“The letters of the name of G-d in Hebrew are yod, hay, vav and hay. They are frequently mispronounced as ?Yahveh.? But in truth they are unutterable. Not because of the holiness they evoke, but because they are all vowels and you cannot pronounce all the vowels at once without risking respiratory injury. This word is the sound of breathing. The holiest Name in the world, the Name of the Creator, is the sound of your own breathing.”
