BRAHMAN - THE HINDU GOD OF THE VEDIC PERIOD: In the Vedic period Brahman was considered as the Hindu god . However, though it was undoubtedly the ideal god, it was beyond th…e comprehension of ordinary Hindus. THE PURANIC GODS: In the Puranic period it was realized that the subordinate gods of Brahman were more suitable for ordinary Hindus than Brahman itself. Even during the Vedic period it was known that Brahman had seven states (Manu Smriti 1.19) and each of them could be used as a god by an ordinary Hindu. However, each of them was a specialist god, meant for a specific purpose only. They are, 1. Indra - god of dreaming 2. Shakti - god of illusion 3. Brahma - god of creativity 4. Vishnu - god of stabilization 5. Shiva - god of determination 6. Shani - god of status alteration 7. Yama - god of compulsion THE SELECTION OF HINDU GODS: Images of Hindu gods were created so that looking at the idol/ image of a god one could be under the command of the god associated with that idol/ image. However, the method was not very reliable and there was always the danger of unintentional change of god resulting in unexpected results. Therefore, there was a need for a way by which a Hindu could select a Hindu god at will, be under its command for desired duration and change the god if needed. OM - THE HINDU SYMBOL: The word 'Om' finds no mention in Vedas. It is is mentioned in Mandukya, Chandogya and Katha Upanishads and in the Bhagavadgita. The word 'Om' has no meaning and it shouldn't. 1. The alphabet 'O' is selected because it originates from the root of our tongue. 2. The long vowel 'oo' is selected because the sound has to become involuntary / automatic, sooner than later. 3. The word 'm.. ' is selected because it is the only consonant that we can utter with our mouth closed. Even though the mantra is uttered just once it actually gets repeated infinite times. This is because the vowel 'O' would be uttered throughout and 'm...' would interrupt it infinite times. Thus, the word 'Om not only blanks the mind but also gives control over the entire duration of a breath, due to interruptions caused by 'm..'. PURPOSE OF 'OM': 'Om', enables us to be under the command of the god of our choice for any desired duration and to change them at will. Thus, the 'Om' symbol is displayed in all Hindu temples and in houses because it enables a Hindu to select the god of his choice. THE ACTUAL SYMBOL OF HINDUISM: It has to be mentioned that, strictly speaking, 'Om' is not a Hindu symbol because it divides Hindus by enabling them to worship different Hindu gods. Moreover, it is also not unique to Hinduism as it is used in Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism also. The real symbol of Hinduism that unites all Hindus is 'Shunya', which symbolizes Brahman and unique to Hinduism. However, Brahman is a god most Hindus don't know. Thus, for all practical purposes, 'Om' is the symbol of Hinduism because it enables all Hindus to be under the command of the god of their choice.

Om or AUM is the Primary Name of God
In Hinduism, Om is the sound of the universe. It is harmony and the ultimate peace. It represents the rejoining of the immortal soul with the rest of the universe.
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.
