It is said to be the road map to enlightenment as each step represents a movement beyond one’s limited existence toward the bindu at the center. Each circuit corresponds to one of the seven chakras in the body. Five downward facing triangles represent Shakti the four upright represent Shiva. Together they form 43 smaller triangles that represent different aspects of existence and the path moves from the most complex to the most subtle state of being. It’s considered the mother of all yantras because it is from the Sri Yantra that all others are derived.
