OM: The divine sound energy behind the totality of existence and consciousness


By Gaurav Sharma

Ancient spiritual traditions believe the mystical sound OM to be the primeval sound that existed before the manifestation of creation.

From philosophical texts such as Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita, epics such as Mahabharata to the Yoga sutras of Patanjali and historical Puranas, all mention the supreme spiritual significance of OM.

Esoteric Buddhist practitioners consider OM as the bija mantra or seed syllable–placing it before the incantation of chants such as Om Mani Padme Hum–the mantra invoking the compassion of all Buddhas.

The Sikh syllable Ik Onkar, meaning God is one, has deep historical relationship with Omkar or OM as the formless, quality less and all-pervading metaphysical reality called Brahman.

The essence of life that ancient seers deciphered long ago in the form of OM is only now being discovered by scientists.

Science of Sound

In the spiritual dimension, the physical is a manifestation of vibrations, of which OM forms the primordial sound.

Therefore, each physical entity is merely sound with a corresponding geometric formation attached to it. The physical form of an entity can be transfigured by altering the intensity and the type of sound energy that it is subjected to.

For example, negative emotion which affects the physical well being of an individual in the form of anger and anxiety is nothing but denser, heavier sound energy. On the other hand, positive emotions of joy which manifest in the form of happiness are a higher, lighter state of vibration.

Experimental Evidence

Vibration is not just an experiential metaphysical concept but an actual science known by the name of Cymatics.

Placing sand in a metal plate called Tonoscope and subjecting them to a sound frequency, one can see the particles arrange themselves in a certain pattern, related to the particular structure of that sound.

When welted with the sound energy of OM, the sand particles metamorphose into a beautiful pattern of mandalas or circles, squares and eventually into oval form.

Orbitary, Afterlife Relation

The oval formation of the sand particles is in stark resemblance with the elliptical orbits of the planets revolving in the cosmos.

Contrary to popular notions of circular revolution, all planets revolve around the sun in elliptical orbits. The sun and stars in turn pirouette around the galaxy in similar orbits.

The elliptical orbits are thus an exact replica of the geometric structure of OM.

Apart from the astounding similarity with the galactic mode of being, a number of people, including Dr Eben Alexander, a Harvard-trained brain neurosurgeon claim to have been touched by the resonation of OM during their near death experiences.

Does OM, the sacred syllable hold the key to opening up the mystery of the cosmos? All the experiential, visual and perceptual evidence are unambiguous in their affirmation.
