Osu is incredibly intrigued by ancient books and has amassed a very impressive collection of rare, vintage books. His collection is locked in a fire-proof safe room and insured for several million dollars. Osu travels the globe attending private auctions and visiting libraries in search of more books for his collection. He is the most intellectual person anyone could ever imagine. Unfortunately, Osu does not talk much and has little interest in people. He lives alone with his border collie, Caesar, and rarely entertains guests. He finds most people unworthy of his company.

What does Om mean?
In Hinduism, Om (also spelled Aum) is a Hindu sacred sound that is considered the greatest of all mantras. The syllable Om is composed of the three sounds a-u-m (in Sanskrit, the vowels a and u combine to become o) and the symbol's threefold nature is central to its meaning. It represent several important triads:
* The three worlds - earth, atmosphere, and heaven
* The three major Hindu gods - Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva
* The three sacred Vedic scriptures - Rg, Yajur, and Sama
Thus Om mystically embodies the essence of the entire universe. This meaning is further deepened by the Indian philosophical belief that God first created sound and the universe arose from it. As the most sacred sound, Om is the root of the universe and everything that exists and it continues to hold everything together.

"Om Namah Shivaya mantra is sung by devotees in prayers and recited by yogis in meditation. It is associated with qualities of prayer, divine-love, grace, truth, and blissfulness.Traditionally, it is accepted to be a powerful healing mantra beneficial for all physical and mental ailments. Soulful recitation of this mantra brings peace to the heart and joy to the [Ātman] or soul. Many Hindu teachers consider that the recitation of these syllables is sound therapy for the body and nectar for the Ātman. The nature of the mantra is the calling upon the higher self; it is the calling upon Shiva, the destroyer deity, to aid in the death (destruction of ego) and rebirth achieved during meditation. This is generally accepted within Hinduism for mantras and chants to different gods as well, which are all seen as different aspects of the higher self."- Wikipedia
