My first tattoo! The om symbol, written in Sanskrit, has an amazing meaning. It represents the 4 divine states of the universe: Metta (loving kindness), Karuna (compassion), Mudita (sympathetic joy) and Upekkha (equanimity). Each part of the symbol stands for a different state of consciousness, and represents being fully aware of yourself and everything around you and keeping an infinitely open mind.

When one gains true knowledge, there is no split between knower and known: one becomes knowledge/consciousness itself. In essence, Om is the signifier of the ultimate truth that all is one.
