In the Clouds

Congratulations! You have discovered the hidden section in which I have decided to withhold any embarassingly impudent self-descriptions bar one exception; I lick feet.

Roughly organised into politics, music, visuals, thoughts (mine), ideas (others), people, and places from 2013 onwards.

Here's the questioning box.

My existence elsewhere.

The swastika has been seen as a symbol for good luck by people in both ancient and modern times. A closer look at the etymology of this Sanskrit word, however, reveals a deeper meaning. When the Sanskrit scholar and spiritual teacher, P.R. Sarkar visited Germany in 1979 he gave the following interpretation of the word:

  • su - means “good”
  • asti - means “to be, to exist”
  • ik - means “what is in existence, and will continue to exist”
  • a - denotes feminine gender

So “Swastika” means a ‘good existence’ that is not to be destroyed and that remains in a good condition. He went on to say that its deeper meaning is permanent victory. In the context of the cultural origins of the swastika, this means the victory of dharma - the fundamental spiritual nature of humanity.
