Swastika

The symbol of the Swastika and its 12,000-year-old history

(Read the article on one page)

The swastika is a symbol used by of one of the most hated men on Earth, a symbol that 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 powerful symbol thousands of years before him, across many cultures and continents.

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 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 artefacts 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?

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.

Swastika - Positive and Negative ShapesA Sanskrit scholar P. R. Sarkar in 1979 said that the deeper meaning of the word is ‘Permanent Victory’. He also said that as any symbol it can have positive and negative meaning depending on how it is drawn. So in Hinduism, the right-hand swastika is a symbol of the God Vishnu and the Sun, while the left-hand swastika is a symbol of Kali and Magic. The double meaning of symbols is common in ancient traditions, like for example the symbol of the pentagram (five pointed star), which is viewed as negative when pointing downwards, and positive when pointing upwards.

Mezine SwastikaThe earliest swastika ever found was uncovered in Mezine, Ukraine, carved on an ivory figurine, which dates an incredible 12,000 years, and one of the earliest cultures that are known to have used the Swastika was a Neolithic culture in Southern Europe, in the area that is now Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, known as the Vinca Culture, which dates back around 8,000 years.

In Buddhism, the swastika is a symbol of good fortune, prosperity, abundance and eternity. It is directly related to Buddha and can be found carved on statues on the soles of his feet and on his heart.  It is said that it contains Buddha’s mind.

Lalibela SwastikaOn the walls of the Christian catacombs in Rome, the symbol of the Swastika appears next to the words “ZOTIKO ZOTIKO” which means “Life of Life”. It can also be found on the window openings of the mysterious Lalibela Rock churches of Ethiopia, and in various other churches around the world.

 

Navaho - SwastikaIn Nordic Myths , Odin is represented passing through space as a whirling disk or swastika looking down through all worlds. In North America, the swastika was used by the Navajos. In Ancient Greece, Pythagoras used the Swastika under the name ‘Tetraktys’ and it was a symbol linking heaven and earth, with the right arm pointing to heaven and its left arm pointing to Earth.

It has been used by the Phoenicians as a symbol of the Sun and it was a sacred symbol used by the priestesses.

Swastica - Phoenicians

How and why did so many diverse countries and cultures, across many eras, use the same symbol and apparently with the same meaning?   

It is ironic, and unfortunate, that a symbol of life and eternity that was considered sacred for thousands of years has become a symbol of hatred.

Very interesting article on the swastika symbol though 12,000 years of history

The swastika is an exclusive Hindu symbol brought by the Sanskrit speaking Aryans from Southern Ukraine in Russia to India. Thus, making it an original symbol brought by Europeans in their various of conquest and travels. This Afro-Asiatic speaking world is leery of the swastika since its use by Hitler and surprisingly they are claiming it as they are claiming everything white. But so far I haven't seen them claiming the conquest of modern day empires. This symbol was never found in the Black world until it was brought there by the conquering whites. It figured in their worship of the sun and their culture and cremation burials so did the horse and chariot. Egypt as the leading Black power in the Medit. area NEVER knew or received this symbol that was common in the IE world including Troy and Greece. It was not until the conquering Romans reached there that Egypt received this IE symbol and then it was brought over to the Americas by whites.

The swastika is found in traditional Native American iconography. The symbol has been found in excavations of Mississippian-era sites in the Ohio and Mississippi River valleys, dating back to 800 CE.

this lie "EGYPT as the leading Black power" has got to stop.I guess if you repeat a lie long enough it becomes the truth.My god no wonder we have dumbed down students these days.

I have also heard recently about an alternative truth behind the history of Hitler, remembering the to the victor goes the spoils including how history is written and what doctrines we are feed.

Does this mean Hitler was extraterrestrial?

