Aspects and Elements

A Yantra has four aspects namely ‘Form’, ‘Symbol’, ‘Deity’ and ‘Mantra’.'Form’ is again having six aspects. Five for five elements of nature:

                                                                         
  •  Earth, denoted by Square,
  •  Water, denoted by Circle,
  •  Fire, denoted by Triangle,
  •  Air denoted by Petals and
  •  Space - The Yantra enclosure.

What is a Yantra made of?

The sixth aspect of ‘Form’ is the material used for the Yantra. It could be Bhoj Patra (bark of the Himalayan Birch - biological term 'betula utilis' - tree, used centuries ago in India, as paper for writing), Copper, Silver or Gold. Yantra made up of Gold is considered to be highest in the order of strength.

Symbol:‘Symbol’ denotes the first principle of energy in Yantras. They are usually ‘Beeja Aksharas’ meaning spiritual alphabets. Human memory is visual and symbols, which are intuitive channels of communication between inside and outside.

Deity:‘Deity’ is the Astral Archtype, ruling over a particular faculty inside human body as well as outside in the space. This is the most difficult part in a Yantra manufacture, and will cause the whole difference in making the Yantra powerful.

Mantra:The Prana Prathishtha (invoking life) of the ‘Deity’ is a typical process, in which ‘Mantra’ plays an important role.‘Mantra’ is the aspect of vibration, creating the field of energy in the Yantra.

                                                                  

                                                                         
  •  Copper, Silver or Gold 

Desired impact

To say it in gross, the ‘Symbol’ connects the ‘Deity’ to the physical Yantra, and ‘Mantra’ creates the energy field of the ‘Deity’, to bring in the desired impact.Thus, the Yantra as a whole interacts with the energy body of the wearer, attuning it to amplify itself to external energy situation, so as to achieve the desired results.

Scientific view

If this sounds abstract to you, then let us now examine what our scientists have concluded recently.'Cymatics' is a field of research on sound, founded on preliminary research carried out by Hans Jenny, a Swiss scientist.What he did out of many things was that he created sounds of Sanskrit vowels through an instrument, on which a plate was kept and some powder was sprinkled. As one Sanskrit vowel made the plate vibrate, the powder on the plate took the form of the written vowel.Experiments were done with various sounds placed on a plate; and patterns of powder on the plate were photographed. Impression of the powder on plate exactly matched the sound to which it related.

Quantum research

Now let us also go through what quantum researchers, who conduct research on sub-atomic particles, have to say ‘There is a similarity between Cymatic Pictures and Quantum Particles. In both cases, that which appears to be a form is also a wave.They are both created simultaneously, organized by the principle of pulse. This is the great mystery with sound. There is no solidity. A form that appears solid is actually created by underlying vibration.’

In the attempt to explain this dualism between wave and form, physics developed the quantum theory in which the quantum field (or in our terminology the vibration) is understood as the one true reality and the particle (or form) and the wave (or motion) are the two polar manifestation of only one reality vibration. Interesting, isn’t it?

Trinity

So we arrive at the following three principles (Trinity), acceptable to the Vedic science as well as our modern quantum research:

1) Vibration and periodicity as the ground field

2) Form and motion as two poles

3) The above two constitute an invisible whole

Panchtatwas

In a yantra the base matereial through symbols of Panchtatwas is made to vibrate in a periodicity fixed by the symbols by the sub-atomic form of a diety in a motion decided by the mantra. This when worn by a person makes his energies vibrate to a harmonics of external energies to achieve the desired results.

Purest material

Here I shall also tell that the more pure the base material is the more efficient the yantra shall be, provided the diety and mantras are performed through right process. The purest form available is gold. The vedas are filled with mantras, symbol and cryptic statements and codes.

Ancient language

They do not reveal themselves readily to those who do not look deeply. It is not enough to have records of ancestors if we do not know how to read them. Nor is it enough to translate them into our language if we do not understand the background and orientation of the language in which they were composed.

Spiritual perspective

Interpretation unaware of these points only creates confusion just as an unfocused lens only serves to give us a blurred image.Vedas as a spiritual book can not be understood from a non Spiritual perspective, any more than a book of science can be understood by one who does not have a scientific mind.What would we think of a book on science by one, who does not have a scientific aptitude? Interpretation of spiritual texts by those who are not of a spiritual bent of mind, may be equally questionable.

 “THAT’S WHY ALMOST ALL YANTRAS AVAILABLE IN THE MARKET ARE INAFFECTIVE!!!”.

VEDIC CODE OF LIFE

God did not promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sunshine without rain. But he did promise strengh for the day, comfort for tears, light for the way and anticipation of solutions to all your problems, through the knowledge and power of YANTRAS – THE VEDIC CODE OF LIFE (VCL).
