SANSKRIT : THE POWER OF MANTRA
In the Vedas Om is the sound of the Sun, the sound of light. It is the sound of assent (affirmation) and ascent (it has an upwards movement and uplifts the soul, as the sound of the Divine eagle or falcon). 

HUM 

Hum (pronounced as in our word 'whom') is the sound of Divine wrath. It destroys all negativity. It is a Shiva sound and a sound of Agni, the Divine Fire, through which all the other Gods or Divine powers can be invoked. As Om is the sound of the individual merging into the infinite, Hum is the sound of the infinite manifesting itself in the individual. It is important in Tibetan Buddhism and among the Sufis as Hu. 

RAM 

Ram (with a long 'a' sound as in 'father') is the sound of Divine light, grace and protection. It gives strength, peace and compassion. It relates to the avatar Rama. 

SHRIM 

Shrim (pronounced 'shreem') is the mantra of beauty, grace, prosperity and abundance and relates to the Goddess. It brings about the fulfillment of all wishes, higher or lower.
