‘Prajnanam Brahma (Brahman is knowledge)’
The letters, V P K on the logo denote the Tridoshas – Vata, Pitta & Kapha and their respective colours; the harmony of the mind, body and consciousness is depicted by the Shatchakras and the two Nadis (Ida & Pingala); the wavy waters are symbolic of Karma; the lotus of Bhakti; the rising sun of Jnana and the encircling serpent of Yoga and the awakened Kundalini, of Shakti. The Pranava or AUM, the sacred syllable or the primal sound that existed before creation, symbolizes and embodies Brahman – the absolute reality. To sum up, by the union of Karma, Bhakti and Jnana Yoga, one can attain Liberation.
