When we think of mantras, om is
often the first to come to mind. It is the most important and popular
of the bija mantras. It is known as the sound representing Brahman,
which is the cosmic or primordial vibration. Hreem is one of the great goddess
mantras, representing the healing power and creativity of the
goddess. Hreem is also the mantra of higher
consciousness; therefore, it may be considered as important as om.
combination of these two bija mantras creates potent sound vibrations
that are used alone or as part of longer mantras for a range of
benefits. The simple, Om hreem namaha is chanted for its power to
open the mind to higher consciousness. Another is Om hreem namaha shivaya, which unites the divine feminine (hreem) and the divine
masculine (shivaya). The result is a powerful mantra that may be
chanted to strengthen marriages.