No, I wouldn't say that myself! But the rays which influence us are - those which work through us and cause change come from an extraterrestrial source. I now some people think we are an experiment, I don't. I think we have a very long term evolutionary path - along with everything else in the universe. I recently read an interesting account by a woman who channels her departed son Erik who claimed to have met Hitler on the astral plane - in fact there were "two" of him - he said in a way he was a great soul to undertake the role of what he did, that it had a purpose and it was part of the evolution of humanity. Great wars create great change. The Nazis adopted the swastika but it already existed as a natural form even before it becomes a HIndu symbol. All symbols have a reason behind them, they aren't just invented. The swastika appears in the cross section of a plasma column which is why it has been carved into rocks but the ancients. They actually saw plasma formations in the sky - these in turn gave rise to the myths of gods. Even the holy grail appears as a plasma formation.
The swastika as seen by the ancients wold have been moving, as plasma shapes revolve and morph. The shape is even seen in the cross section of our DNA!

HOW DID IT ORIGINATE?

Nimrod the great grandson of Noah was the first person to gather people together and start building cities. He was a King in "opposition to Jehovah" (Gen. 10:8,9) after Nimrod died his wife continued to spread sex worship. She got pregnant and had a son named Tammuz that she claimed was the reincarnated Nimrod. (to keep her power) Over time all three became a deified godhead, singly and together as a "trinity". (that's where that idea came from that Roman Catholics allowed into Christianity.) (actually Roman Emporer Constatine basically forced them to except it at the Concil of Nicea)
Tammuz became one of the main gods! His symbol as the Capitol "T" became known as the "Sign of Life". It ended up with many forms possibly hundreds with the various forms of the Swaztica as some of them.
When Jehovah changed their languages they spread all over the earth (which is what he told them to do in the first place) taking their all their apostate and disgusting symbols with them. (the Jews and First century Christians had nothing to do with any of these pagan symbols. (which were all phallyc symbols btw)
Some apostate Jews fell to worshipping Tammuz and his symbol and it was disgusting to Jehovah! (Gen. 8;5,6,13,14)
Constatine in efforts to "unify" his empire claimed he saw a vision in the sky (300 something ad) and he saw the "T" in a new form "t". The cross which he aspired as the new Christian symbol. He put it on all the military shields in the Crusades. As a "t" the pagans still recognized it and it didn't seem as offensive to the ( watered down) Christians.
Well after over a thousand years it became a natural symbol for So called Christianity. (Christendom) (dumb is right)
Then in 1610-11 the Catholics and Protestants inaccurately translated the Latin word "crux" from the "Latin Vulgate" into the Enhlish Duay and KJV as "cross". (Now most in @Chritsendo" think Jesus died on a cross)
This is false! The Latin word "crux" means "stake, torture-stake, pole, post, tree"
Accurate Bible translations reflect this. That is why some religions have nothing to do with cross.
So, in summary, the Swaztica as a form of the cross originated from Medopatamia as a phallic symbol of the god Tammuz.
And the oldest known without a doubt proof artifact that we have of man kinds existence is just a little over 5,000 years old. (which coincides with the Bible's account of the first man Adam being created a little over 6,000 years ago 6,040 to be exact as of 2015).
So there can be no symbol of a cross, Swaztica older then that and some suggest on here. (if they could prove it it would be a scientific breakthrough)
Hope you enjoy this. This is all actually history. But you have to sort through all the "muck" to find it. :)

No that is by plan of the jewish rabbis to anihilate all religions on Earth. Is in their protocolls.

The left Swastika is the Positive one. Did you already Notice the Swastika contains all letters and numbers of the Alfabet and is 1st Sourche of all Languages Religions and Word of God.

If that is really the plan of Jewish Rabbis, they seem to be rather sluggish in their efforts. Maybe they should study the actions of Islam, who are much more energetic and widespread in their campaign make everything which is not Islam become Islam, by any means necessary.

As from what i have read, swastika is very old (10 000BC?) symbol, and it can be found worldwide. Here is a picture from a swastika in Plaosnik, Macedonia from a period between 4th and 6th century BC

As incredible as it may seem, swastika does not originate in Asia, but in Europe, more exactly in Thracia and Dacia. From here it was brought to Asia. Sorry to burst ur bubble but the swastikas found here in Romania, my country, are far older than those/that from Ukraine. History is written by victors, remember?

the article has the "negative" and "positive" forms of the symbol backwards! clockwise spinning is positive and anti-clockwise is negative. getting this wrong = very poor article.

