Logo of the Sathya Sai International Organisation
Based on the inputs received from the officers of the SSIO and after due deliberations, the SSIO logo has been modified recently. The logo has been approved for use by the members of the Prasanthi Council and the directors of the Sri Sathya Sai World Foundation.
This logo will uniformly represent all the communications and events of the SSIO globally, within the organisation and amongst the public. We strongly urge you not to make any changes to the logo to ensure uniformity across the SSIO and its associated institutions.
The logo of the SSIO contains the five human values that form the foundation of Sathya Sai Baba's teachings: truth (sathya), righteousness (dharma),peace (santhi), divine love (prema), and non-violence (ahimsa).
Also pictured in the logo is a tall pillar, called the sarva dharma stupa with a lotus flower on it. The sarva dharma stupa represents all religions and faiths of the world.
This pillar is near the temple in Prasanthi Nilayam (Sathya Sai Baba's main ashram in India). At its base are symbols of five of the world's major religions. The pillar, with its concentric rings, represents yoga or Union with God. The rings indicate the stages of yogic discipline required for unfolding the "lotus of the heart," whose petals are at the top of the pillar. The flame of inner illumination is in the center of the lotus. Just as the lotus plant lives in water but does not get affected by it, so we should live in the world but be unperturbed by it.
Please contact the IT team at firstname.lastname@example.org for technical questions or comments, and for translations of the text in the logo in different languages. This page will be updated soon with more technical details as well.
