Sri Yantra Meditation


so I get the feeling that is THE Symbol.

I’ve even stuck it everywhere, 1 in my mediation room, ok mediation cupboard it’s so small, 1 in my note book, in my phone, by my computer and on my bedroom wardrobe. The fastest way to cure any insomnia or jet lag I find – mediation, it always sends me straight to sleep. So, what better way than to integrate the 2, mediate in bed, killing 2 birds with one stone.

Hopefully I won’t forget about it, pull on a drunken night and have the guy wake up to a giant Sri Yantra thinking I’m a total weirdo. Don’t be silly, I don’t drink – my body’s a temple. Ommmmm.

The Sri Yantra is an ancient sacred symbol used for meditation to help achieve higher states of consciousness. Mediating on it is thought to enable the activation of the pineal gland (Third Eye) and aid manifestation.  The visual patterns are said to also be able to connect the right-hand lobe of brain with the left-hand , thus helping balance and improving mental performance. The Vedas explain the Shree Yantra as a scientific, cosmic and planetary energy zone.

How can this symbol contain all this and do so much.. well one of the first things I noticed about the Sri Yantra  was how similar the Free Mason symbol was to it.

Free mason 180See the similarity? No, need some help …
The point in the middle of the Sri Yantra represents the Divine Oneness. when the Free Mason crest is placed on top of the Sri Yantra, such that its  God symbol in centre overlaps with the Bindu point, which has the same meaning, the Divinity point, the surrounding triangles line up. Crazily enough a set square and a compass, as shown in the Free Mason crest,  is all you need to set out  a pretty perfect Sri Yantra and all other sacred geometry symbols. The Free Masons are also well known for esoteric teachings and the use of symbolism to gain power.

In Oregon a giant Sri Yantra appeared carved into a dry-lake bed in the middle of the Desert oriented precisely in the North-South direction. It had been discovered by Bill Miller on 10 August, 1990, a pilot in the Idaho Air National Guard, while flying over the area, which hadn’t been noticed before by any of the other pilots of the Idaho National Guard who regularly train over this corridor.

Bill Witherspoon later claimed that he and three other men set it out with pegs and strings, and pulled a ‘garden cultivator’ like a plow to create it. There are conflicting stories and details, with hoax websites citing the fact that he wrote a paper ‘Art as technology” which was published in the Leonardo as proof he had carried out the works. The paper basically outlines his fascination with the Sri Yantra and other yantras and his study of how the area prospered with rain and nature after he had produced these art forms.  However these recordings could have been done once the Sri Yantra had appeared and it seems strange that in the paper he even states that he had to use a machine to carve the other art forms. Also there are no photos of these other creations of his on the internet (I’m not about to pay to see his full paper to see if there are figures, if you have, please enlighten us in the comments).

It can be seen that the glyph looks like it has machine like precision in its shape and clarity of lines. The formation was also a quarter of a mile in wide, consisting of  13.3 miles of 10″ wide lines etched 3 inches deep. Not an easily task to plough easily in the baking heat.

It is difficult to ascertain which is the truth, but what is for sure is that the Sri Yantra may look simple, but is actually very complex to draw. The 5 downward triangles interconnect with the 4 upward pointing triangles, at triple intersections, a point where all 3 lines cross.  I don’t think this can be fully appreciated until you try to draw it yourself. I kept getting to the 5th or next triangle and finding it would not intercept at certain points. Each time I redrew it, and moved a triangle, all the other triangles had to shift. This constant shifting of triangles to ensure they all intercept correctly requires so many iterations, that only now can computers be used to run these iterations to produce a Sri Yantra where all the intercepts match very precisely. The optimal Sri Yantra is also said to be drawn such that the Bindu point also lies exactly in the center of the central triangle and also in the largest circle that can fit in this triangle. For this to be possible the middle triangle must be an equilateral triangle (one with all 60 degree angles). It is so complex that several papers have been written on how to compute a precise Sri Yantra. Even when I followed instructions on how to set out a optimal Sri Yantra (based on years of study ), when it was drawn in Micro-station (a engineering computer drawing program), I found if I drew the Sri Yantra with the largest triangle 1 meter wide, there would be a 1.7mm difference at where the 3 lines crossed at 2 of the interception points. Of course this is un-noticeable in pictures as they are usually smaller than a 1 meter and the line thickness makes this impossible to see. However, this error would be very noticeable on a quarter of a mile Sri Yantra, around a 50cm discrepancy (if drawn with a precise program) at 2 interception points. Yet the lines were 10 inches wide (25.4cm), not at all sufficient to  cover this discrepancy or a even greater one considering they claim they only used pegs and strings to set it out. It requires such precision that it is impossible that four men could have produced this complex Yantra. A slight difference in a degree of a line would produce a much bigger discrepancy over the quarter of a mile glph, such that the triangles probably would not even interconnect correctly.

