The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Om

DEFINITIONS

Om: Also AUM; the Universal sound of Creation that manifests in all things.
source: Sacred Path of Reiki, by Katalin Koda

Om: Mya Om (Michigan) has traveled around the world. A lifelong witch, she was initiated into the Craft in 1998, after studying both Dianic and American Eclectic Wiccan traditions. She is the author of Energy Essentials for Witches and Spellcasters and The Un-Spell Book.

Om: In Hinduism, the sound that is the source of all. It has its own symbol in Sanskrit. It is traditionally pronounced Ah-oo-mm, starting in the back of the throat, moving to the center of the mouth and ending with closed lips, metaphorically representing all sounds. Also pronounced in other ways (such as “ohm”) depending upon purpose, dialect, etc. It is used as a start to most Hindu mantras.

Om:

A symbol that predates written language. Om is often described as being the primordial sound; it is also called the primordial or liberation mantra. Chanting it, even just for a few minutes, can produce changes in consciousness.
