Ah: The Sanskrit syllable or MantraAh” is the essence of all phenomena, known as Shunyata or Emptiness; the formless ground out of which creation emerges. Ah symbolizes the word or speech of all the Buddhas; the Speech Vajra of the Buddhas. Ah is associated with the Body of Bliss, the color ruby red, and the throat of the tantric practitioner.

The syllable Ah helps to dissolve difficulties in speech. It brings awareness of one’s speech; words are no longer harmful or confused but filled with the Compassion and Wisdom that benefits others.
