The Shri Yantra Mantra or Mandala is constructed with an intersection of nine triangles of which five triangles are pointing upward and four downward. A combination of these nine triangles makes the Shri Yantra Mandala the most dynamic of all yantras. As the five upward-pointing and four downward-pointing triangles are intersecting and overlapping one another, they produce a total of forty-three visible triangles.
Shri Yantra Mandala has nine chakras:
1. Bindu - The point inside the central triangle and the center of the chakra. It is known as Sarva Anandamayi Chakra, which means a chakra of total bliss. It is the seed of the entire Universe, and it is beyond time and space.
2. Tricon – The central triangle, which contains the bindu. It is known as Sarva Siddhi Prada Chakra. The tricon is presumed to be the primordial prakriti with three states of consciousness: waking state, dream state and deep sleep state.
3. Ashtar – A group of eight triangles outside the tricon. It is known as Sarva Rog Har Chakra– a chakra that destroys all diseases.
4. Antardashar – A group of ten inner triangles. It is known as the Sarva Rakshakar Chakra – a chakra that provides all kinds of protection.
5. Bahardashar – A group of ten outer triangles. It is known as Sarva Artha Sadhak Chakra – a chakra that helps to achieve all kinds of realization.
6. Chaturdashar – A group of fourteen triangles. It is known as Sarva Saubhagyadayak Chakra– a chakra that gives all good fortune.
7. Ashtadal – A ring of eight lotus petals. It known as Sarva Sankshoban Chakra.
8. Shodashdal – A ring of sixteen lotus petals. It is known as Sarva Ashapuraka Chakra, the chakra of fulfilling all hopes, of materializing all kinds of expectations.
9. Bhupur – The square form with four gates. It is known as Traiuelok Mohan Chakra, the chakra that attracts the three lokas (planes): physical, astral and celestial. Eight siddhis (powers) are present in this chakra: Anima (atomicity), Laghima (lightness), Mahima (might), Ishatava (power over others), Vashitva (attraction of others), Prapti (attainment), Prakamya (ability to assume a desired form) and Bhukti (enjoyment of power).
The Shri Yantra Mandala is also known as Wheel of Fortune, the symbol of wealth & prosperity. Meditation on the Yantra bestows peace, power, bliss and protection from evil. Shri Yantra Mandala takes away all kinds of physical, mental or spiritual ailments.
