Powerful Meditation Chant
OM is a Sanskrit syllable that appears at the beginning and end of most Hindu recitations, prayers, and scriptures. OM is the most powerful Hindu mantra and is considered to provide a short path to Self-realization. The proper chanting of OM creates a direct connection between you and the Ultimate Spiritual Reality (God). The Yoga Sutras claim that in addition to meditation the chanting of OM can be used to attain Self-realization.
OM is believed to be the vibration of God in the Universe. The OM vibration exists within you and by chanting it you create a resonant frequency between yourself and the universal OM. According to the Yoga Sutras chanting OM turns your awareness inward and removes obstacles that prevent you from reaching Self-realization (Ch. 1-29). In addition, the Yoga Sutras state that chanting OM will give you access to spiritual knowledge (Ch. 1-25, 1-26).
“When we chant Om, we… create within ourselves a sympathetic vibration, a vibration which has a sympathy with the cosmic vibration, so that, for the time being, we are in tune with the cosmos. We flow with the current of the cosmos when we recite Om, and produce a harmonious vibration in our bodily and psychological system.” (Swami Krishnananda, 2016)
While it is conventionally spelled O-M, the sacred syllable is actually pronounced A-U-M. Each of these three letters or tones has a particular meaning, which corresponds to sections of the Sanskrit symbol of OM. ‘A’ represents the physical world of waking consciousness. The ‘U’ corresponds to the subtle world of thought, imagination, and dreams. ‘M’ symbolizes deep dreamless sleep.
The Mandukya Upanishad is entirely devoted to explaining OM. The Mandukya is generally acknowledged as the most important Upanishad and is believed to contain all that is needed to attain Self-realization (Krishnananda, 2016).
