Crest of the Trust

The octagon represents the eight main religions of India and the World (Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, Islam). The centre of the octagon has the 'Dharma Chakra’ which represents the common moral essence of all religions. Above it, in Sanskrit, is 'Satyameva Jayate’ which means 'Truth always triumphs’. The doves represent Peace and the lotuses represent Non Violence. The sheaves of wheat and rice on either side represent the north and south of India and the northern and southern countries of the world. The crest thus represents SIT’s Gandhian objectives and international character.
