This is the most universal of Hindu symbols and its sound is used in meditation. In Hinduism, the word “Om” is the first syllable in any prayer. More specifically, Om is used to symbolize the universe and the ultimate reality.
Om - the sound of the universe itself. The imperishable sound is the seed of all that exists. The past, the present, the future. - all are but the unfolding of OM. And whatever transcends the three realms of time. That indeed is the flowering of OM.
I absolutely LOVE chanting this sound.Mandala art ॐ AUM ~ Sacred symbol, ancient sanskrit word.It is believed to be the basic sound of the world and to contain all other sounds. The sound resonates cosmic vibration and cosmic light
