Sri Yantra

Posted on August 27, 2007 By

A yantra is an object or tool used for and with meditation practice to help improve focus and aid progression to deeper levels of meditation and spiritual understanding. Yantras represent the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically, and each one has its own specific focus or intent – perhaps that of a particular God(dess), state of consciousness, or focus on and understanding of a specific energy vibration.

The Sri Yantra is considered to be the ‘Mother of all other yantras’ because from its form, all other yantras can be derived and within its form all other yantras are found. Traditionally said to have been divinely revealed rather than invented by man, it is a map of sorts, correlating to a three-dimensional space. It balances and clears, and working on cosmic ray principles, transforms negative energies into positive influences. The Sri Yantra represents male and female, the dynamic and creative force of the universe. It is the visual representation of the Om mantra, and so much more…

According to Tantra-Kundalini,

“Man’s spiritual journey from the stage of material existence to ultimate enlightenment is mapped on the Sri Yantra. The spiritual journey is taken as a pilgrimage in which every step is an ascent to the center, a movement beyond one’s limited existence, and every level is nearer to the goal.

Each of the circuits of the Sri Yantra, from the outer plane to the bindu (the center), corresponds with one of the stages of the spiritual journey.”

This simple video takes the viewer through the various levels of the Sri Yantra, illustrating each level of represented consciousness to the ultimate goal, the Bindu. From the developer of this animation,

“The Bindu is near the end of the subtlest aspect of mind itself, after which one travels beyond or transcends the mind and its contents. It is near the end of time, space, and causation, and is the doorway to the Absolute.”
