Sri Yantra: A Tantric Meditation

From the Hindu tantric tradition comes the Sri Yantra, or “great object.” Sri Karunamayi (also known as one of the enlightened Ammas) has said that one needs nothing more than to meditate on this image to become enlightened. Its nine interlocking triangles form a powerful symbol for meditation. The proportions of the largest triangle are the same as each face on the Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt. The dimensions of that pyramid conform to the divine proportion of the Phi ratio.

Use this Sri Yantra as an ordered space within which to find the peace you require.

The rings of lotus petals and the surrounding square with four doors represent boundaries within which consciousness resides. By your intention move into the symbol and experience time as a place of stillness in the eternal now.

Breathe deeply as you focus your attention on the simplicity of each triangle, moving from the largest to the smallest at the center and then from the smallest to the largest and back into your daily life. May peace surround you.

The meditation image of Sri Yantra looks like this.

I have no experience with meditating with sacred geometric designs. I am more attracted to rounded shapes and chakras, but also prefer to listen to a voice or to music.....

Well, some people thought that they might be getting some juicy sex tips here. I looked at the mandala briefly, and immediately experienced a sense of infinite depth to the image, and felt an alteration of consciousness. I am glad that this was shared. Thank you for posting it. Even if I did not immediately get the best orgasm of my life.
