The Swastika


Think of the most sacred thing in your life, think of the most precious thing and put the swastika into that place. Put the swastika into your heart. Put the swastika on your altar. Put the swastika on the image you use to represent God, love, peace, or the cosmos. Put the swastika on the thing that makes you happy.

Nope. I'm not a raving Nazi. This text comes from Friends of the Swastika, a website that shows the different meanings and uses of the Swastika *before* The National Socialist party hijacked the symbol for their own dark purposes. The supporting evidence shown in the form of pictures is compelling.

Fascinating, but not going to make me want to get a tattoo of one of them any time soon.