Everyone who likes the swastika symbol should stop referring to Hitler's symbol as a swastika. Swastika is a sanskrit term. German socialists did not use the term "swastika" they used the term "hakenkreuz" (hooked cross). There is no evidence that the German symbol is related to nor derived from the sanskrit symbol. People are confused if someone says that hakenkreuz is the "German" word for swastika because there is nothing to it, other than that the symbols are visually similar. It is no more useful (and is as correct) to say that "swastika" is the sanskrit word for "hakenkreuz." The term swastika was in fact used to confuse people and to defame the sanskrit term and symbol and to hide the fact that Hitler did not call it a swastika, and to hide the fact that Hitler called it a type of cross. To say that Germans called their symbol a hakenkreuz long before the socialist Hitler arose does not change any of these above facts and does not change the fact that he altered it (and used it) to represent crossed S-letters for his socialism, turning it 45 degrees from the horizontal, and pointing it always in the S-direction, and following the similar style and alphabetical symbolism of the SS, the SA, the NSV etc as well as the ubiquitous VW symbols (the two letters V & W meshed for "volkswagen") -that is one of the many amazing discoveries of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry. It is time to stop hiding the truth about Hitler's symbol. It is time to stop misleading people about his symbol and his socialist dogma. Let's stop defaming and persecuting the sanskrit term and the sanskrit symbol and stop linking it to Hitler's hakenkreuz. http://rexcurry.net

It's bad that no one can speak of the swastika for what it Originally was.
It's also quite sad and pathetic that the swastika symbol was perverted, because of the Nazis, as viewed very negatively, though, by many ignorant and hateful people.

Don't even think about think about talking to any Jewish person about the subject, not even the younger generation, who's brainwashed by the older generations of what happened during WWII.

It's quite sad and pathetic that the swastika symbol was perverted.

From the Volta to the Congo to the Nile, from scarification to gold weights to hieroglyphics, the swastika has been used throughout Afriqa for a long time…

The Akan occupy a large part of West Africa including parts of Ghana and the Ivory Coast and include many sub-ethnic groups such as the Baule and the Asante (Ashanti). The Akan were producing them to weigh gold dust which was their currency, thus the name ‘gold weights’. When used on the gold weight, the swastika was a symbol of currency, expressing power, money, wealth and integrity. The idea and the implementation of gold-based currency came from the Akan people of modern-day Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana.

The swastika is also one of the Akan people’s famous Adinkra symbols.

According to one source, the swastika is referred to by the Akan as a monkey’s foot. Another source says it is called Kode Emower Ewa (‘talons of the eagle’), represents devotion and service and is shaved on the back of the heads of the Queen Mother’s servants. Still another source names it Nkotimsefuopua, claiming similarly that certain attendants on the Queen Mother who dressed their hair in this fashion.

I have read multiple times a claim that would suggest the symbol used to denote the 'American Dollar' - "$" - is an ancient symbol used to represent "Saturn -El" which is a possible reference to Satan or the Black Cube of Saturn AND that the word 'Dollar' is a homonym for a word in ancient Aramaic that would translate as "Suffering" or "Pain" or maybe "Burden".

Actually the etymology of the name derives from Thaler, named so because they were first made in the town of Joachimsthaler (Jáchymov in the Czech Republic) It was a silver coin which weighed aproximately an ounce. In Scandinavia the name became Daler and in England the word became Dollar.
And the word you seem to be referring to might be Dolores, meaning pain or sorrow in Spanish used in the naming of the Virgin Mary of Sorrow: La Virgen María de los Dolores

The Swastika - The Prime and Principle Symbol of Life.

Abstract:
The Swastika symbol is found in ancient cultures all over the world and it´s prime quality is that “it turns both ways” in order to create all forms in life, but also to dissolve all forms and to re-create new forms of life. As such, the Swastika is the prime symbol of life itself and it must be recognizable “all over the place”, even in the modern science.

“Magnetism is a class of physical phenomena that are mediated by magnetic fields. Electric currents and the magnetic moments of elementary particles give rise to a magnetic field, which acts on other currents and magnetic moments”. This is the very elementary principle of creation”.

