Chanting Om saves a person from many diseases. He becomes free from several worries. It gives all round prosperity if it is cast or fixed at the main gate of house, shop, office and on Pooja sthan. Hindus cast the auspicious mark of om at their houses, Sikhs (>- Omkar), Christians (3- Cross) and Muslims cast the auspicious mark of (e- Moon and Stars) on their houses. This is an age old practice.
Four fingers and a thumb of a hand symbolize the five elements. The Yantra with the auspicious marks of Swastik and Om proves to be very auspicious. This is the auspicious mark of Jains. This creates a sense of altruism in a man and renders wealth and prosperity. It is unique among all the Yantras.

Contemplation of God
Lord Krishna has said in Geeta that four kinds of people take shelter of God:
- 1. Those who are distressed and afflicted. To get rid of afflictions.
- 2. Those who have curiosity to know the God.
- 3. Those who need wealth for mundane affairs.
- 4. Those who possess the knowledge of Ultimate Truth.
Worship of God to get desires fulfilled is called devotion with an ulterior motive (Sakam Bhakti). Devotion in real terms is called Nishkama Bhakti and there is no place of any gain in it. One, who is wise and spends his time in worship and spiritual exercises, is the most superior, because I am the most favourite of him and he is the most favourite of mine. People having financial desires take shelter of deities and adopt the particular methods and manners of worship according to their nature. They get their desires fulfilled by worshipping particular deities. But the reality is that all these desires are fulfilled by me. Those who worship deities go to Devalok, but those devoted to me come to my Paramadham”.
One, who has never been moved by hearing the Katha of the lord, should be considered to be as hard as stone. Sins of the people, committed whether in this life or in the previous ones, are warded off by hearing the Leelas of the lord. There is no way better than adopting what the lord says in his Leelas to get rid of the sins and hurdles in one’s life. One can know the importance of Vibhooti, i.e. magnificence Roopa, name and merits of the lord only if he surrenders to Him with devotion.
The man can attain Moksha i.e. Parama Dham of lord Krishna only by worshipping Him lifelong, particularly at the time of his death. Rites performed with Satoguna, according to the scriptures, purify the heart of a man and paves the way for him to heaven. People who perform rites with Rajoguna cannot have this opportunity. Ignorant (Tamoguni) people fall to lower Yonis. Only the Satoguni people can contemplate lord Krishna and
