How to use the Sri Yantra?
Meditate on this Yantra and focus on your goals to attract prosperity and abundance into your life. The Sri Yantra has very strong hidden powers which can be noticed within short term. As you look at the Yantra, allow your eyes to focus on its center. This dot in the center is called the "Bindu", which represents the unity that underlies all the diversity of the physical world. Now allow your eyes to see the triangle that encloses the Bindu. The downward pointing triangle represents the feminine creative power, while the upward facing triangle represents male energy. Allow your vision to expand to include the circles outside of the triangles. They represent the cycles of cosmic rhythms, the notion that time has no beginning and no end. Bring your awareness to lotus petals outside the circle. Notice that they are pointing outwards. They illustrate the unfolding of our understanding. The lotus also represents the heart, the seat of the Self. When the heart opens, understanding comes. The square at the outside of the yantra represents the world of form, the material world that our senses show us, the illusion of separateness, of well defined edges and boundaries. There are four T-shaped portals, or gateways. They represent our earthly passage from the external and material to the internal and sacred.
Now take a moment to gaze into the yantra, letting the different shapes and patterns emerge naturally, allowing your eyes to be held loosely in focus. Gaze at the center of the yantra. Without moving your eyes, gradually begin to expand your field of vision. Continue expanding your vision until you are taking in information from greater than 180 degrees. Notice that all this information was there all along, you just became aware of it. Now slowly reverse the process by re-focusing back to the center of the yantra. Now gently close your eyes. You may still see the yantra in your mind’s eye. The patterns of creativity represented by these primordial shapes express the fundamental forces of nature.
