  • Going back Om

    For those of us who remember to think & work for seven generations.

    In last saturday conference, the statement

    It is now Time to get back Om have evoqued wisdom reminescence and awaken the Inner Coherence from our Past.

    The Motto we have seen in the last couple of decennies
    Our Past is our Future and our Future is our Past has become a vision acessible to many.

    When the Power of colonisation made its revolution that is;
    Shift of Powers from Landlords to the Scientific Know How,
    cf: The Civil wars, the industrial revolution, the urbanisation of human beings,
    Wise Sachems, Swami's, and alikes, foresaw the ineluctable destiny of such a promiscuity.

    Getting back Om, is getting back into the Garden that Mother Nature Granth us.

    Yes she has been wounded, badly wounded, but she has seen them all, and she has her own 'immunity'. It was not the first Time that Civilisation tried to make her a domestic resources.

    Mother is the breast, the sacred breast not because we decide to exploited her but because it is her Nature.

    So the new Kids in town had its Pow Wow, Now the Pow Wow is almost over, the site is a mess, the Kids have lost their Minds, their Health and their Memory.

    We will not be able to bring back Om all of them.

    The Elderly, Living Witness and Memories of Autonomy, the Wises who had protected the Wisdom, the Mothers Local Spirit Strenght are still like old trees in regions.

    As for warriors, we are loosing tens of thousands each days, and we are not as many as we used to be, and the Darwinian scientifics disciples continue to provide the Gengis Khan of this World the arms technologicals advantages to the greedy's.

    Has many of you knows, Mother has a lot of surprises in her purses.

    She is now shaking to remove those nasty fleas on her back, and when Mother Nature says Ya Basta, get back Om Sisters and Brothers.

    Om, this serene state of Being is in Nature, grab the Ancient know-how, remember the community resources and wisely take with you those darwinists scientific pragmatic, but respectfull elements towards Mother Nature with you.

    Yes the new Future looks a lot like our Past.

    Welcome back Om.

      </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Aum (also Om, ) is the most sacred syllable in Hinduism, symbolizing the infinite Brahman and the entire Universe. This syllable is sometimes called the "Udgitha" or "pranava mantra" (primordial mantra), because it is considered to be the primal sound, and because most mantras begin with it. It first came to light in the Vedic Tradition. As a seed syllable (bija), it is also considered holy in Esoteric Buddhism.
      The Aum symbol is a ligature of Devanagari ओ+ँ (oṃ, encoded in Unicode at U+0950 ॐ, the Tibetan script variant ༀ at U+0F00).

      The Significance of the Symbol Om

      The symbol Om (also called Pranava), is the most sacred symbol in Hinduism. Volumes have been written in Sanskrit illustrating the significance of this mystic symbol. Although this symbol is mentioned in all the Upanishads and in all Hindu scriptures, it is especially elaborated upon in the Taittiriya, Chandogya and Mundaka Upanishads.
      <dl> <dd>The goal, which all Vedas declare, which all austerities aim at, and which humans desire when they live a life of continence, I will tell you briefly it is Om. The syllable Om is indeed Brahman. This syllable Om is the highest. Whosoever knows this symbol obtains all that he desires. This is the best support; this is the highest support. Whosoever knows this support is adored in the world of Brahman. <dl><dd>-Katha Upanishad I, ii, 15-17</dd></dl> </dd> </dl> The symbol of Om contains of three curves, one semicircle and a dot. The large lower curve symbolizes the waking state; the upper curve denotes deep sleep (or the unconscious) state, and the lower curve (which lies between deep sleep and the waking state) signifies the dream state. These three states of an individual?s consciousness, and therefore the entire physical phenomenon, are represented by the three curves. The dot signifies the Absolute (fourth or Turiya state of consciousness), which illuminates the other three states. The semicircle symbolizes Maya and separates the dot from the other three curves. The semicircle is open on the top, which means that the absolute is infinite and is not affected by maya. Maya only affects the manifested phenomenon. In this way the form of Om symbolizes the infinite Brahman and the entire Universe and the world. Aum is made out of the three gods Shiva and Ganesh and Gayatri.
      <dl> <dd>Uttering the monosyllable Om, the eternal world of Brahman, One who departs leaving the body (at death), he attains the superior goal. <dl><dd>-Bhagavad Gita, 8.13</dd></dl> </dd> </dl> When OM is a part of a place name (for example Omkareshwar), or is used as a man's name, it is spelled phonetically using ordinary letters of whatever Indian alphabet is used in the area.
