The ancient Hindu religion was the first to acknowledge and understand the
importance of divine word or mantra for man’s spiritual evolution. According to Hindu
philosophy, God created the world through the primordial divine sound ‘Aum’ (Om). “Aum (Om)
Tat Sat — this is considered to be the three-fold symbol of Bramhan (the Absolute).
By this were ordained of old the
Brahmins, the Vedas and the Sacrifices.
— (BG 17 : 23)
The other religions that came later also acknowledged the centrality
of the divine word for the existence of the Universe.
Says the Bible:
“In the beginning
was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was
God” (John 1:1).
“The same was in the
beginning with God” (John 1:2).
“All things were
made by him: and without him was not anything made that was
made” (John 1:3).
“In him was life;
and the life was the light of men” (John 1:4).
The same belief has been expressed in Genesis (1:1 to 1:10).
GSSY is therefore based completely on the foundation of a ‘unique mantra’,
the divine word that purifies the seeker’s body and mind, frees him from the bondage of
Karma and leads him to self-realization and self-visualization. The divine word that Guru
Siyag gives during initiation activates the divine cosmic energy force called Kundalini
lying dormant in the seeker’s body and purifies every pore and cell in the body and clears
the Karmic blockages.
