Today I created and installed a most unusual custom request, a Sanscrit Om symbol filled with Celtic knotwork. An unexpected melding of cultures, adding the spiritualism of the East to the cultural heritage of this freckled medical professional who crossed the country for this representation of her personal affinities.
"Om (ॐ) is a sacred sound and a spiritual icon in Hindu religion . . . Om is part of the iconography found in ancient and medieval era manuscripts, temples, monasteries and spiritual retreats in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. The symbol has a spiritual meaning in all Indian dharmas, but the meaning and connotations of Om vary between the diverse schools within and across the various traditions." - Wikipedia
