Religious symbols are used in various religions to represent a variety of things. In Christianity, the fish is often used as an early symbol for Christianity and can be found in many Catholic churches or cathedrals. The cross is also common in Christian symbolism with its meaning being “the instrument of death that brings life”. In Hinduism, Om (Aum) represents the universe and all there is. It is considered sacred and chanted before meditation sessions or yoga practice amongst Hindus.
