Om the Magical Mystical Sound
What is Om, you may ask? Om is a word of power – the primordial sound; the sound with which creation was born. All sounds proceed from Om and all sounds return to Om.
Om itself is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. Om has no beginning, no middle and no end. Om is the signature of God.
Om gives strength to the mind, nerves and body. It helps you face problems with poise, clarity and courage. The Yogis say Om widens the consciousness and gives knowledge and power face life.
Om gives purity, joy, contentment and detachment; a magic wand to blow away the clouds of depression, inertia, negative feeling and fear. When you chant Om, you open yourself to a higher Force and Grace that bestows a sense of detachment, building an aura of harmony and positive vibrations.
Om is pure pleasure, it is pure knowledge, it is pure light and it is pure love. Thus all Hindu scriptures recognize Om as the ultimate power or Shakti. Every Mantra in the Vedas begins with and ends in Om. Om is the essence of all mantras, without which, they would not have the power to bestow Divine Grace on oneself. Thus meditation of Om is extremely beneficial to mankind.
How to meditate on Om:
Sit in a comfortable position and still your body movements. Tell your body to be at peace. Be quiet in all parts of your being. Then…Meditate on Om by visualizing Om and think of its benefits…Meditate on the sound of Om…Feel the vibrations of Om…Hear the resonance and echoes of Om…Let us chant Om.
