Shakti in the Hindu concept is the active and dynamic principal of feminine power sometimes referred to as the Divine Mother. Shakti is the mother goddess, the source of all, the universal principal of energy, power or creativity.
The Sri Yantra, or Yantra of Creation, is one of the most powerful and dynamic of all Yantras. Worship of the Sri Yantra bestows peace, prosperity, power, protection, health, wealth, courage, bliss, wisdom and Divine Grace upon you. Sri Yantra takes away all kinds of physical, mental or spiritual ailments.
The Sri Yantra is constructed of nine intersecting triangles. The five pointing upward represent Shiva, the male energy, and the four pointing downward represent Shakti, the female energy. The upward triangles represent fire and the downward triangles represent water. Here the male and female and the fire and water overlap and unite and become one. The beautiful Yantra is encased in lotus petals symbolizing a fulfilling of hopes and materialization of expectations.
