sah = "that" and aham = "I"
So'hum or rather So'ham (pronounced sohum) is an ancient Vedic mantra that when translated means "I am That" or more loosely
"I am one with the universe"
This beautiful universal mantra is chanted in rhythm with the breath, and aligns the micro with the macrocosm.
The inhalation of breath makes the subtle sound of 'So', and the exhalation of breath creating the sound 'Hum', hence 'SoHum'.
