Power of OM : Why should we chant OM?

Posted on Updated on

The entire universe is composed of vibrations which produce audible and inaudible sounds, which are experienced by living beings. ‘Shabda Brahmane-nishnata parambrahmadi gachhati’ means the primordial sound which is the base of our creation and source of everything. As one gets immersed in the Shabda Brahman i.e. OM, he enters in to the Parabrahman (all-pervading one-consciousness) automatically. So OM is the prime subject around which the entire creation revolves, it is the permanent truth within which everything exists.

The word OM or often spelled as ‘AUM’ is a three letter word composed of A, U and M; each letter symbolising different state of time.

  • A-Waking state
  • U– Dream state
  • M-Deep sleep of consciousness

As we chant AUM we connect with our true self by which we ultimately connect with the Supreme power. As in the sixth verse of Bhagvad Gita, Lord Krishna says “Etad-yonini bhutani sarvanitya upadharaya. Aham krtsnasya jagatah prabhavah pralayas thata”. He says that the entire creation is born out of me and it resides in me, and dissolves back into me. Chanting the eternal mantra OM results in the production of a vibration that resemble the original vibration, produced at the time of creation. The sound AUM, when chanted, vibrates at the frequency of 432 Hz, which is the same vibrational frequency found throughout everything in nature. Relevance of this word is not only mentioned in Vedas but also in holy Bible, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.
