Vignana Bhairava Tantra – 90

Meditate on ‘अ ’

Abindum Avisargam Cha Akaram Japato Mahan|
Udeti Devi Sahasa Jnanaugha Parameshwaraha||

The first letter ‘ of the Sanskrit alphabet, which is invariably the first letter of most of the world languages, is the first sound to emerge from space. When it is chanted without the concluding sound called the Bindu which gives a full stop to it and the sound of Visarga, represented in Sanskrit by two dots :, sounding like “aha” or “uhu” depending on the preceding sound, O Parvati – in that great soul, a river of knowledge about the supreme Ishwara flows immediately. – SS.
