Swami Chinmayananda Thoughts on OM



OM’ represents the Self, which is the Supreme non-dual reality. The Self is known in four states, namely, the waking-state, the dream-state, the deep-sleep-state and the fourth state, called the ‘Turiya.’ All these states are represented in the three sounds of ‘OM’ (i.e. A, U. M), and the silence that follows and surrounds the syllable.
