IntroductionBhava means 'Sensation' and Spandana closely means 'resonance'. The target of Bhava Spandana program is to transcend the body and individuality of mind and experience the resonance with the existence. In this way, this program tries to make a person experience the higher level of consciousness. This experience is made to realize with powerful circle of energy which gets created with the set of meditation techniques and processes under Bhava Spandana Program. In the words of Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev:
Bhava Spandana is a boosting experience in the same direction(direction of transcending body). We can allow people to experience that in a powerful way, which sets the basis for that they are seeking further. 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 other side. You have lived within the limitations of human senses. Bhava Spandana is a like giving you a lift so you can have a peep at life beyond the limitations of your five sense perceptions.
