SYMBOLISM OF THE LOGO

The lotus flower blooming from the sacred lake signifies the Lotus-born Guru Rinpoche, who is considered the second Buddha; the spinning wheel of Dharma signifies the continuous propagation of the Buddhas teachings for the well being of all the sentient beings and the world peace; the wheel of dharma flanked by deers signify the first turning of the Wheel of Dharma at Deer Park in Sarnath, by Lord Buddha, and it also signifies the sentient beings listening to the nectar of Dharma; above the wheel, there are two off shoots of lotus branches with a pair of swans on the left and a pair of parrots on the right perched on the branches, facing each other. The swan and parrot so signify the translators who translated the Dharma from Sanskrit (Pali) to Choekey, during the spread of Buddha Dharma from India to Tibet.

The Buddhist scripture in the middle indicates the unchanging and ever sacred body of 84,000 sections of Buddhas teachings, while the flaming sword decorated with scarves signifies the Chogyel Trisong Duetsen, who was the incarnation of Lord Manjushri, the god of wisdom. In the centre above is the image of Terton Pema Lingpa, who was one of the five great tertons prophesied by Guru Rinpoche. On the left side of the image is the Dakas & Dakinis, making an vase offering of amrita or nectar; while on the right side, the Dakas & Dakinis are making an offering of blessed food grains. The script on the logo reads as Zamling Kuenchap, which means covering the whole world systems; Dorji Thekpa refers to the Vajrayana class of secret teachings; and Padling Choeki Ga Tshal, means the Dharma Pleasure Grove of the Padling Tradition, which is the centre for upholding the Padling Lineage in the world.
