Mantra (Om Satchitananda Parabrahma)
Sri Amma Bhagavan's
Om Sat-Chit-Ananda Parabrahma
Sri Bhagavathi Sametha
Sri Bhagavathe Namaha
This Moola Mnatra Sanskirt chant was given to humanity through the
Grace of Sri Bhagavan and Sri Amma. When you chant this Moola Mantra,
even without knowing the meaning of it, that itself carries power. But when
you know the meaning and chant it with feeling in your heart then the energy
will flow a million times more powerfully. It is therefore important to know
the meaning of the Moola Mantra when you use it.
This Mantra is like calling a name. Just like when you call a person he
comes and makes you feel his presence, in the same manner when you chant
this mantra the Supreme Energy manifests everywhere around you. As the
Universe is omnipresent, this Supreme Energy can manifest anywhere and any
time. It is also very important to know that invocation of the Moola
Mantra with deep humility, respect and with great necessity makes The
Divine Presence stronger.
OM has got 100 different meanings. It is said, in the beginning was the
Supreme word and the word created every thing. That word is OM. If you are
meditating in silence deeply, you can hear the sound OM within. The whole of
creation emerged from the sound OM. It is the primordial sound or the
Universal sound by which the whole universe vibrates. OM also means inviting
the higher energy. This divine sound has the power to create, sustain and
destroy, giving life and movement to all that exist.
SAT means all penetrating existence that is formless, shapeless,
omnipresent, attribute less, and quality less aspect of the Universe. It is
the Unmanifest. It is experienced as emptiness of the Universe. We could say
it is the body of the Universe that is static. Everything that has a form
and that can be sensed, evolved out of this Un manifest. It is so subtle
that it is beyond all perceptions. It can only be seen when it has become
gross and has taken form. We are in the Universe and the Universe is in us.
We are the effect and Universe is the cause and the cause manifests itself
as the effect.
CHIT is the Pure Consciousness of the Universe that is infinite,
omni-present manifesting power of the Universe. Out of this is evolved
everything that we call Dynamic energy or force. It can manifest in any form
or shape. It is the consciousness manifesting as motion, as gravitation, as
magnetism, etc. It is also manifesting as the actions of the body, as
thought force. It is the Supreme Spirit.
ANANDA means bliss, love and friendship nature of the Universe. When you
experience either the Supreme Energy in this Creation (SAT) and become one
with the Existence or experience the aspect of Pure Consciousness (CHIT),
you enter into a state of Divine Bliss and eternal happiness (ANANDA). This
is the primordial characteristic of the Universe, which is the greatest and
most profound state of ecstasy that you can ever experience when you relate
with your higher Consciousness.
