Enhance your meditation session with divine cosmic energy
Yantras are mystical geometric diagrams with lovely aesthetic and symmetric qualities. These ancient symbols come from Tantric tradition and are used as instruments for invoking spiritual energy in meditation, prayer, magick, manifestation, and more.
Yantra is to Yoga what a Mandala is to Buddhism. These are symbolic patterns that incorporate sacred geometry, representing the spiritual journey. Yantra literally means 'machine', which is defined as an apparatus using or applying mechanical power and having several parts, each with a definite function and together performing a particular task. Yantras are a combination of shapes that serve as a visual instrument in mediation. Much like sigils, yantras and mandalas alike both act as a symbolic representation of your desired outcome.
As an aid to meditation, yantras represent the deity or intention that is the object of meditation. These yantras emanate from their central point, which is called the bindu. Most yantras have several geometric shapes radiating concentrically from the center, much like mandalas. Geometric shapes like triangles, circles, hexagons, octagons, accompany lovely lotus petals and other sacred geometry elements to make powerful tools to tap into divine cosmic energy and infuse your meditation with mystical insights.
Yantras are useful as good luck charms because they repel off negative energy, and help us stay on the path of healing with their magical power. As a talisman, the yantra symbolizes cosmic energy that empowers the user.
Meditating or practicing yoga with yantras can give a more spiritual side to people's lives, although not necessarily linked to religion. Many athletes have found that yoga aids their state of mental and physical relaxation between training sessions, and their crucial build-up to big performances. These spiritual practices can enhance and enrich your everyday experience.
