‘Swastika’ - Great Sign of Indians

The ‘Swastika’ is known in the Indian subcontinent since 3500BC. Initially it appeared on the Harappan pottery for ornamental purpose, but later by about 2700BC, it is visible on the Harappan seals. Thus, it is non-Åryan in character. It means ‘well being’ in Sanskrit. But it is also said to represent four cardinal points and a circular or dynamic movement of universe. It is also related to the wheel of time and the recurrence of the seasons and is a symbolic representation of the god Kåla.
