Finally my book "The Buddhist Swastika and Hitler's Cross" is available on Amazon.

May all sentient beings be happy, well and peaceful. May all beings be free from suffering and pain from birth-and-death.  May all be free from attachment of greed, anger and ignorance.  May all attain perfect peace and happiness of enlightenment through the Buddha's wisdom and compassion.
