Interdimensional Gateways to the Infinite
Pythagoras described geometry as visual music. Music is created by applying laws of frequency
and sound in certain ways. States of harmonic resonance are produced when frequencies are
combined in ways that are in unison with universal law.
These same laws can be applied to produce visual harmony. Instead of frequency and sound ~
it is angle and shape that are combined in ways that are in unison with universal law.
Geometric shapes can be orchestrated in ways to produce visual symphonies
that show the harmonic unification of diversity.
Mandalas translate complex mathematical expressions into simple shapes and forms.
They show how the basic patterns governing the evolution of life work
out the most beautiful results.
The word mandala arises from the Sanskrit and means sacred circle. The circle
symbolizes the womb of creation; and mandalas are geometric designs that
are made through uniform divisions of the circle.
The shapes that are formed from these divisions are symbols that embody the mathematical principles found throughout creation. They reveal the inner workings of nature and the
inherent order of the universe.
Mandalas act as a bridge between the higher and lower realms. They are interdimensional gateways linking human consciousness to the realms of archetypes and the infinite. The relationship of form, movement, space and time is evoked by the mandala.
Mandalas offer a way to engage with the inherent harmony and balance of nature ~ they bring
the principles of nature into our field of awareness. For thousands of years, mandala imagery
has served as a means to an expanded way of thinking. The images transcend language
and the rational mind. They bring about a certain wisdom of universal knowledge
and a deeper understanding of human consciousness.
Yantras are a particular field of mandala imagery that visually represent the harmonic tones of mantras (sacred sounds). By directing our thought patterns to these archetypal planes we invite the essence of these levels to penetrate our minds and thinking. An attunement of individual consciousness with the harmony of universal consciousness develops.
Sri Yantra - or Yantra of Creation - is the most revered of all the Hindu yantras. There is a mysterious beauty that arises in the way that nine diverse triangles interlink to form a state of perfect balance and harmony, and the complementation of the yin and yang ~ creating 43 smaller triangles that define the Sri Yantra.
The Sri Yantra is believed to be the image of the OM mantra, which in the Hindu tradition is understood to be the primordial sound of creation. In his book Rhythms of Vision, Lawrence Blair writes that when the OM is correctly intoned into a tonoscope (a device that transforms sound into a visual representation on a screen), it first produces a circle. As the tone is completed, the circle is filled sequentially with concentric squares, triangles and finally, as the last traces of the "mmm" have died away, the Sri Yantra.
Sri Yantra rainbow. All aspects of the Sri Yantra are colored in the rainbow spectrum. This color composition is suitable for bringing enrichment of color into one's life and can help maintain a balanced chakra system.
Sri Yantra blue radiance. Engenders mental clarity and purity. Peace, serentiy,
oxygenation and awareness.
Sri Yantra purple radiance. The crown chakra connection is nourished with this color composition. Refining intuition, compassion, healing and holiness.
Sri Yantra primal glow. Facilitates transformation, transmutation, consuming negative dross like the mythical Phoneix and ascending from the embers.
Sri Yantra night sky. For reaching the inner recesses of the consciousness and drawing forth one's full potential.. Creativity, originality, philosophical realms.
Sri Yantra eternal fire. Primes the kundalini. For the serious soul intent on burning through karma and the obstructions to one's spiritual growth. The spiritual warrior.
In sacred geometry the circle symbolizes the spiritual plane and the square symbolizes the material, physical plane. The whirling squares yantra design portrays the union of spirit and matter. It simultaneously expresses the spiritualization of matter and the cloaking of spirit.
Whirling squares rainbow glow. Each spiral of squares represents one-twelth of the rainbow color spectrum. Each square begins with a radiant white light at the center diffusing into it's respective color. An all-round balancing and maintenance composition to support a harmonious union of body and soul.
Whirling sqaures rainbow blend. Each individual square contains the entire color spectrum within it, in a slightly angled blend. Like the design above, it has an all-round enriching quality that feeds the soul and stabilizes the union of the physical and the ethereal.
Whirling squares violet/purple glow. Each square begins with a radiant white sphere at
the center, diffusing to a scintillating violet/purple hue. Promotes physical and spiritual empowerment.
Whirling squares magenta blend. Each square has an arched blend of crimson, magenta, rosette, indigo and violet to create a radiating cauldron of spiraling squares. Mental clarity and heartful universal empathy.
Whirling squares red-violet rainbow arch. Fertility, preservation, nuturing, soothing, feminine.
Whirling squares violet-red rainbow arch. Potency, radiance, projective, masculine.
The Golden Ratio
The golden ratio, or it's mathematical term the phi ratio is a mathematical principle that pervades the universe. This principle can be found from molecules (including the dna molecule) to spiral galaxies. It is a universal relationship that exists between two elements of an equation in a natural situation.
In sacred geometry the golden ratio can be expressed in numbers, lengths, shapes and forms, which include golden proportioned
triangles, rectangles and spirals.
The images ALA and ALB are embodiments of the golden ratio. They contain three kinds of golden proportioned triangles and golden proportioned spirals.
The golden ratio is the golden thread that links all levels of creation. If the emotion of love is the pervading principle of the universe, the golden ratio is the mathematical equation of it.
NB. The golden ratio is also present in the Sri Yantra.

The swirling.. The primal division of Oneness into many. Sustenance and fortitude. Nuturing. Wholesome. Heartful.
Personalized Sri Yantra
Sri Yantra Voice Portrait
Every sound frequency has an associative color. When the frequency of your voice is converted to it's corresponding color and mathematically applied to the triangles that compose the Sri Yantra.... a beautiful composition of colors personal to you results.
The effect is a transcendental art-form, your individualized expression of the Yantra of Creation which can be used to take you to higher states of consciousness.
