OM Avatars



Dear Friends, Colleagues and Blog Visitors:

I have been on the Spiritual Path since I was about 10 years old. At that age, I became an avid reader and I have been an avid reader ever since. Why? Because I love to learn and grow and challenge my current level of understanding with new information and insights. Regarding the Ultimate Truth of our Existence, let me say this. I have studied the Gita, Dhammapada, Bible, and many other religious and holy texts and the diagram above is what I feel is true. I believe God is indescribable so the best way to understand God is through Sound, called Shabdha and the greatest revelation of God or Divine Sound is OM. This is according to great masters of ancient India who dedicated their lives to understanding their very own existence. OM says it all. Now, this truth is validated in the teachings and awareness of Krishna, Sankara, and Buddha, three holy men of ancient India as well as in the teachings of Jesus Christ (Yeshua, in Hebrew/Aramaic). I have recently updated one of my free e-books on the web for all the read and enjoy.

Here is the link, it is called Refuge in OM.

You see, I have a hard time with the divisive language and some of the Bible's teachings from the literal standpoint. However, from the symbolic side, there is sense and meaning. I believe that Jesus quite literally is an incarnation, or divine appearance of Spirit (God) who/that is beyond definition and so it is easier for us to approach the Absolute through a personality and form like Jesus, but I also believe that once you understand Jesus' essence to be OM, you will see that this Sacred Essence is not just there in Jesus but also in Divine Souls like Sankara, Krishna, and Buddha. Each life has a unique purpose and like Forrest Gump once said "Mama told me God is mysterious". Well, I agree.

Best Regards to you and yours.
