These Stars Are So Beautiful, Everyone of Them Deserves a Separate Post

SRI YANTRA #10, 1994

10 points of touch in kernel

14+10+10+8=42 colour triangles in kernel

Diameter of kernel 9.9 cm; 3 11/16’’

Diameter of mandala min 13.9 cm; 5 1/2’’; max  17.9 cm; 7’’

Diagonal of defence square 25.2 cm; 9 15/16’’

Side of defence square max 25.1 cm; 9 15/16’’

The whole collection 1994-95 Sri Yantra and More Difficult Star Polygons consists of 32 items. Some of them are in the private collections, some of them aren’t for sale at all.  Every item is covered by half-transparent protective paper fixed back right side by small drops of glue, it flips easily and/or can be promptly removed.

This is the last copy (Sri Yantra #10) with ten touches in the double thin and contrast thick circumference. Width of inner lines of polygons is  0.25 mm only.  All eighteen points of three lines’ meetings have mathematically exact execution, that is why watching the stars is the  splendid means for meditation.  The form of Bhupura (defence square) is double svastika in three black lines.

Special features of this copy are also its simplicity of double line for main chakras, and triple contour of mandala getting thinner when moving out, but three basic lines of the defence square gradually get larger in the same direction.

The algorithm of its construction is still unpublished, and I hope will never be published, that IS and must be a secret path to special kind of knowledge.  Just simple following them requires too much power, too much time and life, and the life will never be the same like it was in the beginning. Other cultures, other languages, no family, no friends, no leaving out a room, and to be face-to-face with every feature of itself.  How often people are ready for this?

It is my pleasure now to show the result of my own journey and I really want Sri Yantra star polygons to travel around the world, they are worth it, they have beauty people never will have, because people are still mortal, and stars just aren’t (and never were).

The story of discovery of the ancient mathematical algorithm and my bragging in small portions, its perfection in two variations (easy – 6 points of touch and more complex – 10 points of touch) of Sri Yantra and nine /!!!!!/ variations of more difficult star polygons, Sri Sarvabhava Yantra (part of them at least)can be seen here, definitely this month or next.

Another Couple of Polygons, 09 and 10

SRI YANTRA 09, 1994

 

10 points of touch in kernel

14+10+10+8=42 colour triangles in kernel

Diameter of kernel 10.9 cm; 4 5/16’’

Diameter of mandala min 15.5 cm; 6 1/8’’; max  19.8 cm; 7 13/16’’

Diagonal of defence square 27.4 cm; 10 3/4’’

Side of defence square max 24.7 cm; 9 11/16’’

 

The whole collection 1994-95 Sri Yantra and More Difficult Star Polygons consists of 32 items. Some of them are in the private collections, some of them aren’t for sale at all.  Every item is covered by half-transparent protective paper fixed back right side by small drops of glue, it flips easily and/or can be promptly removed.

This is the one of the best stars in my collection, her lines in central kernel have width of only 1/4th of mm (0.25 mm), it was definitely a challenge, and there was a great joy when I achieved the goal.  All places where three lines are crossing each other have mathematical solutions and beauty.  I was so brave at that moment that I have put principal chakras into double circumference, thin (inner) and thick (outer, for contrast) one.  

This star has another notable feature — she is absolutely strong in mathematical gist.  Sometimes I like complex Bhupura drawing (double svastika), sometimes I like to draw it simple (four gates by sides), and I think it’s a kind of eastern simpleness people can search the whole life, and not everyone can say in the end it has been found.

Concentration during work can be so wonderful, I think the ink turns into blood, it’s shining when you work, it’s becoming firm and strong after, and it bears blood and breath of those happy days forever. Movements of drawing tools must be strong, gentle, soft and exact in the same time.  It can make person happy.  And made, at least one.

The story of discovery of the ancient mathematical algorithm and my bragging, its perfection in two variations (easy – 6 points of touch and more complex – 10 points of touch) of Sri Yantra and nine /!!!/ variations of more difficult star polygons, Sri Sarvabhava Yantra (part of them at least) can be seen here this month, 2012.

 

This Is a Twin Sister of Sri Yantra 03, 1994 — Sri Yantra 04, 1994

SRI YANTRA # 04, 1994

 

10 points of touch in kernel

14+10+10+8=42 colour triangles in kernel

Diameter of kernel 11.9 cm; 4 11/16’’

Diameter of mandala min 16.6 cm; 6 5/8’’; max  21.2 cm; 8 3/8’’

Diagonal of defence square 31 cm; 12 3/16’’

Side of defence square max 25.6 cm; 10 1/16’’

 

The whole collection 1994-95 Sri Yantra and More Difficult Star Polygons consists of 32 items. Some of them are in the private collections, some of them aren’t for sale at all.  Every item is covered by half-transparent protective paper fixed back right side by small drops of glue, it flips easily and/or can be promptly removed.

This is a twin sister of previous one, Sri Yantra # 04, the only difference is that it is of blue (more difficult colour to control by brush) colour.  The lines of mandala and square of defence increase their width inside out from centre dot.  Every Sri Yantra star has 18 points of three lines’ interlacing, and they must be without empty space inside, that’s the key to mathematical design and old wisdom, and parallel and straight lines serve same goal too.

Frankly, this item isn’t an item of sacred geometry art at all, it’s my life, my brain and heart, as is. I feel the beauty of stars now with the same passion as it was fifteen years ago. Quite a fact, a nice feeling to begin every new day of the year.  In English I’d like to describe it with the word ‘bewitched’.

The story of discovery of the ancient mathematical algorithm, its perfection in two variations (easy – 6 points of touch and more complex – 10 points of touch) of Sri Yantra and nine /!!/ variations of more difficult star polygons, Sri Sarvabhava Yantra (part of them at least) can be seen here very soon, in June 2012.

 

Let’s Watch Some Examples of Sri Yantra Art:

SRI YANTRA 03, 1994

 

10 touching points in kernel

14+10+10+8=42 colour triangles in kernel

Diameter of kernel 12 cm; 4 11/16’’

Diameter of mandala min 16.9 cm; 6 5/8’’; max  21.1 cm; 8 5/16’’

Diagonal of defence square 31 cm; 12 3/16’’

Side of defence square max 25.6 cm; 10 1/16’’

 

The whole collection 1994-95 Sri Yantra and More Difficult Star Polygons consists of 32 items. Some of them are in the private collections, some of them aren’t for sale at all.  Every item is covered by half-transparent protective paper fixed back right side by small drops of glue, it flips easily and/or can be promptly removed.

 The stars #03 and #04 are from the first series, 1994.  The width of line inside a kernel is approximately 0.5 mm, three lines of mandala (Mekhala) have different width, three lines of defence square (Bhupura) repeat the rhythm of mandala, and its Bhupura is simple square with four gates.  The very special feature of stars #03 and #04 is 10 touches inside the kernel.  I’d like to underline this fact because it is distinctly more difficult design to perform.

 Looking at digital images of Sri Yantra on the Internet never makes me happy — I cannot see naps of paper, colours, I don’t feel warmth of work, hands, heart; I cannot see a dot in the paper from the leg of compass…  Internet serves us with providing information about art, i.e. as means to inform and to be informed.  Only the real thing can move heart and bring something new to mind.  When I have begun to work with star polygons fifteen years ago I feel myself only this way.  It works out.  All other routes can wait.

The story of discovery of the ancient mathematical algorithm, its perfection in two variations (easy – 6 points of touch and more complex – 10 points of touch) of Sri Yantra and nine /!/ variations of more difficult star polygons, Sri Sarvabhava Yantra (part of them at least) can be seen here in the future, I guess.
