The Emblem of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences is a symbolic expression of the confluence of both Eastern and Western Health Sciences. A central wand with entwined snakes symbolizes Greek and Roman Gods of Health calledHermis and Mercury s adapted as symbol of modern medical science. The pot above depicts AmruthaKalasham of Dhanvanthri, the father of all Health Sciences. The wing above it depicts Human Soul called Hamsa (Swan) in Indian Philosophy. The rising Sun at the top symbolizes Olive brances, which is an expression of Peace, Love andHarmony. In Hindu Philosophy it depicts the Vanaspathi (also called as Oushadi) held in the hands of Dhanvanthri, which are the source of all Medicines. The lamp depicts human energy (Kundalini). The script ‘DevahithamYadayahu” inside the lamp is taken from UpanishathShathiManthram( RhadramKarnebhiShrunuyanadev…), which says” MAY WE LIVE THE FULL SPAN OF OUR LIVES ALLOTTED BY GOD IN PERFECT HEALTH” which is the motto of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences.
