remember we're all floating on the stream of life together. And at times we get in the same part of the stream together for a bit. We're always where we're supposed to be at any given time. Keep being the awesome dude you are! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ•‰๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€

The Om symbolย (Aum.svg)ย is an important and ancient religious sound and icon in major religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism. Representing a oneness with the universe, the symbol, written in Devanagariย and other scripts, is inscribed on temples and in holy texts and chanted in meditation and prayer.

Many Westerners are familiar with the Om symbolย through yoga and New Age spiritualism, which have helped make Om a shorthand for finding one’s inner peace or zen.

The Om symbol emoji was approved in 2015 under Unicode 7.0, appearing in white script on a purple background, like other other religious or spiritual emoji such as as the Jewishย Star of Davidย โœก๏ธ or Islamic Star and Crescent,ย โ˜ช๏ธ.

Who uses ๐Ÿ•‰๏ธ - om emoji ?

The Om symbol emoji is commonly used to mark content concerning Hindu faith, culture, people, and politics. It frequently is paired with other religious emoji in sentiments of more universal ideals and values.

Westerners have co-opted the om symbolย as a catch-all for feelings of peace, calm, balance, being centered, and enlightenment. As such, the om symbolย emoji very widely appears in content about yoga, spiritualism, and mysticism in general, as well as alternative medicine.

Due to the Om symbol‘s popular Western associations with peace, its emoji form is sometimes used more metaphorically to convey “going with the follow” or “being chill.”

Cultural appropriation at its best.
