Also pronounced 'Ohm' or 'Aum' is a sacred sound that is known generally as the sound of the universe. Om is all encompassing, the essence of ultimate reality, and unifies everything in the universe. Om is one of the most important spiritual symbols and is found throughout many ancient Hindu texts, prayers and ceremonies.
Some yoga practitioners use ‘OM’ at the beginning and end of their practice. 'OM' symbolically embodies the divine energy, or Shakti, and its three main characteristics: creation, preservation, and liberation. The mantra, or vibration is considered to have high spiritual and creative power.
