When a product comes out a sound is generated. Likewise, when cosmic generator is on a sound is generated. So when creator started creation a cosmic sound came out. This sound came out of first vibratory element ether. The sound so generated is OHM. If we follow the sound and walk in that direction of sound the source will be revealed to us. Similarly, if we follow that and merge into OHM sound we will know the source “God”.
Ohm ityekaksharam Brahma”.
- - - - Bhagavad Geeta 8 – 13.
Ohm is divine sound that emanated from eternal Brahmam. This divine sound is the combination of commingling of Akaara (physical body), ukaara (subtle body) and Makaara (causal or idea body).
This universe is the commingling of physical subtle & causal creation. And this universe is the image of this divine sound only. So the combination of macro, physical, subtle and causal worlds that is universe is nothing but this sound Omkaaram only and this Omkaaram is the God only.
OM is a sound as well as its replica also. It is a combination of 3 syllables viz., Akaara ukaara and makaara. It represents the colossus of Universe. The whole physical Cosmos came out of Big Bang. This is called Manifested Brahman.
