What Is Yantra

A Yantra is a visual tool, a group of geometrical patterns symbolising an energy. It is a fusion of two words – Yam, meaning to support or hold, and tra, which comes from word trana meaning liberation. Hence, Yantra is a tool which holds the essence of an energy, which helps in liberation or self-realisation. Itis used for worship, and the energy which the Yantra holds represents the God, a specific deity. It is being a symbol, is qualitative; it is a creative representation of the abstract. Hence, it is a representation of the Divine. It is tool which helps in drifting our mind from the material world towards the inner consciousness or self-awareness, the state of turiya.

''The seers of ancient India gave utmost importance to self-realization. They asserted that the ultimate goal of human life is to go beyond the boundaries materialistic world and connect with the divine.''

We feel content with the materialistic world till our lives don’t have many problems, and we don’t feel the need to transcend the materialistic world. However, when we are exposed to great difficulties, we begin to feel restless and lose peace and calm. To overcome this nature of humans and rise above selfishness and ego, the sages of ancient India devised tools for self-realization.
