Shree Yantra is a typical geometric structure that is very important religiously as well as scientifically.
The origin of Shree Yantra is assumed to be more than 5000 years old.
It is believed that Shri Yantra is very dear to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity.
Those who worship Shri Yantra get the blessings of Lakshmi and all their wishes are fulfilled.
Shree Yantra is a geometric structure consisting of 9 triangles penetrating with one another in such a way that they look like a group of 43 triangles.
The whole shape of Shree Yantra looks like a circle that is why it is known as Shree Chakra (Holy circle) also.
Its structure seems to resemble the entire cosmos.
It is still a mystery for the world that how such a typical and unique geometric formation would have been possible in that ancient age in India.
The creation of Shree yantra in ancient age proves that the people of India had the knowledge of high-level science and mathematics even in that age.
From a religious point of view, Shree Yantra has great importance as is considered as a holy device that fulfills the wishes of its devotee.
Besides this, it has great scientific significance also.
Here we’ll consider the scientific aspects of the Shree Yantra.
Symbol of the flower of life:
The process of formation of Shree Yantra starts with the penetrating of two triangles into each other.
this process lasts until nine triangles join this composition. Thus the shape of Shree yantra develops, and ultimately it takes the shape of a circle that looks like a flower.
Similarly, the creation of the life of all living beings in the world starts with the penetration of male sperm into the female ovum. Gradually the body of living being develops and finally, it gets the full shape. This is called the flower of life.
Thus the Shree Yantra is the symbol of the flower of life.
Symbol of the union of male & female:
In Vastu science, the upward triangle is known as the symbol of Shiva (Male), while the downward triangle denotes Shakti (Female).
Shree Yantra consists of four downward-pointing and five upward-pointing triangles that unite with one another. This structure denotes the union of Shiva and Shakti i.e. male and female.
It is noteworthy here, that the “Ardhnarishwar” form of Lord Shiva also denotes the union of male and female.
Modern science verifies the fact that every human body is the union of masculine and feminine properties.
The estrogen hormone is considered the primary hormone in females that gives perfection to the feminine. But now it has been proved that this hormone is produced in some amount in male bodies also.
The excess of this hormone in the male body can lead to an increase in feminine properties in males.
The high level of estrogen in men can cause many feminine symptoms like enlarged breasts, emotional disturbances, etc. that are the common characteristics found in women.
It is proved by this that the human body consists of both male and female properties.
Thus, modern science verifies the thousand years old concept of “Lord Ardhnarishwar”.
Symbol of the union of left and right brain:
The interlacing of triangles in Shree Yantra also denotes the union of the left and right parts of the brain.
Our brain mainly consists of two hemispheres – left hemisphere and right hemisphere.
The left hemisphere performs logical activities like understanding the science, maths, etc. while the right hemisphere remains involved in artistic activities like art, painting, music, imagination, creativity, etc.
The coordination between the two parts of our brain is essential for us. For better performance of the brain we can unite both the parts of our brain by meditation.
The state of the union of both parts of the brain can be attained by focussing the sight at the center point of Shree Yantra with deep concentration.
This is the high-level state of meditation.
Symbol of Pineal Gland:
According to ancient yoga science, there are 7 chakras in the human body. Modern science recognizes these chakras as hormonal glands.
The highest chakra out of seven chakras is named as Sahasrara chakra or crown chakra, which is located in our brain in the middle of both the eyes. The modern science recognizes the Sahasrara chakra as Pineal Gland. It is a small endocrine gland, located in the epithalamus, near the center of the brain.
The third eye of Lord Shiva, in fact, represents the presence of the pineal gland or Sahasrara chakra in our brain.
The shape of the pineal gland looks like a pineapple and the 3D image of Shree yantra also looks like a pineapple. Thus, Shree Yantra also denotes the pineal gland or Sahasrara chakra in our brain.
The holy Yantra, fulfilling all desires:
Shree Yantra is known as the holy device which is the form of goddess Laxmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity. It is deemed that if a person worships Shree Yantra he gets all his desires fulfilled.
In fact, Shree Yantra denotes the Sahasrara chakra and according to ancient yoga science the Sahasrara chakra can be awakened by a long course of meditation.
When a person becomes successful in awakening the Sahasrara Chakra, he becomes able to know the secret of the ultimate truth. He becomes freed from the bindings of worldly attraction.
He attains the supreme bliss by reaching the highest level of self-satisfaction.
All his desires are automatically renounced.
After this, he has no wish left.
Reaching a situation where no desire is left means the situation where all desires have been fulfilled.
This is why Shree Yantra is known as the holy Yantra fulfilling all the wishes of his devotee.
