Our Logo

The logo is inspired by the Sanskrit word 'pāramitā', which means 'perfection', but can also mean "to cross to the other shore". Through the practice of the six pāramitās (perfections), as symbolised by the Bodhi leaf in the logo, sentient beings can cross the sea of suffering (i.e. the world of cyclic existence, known as samsāra) by practising the Buddha's teachings, which are represented by a boat. Ultimately, all sentient beings can purify their ignorance and delusion to attain awakening and enlightenment. *The six pāramitās (perfections) are generosity, morality, patience, diligence, concentration and wisdom.
