First and foremost as i always say. One can not experience this bliss unless one tries to experience it on it’s own for that he/she needs practice, the true devotion to the goal of the life. Primary i want to share my own an experience what i fell when i chant ‘Om’ that is not in google or any other resources. An eternal pleasure which increases each time when i chant om, an eternal power i acquire when i chant ‘Om’ that is beyond, always fresh and ever lasting, i relax very much, i can control my anger and fustration only if i regularly practice om. as well the truth can be found in the words of the great sages, Rishis, Yogis, Who experienced this bliss nevertheless if one can put question. How do i believe in it ?
An example- An example is maha purushs in himself. One who is uttering this wisdom. Your own effort to experience the hidden truth can come by practice it, daily practice.
Hindu chant and use it in their all mantras because it is very sacred it gives them energy.
It cleared purpose of themselves lives. When rishies discovered it they felt same things. during 2500 years ago or timeless space there were no religion. They took it as symbol
to meditate and whatever revealed they wrote for people welfare. so there is nothing about hindu or muslim or christian about it. It’s part of every major culture and symbol to meditate, respect. Christains and jews use it as ‘Amen’ to denote strong affirmation.
Our muslim bothers and sisters use it as ‘Aamin’, Buddhist use it as ‘Om mani padme hum’. Sikhism is based on fundamental tenet of ‘Ikomkar’ or ‘One om’.
It’s for the entire humanity beyond all religious.
Omni which forms root of so many words implies infinity or ubiquity or tremendous presence. For example- Omnipresent, Omnipresent, Omniscient etc.
Thus om-like its source vedas is beyond all later day religious or cultural divisions and is for entire humanity just as air, water,sunlight, blessings of ‘Ishwara’ love of mother, Compassion for fellow beings.
