Yato Dharmastato Jayah

It is a famous saying of Vyasa in his Maha Bharata. It was repeated several times.In the first instance Dhritarashtra told this to Lord Krihsna while smoothly rejecting his proposal to give the share of land to Pandavas (Udyoga Parva 37.09). In the Anusasanika Parva, Bhishma also repeated this line while recollecting what he told Duryodhana at that time ((uktavAnasmi durbudhim mandam duryodhanam tadA yotah Krishnah tato dharmah yato dharmah tato jayah). Same line was recollected and reported to Lord Krihsna by Gandhari in Striparva (17.06). Like this it was repeated several times in different contexts. We may translate it as : act Dharma - thus get victory. It is the ultimate message of Mahabharata – ever great epic. The Poorna Kumbha is a symbol of plentyness and a symbol of welcome to new thoughts and ideas. Hence this logo in its totality represents the overall development of human mind with plentyness of purity, knowledge and Dharma.
