Pranavadi Samuccharat Plutante Shoonya Bhavanat
Shoonyaya Paraya Shakthya Shoonyatameti Bhairavi
Shiva addresses Parvati here as Bhairavi and describes the process of merging with the transcendental void by chanting the Pranava Mantra. The Pranava Mantra - Om - AUM - is called so because it contains Prana Shakti, the cosmic energy of the Universe. Chanting the Pranava Mantra with perfection is to take in the breath deeply, experiencing it at the navel and while exhaing - letting it with the sound of Om as 'A.....U.....M.....' in equal proportion. At the end of the chanting, there is a silence. The silence has always existed but there is a possibility of experiencing it better after a sound rises and falls. That silence and void is the Truth of one's being. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
