In the Hindu and Buddhist traditions the sound Om or ?Aum? is associated to the Sanskrit syllable ? and it is considered to be the Yantra of creation. In most of the Hindu texts and also in esoteric Buddhism practice the om is placed at the beginning of almost every mantra as the famous ?om mani padme hum?. As artists we conceive the sacred Om as pure creative consciousness. The creation of the Mandala is for us a process to make the invisible be visible. Contemplating the golden om mandala you can feel the vibrations of the symbol connecting the mind and the Universe.
