In the Indian thought, OM has been expressed as the primordial sound. It is echo of the sound reverberating in the universe, which originally occurred when this universe began.

In its journey through the world, this same OM has been adopted by the local civilizations variously as

  • Amun in the Egypitian civilization,
  • Amen in the Roman civilization,
  • Ameen in the Arabic civilization

The original of this expression, it’s meaning and its significant is the same world over.
