OM, also known as AUM, is the sound of cosmic consciousness. When used as a mantra for meditation, it creates a vibration that represents three states of our ordinary consciousness, viz., waking, dream, and deep sleep.
Chanting OM as a mantra can be a very powerful meditation technique.
“OM is not just a sound or vibration. It is not just a symbol. OM is the mysterious cosmic energy that is the substratum of all the things and all the beings of the entire universe. It is an eternal song of the Divine. It is continuously resounding in silence on the background of everything that exists.”
It is believed that chanting of OM creates spiritual light, which manifests around the practitioner like a halo and it also helps us reach higher states of consciousness.
