In the Vedas, from an infinite nothingness, the universe willed itself into creation by means of an un-struck vibration. They ascribed the syllable ‘Om’ to this, and believed that the entirety of existence resonated still with the unheard pulsating sound of creation. They took this syllable both as the name of the ‘Omkar’ (causer of Om) and as the mantra with which they hoped to tune themselves in meditation.
If this strikes a bell with you, it may be because modern science paints a strikingly similar picture- the universe was created from nothingness in an instant: expanding from the size of an atom in the fraction of a second. This event is known as the big-bang, and since it set all of existence into motion, we continue to resonate with its unheard cosmic microwave radiation.
Of course, I cannot claim that Om is anyway related to the Big-Bang, but the stories do seem to reflect each other. Yet, there are many who meditate on Om to unlock the unheard vibration in their mind, and step closer towards enlightenment and spiritual awakening.

Many know of Nikola Tesla, the great scientist and inventor, but many may not know that he was in fact also a great mystic. Among his many famous words; ““If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” He was inspired by the seers of the Rig-Veda, and the Vedic texts fascinated him.
