SWASTIKA - I am NOT a Nazi


93!

Several days ago I started this blog-entry and I noticed that people's reaction was strange.
So I decided to clear everything up:
People as a rule (and unfortunately) associate this symbol of swastika only with Nazis. 
It is so-so narrow-minded view! 
As you will see this is one of the most ancient symbols that was used long before Hitler applied it.
For me swastika represents the whirling energy of Creative Force.It is also composed of 4 letter "L": 
As for my Nazi images I loaded them not for propaganda but because of my interest 
to historical personalities and history of ancient magickal symbols.

Oh, you know what  - I think that as long people link swastika with Nazi as stronger is their power.
I offer you to create the new correspondences - Liber 777 will help you with this (line 17):

Zain, Sword, Gemini, Saturn_Air_Mercury, ATU The Brothers, The Tripon (magickal weapon), 
Power of being in two or more places at one time and Power of Prophecy, etc.

So, please, try to look deeper.

 I praise the luxuriant Rapture of Innocence, the virile and pantomorphous ecstasy of All-Fulfillment:
I praise the Crowned and Conquering Child whose name is Force and Fire, whose subtlety and strength make sure serenity, whose energy and endurance accomplish the Attainment of the Virgin of the Absolute: who, being manifested, is the player upon the sevenfold pipe, the Great God Pan, and being withdrawn into the Perfection that he willed, is Silence.
(“Book of Thoth” A.Crowley, ATU 0)






The word swastika is derived from the Sanskrit word svastika (in Devanagari स्वस्तिक), meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on persons and things to denote good luck. The modern equivalent to the term would be a talisman.
The genesis of the swastika symbol is often treated in conjunction with cross symbols in general, such as the "sun wheel" of Bronze Age religion.

The Great Wheel of Samsara.
The Wheel of the Law. (Dhamma.)
The Wheel of the Taro.
The Wheel of the Heavens.
The Wheel of Life.
Ail these Wheels be one...




Hinduism:
In Hinduism, the two symbols represent the two forms of the creator god Brahma: facing right it represents the evolution of the universe (Devanagari: प्रवृत्ति, Pravritti), facing left it represents the involution of the universe (Devanagari: निवृत्ति, Nivritti). It is also seen as pointing in all four directions (north, east, south and west) and thus signifies grounded stability. Its use as a Sun symbol can first be seen in its representation of the god Surya (Devanagari: सूर्य, Sun). The swastika is considered extremely holy and auspicious by all Hindus, and is regularly used to decorate items related to Hindu culture.





 













SWASTIKA This is a four armed cross, which has recently been made famous by the Nazis, but its proper use originates in Hinduism. It is symbolic of force, power and thunder. In Qabalism it is most important, as Crowley allocates it to the first Sphere of Kether (כתר ), the Highest, thus it is a fitting geometrical expression for, and of, God himself. It is also called a ‘fylfat cross’, and it is composed of 17 squares. Two illustration are given below, the first details the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn astrological correspondences, and the second has the swastika superimposed upon the Magic Square of
Mars. The ‘aright’ swastika is given in both cases, whilst the ‘averse’ or ‘widdershins’ swastika of the Nazis is not. The symbol for Sol is given as the centre, joined to this are the four Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn; then the four Kerubic signs of Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus; finally the Zodiac is completed with the four Mutable signs of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo. At the terminations of the cross are the four hermetic symbols of the Elements. When we add up the 17 squares, as superimposed on the Qemea of Mars, we get 221, and in a left-handed Swastika the result is 231, the Mystic Number of 21. 
This is a most divine symbol, and it is sometimes called the ‘thunderbolt’. It is the First Mover (Primum Mobile) that initiates the Flaming Sword down through the Sephiroth on the Tree of Life.
(A Glossary of Thelema by Frater Pyramid)

"Look at the swastika, a symbol that has been used in countless cultures to represent the cycles of life, movement, the sun and many other very positive concepts. In our Western society this symbol has become corrupted and transformed by the Third Reich to the point where many Westerners – myself included – become unnerved when we see swastikas even in their original contexts."

Buddhism originated in India in the 5th century BC and inherited the manji or swastika. Also known as a "yung drung" in ancient Tibet, it was a graphical representation of eternity.Today the symbol is used in Buddhist art and scripture and represents dharma, universal harmony, and the balance of opposites. One can see swastika on the Pillars of Ashoka where the swastika is a symbol of the cosmic dance around a fixed center and guards against evil.




Jainism:
Jainism gives even more prominence to the swastika than does Hinduism. It is a symbol of the seventh Jina (Saint), the Tirthankara Suparsva. In the Svetambar (Devanagari: श्वेताम्बर) Jain tradition, it is also one of the symbols of the ashta-mangalas (Devanagari: अष्ट मंगल). It is considered to be one of the 24 auspicious marks and the emblem of the seventh arhat of the present age. All Jain temples and holy books must contain the swastika and ceremonies typically begin and end with creating a swastika mark several times with rice around the altar.

The swastika (from Sanskrit svástika) is an equilateral cross with its arms bent at right angles, in either right-facing (卐) form or its mirrored left-facing (卍) form. Archaeological evidence of swastika-shaped ornaments dates from the Neolithic period and was first found in the Indus Valley Civilization of the Indian Subcontinent. It occurs today in the modern day culture of India, sometimes as a geometrical motif and sometimes as a religious symbol; it remains widely used in Eastern and Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.Despite this usage, the symbol has become stigmatized and to some extent taboo in the Western world because of itsiconic usage by Nazi Germany

Aleph (Heb.) - the first letter of the Hebrew Alphabet, it is shaped like a swastika
and represents the whirling energy of  Creative Force.
As a single letter "A" - its number is one (Unity).
Spelt in full, as "Aleph" it becomes 111 - the number of a title of Kether,
the Highest God.
It is also the number of Death and Darkness, showing that in a mystical sense Death is a formula of Unity.

________________

Many older editions of Rudyard Kipling's books have a swastika printed on their covers associated with a picture of an elephant carrying a lotus flower. Since the 1930s this has raised the suspicion of Kipling being a Nazi-sympathiser, though the Nazi party did not adopt the swastika until 1920. Kipling used the swastika as it was an Indian sun symbol conferring good luck and well-being. He used the swastika symbol in both right- and left-facing orientations, and it was in general use at the time. Even before the Nazis came to power, Kipling ordered the engraver to remove it from the printing block so that he should not be thought of as supporting them. As an indication of his views of the Nazis, less than one year before his death Kipling gave a speech (titled "An Undefended Island") to The Royal Society of St George on 6 May 1935 warning of the danger which Nazi Germany posed to Britain.
