In the modern western world this truly ancient symbol may evoke negative emotions but the true meaning is the complete opposite.
Here withing the walls of holy Tirtha Empul the swastika, as a Hindu symbol represents the Brahman in its energy manifestation; Shakti.
For more than 8000 years this image has symbolized goodness. It still does for most of the world. Hopefully it will again for all.
