Nav Durga Yantra - the yantra of the nine Durgas

The Yantra is the graphic, mathematics and magic representation of the divine one. It is an ancient tradition that get lost in the night of the times; we can find graphic representations of God in the prehistoric mural paintings, games of numbers and magic squares in a lot of ancient cultures. But it is in the tantric tradition that theYantras assume a bigger spectrum of uses.

Many Yantras are contained in a square (bhupur) with four gates. The square represents the material world while the gates are the points of access into the Yantra. Apart from invoking the divine, the Yantra is used by the Aghoris as object of meditation. It is painted in the walls of the temples or next to the dhuni (sacred fire). It is engraved on small copper plates and usually positioned in the mandir (temple). Or It is written within small squares of paper inside a silver or copper container as amulets (kavacha); for every application there is a specify Yantra. The study of the Yantras is an important footstep in the particular sadhana (spiritual path) of the Aghoris.

VASTU YANTRA Vastu Shastra is an ancient doctrine which consists of precepts born to a traditional view of how the laws of nature affect human dwellings. The designs are based on directional alignments. It used to be applied in Hindu architecture, especially for temples, and extends to other areas, including vehicles, boats, furniture, sculpture, paintings, etc. The Vastu Yantra is an indispensable part of Vastu Shastra and constitutes the mathematical basis and schematic for the generation of design. It is themetaphysical plan of a building that incorporates coarse bodies and supernatural forces. It provides the method that determines the requirements of architecture in relation to its directions.

KAAL SARP YOG YANTRA Kaal Sarp Yog happen when in a Horoscope, all the seven planets (Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Mars, Mercury and Saturn) are placed between Rahu and Ketu Axis (north and south nodes of Moon), Rahu is serpents head and Ketu is dragons tail. This planets combination is considered very evil andharmful for the person. However have Kaal Sarp Yog in the horoscope does not mean that the person will be totally unlucky and devoid of all the joys of life. One of the remedies for this problem is the Kaal Sarp Yog Yantra to establish in your home and worship it regularly.

Swastika
In the West the swastika association with Nazism has largely overshadowed its religious and cultural significance. The word swastika comes from Sanskrit and signifies well being and good luck and it is still used extensively throughout the east as decoration on homes, temples and at festivals. Further more ancient Greeks, Hittites, Celts and even Native Americans also used the symbol. The swastika was subverted and adopted by Adolf Hitler in the 1920s as a symbol for his Nazi party, a meaning which has taken on significance in the west. It's time to clear up the misconception and re-claim the swastika.

The Flower of Life


The Flower of Life is another symbol found in many cultures that use sacred geometry. Ancient representations of this symbol can be found in India, in the Assyrian palaces, Egypt, China, Japan and many other places. Kabbalistic Tree of Life symbol is derived from the diagram of the Flower of Life.

Sacred Geometry
Sacred geometry is used in every culture in the construction and structuring of sacred buildings like temples, mosques, megaliths, monuments, churches and sacred spaces such as altars, sacred fires, as well as the creation of sacred art or objects. Here are some examples:
