      Om Namah Shivaya is a most potent and popular mantra, which is at the
      heart of the Vedas and Tantra, and is widely used in this and other
      variations in the Himalayan tradition, as well as by others. While
      there are other descriptions of the mantra, the following focuses on
      meanings for mantra meditation leading to Self-Realization.

      OM/AUM: The three parts of Om (A-U-M) encompass the three states of
      waking, dreaming, deep sleep, the three levels of gross, subtle,
      causal, and the three levels of conscious, unconscious, subconscious,
      as well as the three universal processes of coming, being, and going.
      Absolute silence beyond the three levels is the silence after AUM. It
      also refers to Tripura, the one who live in the "three cities" as in
      Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, as well as the light referred to in Gayatri

      NAMAH/NAMAHA: Adoration, homage, respect. Nothing is mine (as an
      individual person); everything is thine (as the Absolute Reality).
      The three levels of Om, the three worlds of gross, subtle, and
      causal, along with the three states of waking, dreaming, and deep
      sleep states of consciousness, as well as the three levels of
      conscious, unconscious, and subconscious themselves are "not mine" as
      the true properties of who I really am. Truly, "nothing is mine."
      Rather, everything, all of these triads is "thine" or the "other" as
      the Absolute Reality.

      SHIVAYA/SHIVA: That Absolute Reality that is the ground out of which
      the others emerge. It is that "ink," so to speak, that is not
      separate from the many forms which may appear to manifest or be
      created from that ink. In the Realization of this, one comes to see
      that he or she is one and the same with the Absolute Reality. The
      Mahavakyas, the great utterances, are seen to be true. Shiva (the
      static or ground) and Shakti (the active or creative) are seen to be
      one and the same. She (Shakti), while one with Shiva is realized in
      direct experience as the one in the three worlds (Tripura) outlined
      in Om.
