The Spirit Behind All Creation

Going Deeper in AUM

Paramhansa Yogananda defined meditation as “Deep concentration on God or one of his aspects.” The cosmic sound of AUM, referred to as Amen by Jews and Christians and Amin by Muslims, is the sound of God’s consciousness in vibratory creation. This holy, spiritually uplifting sound is always speaking to us in deep, inner stillness. Nayaswami Bharat brilliantly weaves ancient mysticism with modern practicality, revealing an easy to follow pathway to greater joy and harmony with life. AUM is an especially powerful tool for liberation and healing. It will inspire and enliven your meditation practices and help awaken the pure devotion that draws the Divine Presence into our life.

What You’ll Receive:

  • Textbook (pdf format).
  • Guided meditation and journal exercises.
  • Personal support (via email or telephone).
  • Certificate of Completion.

More About Course

Going Deeper in AUM Online Course“When you feel worried or anxious, call on Holy AUM. Pray believing in its sovereignty over matter. Problems… that arise when we deal with inert matter will be transformed… once we become conscious that we are dealing with a living reality behind [matter]. AUM is the living reality behind every joy and challenge in your life. It’s the universal Cosmic Energy that creates, sustains, and destroys universes. AUM is the personal aspect of God—the Divine Mother—who comforts all those who are receptive to Her sovereignty and love.

Remember always Yogananda’s promise: ‘When you are in the consciousness of AUM, nothing can touch you.”—Swami Kriyananda

In this experiential course, you will learn more about cosmic consciousness expressed throughout creation and how we, as extensions of that consciousness, can perceive and commune with the joyous vibration of AUM. Deep inner communion is the essence of all meditation practices. This course offers phenomenal exercises, such as meditations and visualizations for expanding our awareness to the Divine realities that are living and breathing within and around us.
