I loved the latest hollow back post by the amazing @tunaapari. (checkout her page) Also- how she explained the significance of the sound "om"
There is so much to say about "om" in fact there is a whole Upanishad, the Mandukya Upanishad, which is all about Om.
Om is the sound of the universe.
The universe speaks all the time, and the saints in the past who did hear the universe when they went into deep meditation, they just heard Om. Om is love, eternity, purity, peace.
Om is the mother of all other sounds, so when you say "om" it encompasses all the sounds all languages, all words and all the prayers.
All the scriptures the vedas the upanishads and everything else sums up in one om. "एक ओमकार ॐ"
You can derive several thousand meanings from Om. Om is the seed of the whole creation; Om is the existence.
In Bible too, it is said, ‘In the beginning there was a word and the word was with God and the word was God’. They don’t say which word however.
In Sikhism ‘एक ओमकार सतनाम ’ Om means truth. It is the name of the infinity or the Divinity.
I used to listen to the teachings of Guru Granth Sahib; There is a beautiful verse in the Guru Granth Sahib, which begins with ‘Ek Omkar Sat Naam, Karta Purakh’ From Om everything has come, in Om everything dwells, and into Om everything will dissolve.
The best thing is that it's a complete vibration. ‘Ah’ the first syllable - affects the lower part of the body, try it out take a deep breath in and as you exhale take the sound "ah" deep down from the core feel the vibration around the gut. ‘Ooh’ - affects the middle part. Feel the vibrations on the chest as you produce this sound. ‘Mm’ - affects the upper part, with closed mouth it can be felt on the throat.
