MEGAN GESCHWIND KAYLEY JOSEPHS MICHAELA HACKBARTH NATALI SORAJJA JACOB DYCK "No artist ever combined more delicate skill with more energy and power. His treatment of mankind is full of human sympathy."- J.O. Thorne The sounding of "Om" is the beginning of a transformative process which delivers us to a state of awareness enabling us to actually experience identity with the supreme Creative Principle. ANNA STANS JAMES ARNOLD An angel stops Abraham from sacrificing Isaac at the last minute and he sacrifices a ram instead, as God only meant this to be a test of Abraham's faith. JORDYN KATHMANN ROXY MCKINLEY BACKGROUND ISABELLA LOUTFI REMBRANDT HARMENZOON VAN RIJN EXAMPLE #2 "An icon is person or thing regarded as a representative symbol or as worthy of veneration. A more classical definition implies paintings only." ELIZABETH SCHMITGEN SARAH LISKO The story is called the Akedah or Akedat Yitschak in Hebrew and the Dhabih in Arabic FELIPE JIMENEZ CHRISTINE CHOI ANDREW WERNING JACK BEEBE ABIGAIL MILLER "Prolonging the uttering of this word, both of the O and M, with the mouth closed, it reechoes in and arouses vibration in the skull, and affects, if the aspirations be pure, the different nervous centers of the body for great good."- Fund Isaac could have resisted as he is around 25 years old at the time and Abraham is around 130, but he does not. "Om is the bow, the Self is the arrow, Brahman is called its aim."- Mandayuka Upanishad 2:2 EXAMPLE #1 Om is the primal sound or vibration from which the universe constantly emanates. It often begins and ends prayers, chants, or meditations. It is the essence of all mantras.
