“AH HO!!!! There is no greater happiness and joy than relaxing in our own natural state of mind, our own true nature! The syllable AH symbolizes the great emptiness that is pure from the beginning. In the inner tantras of Vajrayana, HO always symbolizes the expression of joy and happiness. This is the same in every country, even in different languages to some degree. It is an expression of joy from the primordial sound system.
AH HO means to relax in the natural rigpa state of the great true nature, radiating unconditional love, compassion, and wisdom throughout the universe to ourselves and to all beings. This activity is great joy; it is the source of great happiness.”
