An Intro to Yantra

                     Yantras are geometrical figures intended to represent the basic energies. Just as every elementary geometrical figure, a straight line, a square, a cross or a triangle etc., has a symbolic value corresponding to the basic notions, similarly, the Yantras symbolise one or the other power or energy. In other words Yantras are the graphic representations of Mantras. Yantras can be drawn, engraved or painted on a variety of substances. The classical eight tantrik surfaces are gold, silver, copper, crystal, birch (bhoj vriksha), bone, hide (which can include any type of paper), and Vishnu stone (shalagrama).

                     Yantras should always be used on the level. If drawn on paper the colours preferable are red, orange, yellow or a combination of these. They can be drawn to whatever size is required. The two main types of yantras are Bhu and Meru. The former is flat, two dimensional, the latter is of pyramidal form. In worship they should be placed level on a pedestal or pitha. Before any yantra is made a suitable object for puja, it must be given life (pranapratishta). 

                    The Yantras are designed to remove the afflictions to obtain a particular result eg. to have a child, to have a positive balance in the bank, or to have the awareness to control one's temper in order to enhance one's performance at work etc. The Yantras are inscribed with the mystical inscriptions of the afflicted beneficial planets at a particularly auspicious time to suit the individual wearer. The diagrams such as circles, triangles, squares and even a 'dot' are used as Yantras. All these represent cosmic energies. A dot known as bindu in Sanskrit symbolizes all pervading space-the origin of all that exists. 

                   The yantras shall be seen daily in the morning and one shall lit incense or lamp before the yantra every morning. It is auspicious and blesses the native with success and wealth.
                   We (Vashishtha Jyotish Sansthana) provide these Yantras inscribed on Bhoj Patra (Birch) and Copper plates with 24 caret Gold polish, to let it effective for more days. Gold being considered the most effective metal for Yantras, it is always recommened Gold yantra or in alternative Gold polished Yantras. All the yantras are sent only after Pran pratishta (energising or performing puja on them). The Yantras are made for different purposes. Every purpose has to be gained through specific type of Yantras.
