    Default A Universal Pagan Symbol

    The swastika is a symbol that was used in the 20 th century by of one of the most hated men ever to have lived, a symbol that now represents the slaughter of millions of people and one of the most destructive wars on Earth. But Adolf Hitler was not the first to use this symbol. In fact, it was used as a positive and powerful symbol thousands of years before him, across many cultures and continents.
    Spiritual Beginning for the Swastika

    For the Hindus and Buddhists in India and other Asian countries, the swastika was an important symbol for many thousands of years and, to this day, the symbol can still be seen in abundance - on temples, buses, taxis, and on the cover of books. It was also used in Ancient Greece and Rome, and can be found in the remains of the ancient city of Troy, which existed 4,000 years ago. The ancient Druids and the Celts also used the symbol, reflected in many artifacts that have been discovered. It was used by Nordic tribes, and even early Christians used the Swastika as one of their symbols, including the Teutonic Knights , a German medieval military order, which became a purely religious Catholic Order. But why is this symbol so important and why did Adolf Hitler decide to use it?


    Positive Days of the Swastika

    The word ‘swastika’ is a Sanskrit word (‘svasktika’) meaning ‘It is’, ‘Well Being’, ‘Good Existence, and ‘Good Luck’. However, it is also known by different names in different countries - like ‘Wan’ in China, ‘Manji’ in Japan, ‘Fylfot’ in England, ‘Hakenkreuz’ in Germany and ‘Tetraskelion’ or ‘Tetragammadion’ in Greece.

    n 1979, a Sanskrit scholar P. R. Sarkar said that the deeper meaning of the word is ‘Permanent Victory’. He also said that like any symbol it can have positive and negative meaning depending on how it is drawn. So in Hinduism, the right-hand swastika illustrated below is a symbol of the God Vishnu and the Sun, while the left-hand swastika is a symbol of Kali and Magic.

    I used to see Swastika's a lot when I would take strong doses of mushrooms.....it always seemed to me to be like a 'wheel of life' symbol, but also a power symbol, and an ordering symbol.

    In my experience of it, it doesn't matter what way around it rotates.

    A very powerful occult symbol that has nothing at all to do with National Socialism, apart from the fact Hitler nicked it to use as his flag, and in doing so, implemented it's magic.

    Almost all Hindu wedding invitations include a swastika int decoration, and every temple/ashram I went into had one somewhere. Such a shame it fell into disrepute because of nazism.

    Also, any Triskele Shaped Symbol is a Universal Paganistic Symbol like the Symbol of Druidism:

    A proper pagan would get a swastika tattooed on his forehead, and whenever queried, would calmly explain to people it's true origins and meaning!

    That is the Awen symbol without the dots above the line, that you displayed. Here is the triskle. Like the swastika it is another sun wheel symbol:

    The nazis never called it a swastika, they called it a hooked cross. If it was based on an actual swastika it was a very simplified version. Come to think of it, they didn't call themselves nazis either.
    YOU LOST. AGAIN.

    Isn't the word 'nazi' an abbreviation for 'National Socialism' - or did I just make that up?
