Swastika is Pre-Aryan, Dates Back 11,000 years

Swastika – the Indian symbol of peace and continuity that Hitler co-opted for his twisted Aryan supremacy theory – is much older than believed, older than the Aryans and even the Indus Valley Civilization, says a team of top-notch researchers from some of the most prestigious institutions in India.

The researchers say the Swastika dates back at least 11,000 years and have traced its spread to western and Middle-Eastern civilizations. In fact, one of their key findings is that a Ukranian Swastika, believed to date back 12,000 years to the Paleolithic Age, may not be this old, say sources.

The team will announce these and other “breakthroughs” at the Indian Council of Cultural Relations (ICCR) on July 8, exhibiting all the evidence they have collected. They will also answer queries.

The research was like solving a jigsaw puzzle in the maze of history, involving study of codes and symbols that would excite Dan Brown.

Based at IIT-Kharagpur and led by one of its most senior professors, it was conducted by Sandhi, an HRD ministry-sponsored effort to amalgamate ancient Indian knowledge systems with contemporary science.

The riddle was pieced together by scholars from many IITs, NITs, Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology-Ahmedabad, School of Planning and Architecture-Bhopal, and Jadavpur University . In tracking the antiquity of the Swastika, the resear chers came across a staggering discovery -that the Rig Veda, generally associated with Aryan civilization, existed much before that, dating back to the pre-Harappan times in the form of Shruti that were orally handed down through the Indus Valley civilization.

“We have found the most mature and geometrically ordered Swastika in the pre-Harappan times in the form of seals. We have also been able to trace the mention of the Swastika in the Vedas around the same time. These are scintillating findings that will help us announce that the Indian civilization is far more ancient than what is written in accepted history books, mostly by Europeans,” said Joy Sen, a faculty member at IIT-Kgp faculty and lead project investigator.

The team will show how the Swastika migrated from India -through the Tartar Mongoloid route via Kamchatka to the Americas (hence the plethora of Swastikas in the Aztec and Mayan civilisations), and through the Western land route to Finland, Scandinavia, British Highlands and Europe where the symbol is present in varying shapes of the cruciform.

“After dividing the world into nine quadrants into which Swastika moved from India, we retraced its footprints and have been able to graphically prove our claim through ancient seals, inscriptions, imprints, and religious symbolism in these countries. We will reveal it in great detail,” Sen said.

Unfortunately talk of Swastika cannot avoid the horrors of its hijack by Hitler to suit his Aryan supremacy theory. “It inspired Schopenhauer, Friedrich Nietzsche and their progeny , Adolf Hitler, who started an inverted agenda of anti-Semitism based on a falsified Aryan invasion myth through seven years of war, terror, corruption and extermination,” Sen said.

    There is no specific ARYAN CIVILIZATIONAL /CULTURAL AGE/ERA in human history. And there was no ARYAN RACE as such. The theory of Aryan Race was mooted by Europeans to conquer and justify their rule over their colonies, especially INDIA….

  2. Dinesh k jani ph d says:

    What is Pre-Aryan here. Whole world, even bloody England accepted this useless aryan-dravadian theory had been imported in this country for their benefits. Still we are believing that theory. Here analysys about Swastik is ok but why to mention Pre-Aryan, Indus civilization. This clearly indicates poor colonial mind set of author. May god change his mind soon.

  7. chakravarthy says:

    The concept of aryan was planted by british, there is nothing called aryan. British have nourished the versions of aryan origin, we indian stuck with slave mentality live in the fools paradise “master was right, they have come to liberate us”. There is no archeological or geological evidence or genetic traces of aryan civilization to prove this fabricated theory. There is enough material is also available you may refer to mr ganesh (you tube video at iit madras) for archeological related and mr srikanth taillege genetic related.

    Respected Sir/ Madam, Pranam, I have been a regular reader of your portal & found it to be a great site for such valueable information for everyone. I wish you continue to do so & publish more info on all spiritual areas. Now that Govt is also giving a full thrust to promote spiritualism etc, utilize such an opportunity and take it further. warm regards, SK Panda

  9. Caturbahu das bhakti says:

    Swastika is on Krsna’s right heal….that means is is eternal. Aryan culture easily dates back to Lord Ramacandra, some 1.6 million yrs or so.

  10. vellanki dasaradhi says:

    I research the researchers and scholoars to publish such findings as early as possible to remove the doubts about the greatness of the Ancient India before Rigveda. I have several times come accros articles and videos telling and showing that India.s history and culture are greater than any other country but till now no concrete evidence has been shown or published. It is high time that such finding should be made public immediately.

