Actually, not "was", it is. In many Asian countries, the swastika is still a symbol of divinity and spirituality. You might see them drawn with red kumkum on both sides of doorsteps to welcome in good luck in Hindu households and in Jain temples in India, Buddhist temples in Japan, etc.
In Trinidad and Tobago West Indies it is used on the bedi when certain pujas are performed
health > healthy. "healthic"? swasth > swasthik(a) ?
I wonder why we find both svast and svasth.