When an electric current hits metallic and gaseous particles, a perpendicular magnetic field is created and, depended of the polarity of the electric current, an inwards or and outwards turning swirl is created. These two basic directions corresponds to the “two way turning” Swastika of creation and the global cultural myths logically connects the Swastika to their prime gods and goddesses of creation.

The numerous global Stories of Creation mostly speaks of the creation “before and under the creation itself”. This is not to be understood as “once upon a time the Universe was created”, but primarily as a principle explanation of the elementary creation and secondarily as the explanation of how the “local part of the Universe was created”.

Even though our ancestors new that “other worlds besides our own existed”, the numerous cultural telling of creation deals specifically with the creation of our Milky Way galaxy, which is a “barred spiral galaxy”.

Modern science still are not certain if the Milky Way has two or four bars in its swirling structure, but many myths of creation speaks of four “main rivers of creation”, thus suggesting that the Milky Way has four bars in its swirling structure which corresponds to the structure of the Swastika symbol. (Constructed image of the Milky Way galaxy – Link - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milky_Way#/media/File:Artist%27s_impressio...)

As mentioned above, most stories of creation speaks of the primary elementary conditions of creation and of the creation of the local part of the Universe, our Milky Way. The Egyptian story of creation, the Ogdoad, is a fine example of this. When combining this explanation with the also Egyptian goddess, Hathor, we get the very idea of this.

The Ogdoad:
The eight deities were arranged in four male-female pairs: Nu and Naunet, Amun and Amaunet, Kuk and Kauket, Huh and Hauhet. The males were associated with frogs and females were associated with snakes. Apart from their gender, there was little to distinguish the male gods and female goddesses; indeed, the names of the females are merely derivative female forms of the male name. Essentially, each pair represents the male and female aspect of one of four concepts, namely the primordial waters (Nu and Naunet), air or invisibility (Amun and Amaunet), darkness (Kuk and Kauket), and eternity or infinity (Huh and Hauhet.

Together the four concepts represent the primal, fundamental state of the beginning. They are what always was. In the myth, however, their interaction ultimately proved to be unbalanced, resulting in the arising of a new entity. When the entity opened, it revealed Ra, the fiery sun, inside. After a long interval of rest, Ra, together with the other deities, created all other things”. Link - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogdoad#In_Egyptian_mythology

Here, the elementary and principle explanation of creation is told and combining this basical explanation with the creative qualities and powers of the Egyptian goddess, Hathor, we get the very precise explanation of the Milky Way creation itself and thus also the explanation of the qualities of the swirling Swastika on the big scale.

The goddess Hathor:
“Hathor, along with the goddess Nut, was associated with the Milky Way during the third millennium B.C. when, during the fall and spring equinoxes, it aligned over and touched the earth where the sun rose and fell. Nut or Hathor could, in one account, be seen as the pillars on which the sky was supported with the stars on their bellies constituting the Milky Way on which the solar barque of Ra, representing the sun, sailed”. Link - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hathor#Relationships.2C_associations.2C_im...

The good Ra, mentioned in the Ogdoad above as “the fiery sun”, clearly represents the Milky Way central light and NOT the Sun. From this central light, everything was created together with the goddess Hathor, who represents the southern hemisphere Milky Way contours. Link - http://native-science.net/MilkyWay.MotherGoddess.htm

Modern interpretations.
As a result of the somewhat forgotten Milky Way story of creation, many historic and modern scholars have got into all kinds of speculative and wrong interpretations of the ancient myths of creation.

This is also the fact with the Anthony Peratt “plasma figures” and the Thunderbolts.info idea in their “Symbols of an Alien Sky”, mentioned in the comments here, where the idea is built on interpreting planets to be creative gods and goddess instead of the prime Milky Way deities, also mentioned in the Egyptian Ogdoad and the Hathor myth above.

The goddess Hathor is equal to the Greek goddess, Aphrodite and to the Roman goddess Venus, which consequently and logically has nothing to do with planets at all as claimed by the Thunderbolts.info society and also claimed by the Immanuel Velikovski followers of “catastrophism”, but it has everything to do with Milky Way goddesses and the Milky Way Mythology and the global Stories of Creation as such.

