SJC Logo

The SJC Logo comprises an eight petal lotus yantra of crimson red (satva guna) petals in the eight karmic directions with each petal being an offering made of pure devotion (bhakti – devotional ecstatic love) to the digpala (deities of the directions), so that we may be released on the karmic bondage. The deities are –

Direction Paper Devatä Sun/Soul
East Top/Up Indra Sürya
South-East Top Right Agni Ravi
South Right Yama Vivasvan
South-West Bottom Right Raksasa Bhaga
West Bottom/Down Varuna Varuna
North-West Bottom Left Mitra Mitra
North Left Kubera Äditya
North-East Top Left Siva Vishnu

This is the inner pedestal of the inner heart chakra (anahata chakra) while the outward is the twelve petal lotus comprising the twelve sun signs.

Sri Jagannath, the lord of the Universe is the paramatma in the center witnessing all the little games and frolic (lila) going on with each of the creation. May we have His sight to witness all the events of the universe as they unfold.

Jyotiṣa as a subject is very vast. Firstly, why is the subject called Jyotiṣa? Why was it not given some other name? When we talk of Jyotiṣa, it is the name of the Sun God, one of the names of the Sun. As a Sun God is Jyotiṣa, so you are supposed to be like that Sun, shining bright. Where you go, the Sun must shine. You have to give light where there is darkness.
