Swastika- The Ancient Mysterious Symbol

When and where did the experts get it?

The English word swastika means, according to the modern dictionary, "an ancient solar symbol formed by two letters bent to the ninth degree of a cross." It was also the symbol of the Nazi Party in Germany. Despite such unpleasant relations, it is one of the oldest symbols in the world, and this symbol is found in all European countries as well as in India and beyond. Some people say that this island is among the remnants of Atlantis.

Carl William Bligen, who is famous for the excavations of Troy, unearthed a cylindrical lid at Troy Chahar, dated 2050–1900 BC, with a swastika on it. There were other signs as well. It is not clear why the Trojans valued this symbol so much, but it undoubtedly had some symbolic meaning.

Originally, Troy was an ancient ruined city located in northern Asia Minor. Its inhabitants were called Trojans. The Greeks fought with them for 10 years, which ended with the burning of Troy.

Apart from Troy, the swastika symbol has been found in many other places, most notably in the ancient Indus Valley culture. It is also mentioned in the Hindu book Ramayana, and it is also seen in ancient stone temples in India. It is also known as the "mark of the heart" of Gautama Buddha. It is also one of the 108 symbols on the feet of a statue of Gautama Buddha. It is found in China.

If the Gluzil symbols are authentic, then the history given by an archeologist, Saman Renak, about them is also authentic, which means that the swastika sign was also known to those people. This mark is also present on the clay pots, whose history is 5000 years old. Suffice it to say that this sign has been part of the glossary alphabet. In this sense, its use elsewhere may be symbolic.

What significance is attached to the swastika in the alphabet? We cannot say with certainty, but it is highly probable that the symbol was probably used for the sun, but its symbolic meaning is of no importance here. But what is more interesting than any conclusion is the fact that this sign has been found in North American dunes, in a Central American civilization, and on a small island in the Caribbean off the coast of Haiti. On this small island, archaeologist Godfrey J. Olson found a stone sphere inscribed with several swastikas that are estimated to be about two thousand years old. It may not be as old as the Trojans or their war, but still, the sign intrigues us.

As far as Europe, Asia, India, and China are concerned, it is likely that the use of the swastika symbol gradually spread from its central point to more areas where communication between these regions was possible, but this is not the case in North America, Central America, or the mentioned small islands of Vache as they are all separated by seas. Surprisingly, there are thousands of swastika symbols in these countries too, so naturally a researcher needs to know. How did it get there? But there is a possibility that human races, even if there is no contact between them, may have all used primitive designs such as the circle and the cross, since no shape is simpler than this, such as making a circle or two letters intersecting. It is easy to draw a swastika, but making a swastika sign is different and a little more complicated because cutting two lines at a 90-degree angle makes a cross, but the four ends of the cross are also bent at 90-degree angles. A mark called "swastika" is formed. Therefore, the ancient people could not make or copy such a sign without seeing it first, so the question is, how did the swastika sign appear on the other side of the sea, but the swastikas that are in America are still there? The question arises: at the time of Jesus' birth, i.e., at that time, how many ancient people who traveled on the seas were able to cross the sea and take this sign to America? If we speak frankly, it is not known, but many discoveries that have been made in America are evidence, proving that America was discovered long before Columbus, and day by day such evidence discoveries are increasing. Moreover, the Maud builders in North America had no contact with Central America.

At least there is no evidence now to show that they had contact. Despite this, the swastika symbol is found in both regions. Therefore, we must assume that the discovery of America was not an isolated and coincidental discovery, but that there must have been a nation that traveled the seas would have visited North and Central America many times, and it is not possible that the same There may have been separate visits that encouraged the natives to adopt the swastika as a purpose, for example, in the decoration of burial chambers, tombs, rooms, and statues. They did not use external symbols or signs for their graves and tools. Now the same question arises: was the swastika symbol brought to America by ancient people, and what was its purpose?

Was the swastika symbol a symbol of superstition in ancient nations? Or was it used to protect people from sudden calamities, mysterious forces, or diseases? Was it a sign of good fortune? Did the Nazi Party of Germany keep this sign to prove its nation's superiority? But it turned out to be a bad omen for him; the party suffered humiliation and disgrace, the Second World War broke out, and Hitler had to commit suicide. But everything may not be due to the swastika symbol; the reason may be something else. But what was so mysterious about the use of this sign? It is not yet known.
