I dunno bout the Buddist connotations, but the Sun
symbol we are talking about should be treated like
a circle, turn it upside down, backwards, 45 degrees
whatever, it means the same thing.... there is no anit
circle meaning...

My little rant ends so long as no one goes on spreading their
ignorance of the Germanic symbolism any further, people
have been spewing out this garbage for 50 years now, and
it makes it hard for Germanics that want to practice their
people's religion, or embrace their culture without being
called Nazi's...
