Let us first pay obeisance to the Guru in physical form or the
One who resides within us in the form of Brahma Vishnu Mahesh:
GururBramha GururVishnu Gurudevo Maheshrava Gurusaakshaat
Param Bramha Tasmai Shri Gurave Namah.
In Indian thought everything ends and begins with
Om kaaram Bindu sanyuktam nityam dhyaanti
kaamadam mokshadam chaiva omkaaraaya namo
Yogis always meditate on the Om.
Om is the Bindu (dot)
When one meditates on the Om, wishes and
realization is granted.
friend of mine, R. Salvi, asked me the following question :
tell me how the three sounds of AUM have an effect on us. I knew it but have
forgotten it. For Example Ah OO and M when chanted separately have
separate effects on our body. Please explain.
is my reply and explanation :
'Ah' emanates from the first chakra, called the Muladhara i.e. the root or base
chakra. It is associated with the earth element. People who are still at this
level, may not feel the need to grow, yet like the root of the tree, the
potentiality is there. The base chakra is the color red and is located at the
base of the spine. One can visualize the red of this energy center. It could
have a calming influence on whatever one is afraid of. It governs understanding
of the physical dimension. Its sound could cure problems connected with the
kidneys, spinal column, diseases of the blood... mentally challenged children
would find the color 'red' beneficial to become more alert as it would improve
Chakra is locked by: Fantasy and Imagination
unlocked by: Accepting reality
have infinite strength and flexibility to overcome all obstacles.
continues upwards to reach the second chakra called the Swadisthana. Its element
is water. Its tendency is to flow downward. It is the color orange and is
located in the sexual organs (ovaries in women, and testes in men). It is the
chakra that governs and cures attitudes in relationships, sex, reproduction and
menopause. It helps in alleviating chronic asthma, rheumatism, bronchitis...
Chakra is blocked by: fear and fear strokes
unlocked by: Accepting and facing fears.
am blessed with abundance of love and security.
'Ah' sound slowly turns to the 'U' sound. It travels up via the third chakra:
The Manipura, also called the Solar Plexus. Its element is fire and is yellow in
color. The fire's movement is upward. It governs the action of the spleen,
liver, stomach, diabetes, eczema and gall-bladder. It clears emotional
sensitivities. When one meditates on the yellow of the Solar Plexus, one may
begin to relax and let go of the need to control. One will start to feel more
confident, less critical and will break free from negative ego.
gets blocked by: extra worry
unblocked by: clarity of thought and constant practice of positive thought.
accept the Divine Plan, people and circumstances as appropriate. I understand
the mystery of life.
'U' sound reaches the fourth chakra, called the Anahata situated in the heart.
Its element is air. Its movement is in all directions and hence the potential is
unlimited. It is the center through which we feel love. When one meditates upon
the color green, the love that flows has the power to heal the entire body. It
governs the heart, blood, and circulatory system. Also influences the immune and
is blocked by: Need for attention
unblocked by: Love (generating and giving out)
love and approve of all beings. My heart is full of love and light. I am always
healing myself and others.
'M' comes out as a vibrating note through closed lips. The vibration of the 'M'
sound goes through the fifth chakra, the Visuddha, (element: ether) continues
through the sixth, arrives at the crown of the head, which is the seventh Chakra
and and fountains out and floods one with Physical, emotional and
spiritual well-being. The seven colours of the vibgyor, transform into a white
the fifth chakra is the throat chakra and is considered to be the colour blue.
If you have problems with expression, communication and judgment, then visualise
the colour blue and watch it dissolve all your blockages in that area. It
governs lungs, vocal chords, bronchial apparatus and metabolism.
by: jealousy and comparison
by: Knowing that you are a unique being.
trust the Universe. I communicate with love. My thoughts, feelings and
expression is pure.
sixth chakra (Agnya)is is located in the center of the forehead. It is popularly known
as the third eye. It is observed as the color indigo. The third eye location is
popularly considered, as the the spiritual domain. It externalizes as the
pituitary gland. It governs the nervous system, ears nose and the left eye.

by: Simplicity, innocence
am transcending darkness and ignorance.
am blessed with light, knowledge and wisdom. I am calm, relaxed and happy.
seventh or crown chakra (Sahasraara) is located at the top of the head. It is found where the
pineal gland is, and it supervises the upper brain and right eye. It is through
this chakra that one reaches Godhead. It is observed as the colour violet, or as
a white light, which is the combination of all colours.

