Yesterday was the “Day of Miracles” on the Tibetan calendar. And my miracle was being able to see the new logo for Vasudhaiva Institute by Jennifer Ciner.She did a great job of listening to my vision and thoughts. I wanted a logo that expressed the masculine and feminine principles in nature both energetically in the subtle body and as genders. We wanted it to be modern, expressing a modern embodiment of spiritual/contemplative practice. The flame above the head represents enlightened wisdom/awakening/pure consciousness similar to the turiya in the symbol of OM. The image reflects lightness and movement and has an uplifting quality. The line drawing is a single, unbroken line conveying a sense of interconnectedness. The circle denotes the whole world, since Vasudhaiva means the “the whole world”. The word comes from a phrase in the ancient Maha Upanishad (Chapter 6, Verse 72), which says, “Only small minds discriminate saying, ‘One is a family member; the other is a stranger.’ For those who live contemplatively, the whole world is but a single family.”Welcome to our family little logo. We love you.
