Mandala Monday – Shree Yantra, Sri Yantra, Sri Chakra by theYogaMandala.com

Sri Yantra by Atmara Rebecca CloeThe Sri Yantra is the most powerful of all Yantras, so it is also called the king yantra. It is considered a highly effective tool for meditation, contemplation, and concentration.

The Sri Yantra should have a strong influence on success, power, authority as well as a financial success if these aspects are to be achieved within the framework of an honest, careful and peaceful action.

SHREE means Sanskrit prosperity and YANTRA instrument – consequently, it is a graphical instrument for achieving prosperity. The notion of prosperity is, however, not only for the material but also, or primarily, with the nonmaterial, spiritual and spiritual. Meditating on the Sri Yantra helps us on the way to prosperity, harmony and inner peace.

The Sri Yantra is also referred to as the Sri Chakra, as it is considered the primordial Yantra, the mother of all the other yantras that derive from it. The three-dimensional form of the Sri Yantra is to represent Mount Meru, the mystical, cosmic mountain in the center of the universe. Sri Yantra is a representation of creation and is connected with the tree of life. The energetic effect of Sri Yantra should be seventy times larger than that of a pyramid.

The Sri Yantra could be understood as a place of spiritual pilgrimage – it represents the cosmos on the macrocosmic level and the human body on the microcosmic level.

The Sri Yantra is a graphical configuration of nine triangles, composed of two lotus petals, and this in turn from a surrounding gateway, called the “citadel of the earth”. The four upright triangles symbolize Shiva – the male principle the nine interlocking triangles around the Bindu, the central core of the Yantra. In the center are five downward triangles, which represent the Shakti, the female principle. The nine interlocked triangles again form 43 smaller triangles, each with a divine principle with specific aspects.

The aim of the contemplation of Sri Yantra is to discover its innermost sources to promote the process of becoming.

The Sri Yantra is used as part of meditation as a visual aid for the concentration of the mind.

TED Talk Thursday – Andy Puddicombe: All it takes is 10 mindful minutes

According to TED.com: “When is the last time you did absolutely nothing for 10 whole minutes? Not texting, talking or even thinking? Mindfulness expert Andy Puddicombe describes the transformative power of doing just that: Refreshing your mind for 10 minutes a day, simply by being mindful and experiencing the present moment. (No need for incense or sitting in uncomfortable positions.)”

“Andy Puddicombe wants you to take a break — not just from work, but from your own mind, which is so full of anxieties about the world and anxieties about its own anxieties.To help you do that, Puddicombe, a former Buddhist monk, co-founded Headspace, a project to make meditation more accessible to more people in their everyday lives. Puddicombe also writes prolifically for the Huffington Post and the Guardian, on the benefits of mindful thinking for healthy living.”

Good advice. Enjoy.

For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery from www.ted.com: “TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”
