Diavolo Posted November 9, 2022 Share Posted November 9, 2022 (edited) Swastika is the name in Sanskrit, which is designated for the symbol in question. The Swastika can be understood as a polar symbol: The center of the cross is the aerial point from which one looks at the axis, which crosses a sphere. The arms of the cross represent the direction of rotation of the sphere. Since the Swastika is originally related to this motif (and to others of a solar nature), it is also considered a symbol of life, since it implies movement and change. It is interesting to know the genesis of the symbols, since they contain information passed down through generations to us, which dialogues with our supra/unconscious. The use that the Nazis gave to this symbol, for example, could be a kind of reversal of meaning in the symbol: the sacred becomes profane and vice versa. Sacred must be understood as that which refers to Beauty, the closest thing to Truth, and constitutes, precisely, the organizing center of the life of a person, a society and a planet. A society without a soul therefore does not know the origin of the symbols that once injected meaning into it and the origin of the symbols that now govern it. swastica-ventana-de-piedra-del-templo-sagrado-swastika-situado-en-gokarna-la-india-141774902.webp Edited November 9, 2022 by Diavolo 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
