Om (rhymes with home) is a sacred Sanskrit word often heard as part of spiritual chants and prayers. Its meaning varies across traditions, but it can be considered generally as a cosmic sound, an acknowledgement of divinity, the sound of the beginning of the universe.
The meanings of the lines and curves of the symbol of Om also vary depending on tradition. One interpretation divides the lower curves, which represent different states of mind, from the dot on top, which represents truth or pure consciousness.
The beauty of these broad-meaning symbols is that it allows us to find our own interpretation. For example, wearing this pendant can remind you of the great mystery of existence, it can bless all who see it with peace, or it can simply express gratitude for all there is.
This 1 ½ inch pendant is made from brass with an antique finish. It comes with a simple satin cord, but you can spiff it up with a chain of your own.
