The DAV Mantra

10 Principles of Arya Samaj

  1. God is the efficient cause of all true knowledge and all that is known through knowledge.
  2. God is existent, intelligent and blissful. He is formless, omniscient, just, merciful, unborn, endless, unchangeable, beginning-less, unequalled, the support of all, the master of all, omnipresent, immanent, un-aging, immortal, fearless, eternal and holy, and the maker of all. He alone is worthy of being worshiped.
  3. The Vedas are the scriptures of all true knowledge. It is the paramount duty of all Aryas to read them, teach them, recite them and to hear them being read.
  1. One should always be ready to accept truth and to renounce untruth.
  2. All acts should be performed in accordance with Dharma that is, after deliberating what is right and wrong.
  3. The prime object of the Arya Samaj is to do good to the world, that is, to promote physical, spiritual and social good of everyone.
  4. Our conduct towards all should be guided by love, righteousness and justice.
  1. We should dispel Avidya (ignorance) and promote Vidya (knowledge).
  2. No one should be content with promoting his/her good only; on the contrary, one should look for his/her good in promoting the good of all.
  3. One should regard oneself under restriction to follow the rules of society calculated to promote the well being of all, while in following the rules of individual welfare all should be free.

The College Emblem

Crowning the emblem is the line “Tamso Ma JyotirGamaya” which is the part of a three line Vedic Incantation. This has been taken from the Brahadaranyaka Upanishad which forms an intrinsic part of the Yajur Veda. It is a prayer to our supreme creator to enlighten and illumine our minds thereby blessing us with the power to distinguish between right and wrong, good and evil.

Just as the Sun enables an evolution from a world of darkness to light, similarly the Light House shown in the emblem depicts how the power of education leads us from a state of avidya to vidya or from ignorance to knowledge. The burgeoning magnificence of the Light House, the stellar brightness of the rays reaching afar further underscores the transforming potential of quality education.

Our College endeavors to strike a perfect poise between antiquity and contemporaneity, convention and modernity. Our enterprise is to create an amalgam of tradition and technology. We strive to disseminate education in consonance with upcoming trends, global challenges, and topical necessities never losing sight of truth, correct knowledge and righteousness. Education for us is a never-ending process of reaching out, illuminating the deepest niche in the minds of the youth of today. Like the magnificent rays of Light, education for us symbolizes an undying quest for knowledge towards the pursuit of excellence.
