Dear Gurudev, did Om originate from silence, or did silence originate from Om? Which is the root, Om or nothingness?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Om is the origin of everything.

If it is called the origin of everything, how can Om originate from silence? Silence is absence of sound, but Om is beyond silence. All sounds come from silence, but Om is not a sound like all other sounds. Om is the very vibration of all existence, that is why it is called the sound of one hand clapping; Anahad. It is not something that happened with the clash of two hands. It is beyond space and beyond time, and is beyond words.

Om is the primordial vibration of Creation.

Gurudev, what is the cure for doubt? How to deal with a doubting person?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
There no one solution for this.
When you know that a person is very doubting by nature, then you will not trust everything he says.
Doubt is also important in life, but only as much as salt in food. When it becomes too much, then it is a disease, it is called paranoia.
When it just the right amount, a person stays alert and aware, and does not get into wrong company.
So, just like salt in food, you cannot do away with it completely. But when it is more than required, then Pranayams and meditation helps.
