The swastika is a sacred symbol in Hinduism and Jainism. The Hindu version is often decorated with a dot in each quadrant.

However, in the Western world, it is most widely known and used as a symbol of Nazism. It is traditionally oriented so that a main line is horizontal, though it is occasionally rotated at forty-five degrees.
...
Buddhism was founded by a Hindu Prince and has thus inherited the swastika.

It's an ancient Buddhist symbol, generally meaning prosperity and good luck.

A reversed swatstika, called a sawastika generally stands for night or magical practices, while a standard swastika is more of a solar symbol.

The swastika is an ancient symbol used by many cultures including Hinduism and Buddhism. It has nothing to do with devil worship and is a symbol corrupted by the Nazi's when they turned it on it's side and adopted it as their own.

You will still find the original swastika on many Hindu and Buddhist temples.

Revolution of the Dialectic

CHAPTER VI

A BET WITH THE DEVIL

Napoleon would have succumbed against the Devil. One thing is to be in the battlefield against other males and another is the fight against oneself. Satan is a golden enemy, and he is very useful. The Devil is a ladder to descend and it is also a ladder to ascend. The Twelve Labors of Hercules are with the Devil. The pact with the Devil is the bet itself and the triumph is the capacity of fabricating gold. The electric force is the cross in movement or the swastika; it is continuous movement. The transcendent electricity which turns like a vortex has served me to form the Gnostic Movement. The cross in the profane and the profaners is not a swastika because once the chemical copulation ends, the movement ends. On the other hand, in the Gnostic cross, the movement does not end because the electricity continues transmuting itself. The norm in the sexual work should be a minimum of one hour. In India, the degree of culture is measured according to the time that the chemical copulation is carried out; the one who lasts three hours is respected and is a “lord”. The swastika in movement generates transcendent sexual electricity.







Hitler understood these things. This is why he chose the swastika as the symbol of his Party. However, Hitler let himself be dazzled by the "Man with green gloves" who belonged to the Dag Dugpa Clan. This man was the one who taught Hitler to crystallize everything negatively. When Von Litz capitulated, the monks in Lhasa of the Dag Dugpas launched themselves to the streets celebrating the capitulation of Berlin. The Second World War was a duel between the teachings of Gurdjieff and that of the Dag Dugpas. This duel was imported from Tibet and it was a true struggle between the white and black magicians of Tibet.

Leave it to Tamahu to provide a wealth of information as usual, we would all be far more ignorant without his/her contributions

It should also be noted that the norse used a similar symbol in many of their spiritual practices, the symbol being (if i remember correctly) a solar disk of sorts. and i have known a few occult practitioners of the norse traditions that belive that it was norse occultists in northern europe that gave this symbol under protest to himler, who passed it on to hitler to be used as a rallying symbol which would give him the occult energy he needed to conquer the world

Native Americans (i believe) use the Swastika too.



The swastika is an archetypal, universal human religious symbol. It appears on every continent and is as old as humankind. A marker of the sun's travels, it can be seen on Pictish rock carvings, adorning ancient Greek pottery, and on ancient Norse weapons and implements. It was scratched on cave walls in France seven thousand years ago. A swastika marks the beginning of many Buddhist scriptures, and is often inciused on the soles of the feet of the Buddha in statuary. In the Jain religion, it is a symbol of the seventh Jina (Saint), the Tirthankara Suparsva. To Native Americans, the swastika is a symbol of the sun, the four directions, and the four seasons.

it has also been used in advertisement too. Coca Cola is an example of a company that used the Swastika as a logo during the 1920s

It's like a lot of ancient symbols. They get used by a group in modern times and most people believe that symbol represents that group. The eagle on the great seal of the United States is no different.

It's a piece of costume jewelry, designed by a Westerner to look like it comes from the Mysterious Orient. If you have any friend who is a Goth or a belly dancer, I suggest you ask them if it's theirs.

We learnt about it in History, it was first associated with the Buddha's representing the circle of life or something
