What is the "om" symbol?
A very basic description is that visually it stands for the 4 states of consciousness: the waking state, the dream state, deep sleep and then the higher consciousness which is symbolized by the dot in the upper right. The crescent shape directly under the dot is the veil of reality between us and that higher consciousness. The symbol comes from the Hindu tradition and is found in many things based on yoga.
Om as a sound is considered the primordial sound/vibration of the universe. Chanting Om often has a calming or grounding affect on the practitioner.
When teaching yoga I open the class with 3 oms as a way to center and begin the practice.
