The sound is in the ears
Amongst our five senses, the hearing is the most important.
If the ear rebels, the other senses rebel…
All senses are equally important
It is only recently that the prevalence of hearing,
(when it comes to obedience for example) imposed to me
Most Holy Scriptures start with “listen” or “hear”
And the importance of the sound and word is stressed
Rather than the picture or vision
When you close your eyes, you activate alfa and beta sounds…
The sound of meditation…
Close your eyes and listen…
– Divine sound is the cause of all manifestation –
Nanak, in the Jap Ji, has called it Hukam and describes Its working:
All things are manifestations of His Will,
But His Will is beyond description.
By His Will is matter quickened into life,
By His Will is greatness obtained.
By His Will some are born high and others low,
By His Will (the impious) wander in endless transmigration.
All exists under His Will,
And nothing stands outside.
One attuned with His Will, O Nanak, is wholly free from ego…
– Mesmerizing Divine Sound –
BG 17 : 23
Om is a single syllable word that denotes brahman.
It is the most sacred sound according to Hindu belief.
Tat means ‘that’ or ‘it’ and refers to brahman.
It serves as a reminder that ‘we are not doing the work’
and helps overcome our ego.
Sat means ‘real’ or ‘good’ and refers to brahman.
It inspires an overall attitude of goodness in action.
Om Tat-Sat : Om, the eternal transcendental sound vibration of Ultimate consciousness, the threefold representation known to indicate Ultimate Truth.
This is declared to be the threefold designation of the Absolute.
– Hear, o Israël, the sound of Shofar
The gathering of menkind in praise of the only One
Thank you all for making me wonder and find Beauty!
