If you take the first three digits of 3.14 and mirror reverse them you get the letters PI.E (that got me hungry).



In Hinduism and Buddhism alike there is also a sign which in the Vedas signifies the first sound through which everything was created and the sound was OHM (or AUM), and it's sign looks like this:



Now, is it just me, or does this look like a 3 and a π (pi)?



Anyone else who sees connections here?

I see what you're saying. Can someone tell me what this symbol means.

It is the letter of the primordeal sound that created everything in this universe according to the Vedas. It can mean much else too I supose.

Thanks for answering my question. On wikipedia it's gives more info.



Aum is commonly pronounced as a long or over-long nasalized close-mid back rounded vowel, [õːː]) though there are other enunciations pronounced in received traditions. It is placed at the beginning of most Hindu texts as a sacred exclamation to be uttered at the beginning and end of a reading of the Vedas or previously to any prayer or mantra. The Mandukya Upanishad is entirely devoted to the explanation of the syllable. The syllable is taken to consist of three phonemes, a, u and m, variously symbolizing the Three Vedas or the Hindu Trimurti or three stages in life ( birth, life and death ). Though ostensibly in some traditions it is polysyllabic and vocalized as a triphthong, the Omkara is held to move through and contain all vowels possible in human speech.[citation needed]. One important version has five components, flowing from h through a, u, oo to m. The name Omkara, (Sanskrit: the syllable om) is taken as a name of God in the Hindu revivalist Arya Samaj. Similarly, the concept of om, called onkar in Punjabi, is found in Sikh theology as a symbol of God. It invariably emphasizes God's singularity, expressed as Ek Onkar ("One Omkara" or "The Aum is One"), stating that the multiplicity of existence symbolized in the aum syllable is really founded in a singular God.

This belongs in the Religious Conspiracy forum.

This forum is for crack pot creationists.

It's interesting how the first digits of pi when reversed looks like the word "pie". But this is only applicable to the English language.

For "aum" to be related to that (although I don't think they resemble each other aside from the "3") the modern English language would have had to have been anticipated thousands of years ahead of its time.
The homophone relation, though coincidental, I feel is nothing more than that: coincidence.

You are perceptive OP. The circle is the right place to be looking for divine origins, hence why I think it does belong in this forum. I wouldn't really say that the part next to the 3 in Om is the pi sign, but that doesnt mean om doesnt represent pi.

Notice how in the top right hand corner of the Om it has what looks like a circle with a centre point, but only about third (or possibly slightly over a third) of the circumfrence is filled in. This could be a better representation of Pi than the lower symbols. To the right of the 3 one may expect that part to somehow represent .14 however this would be incorrect becasue a major part of the divine aspect of Pi is that its an irrational number, it goes in infinetly. So If you look at the small part to the right of the three it actually looks more like part of an infinity sideways 8 that is not quite complete possibly representing "going off to infinity"

Om represents sound a subtle hmmmmm.......like how tiny uttered in commandos. i do not think theres any hidden agenda behind it apart from the syllable since all matter make sounds of various freq and amps ( id suggest u listen to brownian movement in youtube...it was in bbc a few months back, and the sound resembled a subtle hmmmmm. scripts say its the essential sound that all matter makes and hence they fashion the word creation and existence as 3(om).
as regards pie=3.14 ...the gap between the 'infinite'points which make up a circle with relation to the angle formed due to its radius(the space ignored: since they rnt in a line) makes up this value. its like calculus of different point which make up a circle and its relation to the equidistant point(called center)
i dont see it as religious monopoly since it is in the existence, but yes people use it as agenda to show off the depth to which individual religion has insight.

The OM sign looks a bit more like a somewhat caligraphed or elaborated version of this:



And with a bit of cut and replace we get this:



22/7 nearly equals PI. Or 3.142857 [repeating chunk]....

I forgot alltogether to post a mirror image of the OM sign to show how it resembles the alfa-bet type letters behind the three first mirrored Arabic digits of PI which spells out PI.E
