OM As Object of Meditation

We have 5 sense organs through which we get the knowledge. These sense organs need the presence of mind to acquire this knowledge.

The process of meditation requires the concentration of mind on a particular object. But the control of mind is very difficult. This difficulty can be solved if we select "AUM" as an object or target for the concentration in meditation.

AUM can be seen through the eyes, heard by the ears and chanted via tongue. It is somewhat simpler to concentrate on the above 3 sense organs, so it is easy to concentrate the mind directly on the object. This is achieved by fixing AUM as a target for meditation on which 3 sense organs are focused. In addition to this the chanting of AUM has tranquilizing effect on the mind, which helps concentrate easily.
