Chakra Yantra Mandalas
Yantra, Mandalas and Tantra meaning
The seven two-dimensional Chakra Yantras I have created were channeled through me and took eight months to complete. This sacred architecture of cosmic truth correlates to the three-dimensional quantum body chakras and the mandalas, generating Tantra.
Yantra is the Sanskrit word for “instrument”. It can stand for symbols, processes, automata, machinery or anything that has structure and organization, depending on context.
Mantras, the Sanskrit syllables inscribed on yantras, are essentially “thought forms” representing divinities of cosmic powers, which exert their influence by means of sound vibrations.
Yantra usage is popular in the west as symbols or geometric figures. Traditionally such symbols are used in Eastern mysticvism to balance the mind or focus it on spiritual concepts. A yantra depicts both macrocosmic and microcosmic forces acting together – the movement towards and away from the center. Mantra plus yantra creates tantra. In some disciplines of Tantra it is said that a focused, controlled gaze upon a particular yantra can lead to liberation.
