Ek Omkar Symbols
Ek-Omkar means "God is One" . The symbol is an emblem of the Sikh religion and is found on Gurdwaras (Sikh temples).
Ek-Omkar is the beginning of the Sikh Mool mantra and the first phrase in the Sikh Holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib:
Ek-Omkar is a combination of three letters: Ek - one, Om - the sacred letter for God, and the Kar - which is a line drawn over the Om, meaning the continuity, timelessness, eternal presence of Om (God)
The Khanda is the emblem of the Sikh faith, symbolizing the four pillars of Sikh belief. It consists of four symbolic weapons:
In the center, the double edged sword, or Khanda, from which the symbol derives its name. The Khanda represents knowledge of divinity and the creative power of God.
Surrounding the Khanda is a circular Chakkar (or chakka, meaning wheel, from the same root as chakra), which symbolizes the unity of God.
On either side, crossed daggers or kirpans, called Piri and Miri (the personal weapons of Guru Hargobind), symbolizing spiritual and temporal (earthly) power in balance.
