What's the purpose of OMing in yoga?

OM is one out of the 8 Sanskrit bija, or seed syllables and is the most sacred mantra in the Hinduism and Buddhism. These bija syllables carry the forces of the nature and they hold and resonate the Kundalini force. Therefore OMing channels immerse pracnic life force energy and the Divine in form of vibration.

While OMing, we:

1. Connect to others by sharing our energy;

2. Connect with the Universe

3. Enhance the prana in our subtle energy body that is associated with the 5th Chakra or Throat Chakra. When we generate vibration and sounds by speaking and using our voice we stimulate the 5th Chakra at the same time;

4. Take a deep breath at the inhalation and extend the exhale when vibrating the sound of OM. This action triggers the relaxation response of the body by stimulating the Parasympathetic Nervous System;

5. During the process of OMing we both give and receive the divine energy, as the sound of OM is considered to be the primordial sound of the Universe that carries the divine in vibrational form.
