As an historian, I know that the use of the swastika predates the Nazi Fucktards by aeons, but I still always do a double take when I see it. In the buddhist tradition it actually signifies peace, harmony and eternity. In Hinduism “the two symbols represent the two forms of the creator god Brahma: facing right it represents the evolution of the universe (Devanagari: प्रवृत्ति, Pravritti), facing left it represents the involution of the universe (Devanagari: निवृत्ति, Nivritti). It is also seen as pointing in all four directions (north, east, south and west) and thus signifies grounded stability.”

Time to re-learn.
