The Swastika is an ancient Hindu symbol for auspiciousness. This symbol is over 6000 years old.

The original word is svaasti, which is a Sanskrit word, made up of two syllables, sva, which means own or self, self here meaning the Overself.

Hitler took it and turned it on an angle and used it as a symbol of the Third Reich. He misused an ancient sacred symbol infused with thousands of years of sacred energy; thus the misuse rebounded on him.
