AUM stands for the holy trinity according to Hinduism, wherein A = Brahma, U = Vishnu, and M = Shiva. AUM depicts the God, collectively as Trimurti (literally indicating three… forms or trinity), while Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva each represent one of the three primary aspects. In the Trimurti system, Brahma is the creator, Vishnu is the maintainer or preserver, and Shiva is the destroyer or transformer. "Aum" is also called "Om" or "Ohm". It is a sacred sound important to various religions. The Christian "amen" is considered equivalent. Aum is a syllable either spoken or sung, often in meditation and mantras, or in association with prayer or other religious ritual. In Indian music, Aum corresponds to the frequencies 136.1 Hz, 204.15 Hz, and 272.2 Hz (sa, pa, and sa of the next octave). These frequencies are found in nature when measuring the energy from the Sun. Exposure to this sound has been shown to restructure water into beautiful crystal forms, seemingly transforming disfigured, damaged water molecules into near perfection. To learn more about Aum, the Sun, and water, see: * http://tinyurl.com/watertgm * http://tinyurl.com/waterc2c * http://tinyurl.com/watercd Aum is said to be the primordial sound that was present at the creation of the universe. It is said to be the original sound that contains all other sounds, all words, all languages and all mantras. In this sense, Aum may be "the word". "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1) This concept of Aum and "the word" creating our universe is supported by the vibrational resonance waveform metaphysical view of the nature of reality. This view is spoken of both in philosophical and scientific contexts. String theory for example suggests that subatomic "strings" oscillate to take on vibrational modes, therein forming matter. In other contexts, the waveform view of reality may be found in ancient teachings such as Hermeticism, which claims to draw its knowledge from ancient Egypt and the messanger god Hermes (also called Thoth). According to the Kybalion, The Principle of Vibration is a major part of the Hermetic Philosophy. To learn more, spend some time searching the Internet.

Om mystically embodies the essence of the entire universe. This meaning is further deepened by the Indian philosophical belief that God first created sound and the universe ar…ose from it. As the most sacred sound, Om is the root of the universe and everything that exists and it continues to hold everything together. The syllable is discussed in a number of the Upanishads, which are the texts of philosophical speculation, and it forms the entire subject matter of one, the Mandukya. AUM is a bow, the arrow is the self, And Brahman (Absolute Reality) is said to be the mark. (Mandukya Upanishad) The essence of all beings is the earth. The essence of the earth is water. The essence of water is the plant. The essence of the plant is man. The essence of man is speech. The essence of speech is the Rigveda. The essence of Rigveda is the Samveda. The essence of Samveda is OM. (Chandogya Upanishad) All those activities which people start with uttering the syllable OM do not fail to bear fruit. (Shankaracharya's Commentary on the Taittriya Upanishad 1.8.1) In the Puranas the syllable Om became associated in various ways with the major Hindu devotional sects. Saivites mark the lingam (a symbol of Shiva) with the symbol for Om, while Vaishnavites identify the three sounds as referring to the trinity of Vishnu, his wife Sri, and the worshiper. Om is spoken at the beginning and the end of Hindu mantras, prayers, and meditations and is frequently used in Buddhist and Jain rituals as well. Om is used in the practice of Yoga and is related to techniques of auditory meditation. From the 6th century, the written symbol of Om was used to mark the beginning of a text in a manuscript or an inscription. Om Parvat, a sacred peak at 6191m in the Indian Himalayas, is revered for its snow deposition pattern that resembles Om. (MORE)
