- The centre, there is a big dot (known as the bindu), which is the primordial matter or the starting point of creation resulting from the union of the male and female energies.
- The triangles are angled in such a way that they produce 43 subsidiary triangles, which form the abodes of different demigods (Universal rulers).
- The sri yantra has outer rings consisting of an eight-petalled lotus, enclosed by a sixteen petalled lotus,girdled in turn by three circles, which represent creation, maintenance and dissolution.
- The lotus flower typically represent chakras, with each petal representing a psychic propensity. They are all enclosed in a square with four doors or gates, one on each side. which represents the boundaries within which the deities reside, protecting you from the chaos and disorder of the outside world.
The Evolution of Man
Man’s spiritual journey from the stage of material existence to ultimate enlightenment is mapped on the Sri Yantra. This spiritual journey or pilgrimage in which every step is an ascent to the center, is a movement beyond one’s limited existence, and every level is nearer to the goal. Such a journey is mapped in stages, and each of these stages corresponds with one of the circuits of which the Sri Yantra is composed from the outer plane to the bindu in the center. The ‘bindu’, the dot in the centre, represents the original unity of the male and female principles prior to creation point from which the manifestation of the cosmos emerges
