Symbolism, along with Scriptures and Worship, are fundamental to the Hindu way of life. "Om" is
the most sacred syllable often spoken during the practice of any Hindu rites. It is a holy character
of the Sanskrit language, the language of God. The character is a composite of three different letters
of the Sanskrit alphabet. The English equivalent of those are "a", "u", and "m", and represent the
Trinity. The Trinity is composed of the three supreme Hindu Gods: Brahma, the creator, Vishnu,
the preserver, and Shiva, the destroyer. These three letters when pronounced properly in unison
are said to create an invigorating spiritual effect on the body.
