An excerpt from Sathya Sai
Speaks VII, pp. 364-5, By Sathya Sai Baba
The AUM of the OM, represents the Om Tat Sat principle, the “That is the Truth”, “I am the Truth”, “the Truth is One” principle. The OM is the everpresent voice within the echo of the Divine call, from the cavity of the heart. Listen to it, be thrilled by it; that is the inner adoration, of which external pujya or ritual worship is the outer symbol. With the ego rampant and rambling, how can the mind be balanced and faith be steady? Contemplate the OM, the symbol of the inner flame, which shines through the waking hours, the dream twilight and sleep night. That way you can earn grace abundantly.
