The eightieth symbol is Aum, a sacred sound and a spiritual icon in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. The character refers to Atman (soul, self within) and Brahman (ultimate reality, the entirety of the universe, truth, divine, supreme spirit, cosmic principles, knowledge). It’s said to be the primordial sound by which the earth was created. The pattern in the background was created by blending the primary colours into the colours of the rainbow.
