About Omission Studios
How we began
Long ago, back way before Arjuna Ghose received his spiritual name, he was called Mark, and back then he had just began embarking on spiritual Master Sri Chinmoy’s path as his devoted disciple. He was 18 years old and trying to figure out what he was going to do with his life career-wise.
He liked self-expression and he liked art, although he felt he probably wouldn’t make it very far as an actor. Therefore, since Sri Chinmoy’s disciples manifest Sri Chinmoy’s Light as they grow spiritually through his inner guidance, Arjuna felt that graphic design might be a good way to express this Light, through his designs. This was the spark that eventually ignited the flame that is OmissionStudios.
After many years of college education and working in the field of graphic design and web development, mostly as a freelance designer, Arjuna registered the name OmissionStudios on 5 September 2017 with the Nova Scotia Registry of Joint Stock Companies and began the journey of his beloved business. Of course, he’s been dreaming it up in one way or another for almost 20 years.
Who is Sri Chinmoy?
Sri Chinmoy (1931–2007) is a God-realized spiritual teacher and guide who came to the West from East Bengal (now Bangladesh) in 1964 to serve aspiring seekers. At age 13 he became again conscious of his God-realization that he already had achieved in previous incarnations. He has about 7,000 disciples around the world, and many admirers. From the Sri Aurobindo ashram in Pondicherry, India, he moved to the city of New York where he lived for the latter half of his life. In October 2007, Sri Chinmoy compassionately left the body to continue to serve aspiring seekers from the higher worlds.
Why the name Omission Studios?
The name OmissionStudios, created by Arjuna, was derived from joining the words ‘AUM’ (also spelled ‘OM’) and ‘Mission’ together. It was also decided upon because of its originality.
About the word AUM, spiritual Master Sri Chinmoy has this to say:
Question: I am curious about the meaning of these three letters which you pronounce “AUM.”
Sri Chinmoy: AUM is a Sanskrit syllable, or you can say, a complete word. We have, in India, the Trinity: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva–the Creator, the Preserver and the Transformer. “A” represents Brahma, the Creator; “U” represents Vishnu, the Preserver; and “M” represents Shiva, the Transformer. AUM is the breath of the Supreme. The Indian sages, seers and Yogis of yore chanted AUM and they got their souls’ illumination and liberation. Even now, most of the seekers in India chant AUM most devotedly. They will achieve their realization by chanting AUM, the power infinite.
Therefore, the mission of OmissionStudios is to omit the world of crappiness by creating, building and preserving things that are awesome and transforming things that are not awesome.
