Yantras – Ancient Tools to gain cosmic energy for worshipper – FAQ’s
Yantra literally means "instrument". A Yantra is a geometric design acting as a highly efficient tool for contemplation, concentration and meditation. Yantras carry spiritual significance, and point the user to higher levels of consciousness. The Yantra provides a focal point that is a window into the absolute. When the mind is concentrated on a single, simple object (in this case a Yantra), the mental distractions ceases. Eventually, the object is dropped when the mind can remain empty and silent without help. In the most advanced phases, it is possible to attain union with God by the geometric visualization of a Yantra.
2. How do Yantras Work ?
At the basis of yantra operation is something called "shape energy" or "form energy". The idea is that every shape emits a very specific frequency and energy pattern. Examples of old believes in shape energy are the yantras and mandalas of eastern philosophies, the star of David, the five pointed star (pentagon), the Christian cross, the pyramids and so on. Certain 'powers' are ascribed to the various shapes. Some have 'evil' or negative energies and some 'good' or positive energy, but in YANTRA only the benefic and harmonious energies are used.
When one focuses on a yantra, his mind is automatically "tuned in" by RESONANCE into the specific form energy of that yantra. The process of RESONANCE is then maintained and amplified. The yantra acts only as a "tune in" mechanism or a doorway. The subtle energy does not come from the yantra itself, but from the MACROCOSM. Basically yantras are described in the vedas as secret keys for establishing RESONANCE with the beneficial energies of the MACROCOSM. Very often the yantras can put us in contact with extremely elevated energies and entities, thereby providing invaluable help on the spiritual path.
3. But I dont see any moving parts or mechanism in it. It's just a piece of metal with some kind of geometrical design on it.
It is similar to the fact that you dont see any frequencies of sight, sound, smell, touch and taste. You dont see gravity, you dont see a magnetic field. Still we are the most affected and controlled by those forces. In the same manner, yantras are big conductors of cosmic energy.
4. How much time does it take to notice positive result ?
It depends on the size of Yantras, material of Yantras & type of yantras. In most normal situations, yantras get fully activated within 40 days of installation and continue to increase energy thereafter.
5. How does it work to help me ?
Yantras have geometrical and mathemetical rhythm of natural forces to attract and absorb cosmic energy. Just like your TV or radio antenna works with the elements for better reception of frequency.
6. I am still confused and skeptic about how a piece of metal can change my life ?
The geometry etched on this metal piece has great power. Each yantra is equivalent in effect to a Sanskrit Mantra as Sanskrit is a unique language of the Gods that can be drawn into a yantra. So placing a yantra gives the potency of that mantra to you and your environment.
7. Does it need to be placed in a certain way ?
Yes, direction of placement makes the impact. Every yantra works only when it is placed in the correct way. This applies to placing deity idols also.
8. Does the size of yantra make any difference ?
Yes, the bigger the yantra the more is the impact. For smaller rooms, small size is sufficient.
9. Can I eat non-vegetarian food and smoke or drink while wearing yantra ?
Yes, you can. Ancient texts do not mention any such taboo associated with yantras.
