Shree Yantra, also known as Shree Chakra, is called the mother of all yantras because all other yantras are derived from it. In its 3 dimensional form Shree Yantra is said to represent Mount Meru
, the cosmic mountain at the center of the Universe. This Yantra
is conceived as a place of spiritual pilgrimage. It is a representation of the cosmos at the macrocosmic level and of the human body at the microcosmic level.
Diagram of Shree Yantra
Shree Yantra is a configuration of 9 interlocking triangles, surrounded by 2 circles of Lotus
petals with the whole encased within a gated frame, called the earth citadel. The 9 interlocking triangles centered on the Bindu or the central point of the yantra are drawn by the superimposition of 5 downward pointing triangles, representing Shakti
; the female principle and 4 upright triangles, representing Shiva
; the male principle. The 9 interlocking triangles form 43 small triangles each housing a presiding deity associated with particular aspects of existence.
Mans spiritual journey from the stage of material existence to ultimate enlightenment is mapped on the Shree Yantra. The spiritual journey is taken as a pilgrimage in which every step is an ascent to the center, a movement beyond ones limited existence, and every level is nearer to the goal. Such a journey is mapped in stages, and each of these stages corresponds with one of the circuits of which the Sree Yantra is composed from the outer plane to the Bindu in the center.

Power of Shree Yantra
Shree Yantra is a tool to give a vision of the totality of existence, so that the adept may internalize its symbols for the ultimate realization of his unity with the cosmos. The circuits symbolically indicate the successive phases in the process of becoming.
Shree Yantra has that unexplained power to fulfill all the wishes and change life for the better. Any person using Shree Yantra achieves much greater affluence, peace and harmony.
