In the moment of silence after a bell vibrates its last sound into the surrounding air, there is a sound that surpasses our conscious awareness of sound. It is the still, sweet note that reverberates at all times and in all spaces but becomes apparent as its independent self only in relation to the absence of other sounds and tones. It is the sound that echoed through the universe at the moment of creation when everything that already existed was once again brought into a new and vibrant reality. When we meditate, intoning it brings us home again and again. It is the sound that informs and sustains the vibrations inherent in the energy of love—Om! Namaste!
