This kanji symbol consists of two parts.

The top part stands for “rain” and the bottom one pictures a person who is bowing and praying for a god.

The whole character describes that the pray reaches the god and gentle rain started to fall.

Because the meaning was given later!

The number zero has another way of reading REI. It’s said that this kanji has the sound REI and therefore adopted as a letter for zero.
