Group Description

The swastika is an ancient symbol representing 'permanent spiritual victory'. It is an inspiration to millions of people in the world and has been for several thousand years. It was abducted and distorted in the 20th Century by Hitler's Third Reich. Now its true meaning needs to re-emerge.

Group Guidelines
• Swastikas must rotate counter-clockwise (see the group icon). In the yogic tradition where the swastika originated, this direction symbolises 'permanent spiritual victory'. Discussed in this thread.
• No swastikas that are used to represent or promote hatred. That includes Nazi and anti-Nazi symbology.
• Photos or artwork are welcome.
• The swastika in your image must be intended as such by its creator - no 'implied' or 'accidental' swastika shapes.
• Discussion, exploration, questions and comments are always welcome.
