The logo of Sambodh is constituted by three arcs and three birds: two trapped within and one flying out. The motto of the logo reads uttishtata jagrata nibhodata - arise awake and realise. The three arcs represent three bodies - gross, subtle and causal, identifying with which the infinite consciousness has become finite.
The finite consciousness is represented by the two birds trapped in samsara, the world of change, and struggling to come out. The trapped birds are a symbol of all kinds of duality: the seeker and the sought, the god and the world, body and soul, good and bad, matter and spirit. The bird flying out into the infinite space of consciousness stands for the enlightened and integrated person who has solved all kind of duality, and who has disidentified with the three bodies as well as the three gunas such as the sattva, rajas and tamas.
