How do you know this sign?

We must admit that today this signs that known as the “swastika” is the symbol for Racists. Even these days it has become a symbol for Satanist. But it seems these impressions are wrong.

In book “Ancestry and religions of ancient Iranians”*  writer says:

The signs that is called swastika, in fact is not a broken cross and in the Christianity it is not regarded to respect. Cross dimensions are also not the same and only two lines are equal and most looks like a human body, where opens hands.

Sometimes this sign due to Hitler’s Nazi Party used and it was on the arms of party’s members and SS soldiers, because the Nazis had begun a hard and irreconcilable battle with Jews, it has been called anti-Semitic. It must be understood that this naming is not correct too and it is a misplaced phrase. Being anti-Semitic for this symbol was began that the overall recognition about this symbol with the fame of contention and fight with Jews was provided together. And thus the minds of people made and interpreted this name.

This sign is also known as Aryan symbol. However, in many civilizations such this indication has been found. Although it has thousands of years history in Iran and India, but this sign is seen all over the world including Africa, Asia (both East Asia and West Asia) and Europe. Even, other symbol that they are similar to this sign in areas of Iran and India found that had more past.

Nazis, during they were powerful, prejudice and racial superiority regarded philosophy. Their advertising and training dedicated to this work and they gave symbolic value of their being Aryans to this sign. But it does not seem that the approach to this sign in very ancient time has appropriateness with the Nazis approach!

Herzfeld had effects to finding and nomenclature of the sign. Although this sign is discussed with a name like “Swastika”, “cross” and etc. Some one knows this sign a symbol of happiness and good fortune and others have called it a symbol of the four elements. Associated this sign with Mithra religion is one of other cases that is expressed.

But it seems that these signs should be limited to a nation or a faith and religion; because its effects are seen in all civilizations. The challenge that arises is that this sign almost simultaneously is seen in different parts of world. Especially when we know it was ancient world. And the question is: how???? These cases have caused some people to know it related with extraterrestrial beings.

Qeshm

I want to start write some series posts about tourism in some cities of Iran. You can know about beautiful places in those cities and of course if you don’t have any good idea for your trip or coming vacation, you can choose one of these cities. Today I start first series about an island, its name – as you see on title – is Qeshm.

Qeshm is the largest island in the Persian Gulf, with rocky coastlines that protects a mountainous and often beautiful interior. The coast is dotted with small villages and towns. Qeshm Island is free duty zone.The simplest way is to get there by Airlines or on a speedboat at Bandar Abbas main harbor. There are lots of them departing each few minutes. The ride takes between 20 to 40 minutes depending on the boat. Unlike Kish Island you need a visa for Iran if you are arriving from another country. Qeshm Island is very long (approximately 150kms from east to west), and its main attractions are far away from each other, and therefore taxis are strongly recommended.

Today I introduce you just 3 very beautiful places from Qeshm.

1- Stars Valley

It has about 2 million years old and it’s the unique masterpiece nature of the island.Stars valley -locals are named it fallen star- is one of the most beautiful effects of erosion on the island that the locals believe, after falling a star and effect of heavy impact, soil rose up then became dry in any shapes.Features and spectacular Star Valley led the valley as part of the geopark of Qeshm island included natural monuments in the UNESCO to be registered. Qeshm geopark with beautiful natural and historical monuments is the only geopark in the Middle East .

2-Xarbes Caves

This cave is remains of the large village Xarbes that now completely destroyed and except cemeteries and a lake, nothing isn’t left of it.This village at least until 1400 years ago,was a good place for life, explorers and ship guards.They are series of interconnected caves, originally formed by geologic erosion and expanded by human back to the Median age (1,000 B.C) continued up to recent centuries. Many different applications are considered for the caves, from somewhere for sheltering from pirates to somewhere for worshiping Gods; Xarbes is also said to be an ancient Mithraism temple and its original name was probably Xorpas (Xor=Sun & Pas=Guard). There are some cravings of holy ancient symbols inside the caves.
Xarbes caves are one of the Qeshm Island’s main tourist attractions.

3-Harra sea forest

Harra ( Mangrove ) species whose scientific name is derived from Iranian sage and philosopher, Avicenna, 3 to 6 foot trees that live in salt water. In fact mangrove tree is a natural desalination plant. Mangrove forests due to ecological conditions are favorable, safe habitat for migratory birds from the tropical regions. Wet and mangrove tidal zones, habitats for clams, crustaceans and fishes are created; and it is a suitable place for poultry and fish-eating marine especially white marine heron.

Hafiz Tomb

 
My heart no longer brooks my hand; sages, aid for God my woe!                                                   Else,alas! my secret deep, son the curious world must know
The bark we steer has standard: O breeze auspicious swell                                                            We yet may see once more the Friend we love so well
O bounteous man, since Heaven sheds o’er thee blessings mild                                                    Inquire, one day at least, how fares misfortune’s child 
What holds in peace this twofold world, let this twofold sentence show:                                    “Amity to every friend, courtesy to every foe”
Upon the way of honour, impeded was my range                                                                              If this affect thee, strive my destiny to change
Seek drunkenness and pleasure till times of strait be o’er:                                                             This alchemy of life can make the beggar Kore
Submit; or burn thou taper-like, e’en from jealousy o’er much:                                                     Adamant, no less than wax, melts beneath that charmer’s touch
When fair ones talk in Persian, the streams of life out well                                                             This news to pious Pirs, My Saki, haste to tell
Since Hafiz not by his own choice this his wine-strained cowl did win                                         Shaikh, who hast unsullied robes, hold me innocent of sin

 Hafiz
