The Sri-yantra originates from Buddhism and means the “large yantra”.
It a mandala shape. Making a mandala is an exercise of meditation.
The basic shape is that of a temple or palace, with gates to the four quarters of the wind.
The Sri-yantra’s middle is formed by connecting lines to focus the visualized energy during meditation. Around the center there is a lotus flower.
The open lotus flower, the daytime lotus, is the symbol of purity and cleanliness and in Buddhism it is called Padma.
This pattern is a lot of work, but embroidering to me is also a kind of meditation and I loved making it.
Now it is on the wall above our bed.
