Nordland - the true cult of the earth

The name swastika comes from Sanskrit ( Devanagari : स्वस्तिक ), and denotes "conducive to well being or auspicious". [10] [7] In Hinduism, the clockwise symbol is called swastika symbolizing surya (sun), prosperity, and good luck, while the counterclockwise symbol is called sauvastika symbolizing night or tantric aspects of Kali . [7] In Jainism, a swastika is the symbol for Suparshvanatha – the 7th of 24 Tirthankaras (spiritual teachers and saviours), while in Buddhism it symbolizes the auspicious footprints of the Buddha .
