The Yantra is contained in a Bhupur (a square with 4 T-shaped doors), the doors give access to the Yantra. The eight lotus petals represent 5 elements – Air, Fire, Water, Earth, and Sky, and 3 Gunas (vitrues) – Sattva (goodness), Rajas (passion) and Tamas (chaos). The upward triangle represents the masculine aspect of God and 8 downward triangles represent the feminine aspect. At the centre is the central point, Bindu, which is the most powerful part of the Yantra and represents the Supreme consciousness or the God, which is planet Mars (Mangal).
