The yantras are used to worship the Divine Feminine and hence the “Yantras” are of different shapes and colours to represent or for different goddesses.
The central point or ” Bindu” in the yantra, is the energy point or powerhouse. It represents the centre of the Universe and your inner self as part of the Universe.
A yantra is constructed by making geometric shapes and iconography images of deities.
A yantra starts from the central point, the central dot, called the “Bindu”, from which, all the iconographic and geometrical shapes are created in layers.
The common geometrical shapes that are seen on the yantra are circles, triangles, lotus petals and hexagons.
The meanings of these geometrical shapes are:
- The downward -pointing triangle indicates the feminine creative power, while the upward facing triangle indicates male energy.
- The hexagrams represent the union of feminine and masculine energies.
- Lotus petals indicate purity, clarity and transcendence.
- Circles signify the expression of life.
- The surrounding of the yantra is square-shaped, which represents the 4 directions – NEWS.
A yantra is a visual image with a mantra always associated with it.
The frequency of the mantra defines the yantra and the mantra vibration represents the energy of the yantra.
This mantra gives you the energy and the power for the manifestation of intention.
A mantra is hence so important in the yantra. It is attached to the yantra through spiritual rituals and blessings.
