The Sri Yantra or Shree Yantra which is considered prime most among all the mandalas is a complex multi triangular cosmic grid. Sri Yantra mandala is formed by nine interlocking triangles surrounding the center point. Together the nine triangles are interlaced in such a way as to form 43 smaller triangles in a web symbolic of the entire cosmos or a womb symbolic of creation. Sri Yantra mandala is also used as a good luck symbol and believed to usher in good luck and prosperity.

Making Use of the Pictures
It takes a lot of effort to do so, and we rarely get a chance to stop during the day and regenerate. When evening comes, our mind is filled with contradicting images, unsorted facts and a kaleidoscope of memories and ideas. Our entire nervous system is stimulated to distraction and even our bodies are charged with stress chemicals caused by runaway emotions and sensations. It is no wonder that we often end our day fatigued, stressed and unhappy. We get back home yearning peace, hoping to relax, but even the familiar surrounding isn’t enough to quiet our abused senses.
In Sanskrit, ”Mandala” means ”circle”. It is not the shape of a circle, but the symbol of completeness. It reminds us that our mind, body and the world beyond are interconnected.
If you’ve ever kept a diary, you know how therapeutic the experience can be. There’s something really wonderful about being able to go back and see the changes over time as you grew as a person, and the act itself is healing. Did you know that you can do journaling using mandala drawings too? Or, try out some mandala coloring books. Jung was famous for doing a mandala journal where he kept many mandalas and they would later influence his understanding of psychology. Jung believed that the mandala was a symbol of the whole Self, and that the various stages of individuation could also be read within the symbol of the mandala.
