If you walk alone , and if you are a thinker , there can be nothing more beneficial to you than to begin to chant OM when nobody is around .

The mantram OM does not belong to any special language .
Thinking it to be a Sanskrit word and not belonging to any other language , do not reject it . It is the name of GOD .
This syllable comes to you from within , nobody teaches you this syllable . It comes to you at birth .
The child's cry resembles remarkably the sound Oom , Om , Aam , a perverted form of OM .
The word OM comes from within to every child .

The last word of the Greek language is Omega which has the prominence of OM .
Also , in the English words , omnipresent , omniscient and omnipotent , the eminence of OM is distinct .
The presence of OM in these words is not just by chance .
It is on account of the word OM that these words give the indication of universalism .
OM3BITES | PART 01 | BITE00014 | RAMA राम
While chanting OM , you must feel yourself to be one with this true " I AM " .
By this strong feeling , the mind is merged in the Reality . By this strong belief , by this living knowledge of the mind , the mind becomes , as it were , a bubble which bursts into the mighty Ocean of Reality .
This is the way to Realization ; this strong feeling , this living knowledge on the part of the mind laying hold of you , and dehypnotizing your false self , is the way to gain Truth , to free yourself .
