Aum


 Aum is the vibrational sound of the cosmic machine of creation and destruction.

Aum is the name of God in its unmanifested form.

Aum comprises all manifested and unmanifested worlds.

Aum means nothing and it also means everything.

Aum is the most mysterious word in the Universe. Aum is thought to be the eternal sound.

Aum consists of three sounds A...U....M.

A - Signifies the beginning of the universe,

U - Signifies the life period of universe and

M - Signifies the destruction of the Universe.

Hence AUM is the only word which represents the three main work of God:

Creation (Brahma), Operation (Vishnu) and Destruction (Shiv) of the Universe (Srishti).

Most of the mantras in Hinduism start with the word AUM,

because AUM is pure consciousness while other words in a mantra are Nature (Prakriti).

AUM in itself is a complete Mantra; its chanting is sacred and brings enlightenment. It is the Maha Mantra.

It does not belong to any language; it is the primodal vibration of the consciousness which created the universe.

AUM has four steps: A...U....M and the last one silent

A = Physical plane , wake state of mind, Beginning, Brahma,

U = Astral Plane, dream state of mind, Manifestation,Vishnu,

M = Causal Plane, dream-less state, Destruction, Rudra.

Fourth unspoken sound = Turiya is beyond the universe, the Enlightened State.

AUM is a Sagun Mantra, Nirgun Mantra and Beeja Mantra ALL IN ONE.

Recitation of Aum brings peace and happiness and finally Enlightenment.
