What is the sound of OM?
The Sound of OM is the sound of our very soul and the sound of the universe itself. The sound of Om provides the fastest route to god-realization. Om Oṃ, Devanagari: ॐ, Kannada: ಓಂ, Tamil: ௐ, Telugu: ఓం), also written as Aum, is the most sacred syllable Symbol & mantra of Brahman The Almighty God in Hinduism. Brahman is Supreme Self, Ultimate Reality, Creator of all Existence. The syllable is often chanted either independently or before a mantra; it signifies the essence of the ultimate reality, consciousness or Atman. The Om sound is the primordial sound and is called the Shabda-Brahman (Brahman as sound).
The syllable Om is referred to as praṇava. Other used terms are akṣara (literally, letter of the alphabet, imperishable, immutable) or ekākṣara (one letter of the alphabet) and omkāra (literally, beginning, female divine energy).Udgitha, a word found in Sama Veda and bhasya (commentaries) based on it, is also used as a name of the syllable. The word has three phonemes: “a-u-m”, though it is often described as trisyllabic despite this being either archaic or the result of translation.
The syllable Om is first mentioned in the Upanishads, the mystical texts associated with the Vedanta philosophy. It has variously been associated with concepts of “cosmic sound” or “mystical syllable” or “affirmation to something divine”, or as symbolism for abstract spiritual concepts in the Upanishads. In the Aranyaka and the Brahmana layers of Vedic texts, the syllable is so widespread and linked to knowledge, that it stands for the “whole of Veda”. The etymological foundations of Omare repeatedly discussed in the oldest layers of the Vedantic texts (the early Upanishads). The Aitareya Brahmana of Rig Veda, in section 5.32, for example suggests that the three phonetic components of Om (pronounced AUM) correspond to the three stages of cosmic creation, and when it is read or said, it celebrates the creative powers of the universe. The Brahmana layer of Vedic texts equate Om with Bhur-bhuvah-Svah, the latter symbolizing “the whole Veda”. They offer various shades of meaning to Om, such as it being “the universe beyond the sun”, or that which is “mysterious and inexhaustible”, or “the infinite language, the infinite knowledge”, or “essence of breath, life, everything that exists”, or that “with which one is liberated”.
Omkara Kriya Yoga
Omkara Kriya Yoga is a seated yogic meditation that includes 18 secret levels which systematically and scientifically establishes the practitioner in Cosmic Awareness and cultivates the Light Body. Each posture in the Omkara Kriya Yoga meditation awakens a different circuit of light and energy though the body. The different mudras concentrate the light in different energetic centers in the body, and awaken specific points in the brain. In the past, masters used to release only one level at a time to truly test disciples and passed on the practice to only rare deserving candidates. Unfortunately this method made it almost impossible for the disciples to progress no matter how much they practiced. Knowing a fraction of a password will never allow you access.
The Mystical Art of Omkara Kriya Yoga
Guru Padmasambava – The “Lotus Born” Second Buddha who brought the Light Body teachings to Tibet in the 8th century.
Why is the release of Omkara Kriya Yoga significant today?
The general public first heard the term Kriya Yoga after Paramahamsa Yogananda published his best selling novel in 1946,
“The Autobiography of a Yogi”, detailing records of his own experiences with masters who, supposedly through ancient yogic arts, managed to not only reach enlightenment but transform their physical cells to pure Light. Through Yogananda’s passionate recount, we hear of masters, such as Mahavatar Babaji, who are able to live for thousands of years in the Himalayas without facing the stabs of death. We hear of yogis such as Lahiri Mahasaya, whose body became so subtle that he did not cast a shadow on the ground and was unable to be photographed. Though the public was initially skeptical of these divine possibilities, Yogananda’s ability to awaken divine experiences in anyone who followed his teachings began to draw a massive following. After a few decades, millions started to follow the path of self realization. It is common knowledge that the only book that Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, had on his iPad and recommended everyone to read was in fact Yogananda’s “The Autobiography of a Yogi”. In 2014, Counterpoint films released “Awake: The Life of Yogananda”, a biography of Paramahamsa Yogananda that is still being shown around the world in theaters, and is now available on DVD, digital rental and via Netflix streaming, spreading the knowledge of Kriya Yoga to a continuing widening audience.
