OM, Its Meaning and Significance - Special Class

Om is the name of Ishwara, the Lord, according to the Vedas, Bhagavad-Gita and Yoga Sutra. The sound of Om is considered most auspicious.  Most mantras and prayers begin with Om. Om, however, is a mantra by itself. As far as symbols go, Om is truly Omnipresent. 
It's a word in Sanskrit language, at the same time it transcends all languages.  

OM is considered to be the ‘primordial sound’. Even before the material creation came into existence there was only the natural humming energy which resembled the sound of OM. Today, we know that one form of energy can be converted to another form – electricity to sound, electricity to heat, heat to electricity etc. According to the famous equation by Einstein – E=mc2, all matter is nothing but waves of energy. So, when the ‘powers that be’ decided to create this material universe, they were able to use the ever-present humming sound vibration of OM to manifest this creation. This same vibration continues to exist all around us and even inside us. The inner sound is given the name "antar-naada" (the inner sound) which can be heard when we can tune in to our pure inner self.

In this talk, we will take an in-depth look into the meaning and significance of Om. There will be time afterwards for a Q&A session.

The Jyotish Astrology, in Sanskrit translated as “Science of Light,” is a profound and mathematically sophisticated form of astrology that originated in the ancient Vedic tradition of India. It describes how planetary patterns at the time of our birth give valuable clues in helping us understand our life’s journey. Through careful analysis of these cosmic influences, Jyotish Astrology can help us realistically evaluate our strengths and weaknesses in order to optimize our full potential.

By forecasting the changing trends and periods of our lives, Jyotish Astrology can enable us to make more evolutionary choices. It can help provide participants with valuable information in all areas of their lives and can offer practical remedial measures to help alleviate areas of difficulty, giving the confidence to manifest our true destiny and create success, happiness and harmony on all levels.
