Cosmic Sound of Om

"The cosmic sound can be caught only when the heart radio, of the deeply meditating devotee is tuned to Om's rate of vibration." SRF

Yoga as an industry has exploded to include everything that can be marketed as useful to the yoga student from the "yoga toes and paws" to the ancient sanskrit symbol AUM om. 

I am including myself within this realm of creating yoga products, specifically the inspiration to create the symbol Om into jewelry. 

This ancient sacred symbol defines the essence of all there is. It is the vibrational sound that permeates all of the universe known and unknown. In the words of Self Realization Fellowship founder Paramahansa Yogananda, " Om is the bridge between human consciousness and Cosmic consciousness." He goes on to say that we are a three fold radio (body, mind and soul) and through yoga meditation we are able to actually hear with our dominant ear- usually the right- the actual sounds of the universe. As one practices yoga and meditation the body, mind and soul becomes attuned to this divine frequency. The continuous practice of listening for the "astral sounds of the cerebrospinal centers, or the om sound...you will behold the cosmic ocean of God's consciousness and the wave of your consciousness existing together as one."

In B.K.S. Iyengar book, Light on Yoga, he states the latin word Omne and the Sanskrit word Aum are similar in root meaning taken as omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence as is the word pranava, which is another word for AUM which can be translated as the best prayer or the best praise.

Om symbolism can have multipleI interpretations, all of which can help clarify this ancient symbol.

One of my favorite Om interpretations, is the symbolic representation of 3 dimensions. The past, present, and future and then the newly discovered 4th dimension as time itself. The a=past u=present m=future and the three parts as a whole symbolizing the place beyond time and space which is in the NOW.

Mother, Father and Guru and fourth the knower of Self

Holy Ghost, Christ Consciousness and the Cosmic Consciousness

asana, pranayama, pratyahara and the final samadhi

the creator, the maintainer, the destroyer and the whole the "One that ever remains unchanged"

body, mind, spirit into Oneness

Tah has been involved with Yoga most of her life. She started practicing as a teenager. Inspired by a mentor to join a class at 16 sparked the yoga fire which has been burning ever since. After launching a sportswear line with her then husband in the late 80′s and becoming a mother of two daughters, it was time for a healing change. Trusting in the age old adage, “Do what you love”, was the consistent echo in her mind. A pivotal time of transition, a powerful period in her life as she realized the path that called her. Do what you love clearly meant that she become a teacher. In 1996 working simultaneously within the health food industry as a reliable source for nutritional council and support, Tah’s yoga business grew. She was able to open one of the first yoga studios in La Jolla. Shakti Yoga was born. After enjoying this prime location for a handful of years she realized the benefit of being a mobile instructor. This was the next logical step for her since the established client base was corporate and private. As she teaches she shares her healing touch of Reiki and Thai Yoga Therapy. Tah lives in San Diego with her partner of 15 years; and besides her two daughters who are in their 20s, has a rambunctious 5 year old son, who instead of a dog to follow him around has a loyal Bengal cat named Jagger.
