Ancient Symbols

The Original Meaning
The word “swastika” comes from the Sanskrit svastika – “su” meaning “good,” “asti” meaning “to be,” and “ka” as a suffix.

Until the Nazis used this symbol, the swastika was used by many cultures throughout the past 3,000 years to represent life, sun, power, strength, and good luck

Ancient symbols and words have lost there meaning and have come something they’ve never supposed to be. Normally, when you see Swastika you think of the Nazi Regime as we’re taught in high school. But dears, we’ve been around long before that time. There was a time where symbols had beautiful meanings and as man-kind grew they became ugly just like man-kind themselves. 

I love studying the ancients. I feel right at home while reading about their lives and wish I had the power to observe them. Not like a stalker, but an intrigued nerd with a history obsession. Why is it that in school we aren’t taught more of the ancient symbols and communication? We can’t say there isn’t any documents nor evidence of their communication systems. Why hide the meaning of these symbols that our ancients left behind? Why only teach us one sided studies?
