The Sri Yantra graphs the harmonizing of all energy that eventually occurs throughout creation. Sri Yantra means “the most honored yantra.” It is thousands of years old, and is prominent in Far Eastern art, both Hindu and Buddhist. It is a popular image among Western yoga practitioners.
The word ‘yantra’ means ‘instrument’ and this is exactly what this 12,000-year-old symbol is: an instrument or powerful tool for intense meditation, prayer or concentration to allow one to achieve a higher level of consciousness.
Yantra are mystical diagrams that see use in Tantric traditions. The Sri Yantra is a particular yantra that consists of nine triangles that surrounds a central point, which sees much use in Shri Vidya. For those who are curious, Shri Vidya is a collection of Tantric traditions that is focused on Devi in her form as the Beautiful Goddess of the Three Cities, who is considered to be the supreme existence.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Sri Yantra represents a number of things. For example, it represents Devi, which explains why it has such a important position in Shri Vidya practices. Furthermore, it is supposed to be symbolic of the human being as well as the cosmos, which is a concept that pops up in a number of cultures in a number of times. In fact, some people might have heard of something similar summed up as, "As above, so below," which can be interpreted to mean that the microcosm exists in close connection with the macrocosm.
Regardless, yantra are used for a wide range of purposes by people who are hoping for success of one kind or another, so it should come as no surprise to learn that the Sri Yantra is no exception to this rule. One excellent example is the use of the Sri Yantra as an aide in meditation, which is something that it shares with its counterparts from other Tantric traditions.
Another excellent example is the use of the Sri Yantra as an adornment for interior spaces, both because of its pleasing appearance and because of its supposed spiritual power.
Having a Sri Yantra in a home can provide a number of spiritual, emotional and physical benefits.
– Reduced negativity– Affluence– Harmony– Peace– Greater success– Good luck– Destruction of harmful forces
On the whole, the use of the Sri Yantra is intended to promote a person's physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, which in turn, should put them in the best position to succeed at a wide range of endeavours. Something that is one of the fundamental bases of Shri Vidya.
