Also Lateinos has the number six hundred and sixty-six, and it is a very probable solution, this being the name of the last kingdom (of the four seen by Daniel; p. 71).
Lateinos means Latin Kingdom and represents the Roman Empire that ruled over the whole world at that time.
"The mark of the beast then symbolic of allegiance to Rome. Rev. 13:17 implies that those without the mark were prevented from buying and selling. Now Roman coins generally bare the image and nature of the current emperor. Refusal to use such coins at least would inhibit severely one’s ability to buy and sell in Asia Minor… The Zealots, who rebelled against Rome in 66-70 A.D., refused to carry, look at, or manufacture coins bearing any sort of image (p. 96)."
"You shall have no other gods besides Me... Do not make a sculpted image or any likeness of what is in the heavens above..."
It is also a prohibition against making or possessing objects that one or other may bow down to or serve, including any artistic representations of God or symbols thereof, including crucifixes, or any sulpture of a human being.

Well, I been doing some light researching on the Christian mark of the beast today. I'm not so sure the Hindu and Christian marks can really be tied together based upon where the mark's rest on the body. Hinduism is much more peacfull then Christianity.
Om represents the only reality. Knowledge of this one reality would most certainly be detremental to the church. To me that knowledge would be a far tastier fruit than the one Adam ate in the Garden of Eden. I think it may be a means of hindering knowledge, which "God" loves to do.

The mark of the beast will be given to all, rich / poor/ free / slave, and to refuse is to die here in this life. To accept it is to live this life and suffer eternal agony of torment in the next. Its a stark choice between God or the Beast - as simple as that and its all about buying and selling, not knowledge or any thing like that at all.
The mark is said to be EITHER in the right hand or on the forehead...not both.
Me, well any one trys to get the mark on me had better come well prepared...
