Yantras are mystic diagrams used by people for positive vibrations and the fulfillment of a specific aim. Customarily, yantras are placed near the deities in temples at the altar and at the entrances of homes or worn in the form of a tabeez close to the throat or on the arms. In the southern parts of India, people draw yantras on the floor with multi-hued rangolis during festive times. If you have noticed, the renowned Sri Venkateswara Swamy Temple (Tirupathi) is in the shape of a Sri Yantra. Before we know the types, uses, and benefits of yantras, let’s answer the basic questions: What does Yantra mean? How does it work? Is it beneficial to have it installed at home?
WHAT IS A YANTRA?
Yantra is referred to as ‘Mandalas’, they are geometrical figures, diagrams or symbols that are characterized by simple forms in design and represent Mantras. The literal meaning of Yantra is: “to control, curb, bind or influence”. Yantra in Sanskrit signifies the chant that awakens energy when placed anywhere in the environment around. These Vedic diagrams have stronger astronomical esthetics and are the ultimate reality. They can be inscribed in 3 dimensional forms on a plain surface or used as an amulet or charm. Adi Sankaracharya’s Saundarya Lahiri has done an ascendancy work on Yantra.
There are different types of Yantra made for different purposes. Yantric geometries are three dimensional in their original states but they are characterized as two dimensional when etched or drawn. Vedic literature based on the occult sciences mention different types of Yantra such as Planetary Yantra, Numerological Yantra, Yantra for different Gods and Goddesses and others. Yantra represent a Physical force or a creative energy. Yantra in Sanskrit means the chant that awakens energy when you place it anywhere in the environment around you. This energy is said to cleanse the environment and electrify the atmosphere with positivity.
Shri Yantra is the most powerful amongst all the Yantras. It denotes energies of all Gods and Goddesses and is a representation of your entire Life which is a Play of Goddess Lalita. It is formed by the nine intertwining triangles that rim and exude out from the central point, the junction point between the material universe and its unmanifest source. Four of the triangles pointing upwards stand for Shiva. Five of these triangles pointing downwards stand for Shakti. It is a Yantra that takes you to your life purpose. All the divine architecture such as temples are based on this Yantra.
The Vedas state that a Yantra works in tune with the cosmological order. The geometrical shape of a Yantra produces a subtle cosmic force matching the invoked energy. When you chant a Vedic mantra dedicated to a Yantra, the layers of energy in the microcosm vibrate on the same wavelength with the corresponding energy current in the macrocosm. For instance, if you chant ‘Om Namah Shivay’ in front of an energized Shiva Yantra or Mahamrityunjaya Yantra (Deity Yantra), the Shiva Tattva (atomic elements connected with Lord Shiva) get charged up and you experience a meditative state within yourself. Therefore, Yantra are purely based on the Vedic science working as per the cosmological order.
Take any Yantra, you will always find the core components: bindu (dot), trikona (triangle), chakra (circle), shatkona (six-pointed star), bhupura (square) and Padma (divine lotus).
It indicates the energy and its extreme concentration at the center. It is also called the center of cosmic radiation. Bounded by different surfaces such as a triangle, a hexagon, a circle, the bindu represents the union with the force or creative energy ruling the yantra.
It is the emblem of Shakti, the absolute female energy of the Divine. It completes the creation or manifestation of both, material as well as spiritual worlds. The triangle pointing down characterizes the Yoni which is the source of all creations. Pointing upwards signifies forceful spiritual desire, the transferal of one’s nature into the subtler sphere and the Fire Element because Agni always burns upwards. A triangle pointing downwards represents the Water Element for water flows down. Fire Element represents Shiva and Water Element represents Shakti.
It is an archetypal amalgamation of two triangles structured in all the Yantra. It characteristically signifies the divine unification of Shiva (Male energy) and Shakti (Female energy) which is the cause of all creation.
