ॐ (OM):Om or Aum (also About this sound Auṃ (help·info), written universally as ॐ, in Devanāgari as ओ३म् or ओम् in Sanskrit known as praṇava प्रणव (lit. “to sound out loudly”),Omkara, or Auṃkāra (also as Aumkāra) ओंकार (lit. “Auṃ form/syllable”), is a sacred or mystical syllable in most Dharmic or religions, specificallyHinduism, Jainism and Mahayana Buddhism.

Om is pronounced as ओ३म् where ३ is Pluti, (indicating a length of three morae) (long or over-long nasalized close-mid back rounded vowel, [õːː]), like OOOM, दीर्घ O, though there are other enunciations adhered to in received traditions. It is placed at the beginning of most Hindu texts as a sacred incantation to be intoned at the beginning and end of a reading of the Vedas or prior to any prayer or mantra. The Māndukya Upanishad is entirely devoted to the explanation of the syllable. The syllable consists of three phonemes, a Vaishvanara,[1] u Hiranyagarbha and m Iswara, which symbolize the beginning, duration, and dissolution of the universe and the associated gods Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, respectively.[2] The name Omkara is taken as a name of God in the Hindu revivalist Arya Samaj and can be translated as “I Am Existence”[citation needed].

The mantra “OM” is the name of God, the vibration of the Supreme. When taken letter by letter, A-U-M represents the divine energy (Shakti) united in its three elementary aspects: Bhrahma Shakti (creation), Vishnu Shakti (preservation) and Shiva Shakti (liberation, and/or destruction) Source: Wikipedia about OM
