Come to a seat of your choice and close your eyes. Take a couple of deep breaths into your body to arrive. Breathe deep.
Aum – draw out the length of each syllable
A – represents the beginning
U – represents what we sustain
M – represents the dissolution
Aum is the primordial sound that connects us all – it is the sound that all vibrates to. It represents the three cycles of the Trimurti and Trivdevi, with the Gods and Goddesses representing creation, preservation, and transformation.
Savasana or seated meditation for the visualization to close.
