Science of Om and number 108 ,

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration” – Nikola Tesla

Many illiterate people think Om is religios and sign of Hindu religion. On the contrary, it is the most universal syllable that neither refers to any particular religion nor God. In fact it is  cosmic sound which initiated the creation of universe (big bang theory). But that alone would not have been sufficient to turn it into a regular practice in Indian culture.

To know that you have to know scientific and practical explanation (based on the physics of sound, vibrations & resonance)-

Each syllable resonates with certain organ or part of the body.

For example, by chanting “aaaaaaa”, one can feel the sensation and hence resonance of nervous system in the stomach and chest region. Chanting “ooooo” creates sensations in throat & chest region and resonates with them. Similarly, chanting/humming “mmmm” resonates with the nasal cavity as well as skull/brain region. Earth produces a sound of 7.83 hctz, not audible by human ears, called earth hum and that corresponds to om’s frequency. Time frequency analysis was published in a journal

The Hermetic philosophy of macrocosm and microcosm (as above-so below) is said to hold the key to all mysteries. The Cosmos is mirrored in man the small universe. The easiest way to visualize this is to compare the atom, that smallest of building bricks, with our universe, the electron orbits the nucleus in the same way as the planets orbit our sun.

OM or Schumann frequency.

Ohm- 7.83 Hz

Gam – 14 Hz

Hleem – 20 Hz

Hreem – 26 Hz

Kleem – 33 Hz

Krowm – 39 Hz

Sreem – 45 Hz

An atom and the Solar System

108 number and its significance .Om produces sri yantra

Here is a short clip in which a Doctor explains the same:


What happens when we concatenate (join together) the above syllables into one mantra? We get the AUM mantra which when chanted sequentially activates the stomach, spinal cord, throat, nasal and brain regions. The energy moves from the abdomen all the way up to the brain, thereby channelizing energy and activating the spinal cord & brain.

Following is an excerpt from a research paper which shows the waveform of A-U-M mantra made up of 3 syllables. Following research and linked abstract and full article are self evident-

The Sri-Yantra-Mandala is the image of the OM mantra, the primordial Hindu sound of creation. When OM is intoned into a tonoscope, it first produces a circle. As the tone is completed, the circle is filled sequentially with concentric squares, triangles and finally, as the “mmm” dies away, the Sri Yantra [i].

[i] How do Yantras work? ?At the basis of yantra operation is something called “shape energy” or “form energy”. The idea is that every shape emits a very specific frequency and energy pattern. Examples of old believes in shape energy are the yantras and mandalas of eastern philosophies, the star of David, the five pointed star (pentagon), the Christian cross, the pyramids and so on. Certain ‘powers’ are ascribed to the various shapes. When one focuses on a yantra, his mind is atomatically “tuned in” by resonance into the specific form energy of that yantra. The process of resonance is then maintained and amplified. The yantra acts only as a “tune in” mechanism or a doorway. The subtle energy does not come from the yantra itself, but from the macrocosm. Basically yantras are secret keys for establishing resonance with the benefic energies of the macrocosm. Very often the yantras can put us in contact with extremely elevated energies and entities, being of invaluable help on the spiritual path. Available at

It is stunning how similar cymatic sound pattern is to the yantra, the Star of David at the centre is surrounded by lotus petals, spookily similar to the geometry of the yantra.

In Sanskrit, ‘YANTRA’ means machine or absorber of cosmic energy, Yantra resonate with our solar system, a tuning fork connecting to universal consciousness. Vedic scholars understood the symbiotic relationship of wave energy; that sound vibrations ARE geometry [i]. The entrainment phenomenon, where weak pulsations are engulfed by stronger ones, would create the frequency of OM within the mantra-chanting devotee. The Hindus knew the transubstantiating [1] ability of sound [ii] and geometry.

The efficacy of mantra and drugs for the attainment of perfection has been mentioned by Patanjali in his Yogasutra (iv. I). Antiquity of Tantricism By Chintaharan Chakravarti, in The Indian Historical Quarterly Vol. VI, No.1 March, 1930 pp. 114-126.

[ii] The identity of the ancient plant known as Soma is one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in the field of religious history. Common in the religious lore of both ancient India and Persia, the sacred Soma plant was considered a God, the ancient worshipper who imbibed it gained the powerful attributes of this God. The origins of Soma go back to the common Aryan ancestors of both the Vedic Hindu religion of India and the Persian religion of Mazdaism. This common ancestry can be seen in surviving religious texts such as the Hindu Rig Veda and the Persian Avesta. A major connection is their use of a sacred plant, known in India as Soma, and in Persia as Haoma. From ancient descriptions, Soma/Haoma must have been a very special plant. The qualities of this sacred herb are given in poetic detail, and the love and admiration these ancient authors had for the plant can still be felt thousands of years after the texts were composed.

