OM – Mantra chant

OM
Om is the symbol for the whole universe. It carries three basic sounds: A-U-M. These three basic sounds through which all the sounds have evolved.
So Om is the basic trinity of sound, the synthesis of all the basic roots.
That’s why Om is considered the secret mantra, the greatest mantra, because it implies the whole existence,
it represents the sound of soundlessness, the beauty of silence.

OM represents the music of existence, the soundless sound, the sound of silence. OM represents the inner most music of our being, the inner harmony,
the inner humming sound which happens when our body, mind, soul are in deep totality, when the visible and the invisible, the un-manifest and the manifest, the relative and absolute, the-outer and inner are in deep togetherness.

To become one with OM-the music of existence is to attain fulfillment.

    The Buddha had absoolutely nothing to do with Taoism. Many of today’s Buddhist practices were borrowed from both Taoist and Hindu practices. I misworded my original post as what I was trying to say was that the 3 spiritual tradition share many of the same principles (roots). However, there is much misinformation re: the timeline on the origin of Taoism. Thank-you for the education on Hinduism from yourself and many other very understanding and sage voices on this site.

    @vastawake Your comment: “The principles of Buddhism and Hinduhism have their roots in Taoism or Daoism”!!!
    Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. You have a great sense of humour!!! Please learn a bit more about religions and traditions. Taoism and Hinduism are not linked in anyway at all!! Chinese current generation is a mix of Taoism and Buddhism. Buddhism is an offshoot of Hinduism because Buddha (Gautama Siddhartha) himself was a Hindu “Kshatriya”!! Educate yourself and dont get too confused!!

    @vastawake The yogic and meditative practices are based on a breathing technique called Pranayama. When Buddhists introduced these meditative practices to china, it was assimilated with local chinese breathing technics to from qi gong.

    @Thinking Guy100. May I suggest you look into Qi Gong. The ancient Taoist breathing practice which is the basis of all Yogic and meditative pracise? Even my Yoga instructors from India agree that Qi Gong breathing is the basis of this practice. Breath (the first thing we do when we are born is breathe then we make sound = OM (sound vibration) the origin of life…

    @ThinkingGuy100 I appreciate your suggestion that I read the Bhagwad Gita as I am very into exploring new ways of looking at meditation and spiritual practice in general. I appreciate your knowledge and our discussions here. Thanks for your patience, insights and understanding.

    @vastawake and a correction: the meditation practices are originated from the shramana tradition and not vedas. Shramanas did not accept the authority of the vedas. The different types of yoga are well described in Bhagwad Gita.

    @ThinkingGuy100 I …
    @ThinkingGuy100 I appreciate your knowledge of the Hindu traditions but your knowledge of Taoism and it’s time line is off as it DID NOT originate in books. The I Ching practice of divination began long long before the book was ever committed to paper. Yes I agree the Vedic traditions have a longer written historical record. Taoist practices have always been passed through mysticism but rightness & wrongness are all perception so I am not here to argue. all these practices are about peace

    @vastawake Your …
    @vastawake Your comment was wrong on many levels.Hindus and buddhists were not influenced by taoist practices.It was the other way around.Vedas were written 1000 years before I ching.The meditation practices as practiced today are described for the first time in the vedas and in the bhagawad gita in detail.This is not chicken and egg situation as you would like to make it out to be.The entire meditation practice (for both mind and body) is from hindu books not buddhist.

    @ThinkingGuy100 I believe that the information you may be finding on Taoism and it’s origins may be misplaced. Many, believe & it is quoted many times falsely on the net that Lao Tzu is the father of Taoism. he was an important philosopher yes but the Taoist practices, such as alchemy medicine, the I Ching divination method and meditation practices have been around since 10,000 BCE. I didn’t write the post to argue over which came first the chicken or the egg… but these traditions share roots

    @vastawake the trancendance through mind and body is a single science it comes from ancient hinduism books such as Vedas and Bhagwad Gita. Please read before making the wrong statements.

    @vastawake That’s not correct. Hinduism is the root of this philosophy and Buddhism also uses the same philosophy. Taoism and Daoism came were late and their roots lie in Buddhism and not the other way around.

    @vastawake that is incorrect. hinduism suggests multiple ways for transcendence. the way (ie yoga ie discipline of actions) of the body (or selfless work) , the way of selfless love / devotion, the way of meditative and physical austerities/ ascetism/ rituals and the way of knowledge / mind. Buddhist practices are most similar to the way of the mind and the way of austerities.
