In ancient civilizations, Vedic preceptors told that Nada Brahma is the Universe’s vibration. Kind of a vibration field that’s the root of the spiritual experience and source of knowledge. The same energetic field found the saint people, buddha, mystics, yogis, shamans, priests, and simply said – all those who were open to watch inside themselves. During the whole of our known history, this energy field has been called Akasha, the initial AUM, the diamond network of Indra, the music of Spheres, and many other metaphoric names. This energetic field is the joint root of the sense of all our religions. It is the connection between our inner and outer worlds.
Om or Aum of the Vedas became the sacred word Hum of the Tibetans, Amin of the Moslems, and Amen of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Jews, and Christians. The syllable has been translated into many different languages, cultures, and religious traditions. Still, the creative and transformative power of the sound remains the same. In the Bible, the word Amen is connected to the beginning of the Universe’s creation: “These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God.”
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” It is a particularly human trait to be curious about our origins and the origins of our Universe. How could so much – the diversity of our planet, the vastness of our solar system, the unknown reaches of space – come from nothing? Spiritual traditions from all over the world have grappled with this question and have recognized the profound role of the Divine Word as the origins of the Universe. If at first there was nothing, the very first thing was a sound vibration, and from there, everything sprang into existence, and the material world was born. Western science is now coming on board: quantum physicists have been studying the role of vibration at the root of matter itself. Nikola Tesla said, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” The very foundations of our Universe, of matter and thought, appear to lie in sound vibration.
