Dear all,

In a Kashmiri Sharada manuscript, two different om symbols are used (image
attached). I have seen both of them in manuscripts but have not seen them
being used in the same manuscript. Is it the case that they are used in
different contexts, such as, when both are used, the first one is used at
the beginning of the text and the other one elsewhere?
