SriYantra

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.
