Hidden True - Signs - Swastika Swastika

During a religious holiday of mine, my mother and I went to the store, Staples, to make color copies of a few Gods to give to our temple. On one of the pictures, there was a very religious Hindu symbol, resembling a Nazi swastika, yet the arms faced the opposite direction.
When we went on line to pay for the copies, the people behind us, not noticing the differentiation between the two signs, starting talking to each other, saying that my mother and I were Nazis. Quite appalled, my mother turned around and calmly explained to them that it was not a Nazi symbol, that the symbol first belonged to many different cultures before the Nazis adopted it. She explained the religious meaning and the people behind us said they were sorry and stated, "Oh, I never knew that."

I have realized that many people, not only in this country, but in the entire world, do not know about the meaning of the swastika and that it was not only the symbol of Nazi Germany.

The swastika is an equilateral cross with arms bent at right angles, all in the same direction, usually the right, or clockwise. The swastika is a symbol of prosperity and good fortune and is widely dispersed in both the ancient and modern world. It originally represented the revolving sun, fire, or life. The word swastika is derived from the Sanskrit swastika which means, "conducive to well- being". The swastika was widely utilized in ancient Mesopotamian coinage as well as appearing in early Christian and Byzantium art, where it was known as the gammadion cross. The swastika also appeared in South and Central America, widely used in Mayan art during that time period.

In North America, the swastika was a symbol used by the Navajos. The swastika still continues today to be an extensively used sign in Buddhism, Jainism, and Hinduism. In Buddhism, a swastika represents resignation. In Jainism, it delineates their seventh saint, and the four arms are also used to remind the worshiper of the four possible places of rebirth; the animal or plant world, in Hell, on Earth, or in the spirit world. To Hindus, the swastika with the arms bent to the left is called the sathio or sauvastika, which symbolizes night, magic, purity, and the destructive goddess Kali. In both Hinduism and Jainism, the swastika or sathio is used to mark the opening pages or their account books, thresholds, doors, and offerings.

The swastika was a symbol for the Aryan people, a name which, in Sanskrit means "noble". The Aryans were a group of people who settled in Iran and Northern India. They believed themselves to be a pure race, superior to the other surrounding cultures. When the Germans looked for a symbol, they looked for a symbol which represented the purity which they believed they contained. The Nazis regarded themselves as "Aryans" and tried to steal the accomplishments of these pre-historic people.

In Nazi Germany, the swastika with its arms turned clockwise became the national symbol. In 1910, a poet and nationalist Guido von List suggested that the swastika as a symbol for all anti-Semitic organizations. When the National Socialist Party was formed in 1919, it adopted the ancient symbol, the swastika, giving it the worst meaning possible, destroying the good symbolism which the swastika had held for thousands of years prior.

In 1935, the black swastika on a white circle with a crimson background became the national symbol of Germany. The major difference between the Nazi swastika and the ancient symbol of many different cultures, is that the Nazi swastika is at a slant, while the ancient swastika is rested flat.

Today, whenever the ancient symbol is used, it is automatically assumed by most people that it is a Nazi symbol and that the people who use it are Nazis. When the Nazis took the ancient symbol, they erased the good meaning of the swastika, the symbol of purity and of life. The racist people of today further degrade the meaning of the ancient symbol by spray painting the swastika on people houses, cars, and even schools.

In my eighth grade World of Difference class, we watched a video about a high school art student who painted the swastika and displayed it in his school's art gallery. We then had a debate on whether the painting should come down or not. Because most people are ignorant to the fact that the swastika was not only a Nazi symbol, symbolizing death and destruction, the class decided to take the painting down and in actuality, the boy was forced to take it down. This is a prime example of how the world delineates the swastika as a bad symbol, and how the Nazis destroyed the meaning of the symbol by adopting it as their own.

The swastika symbolizes so much more than what the Nazis planned. The swastika existed as a symbol of good fortune thousands of years before the Nazis even existed. The symbol is to many cultures an important one, representing their history and beliefs. The Nazis, by taking the swastika, annihilated the significance of the ancient symbol. Today, the swastika is to most people a symbol of evil, a symbol of demise, and a symbol of ruination. It is extremely depressing to find that although the swastika is a symbol of life, and symbol of joy, it has been made a symbol of evil, something the people of the ancient world never intended it to be.