Though, over the last 80 years, the public has been completely sincere in their desire to experience the divine as recorded in “Autobiography of a Yogi”, unfortunately the complete and authentic system of Kriya Yoga has never been available in its entirety. The public has never practiced what Mahavatar Babaji taught Lahiri Mahasaya in the secret himalayan caves to actualize immortality. In the last 80 years we have only received a watered down, incomplete form of the practice that only hinted at the true science, which has always been kept shrouded in secrecy. Lack of knowledge, incomplete levels, and practices that needed Guru initiation to be effective has been tormenting all the thousands of sincere seekers that simply want to actualize their divine potential as Yogananda described back in 1946. Most received only levels one and two of the Kriya Yoga that Yogananda taught. Even these first and second levels of Kriya were simply mechanical exercises that involved chanting to various centers in the body. Those who followed Hariharananda’s Kriya Yoga path also faced similar problems of having only the beginning levels and practicing mechanical exercises. Knowledge of higher forms and levels of Kriya Yoga, and knowledge of the actual process to awaken the cosmic power latent within the soul, the Light Body, has always been shrouded in confusion. No one really knew what it took to achieve the level of masters like Mahavatar Babaji and Lahiri Mahasaya. There has been a new Kriya that was created in the last ten years by Mahavatar Babaji labelled Atma Kriya Yoga. Though that practice has drawn a following, again out of the 5 levels, people are only allowed the first two levels which are again mechanical exercises.
What did Mahavatar Babaji teach over a thousands years ago? What were the meditations that were practiced prior to a hundred years ago? What is needed to awaken the Light Body? Were the meditations that immortal yogis practiced in the secret caves of the Himalayas, the same as what was available for people living in the world? Is what was told in “Autobiography of a Yogi” a myth, or was it really possible for everyone to actualize the Light Body, as long as they laid their hands on the right science? Until very recently there has been no real, satisfying answers to these questions that have been lying within the hearts of seekers for decades. Was anyone ever going to find out the real answers to these questions? The future of enlightenment for the everyday individual was very uncertain and shaky.
When I had the great blessings to become a part of a lineage that was over a thousand years old, I knew that the real keys to spirituality were close at hand.The practices of the lineage were fiercely guarded by the head abbots of secret temples. Master of the lineage taught me an ancient meditation from the Tang Dynasty that he said awakened the Light Body in a flavor of celestial white energy. He said that in addition to this practice being heavily related to Hinduism and Buddhism, masters in the past have used this meditation to attempt to achieve immortality. As soon as I began to practice the mediation I realized it was the authentic secret Kriya Yoga system that was never released publicly and remained hidden. I knew that this Kriya Yoga method was exactly what people had been searching for since the time of Yogananda. The Master said this was an oral tradition and never ever written down by the monks. One could only learn methods such as these if they were born in the temple tradition of China and Tibet. Even in the “Autobiography of a Yogi”, Yogananda told of a saint by the name of Swami Vishudananda, who after spending 12 years in a mystical hidden away temple in the mountain ranges of Tibet, came back to India with supernormal powers, having the ability to materialize objects, emit divine fragrances, levitate, and glow with Light. After practicing this method for sometime, and experiencing effects that I had never previously imagined, I realized this practice could do great service to the world. This desire to experience the great spiritual Light that I was finally experiencing with Omkara Kriya Yoga method, was deep within the heart of not just me, but everyone who sincerely longed for enlightenment. If the Omkara Kriya Yoga was released more publicly, this desire could finally be fulfilled. For the first time in history, there is now a chance for everyone to discover and benefit from the secret yogic sciences.
