|"Each soul is potentially Divine.
The goal is to manifest this Divinity within
by controlling nature, external and internal.
Do this either by work or worship or
psychic control or philosophy
– by one or more or all of these – and be free."
The monosyllable "OM" superimposed on the bosom of man symbolizes his intrinsic Divinity which is his real nature.
The prayer: "tamaso maa jyotirgamaya" – 'Lead me from darkness to Light' quoted in the inner orb, is indicative of man's spiritual quest – his aspiration to discover, realize and manifest the innate Divinity.
The meditative posture of man, the brilliant sun behind him, the lotus on which he is seated and the waves beneath it are symbolic of mystic communion, pursuit of knowledge, devotional absorption and selfless work, respectively.
The design thus depicts the gospel of Swami Vivekananda, according to which man can discover, realize and manifest the Divinity enshrined in him, by cultivating an integrated life, with due emphasis on pursuit of knowlewdge, devotional absorption, mystic communion and selfless service.
"Be and Make" – is an epigram of Swamiji exhorting man to unfold his intrinsic divinity through the cultivation of an integrated life and also to help others march towards that end.
