What Mac OS are you using? OS 10.2 and later include the Devaganari font (search for it in Font Book application).
What application are you trying to type the symbol in? Office 2004, textedit and various browsers support the Unicode character for the symbol. See this website
. The Unicode for OM is Option+0950
To use Unicode in OS X:
1. System preferences>International>Input Menu: select Unicode Hex Input. Make sure that show input menu in the menu bar is checked.
I'm using Leopard, which puts an American flag in the menu bar. Select it and choose Unicode hex imput.
2. In a compatible application (TextEdit), hold down the option key and enter 0950, which inputs the symbol.
Here is the symbol.ॐ You can cut and paste here from here. You will need to use and application that supports unicode (text edit) or the cut and paste will not work.
