OM is ment to be the universal Sound a holy Mantra. Acording to the Genesis of the Hinduism the universe was formed out of OM. OM was the first sound, or the first word of God. One could draw parallels to the Big Bang or the christian “Amen”.
OM comes from Sanskrit, an old indian lenguage of the Veden. The Sanskrit Alphabet starts with A and ends with M. The sung or spoken OM could also be understood as A – U – M. Instead of OM you can find also AUM.
