Spiritual Answer — HU

“HU [pronounced like the word ‘hue’] is an ancient name for God. It is also a love song to God. All that we do with the word HU is to sing it with reverence. It represents the love of God for Soul, and we are Soul. HU represents the enormous love that the Creator has for Its creation.

HU can be sung by anyone, whether Christian, Muslim, or of any other religion. It isn’t meant to change your religion. HU will enhance it.”

—Harold Klemp, HU, The Most Beautiful Prayer, Pg. 7

“HU is foremost among the ancient names for God. It is the true, universal name drawn from the Sound Current Itself, for HU is woven into the language of life.

It is the sound of all sounds. It is the wind in the leaves, falling rain, thunder of jets, singing of birds, the awful rumble of a tornado. Again, Its sound is heard in laughter, weeping, the din of city traffic, ocean waves, and the quiet rippling of a mountain stream.

HU is both a name for God and a sound of the Audible Life Stream, which we know as the ECK, or Holy Spirit. HU is a charged name for God that can spiritually uplift the people of any religion.”

—Harold Klemp, HU, The Most Beautiful Prayer, Pg. 61

“Once you come to the realization that you are without spiritual freedom, then comes the question of how you go about getting it.

In the teachings of ECK, we have a very pat answer: You do the Spiritual Exercises of ECK. The mainstay is to chant HU, an ancient name for God. You sing HU once or twice a day for ten or fifteen minutes to spiritualize your state of consciousness.

During the time you’re singing HU, you are saying to Divine Spirit, ‘I’ve opened myself to you. Give me the understanding and the wisdom to meet the waves of life, and the problems, troubles, and whatever else. Give me the strength to meet life.’ This is basically all that we do when we do a Spiritual Exercise of ECK.”

—Harold Klemp, What is Spiritual Freedom?, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 11, Pg. 126
