Ganesha Yantra Print with 8x10” Mat (Black and White)

  • A yantra is a symbolic representation of a deity. Yantras can be invested with energy: yantras are activated by the use of mantras. The combination of mantra and yantra creates an energy field for a specific purpose. Yantras are a form of sacred geometry.The Ganesha Yantra utilizes many of the same basic shapes as the Sri Yantra. The six-pointed star is a simplified version of the nine interlocking triangles of the Sri Yantra. The mantra associated with this symbol is: “Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha” and means “Salutations to the remover of obstacles!”  Ganesha is the master of both inner and outer journeys. Ganesha is known for knowledge, patience, preparation and grounding. The sheer weight of an elephant is a wonderful  metaphor for the earth-based energy necessary for successful projects and endeavors. The energy of Ganesha can form a strong foundation for a new business, for example. Ganesha can help to clear away uncertainty and self-doubt. The six-pointed star symbolizes balance and harmony. Ganesha is the patron of the arts, crafts and sculpture. This beautiful illustration was created for the book Vocal Medicine by Kathleen Karlsen. Original pen and ink drawing by Rose Karlsen.