It stands for rotation which is central to the functioning of the macrocosmic progression. At the same time, the circle signifies perfection and the peaceful creative void of the Vishudha chakra. In the series of the five fundamental elements it represents the Air Element.
it represents the Earth Element that resides in the physical self. Yantra start with the dot and end with the square. It implies the way the cosmos evolves. It begins with the subtle energies at the centre, with granular at ether and then culminating in earth.
All the Vedic scriptures as well as the scriptures of other faiths consider lotus to be the divine emblem of purity that resides in the chakras. A lotus in Yantra represents the unconditional force of the Supreme Absolute Truth. The lotus serves as a divine seat for devas (gods). It also represents detachment. It grows in the mud but never touches even a tinge of mud, representing detachment to the external forces (material world) and maintaining the original nature which is pure and divine.
Yantras are the best substitutes for mantras to gain positive energy and get rid of the malefic effects of unfavorably placed planets. Some people are unable to chant mantras with correct pronunciation; a yantra is the solution for them. They create a distinctive but intangible atmosphere that is full of positivity and positive vibrations. The vibrations generated get us in contact with spiritual energies that enhance the soul from within. It increases the intensity of prayers and makes the thoughts stronger and more influential. The powers of a Yantra thrive on the reverberation of cosmic energies. When you concentrate on the center of a Yantra, your mind is pitched into the creative force associated with the yantra in question, and energy flows. Your wish and intention of prosperity and affluence along with a Yantra, say Kuber Yantra, is bound to yield more fruitful results as compared to an intention with the same wishes devoid of Kuber Yantra.
Thus, you may use a Yantra in the following ways:
You may meditate on the yantra to achieve resonance with the divine energy ruling the yantra. You may put it on your desk, wall, altar, or near the entrance. You may even put it in your vehicle. It creates a force field and charges the environment. You may wear it as a pendant, bracelet, ring or tabeez on your body. You may even carry the Yantra with you in your wallet (make sure that the wallet is not made of leather). The vibrations of the Yantra will create an aura of positive energy around you.
Yes. It does. Placing an energized Yantra in the appropriate direction influences one’s emotional, psychic, and bodily well-being. The core strength of a Yantra is that it energizes the subtle energy centres called chakras. All the chakras are ruled by a particular deity. For example, the Sahasrara Chakra is ruled by Lord Shiva. Worshipping a Mahamrityunjaya Yantra and meditating on the same gradually energizes this Chakra. An energized Sahasrara Chakra helps you know your place in the universe and see things as they are, making you undisturbed amid setbacks, failures, and general life problems. Yantra is best placed in the north-east part of the house as it is a confluence of positive energies coming from the geometric lines in the north and the rising sun in the east. However, if the north-east part is not convenient, then it is best to place them closer to you on your desk, on a wall or near the entrance door. Some Yantras offer results instantly if the karmic potential is ripe. Some offer results gradually over a long period of time. Yantra for wealth and affluence requires patience. For instance, Kuber Yantra works better after the first year. Yantra is also exceedingly helpful for health and averting accidents and mishaps.
Yantra are drawn on metals; they can be in Silver, Gold, Copper and Bhojpatra. Yantra, besides fulfilling their fundamental purpose, helps prosper in career along with good health, wealth, happiness and success. Yantra on the basis of their significance can be divided into following categories:
Yantra of the Great Mother or the Mahavidyas ‘Sources of supreme knowledge’ comes under deity Yantra. Most substantial of them all is Shakti Yantra.
Yantra that are used to harness the energies of the nine planets and are that of astrological significance comes under this category.
Yantra that are used for the purpose of realty business success or to get rid of Vastu Dosha comes under the category of Architectural Yantra.
There are different Yantra for different purpose. One must be fully aware of the most appropriate Yantra for wish fulfillment and must check if they are worshipper of a particular God/Goddess before buying the Yantra. For instance, if one worships Goddess Ganesha, Ganesha Yantra can be highly beneficial and give faster results.
