AUM – A sound meditation

The sound AUM represents the Silent sound… Many chant this, aspiring to reach a state of tranquility… to simply be that sound….


In another dimension, it also represents that which is continuously created (through the sound “A”) to that which is continuously destroyed( through the sound “M”)

Symbolically “AUM” in the manifested realm are attributed human characteristics of

Bramha – The “Creator” represented by the “A

Vishnu – The “Witness”, represented by “U

Shiva – The “All Absorbing”, represented by “M“. (Some call him the destroyer)

The sound created through “A” is eventually absorbed/ends in “M

The wave that rises(birth) is simply in preparation for the fall(end)

Between Birth(A) and Death(M), between the inhalation and exhalation, there is a “Witness”, who lays dormant…

Many Manifestations, Many Forms come and go, but the witness remains(U)…. across manifestations, across forms,across lives.

Hidden between “forms” is the “formless” energy….

Meditation is the art of remembering, the art of rediscovering this formless…

A dreamer, who from a window seat of a rail bogey, enjoys staring at the infinite plain lands, re-living images captured by the eyes, amused by a dogs yawn and its trot.. moved by a cows gaze and fascinated by the trail of army ants kissing each other to glory... I am not sure if slow n steady wins the race.. there is no race if you ask me....but certainly slow and steady has its own grace...
