NY museum to come up with largest collective chant of 'Om'

Press Trust of India  |  New York 

A leading museum here is organising a unique exhibition, focussed on the Indian symbol 'Om' that will educate people about the syllable's importance and invite them to contribute their voices to the largest collective chant of the sacred symbol ever generated.

The Rubin Museum of Art will run the 'Om Lab' exhibition for a month from February next year focussing on educating people about the importance of the "sacred sound of the universe".



In a unique experiment, it will also invite people to record their rendition of the sound that will be used to come up with the largest collective chant of Om ever generated. The collective chant will be featured in a forthcoming exhibition 'The World Is Sound' opening in June.

"The sound (of Om) has been called elemental and universal, serving as a preface to prayers and chants. Om is believed to contain the power of all other mantras and the elemental sound of creation," the Museum said, adding that Om is considered the embodiment of the ultimate, omnipotent, and all-pervading essence of existence.

The museum, founded in 2004, is an arts and cultural hub that seeks to connect contemporary life and the art, cultures, and ideas of the Himalayas and neighbouring regions including India.
