Conclusion:
This article is intended to reclaim the lost significance and importance of mankind earliest symbol “Swastika”. Swastika is derived from the Sanskrit word svastika, "su" meaning "good," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix. Swastika signifies the symbol of good luck, prosperity, peace and fortune. After its association with German nazi’s, this ancient symbol has faced a sad transition from a good luck symbol to symbol of evil and adversity. Swastika is still widely used as a good luck symbol in Asian countries like India, China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia etc. This symbol has a great spiritual meaning and significance in Hinduism and its offshoot religions like Buddhism and Jainism
