Meaning of Om ,God & what inspired me believe again by Jitu Das philosophy

There is a great and world famous mantra that you should know, it is called the mahamrityunjaya  mantra, which means the great death winning mantra. There are three gods in Hindu dharma, actually not just in Hindu dharma but in all religion or dharma, which are Christianity, Islam. But how ?well  that is the interesting part , isn't it ?
Let me share some truth that I have learned recently from a man who practices vedic rituals, he studies other religions too. Lately I have been wondering what does "Om" means that god Shiva chants while meditating ?,so when the man came to our house in a occasion, I asked him about the word "Om", which is actually not just a word in Hindu religion. Yes that is true. If you are interested in Hindu religion then you must first learn about " Om". So he answered that Om actually holds names of three god ( Om = Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) God Brahma( means creator of the Brahmanda, the cosmos),  God Vishnu ( the one who operates the cosmos ) and Shiva ( the god who can destroy the cosmos). In case of christianity, GOD means ( G = generator, O = operator, D= destructor), in case of Islam  there is 786. So you can see that there is similarity in all these main three religion. We all pray all three god of same characteristics, but we can not see it. So  when god Shiva chants Om, he prays to all three god including himself.
In the beginning I said about a mantra of winning death, a mantra to pray  Shiva, they say that it is all about believe. I am writing all about this religion, god, Om , Shiva, you may be wondering if I believe or not, or I am just writing. Well I am not just writing about it. For last 4 years I was trying to find all the answers of the what this is all about, why we are all here ? What is the meaning of our life while we drift through the space that has no end, to look up at the sky in the night became a habit, but it made me only sad, because there was no one answer and to understand all of it was never possible for a someone like me who has no significant role in it. But I kept suffering not because I had all these existential question, but I was ignorant of the fact that the we have not understand the weather of our world, so why did I thought that I could know the cosmos. But that does not mean I have lost the interest in all those question, but this time I am not in a rush of knowing it all, but I am interested more in sharing every knowledge I acquire. That is why I opening  my mind to all things from religion, philosophy, spirituality,music, films, to science. I may study Zoology but I am a student of all those above subjects. Thus  I no longer limit myself and the beliefs, I am ready to believe in all the good thing that brings joy, peace, happiness and above all enlightenment to follow toward your destiny. That is I believe in god, I believe in Om, I believe in Shiva. Your religion is your own thing all religion tells about  forgiveness, goodness and of truth, beauty. So I chose to believe in god Shiva. Everyone needs inspiration to do something. I also found my inspiration when I was travelling with my brother in a night bus to Nagaon, when I saw thousands of people walking on the highway wearing red clothes on their bare feet in lines cheering in the name of god Shiva, their joy touched me and I felt that joy and inspiration in that journey meeting Shiva bhakta all along the road. Then I Shiva temple next morning and it felt I got my belief  back again. To believe anything you need inspiration, and its true. So do not believe in something until you get the inspiration.
So the mahamrityunjaya mantra is :
Om trambakang jajamahe sugandhing pushti There is a great and world famous mantra that you should know, it is called the mahamrityunjaya  mantra, which means the great death winning mantra. There are three gods in Hindu dharma, actually not just in Hindu dharma but in all religion or dharma, which are Christianity, Islam. But how ?well  that is the interesting part , isn't it ?
