The essence of the Great Feminine

sriyantra200a.jpg

Inspired by Shakti Mantras, by Thomas Ashley-Farrand (Ballentine Books, 2003). A complex mandala composed of nine overlapping triangles, the Sri Chakra is considered to symbolize the essence of the Great Feminine. It is meant to convey the idea that the very power of the elements that compose the universe is feminine in nature.

“Sri” refers to a title used to imply that the Great Feminine is the power of the universe, and it is awake and functioning in the individual.

Rest your eyes on this powerful mandala; there are those who say if you do so for long enough you will become enlightened.
