This special mandala came to me as a vision and is the result of last nights work. It's the first time I created a Sri Yantra. I made it as a gift for my dearest friend and companion Alih whom I had the pleasure to meet in Spring of this year. I feel deeply connected to him ever since and feel the wish to support him in any way I can.
Dear Alih,may the strong power of the Sri Yantra help you heal from all the wounds of the past! You are guided and blessed and you will find your peace despite all the hardship on your way.What is a Sri Yantra?
With all my heart I wish you strength, confidence and persistence on your current journey.
Thank you for being with me and supporting me.I will be with you all time.
I LOVE YOU.
The Sri Yantra is a configuration of nine interlocking triangles, surrounded by two circles of lotus petals with the whole encased within a gated frame, called the "earth citadel". The nine interlocking triangles centered around the bindu (the central point of the yantra) are drawn by the superimposition of five downward pointing triangles, representing Shakti ; the female principle and four upright triangles, representing Shiva ; the male principle. The nine interlocking triangles form forty three small triangles each housing a presiding deity associated with particular aspects of existence.
Sri yantra, also known as Sri Chakra, is called the mother of all yantras because all other yantras derive from it. In its three dimensional forms Sri Yantra is said to represent Mount Meru, the cosmic mountain at the center of the universe. Sri Yantra is first referred to in an Indonesian inscription dating to the seventh century C.E. It may have existed in India, its country of origin, long before the time of its introduction to Indonesia.
