Please shed some light on "OM"
« on: July 10, 2007, 08:42:32 PM »
Jai Sai Master, Babu garu..
Jai Sai Master, Sai Bandhus..

Today when I was meditating, I got this question in my mind.

"OM" is an integral and very important part of every mantra in Hinduism.

I request Sri Babu garu and Sai Bandhus to shed some knowledge on this.

1) What is the meaning of "OM" ( in my teenage years, I saw a poster which said some like this....OM has several meanings. One of them is "Welcome to the Abode of God" ) ??

2) Why do we (and why do we need to) add OM to the already powerful mantras?

Thank you and Regards to all,

Jai Sai Master!

Dear Ananth,

I shall write about this soon..

Everyone else, please join in and reply about OM if you would like. Discussion is a prime way of improving oneself.

Jai Sai Master.

Some basics
http://www.omsakthi.org/worship/mantra.html

In Saileelamrutham, Baba showing OM in his hand, which later turns into the universe in the shape of OM also may be indicating the origin and existence of the Universe, something like what is said in the above article.

Jai Sai Master.
