The Sri Yantra ("sacred instrument") is a yantra formed by
nine interlocking triangles that surround and radiate out from the
central (bindu) point, the junction point between the physical universe and its
unmanifest source. Four isosceles triangles with the apices upwards,
representing Shiva or the Masculine. Five isosceles triangles with the
apices downward, symbolizing female embodiment Shaki.
Thus the Sri Yantra also represents the union of Masculine and Feminine
Divine. These nine triangles are of various sizes and intersect with
one another. In the middle is the power point (bindu), visualizing the
highest, the invisible, elusive center from which the entire figure and
the cosmos expand. The triangles are enclosed by two rows of (8 and 16)
petals, representing the lotus of creation and reproductive vital
