APPENDIX - III 
EMBLEMS OF SIVA

A peep into the depth of meaning of each syllable visualizes its inner potentialities and divine powers. The syllable `YA' placed at the end stands for the soul and yearns to attain oneness with SI, the third syllable representing Siva; VA, the fourth syllable stands for the grace that comes only from SI proceeding it; but its knowledge is fettered by MA, the bond, binding one to this mundane world; the first syllable NA signifies the power of obscuration which causes the soul YA to be bound and obscures its vision. When chanted with genuine devotion under the guidance of guru, the sadhaka rises and snaps MA and NA and progresses forward with the abundant help and grace VA - towards SI i.e. Siva. If chanted during the daily ritualistic worship with austerities due and single-minded concentration, the sadhaka feels rising heavenwards, since beatitude pervading him makes his life livable, enjoyable, nay adorable to be true. Highly evolved souls rose to Himalayan heights by its power and enjoyed the Sannidhya mukti and ultimately Sayujya prapti sides illumination. Mother Parvathi, chanted it fifty lakhs of times and obtained the most honorific name of Jnanaprasunambika. Her concentration and devotion have become models and serve as an unfailing guide to get emancipation. Nothing surpasses, nor stands as peer to this chant of chants that confers Jnana, bliss and deliverance. This holy chant is embedded in the Rudradhyaya in the fifth prapataka of the fourth kanda of the Taittriya samhita of Krishna Yajurveda. It is hailed as the quintessence of the Vedas - OM Namas Sivayacha, Siva tarayacha.