Thank you for your insiteful post.  I admit that I am only one who likes to read about such topics as my hobby.  I also wonder about this (for anyone who may be able to expand upon) I have wondered about any possible link between the words,  Phoenitian  and Venitian as in the Planet or goddess Venus.  The have been Biblical references to Phoenitians and when I read about Venus many years ago in school,  I was curious if there was any connection (homonym) to the word Venetian.  There may be nothing to it, but the similar sounds of these terms made me question it.  I realize that this may be off the main topic.

Hello Christopher and thanks for your reply.

The naming of deities and earthly locations and populations is indeed an interesting question. Imagine humans all over the world watching the skies and wondering: "What is it all about"?

In my opinion, ancient humans have named everything in the Sky after “their own human, animal, vegetable and elementary images”. So how can they imagine “a goddess in the Sky, called Venus, born from foam”? Link - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_%28mythology%29

- The roman goddess Venus is equal to the Greek goddess Aphrodite and the Egyptian goddess Hathor, who specifically and mythologically is connected to the Milky Way. Subsequently they all are connected to the Milky Way, which is mentioned as “the river in the Sky” in many cultures because of its “whitish foaming” contours, looking very much as a floating river on the Earth. Link - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hathor#Relationships.2C_associations.2C_im...

This explains the “goddess Venus, born of foam” and, in order to remember and worship this deity, ancient people made ritual local temples and as this supreme Milky Way deity was/is “the mother of humans as well as of everything else in our galaxy, one easily can imagine humans to identify themselves as “venetians”.

- The modern scholarly interpretations of deities and locations is somewhat confused because of the forgotten Milky Way mythology and its spupreme dieties of creation. All mythical earthly locations are just remenbrance locations of the celestial deities and should not be interpreted as "on this or that earthly location once upon a time this or that deity lived here". This confusion is all too common in all literature and mythical encyclopedia.

It is a shame that a symbol that meant so much to so many, starting in antiquity, can be hijacked and turned into something evil by a deranged leader so that it will always be known as a symbol of hate and revulsion. 

Your article poses the question: " But why is this symbol so important and why did Adolf Hitler decide to use it?"

And then you proceded to not even begin to answer these questions! You provided lots of examples of its use and the various meanings ascribed to the symbol. But nothing directly related to why it was "so important." And you provided nothing at all to even hint at why Hitler chose to use it.

I am feeling sorry that swastikas have become somewhat 'victims' of hate, in particular of those considering Hitler to be 'a war criminal' post-WWII. Reconciliation of its repute is necessary, imho.

sww

Seems to be related with the concept of light (sviat en Slav;sud-south;)

@Henry,
The light connection to Swastika´s very much confirms my description of the Swastika symbols generally representing the very generative principle of life.

Back in antiquity, that was the name of my college year book. That's before the perpetually offended class took over and changed it.

The German symbol was not a "swastika" and is a different symbol, because Germans called their symbol a "hakenkreuz" (hooked cross).

It would help readers would explain the above, and that although the
"swastika" was an ancient symbol, the German symbol (the hooked
cross) was altered under German socialism and used to represent crossed "S" letters for "socialism" (the name of their group and what they called themselves), and that is one of the amazing discoveries of the historian Dr. Rex Curry, as described by the author Ian Tinny in the book "Pledge of Allegiance and Swastika Secrets."
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B0H2RNA

Hitler and his supporters did not call themselves "Nazis" nor "Fascists."
They called themselves socialists.

That is why Hitler's symbol was turned 45 degrees from the horizontal and always pointed in the "S" letter direction. It was similar to other symbols of German socialism (i.e. the SS symbol is two "S" letters for "Schutzstaffel"; the VW is a "V" and a "W" for "Volkswagen"; the SA symbol is an "S" and an "A" for "Sturmabteilung"; and the NSV symbol is an "N," an "S," and a "V," for "NationalsozialistischeVolkswohlfahrt"). http://rexcurry.net

In the book "Swastika the earliest known symbol and its migrations" by
Thomas Wilson (published in 1894 at page 771) Professor Max Muller cautioned against the use of the term "swastika" and said "I do not like the use of the word svastika outside of India. It is a word of Indian origin and has
its history and definite meaning in India. * * * The occurrence of such
crosses in different parts of the world may or may not point to a common
origin, but if they are once called Svastika the vulgus profanum will at
once jump to the conclusion that they all come from India, and it will take
some time to weed out such prejudice." Muller's prediction was amazingly
accurate, and it is amusing that he labeled so many people in the world
today as "vulgus profanum."

