The Sri Chakra of Devi is perfect synchoronization of Universal Reality and the Individual Soul.

The Advaita system propounded Adi Shankaracharya,based on the Mahavakyas of the Vedas define Reality as Brahman .

It is is beyond Attributes.

It is beyond senses and a Noumenon.

It is Absolute with no reference to relate to.

The Individual Soul,Jiva is but a part of Brahman.

It is not separate,different from Brahman.

The individual soul,the world of Names and Forms are illusory in the sense that they are Relative.

The Individual Soul and the world of Names and Forms is because of Illusion.

This Illusion,at the Individual level is Avidya,Nescience,absence of Absolute Knowledge or loosely put Ignorance.

At the Universal level it is,Called Maya.
The Reality ,Brahman is the emobodiment of Being,Consciousness and Bliss.

SAT,CHIT,ANANDA.

Once ignorance,Avidya is removed the false ,Relative knowledge gives way to Absolute Knowledge,Brahma Gnana,when the Individual soul becomes aware of its original state,that of Reality,Brahman.

This,in short,is Advaita.

As it is impossible for the human mind to concentrate on mere principles,Hinduism,as a first step,recommends Personal God.

To facilitate the process of integrating the Universal Soul with the Individual soul,four tools are suggested.

1.Gods/Goddesses.

2.Sounds in the form of Mantras

3.Geometrical shapes and

4.Combination of Sound and Geometrical shapes,Mantra and Yantra,which form Tantra.

One of the most effective Yantra is Sri Chakra of Devi.

Sri Chakra and OM are interchangeable.

Adi Shankaracharya established Sri Chakra invmany places,including Kolluru and Sringeri.

The perfect Sri Chakra can be found at Sringeri,the Mutt established by Adi Shankaracharya.

The ancient temple of Sri Sharada, the presiding deity of Sringeri has a glorious history that begins with the setting up of the Dakshinamnaya Peetham by Sri Shankara Bhagavatpada. Originally it was an unpretentious shrine with the Murti of Sharada made of sandalwood, installed over the Sri Chakra that Sri Adi Shankara carved on a rock. Subsequently Sri Bharati Krishna Tirtha and Sri Vidyaranya had a temple built in the Kerala style, with timber and tiled roof. Sri Bharati Krishna Tirtha substituted the sandalwood idol with the present golden idol.

Sri Sacchidananda Shivabhinava Nrisimha Bharati raised the present structure in granite with polished granite walling round the sanctum and Sri Chandrasekhara Bharati consecrated the new temple in May 1916. Sri Abhinava Vidyatirtha made several improvements in the temple. The Mahamandapam has huge stone pillars exquisitely carved with deities like Durga, Raja Rajeshwari, Dwarapalakas and Devis which are all sculpted according to the Shilpa Sastras practised in Tamilnadu.

Sanctified by the worship of an unbroken succession of Acharyas of the highest purity, loftiest devotion and unsurpassed mantric powers, the Murti of Sri Sharada radiates grace and blessings.’

Sri Yantra Pasupathaye Namaha Construction Site  Banks of Mississippi Iowa

Do you know what language is written on the yantra?’

The language written on this Yantra is Sanskrit.

What is intriguing is that the Yantra contains the phrase ‘ Pasupathaye Namaha’

The Epithet Pasupathi is for Lord Shiva and is not generally found in Sri Yantra.


Worship of Gods,Goddesses with human/Super Human Attributes,though not advocated by the Vedas,they stress on the Realisation of Reality,Brahman which is beyond Attributes,the Vedas and the later Smritis,realizing the inability of Human Mind to concentrate on a Vacuum or Attribute-less Principle recommended as a first step the Worship of Reality as One with Name and Form.

This is called Saguna Aradhana,while fixing Mind on the Attribute-less Brahman is called Nirguna Aradhana.

There are others methods recommended.

The Realization through Sound,Mantra.

Through Geometrical Shapes,Yantra.

Through esoteric practices,involving Mind and Body,Tantra.

One of the most powerful Yantras is the Sri Yantra.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Though generally attributed to Lalitha Devi and by some texts to Lakshmi as an Attribute of Lalitha,Sri Yantra is Nirguna Upasna.

Please read my articles on Lalitha,Yantras,Devi Aksharas.

The Yantra contains the Beeja Mantras ‘Sreem,Hreem,Kleem’ among others.

One of the readers of this blog,Sri. Linn Honeycutt sent me a message thus,a couple of days ago.

Greetings, 

      I met a man when I was in Wisconsin and he showed me a picture and said he found it. He was on a construction site on the banks of the Mississippi. I sent him a message and trying to get more details.

    Do you know what language is written on the yantra?’

The language written on this Yantra is Sanskrit.

