Hari Om Tat Sat


CHAPTER 1

The master thief sound
17 January 1988 pm in Gautam the Buddha Auditorium


Question 1
BELOVED MASTER,

I HAVE HEARD YOU SAY, HARI OM TAT SAT: THE DIVINE SOUND – THAT IS THE TRUTH.
WHEN YOU SPEAK I HEAR THE SOUND OF TRUTH RESONATING IN ME, YET I AM NOT
ENLIGHTENED. HOW IS IT THAT I CAN RECOGNIZE THAT WHICH I HAVEN’T REALIZED?

Maneesha, Hari Om Tat Sat: the divine sound – that is the truth... It is one of the mahavakyas,
the great sayings which have been embedded in the hearts of the mystics since eternity. It is not
something theoretical, not something philosophical, it is something existential.

Those who have gone within themselves have always heard a strange sound, which can only be
called the sound of existence itself. It is difficult to reduce that sound into language. Hence for
centuries, as far back as we can go, Om, the sound, has been represented not by any alphabetical
word but by a symbol.

That symbol is beyond any alphabet. It does not belong to any language. Hence the Tibetans can
use it, the people who are writing in Sanskrit can use it; Mahavira can use it, who was using a
language called Prakrit; Gautam Buddha can use it, who was speaking in a language called Pali.
There is no other symbol in the whole world which does not belong to any particular language, but is
simply symbolic of a certain experience that can happen to anyone. And why have they not reduced
it to some linguistic form? It is not without reason.
