The Significance of Om book
This word OM stands for God. It has great significance, a significance which manifests itself in motion, knowledge and attainment. The beginning is expressed by motion, the middle is expressed by assent, and the end is shown by the bringing together and closing up of the inquiring articulation started at the beginning. All the Vedas and Shastras declare OM as the primary and natural name of God, including thereby all motion, knowledge and attainment for the purpose of knowing Him. The chanting of the word OM, signifying God, expresses at once the seeking, the completion of the seeking and the closing-in of the sought, so this word is the best for meditation purposes. The great sage Vyas in a treatise on yoga has proclaimed that by yoga one sees light of knowledge by concentration between the eyes, in the navel, in the heart, and in all other centres.
