Buddhists say that our sense of self is nothing but a mere illusion. You can also connect with the Universe by not trying to fight it, which is at the core of religion of Taoism (see this and this). Nowadays, most people are aware that matter isn’t created nor destroyed but only transformed. The first representation of this symbol can be found in the “Upanishads” which are ancient Hindu texts that are part of the “Vedas”.

The sound Om (or Aum) contains 3 sounds: A-U-M. A few examples would be the three worlds (the Earth, the Atmosphere and Heaven) and the three qualities of matter (goodness, passion and darkness). The three worlds, all living beings and ourselves are all part of Brahman. The Om symbol has also everything to do with selflessness, on which I’ll write in a future article.

The symbol of Ohm consists of 5 parts: 3 curves, 1 semicircle, and 1 dot.

Ohm is considered the most sacred and famous mantra. So we are, basically, made of star dust. We are physically the Universe and our actions influence it directly. This idea that our souls are connected to the Universe has become somewhat popular.

The views on Atman vary wildly between the three religions, as Hindus and Jains view it as somethings that leaves the body when you die to reach another one according to your karma. Needless to say that she, indeed, always seems sad and miserable. Om is vague and nebulous and can mean almost anything and is based around the rule of threes.

It's meant to be spoken at the beginning and end of prayers, meditations, and chants in order to clear away spiritual obstacles and to reaffirm the intentions of the rite once it's over.

Basically, what you do doesn’t matter as long as you believe it to be the right thing and you do it in a selfless way. Brahman, in Indian religions, is the ultimate reality.

The Dream State: The Middle curve which lies between the first two curves, represents the dream state. Ohm is believed to have the same frequency as the Universe.
