SRI GURUBYO NAMAHA

Artists across the world speak the same language "Arts"

Valmiki says that seeing Rama, Sita and Lakshmana walk, was like seeing the Pranava mantra walking. This observation contains a significant philosophical message, The Pranava has three
syllables — akAra, ukAra and makAra (aum). ‘A’ stands for the Supreme One. Parasara Bhatta, in his Ashtasloki, says, “akArArtO Vishnuh.” The very syllable ‘a’ denotes the all- pervading One. The jivatma aspires to reach the abode of the Supreme One, and to serve Him there. The jivatma is connoted by the
syllable ‘ma.’ The intervening syllable ‘u’ denotes Sri , the Goddess who takes us closer to the Supreme One.
With great respect and admiration for our literature, through our organization AUM LLC we seek to spreadhead the quintessence of our literature which paves way to develop a happy community.
