OM is the most important of all mantras.

All mantras generally begin and often also end with om.

However, there is much confusion about OM. OM is the mantra of assent.

It means yes and affirms and energizes whatever we say after it.

That is why all mantras begin with Om.

OM is also the mantra of ascent and causes our energy to rise upward into the infinite.

[OM]] is expansive and increases the fire, air and ether elements, particularly ether.

It also gives strength, protection and grace.

It connects us with the guidance power of the inner Guru.
