The Swastka is the oldest known symbol on Earth. It has many different names and has been depicted both ways (clockwise and counter clockwise) throughout ancient history. Its all part of Sacred Geometry! The word swastika comes from Sanskrit and literally means ‘well-being’. It describes a lucky object or a mark denoting good luck. The symbol appears in many ancient cultures with different meanings attributed to it. They found relics depicting this image in countries like Tibet, Greece, India, Iraq, Iran, Armenia, China, Japan, Ireland and Britain, Sweden, Norway, Europe, South America and even North America. Tribes like the Navajos and the Hopi natives still use the symbol in their traditions today. Many cultures have used it as a symbol for peace and tranquility, others have used it as a good luck charm or as a way to channel energy from the collective source. In Buddhism the Swastika represents eternity and it appears on the chest of some statues of Buddha. In Hinduism it represents Sun’s rays, upon which life depends. As well in Christianity swastika is used as a hooked version of a Christian Cross and appears in many ornaments and church decoration.
