An exploration of the mystical Sri Yantra. We learn to draw the yantra using sacred geometry and understand the symbology of this great Divine Mother principle.
Yantra literally means “instrument”. A Yantra is a geometric design acting as a highly efficient tool for contemplation, concentration and meditation. They serve as centering devices or as symbolic compositions of the energy pattern of a deity as seen by Tantric seers in their vision.
The Sri Yantra, called the “queen of yantras”, consists of nine interlocking triangles – four upward ones which represent Shiva, and five downward ones representing Shakti to form forty three small triangles, organized in 5 concentric levels. All these surround the central point, the bindu. Together they represent the totality of the cosmos and the Sri Yantra is considered the source of consciousness, power and creativity
Drawing Yantras activates both hemispheres of the brain and can be a tool for concentration, focus and connecting with the Divine.
