      It's not what you think...

      How the world loved the swastika - until Hitler stole it

      The swastika symbol is ancient and meant 'well-being'. Obviously the nazis used it and ruined it - same with other symbols.

      Swastika, the sacred symbol in India.

        Yea I understand it as a rune that preceded the Nazi party, but still, its use in any context is a bit of a provocation, particularly on a message board that gets pretty consistent criticism for a lack of diversity.

          Dude, he's obviously Indian. Lets not always jump at every chance we can to police people and become offended. Sincerely, this Jew.

            I don't jump at every chance. I just noted that its not great optics considering the context. Sincerely, an opinion in a thread of opinions.

          Ah, i'm sorry.

          enters spiritual guru mode

          Either you like something(attachment) or dislike something(hatred). When something you like doesn't happen, you become miserable. When something you dislike happens, you become miserable. All this liking and disliking that goes on in the mind manifests itself as physical sensation on the body.

          After all, all physical sensations that occur on our body are impermanent i.e. after they have arisen they will pass away too. So, why become attached to these impermanent sensations or why have an aversion toward these sensations?

          This world is all attachment, strongest block to realization.


          Btw, thanks for pointing out. Already fixed. Love from India. :)
