Significance of Sri Yantra
Sri Yantra is a circuit showing chakras of the body. The presence of each chakra of the yantra is a symbol of chakra of the human body. The chakras in the body represent superimposition of 4 triangles and 5 triangles in an upward position and downward position respectively. These formation of interlocking of upward and downward triangle lead to the formation of 43 smaller triangles in the Sri Yantra. The downward pointing triangle of Sri Yantra denotes a way of representing Shakti which is the female principle. On the other hand, the triangles pointing upwards are representing Shiva, male principle.