What is intriguing is that the Yantra contains the phrase ‘ Pasupathaye Namaha’

The Epithet Pasupathi is for Lord Shiva and is not generally found in Sri Yantra.

I request scholars and Sri Vidya Upasakas to throw more light on this.

*The Yantra was found in a construction site on the banks of River Mississippi,Burlington,Iowa,US.

just confirmed it came from Burlington, Iowa where the Mississippi river runs east of the town.’

There is a debate about the Pasupathi Seal found in Mohenja Daro in Indus valley,dated 5000 years ago.

One of the points of the debate is whether the seal contains Male or Female figure.

Shall be writing on this.

UFO Directs To Sri Yantra In River Bed US

They estimated its location as eight miles away and 15 degrees above the horizon. This placed it directly over the dry lake bed. They watched the stationary cloud for about an hour. Due to the eyewitness accounts, the sighting was classified as an unidentified, and was later associated with the Sri Yantra earth scraping. After the story broke, a group of artists claimed they had created the Sri Yantra. ‘


Sri Chakra is the Tantric Symbol in Hinduism.

It is a Mathematically organized symbol to facilitate the worship of the Divine Mother.

Please read my articles on this subject.

 

Sometime earlier I read that Sri Yantra was found in the US on a lake bed .

I wanted to write about it but forgot and got busy in writing about the History of Sanatana Dharam based on archaeological evidence available across the world.

I remembered the Sri Chakra article this morning when I was going for a walk .

I checked my articles on Crop Circles.

The following information does not appear in my articles.

‘A very large, perfectly formed, ancient Hindu mandala called the Sri Yantra was discovered inscribed into the dry lake bed by an Air National Guard pilot on a normal training run from a base near Boise, Idaho. This symbol was over a quarter of a mile in length, and consisted of over 13 miles of lines etched into the impacted mud 3”-10” deep. No human or tire tracks were found anywhere near the site. A group of 5 artists from Iowa claimed responsibility for the symbol’s appearance saying they carved the entire design with a garden cultivator during a nine-day period. No other pilots or anyone else reported seeing the design at any stage of construction.

“Analysis of the formation’s line indicated that the soil had been removed, whereas the artists’ garden cultivator / plow method produced small mounds of dirt on either side of their demonstration lines left from where they plowed,” according to ICCRA. ,

‘Two researchers, Don Newman and Alan Decker visited the site on September 15, 1990, and reported the symbol as being furrowed into the dry lake bed about 3″ deep, noting that the area was noticeably missing any signs of tire tracks or foot prints even though their own tire tracks left 1/4″ deep marks on the crusty surface of the dry lake bed. After further investigation their colleague, Jim Deardorff, wrote the story for UFO Magazine. ,

After one year Deardorff learned from Jennifer Brown-Jacobs, who at the time had been head of the Portland UFO Group, that two men had a UFO sighting in the area during this same period. They’d been camping with a sail-plane group at the western edge of the Alvord Desert near that dry lake bed. Their sighting took place the evening of July 5 or 6th around 10 pm. They reported seeing an array of three bright lights, the color of sodium-vapor lamps, forming an equilateral triangular with the apex facing upwards to the northeast. The array occupied about three degrees width and lasted ten minutes.

They didn’t think much of it at the time and when they looked that way again 20 minutes later the lights were gone. However, they noticed a strange small puffy cloud where the lights had been. Extending from the cloud were two straight appendages positioned at 2:30 and 8:30 respectively at 12 degrees overall. They estimated its location as eight miles away and 15 degrees above the horizon. This placed it directly over the dry lake bed. They watched the stationary cloud for about an hour. Due to the eyewitness accounts, the sighting was classified as an unidentified, and was later associated with the Sri Yantra earth scraping. After the story broke, a group of artists claimed they had created the Sri Yantra. ‘

Hinduism Is Mathematics Fibonacci Golden Ratio In Meru

The ratio 1:1.618 is a golden ratio which is found all over the cosmos. Stick out your forefinger. The ratio from the first two bones is 1:1.618. Now the ratio between the 2nd middle bone and the third bone terminating at the knuckle is also 1:1.618


Philosophical enquiry needs an  analytic  Mathematical Mind.

One would notice that most of the Great Philosophers of the world have also been great Mathematicians.

Rene Descartes, Leibniz,Spinoza,Siddhas of India,Pingala, Arya Bhatta, Varaha Mihira….

It is easy for a Mathematician to understand Nature which is mathematically constructed.

Every atom to an elephant is made mathematically.

There is Uniformity and Rhythm in Nature.

This applies to actions and reactions.

The term Rta is dealt separately in Hinduism.

This means order.

Please read my post on this.

Another point in Hinduism is what is in Macrocosm is in Microcosm and vice versa.

What is found in the Universe is found in Man.

