The Buddhist Union Logo

The Buddhist Union logo features two concentric circles that represent Samara, the cycle of birth and death that we are a part of. All living beings are subject to suffering. The lotus, representing the Buddha Mind, emerges from the mire of the undefiled by contact with the phenomenal world. It is a symbol of integrity, purity, and holiness and represents the virtues of a fully enlightened Buddha.

The outer circular band of the logo represents the all-encompassing compassion and wisdom of the Teachings. It also symbolises the unity of humanity through the practice of the Four Noble Truths.

The words ‘The Buddhist Union’ in both English and Chinese represent the bilingual media used to propagate the Buddha-Dharma in our society.
