Aum… Aum… Aum…
What is it about this sound? Is it supposed to be AUM or Ohmmmm?
I’m a big believer in the A-U-M variety.
In fact, who cares what sound you make Just make something. It sounds good no matter how you say it.
In his AUM section there’s a story at the end, one of those zennish type stories. It goes like this:
Taking as a bow the great weapon of the Upanisad, one should put upon it an arrow sharpened by meditation. Stretching it with a thought directed to the essence of That, penetrate the Imperishable as the ark, my friend. The mystic syllable AUM is the bow. The arrow is the Self (Atma). Brahman is the target. By the undistracted man is It penetrated. One should come to be in It, as the arrow in the mark.
Any ideas, class?
So, I’m not exactly sure what it’s all supposed to mean, but it sounds cool and I’m going to let it stand. Love to hear your opinions.
Now go make some noise.
