Discussion of Omkaram...The Inseparability of Jeevatma and Paramatma and their absolute oneness is denoted by Pranavam

Discussion of Omkaram...The Inseparability of Jeevatma and Paramatma and their absolute oneness is denoted by Pranavam

The word  अवरक्षणे   avaraskahane is from अकारं  akaaram  meaning protection in an exhaustive way which is the function of the triumvirate  Brahma, Vishna and Shiva,  or Iswara as a whole. 

 Only people who indulge in vilification of Vishnu or Shiva against one another would try to explain अकारं Akaram representing either of the the gods exclusively in contempt of the other.  
Such interpretation is irrelevanant and sinful.  
Here we have to realize that अ  is to be construed as an integral part of omkaram  (अ  उ  म  A U Ma ).  
The dictum तस्य वाचकः प्रणवः  tasya vaachakaH pranavaH  reinforces this idea.   
The pronouncement, Om tat sat  given byP arabrahmam was understood in three ways by great men

ॐ तत्सदिति निर्द्देशो ब्रह्मणस्त्रिविधः स्मृतः  ब्राह्मणास्तेन वेदाश्च  यज्ञाश्च विहिताः पुरा    OM  tatsaditi nirddeso brahmanaH trividho smrutah, braahmanaasten vedaashcha yajnaashcha vihitaah pura… Omkaram  signifies (1)  Brahmanas themselves,
 (2)the Vedas 
and (3) the Yajnaas.

The following Vakyam too underlines the supremacy of Omkaram. 

ॐ इत्येकाक्षरं ब्रह्म   ॐ इति ब्रह्मा प्रसौति
(Om ityeakaaksharam Brahma, Om  iti Brham prasauti ) 
"Om is the single word denoting the supreme,  the Brahma created the world  with the word OM "
Again
अकारो वै सर्वा वाक् (akaro vai sarvaa vaak)  the root of all words is Akaara,  is the shrutivaakya.  
The word is the source or Kaaranam  and Karanatwam   requires power, knowledge and compassion for protection.. and all these are possessed only by the Paramaatman.

Hence that Paramaatman is the word  A.  

U karam represents the cognitive faculty.  
U means the world "also"  

 In the vedic sentence  
तदेवाग्निस्तद्वायुस्तद्सूर्यस्तदुचन्द्रमा 
(tadevaagnistadvaayustadsuuryastadu chandrama)   
"that is Agni, that is Vayu, that is Sun and that is also the  Moon"   here tadu chandrama connotes, it is also moon.   U is used there to signify 'also'(tad U chandramaa).  

When we start counting from "Ka" in Devanagarai alphabet, the Twetyfifth letter is Ma.
प्रऋतिमहदहङ्काराश्च मात्त्रस्च् भूतान्यम्पि हृदपि दशाक्षी पुरुषः पञ्चविंशः
Prakriti, Mahat,Ahankaram five Matras, fivebhutas,  Hridayam and the five Karmendriyas and five jnaanedrityas and the Purusha constitute the number twentyfive and that number is represented by Ma. 
 In fact the Parmatma the Purusha, who stands along with the  the 24 tattwas as above is  denoted by Makaaram.  
So  M---the Jeevaatma  and  A The parmatma are U, meaning that they  are the same is the essessence of pranavam. 

In mathematical parlance  AUM  parmatma Union Jeevatma is the tattwa.. this is the Advaita tattwaa of Pranavam.
