There is no angry deity to appease in Om meditation. Many religions are based on beliefs and rituals used to appease an angry or hostile god or deity. Spiritual Science teaches that Spirit has no ego...Spirit merely is. Spirit is like the ocean waiting for us to enter and enjoy the waters. Om is that method. Om means ONE. Om means all-pervadive. Om confers peace. Even if you do not chant Om Spirit still sends its essence and vibe to you for peace. Om. Amen.
