In this absorbing talk, Swamiji does a very deep analysis of the monosyllable ‘OM’.
“Omkara,” says Swamiji, “is the symbol of Brahmavidya. It is not a knowledge to be attained but the Truth which is our own real identity, the Consciousness. Taittiriya Upanishad, Maandukya Upanishad and other Upanishads have explained OM in great detail.”
“Omkara is also used as a help or support for meditation. If you chant Om in a proper, prolonged manner, when the syllable ‘Mm’ gets dissolved into silence, your mind also will dissolve into silence where there would be no thoughts.”
Swamiji also speaks about the wealth of knowledge possessed by the great Rishis of our land. This experiential knowledge made them understand their own immortality.

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
