Swami Krishnananda: Chant OM

One of the greatest disciples of Swami Sivananda was Swami Krishnananda, and there is a story that at the time of his passing, a huge rainbow appeared in the sky and a huge flock of white birds passed overhead during his memorial service. His devotees maintain a free site with many of his teachings and books. Just Google his name and you will be given a link to this amazing website. Here is one of my favorite quotes and sayings from Swami Krishnananda: “We do not create OM by a chanting of it, but we produce a vibration sympathetic with the vibration that is already there by its own right and which is called OM. The Sacred Syllable OM is a Cosmic Sound Vibration. It is not a chant made by us, created by us, or initiated by us. So, then, why do we chant OM or meditate on OM? We do this to establish a connection between ourselves and that which exists by its own right and which manifests itself as the sound-vibration OM.”
