The greatest spiritual masters of both Hindu and Buddhist paths affirm that the Absolute and Supreme Divine Source of all of us is beyond name and form. That is a good thing because it frees us from having to worry about physical form and interaction at the physical level. Sound is the true essence of the Supreme Spirit, God, Brahman, and through OM meditation we connect definitively with our Divine Source. In his booklet about Mantra Meditation (also called Japa Yoga), Swami Sivananda writes: “In this Iron Age, called Kali Yuga, the best path to self-realization is Japa Yoga (union with the Blessed Divine through the sincere invocation of the Holy Name)”. Namaste.
