Sri Yantra Wallpapers
A yantra is a symbolic representation of aspects of divinity, usually the Mother Goddess (also known as the infinite void, the formless light).
This is sacred geometry (divine blueprint). Imprinting the Sri Yantra in one’s mind can rewire the brain to ask the right questions, and follow trains of thought that won’t mislead you, simply because all thoughts follow a geometry to begin with. Even jealousy, anger – they all have curves, corners… etc, but most of what we do is chaotic, and this is why most of us never get anywhere spiritually without a teacher.
There is a simple reason for it; given the choice we would choose to compliment our ego than to purify it, we would choose to be comfortable in our beliefs than to threaten everything we believe. In such occasion, we go in search of truth and spirituality with an aim to build on what we believe, not to destroy it. Then, we will inevitably end up a flailing mess. This is why teachers exist – to be a roadmap.
A teacher basically imprints a sacred geometry into our mind – although it is rarely spoken about in these terms, this is practically what happens. The form of sacred geometry ultimately leads to stillness, because it is an embodiment of truth not in transcendental words, but in the form (and formlessness) behind such words.
The Sri Yantra is one image that doesn’t ‘represent’ an idea – which is what most people do with images; put them as wallpapers to represent a belief. The Sri Yantra is something else entirely.
What it is is a sigil, if you have heard of those. This is an ancient sigil, the quintessential visual image of the Universe. One could say the Universe was created with the magik of this sigil. Meditating upon its sacred geometry will give you insight into the very essence of life. It is fruitive to constantly have the Sri Yantra in your mind’s view, or as the center of focus during meditation.
What is a Yantra?
Yantras are a particular field of mandala imagery that visually represent the harmonic tones of mantras (sacred sounds). By directing our thought patterns to these archetypal planes we invite the essence of these levels to penetrate our minds and thinking. An attunement of individual consciousness with the harmony of universal consciousness develops.
Yantra literally means loom, instrument or machine. In actual practice, a yantra is a symbolic representation of aspects of divinity, usually the Mother Goddess or Durga. It is an interlocking matrix of geometric figures, circles, triangles and floral patterns that form fractal patterns of elegance and beauty. Though drawn in two dimensions, a yantra is supposed to represent a three dimensional sacred object. Although the yantra is primarily a meditation tool both for serious spiritual seekers as well as sculptors in the classical tradition, its shakti is also available to new seekers with sincere devotion and good intention. It is believed that mystical yantras reveal the inner basis of forms and shapes abounding in the universe. Yantras function as revelatory symbols of cosmic truths. Each of the circuits of the Sri Yantra, from the outer plane to the bindu (the center), corresponds with one of the stages of the spiritual journey.
The goal of contemplating the Sri Yantra is that the adept can rediscover his primordial sources. The circuits symbolically indicate the successive phases in the process of becoming.