It is no wonder why the Sir Yantra is considered as a manifestation of the divine, our intelligence has not yet found a way to set out a perfect Optimal Sri Yantra even after years of study and it is only now with modern computers that can run thousands or more iterations that a perfect Sri Yantra can be produced. Advance mediation practices with this symbol are taught following a linage of Masters where student learn how to concentrate on different parts of the Sri Yantra (each and every aspect of the Sri Yantra, each triangle and resulting triangles from the overlap, each petal etc all represents different aspects of existence and the deities that look after them).

Below is only a simple way to mediation on the Sri yantra. First place it infront of you such that you are facing east when looking at it. It reminds me of one of those 3D pictures, because as I stared at it my eyes go a bit funny and starts looking 3D, as I seem to drift in and out of the pattern. I recommend using a Sri Yantra that isn’t psychedelic or has been shaded in a 3D manner, so that you can differentiate what you are seeing arising from the symbol rather than it being caused by the shading.  You can download a larger version of this one here, which has been colored according to the deities.

  1. Start by gazing into the yantra, taking in all the different shapes and patterns while holding your eyes loosely in focus.
  2. Then gaze at the center of the yantra, at the Bindu point (where Shakti and Shiva, female and male aspects are united). Recognize that this represent the Oneness of all, the divinity point.
  3. Without moving your eyes, gradually expand your vision to include the surrounding triangles. The five superimposed downward pointing triangles represent Shakti ; the feminine aspect and four upright triangles, representing Shiva ; the male aspect. Acknowledge the feminine creative power and male energy these represent. These nine interlocking triangles form forty three small triangles that surround the Bindu point in 4 layers, each triangle represent a deity associated with a particular aspect of existence.
  1. Allow your vision to expand to include the circles outside of the triangles. They represent the cycles of cosmic rhythms. The image of the circle embodies the notion that time has no beginning and no end. The farthest region of space and the innermost nucleus of an atom both pulsate with the same rhythmic energy of creation. That rhythm is within you and without you.
  1. Bring your awareness to lotus petals outside the circles. The lotus also represents the heart, the seat of the Self, you are the divinity point seated in the center. The leaves open outwards, illustrating our hearts opening, and as this happens so does the unfolding of our understanding. When the heart opens, understanding comes.
  1. The square at the outside of the yantra represents the material world and is called the “earth citadel”.
  1. You have just let your mind travel from the divine point, to the aspects that start to create, and represent the material world, to the material world formed by the illusion of separateness that our earthly senses show us. These patterns of creativity represented by these primordial shapes express the fundamental forces of nature.
  1. Further out, on the edges of the square are four T-shaped portals, or gateways. Notice that they point toward the interior of the yantra, the inner spaces of life. Let them guide you back from the external and material back to the internal and sacred. The expanding outwards, is the creation, reconstruction of the 3rd dimensional world from the divine .
  2. Slowly re-focus back to the center of the yantra, mediation on the dissolution 3rd dimensional world, back to the divine Bindu point. Shift your awareness inward and close your eyes. Now watch the yantra imprinted in your mind’s eye and allow it to gradually guide you within.
  1. Do nothing, and just participate in the pure consciousness without the mind defining it.
  2. Whenever you are ready, take a few deep breaths, open your eyes and become aware of your surroundings once again.

