All ancient cultures had sacred
geometric designs representative of their Gods, which had a mantra (or sacred
sound vibration) that corresponded to it. In the Vedic culture, we find much
power and energy said to be held within sacred geometric symbols.
not "lucky charms" to be worn or displayed as icons of power in and of
themselves. Much specific knowledge and ability must go into their preparation
and much dedication and worship is required to achieve the desired effects.
Yantra means a "talisman", or
"instrument" or " Amulet" or "Kavach" which, if prepared and created by a
qualified person as well as utilised under his specific instructions for
fruitful results, will help to gain the objector objects of desire or ambition.
Although it would not be a difficult task for most of us to copy the form of a
yantra, it would not have the desired effect. Furthermore, to be perfectly
honest, it would be all but useless if not created by a qualified person and
then "infused" with the specific energy via the medium of mantra. Otherwise, it
becomes just an interesting form or picture to look at, but has no real effect
on time or circumstances within life.
Yantras should always be used
on the level. If drawn on paper the colours preferable are red, orange, yellow
or a combination of these. A Yantra without bija mantras is dead. They can be
drawn to whatever size is required. In worship they should be placed level on a
pedestal or pitha. Before any Yantra is a suitable object for puja, it must be
given life (pranapratishta).
A Yantra is essential in every
field of your life, to attain success in your profession, to acquire wealth, to
win in court cases, to ward off diseases and to progress in meditation. By
having a Yantra and keeping it in a sacred place in your house, gazing it
everyday can fulfill your desires and help in attaining your goals.
There are different types of
Yantras for different purposes. They can help you to attain success in your
business, bring the person under your control, and bring wealth and prosperity
to you. The Yantras have to be purified and energized before using it. Yantras
energized during the nights of Maha Shivratri, Holi and Diwali are most
effective and powerful. Normally the related Mantras are also chanted in the
presence of the Yantras for quick results.
It is auspicious to see the
Yantra daily in the morning and one should lit incense/dhoop or lamp with ghee
before the Yantra every morning. By doing this the native is blessed with
success and wealth. We send these Yantras only after Pran pratishta (energising
or performing Pooja on them).
