God and His energy are inseparable; the concept of the power and the powerful comes to the forefront once again, and it is so apt while describing the significance of the Shree Yantra. The geometrical pattern of this Yantra is explanation in itself. Its design is based on intersection of nine triangles. Four of these triangles point upward and five downward. The four upward pointing triangles are the Shiva triangle (Male or Yang forces) and five downward pointing triangles are Shakti or Durga triangles (female or Yin forces). A combination of these nine triangles makes Shree Yantra the most dynamic of all Yantra, and the complete symbol of the power and the powerful.
The ancient scriptures of Brihadaranyaka Upanishad says
“He was alone, he did not enjoy, one alone does not enjoy, He desired a second, and became like a man and woman in close embrace.”
This is the concept of the Shree Yantra, a uniting and harmonizing device where the male and female energy is taken into the higher level of desire and union.
