The Sanskrit words,"Yogaha Karamasu Kaushalam" defines Yoga as perfection in action. The lamp at the center signifies the light of knowledge. The swan is a symbol of buddhi (faculty of discrimination) in India. The lotus signifies being rooted in the practical world but blossoming into the light and the saffron color of the lotus is symbolic of going beyond the outer world to the inner spiritual world. The words "Love, Serve, Remember" exhort that service to our fellow beings is the best form of worship of the Divine. The shield represents our protection by knowledge in the battle against ignorance.
