Turquoise Swastika

A swastika symbol on a house in Jamalpur, Bihar, India. The swastika is an ancient symbol representing permanent spiritual victory.


I have seen so many swastikas here in India - on temples, houses, shops, rickshaws and in random, unexpected places - that they just seem very commonplace to me now. This is very far from the shocking reaction that the symbol often receives in the West, due to the history of its abuse there. That negative perception is absolutely absent from people's minds here. The swastika here represents goodness, righteousness, truth, purpose and divinity.
