Why is Om Namah Shivaya such a powerful mantra.
Om Namah Shivaya means I bow my head to Shiva. I am bowing down to myself as Shiva resides in all as our own consciousness.
Om is the sound of the universe. It means peace and love.
Na is earth.
Ma is water.
Shi is fire.
Va is air.
Ya is ether.
When there is harmony in the tattwa, there is balance within and all around us.
Aim Hrim Klim.
