The Mystries of Yantra

Yantra technically means an instrument, apparatus, a talisman or a mystical diagram. Yantra is a symbol of any god or goddess means they are powerful representations of concentrated sacred energy. They fuse together a variety of visual elements in their designs, including Sanskrit mantras, mandalas and images of deities. It is consisting of lines, dots, angles, triangles, squares and circles, it also includes sings and writings. It is made on stone, metal or other things. The Mantra and Tantra are co-partners of Yantra. Yantras are perfect to enhance any meditation practice.

Sri Yantra - or Yantra of Creation - is the most revered of all the Hindu yantras. There is a mysterious beauty that arises in the way that nine diverse triangles interlink to form a state of perfect balance and harmony, and the complementation of the yin and yang~ creating 43 smaller triangles that define the Sri Yantra.

The Sri Yantra is believed to be the image of the OM mantra, which in the Hindu tradition is understood to be the primordial sound of creation. In his book Rhythms of Vision, Lawrence Blair writes that when the OM is correctly intoned into a tonoscope (a device that transforms sound into a visual representation on a screen), it first produces a circle. As the tone is completed, the circle is filled sequentially with concentric squares, triangles and finally, as the last traces of the "mmm" have died away, the Sri Yantra.

Sri Yantra Eternal Fire: Primes the kundalini. For the serious soul intent on burning through karma and the obstructions to one's spiritual growth. The spiritual warrior.

Whirling Squares: In sacred geometry the circle symbolizes the spiritual plane and the square symbolizes the material, physical plane. The whirling squares yantra design portrays the union of spirit and matter. It simultaneously expresses the spiritualization of matter and the cloaking of spirit.

Yantras are a particular field of mandal imagery that visually represent the harmonic tones of mantras (sacred sounds). By directing our thought patterns to these archetypal planes we invite the essence of these levels to penetrate our minds and thinking. An attunement of individual consciousness with the harmony of universal consciousness develops.

Inter-dimensional Gateways to the Infinite

following Jonathan Quintin

Pythagoras described geometry as visual music. Music is created by applying laws of frequency and sound in certain ways. States of harmonic resonance are produced when frequencies are combined in ways that are in unison with universal law.

These same laws can be applied to produce visual harmony. Instead of frequency and sound it is angle and shape that are combined in ways that are in unison with universal law. Geometric shapes can be orchestrated in ways to produce visual symphonies that show the harmonic unification of diversity.

Mandalas translate complex mathematical expressions into simple shapes and forms. They show how the basic patterns governing the evolution of life workout the most beautiful results.

The word mandala arises from the Sanskrit and means sacred circle. The circle symbolizes the womb of creation; and mandalas are geometric designs that are made through uniform divisions of the circle. The shapes that are formed from these divisions are symbols that embody the mathematical principles found throughout creation. They reveal the inner workings of nature and the inherent order of the universe.

Mandalas act as a bridge between the higher and lower realms. They are interdimensional gateways linking human consciousness to the realms of archetypes and the infinite. The relationship of form, movement, space and time is evoked by the mandala.

Mandalas offer a way to engage with the inherent harmony and balance of nature. They bring the principles of nature into our field of awareness. For thousands of years, mandala imagery has served as a means to an expanded way of thinking. The images transcend language and the rational mind. They bring about a certain wisdom of universal knowledge and a deeper understanding of human consciousness.

The Golden Ratio

The golden ratio, or it's mathematical term the phi ratio is a mathematical principle that pervades the universe. This principle can be found from molecules (including the DNA molecule) to spiral galaxies. It is a universal relationship that exists between two elements of an equation in a natural situation.

In sacred geometry the golden ratio can be expressed in numbers, lengths, shapes and forms, which include golden proportioned triangles, rectangles and spirals. The golden ratio is the golden thread that links all levels of creation. If the emotion of love is the pervading principle of the universe, the golden ratio is the mathematical equation of it.

The golden ratio is also present in the Sri Yantra. Pentagram star with radiating spiral. Awakening and metamorphosis. New beginnings. A link to the universal heart. A key to realms of higher awareness. Pentagram star rainbow with yin and yang spirals forming universal heart. A nurturing and enriching connection with universal abundance and empathy.
