Mayan’s Aintiram


The word Aintiram itself refers to the five fold process of consciousness transforming itself into the material world – or energy transforming into matter. Mayan stated that this process could be replicated by humans in dance, music, poetry, sculpture and architecture (vaastu architecture). This formed the basis of traditional, vedic arts in India for thousands of years.
In the Aintiram a major theme is unfolding of letters (visual forms) from what Mayan called OM Light; and, sounds of consonants and vowels (aural forms) from what he called OM Sound. He indicates this phenomenon by beginning every verse of his commentary on the Aintiram (called the Pranava Veda – first veda) with Oli, O’li (ஒலி, ஒளி) indicating OM Light and OM Sound. OM, being a universal sound and light form and not a Sanskrit term nor a Hindu term. These are the only texts in ancient literature that mention both OM Light and OM Sound. In addition, they are the only texts that elucidate the manifestation process as both a spiritual and scientific process. In Tamil’ Aintu’ stands for five. The five aspects are

1. The primary source of creation (moolam – மூலம்),
2. The vibration factor leading to creation or the Time factor (kaalam – காலம்),
3. The order inherent in the vibration (seelam – சீலம்)
4. Form emerging from the primary source through the vibration (kolam – கோலம்) and
5. Finally the end result being the form emerging from the primary source through the vibration (kolam) and finally the end result being the all–encompassing universe.

  1. The profundity of this book is only outweighed by my personal connection to the information contained within it. Most outrageously, some highly correlative information was bestowed to me in ways only explicable in terms of a great inspiration. Now, in having begun to read it one would assume I had already once understood it. Anyway, indica, thank you for publishing this two days before my birthday and, most importantly, thank you for providing the link to the work I have not ben able to find anywhere else. Lastly, the link you provided is not for a downloadable pdf and thus, I am not able to read it unless connected to the internet. Is there a downloadable form available? Thank you sincerely, ~J
