OM

Click Here for Larger ImageContemplation of OM and meditation on OM is perhaps the first practice of Yoga. This poster, based on an original painting by Pieter Weltevrede of a Himalayan Sadhu in deep meditation has lots of great information about the OM and suggestions for your practice of contemplation and meditation. Text of the insets appear below. It comes in 3 sizes 22"x28", 16"x20" and 8"x10". The 8"x10" version has no text insets about practice and will come with a separate print out of the practices, shown below.

NEW: We are now pleased to offer this picture in 1.5 inch wide wood frames in black and blonde to compliment this poster. Your artwork will be hand-framed, without glass, protected by our optically clear lamination for easy care, and safety. Your frame(s) will be backed with archival paper and an easy to use serrated hanging bar for quick display. Each item is individually framed to order and may take up to 4 weeks to ship. If ordered with other items, those items will be shipped separately on our normal schedule at no additional charge.



About the lamination: The thin, optically clear, high gloss, polyester lamination protects the poster, increases durability and makes it possible to clean it with a damp cloth. Plus the lamination really brings out the colors of this already vibrant and beautiful item. For those who plan on framing the poster, it means you can leave out the glass if you want  to.

Text of the Insets:

OM is the essence of all mantras, the origin of all creation, the energy that pervades the universe.
OM represents the cosmic consciousness that is in each of us and all around us.
Meditation on OM opens our innermost being to the vibrations of that higher reality.

Tratak on OM
Place an image of the OM at eye level(this poster or some other image can be used) at a place where you can sit before it comfortably and the image fills one half your field of vision. Soften your breathing and relax the body. Gaze gently but with complete attention at the OM, without blinking for about one minute. Close your eyes and focus on the after image of the OM at the space between the eyebrows, till the image disappears. Repeat. Do a minimum of 5 repetitions. With regular practice you will be able to lengthen the time with the eyes open and closed and practice for up to one hour. If taking in the whole OM is uncomfortable, trace the line of the OM slowly, counter clockwise. When other thoughts intrude, gently bring your self back to your concentration.

OM Mantra Repetition
In a comfortable seated position with back straight and head erect gently lower the eyelids and close the eyes almost completely. After a few minutes relaxing the breath and body, inhale completely, shape the lips in the form of an “O” and produce and “Ahhh” sound. Slowly close your lips. When they come together, they will make an “MMM” sound. Continue till you need to take your next breath and repeat. Try to make all three sections “A-U-M” equal in length. While inhaling concentrate on the after vibration of the OM. Practice this daily for 5 minutes, working up to 15 minutes.

Meditation on OM
In a comfortable seated position with back straight and head erect gently lower the eyelids and close the eyes almost completely. After a few minutes relaxing the breath and body, mentally produce the sound of “OM”. Hold this sound continuously in your mind. Feel the vibration of the OM merging with all other vibrations in the in the Universe. Do this for up to half an hour.

OM Japa
On a clean sheet of writing paper, write the OM symbol over and over, till the sheet is filled. Give each OM your complete attention before beginning the next. An interesting variation is to create patterns with the OMs as you fill the sheet.

A Special Practice
On a clean sheet of rice paper write very small OMs. When the paper is full, cut out each OM and wrap it in a small piece of soft bread. Take the bread balls out for a walk and feed them to animals and friends that you encounter. Imagine the OM pulsing at the heart of all living creatures.
