has for millennia in the East been understood as the name of
God, the Creator. AUM encompasses all sounds and is seen as the
creative Word - "In the beginning was the Word and the Word
was with God and the Word was God," as the Christian Bible
puts it, meaning the Christ Principle. In Creme's painting, painted
in 1966, OM is shown in its Tibetan form and as overshadowing,
protecting and energizing the Earth - all within the Cosmic Egg.
