The Emblem

The emblem represents a complete picture of the system followed in the Shri Ram Chandra Mission. The writing at the bottom indicates that the organization was founded by Babuji (Shri Ram Chandra of Shahjahanpur) in memory of the first guru of the system, Lalaji (Shri Ram Chandra of Fatehgarh).

The swastika mark near the bottom represents the point from which we start our spiritual journey. The swastika historically is a symbol of prosperity and good fortune, widely used throughout the ancient and modern world. The word is derived from the Sanskrit svastika, meaning "conducive to well-being.”  In India the swastika continues to be a very auspicious symbol of Hindus, Jains, and Buddhists, and is used to denote plurality, abundance, prosperity and long life. A common symbol in many religions, the swastika here symbolizes life, the sphere of forms, customs and practices of various types.

Above the swastika mark, the path of Sahaj Marg cuts through varying levels of grossness as well as the mountains of difficulties and obstructions set up by our own selves, the condition growing finer and finer at every step until we attain the highest stage of spiritual evolution.

The sphere of light created by the rising sun denotes the spiritual era ushered in by Lalaji. It permeates the space over the regions we started from and through which we pass on our path of Sahaj Marg.

“Satpad” is just below the topmost portion of the emblem. This region of light, though a very refined state, is but a reflection of Reality.

“Om Tat Sat” is the highest attainable region shown at the very top of the emblem. It is a region of neither lightness nor darkness; it is unchanging and eternal. This pure and absolute state, from which our present existence has evolved, may be denoted as the sphere of Eternal Peace.
