Anonymous asked: What is so special about Aum? And what is its meaning?
So Aum/Om means God - specifically Brahma, and it represents him. It is the most sacred symbol. syllable or sound even in Hinduism. My personal interpretation of it is that it is peace, love and all things good. I have never been so at peace as I have when chanting “aum”; it washes away all petty affairs in my personal world, all the imperfections in humanity, all my daily hassles, and it temporarily replaces them with peace. It is the music of the world and the universe. It is eternal. It makes the transcendent more…tangible and understandable. It is omnipotent…it can’t really be defined! It is music, powerful, eternal and easily accessible.
Hopefully I have conveyed sufficiently why aum is more than special :)
