Yantra is a Sanskrit word which means instrument or device. In Hindus, different yantras are used as symbols of different gods and goddess. A yantra is a geometric figure recognized as a symbol of god. There are many types of  yantras, and a particular yantra is known as symbol of a particular god.

Shriyantra:

Shriyantra or shrichakra is a geometric figure. This is considered as the mother of all yantras.

The origin of shrichakra is not known so far, however it is believed to be about 12,000 years old. No doubt, it is a unique gift to the world from ancient Indian Vedic age culture. It is still a mystry for modern world, how such a complex geometric figure could have been created in that age.

Shrichakra is unique in itself because of its various salient features.

Symbol of Cosmos:

Shrichakra is composed of 9 triangles which are interlaced in one another in such a way that they seem to form 43 smaller triangles like wave. The whole of the figure looks like a circle (chakra) which denotes the whole of cosmos.

Symbol of union of Shiva & Shakti (Lord Ardhnarishwar):Shriyantra: A device fulfilling all desires

According to Vastu Shastra they are 8 angles named –

  • Purav (East)
  • Paschim (West)
  • Uttar (North)
  • Dakshin (South)
  • Ishanya (North-East)
  • Vayu (North-West)
  • Agneya (South-East)
  • Naieuttya (South-West)

The triangle made by joining the points north, south-east and south-west denotes Shiva, while a triangle made by joining the points south, north-east and north-west represents Shakti.

In shrichakra the upward triangles represent Shiva while the downward triangles represent Shakti. The interlocking of upward and downward triangles is the symbol of union of Shiva (Masculine) and Shakti (Feminine). It is the symbol of Ardhnarishwar form of lord Shiva having the union of masculine and feminine.

Shriyantra also represents the union of left brain (masculine form) and right brain (feminine form). The unity of left and right brain is achievable by concentrating the mind on shrichakra.

Symbol of Flower of life:

The process of formation of shrichakra starts by interlocking of masculine and feminine triangles. When it gets full size on having been completed, it takes the form of a flower. It denotes the process of formation of life of lively beings, starting at embryonic stage by the union of sperm and ovum.

The Sahasrara chakra is considered as principal and most important out of seven chakras. It is believed to be located in our brain between both the eyes. Our modern science recognizes the sahasrara chakra as pineal gland. The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland, which is located in the epithalamus, near the centre of the brain. It produces melatonin, a serotonin derived hormone, which affects the modulation of sleep patterns in both seasonal and circadian rhythms.

It is deemed that if one becomes successful in stimulating his pineal gland (sahasrara chakra), he achieves the state of self-realization, and he comes to know “the ultimate truth”. The pineal gland can be activated by focussing the attention on the “3rd Eye” area and staring at the central dot of shrichakra. In fact, the 3rd eye on the middle of forehead of lord Shiva is the symbol of pineal gland.

The pineal gland, as its name, is like a pine cone in shape.

The 3D shape of shrichakra also looks like a pine cone. Shrichakra is the symbol of pineal gland in itself.

The Holy Yantra:

In word “shriyantra” the prefix “Shri” denotes for goddess Laxmi who is cosidered the goddess of wealth and prosperity. The shriyantra is cosidered the symbol of goddess Laxmi.

Shriyantra: A device which fulfils all desires of devotee

Everyone in this world has endless desires. It is deemed that if a devotee worships shriyantra, goddess Laxmi certainly fulfills all of his desires. That is why, shriyantra is considered a device fulfilling all the wishes of devotee.

A devotee of shriyantra can activate his pineal gland or sahsarara chakra by meditation. If the pineal gland of one is activated he gets the sense of self-realization, and comes to know the secrets of the supreme truth. He has no interest in worldly attractions, and becomes free from every type of attachment. He has no desire.

Shriyantra is really a device which fulfills all the desires of its devotee. In fact, the devotee of shriyantra achieves the state where he enjoys the blessedness and then no desire remains with him to be fulfilled.
