I like this GIF because not only does it show the power and eminence of our Lord but also it has a nice kitschy Nineties feel to it. Har har Mahadev!
AUM has four steps A…U….M and the last one silent
A = Physical plane , wake-state of mind, Beginning,Brahmaa,
U = Astral Plane, dream state of mind, Manifestation,Vishnu,
M = Causal Plane, dream-less state , Destruction,Rudra,
Fourth unspoken sound = Turiya, beyond universe, Enlightened state
AUM is a great mantra. It is a Sagun Mantra, Nirgun Mantra and Beeja Mantra alll in One
Recitation of Aum brings peace and happiness, and finally Enlightenment

‘Unknowable and constant, It should be realised in one form only. The Self is free from taint, beyond the akasa, birthless, infinite and unchanging.’
