Crowning the emblem is the line "Tamso Ma Jyotir Gamaya" 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
