Philosophy Behind the Logo

The tree signifies the origin of humanity, coming from the same roots and then slowly diversifying with time. This tree doubles up as a ‘W’, the initial letter the organisation’s name, which grows like a tree with many branches and twigs, representing different walks of life. Additionally, the organisation functions inversely to this upward growth, where it aims to remind the people of different sects about the same origin of life and unity they all belong to.

Meditation Program

Meditation is a route with which a human connects with his soul, universe and above all, the Creator Himself.

Meditation

WORK is functioning in the field of Meditation & enabling people to connect with the truth of oneself & divinity.
