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.

 

The Second Series, The Last Sri Yantra #18 (Third Series is Next)

SRI YANTRA #18, 1994

6 points of touch in kernel

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

Diameter of kernel 10.9 cm; 4 1/4’’

Diameter of mandala min 15.5 cm; 6 1/16’’; max  19.7 cm; 7 3/4’’

Diagonal of defence square 27.7 cm; 10 7/8’’

Side of defence square max 23.4 cm; 9 3/16’’

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.

Both Sri Yantra #17 and #18 are the last pair open for public eye and for sale, and I have to underline the fact that in timeline they are closer than others to the time when the algorithm was just discovered (5 January 1994) but it took several months more before I really could enjoy a process of creating my own collection.  The basic colours of Sri Yantra #18 are red, blue, and yellow.  Mekhala and Bhupura (mandala and square of defence) have three black lines of different width, increasing in inside out direction.

 I cannot help myself to say something about cult of simplicity in eastern countries widely spread among educated people in the past.  I know that I can sit at my favourite desk and make up any kind of complexity (if you have seen more difficult star polygons you would understand what I’m talking about), but these two stars ARE closer to the first experience and greatest joy of discovery of the algorithm.  It was enlightenment.  I was speechless three days, I am still  happy 15 years after that, I am just happy like a person who can see the world by the same eyes as a person three millenniums ago in another point of globe.  No boundaries in time and space.

The idea of Sri Chakra was a source for many people during long time, and these two stars #17 and #18 were the most powerful source for the whole collection and for the entire life of author.  Y’know, 15 years have passed, and I have a reason to think about their beauty to the end of the days.

 The full story of glory and coolness 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, NINE/!!!!!!!/ variations of more difficult star polygons, Sri Sarvabhava Yantra (part of them) can be seen here, I hope.

 The basic colours of Sri Yantra #17 are red, green, and yellow. Mekhala and Bhupura (mandala and square of defence) has three black lines of different width, increasing in inside out direction.

 Frankly I have said almost all I had to say to levitate our conversation long enough. If you liked anything don’t hesitate to contact me any time online.

Four Posts Under Slogan: Transparent and Half-transparent? Sounds Naked Enough…

SRI YANTRA #16, 1994

 

6 points of touch in kernel

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

Diameter of kernel 10.9 cm; 4 1/4’’

Diameter of mandala min 15.5 cm; 6 1/8’’; max  19.9 cm; 7 13/16’’

Diagonal of defence square 28 cm; 11’’

Side of defence square max 23.1 cm; 9 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.

Sri Yantra #16 is a blue twin sister of previously described item.  It has a bit greater diameter, 4 1/4’’, and with mathematically exact straight lines it adds beauty to this kind of art.  The outermost 14-pointed star polygon is drawn inside of thin and contrast thick circles.  The outside diameter of Mekhala has four lines and they form two green strip and one white (in centre).  Defence square contains four gates, three black lines contour and full green edge.

 

The mathematical exactness of the whole collection (including this one) gives a tool for those who practice such kind of meditation.  It is highly organised piece of paper and lines, it’s a symbol of very, sometimes extremely difficult laws of nature human can never understand, and simple beauty surrounding us in a drop of rain, leaves on the trees or anything else — in the same time. All kind of imagination is inside the chakras.  That is.  The problem is how to get it out.

SRI YANTRA #15, 1994

 

6 points of touch in kernel

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

Diameter of kernel 10.9 cm; 4 1/4’’

Diameter of mandala min 15.4 cm; 6 1/16’’; max  19.6 cm; 7 3/4’’

Diagonal of defence square 27 cm; 10 5/8’’

Side of defence square max 23.5 cm; 9 1/4’’

 

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.

 Sri Yantra #15 has a bit greater diameter, 4 1/4’’, and with mathematically exact straight lines it adds beauty to this kind of art.  The outermost 14-pointed star polygon is drawn inside of thin and contrast thick circles.  The outside diameter of Mekhala has four lines and they form two green strips and one white (in centre).  Defence square contains four gates, three black line contour and full green edge.

 When you keep a sheet of paper horizontally and turn it a little, polygons seem to become like the mirrors and begin to reflect each other in strange organised order, it looks like a precious diamond game.  Eighteen years of beauty.  Nothing changed in this picture.  Nothing changed in this world.  It’s still beautiful for people to live and love in.

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.
