WHAT DOES AUM MEAN TO US?

Om or Aum (Oṃ, ॐ , ओ३म्) is a sacred sound and a spiritual symbol in India. It signifies the essence of the ultimate reality, consciousness or soul. More broadly, it is a syllable that is chanted either independently or before a spiritual recitation in HinduismBuddhism, and Jainism.

 

In Hinduism, Om is one of the most important spiritual symbols. It refers to Atman (soul, self within) and Brahman (ultimate reality, entirety of the universe, truth, divine, supreme spirit, cosmic principles, knowledge). The syllable is often found at the beginning and the end of chapters in ancient scriptures such as the Vedas and the Upanishads.

AUM or OM is frequently chanted during meditation and Yoga.
