प्रक्र्ति: सूयते सचराचरं
Nature brings forth the whole creation: abiotic and biotic, material and immaterial and sentient and insentient. The environment is not ours to take or leave, it is ours to make and live sustainably (Bhagavad Gita 9:10).
Susthira stands true to this motto and as reflected in our logo.
