meaning of AUM

By Swami Yog Subodh – School of Nada School

The meaning of AUM :

OM or AUM is mixture of sounds or vibraton. It is defined as a sacred sound of the Universe. It is the first sound of the creation. ‘A’ stands for Birth, ‘U’ stands for Living and ‘M’ stands for Death or Rebirth. AUM is the union, atom is the union of Electron, Proton and Neutron. AUM in a sanskrit is called as ‘Anaahat Naad’ that means a sound which is continuously produced without hitting the two. This is also known as soundless sound, which is called ‘Pranava’

When we chant AUM or OM means we are trying to tune up individual consciousness with supreme consciousness. Chanting Om is matching individual frequency with the supreme frequency. Once you become silent both body and mind , then you start hearing the sound of consciousness, which nothing but the bliss.

Yoga declares that onced you realize OM , it will remove all sufferings of life. Yoga declares the truth only after the experience. Yoga says that once you master AUM or Om You are libereted.

Omkaaram Pray:

“Omkaaram Bindu Samyuktam, Nityam Dhyaanti Yoginah; Kaamadam Mokshadam chaiva, Omkaaraaya Namo Namah!!

Meaning: The symbol of AUM, united at a point on which Yogis meditate everyday, it fullfils the desires and liberation, so we bow to that AUM.
