Mantra: Om

                                                                  Q. 'OM' is chanted in Vedic sacrifices. What does the term refer to? Are all religious sacrifices performed for Lord Vishnu first?

                                                                  The 'om' or omkara is a sound representation of the Supreme Lord, specifically His Brahman feature. It is an address to the Supreme Lord. Yes, the ultimate enjoyer of all sacrifices is Lord Krishna, or Lord Vishnu, and this is confirmed throughout the Vedas. For instance, in the Rg Vedas it is mentioned, Om tad visnoh paramam padam (Rg Veda 1.22.20).
