The primary symbol in Hinduism is Aum and this symbol both orally and visually represents God, or Brahmin. To merge with God, those of the Hinduism faith repeatedly chant Om, or Aum.
Aum is to the Hindu faith like the cross is to those of the Christian faith. This symbol is a part of every invocation and prayer in Hindu. It enshrines all family Hindu shrines and Hindu temples. It is also present on Hindu pendants. It is a mandatory symbol to help those of the Hindu faith realize the unknowable and it is highly sacred. Hindu people treat it with utmost respect.
