How to meditate using a Yantra
1. Hang the YANTRA on a wall facing North or East, placing the center of the YANTRA at the level of your eyes, you may use your phone/tablet, VR-Glasses, or simply print the YANTRA.
2. Adopt your favorite posture or, if you want, sit on a chair maintaining your spine straight
Breath in through the nose and out through the mouth, but do not force at all, just let the breath flow normally
3. Look into the center of the YANTRA, trying to blink as rarely as possible; you don’t want to look at the particular details of the YANTRA, just keep your sight right in the center and observe the whole YANTRA at once
4. This exercise should last at least 15-30 minutes every day; the experience will be indescribable
5. In time, after at least seven days of YANTRA meditation you will be able to tap into the same yantric energy even without a YANTRA (at the beginning you may fix your sight on an exterior or imaginary point or evoke the YANTRA with your eyes closed)
6. Do not forget to consecrate the fruits of this practice to God (karma yoga); you should not chase any objective when doing YANTRA meditation, just let it gradually guide you towards the sublime energies of the MACROCOSM
7. When executing this techniques it is recommended that we maintain a state of aspiration and intense longing for experiencing the beatific energies of the consciousness
8. In superior phases the YANTRA absorbs the practitioner’s complete attention, and he can no longer tell if the YANTRA is within himself or if he is within the YANTRA; this is the state of nonduality.
More about YANTRA and its power
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 chatter 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.
The YANTRA is like a microcosmic picture of the MACROCOSM. It is a focusing point and an outer and inner doorway. The YANTRAS are often focused on a specific deity and so. by tuning into the different YANTRAS you can tap into certain deities or creative force centers in the universe.
YANTRAS are usually designed so that the eye is carried into the center, and very often they are symmetrical. They can be drawn on paper, wood, metal, or earth, or they can be three-dimensional.
The most celebrated YANTRA in India is the Sri YANTRA, the YANTRA of Tripura Sundari. It is a symbol of the entire cosmos that serves to remind the practitioner of the nondifference between subject and object.
