The Omkara Gita is collection of verses with commentary by Lahiri Mahasaya. In the collection, Krishna answers questions by Arjuna about the Om sound. There is perhaps no reference to any written source of the verses other than the verses and commentaries by Lahiri.
You may ponder these words for years without understanding them wholly, or you may learn to meditate well and later recognise many allusions. Or both. Which may be indispensable, you think? And why are many of these mentions allusions? Because what they refer to (possibly), is not much physical, not all of it.
The source of these renderings is Lahiri Mahasaya's text in the reference work at bottom of the page.
Those who contemplate every day and see a dazzling light like a million suns, are still not in Complete Consciousness unless and until a deep calm is theirs, is the teaching.
The individual Self is of Knowledge
Deep inside oneself is a star encircled with a yellow colour called "the golden ring". [Cf. v. 9]
When you become one with the supreme Person . . . you are eternal and supreme Being ⚶ Complete Consciousness is all there is. [Cf. v. 16; 56]
One is to tranquilise the prana ("breath") at the heart, which is esoterically in the area between the eyebrows too ⚶ One should expand the prana, which is automatically and spontaneously expanded in higher Consciousness. [Cf. v. 22; 25] (2)
The supreme Person is the embodiment of knowledge. [Cf. v. 52]
There is no substratum or nada (sound) in the great calm brought on by kriya. Then all is a void, a so-called void. [Cf. v. 29]
Without Self-Knowledge, nobody can attain full well ⚶ The individual self is the ultimate Self somehow. [Cf. v. 78-79; 9]
Tranquility is a form of the supreme Self ⚶ Kriya is the means to serve the Self. [Cf. v. 26; 15]
Those who contemplate every day may understand more and better as time goes by
The eternal Being is beyond the mind and impossible to experience unless and until the mouth of the Secret Lotus inside is no longer upside down. [Cf. v. 15; 39]
You can also try to lessen desires by calm breathing. [Cf. v. 62-64]
The supreme Person lives at the heart, and is dazzling like billions of suns. [Cf. v. 45-47] (4)
The eternal Being is a Person, sages say. [Cf. v. 37]
Individual hearts are created
In the void of the heart is sound and calmness ⚶ Individual beings are created. [Cf. v. 3-5; 9]
The individual who contemplates daily, shares in forming and building a spiritual edifice