It is a shame that the misnomer "swastika" was applied to the German
socialist symbol (the "Hakenkreuz" or hooked cross) to (bury, mask, conceal whitewash) rehabilitate socialism and also to distance the Christian Cross, all by slandering a foreign symbol (the swastika) instead.

People who actually want to rehabilitate the Hindu "swastika" will explain the
above in order to distinguish the "swastika" from the "Hakenkreuz." Most
people who read this will continue to slander the foreign symbol and word (swastika), as if they too desire to rehabilitate "socialism," to promote/protect the Christian cross. As you can see from the threads.

The misnomer "swastika" was done (and continues to be done) to cover up
Nazism's origin in American Christian Socialism, via Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance" -the origin of the Nazi salute and Nazi
behavior) and his cousin Edward Bellamy (author of "Looking Backward" -the origin of the National Socialist movement).

To truly understand the swastika, from where it came, with all the related people, understand Christian Identity.

The Swastika symbolizes the understanding of the mechanisms that creates galaxies, matter, time and space.

The Swastika therefore had to do with developing technology based on the understanding of the force behind creation itself. For the Nazi's, or whoever that accomplishes this goal, it could of course have meant winning the war.

The existence of such a physical reality, proven by functional technology built upon it, would probably mean that both the "big bang" theory and evolution theory, as a reason for matter and life, is either wrong or very incomplete, and therefore not really useable for the best heads in the world of science.

So, the swastika symbolizes astrophysical reality, or at least a very important part of it, and for the nazi's of course that what you can engineer out of that correctly understood physical reality. You could basicly play God if you know the true mechanics behind the creation of time and space.

In this light the use of the swastika symbol in the stoneage makes of course for advanced knowledge in ancient times.

The Swastika is the Yantra (symbol) of the original Aryan Constitution. It incorporates the Four Bindus representing the four offices of Aryavartha within the four arms. It pre dates the Rik Veda. (Only the Brahmin Canon of the Prathamo Upanishad precedes the Rik Veda) The Mantra (the condensed verbal vibrations) gives the four institutions, the objectives, the ordination and dedication in the Rik Veda: "Om Bhadram Karne bhi shrenayama Devaha, Om Bhadram Pashyemakshu bhir yajathraha, Sthiray rangay sthusthuvahum swasthino bhihi, vyyashema deva hitham yadayuhu. Swasthina Indro Vridhashrawaha. Swatshina Poosha Vishwavedaha. Swasthinastharkshyo arishtanaemihi. Swasthino Brishapathir Dathathu. Om Shanti, shanthi, shantihi". (Circa 20,000 B.C). The Tantra is implicit in the Mantra. Well being results and we shall see and hear only that which is auspicious and enjoy life with all our sixteen senses when the leader (Indra) is well famed), the Judge (Poosha) is all knowing, the Law Enforcer (Taarkshya) strikes down evil and the Mentor (Brihaspathi) educates well so blessing us with auspicousness. From this will come Peace, Peace, Peace. This prototypal or fractal Constitution is replicatable from the tiniest tribe to the overarching Grand Chief (or Arya Mihira) of all the tribes under Aryan Law or Varsha.P.S. The Vedas are not "epics" but an orally transmitted compendium of the Aryan experience while the Upanishads are the wisdom distilled therefrom. The Puranas are mythology and traditional History, often distorted to reconcile and enable the inclusion of various different tradtitions within the Aryan fold. The "auspiciousness" of the Swastika is the promise of the "rule of law" that is enabled by the four institutions mentioned in this Aryan Constitution having the qualities associated with them.

The Puranas are mythology and traditional History, often distorted to reconcile and enable the inclusion of various different tradtitions within the Aryan fold. The "auspiciousness" of the Swastika is the promise of the "rule of law" that is enabled by the four institutions mentioned in this Aryan Constitution having the qualities associated with them.

