One of the most auspicious yantras expounded in tantric texts, the Ashtalakshmi Darshasah Yantra is vouched for its auspiciousness and effectiveness by numerous devotees. The word 'ashta' in Sanskrit means eight, so this yantra is about the eight forms of Lakshmi, each of Whom have been engraved with considerable iconographic precision on each vertical edge of this yantra. They are (clockewise from top right) Shri Aishvaryalakshmi, Shri Veerlakshmi, Shri Dhyaanlakshmi, Shri Santanalakshmi (depicted with a 'santana', which means offsrpring), Shri Vijayalakshmi, Shri Adhilakshmi, Shri Gajalakshmi, and Shri Dhanlakshmi. The central bindu is surrounded by the sacred Shri Chakra motif of chaturdasha kona (fourteen triangles), followed by ashtadala (eight-petalled) and shodashadala (sixteen-petalled) padmas (lotuses), which is further followed by a trivalya (three girdles) and a trirekha (three-level bhupura or sacred precinct). While the significance of each petal of the lotuses has been inscribed on this yantra together with the holy 'Shri' syllable in the intercardinal directions, the number 3 which is of importance in this yantra stands for sattva, rajas, and tamas. The three-level bhupura of the Ashtalakshmi yantra belongs to the Kaul mat tradition. The mantra for this yantra is, "Om shri hi shri kamale kamalalaye praseed praseed/Shi hi shri om mahalakshmye namah".

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
