The Three Matras of AUM in the Mandukyopanisad #287


One of the simple but simply profound teachings of Advaita Vedanta involves taking the deeper meaning of AUM, The Word, and splitting it into the matras of its three letters, A, U, and M. Upon due contemplation of this internal spiritual act, it is seen that all that exists falls within these three partitions of Consciousness. Making this simpler still, the states of waking, dreaming, and deep sleep are applied to the three matras as well, revealing that all and everything in existence lies within the Soul/Awareness of mankind. Knowing this, the seeker can then connect the three matras into one, realizing in the process that by leaving them separate from one another, the soul will wander the three worlds in ignorance of the Truth, unaware of its own true nature.