3Hidden True - Signs - Swastika Empty General meaning of the Swastika on Wed Aug 01, 2012 10:12 pm


Hidden True - Signs - Swastika Gesammt

The Swastika symbol has been used for thousands of years already in almost all human civilizations as a sign for good luck, protection, as a materialisation of life and the changing seasons of the year.

The word SWASTIKA stems from the Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language: SVASTIKAH, which means 'being happy'. In India the word is related to things of good fortune because it means being happy. The cause of all life and all manifestations of life is movement.

The incessant movement of the universe continuously brings forth new things. This goes for the earth as well, which is in constant rotation, as are the suns, all planets and the heavens.

As such it's also the sign of the circular movement, the sign of rebirth. It also signifies those who knew about reincarnation (Samsara), who spread all over the world and where they stayed they exerted their influence.

The symbol of the Fylfot, has many names. In the primitive language of the ancient Germanic people it was often called "Vierfoss" (= foot of fire).

The three pictures shown here are right-turning.
Left-turning tracery signs can also be found.

This form of presentation of the Swastika is often found on ancient churches and Gothic buildings in Germany and Europe. Many have already been put under the protection of the Unesco.

According to Guido von List it has the following meaning:
The 'Dreischneuss' as 'Vilfos' says: 'Generative Will',referring to the creation of the universe as well as the affirmation of living. The ' Vierschneuss' as Fyfos means :' Creation of fire' with reference to the original fire which is good.But the 'Vierschneuss' as 'Hakenkreuz' has the meaning 'allincluding cross' - 'Hagg', hegen'.

The name "Hakenkreuz" stays for good as the creator an redeamer who is included in the cosmos as well as in each single person like in a 'Haag'.
Today the name "Hakenkreuz" (Fylfot) has obtained a connotation of condemnation as something of a former dictatorship.

In many places this symbol is used as a symbol for the sun, or taken as a symbol for the movement of the sun and in other regards as a symbol for rebirth, or reincarnation, because the sun turns continuously and gives rebirth to everything, rejuvenating itself for eternityr. In regard to the relationship between "Hakenkreuz", Swastika, Sun and Sun Wheel, another remark can be made: it depicts the progression of the sun as a symbol for the changing of the seasons in the form of a ring. The golden ring of marriage can therefore be seen as sharing all joys and pains of the year together, that is the deeper meaning of the ring of marriage; therefore the symbol of marriage can only be a ring, and because of that it should be made of the sun-like gold.

Whether one leaves out the circle around the Swastika, Sun Wheel or the "Hakenkreuz", whether the wings are straight or bent, whether the beams are reduced from 4 to 3 or increased to 8 or more, or whatever artistic creativity one may apply, the meaning is more or less the same. It has however several relationships to ancient pasts, which can be found back in great historical works.

In Chinese the "fylfot" in a circle is the Chinese character for the word 'sun', without the circle it stands for infinity and for the number 10.000. That the sign figuratively speaking also stands for fertility, can be seen from the carvings and statues of various ancient peoples where the sign was used on genital parts.

4Hidden True - Signs - Swastika Empty Evil Side - Swastika and Nazi on Wed Aug 01, 2012 10:51 pm


In the beginning of the twentieth century the swastika was widely used in Europe. It had numerous meanings, the most common being a symbol of good luck and auspiciousness. However, the work of Schliemann soon was taken up by völkisch movements, for whom the swastika was a symbol of “Aryan identity” and German nationalist pride
This conjecture of Aryan cultural descent of the German people is likely one of the main reasons why the Nazi party formally adopted the swastika or Hakenkreuz (Ger., hooked cross) as its symbol in 1920.
The Nazi party, however, was not the only party to use the swastika in Germany. After World War I, a number of far-right nationalist movements adopted the swastika. As a symbol, it became associated with the idea of a racially “pure” state. By the time the Nazis gained control of Germany, the connotations of the swastika had forever changed.
In Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler wrote: “I myself, meanwhile, after innumerable attempts, had laid down a final form; a flag with a red background, a white disk, and a black swastika in the middle. After long trials I also found a definite proportion between the size of the flag and the size of the white disk, as well as the shape and thickness of the swastika.”
The swastika would become the most recognizable icon of Nazi propaganda, appearing on the flag referred to by Hitler in Mein Kampf as well as on election posters, arm bands, medallions, and badges for military and other organizations. A potent symbol intended to elicit pride among Aryans, the swastika also struck terror into Jews and others deemed enemies of Nazi Germany.
Despite its origins, the swastika has become so widely associated with Nazi Germany that contemporary uses frequently incite controversy.
