Om or Aum is a sacred sound and a spiritual symbol in Indian religions. It signifies the essence of the ultimate reality, consciousness or Atman. More broadly, it is a syllable that is chanted either independently or before a spiritual recitation in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. In the centre of the Om, there is a small hole where you can place your favourite incense sticks. Cast in the finest resin before being carefully hand-painted, this holder is perfect for anyone who needs a little protection.
