Om and its_significance

  1. 1. Om or Aum is a sacred sound of a spiritual symbol in Indian religions. It signifies the essence of the ultimate reality, consciousness or Atman. It is a syllable that is chanted either independently or before a spiritual recitation in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. The meaning and connotations of Om vary between the diverse schools within and across the various traditions. It is also part of the iconography found in ancient and medieval era manuscripts, temples, monasteries and spiritual retreats in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism And Arya Samaj The syllable Aum is also referred to as onkara (ओङ्कार, oṅkāra), omkar a (ओंकार, oṃkāra) and pranav (प्रणव, praṇava). INTRODUCTION OF AUM… •According to the Big Bang theory, Aum is the cosmic sound that initiated the creation of the universe.
  2. 2. •This sacred syllable is not just one sound, it is actually three. The ‘Pranava’ (power) mantra comprises three syllables: ‘a’, ‘u’, ’m’, indicating the continuity of past, present and future. The Aum sound encompasses the masculine, feminine and neutral principles. It also addresses speech (‘vak’), mind (‘manas’) and breath (‘prana’) and alludes to the famous trinity of Indian cosmology, the creator (Brahma), the maintainer (Vishnu) and the destroyer (Shiva). PHILOSOPHY OF AUM..
  3. 3. When anyone starts yoga, they start by chanting ‘Om’ three times. Some feel at ease straight away, while others might feel self- conscious or wonder why chant a word in Sanskrit without knowing what it means. Sometimes that first Om is strained, not harmonious, only to become a smooth and pleasant sound by the third repetition. •In yoga philosophy, Om is considered a sacred syllable. The Sanskrit word ‘Om’ means ‘all’ and conveys concepts of ‘Omnipresence’ Om is a sacred ‘mantra’. It is considered a universal sound, the seed of all words without reference to any specific religion or god. AUM AND YOGA PHILOSOPHY… Yoga Sutra The aphoristic verse 1.27 of Pantanjali's Yogasutra links Om to Yoga practice, as follows, तस्य वाचकः प्रणवः ॥२७॥ His word is Om. — Yogasutra 1.27,
  4. 4. •By chanting Aum at the beginning of Yoga practice, the divinity within each of us is addressed, invited and called in. When we perceive the sound of our own voice, we notice our own presence. Through sound, an invisible yet physical expression, we are closer to perceiving our true self and our true nature. We are never separate from sound; even if we can’t speak or hear we feel its physical vibration throughout our bodies. •At the point of chanting Aum, there is no thought, no separation. Regular practice enhances a sense of centeredness. It is also said that while chanting Aum, the syllable is the target and our attention becomes focused on one point (‘Ekagrata’).Chanting gives us a clear sense of direction and focus. It is the beginning of the inward journey. …Aum and Yoga Philosophy
  5. 5. The significance of the sacred syllable in the Hindu traditions, is similarly highlighted in other verses of the Gita, such as verse 17.24 where the importance of Om during prayers, charity and meditative practices is explained as follows, तस्मादोममत्युदाहृत्य यज्ञदानतपःक्रियाः। प्रवततन्ते ववधानोकताः सततं ब्रह्मवाददनाम्। ।17.24।। Therefore, uttering Om, the acts of yagna (fire ritual), dāna(charity) and tapas (austerity) as enjoined in the scriptures, are always begun by those who study the Brahman. — Bhagavad Gita 17.24, Bhagavad Gita The Bhagavad Gita, in the Epic Mahabharata mentions the meaning and significance of Om in several verses. According to verse 9.17 of the Bhagavad Gita synthesizes the competing dualistic and monist streams of thought in Hinduism, by using "Om which is the symbol for the indescribable, impersonal Brahman". वपताऽहमस्य जगतो माता धाता वपतामहः। वेद्यं पववत्रमोंकार ऋक् साम यजुरेव च।।9.17।। I am the Father of this world, Mother, Ordainer, Grandfather, the Thing to be known, the Purifier, the syllable Om, Rik, Saman and also Yajus. — Krishna to Arjuna Bhagavad Gita 9.17, AUM and reference to Bhagwad Gita….
  6. 6. Om is also known as Pranava, is the source of creation Pranava, Om, Omkara, ekasharam, is the source and controller of life as we know it and therefore, is also known as the source of Divine or the Divinity itself What is your definition of God? Different people have different believes as to the shape , sound and name of God, but all of them have single founding principle. What is generally referred to as God is that which is source of creation So there is something which is created and the creator is within the created. This is the beauty of all of it. All of creation is some stage of creation, maintenance or destruction, all happening from within. Now this means, the source of creation is within every single thing that is created AUM : SOURCE OF CREATIVITY…
  7. 7. While all of this seem very puzzling at first, there is a tremendous possibility here. The possibility of accessing the source of the creation within. Accessing divinity within. Becoming divine. We know that the most obvious signal of life within the body is the breath. The Sanskrit name for this is prana-vayu. Prana can be roughly translated, as life The source of life Prana is Pranava. The life force manifests itself, as the aspects of creation, maintenance and destruction within the human body. The sounds attached with these are aa, uu, and mmm It is a perfect combination of A, uu and MM in devnagari script. Some say these are sounds of brahma, Vishnu and maheshwara. AUM – Inner peace and …
  8. 8. Many cultures have tried to express OM in their own terminology .They had their own ways, laid down by masters which mastered this capability of accessing divinity within. AUM as found in Indian Culture This same sound is what is being chanted as aameen in islam, and Amen in Christianity. So if there are many versions of this sound what makes the Sanskrit way of pronouncing it right? It is because of the significance of what happened in the land protected between the Himalyas and the Indian Ocean. It is the number of masters this protected culture produced. We had so many people who became fully capable of accessing the divinity within. We created language, art, dance, music, math and medicine all of it focused on one thing. Enhancing the human capability of turning inward and accessing divinity within. This is why Sanskrit holds such a treasure of invaluable information
