Meaning of Holy Swastika

Posted by kathavarta on February 2, 2009

It is one of the oldestsymbols that mankind has known around the world. Swastika the word has its root in the world Suwasti meaning ‘all is well’.

If you see it closely then you would find a cross with extended arms in the Swastika symbol. There are two ways drawing Swastikas the Malevolent way and the Feminine way.


In the Malevolent way the symbol would like similar to the Swastika symbol drawn above, the arms move in the clockwise direction. This is true symbole of the entire cosmos. Each line of the Swastika represents a God and can be understood from the following table.

LINES………………………………………GODS/GODDESS
Main Vertical line………………………Devi Parvati
Main Horizontal line…………………….Lord Shiva
Centre of the cross……………………..Lord Ganesha
Upper horizontal extension……………….Lord Brahma
Lower vertical extension…………………Devi Saraswati
Lower horizontal extension……………….Lord Vishnu
Upper vertical extension…………………Devi Mahalakshmi

The symbol also represents the four petals of the Mooladhara Chakra as per the Tantric scriptures.

Right handed Swastika is used in all the Hindu rituals like opening new account books, marriage, Mundan ceremony and other religious rituals.

None in whole of the three cosmos can handle Shakti once awakened except Lord Shiva in the Ugra rupa.
-Mamsadayini Tantra

The left-handed or feminine Swastika is rarely used and is considered inauspicious. Tantrics following the Vamamarga (left handed path or sexually oriented Tantra) ise this feminine Swastika to invoke Goddess Kali for getting the best results of the Chakra-puja.

Each line of this Swastika is also has great relevance and has the feminine energies.

LINES………………………………………GODS/GODDESS
Main Vertical line………………………Devi Chinnamasta
Main Horizontal line…………………….Devi Kakalmalini
Centre of the cross……………………..Devi Kali
Upper horizontal extension……………….Devi Sodasi
Lower vertical extension…………………Devi Matangi
Lower horizontal extension……………….Devi Astibakshi
Upper vertical extension…………………Devi Mamsapriya

Thus a person who is not able and perfect cannot awaken the Shakti and unless the individual is pure he would not be able to handle the Shakti’s thus invoked.

This is the reason why Hitler failed miserably as he was an unstable person with high ambition and title understanding of occult sciences.

Swastika the symbol has been in use all around the ancient civilizations like Mayans, Mesopotamians, Sumerians, Chinese, Egyptian, Greece and Roman.
