Group Description

Pratik is the yogic symbol of Ananda Marga.

Take a photo of the nearest pratik to you - on a wall, a tabletop or around your neck - and submit it here! Your own artwork is also welcome.

The symbol comprises an upward-pointing triangle to represent one's external actions in the world (e.g. action as a social service), a downward-pointing triangle to represent one's internal movement (e.g. inner spiritual growth), a rising sun to represent that progress comes when external and internal efforts are in balance, and a swastika to represent one's ultimate spiritual goal.

The pratik is a reminder of our potential in life and a path to get there. In symbolic form, it is a summary of Ananda Marga's spiritual and social ideology.

This photo's comments contain some discussion about the different elements of the pratik symbol.
