Welcome to A To Z On Mindfulness For Newbies
The fifteenth letter to be explored in A To Z on Mindfulness For Newbies is O. O is for Om Chanting.
Om, pronounced “Aum,” represents the threefold division of time (waking state, dreaming state, and deep sleep). It is the sound of creation, the first sound of the universe representing all that is in creation. Om also represents God, Source, or Universal Consciousness. It also depicts the past, the present, and the future.
“Om is the sacred name of that indescribable One. This word is the holiest of all words. He who knows the secret of this word receives that which he desires.”
– Swami Vivekananda
Om is sacred and resonates high spiritual energy. It connects us to all living creatures in the world. This is the highest sacred symbol in Hinduism. It represents both finite as well as infinite. This one syllable contains everything from Vedas. It is the representation of the Hindu trinity Brahma, Vishnu and Siva.
The Vibrations of OM are not only beneficial for the one who is chanting but for every one who is listening. It creates a positive environment.

Morning meditation is the best way to start but you can do it any time anywhere. Chant Om silently. Chant at least for 21 times daily.
