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. Three-dimensionalyantras are now becoming increasingly common. Although theyantra 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 basisof forms and shapes abounding in the universe. Yantras function as revelatory symbols of cosmic truths.