  11. R P Naidu says:

    good

  12. U V S Menon says:

    Dear Sir,

    It’s great to know more about our glorious past even by indirect approach. But , if there are some reference to the Vedic Texts, you should be able to quote the Sanskrit text with reference numbers. Pl do that and make us all rightly proud of them.

  13. Jagadish Prasad Manna says:

    The divine word / symbol of Swastika represents the combination of two words Swa + Sthiti, where Swa stands for Self i.e. Soul or Atma, and, Sthiti means the state. The symbol of Swastika represents the time cycle known as Kalpa, divided into four quadrants like the four quadrants of a clock-dial. The first quadrant i.e. from 12 to 3 represents the Satya Yuga, the second quadrant i.e. 3 to 6 represents the Treta Yuga, and, similarly 6 to 9 as Dwapar Yuga and 9 to 12 as Kali Yuga. Thus, the symbol Swastika signifies the state of the soul thru’ the four Yugas. In Satya Yuga the atma attains the deity or devata state and gets constantly degraded due to the effect of vices by loosing divine qualities, and, attains the state of Kshatriya, Vaishya and Shudra, as the atma passes thru’ Treta Yuga, Dwapar Yuga & Kali Yuga respectively. At the end of the Kali Yuga the Supreme Soul known as God Father or Parampita Parmatma the Shiva, transcends to this earth to revive the souls of the lost divine qualities for the next time cycle, which is exact repetition of the previous time cycles, and the play continues repeatedly.

    REALTY AND TRUTH IS COMING OUT GIVINEN THE OPPORTUNITY SINCE IN DEPENDENCE OF INDIA

  15. ganapathy says:

    yes i think vavamenon is absolutely right

  16. PROF. DR. O. P. SHARMA says:

    Well, it is easy to negate anything and everything by any of us and I will not get into the quagmire of making controvertible statements about any of ethnic and regional denominations of India; perhaps the ONLY country on the earth where maximum diversity of languages, castes, religions and races co-exists, to date, without any major social conflict, which can threaten the existence of India. The question is NOT whether the Aryans existed or they are only a myth; the question is where from did this ancient wisdom of our Rishis sprang? Today, even if very graded, there is a realization in the West of the good points of the Indian philosophy and they are gravitating towards its acceptance.
    Well, if many of these ‘myths’ ( of Aryans, Swastika, et. al can be believed to be have been ‘planted’ by the British during their reign of occupation, then in the same vein, we may also believe that many cerebral and spirited ‘denials’ have been ‘planted’, earlier by the Mughal invaders and occupants, then by the communists of the erstwhile USSR and later of China, and which are now being pushed by the Indian Leftists.
    The sensible thing, about history, is to discuss and explore, with an open, unbiased and objective mind, any new thought or discovery, without jumping to condemn it.

  17. Avadhesh says:

    Please note the Nazi Swastika is NOT same as we recognize it. Ours or Vedic Swastika points clockwise while Hitler’s goes the other way — anticlockwise.

  18. Krishna Gupta says:

    Super wonderful divine information I read from your portal. Thank you. Krishna Gupta.

  19. Krishna Gupta says:

    Just to simplify your portal we learn good things from our Vedic culture.

  20. ganesh chandra sahoo says:

    yes Indian civilization is very old and everybody has to accept it, even now it is being observed in Indian rituals etc.

  21. Mr Brucananda Miniraj says:

    When I first visited India in my hippie days I landed in Chennai (then Madras) and outside the airport I saw a man in a very old ‘beetle’ Volkswagon with a Swastika painted on his door. I was confused i.e. ‘…OK…German car created in the Hitler era…Swastika on the door…What is going on?…’ I had no knowledge of the true nature of the Swastika and its history. Thank goodness a helpful local explained it to me, and from that point I always saw it as a positive, spiritual symbol.

  22. JKV Raghu says:

    We all think the Vedic Swastika that is doble S shaped is good and vice versa.One fact is There are several places in the world like Egypt,Mexico where local knowledge and developments took place.With all great knowledge,India was conquered by Muslims and then Christians.Even to this day some vedic knowledge of India is used by others than Indians.When India was getting Independence, many dont know or agree that Britain is letting it go coz it is becoming a economic burden and Churchill said it is going into the hands of bad people-exact words I dont remember.And we were like that sofar and becoming better now.The sum of this is,we were great in knowledge but we have lost.Where as many countries have best quality of life than us.And we must become greater or equal atleast.
