This is the most universal of Hindu symbols and its sound is used in meditation. In Hinduism, the word “Om” is the first syllable in any prayer. More specifically, Om is used to symbolize the universe and the ultimate reality. Some people say that this symbol represents the three aspects of God: the Brahma (A), the Vishny (U) and the Shiva (M).
Song-inspired There’s a song by We Are The Ocean called “Before I Die”. This line is one from the chorus. “Take the time to enjoy all the moments. Don’t waste your life, next thing is all over. Before I Die, I’ll make sure I’m alive.” Those lines remind me that, no one will live our lives for us. And we have only now, there’s no past and no future at this moment. So it’s priceless as it is.
