Om is the eternal hum of all that exists. The past, the present, and the future, as well as other time-space continuums, create and encompass this one sound. It is represented by three Sanskrit letters, aa, au, and ma, which, when combined together, make the sound Aum or Om. Om is not a word but an intonation which, like music, transcends the barriers of age, culture, race, and species.
The simple but deeply philosophical Om inspires peace, harmony, and bliss. It is believed to be the basic sound of the world, and it contains all other sounds. Om is a mantra or prayer in itself. If repeated with the correct intonation, it can resonate throughout the body so that the sound penetrates to the centre of one's being, the atman or the soul.
Om provides a dualistic viewpoint. On one hand, it projects the mind beyond the immediate to what is abstract and inexpressible. On the other hand, it makes the absolute more tangible and comprehensive. It encompasses all potentialities and possibilities; it is everything that was, is, or can yet be. It is omnipotent and likewise remains undefined.
