Jaina Cross (haken Kruis)

Used by several Orders, and found in the abbeys of Great Britain and on the monuments of India. Its significations are many. This cross was adopted by the Jainas, a heterodox sect of the Hindus, who dissent from Brahmanism and deny the Vedas, and whose adherents are found in every province of Upper Hindustan. They are wealthy and influential, and form an important division of the population of India.

This symbol is also known as the Fylfot or Swastica. It is a religious symbol mentioned by Weaver in his Funeral Monuments, by Dr. H. Schliemann as having been found in the presumed ruins of Troy, by De Rossi and others in the Catacombs of Christian Rome, and there termed the Crux dissimulata, or concealed cross. It has been found on almost every enduring monument on the globe, of all ages, and in both hemispheres.

© 2017 The Ashlar Company “Hello!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you both for the rapid shipping and delivery of my order, but also for the high quality product.... then symbols pen I purchased for my boss was exquisite and the craftsmanship was very impressive.

When I presented the pen to my boss this morning - his eyes lit up like a little boy, and no sooner than he was able to say thank you to me, he was dashing around the office showing the pen off to his lodge brothers who also work at our company.

Thank you again for the wonderful product and quick shipping! ” Mrs Katrina, Dallas, PA
