Yantra: Types, Uses and Benefits

Yantra are mystic diagrams used by people for positive vibrations and fulfillment of a specific aim. Customarily Yantra have been placed near the deities in temples at the altar and at the entrances of homes or worn in the form of a tabeez close to throat or on arms. In the southern parts of India, people draw Yantra on the floor with multi-hued rangolis during festive times. If you have noticed, the renowned Sri Venkateswara Swamy Temple (Tirupathi) is in the shape of a Sri Yantra. Before we know types, uses and benefits of Yantra, let’s answer the basic questions: what does a Yantra mean? How does it work? Is it beneficial to have it installed at home?

WHAT IS A YANTRA?
Yantra referred to as ‘Mandalas’ are geometrical figures, diagrams or symbols that are characterized by simple forms in design and represent Mantras. The literal meaning of Yantra is: "to control, curb, bind or influence". Yantra in Sanskrit signifies the chant that awakens energy when placed anywhere in the environment around. These Vedic diagrams have stronger astronomical esthetics and are the ultimate reality. They can be inscribed in 3 dimensional forms on a plain surface or used as an amulet or charm. Adi Sankaracharya's Saundarya Lahiri has done an ascendancy work on Yantra.

There are different types of Yantra made for different purposes. Yantric geometries are three dimensional in their original states but they are characterized as two dimensional when etched or drawn. Vedic literature based on the occult sciences mention different types of Yantra such as Planetary Yantra, Numerological Yantra, Yantra for different Gods and Goddesses and others. Yantra represent a Physical force or a creative energy. Yantra in Sanskrit means the chant that awakens energy when you place it anywhere in the environment around you. This energy is said to cleanse the environment and electrify the atmosphere with positivity.

Meditation on a Yantra:

  • Hang the Yantra on a wall facing North or East. Place the centre of the Yantra at the level of your eyes.
  • Sit with spine straight and relax. Fix your eyes on the Bindu and see the whole Yantra at once. Continue gazing for 5 minutes.
  • Then chanting the mantra of the yantra, start going outwards till you reach the doorway.
  • Then again start from doorway and enter the focal point chanting the mantra at each stage.
  • Repeat going inward as many times as 27 times, 54 times or 108 times.
  • In time, after at least seven days of YANTRA meditation you will be able to tap into the same yantric energy even without a YANTRA
  • In time, you will not be able to tell whether the Yantra is within you or you are within the Yantra; this is the state of non-duality

YANTRA SCIENCE

Shri Yantra is the most powerful amongst all the Yantra. It denotes energies of all Gods and Goddesses and is a representation of your entire Life which is a Play of Goddess Lalita.

Four of the triangles pointing upwards stand for Shiva. Five of these triangles pointing downwards stand for the divine Shakti. It is a Yantra that takes you to your life purpose. All the divine architecture such as temples are based on this Yantra. YANTRA SCIENCE Vedas state that a Yantra works in tune with the cosmological order. The geometrical shape of a Yantra produces a subtle cosmic force matching the invoked energy. When you chant a Vedic mantra dedicated to a Yantra, the layers of energy in the microcosm vibrate on the same wavelength with the corresponding energy current in the macrocosm. For instance, if you chant ‘Om Namah Shivay’ in front of an energized Shiva Yantra or Mahamrityunjaya Yantra (Deity Yantra), the Shiva Tattva (atomic elements connected with Lord Shiva) get charged up and you experience a meditative state within yourself. Therefore, Yantra are purely based on the Vedic science working as per the cosmological order.
Take any Yantra, you will always find the core components: bindu (dot), trikona (triangle), chakra (circle), shatkona (six-pointed star) (bhupura (square) and Padma (divine lotus)

HOW DO YANTRA WORK?


Yantra are the best substitutes of mantra to gain positive energy and to get rid of malefic effects of unfavorably placed planets. Some people are unable to chant Mantras with correct pronunciation; Yantra is the solution for them. They create distinctive but intangible quality atmosphere that is full of positivity and positive vibrations. The vibrations generated get us in contact with spiritual energies which enhance the soul from within. It increases the intensity of prayers and makes the thoughts more strong and influential. The powers of a Yantra thrive on the reverberation of cosmic energies. When you focus at the centre of a Yantra, your mind is pitched into the creative force connected with the yantra used and the energy flows. Your wish and intention of prosperity and affluence along with a Yantra, say Kuber Yantra, is bound to yield more fruitful results as compared to an intention with the same wishes devoid of Kuber Yantra.

Thus you may use Yantra in the following ways:
You may meditate on the Yantra to achieve resonance with the divine energy ruling the yantra You may install it on your desk or wall or the altar or near the entrance. You may even place in your vehicle. It creates a force field and charges the environment. You may wear as a pendant, bracelet, ring or Tabeez on body. You may even carry Yantra with you in your wallet (make sure that wallet is not of leather). The vibrations of the Yantra will create an aura of positive energy around you.

DOES A YANTRA INFLUENCE THE MIND AND THE BODY?


Yes. It does. Placing correctly an energized Yantra in the appropriate direction influences one’s emotional, psychic and bodily well-being. The core strength of a Yantra is that it energizes the subtle energy centres called Chakras. All the Chakras are ruled by a particular deity. For example, Sahasrara Chakra is ruled by Lord Shiva. Worshiping a Mahamrityunjaya Yantra and meditating on the same gradually energizes this Chakra. An energized Sahasrara Chakra helps you know your place in the universe and see things as they are, making you undisturbed amid setbacks, failures and general life problems. Yantra are best placed in the North East part of the house as it is confluence of positive energies coming from the geometric lines from North and the rising sun in the East. However if North East part is not convenient, then it is best to place them closer to you on your desk or on wall or near entrance door. Some Yantra offer results instantly if the karmic potential is ripe. Some offer results gradually over a long period of time. Yantra for wealth and affluence require patience. For instance, Kuber Yantra works better after the first year. Yantra are also exceedingly helpful for health and averting accidents and mishaps.