According to Vedas, sound called “NAD” is starting point of existence of what modern scientist call Big-Bing theory. Sanskrit with 54 alphabets is a divine language unlike other languages of the world.

The human ear can hear only 20 Hz to 20000 Hz. The rest is inaudible. This is why NO cosmic sound can be heard by the human ear.

These cosmic sounds were heard by 12 strand DNA maharishis in their spiritual trances which broadened their sense spectrums.  However our brain can register the vibrations.

When Shiva started beating Damaru ,Sri Yantra and thus Om came in to existence.

Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev , the great Russian chemist and inventor formulated the Periodic Law, and the periodic table of elements.

He was denied a Nobel prize for telling that his table is based on the divine Sanskrit alphabets. Mendeleev, studied Sanskrit at a university in St Petersburg, used Sanskrit prefixes eka, dvi, and tri to name those yet-to-be-discovered elements.

Mendeleev had expressed his appreciation and debt to the great Sanskrit grammarian Panini of ancient India, who had created sophisticated theories of language based on their discovery of the two-dimensional patterns in basic sounds.

When Panin was in meditation, Lord Shiva appeared before him and played his damaru in a specific manner 14 times.

Panini understood all that Shiva wanted to tell him and  captured the sounds and translated them into syllables. From these sounds emerged the 14 syllables which provided Panini with the basis for formulating the rules of Sanskrit grammar.

These 14 verses are known as “Maheshwara Sutras” or “Maheshwara Sutrani” (in Sanskrit)

These verses are just a collection of sounds and if you say them aloud, in one breath, they really sound like drum beats.

14 Maheshvara sutras

At the end of the cosmic dance Lord Shiva the Lord of dance, sounded his damaru fourteen times.

For the sake of the upliftment of sages like sanaka. 

According to legend, these sutras were written by Panini upon mystically hearing the beats of Siva-Nataraja’s damaru (hourglass-shaped drum).  It has been said that the mantra is God in the form of sound.  Therefore, words are an extension of that power. The tantra stresses the importance of sound as a divine substance and vehicle for salvation.  And hence, entire cosmos is in the form of

these sutras.The 14 sutras are (in ITRANS format):















Among those present at Nataraja’s dance was Panini. For him these 14 sounds meant the fourteen cardinal sutras of Grammer and on them he based his “Ashtadhyayi”. Given are the 16 vowels and 33 consonants that are evolved from these 14 Shiva Sutras.

Pythagoras, whose life in the seventh century BC marks the inception of Hermetic philosophy and numerological mysticism among the Greeks. He travelled the world while still in his thirties and forties, studying with every priesthood and esoteric college he could reach and procuring the texts of those he couldn’t physically visit. When he finally settled down to start his own school, he credited the Hebrew Kabbalists and Hindu Brahmans for enlightening him about their number mysteries in which his own teachings about the whole numbers and Sacred Geometry were grounded.

If you visualise quantum reality as a cloud of undulating glitter, each particle is a holographic film transparency, which contains all of the information needed to visualise the material world from that particular angle. This vision in combination with an understanding of how our senses [i] synthesise reality by only processing 20 conscious moments [ii] per second out of a possible 20,000, you can begin to understand how reality may not be how it so virulently appears. Hindu [iii] and Buddhist [iv] texts sit easily in the baffling arena of quantum thought. The illusiveness of material reality is the focus of the Upanishads[v]c.3, 000BCE.

[i] Not all the body parts receive the same attention of the brain. The relative importance is often represented by mapping over the length of the sensory or motor cortex. These cortical maps (Figure 22b) are not drawn to scale; instead they are variously distorted to reflect the amount the neural processing power devoted to different regions. This accounts for the grotesque appearance of the human body in the homunculus, which is a translation of the body’s sensory map into the human form.

[ii]That reality is an illusion constructed by our limited and inaccurate senses is a theme beautifully considered by Marshall McLuhan in the Gutenberg Conspiracy. Penny Lee explains in a passage entitled ‘The biological segmentation of reality’, Penny Lee in “The Whorf Theory Complex” quotes Bertalanffy: ‘from that great cake of reality, every living organism cuts a slice, which it can perceive and to which it can react owing to its psycho-physical organization, that is, the structure of its receptor and effector organs’, and further: ‘any organism so to speak, cuts out from the multiplicity of surrounding objects [and actions!] a small number of characteristics to which it reacts and whose ensemble forms its “ambient”. All the rest is non-existent for that particular organism. Every animal is surrounded, as by a soap bubble, by its specific ambient, replenished by those characteristics, which are amenable to it. If, reconstructing an animal’s ambient, we enter the soap bubble, the world is profoundly changed. Many characteristics disappear, others arise and a completely new world is found.’ [iii] Einstein Meets the Vedas: Parallel Sayings in Science and Spirituality Comparing wisdom from scientists and great religious leaders.

