its a Hindu smbol that means absolute knowledge & all creation. It represents perfection. It represents an all powerful, all knowledgeable, supreme being. It also means divine… energy. Its kind of line Neo in Matrix Revolutions, after he starts seeing everything in Orange glow. He starts reaching that state, that no Human is supposed to reach and it leads to his end or rather his freedom and liberation from a physical form ... to his Nirvana.
The om symbol represents everything existing as one. It is a symbol of infinity.

According to Hinduism, Brahma (the creator), used the syllable ohm to create the universe. It also represents Brahman, which is the collective soul and collection of all gods …in Hinduism manifested into one being. According to the Mandukya Upanishad, "Om is the one eternal syllable of which all that exists is but the development. The past, the present, and the future are all included in this one sound, and all that exists beyond the three forms of time is also implied in it". It is believed to be the basic sound of the world and to contain all other sounds. It is a mantra or prayer in itself. If repeated with the correct intonation, it can resonate throughout the body so that the sound penetrates to the centre of one's being, the atman or soul. Om has so many meanings, it is nearly impossible to describe here. The things I have listed are the main definitions, however if you would like to learn more, try Hinduism.about.com I hope this helps.

It represents harmony and peace. It is from hinduism
Om (or aum) is a syllable used in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. It typically translates to "sound", and it often referred to as the sound of God, or the sound of the univer…se. It is often used in matras and holy texts. In his discussion of the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum" the Dalai Lama states that OM, is composed of three letters, A, U, and M, which symbolize the practitioner's impure body, speech, and mind; they also symbolize the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha
The Lambda symbol- resembling the letter A without the horizontal bar is associated with Lesbianism in some circles.
OM as us hindus believe is a universal sound. When the world was being created by lord vishnu, lord Shiv and lord Bhrama then all you could hear was Ommmmm. Om was then used w…hen you pray to represent the unity or strength of the sound. Your body is made of chakras and this sound aligns the chakras which helps find you innder peace and self, which is why you say om while meditating or praying... hope this answers you question nfjn..
You could be highly analytical about it and say that it is about this or that, but for the most part, it's a representation of Hinduism and of the relation between God and his… creation (i.e. people) as it is implied to be the rope between God and his children, but those who are not Hindu, generally wear it because it has pretty much the same peaceful connotations as a Peace Sign.
Because they have no creativity and want to look spiritual.
