Greetings

“Om is not just a sound or vibration. It is not just a symbol. It is the entire cosmos, whatever we can see, touch, hear and feel. Moreover, it is all that is within our perception and all that is beyond our perception. It is the core of our very existence… It is an eternal song of the Divine. It is continuously resounding in silence on the background of everything that exists.

 - Amit Ray

You, I, all living beings, our planet, universe, everything without exception vibrates. The vibration that came into being at the creation of the universe and that continues to vibrate throughout is Om. Om, is the primal energy; the sound of the universe itself; it is the basic sound that contains all sound; it is all possibilities; it is everything that was, is and yet to be;  it is creation, preservation and destruction; it is the most essential way to express God.  

Om,  as a sacred sound is pronounced “AUM.” The chanting of AUM and the symbol OM represent four states of consciousness. The first, “A,’ is regarded as the primal sound and resonates in the middle of the mouth. This sound includes and is included in every sound produced by the human vocal cords. It is the lower largest curve of the symbol and represents our gross waking state (i.e. actions, speech and thoughts).
   The second, “U,”  resonates at the back of the mouth  and represents the more subtle, unconscious dream state. The “U” is central curve and this is where the mind works out its unfulfilled desires and aversions. The third, “M,” the upper curve, is a humming that resonates forward in the mouth and  buzzes throughout the head. It represents our subconscious deep sleep state and contains the root of our emotional and behavioral patterns.  It is where pure consciousness exists, this is where our inherent supreme knowledge or “pranja” lies.
   The forth state of consciousness is represented by the silence at the end of Om, which is most clear when the humming of “M” fade away. It is awareness itself, union with the divine and is symbolized by the dot above the arch. The arch symbolizes “maya” or the illusion that keeps us from realizing the highest state of bliss of unity with the divine. Since the arch is open and does not touch the dot, the highest state is never effected by illusion.
   All together, Om represents all that is manifest and unmanifest. It is without beginning or end, embracing all that exists and referred to as “pranava,” that which is constantly renewing! Every time you chant Om you are renewed, you are re-aligned, reminded of your inherent divinity and the ultimate truth that we are all one.
   The Yoga Sutras by Patanjali remind us to always repeat and meditate upon the sound of Om. Chanting Om purifies the mind, body and the environment. Chanting Om dispels darkness, fear, desires, delusion and attachments.
   Sound is the foundation of form and every form is affected by sound, the sounds we utter affect all that surrounds us. Om, the sound of the universe, the vibration of the divine, is healing to all that hear and feel it.
We wish you and yours peace and health.

Om shanti,

Living Yoga Staff
