is the principal Divine Sound. It is Supreme source of music. All the musical notes of Nature are interwoven in it. The chirping of birds sitting on the trees, the peaceful atmosphere of high mountain peaks, the melodious sound of waterfalls, the whistling sound of winds blowing past the trees, the roaring sound of ocean waves, the thundering sound of clouds the essence of all these is hidden in Om.
Om is the seed of alphabets / words / syllables. All the words emerge from it and all of them get merged into it. Not only Vedas but also the Bible and other scriptures are the manifestations of Om. Gita and Gayatri
too have emerged out of it. That is why Vedas say "One who has realized the essence of Om, nothing remains to be realized by him." Bible too repeats the same truth
when it says: "In the beginning was the word; and the word was with God; and the word was God". Everything in this universe has been created by that primordial Sound.
Om is the seed of this wonderful creation. It is the Supreme source of all kinds of energies. All the currents of energies responsible for sustaining and maintaining this vast universe originate from Om. That is why Upnishads say that everything in this world has emerged out of Om
and everything will merge back in Om. All the mysteries from the subtlest to the most gigantic are hidden in this Om.
Om is the Supreme symbol for meditation. All the mysteries are unraveled by meditating on Om
and the imprisoned splendors within ourselves get released. Om
is hidden within everyone but it is veiled by our ego-centered ignorance. As soon as imprisoned splendor of Om
is liberated, all suffering gets transformed into bliss. This liberation is possible through meditation. It is through meditation and Gayatri Sadhana
that the seed of Om
is nurtured, sprouts up and grows into the tree of self-awakening. Then it no longer remains the subject of scriptural discussion but a concrete undeniable experience.
