Yantra Meditations

Yantras are ancient geometric symbols that contain specific energy of a planet, aspect or a deity. 

In Sanskrit, the word “yantra” means “a tool”, as it is a powerful instrument for healing and spiritual liberation. 

 

Yantras can connect us to the universe powers and also the places in ourselves that we have forgotten about, like our strength, our greatness and our genius. 

 

Each yantra has unique set of qualities and potentials. Here are a few methods you can use:



Gazing Meditation

  1. Prepare a Yantra image. You can print out one of the Yantra below. Position in a way that is easy for you to see, preferably on a white surface away from distractions.
  2. Sit comfortably with your spine straight, remaining alert. You may want to start from a gesture of namaste or chanting the sound of ‘Aum’.
  3. Set the timer for 3-5 minutes and begin gazing softly at the Yantra. Allow the eyes to relax so the image to enter your visual awareness.
  4. Stay focused on the Yantra and when thoughts come to you, shift the focus gently back to the image without judgement or effort.
  5. When the time is over, shift the gaze to a blank surface. Allow the afterimage to form and keep gazing at it as long as you can see it.
  6. When the afterimage fades, close your eyes and allow any remaining afterimage to form in your mind. Keep it in your attention until it completely fades.
  7. Repeat it as many times as you like. 

Tip: practice this method for 21 days in a raw to activate it’s hidden capacity.

 

Colouring Yantra Meditations

Colouring the yantras is one of the most simple and beautiful methods for healing and spiritual growth. It is also very useful when you are trying to achieve a particular goal or break an unhelpful habit.

 

  1. Prepare a Yantra image. You can print out one of the Yantra below. Choose material for colouring (felt-tips, paints, pencils or anything else you are comfortable to use.
  2. Sit comfortably with your spine straight, remaining alert. You may want to start from a gesture of namaste or chanting the sound of ‘Aum’. 
  3. If you have them ready, read about the qualities of the Yantra.
  4. Set the timer for 3-5 minutes and begin colouring the Yantra segment by segment. It does not matter what colours you use, allow your intuition to guide you. 
  5. Stay focused on the segment you are colouring and when thoughts come to you, shift the focus gently back to the image without judgement or effort.
  6. When the time is over, look at the Yantra as a whole, admire its shape and your work, keep gazing softly for a few minutes absorbing it all.
  7. Reset the alarm and return to colouring, focussing on one segment at a time. Repeat it as many times as you like. 

Tip: practice this method for 21 days in a raw to activate it’s hidden capacity.

Shri Yantra

The Shri Yantra, called the “queen of yantras,” and the symbol of the power that creates all forms

in the universe from two opposing forces: Shiva, the male energy (triangles pointing upwards), and

Shakti, the feminine energy (triangles pointing downward).

The secret of all creation is hidden in Shri Yantra. It is renowned for drawing wealth, healing sexual

energy, ending the loop of continually falling back into despair and loss and brings the purpose to life. It is believed it restores the body and soul to its perfect structure.
