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.
