Origin and Meaning of Om
It is believed to have first originated as an ancient Sanskrit symbol found in Vedas from around 1500-1200 BC before it began spreading to its present state.
Om is more of a religious sound than anything else though it also cannot be limited to a religious sound, it encompasses more than religion. Om is basically regarded as a sacred sound and mantra. Yet, for each religion and tradition that uses the sound, it has varying meanings and connotations.
Om, sometimes written as Aum or ohm, is derived from three letters of Ah- representing the beginning of all sounds, Ooo- representing the energy of the universe and Mmm signifying the transformative energy of the universe. The fourth sound is silence (Tangata) which is vibration beyond oral enunciation. This has eventually, metamorphosed into the present Om.
Uses of Om
This Sanskrit symbol is regarded as the root of all human sounds; it is considered as containing all the powers of the universe. It also represents many threes including the present, future and past, the three stages of our existence – birth, life and death, the three divine powers – creation, preservation and transformation, the three essences in one spirit – immortality, omniscience and joy, the three worlds of subtle, physical and casual and many other sets of three.
Om is used at the beginning of mantras and chants like at the beginning and end of yoga exercises, or the Buddhist’s ‘Om Mani Padme, Hum’. It is also used in the beginning and end of prayers and chants like in the Vedic prayers that end with ‘Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti’. While some use the Om sound for meditation, it is purported to have calming effects when chanted. It also helps in focusing the mind.
Meaning of LOTUS
The Lotus Flower grows in the deep mud, far away from the sun. But, sooner or later, the Lotus reaches the light becoming the most beautiful flower ever. According to Buddhism, every person has the potential to become perfect and enlightened, and it is just a matter of time until each human reaches the light. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honour and good luck.
Protect your jewellery by storing it individual pouches or airtight bags to prevent it from reacting with the Sulphur in the air or from being scratched.
Sterling silver tarnishes, especially when exposed to salt air and products containing sulphur. However, silver that is worn regularly used typically needs less care, so we encourage you to use or wear it every day!
