    The Aum symbol represents the Universe and the ultimate reality. It is important to Hindus because they believe that the essence of the vedas is enshrined in the word Aum. Phoebe

      Hey Helena,
      Lovely to hear from you 🙂
      This is what I found out about the spelling of the Aum/Om symbol:
      The “AUM” symbol (or OM – the symbol in the center) symbolizes the Universe and the ultimate reality. It is the most important Hindu symbols. At the dawn of creation, from emptiness first emerged a syllable consisting of three letters – A-U-M (often written as OM). OM is the short form of AUM and is usually used for chanting. Let me know if you find any other interesting information about the spelling/pronunciation.
