> Pls clarify whether "omkara" is pratimA or not.
> I have read elsewhere that "Omkara" is "AlaMbanaM" and pratika / pratima are sAlagrAma, narmada bAna linga etc.
> There is a difference between AlaMbanaM and pratimA. Examples of AlaMbanaM are praNava, daharAkAsa in hridaya puNDarIka etc. that are NOT kArya-brahma whereas sAlagrAma / linga in the form of pratIka / pratima are kArya-brahma.
