The powerful sound of ॐ is commonly written in English Om and what I want to inspire you to do is change the spelling. This is why.
Chanting the sound ॐ AUM has long been practiced as the bridge from struck to un-struck sound. It is a journey that takes us to the other side of our being. Some regard this sound as the vibration of the universe, others the sound of creation, and many the sonic essence of the divine.
