There are three mtrs ("letters", syllabic instants in prosody) in the word aum : a, u and m. The a stands for the state of wakefulness, where we experience externally through our mind and sense organs. The u stands for the dream state, in which inward experiences are available. In the state of deep sleep, represented by the sound m, there is no desire and consciousness is gathered in upon itself