Similarly purpose wise, Bagalamukhi or Navagraha Yantra should be used if one is suffering from a disease or going through a court trial or facing any other monetary problem at professional or social front.
If one is facing unknown obstacles, using a Yantra as per the malefic planet in the birth chart helps get rid of them.
I would like to share my 9+13 mukhi bracelet ( all Nepalese) experience with you. I started wearing this bracelet few months back as per your suggestions; it is very hard to believe but in few weeks the power I feel is amazing. I found a lot of changes in my life especially at work. People started recognizing my work and efforts. I got a salary increase as well. It is hard to believe but I literally felt whatever is happening; I was not playing any role in it; there was a power that was making. It happened. After that divine and unusual experience; I saved every single penny and just bought sixteen & seventeen mukhi Nepalese Rudraksha. I personally believe; every single human being should have Rudraksha , I don’t know what good karma I did in the past so that these divine beads came to my life , also I associated with Rudra centre in order to get the beads where I got genuine beads from.
I know I am not supposed to sleep with malas, but I am so attached to them that I cannot bear to take them off! I do not use chemicals when I bath, so they are not harmed while being on me. I slept like a baby the rest of the night! It is true that small Java beads are powerful. It is true that you bless them before you send them out. I am a witness! I am glad to say that, after over a quarter century of effort, I am finally free of meat , alcohol and all other impurities. I thank that in part to the power of the Rudraksha. I am also initiated in the Sanatana Dharma. Thanks to you in part, I can say I am full yogi! I would not been able to do this without the Grace of Deity and your services. Keep up the good work! Never compromise your quality! People in the kali Yuga need your services! It is hard to follow the dharma in the land of the Assurs! We need all the help we can get!!!
It is amazing how powerful they work! Already a few days after wearing the bracelet and the mala, I could stop taking painkillers for the artroisis and sclerosis in my knees! Pain was not explicit anymore…and I could walk much easier. Now, a few weeks later, I don’t have the pain at all!!! This is remarkable!
Based on your suggestions, on March 28, 2012 I procured 6,8,10,17 mukhi and Gauri Shankar rudraksha from healing matrix office in Bangalore. After wearing these rudraksha beads for 20 days, the results were amazing. These holy beads had a great positive influence on my physical and mental conditions. Being impressed, I voluntarily opted for 19 and 13 mukhi rukraksha beads also. Readers of this testimonial can reach me (email@example.com) for any clarifications.
Since long I couldn’t come to the healing matrix, the place to take happiness from. I have taken few Rudraksha beads from you and the result is so amazing…….Perhaps no body have seen such changes in his/her life. Things are happening as per my wish. It is beautiful. These beads have magic power. I am getting what ever I wish and willing to have.
I started wearing the Rudraksha bracelet you recommended along with the wisdom pendant. I have only worn them for a week and I notice such great changes. I feel more confident, and my negative thoughts have reduced.
Rudraksha is a Magical Bead, when energised through proper rituals, and when worn in right places. Belief is the pre-requisite for the changes to happen quickly. When the change start to happen, acceptance is the key, My personal experience after wearing the rudkarsha is something extra-ordinary, I feel that every HUMAN BEING should and must wear rudraksha. I thank NEETA ji and her team for taking RUDRAKSHA SCIENCE to a new level. I prefer rudrakshas from healing matrix, because of their true nature to help and also their involvement toward rudraksha.
Since I started wearing my both bracelets, am feeling very positive and happy. My body pain has lessened too. Also my son Shrikrishna’s attitude toward life changing and confident about himself. His is more clear about his own decisions without consulting anybody. I know this is happening by wearing those powerful rudraksha.
Fyi – you had recommended for me to wear Kalapvriksha combination and Supreme Kavacham (both I am wearing since November 2011). It took about 3 months for these beads to tune into my chakras, and they are making a profound difference in my though process and daily life. Many people just won’t believe these if I were to tell them.
