AUM: Vatsala D. Radhakeesoon


A (अ )*,U (उ )*,M (म् )* –
Three Devanagri* letters shine in AUM*.

The Vedas* with a brush refined
paint it as the golden name for God.

Each Letter with maturity unmatched
branches further to names all- profound.

From A, Virat* flows
From A, Agni* flows,
From A, Vishwa* flows.

God illuminates the universe immense,
God is all- knowledge, omniscient,
God is in all, omnipresent.

From U, Hiranyagarbha* smiles,
From U, Vaayu* smiles,
From U, Taijas* smiles.

God is the source of light all-bright;
God creates, then destroys with all might.

From M, Ishwar*emerges,
From M, Aaditya* emerges,
From M, Praajna* emerges.

God has knowledge infinite, perfect;
God is immortal, free from damage effects.

Thus, in AUM dwell God’s attributes,
AUM is wholesome, unfailingly absolute.
