Omkara Dhyana

A complete detailed guide for a perfect meditation

      In the yogic culture, the entire existence is seen as a web of sounds, for which the root sounds are "Aa", "Oo" and "Mm", said together as "Aum"


      The sound AUM is the very root of physical creation. The daily sound of AUM creates balance and stability in your body and mind.

The mantra activates and energizes the various sections of the body, reverberating through the whole system. Furthermore, it can bring peace and balance to the meditator's system, and is known to relieve people from numerous physical and mental ailments when practiced regularly.


Dhyana is a Sanskrit word meaning "meditation." It is derived from the root words, dhi, meaning “receptacle” or “the mind”; and yana, meaning “moving” or “going.” An alternate root word, dhyai, means "to think of."


Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique to focusing the mind on a particular object, thought or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state.

Steps to do Omkara Dhyana

Sit either in the Sukhasana (cross legged pose), Padmasana (lotus pose) or Vajrasana. If you cannot sit down, sit on a chair. Make sure your back is erect, and you feel relaxed and comfortable in your sitting position. Keep your hands on your knees with chin Madhura. You can also keep them in your lap, with one hand resting on the other and sit peacefully.




Chin Mudra

Gently close the eyes and breath naturally. Make sure the air goes in and out only through your nose. Keep your face muscles relaxed and observe your breath while it goes in and out. Don’t force it let it be.

Breath is taken through nostrils and The “O” sounds like the AAAA…. sound, combined with the UUUUUUUUU…. sound, Blend the MMMMMMMMMMMMMM into the end …. are chanted equally or in same ratio (A + U + M) , slowly with the outgoing breath and at the same time vibrations of this sound are directed towards important parts/organs of the body.

When you chant Aa:
     You will experience the vibration around your navel and abdominal area.
When you chant Uu:
     You will experience the vibration in and around your chest cavity.
When you chant Mm:
     You will experience the vibration in and around your throat.

Continue the AUM chanting, keeping it in sync with your breath. Naturally, the cycle of chanting will fall into place and relax your mind. You can also chant ‘AUM’ mentally. Listen to the internal vibrations created in your body while chanting ‘AUM’.

Timing to chant AUM

The ideal time to chant AUM is first thing in the morning. During the sandhya Kalas, around sunrise (5.50 AM – 6.10 AM) and sunset (5.50 PM – 6.10 PM) are great times for deep meditation. Based on modern busy lifestyles can do it at any time and avoid chanting right after a meal.

How long you choose to chant AUM is up to you. Set a timer for five minutes, ten minutes, or half an hour. Once the timer completes start breathing normally and spend some time (3 to 5 minutes) concentrating on the breath and observe the vibration. Keep the mind in the same state, rub the palms of your hands together until they feel warm. Then place your palms over your eyes. The warmth from your hands will be transferred to the eyes and relax them. Repeat this exercise at least 3 times and gently move neck, and then open your eyes.

When chanted AUM vibrates at the frequency of 432 Hz – the same vibrational frequency found in all things throughout nature. AUM is the basic sound of the universe; chanting it symbolically and physically tunes us into that sound and acknowledges our connection to everything in the world and the Universe.
