Bhava refers to a state of being or feeling, a vibe. While we may desire “good vibes only,” sometimes life throws us curve balls that we can’t control. What we can control is how we respond to the unexpected. In this practice, cultivate the ability to work skillfully with whatever arises. Sometimes we must be heroic (vira), other times we must be tranquil (shanti) and sometimes we need that artful balance between the two (sringara).