For example,

The ratio 1:1.618 is a golden ratio which is found all over the cosmos. Stick out your forefinger. The ratio from the first two bones is 1:1.618. Now the ratio between the 2nd middle bone and the third bone terminating at the knuckle is also 1:1.618.  The ration from your navel to top of your head and bottom of your feet is also 1:1.618

This is called the Fibonacci Ratio.

Fibonacci Ratio in Leaves

Arrangements of the leaves

Fibonacci Ration in Leaves.Image.jpg
Fibonacci Ration in Leaves.

Also, many plants show the Fibonacci numbers in the arrangements of the leaves around their stems. If we look down on a plant, the leaves are often arranged so that leaves above do not hide leaves below. This means that each gets a good share of the sunlight and catches the most rain to channel down to the roots as it runs down the leaf to the stem.
The computer generated ray-traced picture here is created by my brother, Brian.

Leaves per turn

The Fibonacci numbers occur when counting both the number of times we go around the stem, going from leaf to leaf, as well as counting the leaves we meet until we encounter a leaf directly above the starting one.

If we count in the other direction, we get a different number of turns for the same number of leaves.

The number of turns in each direction and the number of leaves met are three consecutive Fibonacci numbers!

Fibonacci Number in Mount Meru

 

Mount Meru is an actual and sacred mountain in Tanzania/Arctic, it is also the name given to the Fibonacci series in the Maatraameru (Mountain of Cadence) written by Pingala in the Chhandah-shastra (Art of Prosody) around 450 BC. In this writing, it was organized as a pyramid, today known as Pascal’s triangle, like this:

Mount Meru In Numbers.photot.jpg
Mount Meru In Numbers

Kubera was revered as the chief of the Guhyakas and was the ‘king of kings’, the ‘god’ and ‘guardian of the North’. The word Guhyakas comes from the word ‘godha’ (root gudh or guh), meaning chameleon – a dragon-serpent. It seems that in Hindu mythology, ‘god’ is a ‘naga’ or ‘dragon serpent’ who lives at the top of Mount Meru and hides a golden treasure.

Thus we find that God is associated in ancient Hindu mythology with the infinite and irrational golden ratio at the center of a Fibonacci spiral symbolized as a mountain, pyramid or perhaps an infinite spiraling vortex (like the Hindu Schwass-tika). Further reading on the subject describes Mt. Meru as home to all of the gods, closely resembling the Biblical concept of a heaven paved with gold.

As one last note, in Vedic astrology, Kubera’s golden treasure is guarded by Shukra, which is the Hindu name for the planet Venus. Shukra is then celebrated in a specific month in the Hindu calendar called JyeshTha, corresponding to May-June.

One would find he same in Carnatic Music and Bharata Natya.

Location of Devis in Sri Chakra.

 

Five downward pointing triangles representing Devi intersect with four upward pointing triangles representing Siva, forming 43 triangles including the central triangle.

From the five Shakti triangles comes creation and from the four Shiva triangles comes the dissolution. The union of five Shaktis and four Fires causes the chakra of creation to evolve.

At the centre of the bindu of the Shri Yantra is Kamakala, which has three bindus. One is red, one is white and one is mixed. The red bindu is Kurukulla the Female form, the white bindu is Varahi the Male form, and the mixed bindu is the union of Shiva & Shakti – the individual as the potential Shri Cakra. Varahi, the father-form, gives four dhatus to the child and Kurukulla, the mother-form, gives five dhatus to the child. Theses represent the nine dhatus of the human body.

Varahi’s four fires are the 12 (4 x 3) sun Kalas, the 12 Zodiac constellations. Kurukulla’s five triangles are the 15 (5 x 3) Kalas of the moon, 15 lunar Tithis.

These nine triangles also represent the nine stages of growth of the human child in the womb.Surrounding the 43 triangles formed by the intersection of the nine triangles is the 16 petals circle. Surrounding the 16 petal circle is an 8 petal circle. After that the 3 lines and at the outermost part of the Sriyantra there are 3 lines called the Bhupura.

 

The Form of the Goddess is Kanchi Kamakshi.

 

*The Poojas to be performed for the other Devatas, Ganesha, Surya, Shiva,  Vishnu and Devi are provided ina separate post.

 

(Citation . http://www.astrojyoti.com/scpooja3.htm

 

Perform Angannyasa and karanyasa as in Lalitha Sahasranama or simply recite the following Mantra.

 

“Avahanam najanami, najanami visarjanam,
poojamchaiva najanamani kshamaswa Maheswari.
Yatkrutam yatkarishyami tathsarvam twamarpanam,
poojam poorna phalam kuru”.

 

The tip of the top triangle must be pointing at you, at the bottom right hand side corner of the Shreechakra resides Lord Ganesha.

The bottom left hand side corner resides Lord Surya.

The top left side corner resides Lord Vishnu and the top right corner of the Shreechakra resides Lord Shiva.

