Buddhist Symbol: Swastika

The swastika symbol is of great antiquity and common to many countries. It was the monogram of Hindu Gods Vishnu and Shiva in India, the battle-axe of Thor in Scandinavian inscriptions, and a ancient symbol with the Peruvians. The term Swastika is derived from the Sanskrit su "well" and as "to be," meaning "so be it," and denoting resignation of spirit. It is the sign for "ten thousand" in Chinese character, a Mystic Knot and a variation of the Diamond Patterns in Buddhism. It is said to have come from the beginning of time. It is described as "the accumulation of lucky signs possessing ten thousand effigies." As a Buddhist symbol, swastika is regarded as the seal of Buddha's heart, and is usually placed on the heart of Shakyamuni Buddha, as it is believed to contain within it the Buddha consciousness. It is also said to be the first of the 65 auspicious signs on the footprint of Buddha.
