The Sri Yantra also called Sri Chakra is a beautiful and complex sacred geometry used for worship, devotion and meditation. It has been in use for thousands of years and it’s origin seems unknown.
The central figure is composed of nine interlocking triangles. Every triangle is connected to the others by common points and this is the reason why it is so difficult to draw correctly. Changing the size or position of one triangle often require changing the position of many other triangles.
After making a few attempts at drawing this figure it became obvious that it’s not as easy as it looks. Given the fact that this is one of the oldest and most recognizable sacred geometry one would assume that a method for drawing this famous figure precisely would be easy to find. Not so.

Yantras are spiritual conductors of cosmic energy that should be worshipped on a regular basis. They help to bring about the desired effects in a quicker manner. However, since the cosmos works on the principle of cause and effect, only if karma permits can one enjoy the full destined fruits. Otherwise, one has to work out the due karma stored from the past. However, yantras radiate positive energies that shape one`s thought patterns thereby improving the life for the better and elevating it to another level.

Yantra is the Sanskrit word for a mystical diagram, especially diagrams or amulets supposed to possess occult powers in astrological or magical benefits in the Tantric traditions of the Indian religions. Traditionally such symbols are used in Eastern mysticism to balance the mind or focus it on spiritual concepts. The act of wearing, depicting, enacting and/or concentrating on a yantra is held to have spiritual or astrological or magical benefits in the Tantric traditions of the Indian religions.
Shapes and patterns commonly employed in yantra include squares, triangles, circles and floral patterns but may also include more complex and detailed symbols, for instance:
The lotus flower typically represents chakras, with each petal representing a psychic propensity (or vritti) associated with that chakra;
A dot, or bindu, represents the starting point of creation or the infinite, unexpressed cosmos;
The shatkona (şaţkoņa) (Sanskrit name for a Hexagram) is composed of a balance between:
An upwards triangle which according to Tantra denotes energy, or more specifically action and service (seva). It may also denote spiritual aspiration, the element of fire, or Shiva. It is also said to represent the static substratum of the cosmos;
A downwards triangle which according to Tantra denotes spiritual knowledge. It may also denote the creative power of the cosmos, fecundity, the element of water, or Shakti;
