This yantra is thought to be a representative of Mount Meru, a mountain that is considered to be right in the center of the universe, and the Sri Yantra is considered to be where spiritual pilgrimage takes place.
It represents our bodies at a microcosmic level (through the chakras), and the cosmos on a macrocosmic level.
The Sri Yantra is a symbol that is comprised of nine interlocking triangles with two circles of lotus petals enclosing them.
These triangles are drawn by superimposing five downward triangles (the female, or Shakti), and four upward triangles (the male, or Shiva). These nine triangles create three smaller triangles, each of which being the house of a particular deity.
The Sri Yantra is considered a timeline of man’s spiritual journey, from basic existence to total enlightenment, and this journey is taken in steps until one reaches the center, taking man beyond his limitations. Each step of this journey relates to a circuit of the Sri Yantra, with the ultimate goal being the bindu.
The Sri Yantra symbol is based on Pi (Phi, the golden ratio, or Fibonacci series) It is interesting to note that not only does the Sri Yantra represent the universe as a whole, it also represents the human body.
Each part of the Sri Yantra/Sri Chakra/Shree Yantra relates to a chakra in the body, and it also the universe. It helps us to understand how we are connected to the universe, and helps us to ultimately unite with the universe through that understanding.
This symbol is composed of nine interlocking triangles that radiate outwards from the center or bind point. This central point is considered the meeting place or junction between the physical world and the spiritual world or the unmanifest source. Of the nine triangles, four points to the sky and is believed to be symbols for Shiva (the masculine), while the five pointing downwards represent Shakti (or the feminine). Because of this, the Sri Yantra is believed to be a strong symbol for the union of the masculine and the feminine divine.
The nine main triangles also form 43 smaller triangles, which is said to represent the entire universe or cosmos. Eight lotus petals surround the triangles, while a larger ring of 16 lotus petals surround both. This is finally enclosed in a temple-like square, which contains four doors.
