Om Sign Incense Burners in Soapstone
These Om Incense Burners are as attractive as they are useful! They feature a slightly curved soapstone dish with an inlay pattern of the Om sign, which is known as a sacred symbol in Hinduism, and which is recited at the beginning and end of every Hindu prayer. It is believed that the universe was void except for the cosmic sound of Om. The universe evolved from the energy in the vibrations of the sacred Om sound. The three parts to the word (when written in Sanskrit) represent the Beginning, Sustaining, and Destruction / Rebirth of the Universe (much the way the three main deities of Hinduism - Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva - represent the same concept).
These particular incense burners measure 4.5 inches by 4.5 inches, and they are slightly curved to help keep the ashes contained a little bit better than a flat surface burner. They work well with Indian incense and Japanese Incense.
You can buy multiple incense holders and save money with our Volume Pricing, which automatically discounts the cost of these burners with each one you add to your basket. (On our web site we have numerous items featuring the Om Symbol.)