They must be worshipped before starting the Pooja of the Nava-Avaranas.

After that the eight primordial directions are guarded by the eight Lokapalas. Indra guards the East, Agni guards the South East, Yama guards the South, Nirriti guards the South West, Varuna guards the West, Vayu guards the North East, Soma guards the North and Ishana guards the North East.

Navavarana Pooja Lalitha Tripura Sundari Principle


The Navarana Pooja for Devi is considered  as Supreme in the worship of Lalitha Devi, Tripura Sundari.

 

This forms a part of Tantra Shastra of Hinduism.

 

Avarana means concealment,masking, obstruction.

 

The attempt to realize self is  is paved the path of Obstructions.

 

This lies with the individuals mind and ego.

Losing one’s ego and the impediments of the mind clears the way for realization, first the Saguna Brahma,Reality of Name and Form.

 

Once the level is reached, one is automatically guided to the Ultimate Reality, the Nirguna Brahman.

 

The Avaranas of are of two kinds.

 

1.Klesa Avarana.

Klesa means confusion, unable to decide.

Sinful desires, Lust,hankering after Wealth, lead to misery.

These obstruct the individual in spiritual path.

The removal of these obstacles,Klesaprahan is essential.( Gaudapadakarika)

Kama, Krodha, Lobha, Madha, Mathsarya, Dvesha, Moha, Maana are some of the Klesas.

 

The other in Jneya Avarana.

Here the object of worship is seen as different from the subject, from the one who is worshiping.

The merging of the worshiper and the worshiped is Realization.

 

There are procedures laid down in the Tantra Shastras for the removal of the Avaranas.

 

A form of Pooja performed to Goddess Lalitha Devi, Tripura Sundari is called the Navarana Pooja.

 

This Pooja is performed for the Sri Chakra.

 

It is essential to understand the construction of Ari Yantra before starting the Pooja.

 

Five downward pointing triangles representing Devi intersect with four upward pointing triangles representing Siva, forming 43 triangles including the central triangle.

 

From the five Shakti triangles comes creation and from the four Shiva triangles comes the dissolution.

 

The union of five Shaktis and four Fires causes the chakra of creation to evolve.

 

At the centre of the bindu of the Shri Yantra is Kamakala.

 

It has three bindus. One is red, one is white and one is mixed.

 

The red bindu is Kurukulla the Female form, the white bindu is Varahi the Male form, and the mixed bindu is the union of Shiva & Shakti – the individual as the potential Shri Cakra. Varahi, the father-form, gives four dhatus to the child and Kurukulla, the mother-form, gives five dhatus to the child. Theses represent the nine dhatus of the human body.

 

Varahi’s four fires are the 12 (4 x 3) sun Kalasa, the 12 Zodiac constellations. Kurukulla’s five triangles are the 15 (5 x 3) Kalas of the moon, 15 lunar Tithis.

 

These nine triangles also represent the nine stages of growth of the human child in the womb.

 

 

Surrounding the 43 triangles formed by the intersection of the nine triangles is the 16 petals circle.

 

Surrounding the 16 petal circle is an 8 petal circle.

 

After that the 3 lines and at the outermost part of the Sriyantra there are 3 lines called the Bhupura.

 

The 43 triangles constitute the six inner sections called Avaranas, the two circles of petals are two more avaranas and the Bhupura of 3 lines is the last Avarana.

 

These 9 Avaranas of the Sri Yantra have various presiding Devis.

They are the Devi’s Parivar (retinue) of total 108. In the Srichakra pooja they are systematically worshipped one by one with their names and mantras.

 

The presiding Deity of Srichakra, Devi, is Known as Lalita Tripura Sundari.

 

The form of Devi Kamakshi of Kancheepuram is the closest resemblance of the Devi as described in the scriptures.

 

Lalita means The One Who Plays.

 

All creation, manifestation and dissolution is considered to be a play of Devi.

 

Tri-Pura means the three worlds and Sundari means beauty.

 

She is the transcendent beauty of the three worlds.

 

She is the ruler of the the three gunas of Satva, Rajas and Tamas; and sun, moon and fire – the zodiac and the planets, and therefore Time itself;

She is also “tripura” as Will (Iccha), Knowledge (Jnana) and Action (Kriya).

 

She is also “tripura” as intellect, feelings & physical sensation; and She is triple as the three states of the soul – awakening, dreaming and -sleeping states.

 

Her five triangles also represent the Pancha Tatwas and the Pancha Bhootas. ( ”Panchami pancha bhuteshi pancha sankhyopacharini “. Lalitha Sahasranama)

 

Lalita holds five flowery arrows, noose, goad and bow. The noose represents attachment, the goad represents repulsion, the sugarcane bow represents the mind and the flowery arrows are the five sense objects.
