Learn about the significance of Hindu Swastika

If depicted in a spiritually correct manner, the Hindu Swastika has the ability to attract and emit positive spiritual energy

In our Fortnightly of 1-15 January 2022, we had published a research on Swastika conducted by Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay’s (MAV) team that participated in an International Conference and received the ‘Best Paper Award’. We reproduce relevant portions of this research.

Depending on the context, the Swastika is recognised as one of the most auspicious or heavily vilified symbols in the world. It originated as a sacred symbol in Hinduism, and it was also used by other Eastern religions. Despite its sacred origins, the Swastika has become so widely associated with Nazi Germany that any contemporary usage of the symbol frequently incites controversy. So, is the Swastika symbol spiritually beneficial to society or not, and should it be embraced or discarded ?

Our spiritual research shows that every symbol or sign emits subtle vibrations (depending on whether it is straight, tilted or inverted; the corners and ends – straight or curved; with or without dots; thickness of the arms; colour used).

These subtle vibrations can be positive or negative. We need to study the spiritual vibrations which any symbol emits, since these vibrations will have an effect (which can be positive or negative) on the people who embrace it. These were the conclusions of the paper presented by Mr Sean Clarke of Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay.

In the research it was found that if depicted incorrectly like the Nazi Swastika, it emits negative vibrations. On the other hand, if depicted in a spiritually correct manner like the Hindu Swastika, it was found that the Swastika has the capability of attracting and emitting positive spiritual energy. In such a form, it can be utilised decoratively for auspicious occasions as it provides a spiritual healing effect on the immediate environment.