Was reading an article on MS Subbulakshmi's musical renditions of Meerabai.
The author Sudhamahi Regunathan says that an art is an offering to the
Almighty and is an exercise in spirituality. In fact God becomes the Supreme
Lover and a the artist becomes a
devotee seeking to merge with Him. A spiritual song must come from the heart,
carry the listener to a transcendent plane of consciousness and make the
experiencing and the experiencer merge in a burst of delight.
Spiritual art conveys serenity.
The author states that Art takes the form of the human body and every aspect
of it becomes reference points in art.
In music for example:
Sa or sadja becomes the soul.
Ri or Rishabha the head
Ga or Gandhara the arms
Madhyama the chest
Panchama the throat
Dhaivat the lips
Nishada the feet.
Each of the notes emanated from the 7 Chakras in the body.
Each note is associated with a color according to the vibration they create.
Their permutations and combinations create ragas which have the capacity to
evoke different emotions. And then the spaces between the notes, the cycle of
repetition of the notes, are measured in tala-the same term used for measurement
of the human body in sculpture.
read fascinating information on Aum.
I asked for permission to reproduce it.
got the following reply:
the knowledge spread. Let humans understand the subtle world and its influence
on mind and evolution.
Credits has to go to all the ancient sages and seers who
first found it.
But to this small mind this frequency relation struck
and thus I have established a link between the old science and modern science.
My research continues, with all your blessings
the fascinating information:
The Nadha Brahmam "Ohm" or in Modern
terminology Schumman resonance has a close significance Aum corresponds to the
strongest of the schuman resonance among all other bio magnetic fields. We can
relate the seven different chakras in body to these sounds and also with
Schumann Resonances of earth, ie, 7.83, 14, 20, 26, 33, 39 and 45 Hertz of
earth. We all know 7.83 hz
being the strongest of all.
Ohm - 7.83Hz
Gam - 14hz
Hleem - 20Hz
Hreem - 26Hz
Kleem - 33Hz
Krowm - 39Hz
Sreem - 45Hz
Raam- is also a Beejaksharam, who resonance frequency lies between 26 to 33
Remember its all vibration, E = M * C^2 the energy emitted is square of
the vibration of mantra you use.
can raise the Kundalini with constant practice. May be the initiated Brahmin one
day realises that ENERGY is everything. Brahman is Everything which has taken
different forms of life.
OHM is interspersed in all mantras for important reasons. When you chant
"OHM" all the seven energy centers in human body get refreshed .
has energy centers and they all vibrate at different frequencies.
in a human body all the seven centers vibrate in their own plane,
radiating energy in all directions, then its is not a channelized way of
utilizing the energy.
need to channelize them. So that we may be able to use them
for a better purpose.
mantra has a specific frequency and only by uttering "OHM" one can
make all his/her energy centers to vibrate with the mantra.
concentrating thus one can accelerate ones evolution on earth
as humans, and move on to next levels.
Breath or the Prana or the Chi or Qi is the vital force that connects the body
Without Prana, mind and soul can not interact with the body.
mind needs to:
Repeatedly chant/meditate on a Mantra, 2) Control of the Prana.
this stage one can realize the subtle systems in the human body...
Mind has to evolve to reach this state. It is the eligibility for getting into
the world of subtle energies.
The Devanagari script or any other script is a kind of representation widely
spread and followed faithfully.
symbols and scriptures are just to help society understand.
scripts hold same power of OHM.

Some more information (M N Kundu)
as the sound symbol of the Absolute is called anahata, which means the uncreated
word vibration not produced on account of any friction while all other
vibrations are produced on account of friction. It is self created, a total
field of energy, neither blind, nor mechanical but profoundly intelligent...
archeypical mantra of Tibet, 'Om mani padme hum' was the first Buddhist text to
come to Tibet...In Tibet all those who are religiously minded constantly chant
it for attunement with cosmic vibration.
Anup Taneja writes:
The five lettered Mantra Om Namah Shivaya
The five syllables of this Mantra na, ma shi, va, ya are
beej aksharas or seed-letters of the five elements of creation;
earth, water, fire, air and ether. Flesh represents the earth,
blood represents water; the body heat that helps in digesting
food represents fire; the prana or life giving force represents
air; and the mind represents ether.
Constant repetition of these holy syllables, either verbally or
mentally generates powerful spiritual vibrations that render the
mind pure and one pointed directing it inwards, heaing
ultimately to the awakening of the kundalini, the spiritual
energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine, the muladhar,
in each individual.
While practicing mantra sadhana, the seeker sits on a woolen
blanket.(Shivji sits on animal skin) The reason being that the
vibrations generated through repetition of holy syllables tend
to get dispersed if one sits on a bare floor or wooden plank...
believes that the sound of the word never gets ruined and that it has an
in Sanskrit open out from their seed (beej) form.
is always a single syllable that contains one of the basic sounds a, I, u, ri
root or seed may create a word, yet the word will vibrate to its best, and gives
it tremendous power.
The Vedic or the Sanskrit view gives more importance to the special
sound it should produce, than to the meaning of the spoken word.
