(Pronounced as Paramaa or Param, and Paromaa in Bengali; means ultimate, quintessential, the superior-most, the absolute)
PARAMA NATURALS is aimed at being the "ultimate in naturals" (quintessentially natural), purity and safety, while getting to the inner core purpose, the ultimate simple truth in whatever we do, and whatever products we create, with a core of wellness at its heart.
Our logo represents our philosophy
The logo represents our core purpose and philosophy in its various manifestations.
The Vermilion drop in our logo signifies the core or quintessential essence of life, PARAMA Satva, the life-giving prana or qi or the energy which is stored in all of nature. It comes to us from within and from without, from deep inside, from the immediate surroundings and from the cosmos. This is surrounded by the 5 elements - Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether, represented by the colours Yellow, Green, White, Blue and Brown (Black). All these empower the essential core.
On a different dimension, the Yellow, Green and Brown represent the different key parts of the plants viz. the flowers, fruits, leaves and roots, from which essential natural ingredients are extracted. Brown also signifies the earth element, core to our being, which keeps us nourished and grounded in nature, which we respect. The Blue signifies the water element which is life-giving to the plants and which nurtures us with its cooling and caring properties.
The 3 horizontal lines represent the 3 gunas of Satva, Rajas and Tamas and the 3 doshas of Kapha, Pitta, Vata as defined in Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of health and healing.
The Vermilion dot represents the "whole" and ultimately helps to chanellize all these aspects, the healing power of the plants and the energies that the elements bring, into our products, to enable them to soothe and heal at different levels in the human body - especially through our senses of touch (skin), smell (nose), form (eyes), taste (tongue).
