Artist's Description

The Sri Yantr (“holy instrument”) or Sri Chakr (“holy wheel”) is a yantr formed by nine interlocking triangles that surround and radiate out from the central (bindu) point, the junction point between the physical universe and its unmanifest source. It represents the goddess in her form of Shri Lalita Or Tripur Sundari, “the beauty of the three worlds (Heaven, Earth, Hell)”. The worship of the Sri Chakr is central to the Shri Vidya system of Hindu worship. Four isosceles triangles with the apices upwards, representing Shiv or the Masculine. Five isosceles triangles with the apices downward, symbolizing female embodiment Shakti. Thus the Sri Yantr also represents the union of Masculine and Feminine Divine. Because it is composed of nine triangles, it is known as the Navayoni Chakr.1 “These nine triangles are of various sizes and intersect with one another. In the middle is the power point (bindu), visualizing the highest, the invisible, elusive centre from which the entire figure and the cosmos expand. The triangles are enclosed by two rows of (8 and 16) petals, representing the lotus of creation and reproductive vital force. The broken lines of the outer frame denote the figure to be a sanctuary with four openings to the regions of the universe”.2
