Svastika


The swastika is a very ancient Indian symbol.

.

It is unfortunate that many people associate it with the Nazis who stole it for their emblem in the 1920s.

The four arms of a swastika symbolically represent the 4 categories of life, in any of which an individual soul may be reincarnated:

  • animals and plants
  • gods
  • hell-creatures
  • humans
