OM - Om or Aum is thought to contain THE original vibration sound, the sound of creation, the sound from which all others originate.
To the followers of Brama (the being from which all humans evolved), Om is not just the universal sound; but the sound of the universe itself.
Om is a recognition of reality. It is the universe, past, present, and future, and whatever exists outside of that time and space. Om or Aum represents the world around us in time, and the world known by the meditative awakended mind in which time has no meaning.
Om is enlightenment and non-enlightenment.
Shanti is simple word with a delicate sound; evoking and meaning "peace". Shanti is usually chanted three times, as meaning the Threefold Peace in word, thought, and action (i.e. peace in the entirety of one's being).
However in this recording shanti is delicately placed between Om and is considered a chant to open the mind, heart and body to the concept of peace on many levels.
The recorded Chant or "Mantra" is intended to start the process of peace around the practitioner. Listening and absorbing the Mantra is just the start. Slowly the Mantra will affect the mental processes and create a peace within the listener.
Chanting along with the recording will provide you with 108 rounds of the Mantra and may be used a 'quick' way to put you into the right frame of mind for your day, your work, your family or yourself.
108 is a sacred number in Mantra and provides the best way to attune the the Mantra vibration.
