    Perhaps the very un-Teutonic temple just doesn’t want to get firebombed by Jack van Tongeren and his mates. As insurance, it’s pretty cheap.

    Is it just me, or is there something a little ‘brothelesque’ about that temple? Replace the doors, strip off the signage, pop a fluro sign out the front and et viola – Teutonic Lane.

    I’m sure Madam Helga will welcome all comers who are turned off by the Churchillian austerity of Tudor Lane in Highgate.

    You’re showing a lack of peripheral vision TLA.
    Have a look at the wikepedia entry on the subject. The use of the swastika is still current in much of the world as a religious/social/political symbol in it’s original significance.
    It’s quite sad that an Austrian madman and his cohorts, coupled with a lack of wider knowledge in the general community, could have created a monstrosity out of a symbol of well being.
    That there are lame brains, even in Israel, who still subscribe to the ideology of nazism, says much for human “progress”.

    I notice thare is another symbol over the door that appears to be the Wheel of Life.

    are we going to have a go at the Rotarians as well?

    I’m looking for a lion, and maybe a square and compasses, but I don’t see them.

    If they are there, then I suspect this is the meeting place of all the secret cyptofascist organizations, where they joining together to plot the final overthrow of civilization, or something

    it’s a conspiracy I tell you

    did you see today’s Wikipedia? the Nazis were scone-hot on anti-smoking and “led the first public anti-smoking campaign in modern history”. the mad Austrian used to smoke up to 45 fags a day, it says.

    TMA “was unhappy because both Eva Braun and Martin Bormann were smokers and was concerned over Hermann Göring’s continued smoking in public places. He was angered when a statue of Göring that showed a cigar in his mouth was commissioned. Hitler is often considered to be the first national leader to advocate nonsmoking”.

    colourwheelz -you can hear the sign? Synaesthesia, or what?

    I think the sign above the door is Samsara: the eight-fold path; and the squiggly bit around it is pronounced “auhm”, or “om”.

    The Nazi’s literally turned the swastika around when they appropriated it for their purposes. Rolly’s right — it’s still used in Buddhist countries/places. And Skink, the Rotarians stole the wheel thing from the Buddhists too ;)

    I used to see the religious Swastika symbol in Asia displayed anti clockwise…hoping it wasn’t just the drugs I did look it up and found an article that reads :

    Since the Nazis use of the swastika, some people are trying to differentiate the two meanings of the swastika by varying its direction – trying to make the clockwise, Nazi version of the swastika mean hate and death while the counter-clockwise version would hold the ancient meaning of the symbol, life and good-luck.

  26. I thought it was a myth that it was turned around, trying to create a “good” swastica. As we can see from both these examples, they didn’t turn it.
