The origion of the Swastika symbol

 In many Buddhist literatures the swastika symbol is also the first of the 65 auspicious symbols on the footprint of the Buddha. The image of Lord Buddha depicts swastika on each of the toes of his feet. Buddhists have actually borrowed the swastika symbol from the Hindus.

The swastika symbols also often been used to mark the beginning of all the Buddhist texts. Buddhist swastika symbol is more often viewed as a sign of infinity, affluence, abundance and long life. It holds great importance in the Buddhist tradition and thus, this symbol can be found on almost all the Buddhist sites including the temples and monasteries.
