Fascinating..... Is it possible any conception we have of the om could be applicable since it is described in different ways and can manifest differently? It certainly does not hurt to contemplate its significance.


In reference to your entry below:



"word", AUM, AMEN -- common thread / concept throughout many paths, many religions... many flavors of related techniques / practice / philosophy thru ages... yet, at heart consider simply as "holy vibration" (of creation).   In doing, not limit as only sound, not limit to sense... many prophets spoke in parable poetry conveying layers of meaning within single telling (i.e. physical, mental, spirit, moral, etc.)... flavors of meditative technique(s) of "AUM" (regardless of path) may also exist within/without sense or even senses... consider illustrate discuss further... vibration in creation...  string on instrument vibrates to produce sound... wavelength of light vibrates to produce color spectrum... on and on... 

consider "challenges with AUM meditation".... if "interruptive noise of sense world", understood... if "interuptive noise of mind world", understood...   not despair, strive on...  upon recognition of obstacle upon journey, pillar of progress reached, lead proper deploy of focus / tool(s) ...   Consider, "holy vibration" AUM is beyond simple chant in many ways, so take heart,  "holy vibration" along many paths/methods, layers and myriad of compositional vibrations...  likewise, consider "Sensorium" from publicly available book, The Holy Science, by Jnanavatar Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri -- Chapter 1 (The Gospel) - Sutra 17 --   
"...man becomes able to direct all his organs of sense inward to their common center – the sensorium, Trikuti or Sushumnadwara, the door of the interior world – where he comprehends the Voice, like a peculiar 'knocking' sound, [the Cosmic Vibration that is] the Word, Amen, Aum..."



Apologies divine brothers/sisters, public or other format... many paths hold ancient yogic injunctions on sharing heart of path / techniques...  therby, each devotee given opportunity to recieve from "heart/source" of path, so as not distill or distort... so it is with this little devotee's path...   many commonalities among various paths, yet even sitting next to another devotee entire life on same path, those two paths are distinct manifestations / unfoldings...  often may not offer much beyond compassion and divine love... yet simplest, subtle energy is most prized...

blessings
AUM TAT SAT

Nomaste every one i put this quote in for a several reasons. One is that a friend (Yoshi) has been talking to me about putting us and everything else in the om; thanks Yoshi. Secondly i have found that what Paramahasnsa Yogananda has said here is true from some of my personal experience with the om. Thirdly; to offer the technique of the om practice to any one who is interested. Lastly because many of us here have an interest and experience with angels. Paramahansa Yogananda mentions the attractive power of the om practice to draw angels into your life.


'By meditating on om, the pure vibratory aspect of God in creation, and on God the Absolute Spirit beyond creation, one can develop soul magnetism and spiritual vibratory magnetism. This magnetic force has limitless range and power. If morning, noon, and nite you keep yourself dreaming, feeling and intuiting the all-attracting divine magnetism, you will develop spiritual power that can draw desired objects form a distance, that can uplift others by the mere contact of sight, or even by a your simple wish or your powerfully directed uplifting concentration. By this power you can draw friends from afar----those who have been real friends before. By this power you can make the elements bow to your wishes. By the invitation of the divine magnetism you can draw angels, the luminous creative forces, sages and saints of bygone eras on earth to come to you and dance in your inner temple of joy. By this power you can draw the rays of all knowledge to come and sparkle and scintillate around your being.'

Beautifully put!  Thank you so much for sharing.

Indeed, just about everything you mentioned that follows the meditation upon om seems to be what is happening to me.

Something else i have been noticing more and more. Yoshi and i have been talking about this and she has encouraged me: The more and more u listen. The more and more u hear this sound all around u all the time. It starts out as an eeeee in your ears. In moments of silence the sound of this peace pervades the atmosphere. i remember stepping outside a car, once in the desert, at nite and out of the deafening silence came the sound of om permeating the environment.

om peace om bliss

i found the om technique given by Parmahasa Yogananda (and others including Amma) as very valuable to making the sound of om a reality in my life. i really do not know if i would have ever been aware of that sound had it not been for the technique. So i am very grateful to Paramahansa Yogananda for this technique that he has given the world that mkes it possible to hear many internal and divine sounds. i think at first most of us need a way to close off the outer noise and some of the internal chatter as well so that we can begin to hear that low rumbling which sounds like the ocean from a distance. i say this because when u r up near the ocean u hear the waves but the om sound is more like the rumble of the ocean (to me) rather then the sound of waves.

If anyone questions that this sound really exists; How can they know unless they try a technique to hear it? It is tantamount to saying i do not believe there there r such a thing as fireflies. Well if u live out here in southern California u might have that perception because i have never seen one out here. But if u go to the Midwest near Michigan and go out at nite eventually u will see them. In the same manner most people will not hear the om sound unless they r exposed to a way of listening to it. If they r resistant to being exposed to it how will they ever know?

We have a wonderful technic that Paramahansa Yogananda gave us for listening to the om for long periods of time and you do not even have to accept Yogananda as your Guru to get this technique. At first you hear internal sounds of the body but after a while you may hear heavenly music or the sound of the ocean roar and you can immerse yourself in it. You may even be fortunate enough to be in a quiet place in nature and hear the sound of om uzzzing out of the ether. I feel so fortunate to have this technique that Paramahansa Yogananda gave all of us if we want it.

And in the beginning was the word. And the word was with God. And the word was God. Not the Bible. It had not been written yet. But the om. Sometimes you can hear that sound during meditation. The cosmic motor. The sound of creation.

You can merge yourself in this sound. That is why people meditate on this sound. It is God speaking. I heard this sound in the stillness of the desert. Sometimes I hear it in meditation. It sounds similar to wind blowing high up in the trees in a forest or like the roar of the ocean.

I stopped my car and stepped outside. That nite there was nothing...No wind. No ocean...Just deafening stillness and the magnificence of the stars carpeting the sky.  And out of the silence came God's presence in the sound of om.
