Uses of OM
This Sanskrit symbol is regarded as the root of all human sounds; it is considered as containing all the powers of the universe. It also represents many threes including the present, future and past, the three stages of our existence – birth, life and death, the three divine powers – creation, preservation and transformation, the three essences in one spirit – immortality, omniscience and joy, the three worlds of subtle, physical and casual and many other sets of three.
Om is used in the beginning of mantras and chants like at the beginning and end of yoga exercises, or the Buddhist’s ‘Om Mani Padmi, Hum’. It is also used in the beginning and end of prayers and chants like in the Vedic prayers that end with ‘Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti’. While some use the Om sound for meditation, it is purported to have calming effects when chanted. It also helps in focusing the mind.The symbol is enshrined in every Hindu temple, used in many documents and head of letters.
Om (Hum) became the sacred word of the Tibetans, and according to some school of thought, the Amen of Christians, Egyptians, Jews, and Romans, and the Amin of the Moslems. The symbol has transmuted into various languages, religions, traditions and cultures with slightly different representations and spellings, but basically same undertone.
The Om symbol has permeated the entire universe, from Tibetan to China, from Cambodia to America. Wherever you find Yoga, Hindu, Buddha, Jains and other religions and cultures that use Om, there will you find Om.
