Swami Jnanananda explained the symbol Brahmanda Chakra in a lecture on the philosophy of Yoga: "Let the only Absolute Divine and therefore the divine world of Truth and Knowledge, Unity and Love be our individual as well as our social ideal. Let the Divine Reality and therefore the world of Truth and Knowledge, of Unity and Love be the supreme trait of our national life. Let the Absolute Divine and therefore Truth, Knowledge, Unity and Love be the guiding motive principles of our life. Let all our actions, both physical and mental, be attuned to the divine world of Truth and Knowledge, of Unity and Love. Let the Absolute Divine be the only foundation of our idea of universal brotherhood, and let our world be the home of such a universal brotherhood wherein all the individuals would be bound together in one by Truth, Knowledge, Unity and Love. Thus let the supreme crown of Purna Yoga be the only crown common to all humanity."
