In religious sectors, the Sri Yantra is key to the system of Hindu worship known as the Shri Vidya. Those who practice this spiritual philosophy see the symbol as a visual representation of “the beauty of the three worlds.” You can identify the Sri Yantra through its magnificent use of sacred geometry. The symbol is drawn from a group of nine triangles that interlock around a central point, which is referred to as Bindu. In Hindu beliefs, the Yantra’s four upward pointing triangles are the representation of Shiva – the masculine. The five remaining downward facing triangles are meant to be the visual embodiment of Shakti – the feminine.
The Sacred Feminine & The Sacred Masculine
The Sri Yantra combines the nature of the sacred feminine and masculine and is representative of their union. The power that this union holds is recognized by the Shri Vidya as well as those who understand the significance, influence, and potential that sacred plays in our everyday lives. It’s no coincidence that we can stand in awe of the beauty and perfection that nature wields the ability to create. Some would argue that a great deal of these qualities is a direct result of nature’s application of sacred geometry in its natural patterns of creation.
The Sri Yantra is an intricate symbol that is representative of various sacred elements in the metaphysical world. In the Shri Vidya school of Hindu tantra, the powerful symbol is hailed and used as a special diagram that can aid in spiritual efforts. It’s said that humanity’s journey through spirituality, from primordial existence toward attained enlightenment is embedded into the symbolism of the Sri Yantra. The journey is described as taken in steps that lead toward the central point.
The Sri Yantra as a Tool
