The Motto of Indian Army
Service Before Self, or "Seva Asmakam Dharma," is the motto of the Indian Army. The Indian Army's mission is to protect the country from internal and external threats, preserve peace and security inside its borders, and ensure national security and unity. The Indian Army regiments have several mottos, including "Aakasey Satrun Jahi," which is the motto of the Army Air Defense. The motto of the Gorkha Regiment is "Jai Mahakali, Ayo Gorkhali." The motto of the Indian Navy is “Sha-no Varuna.”
Each regiment in the Indian army has its motto, and there are numerous sections and regiments within it. Since the beginning of time, the path of service has been the road to salvation and ultimate realization in Indian culture and philosophy. As of late, the most appropriate English translation of the Corps motto is "Service is our Creed." In 1950, the ASC chose it as its official motto.
