The SWASTIKA (widely known as the symbol of the Nazi) is only misunderstood. It is said that it was given to man by deities not of this world. The swastika symbolizes so much more than what the Nazis planned. It existed as a symbol of good fortune thousands of years before the Nazis even existed. The symbol is to many cultures an important one, representing their history and beliefs. The Nazis, by taking the swastika, annihilated the significance of the ancient symbol. Today, the swastika is to most people a symbol of evil, a symbol of demise, and a symbol of ruination. But from its origin, the swastika was initially and still is a symbol of life, a symbol of joy, good luck, and love, and is so powerful that it can be used to ward off enemies and create peacehttp://reclaimtheswastika.com/

The true meaning of this sacred symbol 

The word swastika is derived from the Sanskrit svastika (in Devanagari, स्वस्तिक), meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on persons and things to denote good luck. It is composed of su- (cognate with Greek ευ-, “eu-“), meaning “good, well” and asti a verbal abstract to the root as “to be”; svasti thus means “well-being”. The suffix -ka forms a diminutive, and svastika might thus be translated literally as “little thing associated with well-being”.

The swastika symbol is one of the oldest symbols on the Earth and can be found in all religions and traditions, on all continents!

Photographic preview of my forthcoming multisensory installation tentatively titled Boaz and Jachin.

The pillar Boaz is representational of the sonic experience, relating the structural and balanced number of four within the cycle of ten, describing the condensation of low frequencies into physical matter. Boaz stands ten feet tall, with four sides, each containing ten arches.

The two pillars will describe the nature of physical and ephemeral reality as perceived through the senses and metamathematical theory, particularly sonic vibration (sound) and electromagnetic radiation (light).

Joachin will be completed in the next month or two, and will be followed by a full video documentation of the joint experience (in at least one incarnation) as well as multiple opportunities for live viewing in both indoor and outdoor settings.

Stay tuned!

The Swastika has become something it is not. The original word - Sanskritsvastika “Su” meaning “good” and “asti” meaning “to be” The Swastika is believed to have been used as early as 1000BC, found on coins and pottery. Several different cultures and beliefs used this symbol to express life and good luck. But now it isn’t so much so. Although there are very few alive today who were alive at the time before Hitler’s reign, maybe it’s time to slowly bring this symbol back to it’s original form, and let the public get accustomed once more to good meaning. 

On Certain Aspects of Culture Stealing

Culture is literally supposed to be shared, if you ask the majority of the people within a culture they will tell you that they love seeing their culture being spread and appreciated, it’s not “making fun” of a culture when someone who is not Indian wears Indian clothes or fashion, nor is it with any other culture, it is a sign of appreciation, if they were to be making fun of it, it would be blatant not wearing a cultures fashion. That’s like Italians being mad that many people eat pizza or Scottish people getting angry at non scots wearing kilts (they actually welcome it quite a bit as its a sign of APPRECIATING ANOTHER CULTURE). Okay I do understand certain religious symbols being overused, but look at the Christian cross that is used by many non Christians. Also don’t say that “ohh but that was a symbol for something else before” cause guess what?! So was the swastika, ya know what that symbolizes before the nazis, peace the swastika is literally a symbol for peace that is now recognized as the opposite, so saying that the cross was used before Christianity is like me wearing a swastika and saying oh it meant peace before the nazis used it, it’s still fucked up. Now I’m not saying stop wearing crosses, I’m saying don’t judge others who are doing the same as you with a different culture or religion, cause at the end of the day you should be proud your culture has spread to such a vast audience.
