Here’s my new method for drawing the Sri Yantra. The Sri Yantra, also known as the Shri Yantra or Sri Chakra is a diagram that represents the cosmos and the human body. It’s made up of 9 triangles that intersect to form 43 smaller triangles. There are two rings of petals, one with 8 petals and one with 16 petals, they represent the lotus of creation and reproduction. The dot in the middle is called the bindu, the cosmic centre. It’s also framed by a gated square that represents a temple with open doors to the universe.
This method uses sacred geometry, there’s no need for measurements as it all starts with one circle and each line informs the next. Note the Sri Yantra will be twice the size of the diameter of the first circle.
Radius of first circle: 7cm
