Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- View SourceThe Cosmic Vibration
"One kind of meditation is to meditate on a
universal sound, like `OM' or `Amen,' because
it's that cosmic sound which will be heard
ultimately through your deep meditation.
OM or Amen are both the same, just a little
differently presented; they both symbolize
the sacred cosmic vibration. That cosmic sound
is to be heard within you. It's not that you
have to repeat it constantly, but you begin
with the repetition so that ultimately you'll
hear that sound within. So, sit quietly, watch
the breath for a while, then repeat a little
prayer if you want. Otherwise just go on and
repeat the OM or Amen. The more you repeat that,
the more you produce that vibration within you.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."

The best way to clean your system is to use sound. Simply choose any holy name you like, and keep repeating it. Let your body vibrate with that frequency. In the beginning you have to concentrate on that vibration within you. But, as you continue, every cell in your body will begin to repeat your mantram or your prayer; then the whole system, the whole personality, body, mind, everything will vibrate on that wavelength. The holy word is like a radio wave.
When a mantram is given to you, you tune your personality to a particular frequency. It's just like tuning a radio. The cosmic music that comes from God is always being transmitted. God never stops transmitting all the beautiful things. Some simply don't tune their heart radios to the proper frequency. Instead, they tune it to the wrong frequency and get atmospheric disturbance.
With practice, you'll be able to tune your heart radio. You will become a good receiver. Only then is the proper communication possible. Communication brings communion. Real communion is possible only when you tune your entire personality to God's frequency.
Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi
