The word Om
(aum) derives from the Sanskrit. In Vedic religions, the Om is the
primordial sound by which the earth was created- a similar concept to
the Greek Logos. It symbolizes unfolding or expansion- when pronounced,
it begins in the lungs, and ends on the lips. The symbol representing Om is called the omkar, and has four parts, representing the four states of human awareness." (http://symboldictionary.net)
