According to Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and the Bon Buddhist tradition, the first sounds that arose from the essence were the five warrior seed symbols:

“Before the development of human language, there were only the sounds of nature: waterfalls, wind, rain. Sound had no conceptual associations. When we trace sound farther back to its very beginnings, we arrive at the pure, primordial sounds of the seed syllables.”

“The warrior syllables are pure and indestructible. They are able to penetrate through fear and cannot be destroyed by it. They cut through ignorance and open space; they are the doorway to connecting back to the original essence and to the wisdom qualities that arise from the essence.”

There are five sacred warrior seed syllables: A, OM, HUNG, RAM and DZA, and when chant, these sacred sounds can help you release and overcome negative emotions, problems and dilemmas and bring you closer to realizing your true nature. (www.shambhala.com)
