The 5 vowels can symbolize the 5 elements in Taoism: earth, metal,
fire, wood and water. There are the symbolic five mountains, five
elements, five colours, five planets, five virtues, five emotions,
five directions, etc. all of which have a mystic significance in
Taoism.

However, 3 vowels can symbolize the Divine Order of Heaven, Earth,
and Humanity in Taoism.

Heh he.
