I AM that I AM

A term from Hebrew that translates to, “I Will Be What I Will Be.” “I AM” is also derived from the Sanskrit Om (pronounced: A-U-M), whose three letters signify the three aspects of God as beginning, duration, and dissolution – Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. The AUM syllable is known as the omkara and translates to “I AM Existence,” the name for God. “Soham,” is yet another mystical Sanskrit name for God, which means “It is I,” or “He is I.” In Vedic philosophy, it is claimed that when a child cries, “Who am I?” the universe replies, “Soham – you are the same as I AM.” The I AM teachings also use the name “Soham” in place of “I AM.”
