Our Logo

13. IILM is a seat of holistic learning. In Persian, IILM, or "iilm" means Knowledge. IILM communicates a place for seeking and attaining education and wisdom.

14. Our logo depicts the rising Sun, which, in the words of Swami Vivekananda, is symbolic of Jnana, within the universal symbol of the temple of learning. The three elements in the IILM logo combine a book, a swan and a lamp. The book symbolizes learning.

15. Swami Vivekananda has written that the Swan stands for the Paramatman (Supreme Self) Bhagwan Sri SathyaSai Baba, in His Deepavali Day Discourse on 5th Nov 1991, explained that the flame of a lamp has two qualities. One is to banish darkness. The other is continuous upward movement. Even when a lamp is kept in a pit, the flame moves upwards. The sages have therefore adored the lamp of wisdom as the flame that leads men to higher states.
