Probably, when you were a child, you have sometimes accidentally spilled some sugar over the table, and you have been wondering to yourself “How can each grain have its place?” The sugar did not seem to scatter randomly. The grains were kind of symmetrically arranged. Also, you may even stare at your little arms, gazing at the hair that was growing out your skin. Each hair also has its place. For the first time, you may felt that some higher intelligence had placed the grains of sugar, just as it had set the stars and planets in space.
Let’s take a look around us – the place where we set our computer, our furniture, the mug on the table, our books, the mess of clothes in our bedroom, the microscopic dust floating between our eyes and this screen – all of them have their place concerning each other. Without having thought, we arranged things like that, and the items were arranged like that without any thought.
The order is not essential. We follow a pattern of form, just because of what grows in nature, but also in the way that we move and place objects, how we arrange the thoughts in our minds. They follow the logic, as well as a cycle, a shape, a proportion…and it appears somehow to be related to a formula – there is something “else” defining us.
In the West, this is called sacred geometry, and the Fibonacci sequence, the mathematical constant which is known as pi, the Golden Ration, and the Flower of Life all explain these patterns in the reality of shapes as mathematical formulae. Some say that sacred geometry is the proof of God’s existence and the intelligence behind all creation and that maybe God is creation itself.
One of the most famous sacred geometric patterns is Sri Yantra or Sri Chakra which sages of the Siddha Yoga lineage and their disciples have used to unravel secrets of the Universe for millennia. The Sri Yantra is a 12,000-year-old symbol, and it is considered the mother of all Yantras.
They are geometrical designs which contain center point or “dot” from which geometric shapes and designs radiate. Traditionally, these symbols are used to balance the left and right aspects of the brain, as well as focus our minds or to focus on spiritual concepts to obtain a spiritual benefit. It has even been said that Nikola Tesla, with his fractal mind, would see the Sri Yantra in blinding flashes.
The Sri Yantra is also considered as the tool for obtaining and fulfilling worldly desires and for material manifestation. It is a mathematically precise design, and it is based upon Golden Proportion or Phi ration. Every single thing that exists in nature is constructed in a proportionately exact manner, and this proportion is called the Golden/Phi ration.
The beauty of the face of someone is also based upon these Golden Proportions and even the shape, as well as the position of their front teeth. Our bodies are also roughly based on this Golden Proportions. In simple terms, this ratio suggests that everything, starting from the tiniest speck, expands, as well as grows in proportions of 1.618, from a microscopic level to a macroscopic level for increased stability and beauty.
Of course, we cannot explain the majesty, supremacy, and importance of the Sri Yantra thoroughly, but we will try to pay some attention to this geometric pattern that most of the Sanatan Dharma’s followers are just unaware of.
As it starts at the central dot or ‘Bindu’ of the Sri Yantra, it is known and proven to create some changes within the brain. It produces melatonin and serotonin derived hormone, which affects the modulation of sleep patterns in both seasonal and circadian rhythms. It is placed in the epithalamus, which is near the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres.
Here are some interesting facts about pineal gland:
Start with your eyes open, merely gazing at the yantra. The key factor is to maintain an open, as well as alert frame of mind, without drawing any conclusions, and free of concepts or thoughts. As you start feeling yourself gathering consciousness, permit yourself to flow with the momentum of this consciousness.
So, you should cross the walls of perception, leave limitations behind and open your right eyes!
