Gayatri 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. Gayatri is a Vedic poetic meter of twenty-four syllables or any hymn composed in this meter. Hence, there exists a whole family of Gayatri Mantras, all of which serve as meditative aids. The yantra is the visual counterpart for this family of mantras. The meaning of the most well-known Gayatrai mantra is: ““Let me meditate on the most adored Lord and Creator, whose divine light illumines all realms (physical, mental and spiritual). May this divine light illuminate my life!” This beautiful illustration was created for the book Vocal Medicine by Kathleen Karlsen. Original pen and ink drawing by Rose Karlsen.
