Shri Yantra is a mystical diagram or yantra most often used by the Shri Vidya tradition. This yantra is depicted with nine interlocked triangles and a central point called the Bindu. This Superfine Shri Yantra Mandala features the Shri Yantra at the very center of the mandala. The many triangles are believed to represent the cosmos and the body. Meanwhile, the many triangles are found within concentric circles with petal details, an allude to the lotus. These triangles and circles are also found within an abundance of lines and a square which is said to be a representation of a temple with four doors. Various gods are also present in this mandala, showing their omnipresence and power to rule in all forms of life, at all times. Moreover, the Shri Yantra is also a symbol of control of the cosmos, as well as the divine power within. Notice that the shape, triangles, and circles, draw the beholder’s eye outward and then inwards towards the center. This represents the general way of how people can know the self best as well as the world as a whole.
This Superfine Shri Yantra Mandala is a good piece to add to one’s meditation or spiritual journey. Mandalas are known to be geometric but this particular piece signals unity and oneness of an individual to the world around him. When meditating, each step represented in a mandala is carefully taken—each geometric repetition as a gift to have a sound mind.
