Thoughts on the Swastika
The subtle lines going off from each dot intrigued me.Swastikas are
mostly used in India as a part of Hindu rituals. But the idea presented
elsewhere here that this might be a Tibetan swastika gave me the idea of
looking up both Sanskrit and Tibetan letters, and as a result, I think I
found a fit - the Tibetan letter “da.” The following is excerpted from
Reading Tibetan Manuscripts, at
“The da drag, or ‘strong da’ was a standard feature of Old Tibetan
orthography. ...Initally the da drag may have been a fundamental element
of grammer. If so it had lost this aspect by the time of the earliest
extant documents. ...the da drag had a phonetic role indicating the way
the nga, ra and la were pronounced when followed by certain other
syllables. This can still be seen in Classical Tibetan. ...But some
syllables which orginally had the da drag act as if they still have it...
Thus the da drag lived on as a phonetic element after its disappearance
from writing. ...The da drag is said to have been removed from the
official script by the second reformation of the written language... It
still appears as late as the 18th century in certain sutras, especially
those of the Prajñāpāramitā (Perfection of Wisdom) genre; here the da
drag seems to have been preserved as a kind of sacred orthography
associated with these sūtras.”
So how does this information apply to this crop formation? Well, in the
crop swastika, the “da drag” is a subtext to this formation - it’s made
within a pattern of the fallen crop lay, not from the standing crop. It’s
also repeated four times, at every dot, which emphasizes it as important.
And, the curves at the end of the arms, and the dots themselves,
emphasize that this is NOT a Nazi swastika, which has already been
commented on here. In India those dots are called “rangoli,” and they are
celebratory and signify beauty and auspiciousness - i.e. the opposite of
the Nazi symbol. So the circlemakers have been very clear about that
point, I think.
As for the “da drag,” if that’s what those subtle lines indicate then
this is a very profound formation (then again it would be, wouldn’t it,
as it’s a giant freaking swastika). The point here is that the “da drag”
used to be a part of written Tibetan, but was removed from the writing.
Yet, it still subtly remains phonetically, i.e. in pronunciation, and is
still in use for the spiritual (historical) writings of Tibet. So the da
drag lines are actually meta - they are a part of the crop formation that
is talking about the crop formation.
And isn’t that meta-message about exactly what happened to the swastika?
For the swastika is no longer used as a written symbol - it’s even
outlawed in Germany. Yet for thousands of years, this symbol stood ONLY
for the very highest good. That’s why it is literally the only spiritual
symbol used by the Jains of India, who don’t even use Om. And the Hopi
used it widely to show their migrations and as a part of their cultural
history and teachings, and still do in their sacred ceremonies, as do a
number of native American tribes. It’s literally been found all over the
In Japan, it’s called “manji” and is a symbol for Dharma itself - the
divine law, the instrinsic order of sanity in the universe. And there,
it’s said not to have two directions of rotation, but rather a front and
a back - the front representing love and compassion, the first and
feminine aspects of Dharma, and then the back representing intelligence
and strength, the masculine aspects of Dharma (these aspects are termed
according to their natural energy signatures, so don’t get all agitated).
What we see here, therefore, is a celebratory swastika (dots or rangoli),
holding the Tibetan symbol (da) for something that is no longer written
but which holds the SAME essential positive spiritual meaning
acknowledged for thousands of years all around the world. In other words,
it’s time for the return of Dharma, which is a joyous thing, not only
because it is essentially good, but because the human race has associated
it with evil itself and refused to even acknowledge it as a fundamental
truth anymore - we’ve literally thrown the baby out with the bathwater.
As a result, look at our world.
Presumably, because Hitler saw himself as god, he chose the masculine
portrayal of the power of Dharma, enforcement, for the Nazis. Because
remember, he sold Nazism as good - that’s how he got so many true
believers in Germany. And so he used THE ancient symbol for the power of
the enforcement and protection of good itself, the rightward-facing
swastika. The power of the Dharma King, in other words. But in doing so,
he literally raped it out of the (western) human race, where it’s still
loathed as representing his mass-murdering madness and butchery. As a
result, it’s thousands of years of representing the exact opposite of
Nazism is still utterly, completely unknown in the Western world.
But who cares about a mere symbol? Just use another one, right? Why are
the circlemakers so intent on THIS one? With all their genius, they can’t
think of something else to use? Well, not so fast. In India, for example,
Sanskrit is made of ancient symbols that were seen in deep states of
meditation. They aren’t just shapes - they’re actual manifestations of
specific kinds of energy itself. Same with Hebrew. And so too with this
most ancient of all human symbols, the swastika, found all over the world
in virtually every ancient race on earth. Or, in the alternative, they
are shapes that were actually seen in nature somewhere, or in the sky -
swastika is an ancient symbol for the sun, too.
So to the circlemakers, this is not an “optional” symbol, raped by Hitler
though it certainly is. Rather it represents something, it manifests
something in particular - and that something is NOT Nazism. Rather, it’s
something they obviously believe is SO worth using that nothing else will
do, even though they surely know the incredible shock and initial horror
they will cause the western world when it’s seen it in a wheat field.
Because they believe that whatever it actually represents is something
desperately needed right now. And think about it - wouldn’t Hitler try to
deny that something from the human race if he could? And didn’t he?
(Except in India and Asia)
So somehow, in some way, laying it on this field as they have done helps
the earth - not another symbol, but this particular symbol. And seeing
this symbol also helps us, the human race, despite our current horror of
it - not another symbol, but this particular symbol. Hitler tried to
pervert it, but the only thing he accomplished was creating confusion
about it. Apparently, the circlemakers are not confused, and do not
believe he was able to change its essential nature, which they obviously
still find to be extremely valuable in a POSITIVE way for the earth, and
Further, we are seeing the symbol’s masculine side (to the Japanese,
we’re looking at the back (masculine side) of it, so it’s facing down).
So that could mean the circlemakers intend the the feminine front -
compassion and love - to be sent to the earth, which it faces, while
intelligence and strength is to be sent to those observing (the back of)
it - namely, us.
Or, that they intend to protect the earth by kicking our asses.
In any event, Dharma is returning - and the circlemakers are very happy