I have all the rudrakshas from 1 mukhi Java to 18 mukhi (nepal and java) from Rudra Centre and they work miraculously when it comes to chakra balancing and wealth opportunities. My wife who is an MD Cardiologist with Fortis and Holyspirit hospital in Mumbai has also benefitted from the One mukhi java and the career success mala. From my personal experience, though I wear a diamond ring, a pearl ring a Yellow Sapphire ring, I feel only wearing rudraksha beads give me much more peace and comfort and enhances my aura.
Thanks for your Rudraksha recommendations. Rudrakshas have started working now. They are showing positive effects. What surprises me is that I took Java beads because of budget and even they healed my legs and back problem. I am convinced of their power now.
My mind is very clear, I am more aware, I have a lot of energy and I feel very balanced , I understand more , I learn quickly, I feel more attractive, I make others feel good doing so, good things come to me, I am full of ideas and inspiration, I am able to take time and be patient , anger seems a fairy tale now…..must go on?
I have been wearing my beads, something happened to me that hasn’t happened to me in years. I started my menses and I had no pain, indigestion. Heaches and moodiness. I actually had energy and clear thought and was pain-free. Thank you for recommendation, Actually had energy and clear thought and was pain-free. THANK YOU for the recommendation.
“I have tried to balance my chakra’s in the past on my own, but I was not very successful..!.. I am so pleased! I can honestly say that I have not felt so good for years….”
“I felt at one with the universe, while at the same time realizing that my body for the first time in years was working to full potential. Thank to your Rudraksha recommendations!...”
"Whenever I feel down, stressed out. or tired for no reason, I just put on the Rudraksha. This stuff work!! I am grateful….”
“ Rudraksha beads have helped me recover from severe migraines. Your recommendations have helped me discover Joy and Purpose in life.”
Subject: Rudraksha beads are part of my secret to success If you have seen any photos of me, or seen me on television or in movies, you most likely saw me wearing a string of beads. Those beads are part of my secret to success. They not only help me look cool, but they are gems infused with power, and help assist me in attracting what I want. Even if you think this a placebo and it is all in my mind, is not it you mind where *everything* actually takes place? It was put together in a precise, scientific ways, by Neeta Singhal.

Rudraksha benefic effect on my 5 yearold daughter is instantaneous, she focuses on task at a time, spend more time with study & her retention is amazing. She is able to sleep on time & wakes up cheerfully ….. although she asks me are these dried seeds or dried grapes. Thank God, she has decided to only wear them & not taste them. At night I put them under her pillow & tell her that this is her friend, you call them Bal Ganesha, Bal Hanuman , Bal Krishna anything you like.
I would like to inform you about the amazing results that I just received aura by your recommendations. It has been two months now. That I have a aura reading with you and you had recommended me to wear my indra mala the ek mukhi by my throat and along with 2.57 ceylone blue sapphire that you also recommend that’s also to wear with my diamond ring. I just got a financial gain as a paid in home caregiver for my mom. I got bump up over half of what I was paid. I also want to thank Lord Shiva and his powerful powerful Rudraksha. I love Hinduism religion. I am not hindu but I really love to worship Lord Shiva. Thank You Thank you again.
Subject: Rudraksha bead cured my skin complaint it just suddenly gone. I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for us! I have also been wearing my Rudraksha bead since it has arrived, and it has cured my skin complaint! It just suddenly gone!!!! Also my well-being has greatly improved…. I have felt the effects!!!!
I should mention that it was by Lord Shiva’s blessings, I came across your site and got the opportunity to wear the authentic, powerful rudrakshas, whose effects are almost instant. I had been going through a myriad of health issues for the last several years and often times been depressed so much with zero interest & vigour in life. I don’t have words to express my gratitude to the Lord, yourself, your colleagues and your wonderful business, which in my opinion is not just business but it is a service to community.
