"A true meaning..."
The earliest archaeological evidence of swastika-shaped ornaments dates back to the Indus Valley Civilization of Ancient India as well as Classical Antiquity.
Swastikas have also been used in various other ancient civilizations around the world.
It remains widely used in Indian religions, specifically in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, primarily as a tantric symbol to evoke shakti or the sacred symbol of auspiciousness.
The word "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit svastika - "su" meaning "good," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix. The swastika literally means "to be good".
Or another translation can be made: "swa" is "higher self", "asti" meaning "being", and "ka" as a suffix.
So the translation can be interpreted as
"being with higher self".
An unusual swastika, composed of the Hebrew letters Aleph and Resh, appears in the 18th century Kabbalistic work "Parashat Eliezer" by Rabbi Eliezer Fischl of Strizhov, a commentary on the medieval European Jewish eschatological book "Karnayim", ascribed to Rabbi Aharon of Kardina.
The symbol is enclosed by a circle and surrounded by a cyclic hymn in Aramaic. The hymn, which refers explicitly to the power of the Sun, as well as the shape of the symbol, shows strong solar symbolism.
According to the book, this mandala-like symbol is meant to help a mystic to contemplate on the cyclic nature and structure of the Universe.
The letters are the initial and final characters of the Hebrew word, אוֹר, or "light"
