The Home inside (Nijh ghar )
Own home inside living is obtained as one is absorbed in the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. (Meaning: through Simran)
In Gurbani the resting place when Simran takes you inside is called Nijh ghar .
While beginning Simran Guru Sahibji advices one to
i) listen to the Simran inside
ii) to do Simran with each breath while sitting, standing, lying ,walking ,eating and while doing your daily chores.
Simran then takes you inside through a natural gentle subtle automatic pull and places your focus point inside the head. The point is approximately between the two ears, slightly lower , at a point inside where the breath strikes on the mouth cavity. As it is a point in our subtle body its exact physical body part cannot be specified.
This Nijh ghar is the place where we have to keep our attention and operate in the physical world with conscious awareness. While at this point that we can feel HIS presence simply by ‘feeling’ and ‘knowing’. We can also observe HIS presence in the outside Physical world simply by ‘feeling’ and ‘knowing’.
In the Nijh ghar we can hear the SHABAD going on inside, just attempt to hear in a quiet place where sensory input is less you will start to hear it. As one progresses full bloom Anhad Shabad is heard.
(This comment has been added Later : The Nijh Ghar refered above is the one at the physical level , the shabad pulls the surt afterward and the individual reaches the Nijh Ghar in the Ekha (One) of Ek Ongkar where the Two earlier are now One )

I am a sacrifice to them, who make ego die to recognize their Divine origin.
( when in Simran we feel that WE are actually HIM ,HE is seeing , hearing ,talking , walking , eating as has been told by Guru Sahibji at no places in Gurbani then we are making the ego die as it is no longer operating)
