      Dear Shivaji,
      Requesting to Kindly search the vedio clip on sadguru on aum chanting on you tube for better details on exactly with what significance the AUM was derived from ?

      1. I can thoroughly recommend Sadhguru’s AUM video. The Aaaaa,Uuuuu,Mmmm technique is also recommended by Swami Satyananda Saraswati in his book “A Systematic Course in the Ancient Tantric Techniques of Yoga and Kriya”.

    1. AUM is the only word/sound which doesn’t use toungue for prononciation. Also Aum felt as The sound of universe.

    2. Shrushti adilo ‘A’kaaram, ‘U’kaaram, ‘M’akaaram kalisi AUM udbhavinchindi ani ekkado pravachalalo vinnattu gurthu.

    3. A is the vibrational manifestation of the physical animal material world, U is the vibrational manifestation of the human heart, emotions and love, M is the vibrational manifestation of the divine self, the Godliness. When chanted in a balanced way, we can awaken, purify and balance these three natures in us.

    1. It is not name. It is beginning of this universe, chant OM daily and you get benefits through out your life. Don’t feel shy of it. It’s absolutely free, no money.

    2. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. (from Bible)
      AUM is universal Sound / Word – it was from beginning, and the Word is God.
      AUM is very beneficial for human being.

  2. it is the basic duty of every human being to chant OM -AUM.. to get relaxed with the universe who has created it !! i have experienced it and experiencing ! can not explain in words OM OM OM OM OM

    Please read ‘Mandukya Upanishad’. Detailed explanation available. I learnt from a Telugu newspaper publication that hypertension and heart ailments of any kind can be cured by proper chanting of A U M. This info is there on Google Images.

  7. This Universe exist in the form of Vibration, frequency and resonance. If proper chanting vibration is achieved in a given frequency, the resonance is required to be experienced. Please read ‘Mandukya Upanishad’. No benefits without chanting.
