gamalı hacın ne işi var bende merak ettim

hope this has not been mistaken for the nazi swastika. that one is a mirror image of the ancient vedic hindu symbol which is btw again called the swastik.

gamalı haç budizimde bir simgedir aslında.

This is not what you think it is! Although it follows the same Aryan roots. That sadist idiot gave it an altogether different meaning, it is a holy symbol for us Hindus

Hi Vikramaditya Rao.

I'd just like to clarify to you that the Swastika is pronounced "Svastik" but its still written with an 'a' in the end

It is because Sanskrit and even 'pure' Hindi are alpha-syllabary . That is why Yog is written as 'Yoga', Gautam Buddh is written as Gautama Buddha.

So the 'a' at the end of Hindi/Sanskrit words is not supposed to be spoken loudly.

..and the nazi swastika is not the mirror image of this one, but facing the same way.

The swastika is used in many cultures btw. In ancient Europe it was also a sacred symbol for the Germanic, Nordic, Celtic and Baltic peoples.

O.K. So much for all that GYAAN! Let's all get back to whatever it is that we were doing!!
