about

Sanskrit - Composer unknown
Arrangement by Chris Hale and Miranda Stone

The syllable Om (also Aum) in popular Hinduism is considered to be the primordial sound, present at the creation of the Universe, containing all other sounds, words and languages. Many religions who have origins in the Indian sub-continent use Om as an integral part of their sacred chanting.

To quote a Hindu follower of Christ, “Among Hindus there is no one central (religious) authority, tradition or scripture in Hinduism; anyone can have any kind of impression and hold it as true… So there is no point in debating about the average Hindu’s impressions of using Indian (Hindu) symbols. I use Om as a musical note or sound. My (religious/spiritual) heritage helps me to feel at home with such musical chants… I find that Om, as a mystical sound or symbol, helps me calm my erratic mind and awaken my inner being."

In this kirtan, some Indian devotees of Christ, seeking to express their faith from within their culture, have continued to use Om, not as a focus of worship itself, but because it draws attention to the fact that something of spiritual value is taking place.
