PostSubject: Swastika   7/2/2012, 8:54 am

The swastika has had a bad rap.. especially since Hilter adopted it for his army as a symbol of the Aryan Race. No reference that i have found refers the Swastika to the Aryan race. So its a new Invented Meaning to this ancient symbol.
The Swastika.


Above is the Nazi Flag, the most common and first thought that comes to most minds when the swastika is mentioned.
Its ancient meaning Prior to Nazi Germany it is Good Luck, Used a lot by air pilots in the 1800's as a good luck charm



Right around the world this misunderstood symbol has many peaceful, beautiful meanings. rather than the immediate sinister one that conjures up in our minds.

In Hinduism the Swastika represents the God Ganesha



In American Native Indian culture the Swastika symbol is used both ways, clockwise and widdershins (counter clockwise)

Clockwise it represents the Sun, Widdershins it represents the moon.
On this pair of moccasins it would have the meaning of the sun.



In this next image the Swastika was adopted by a Chinese organisation called the Red Swastika society, very similar to the western Red Cross..
Its concentrations was to help the poor, run soup kitchens and ensure education to underprivileged children.

More reading on the red swastika society

some older pieces of craftsmanship with the swastika come from Italy and Greece.

in one piece from Greece opposite facing swastikas are either side of the floral centre piece.


a Greek Helmet. 350-325 BC


a Greek Silver coin



Italian Pendant 700-650BC


Swasti means well being or so be it..

It was a symbol to evoke Shakti..
I cant really say it any better.. so
I have taken this quote from wikipedia..

"Historical use in the East

The swastika is a historical sacred symbol both to evoke 'Shakti' in tantric rituals and evoke the gods for blessings in Indian religions. It first appears in the archaeological record here around[22] 2500 BC in the Indus Valley Civilization. It rose to importance in Buddhism during the Mauryan Empire and in Hinduism with the decline of Buddhism in India during the Gupta Empire. With the spread of Buddhism, the Buddhist swastika reached Tibet and China. The symbol was also introduced to Balinese Hinduism by Hindu kings. The use of the swastika by the Bön faith of Tibet, as well as later syncretic religions, such as Cao Dai of Vietnam and Falun Gong of China, can also be traced to Buddhist influence."

Indus Valley seals.. 2500BC



The swastika painted with vermilion.


This next image comes from an old western movie.. "On Desert Sands 1915" on this soldiers sleeve is the swastika symbol, On my research all over the net.. I can only come to the conclusion it was used as the symbol of good Luck..
an old runic meaning it means Victory.. so maybe this is also taken into account.

Note:: I cannot remember where i found the runic meaning for the Swastika of "Victory".. I have read many many books , and researched Runes over the years.. All i do remember is , that it has been referred to as a symbol of Victory.. The celts used this symbol on their shields in battle along with Teiwaz the arrow symbol for spirtual warrior....an Ogham stone was also found with the symbol of the swastika upon it.. In Yorkshire there is an engraved stone called the Swastika stone.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika_Stone I know it was in my research of these regions for the runes , I found the meaning.. When i find the exact source of my statement i will post without delay..