We can't get enough of our Selves in the spinning arms of infinite duality.

The Swastika wasn't stolen from Hindu Veda's it was stolen from the Cherokee when we were enslaved and slaughtered. The white trash that slaughtered my culture then used it to slaughter the few jews that knew of our travel from the holy land. We kept the symbol sacred until our destruction. And then they disgraced it in front of our youth to make sure we never tap into it's power again. Roman Catholics, and Christian hiding Satanists wish to ruin strong cultures and pollute their symbols for bad. It's best to keep your sacred symbols special by no longer sharing them with white trash sinners. Cherokee will rise again!

I suspect that the Swastika might be somehow connected with the Laybrenths, representing the cycle of, or journey though, life. As for Hilter, he succeeded to some degree in what he was searching for, and that was borderline space flight, and a connection to the 'others' that the rest of us might call demons, their human counterparts as being the 'illumanati'. Study him a bit more, and you find something very interesting. His 'religion' besides being into the occult, was Darwinism. He was an avid follower of Margarett Sanger. He was the ruler that worshiped the Strange God that his forfathers did not know, the God of Forces. Power, and the survival of the fittest, under the belief that it was providence , Destiny to rule and lead the world, and if it was not such, and Germany should fail, then it was obviously not strong enough and should be destroyed, allowing for the more fit to assume the role. The idea of tall , blond Nordic types being the descendents of the previous civilization of Atlantis, and that would be the ideal to strive for... well there we dive into the occult yet again. And a connection between the past and the policies of the present.

One other thought to add to this. Apparently the Swastika was also a symbol designating Horus, perhaps a mark that the 'men of metal' dedicated to him wore. Not sure on this but have heard it. Either way , this symbol is extremely ancient and associated with the world wide written language that existed before the division of languages. It would be interesting if the excavations going on in Egypt could manage to uncover the truly ancient copies of Historical records, and not hide them from the public as well.

Before SWASTIKA and HITLER............GERMANY was STARVING, They had WOODEN TANKS , PEOPLE where EATING RATION FOOD, 6 MILLION were JOBLESS and DESPAIRED.........

After HITLER in 5 YEARS GERMANY is WORLDS WEALTHIEST and GREATEST SUPERPOWER.......

that is the meaning of SWASTIKA..........

S10Rich, a big fan of Hitler are you. Just so that I understand your love of what Hitler and his worshippers such as yourself ‘did’ to have you claim him to be a miracle worker.

Your in favour then of bringing back concentration/death camps. The mass murder and genocide of millions of people. The torture, the starvation, the rule by fear hatred and anger. To destroy anyone who dares to speak out against ‘your’ agenda of a ‘master race’. Another world war to bring about the rule of a ‘master race’.

You are one very disturbed critter, as is anyone who agrees with you and your ‘miracle worker’.

The belief of ‘purity of blood, the master race the superior race’. All those who are not of pure blood are to be used, abused, exterminated because they are not of ‘pure blood, a member of the master race’ and there for are inferior.

There are no words that I can think off to describe what I ‘feel’ when I read such garbage that you have posted. Disgust, offensive, evil, come close but are lacking

Great article, Mr. Black and all who have contributed with comments. Very good stuff. Gotta say, from personal experience, I believe a Swastika is a symbol of Thought in Process. Like cutting a flower before it is allowed to fully bloom. Let it go ... let it fullfill itself, and THEN enjoy its radiance. There is no balance looking to the Sun and only the Sun ... Balance is found with the Sun-Earth-Moon all together in Harmony. I believe that is the greater lesson to be found here.

Gotta say, I came to this website in response to bizarre personal experiences. For me, the Swastika is an After-Thought. But whether you are aware of it or not, it is actively at work in your life and EVERYONE'S life today ... right now. This is not a theory. This is a fact. It is world-wide at this moment. Put simply, it is about Time. Take a closer look at your clock.......... Oh yes, there it is waiting for the veil to come off !!! Coincidentally, it is the Year of the Rooster and we all know what they do ............. they herald the Rising Light. I hope you are ready ~ THIS IS HAPPENING. Good luck to all :-)

Didn't see anything in here about the milky way galaxy having 4 arms..... just saying.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
