This beautiful Tibetan wall hanging is of the highest quality and made from embroidered silk and cotton. It features the “Om” symbol which is considered to be the highest name of “God” in certain eastern cultures. It represents the concept that the Divine god and our individual consciousnesses are essentially the same.
In the written form of OM, the long lower curve represents the material world and the waking state of our mind. The upper curve represents a deep dreamless sleep and the unconscious mind. Between the two, a third curve represents dreaming and the thought world. Beyond these three states are the state of liberation, represented by the semicircle and the dot. The incompleteness of the semicircle signifies infinity.
Repetition of the OM syllable as a mantra or meditating on the OM symbol are powerful methods of awakening and balancing our spiritual centres. They are considered to be paramount ways of realizing our divine source.
OM, like Amen signifies the Divine god which manifests in every form of life. OM is the sound or vibration where all life forms “arise from” and return to. Repetition of OM or AUM is believed to dissolve the mind into its Divine Source. If you chant OM several times out loud it is believed to purify the atmosphere.
