More details on the Svastica (swastica) The four dots on the inner part of the SVASTICA represents the four spiritual order AND the four outer joint Hyphen represents the four social order the spiritual order, namely, Brahmachari, Grehastra, Vanaprast, and Sanyasa—-and the four social order is: Brahmana, meaning Intercultural, Kshatria, Administrative/worrier class, Visha, the mercantile class, and Sudra, the laborer class.—–All are classified according to their work or occupation, as clearly explained in the Gita.
The cast brahmans are unqualified people who later on claimed to be brahmans by birth and not by qualification
Svastica is a sanskrit word wrongly spelt swastica.
Sv, meaning the spirit self and astica meaning eight, the eight division of human society classified by their occupation as mentioned above. Also Aryan is a Sanskrit word and not a race of people called Aryans. Any one who attains spiritual perfection is called an Aryan. The word Aryan is an adjective—-The Europeans are the ones who fabricated the idea of an Aryan race.
Indian spiritual culture is the most unique with the most powerful scientific philosophy.
I was raised and educated as a diehard Christian—-In my late 20′s I curiously looked into my ancestor’s tradition and was surprised of what I found which held the answer to my many questions so much so I EMBRACED it. I am now a full fledge vishnava.
However, regarding the Swastica, The correct spelling in sanskrit is: svasticl, sv, meaning the spiritual self and astica means eight—-the symbol means the four Varna and four Ashrama which is the VARNASHRAM DHARMA—-representing the four social and spiritual order.

The enduring symbol of the greatest evil visited on mankind in the past 100 years is the swastika. Irregardless of it’s history, it’s meaning, it’s other uses, the swastika was (and still is in use as) the symbol of the Nazi’s. Just as the fasces is bound to the Fascists, and the Confederate flag is tied to slavery, the swastika is burned into our social and cultural conscience as one of history’s greatest evils, Nazism. Sorry, but you have another thousand years or so before the swastika is purged of the evil it is stained with. You can blame the “uneducated”, the “unenlightened”, the “unspiritual”, whatever. It was the Nazi’s that perverted and defiled your symbol beyond repair, at least for the next several lifetimes. There are many fool’s errands out there…”rehabilitating” the swastika certainly ranks as one of the highest. Wear your swastika, wear it proudly, celebrate it’s meaning! But as long as the Nazi’s fester in our conscience, you aren’t going to change hearts and minds.
Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the net the simplest factor to have in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while other folks consider issues that they just don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as outlined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks!
My name is Mark Salden from Belgium, and i’m a graduating student at the Academie for fine arts and design in Maastricht (the Netherlands)
this year i made a bookcase in the form of a swastika. i wanted to let the people know it’s NOT a symbol of hatred and nazism but love and peace. even if it is through provocation.The colors and design are inspired by the Dutch artist Piet Mondriaan. He was a member of Theosophy wich is a ‘modern’ version of hinduism and buddhism, a culture that today,stil uses the swastika. i got many positive, but also negative, reactions but i will stand my ground!
I was recently given a silver swastika along with all the other members of my meditation group by our spiritual teacher, which I wear. For me it represents our spiritual journey, along our guided path back to Heaven. May we embrace the symbolism of this most sacred spiritual emblem and in doing so promote peace within ourselves and others. In choosing peace we reclaim and remember our way back Home. May God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit guide us along the way.
