The difference between Om and Aum

Standard

aum

OM is —– The spirit of God, the sound, vibration of this universe that is the absolute truth.

What is Aum then?

AUM is a representation of the three Gods in three planes.

The representation of the three Gods:

A — Stands for Shiva — the past, the birth, rebirth and reincarnation.

U — Stands for Vishnu — the present, the time/space of our universe

M — Stands for Brahma — the future, the manifestation/creation of our universe Om.

 

The three planes:

Bhur Bhuva Svah

Bhur — Earth —- Lord Shiva

Bhuva — In the sky — Lord Vishnu

Svah — In space — Bharm

The representation of Aum shows the three planes of our existence.

AUM also represents Past, Present and Future. ¬†If you say — the names of Shiva, Vishnu and Bhrama, they do sound true to their representation — past, present and future.

About Iksvakave

I am on a quest to understand my religion --- Hinduism. I have decided to keep a log of my discoveries, and experiences and what I have come to learn in the process. I like to travel through people vicariously. To observe the working of the mind, body and spirit. And heart. The soul infact is what our bodies have and what we are ultimately or in the end! The pricelessness of the soul is a soul is only potentially divine. Our journey here is therefore to understand that divinity in our lives. The ideals of societies, language, culture religion, and spirituality, is what interests me. what we know and don't know and outside of our four walls, maybe the priceless truth of that journey here on earth also, our yoga to be learned and equally perfected in life. What this blog is about is the values of the mother tongue India. And the values and culture of India and my nationality America. Pricelessness of it one will come to know you see. The forehead, is the center of the Hindu conscious.

  1. thank you for the excellent post… most sites erroneously report OM and AUM are aliterations of the same, I believe your description is accurate… in old tamil songs om and aum are mentioned separately… in vinayagar agaval it is mentioned AUM is form that born from OM (AUM is the “vadivam” raising from OM, the OMKARAM)
