Our Guiding Principles
An Asian graduate school of social transformative praxis towards justice, peace and integrity of creation.
The ASI Logo
To convey the interrelationship of dynamic life-forces in the community within a positive continuum of peace and justice — this is what ASI hopes to project through its logo. The sun, with its luminous rays, stands for justice, the life-force that energizes all that it touches. ASI is for the promotion of life, and this can only be realized through the attainment of what is honest, moral, and free. The laurel leaves symbolize the integrity of creation, the wellspring from which all forms of life emerge. ASI creates and renews these life forms so that they may participate and live life to the full. The dove represents peace and its liberating and creative power. From ASI radiates light and warmth, giving off a sense of well-being for the achievement of productive endeavors.
These symbols are bounded by a circle to signify the vitality and ever-changing dimensions of life and the universe. Through all these, ASI hopes to put across the message of birth and renewal of life-giving social structures so that everyone may have access to life and to live it to their fullest potential.
