During Guru Purnima in 2010, a woman from the Boston-Connecticut area conducted research in which they recorded the sound Om, entered it into a computer, and discovered that the frequency of Om is precisely the same as the frequency of the earth's rotation around its axis.
During Guru Purnima in 2010, a woman from the Boston-Connecticut area conducted research in which they recorded the sound Om, entered it into a computer, and discovered that the frequency of Om is precisely the same as the frequency of the earth's rotation around its axis. Thus, the earth is chanting Om. It's pretty fascinating.
Om is referred to as one hand clapping sound. Om is the eternal sound; Om is the sound that permeates the cosmos constantly.
When saints from the past entered a deep state of meditation, they only heard Om. Om thus has numerous meanings. It connotes love, eternities, purity, and harmony. Om is composed of the three dhatus ah-ooh-ma. There are 19 different ways to say "ah."
Thousands of interpretations may be derived from Om. Om is the sound of creation and the source of all those meanings. Om is also the beginning of all creation.
The phrase "In the beginning, there was a word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God" is also found in the Bible. Om is that.
They don't specify which word there; Om is the word.
Every religion contains it in some capacity. Ek Omkar Sat Naam is the real name. Om stands for truth. It serves as the moniker for Divinity or infinity. It connotes affection. It is where the cosmos first began. Ek Omkar Sat Naam, Karta Purakh, which means "From Om all has come, in Om, everything resides, and into Om, everything will dissolve," is a lovely phrase from the Guru Granth Sahib.
The fact that it is a whole vibration is the most excellent thing. The bottom half of the body is affected by "Ah," the middle area by "Ooh," and the upper part by "Mm." One syllable, Om, is used to represent all of the pranas. We were a part of that sound before birth, and we will merge with that sound—the sound of the spirit—after death. So, there are many things you may say about Om, and an entire Upanishad, the Mandukya Upanishad, is devoted to the subject.
Now, why don't we use the mantra Om alone? Why do we need to sing any other mantras during meditation? Om is chanted to set the frequency before meditation. However, different mantras are needed during meditation. Om alone is not employed; Hari Om, Om Namah Shivaya, or another mantra is used in addition to Om.
Om chanting is only permitted by recluses, people who desire to do nothing with the world, or people who are very elderly. Only Om is permitted for those with no connection to the outside world. It is still not suggested.
