The Swastika has been considered a symbol of goodness/something good in Indian culture since very ancient times. That is why, before performing any auspicious task, the swastika symbol is marked and worshiped. The word swastika is made up of Su + A + K (सु+अस+क). ‘Su’ means good, ‘A’ means ‘power’ or ‘existence’ and ‘K’ means ‘Karta’ or doer. Thus, the word ‘Swastik’ means ‘good’ or ‘marshal’.

In the swastika, there are two straight lines intersecting each other, which later turn. Even then, these lines are slightly bent at their ends.

This figure of swastika can be of two types. The first swastika, in which the lines turn to our right, pointing forward. This is called ‘swastika’ (卐). In the second figure, the lines turn to our left, pointing backward. This is called ‘Vamavart Swastika’ (वामावर्त स्वस्तिक). This ‘counter-clockwise swastika’ was inscribed in Hitler’s flag of Germany.

But this swastik, if we say that it was used 7000 years ago in Bulgaria, you will be surprised. But this is true.

In an exhibition going on in the museum of Vratsa city of north-western Bulgaria, some clay artifacts of 7000 years old have been placed on which the symbol of Swastik (卍) is made. These artifacts were found during the excavation of a religious sacrificial tank of a village named Altimir near the town of Vratsa.

The swastika is the avayam of Sanskrit language, according to Paninian grammar, it has been counted in the avayak terms on the 54th order in Vayakaran Kaumudi. This swastika term was formed by the combination of the prefix ‘su’ and ‘asti’ avayya (order 71)
