. However, the enchanting sweet sound of Bagpipes are ever reverberating around the initiate at this stage. In a flash the soul remembers that his master is actually the Word or Naam personified. As this realization dawns upon the soul a magnificent Being of Great Light promptly appears. The disciple falls at His Holy Lotus Feet in great fear of the Lord of Lords whose abode is the Fifth Region from whence He, together with the Living Master of our time, directs and controls the affairs of the worlds below.
As told by a man with a 6th grade education who supported himself by working as a waiter all of his adult life. Emil is now in his 90s.
