‘Om’, ‘Ohm’ or ‘Aum’ is a sacred symbol that is known generally as the sound of all creation. According to the Mandukya Upanishad, "Om is the one eternal syllable of which all that exists is but the development. The past, the present, and the future are all included in this one sound, and all that exists beyond the three forms of time is also implied in it."
The Om symbol represents the sound in visual form: a mix of curves, a crescent and a dot. According to Indian dharmas, the symbol for Om is formed from 5 distinct concepts: the Waking State, the Dream State, the Deep Sleep, the Maya or the Illusion, and the Samadhi or the Absolute State.
