Sri Yantra and Wikipedia: no Comment

The article ‘Sri Yantra’ is extremely short, 6 paragraphs and one list, 6 reference books, and 3 external links. Is that ALL the ancient symbol deserves to be presented on the one of the biggest English-speaking sites on the web?! How about my favorite ten books on topic worthy to read?

The team of people baked the review doesn’t look good for a one solid reason: not everyone of them believes in mathematical algorithm for drawing this polygon by tools at all. Information presented recently concerns mainly and only general description of a diagram.

In the list of structure terms the first is called “Trailokya Mohan or Bhupar, a square of three lines with four portals”. Prof. S.K.Ramachandra Rao in his book Sri-Chakra Its Yantra, Mantra and Tantra (Bangalore, 1982, 2008) uses ‘Trailokyamohana’ and ‘bhu-pura”, pp. 26-27. The same situation is with all other enclosures. Today is June, 18, 2013. What has happened with Indian tradition to write and pronounce Devanagari and its romanized form?

I’ve spent thirty minutes trying to understand what the whole article means. The entire trial IS so hopeless there is nothing to do to help. Hence, no comment.
