Was Hitler a Hindu?

Interestingly, there are many similarities between Hitler’s beliefs and Hinduism.

Hitler Hinduism
People of Aryan descent are a more pure race. Society is divided into castes, and the higher castes are expected to have lighter skin. The term “Aryan” comes from Hinduism.
Humanity can be bred to become a master race. Through yoga and many lifetimes, people may become gods, and eventually reach Nirvana.
The symbol of Nazism was the swastika. The swastika is a symbol that has been used for hundreds of years to represent the Hindu god of creation, Brahma. It is a prevalent symbol in Hindu society.


Hinduism seems to provide much of the foundation for many religions, including new age thought, Buddhism, and Wicca. Nazism is just one more in a long line of such adaptations.

Clearly the swastika has some satanic significance. While Hindus believe the swastika has a positive meaning, it represents opposition to the one, true God, which is never positive. When the swastika arrived in Germany, all positive pretenses from India were discarded and evil—in its most palpable, horrendous form—was unveiled.

Hitler, who didn’t claim to be a Hindu, nevertheless believed in a combination of evolution and occult concepts stemming from Hinduism. Evolution conveniently provides a seemingly scientific reason to believe in the caste system of Hinduism. Hitler took this belief—that some have evolved more than others—to its ghastly, yet logical, conclusion.
