The akSara-s for biija-mantra-s are usually
written with a dot on the upper right, like /kliiM/

The dot represents the sound called /anu-svaara/ or,
I believe, also /anu-naasika/, whose phonetic properties
are a bit, well, volatile, or stuff. "Thus", repeating a
biija-mantra might be a form of /naasika-antar-madhya-
saMyama/ mentioned in Shiva-suutra...  :0
