The sound mantra Om, is considered the sound of the universe, all knowing and all potential. If you consider Om as the beginning, middle and end of everything: your day, your yoga practice, your life, you recognize the impermanence of all things. We inflict suffering upon ourselves when we grasp to the notion that things will remain the same. This is just nonsense. Even in nature, everything is always in a process of growing, stabilizing, and dissolving. When we chant the mantra "Om," it is one way of acknowledging these processes within us, connecting us deeply to nature and all things.
