Also known as Aum or Om, The sound of creation (Pranava in Sanskrit Primordial sound). This mantra is seen primarily in Hinduism and Buddhism.
Various interpretations of Aum:
Deities of the Hindu Trinity:
Brahma God of creation
Vishnu Maintains the balance of the universe
Shiva God of destruction.
Three psychological states of consciousness: Waking, dreaming and sleeping
The three planes of existence: Heaven, earth and netherworld
Symbolizes the ultimate reality where everyone and everything is beyond individualization. The realization of no-self = nirvana
