Swastika

The most powerful symbol in the earth can be noticed in millions of homes in India and other parts of the world.  Hitler had made it famous by using it as his Flagship.  Swastika is known for its strength and good luck and has been in place for nearly thousands of years ago.

Origin:

Swastika’s origin seems to be way behind 3000 years ago nor until it came into place around 1000 BC. It was first used by Sumerian. In India according to d’Alviella, the word swastika is composed by the Sanskrit su = good, and asti = to be, with the suffix ka. The arms of the Indian swastika were angled in a clockwise direction (from the center).

Benefits:

One can use the magical power of Swastika for one’s personal benefit by energizing it in a proper way in a proper metal combination and in a right nakshatra. In numerology, those born under fate numbers 1, 3 and 9 can use it to their advantage if the Sun is positioned well in the birth chart.

Controversy:

These symbols always end up in controversies.  Especially in North America, where these symbol were used in numerous products unintentionally.

Extract from Wikipedia:

When a ten-year-old boy in Lynbrook, New York bought a set of Pokémon cards imported from Japan in 1999, his parents complained after finding that two of the cards contained the Manji symbol which is the mirror image of the Nazi swastika. This also caused a lot of concern amongst fans from Jewish communities. Nintendo of America announced that the cards would be discontinued, explaining that what was acceptable in one culture was not necessarily so in another; their action was welcomed by the Anti-Defamation League who recognised that there was no intention to be offensive but said that international commerce meant that “isolating [the Swastika] in Asia would just create more problems.”[80]

In 2002, Christmas crackers containing plastic toy pandas sporting swastikas were pulled from shelves after complaints from consumers in Canada. The manufacturer, based in China, explained the symbol was presented in a traditional sense and not as a reference to the Nazis, and apologized to the customers for the cross-cultural mix-up. In 2007, Spanish fashion chain Zara has withdrawn a handbag from its stores after a customer in Britain complained swastikas were embroidered on it. The bags were made by a supplier in India and inspired by commonly used Hindu symbols, which include the swastika.

In 2003, the Anti-Defamation League expressed outrage when a Hong Kong fashion chain, Izzue, released a range of clothes featuring swastikas.
