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…
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.
“This is the first lesson to learn:
be determined not to curse anything outside,
not to lay the blame upon anyone outside,
but stand up,
lay the blame on yourself.
You will find that is always true.
Get hold of yourself.”
~ Swami Vivekananda ~
The great Chicago Speech by Vivekanda in September 1893 with his memorable speech: “Yes, we can and will do”. For the west, the first public encounter with the Eastern way of life and thinking.
His speech remains a milestone in the dialogue between men of different cultures in the search for peace and harmony.
However, to blame a crippled man with karma from a previous life is a terrible thought, which has always been refuted by Western tradition. No blame for others, no blame for self. Many are paying karma for others…
(Image: Arjuna and his conchshell in the MaHaBaRaTa)
Then, Lord Krsna blew His conchshell, called Pancajanya; Arjuna blew his, the Devadatta; and Bhima, the voracious eater and performer of Herculean tasks, blew his terrific conchshell called Paundram. – BG 1, 15
Words and sounds have lost their meanings.
So many sounds.
So many words.
Find the sounds behind the words
and you will find their meanings…
WA is the sound of your throath – remember the barking dog
RA is the sound of Light – remember the pharao’s
TA is the sound of divine – remember the Greek
LA is the sound of praise – remember the soung of your soul
A is the sound of understanding
LA is the sound of praise
Remember the soung of your soul
