Om Gold Plated Bangle
Om or Aum is a sacred syllable that originated from Hinduism, but it is now also common to Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism and the Bon faith of Tibet. It represents the Brahman or the Absolute – the source of all existence.
Its sound is made up of three sacred vocalisations “aa” “au” and “ma”; the three-part expression symbolises many profound triangular concepts of universal creation such as:
- birth, life, death
- creation, sustaining, destruction
- conscious, unconscious, subconscious
- dawn, afternoon, dusk
The syllable Om occurs in English words and holds similar meaning. Examples are ‘omniscience’, ‘omnipotent’, and ‘omnipresent’. Thus, Om signifies authority as well as divinity. The Christian “Amen” and Islamic “Ameen” are also analogous to Om.
In western culture, both the spoken word and the written symbol have become synonymous with eastern spirituality, meditation and the concept of peace. Om is believed to empower you with truth and reinforces a reverence for life. May this Om Gold Plated Bangle make you feel at one with the Universe and bring you profound peace.