A mathematical truth is timeless, it does not come into being when we discover it. Yet its discovery is a very real event.

Erwin Schrödinger

Realization is nothing to be gained afresh; it is already there. All that is necessary is to get rid of the thought `I have not realized’.

Sri Ramana Maharshi

If we ask, for instance, whether the position of the electron remains the same, we must say “no”; if we ask whether the position of the electron changes with time, we must say “no”; if we ask whether the electron is at rest, we must say “no”; if we ask whether it is in motion, we must say “no.”

J. Robert Oppenheimer

He is far and he is near, He moves and he moves not.

The Bhagavad Gita

It is a primitive form of thought that

things either exist or do not exist.

Sir Arthur Eddington

To say “it is” is to grasp for permanence. To say “it is not” is to adopt the view of nihilism. Therefore a wise person does not say “exists” or “does not exist.”

Siddha Nagarjuna

The smallest units of matter are in fact not physical objects in the ordinary sense of the word; they are forms.

Werner Heisenberg

All things-from Brahma the creator down to a single blade of grass-are the apparently diverse names and forms of the one Atman.


There is no essential distinction between mass and energy. Energy has mass and mass represents energy. Instead of two conservation laws we have only one, that of mass-energy.

Albert Einstein

…Only an arbitrary distinction in thought divides form of substance from form of energy. Matter expresses itself eventually as a formulation of some unknown Force.

Sri Aurobindo

People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubborn, persistent illusion.

Albert Einstein

The past, the future…are nothing but names, forms of thought, words of common usage, merely superficial realities.

T. R. V. Murti

The common words “space” and “time” refer to a structure of space and time that is actually an idealization and oversimplification.

Werner Heisenberg

There is nothing like an absolute time which remains as a reality apart from successive events. Time and space are derived notions, modes of reference.

K. Venkata Ramanan

What we perceive through the senses as empty space…is the ground for the existence of everything, including ourselves. The things that appear to our senses are derivative forms and their true meaning can be seen only when we consider the plenum, in which they are generated and sustained, and into which they must ultimately vanish.

David Bohm

Wherefrom do all these worlds come? They come from space. All beings arise from space, and into space they return: space is indeed their beginning, and space is their final end.

The Upanishads

Causality may be considered as a mode of perception by which we reduce our sense impressions to order. Niels Bohr Time, space, and causation are like the glass through which the Absolute is seen…. In the Absolute there is neither time, space, nor causation.


A theory is the more impressive the greater the simplicity of its premises is, the more different kinds of things it relates, and the more extended is its area of applicability.

Albert Einstein

As in science, so in metaphysical thought, that general and ultimate solution is likely to be the best which includes and accounts for all so that each truth of experience takes its place in the whole.

Sri Aurobindo

Physical concepts are free creations of the human mind, and are not, however it may seem, uniquely determined by the external world.


All such notions as causation, succession, atoms, primary elements…are all figments of the imagination and manifestations of the mind.


Time and again the passion for understanding has led to the illusion that man is able to comprehend the objective world rationally by pure thought without any empirical foundations—in short, by metaphysics.


By becoming attached to names and forms, not realising that they have no more basis than the activities of the mind itself, error rises…and the way to emancipation is blocked.


In our thinking…we attribute to this concept of the bodily object a significance, which is to high degree independent of the sense impression which originally gives rise to it. This is what we mean when we attribute to the bodily object “a real existence.” …By means of such concepts and mental relations between them, we are able to orient ourselves in the labyrinth of sense impressions. These notions and relations…appear to us as stronger and more unalterable than the individual sense experience itself, the character of which as anything other than the result of an illusion or hallucination is never completely guaranteed.


I teach that the multitudinousness of objects have no reality in themselves but are only seen of the mind and, therefore, are of the nature of maya and a dream. …It is true that in one sense they are seen and discriminated by the senses as individualized objects; but in another sense, because of the absence of any characteristic marks of self-nature, they are not seen but are only imagined. In one sense they are graspable, but in another sense, they are not graspable.


According to general relativity, the concept of space detached from any physical content does not exist.


If there is only empty space, with no suns nor planets in it, then space loses its substantiality.


Physical concepts are free creations of the human mind, and are not, however it may seem, uniquely determined by the external world.


All such notions as causation, succession, atoms, primary elements…are all figments of the imagination and manifestations of the mind.
