Symbolism

The official symbol of Jainism is a pictogram whose geometric outline symbolizes the world (lok); within the image is a raised hand inscribed with "ahimsa" (non- violence); a swastika symbolizing the four worlds into which one can be reborn; three dots symbolizing the three jewels of Jainism; and an arc symbolizing the abode of the Siddhas.
