What is the definition of Om Rising?
In the Words of the Great Masters
“Those who experience the full power of the syllable ‘OṂ’ realize, this this very moment, the resonance that connects all beings. It is the sound births life force (prana) in the body. The yogin unites his/her awareness with that primal resonance at the place where the soul enters and leaves the body (skull door). A yogin is [defined as] One who draws this subtle, silent sound down into the body, by way of the enlivening in-breath. Embraced in the heart, the echo of this resonance is articulated through the skull doorway, from whence it came, as the endless, omnipotent sound of pure vowel resonance.
This is called the ‘Arising of OṂ’ (oṃ ucchāra). The experience of Yoga is the uniting of pure Awareness with this – the Sound of God (deva). They who experience the glory of that sound are Reborn, in this very breath, as Life-Warriors (Vira-jās).”
- Aghorashiva, Tantrik Master, 12th century (translated by Chris Tompkins, 06/7/2019)
