Hinduism is believed to be ultimate source to inner search and a religion that gives peace to troubled mind not through the God exactly but through the knowledge of self. This search if further supported by Aum or Om. It is ultimate sound of “anant”-the Infinite that resonates through body, mind and soul. Aum is supposed to be a complete word and sound that represents God and the universe alike. When we chant Om, we tend to relate ourselves to the unseen and unheard power that has created everything around us. Aum actually is believed to be omnipotent, omnipresent, and infinite.

Chanting Om gives a sense of inspiration and achievement in a being. It brings a person a bit nearer to self and hence to the God who is a part of us. The chanting of Aum has visible physical significance of body according to Yog Vidya. It is a good exercise for throat and respiratory system. It is also known to be the best form for meditation when we want to throw away everything that is in our mind and help us to concentrate on ourselves for good. This symbol is representation of God almighty as it represents manifests and non-manifest aspect of God. It is similar to the ideology of aspiration and aspiration. One sets a goal and then try to achieve that. One makes a picture of God (a form of Power) and then prays to gain some.

Chanting Aum is like reliving a part of happiness once again. It is so peaceful after one has chanted Aum for a while. Everything starts to feel clearer and stance of life seems to be more stable. It is researched that chanting Aum has calming and relaxing effect on mind and body. Internal organs seem to respond positively to the healing power of Aum. While chanting Aum, one must put more emphasis on “M” rather than “AU” part as long as possible. This enhances the body functioning and improves health.

This symbol is used while starting any good work and even starting a day. People wear it as a symbol of perfection in pendant or ring form of jewelry. One can relate to this sound and symbol almost immediately without a feeling of diversion that is generally brought by word “religion”. Hindu or not, Aum does gives a vision of infinity and beyond to every one who believe in a power that is indeed infinite but still stands untouched and unrealized in us. Aum is a way to feel that power!
