Performance Notes

Om is not a word but rather an intonation, which—like music—transcends the barriers of age, race, culture, and even species. It is made up of three Sanskrit letters: aa, au, and ma. When combined together, these make the sound of Aum, or Om. It is believed to be the basic sound of the world and to contain all other sounds; it is a mantra or prayer in itself. If repeated with the correct intonation, it can resonate throughout the body so that the sound penetrates to the centre of one’s being, the atman or the soul. There is harmony, peace, and bliss in this simple but deeply philosophical sound. By vibrating the sacred syllable, Om—the supreme combination of letters—one may transcend the body to the Supreme Personality of Godhead and reach the highest of stateless eternity.
