The Secret Doctrine teaches that the swastika is a “summary in a few lines of the whole work of creation or evolution . . . from cosmo-theogony to anthropogony.” It is the worker’s hammer “which striketh sparks from flint,” flint symbolizing space while the sparks symbolize worlds. It is Thor’s hammer brought to consecrate the New Heaven and New Earth. The four-footed cross, which Thor uses to smite the head of the serpent of evil passions, becomes the root power of the macrocosm and the microcosm. The swastika, symbolizing the work of creation, also symbolizes the Builder or Architect. The Father of the Sacred Fire-Christ is Twastri or Joseph the Carpenter, a counterpart of Viswakarma, the “Father of the Gods” and Architect of the Universe. Viswakarma tied Surya (the sun) onto the swastika, cutting away a portion of his brightness, which really means he is sacrificing himself through the swastika, a symbol of himself. Thus he is the Hierophant Initiator on earth.
