Logo

GSDPL_Chi

The logo of Gaden Shartse Dro-Phen Ling is largely adapted from the logo of Gaden Shartse Monastery, which is symbolic of our roots in our mother monastery.

Inside the logo you see the group of three hybrid creatures formed from the union of three pairs of traditionally hostile enemies. They are known as the ‘three victorious creatures of harmony’, as they overcome traditional hatred for each other and co-exist in harmony. These three hybrid creatures are known as: (1) the eight-legged lion, (2) the fish with fur, (3) the sea-dragon. 

Just like the three hybrid creatures in the logo, GSDPL promotes compassion, peace and harmony with one another in a loving environment between dharma brothers and sisters.
