Definitions

Words like “Om” have become a part of our language. We use them so often that it is easy to lose touch with the true meaning and essence. Periodically I revisit the definitions to enhance and enliven my practice, my understanding. The following definitions came to me through the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda.

Aum or Om: The basis of all sound; universal symbol-word for God. The all-pervading sound emanating from Cosmic Vibration-the voice of all creation, or of God.

Christ Consciousness: Consciousness of Spirit as immanent in every unit of vibratory creation.

Cosmic Consciousness: Consciousness of Spirit transcending finite creation.

Satsanga: Fellowship with man by appreciation; fellowship with God by meditation.
