“Yantra/Mandala are geometric centering devices representing aspects of the Universe and provide a focal point into the absolute. Yantra means, “an apparatus” in Sanskrit, and is a diagram of light, or visual mantra, composed of geometric shapes. A living symbol, yantra is the dwelling place for a deity, or planet. This creative, dynamic form of meditation has been used for centuries as an awakening tool of latent potentials.”
