CHINMAYA VIDYALAYA EMBLEM

Its Significance

The Chinmaya Vidyalaya has for its emblem, the lamp and the ‘Hamsa’ bird. In the light of the Scriptures (represented by the lamp) the discriminative power of the human intellect (represented by the Hamsa bird) is to be developed. Vedic tradition describes Hamsa as a bird that can drink milk alone from a mixture of milk and water. The human intellect with its discriminative power must be able to discriminate between Spirit and matter and must come to enjoy the spiritual essence in the world of names and forms. Thus the emblem indicates that the function of the Mission is to help people in developing ethical values and cultivating in them discriminative intellect.
