The invisible image
As this sound is vibrated, a pattern is created called the Sri Yantra:
The Sri Yantra, or Yantra of Creation, blossoms as the ATUM sound is intoned. The word yantra means “geometric mantra” and it is sometimes known as a power diagram. A yantra is really a lotus that a mantra creates. In modern times, we can find these universal patterns in pursuits like cymatics:
The Sri Yantra is an ancient symbol and also considered the mother of all yantras. Each yantra design contains a “dot” from which geometric shapes and designs radiate. Traditionally, such symbols are used to balance the left and right aspects of the brain or to focus on spiritual concepts.
The Sri Yantra is considered to be the vehicle for obtaining all worldly desires and material comforts. The pattern can increase our focus so that we may see our goals clearly. It represents the timeless creative principle of the universe, the continuous unfoldment of all realms of creation from the central Source. With this mindfulness, the dawn of dimension is used as an object of meditation. Indeed, it is the very lotus of love!
The surrounding geometries represent the realms of creation, entirely supported by the creative process. So the Sri Yantra is really the invisible image from the sound of silence: ATUM. The Sri Yantra is also known as the Merkaba, the vehicle for ascension.
