The Science Behind OM Mantra

Published: Monday March 04, 2019 14:56

Om is a mantra, or vibration, that is traditionally chanted during any Hindu Ritual. Originated from the Hindu scriptures, the mantra is considered to have high spiritual and creative power but despite this, it is a mantra that can be recited by anyone. It’s both a sound and a symbol rich in meaning and depth and when pronounced correctly it is actually AUM. 

The syllable is also referred to as omkara (ओंकार, oṃkāra), aumkara (औंकार, auṃkāra), and pranava (प्रणव, praṇava). One of the most popular misconception about “OM” is that it is religious. On the contrary, it is the most universal syllable because it neither refers to any particular religion nor God. The ancient Indians arrived at this tone through meditation, it was given to them intuitively and contemplatively by “opening up to the cosmos”.
