Sarva Dharma Sama Bhava is an Indian concept embodying the equality of all religions. The concept was embraced by Shri Ramakrishna and the inspiration has been drawn from his idea of a Universal Religion based on the synthesis of spiritual beliefs. He, after practising Hinduism, Christianity, and Islam boldly, declared the oneness of different religions – based on his profound realization of the ultimate reality. He recognized the differences among religions but held the view that in spite of these differences every religion has an essential core of spirituality which constitutes the common ground of all religions. This harmony of religion is the spirit of the Foundation. The logo depicts nine different religions leading to one religion –the Religion of Humanity.
