OM的意涵與如何正確唱誦?

Updated: May 8


相信大家上瑜伽課時,常常會唱誦OM,但是其背後的意涵,以及正確的唱法是否有所了解呢?


瑜伽古籍《曼都卡奧義書》第一句:「Hari OM. 整個宇宙是OM。接下來的篇章都是在講述OM。過去、現在和未來正是OM,其超越時間、空間和一切因果緣起。」


斯瓦米拉瑪曾說:「OM是一個代表所有『不同意識階段』的音節和聲音。」至於有哪些意識階段,簡單來說有四個:清醒、夢境、深層睡眠以及超覺意識。每個階段在《曼都卡奧義書》都有描述,希望有機會再跟大家於另一篇文章詳述。(註一)


要如何唱誦呢?OM分成三個音節A、U和M。往往大家會把A拉得很長,M就沒氣了,但其實M要長一些,慢慢淡入寂靜。以下的影片是由我的瑜伽上師Prasad老師示範和講解如何正確唱誦。


許多研究都發現,唱誦OM可以有效降低血壓和心跳,其中有篇研究建議要有最佳的效果,必須每天唱誦至少五分鐘。(註二)


感謝上師願意讓我用他的影片,加以中文字幕,在此同大家分享:)


It's very common that we chant OM in yoga classes but do we really understand the meaning of OM and how to chant OM correctly?


Mandukya Upanishad, first verse:

"Hari OM. The entire universe is the syllable Om. The following is the exposition of Om. Everything in the past, present and future is verily OM. That which is beyond time, space and causation is also Om."


Swami Rama once said in his book, Enlightenment without God, " OM is the syllable and sound that represents all levels of consciousness." In short, there are waking, dreaming, deep sleep and transcendental states.


Apart from spirituality, there are also many health benefits by chanting Om. Many researches have shown that the blood pressure and heart rate can be lowered by regular Om chanting along with meditation. In one paper, it specifically suggests to chant Om at least 5 mins every day for health benefits*


Below video is from my Guru Prasad to explain and demonstrate how to chant Om properly. Many thanks to my Guru for allowing me to share his video with addition of subtitle in Chinese.