    Hi, thank you for sharing this.I was very curious about it after I watched Amish Shah’s video on how Sri yantra meditation or simply having Sri yantra can help you manifest anything in life and I got to watch Yon World’s video on youtube as well where he talks about how Sri yantra helped him manifest material wealth. I wanted the same but I wanted to manifest my perfect relationship and my dream job. So, I thought of giving it a try.

    I downloaded the Sri Yantra from Amish’s website and in no way was I convinced that it would work. I’m sorry but in my desperate search for quick fix in life, I have come across so many people who have made me look like a fool by trusting their bogus claims. But in this case, I did not have to pay any money and it was just about getting it printed. I did a few copies. One night, I was lying on my bed looking at Sri yantra’s picture on my mobile focusing on the Bindu. It was late in the night and somehow my thoughts were silent and there was nothing going on in my mind. I don’t know when I closed my eye but what I experienced after that was very scary to me at that time because spirituality, mediation is quite new to me. I lost track of my sensations and I saw just blank black space and I heard a continuous sharp frequency. I have been listening to om frequency and solfeiggo frequencies, binaural and other frequencies more recently and it was something like that. At that time I realized that I was wanting to open my eyes and move my body but I couldn’t move my hands or body. I tried to open my mouth to speak or scream because I was that scared and I had no clue something like this was possible. I forced myself to open my eyes but in vain. I was saying to myself “Somebody please help me, I am stuck, don’t know what’s happening, am i dead or something (lol, I know) and suddenly I just moved my fingers and my eyes were wide open. After I opened my eyes, I went to my sister’s room and told her the experience. I don’t know what happened. I had never experienced anything like that but now that I think of it, it wasn’t a very bad experience. It’s just that I was scared.

    I mediate on sri yantra regularly and have its picture all over my room but I have not experienced that again. So many people say and I have noticed all over the internet how people are benefiting by it but in my case nothing is really happening though I place my full faith in it. Do you have any idea what happened to me that day? And what do I need to do to benefit in my life with Sri yantra? Can we put multiple Sri yantra pictures at home and in one room. I keep a picture of Sri yantra under my pillow when I sleep. Is that okay? I am in a very desperate situation. Any help/suggestion would be greatly appreciated and humbly accepted. Much blessings and prayers to you.

      Hi Kia .. We live in a multi-dimensional world, the sharp frequency you heard, is your ears tuning into higher dimensions and you had an out of body experience, how COOL! like when people astral project, such that your consciousness is not fully connected to your body. Don’t worry, just focus back into your body and you will return. I used to get this alot when I woke up when I was little and it used to scare me too, but then I figured if I just fall back asleep I’ll wake up again connected..
      When you meditate with an expectation of something happening, you brain will be thinking about it, i.e. you will be using your human brain, what we have been programmed into the Matrix to do, but if you let go of all your thoughts like you did originally, you will return to you, the original you, and other experiences will open up…but do not hold onto them, for those too will pass 🙂 there will be periods when you are conscious of things happening, and those when there doesn’t seem to be anything happening, it’s all good. You’re multi-dimensional aswell, all because your conscious side might not have noticed anything, your sub-conscious maybe doing over time on another level connecting you and growing.
      Your faith should be in YOU, and YOU alone, You are the Creator, You are Source, the Sri Yantra is just a tool, one of your many toys to help awaken the You within. Have you managed to read ‘The Manifestor in You’ and the following articles? What you focus on ‘will be’..thus if you are focusing on your desperate situation, acting desperately and therefore vibrating this, this will be what you are creating and bringing into your reality. Take your focus and place it on better things; give thanks every evening as described, throughout your day train yourself to take mental notes of all the good things that happen no matter how small, for they are all blessings, and stop any thoughts dwelling on bad things as soon as you notice you are doing it, and soon you will be vibrating different and will bring higher vibrational things into your life. I cannot stress how important it is to tend to your vibrations, your emotions, especially the underlying sub-consious ones, as this will be your underlying vibration. This is why it’s important to follow ‘The Manifestor in You’ and the mantra work at the beginning of ‘Manifesting with the Sri Yantra‘. It is from your vibration that you create. Take Care and Bless X
