The name "Omraam"

In The Mystery of Light, his book about Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, Georg Feuerstein says that the name ‘Omraam’ is formed of two mantras, om and ram, which are well-known in India. He states that:

  • om is the most sacred mantra of the Hindus, standing for the Absolute or the Divine, and the syllable ram, which was rendered as ‘raam’ in French to assist with the correct pronunciation, is the mantra denoting the fire element.

In the autobiographical work, A Living Book, Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov explains his initiatic name as follows: ‘Thus the name I was given in India, Omraam, corresponds to the two processes of solve and coagula of the alchemists: om dissolves all things, rendering them subtle, and raam materializes them, concretizes them. The name Omraam is therefore a whole process of concretization: the invisible, intangible idea that must incarnate on earth so that it can be seen and touched by the whole world.’
