Sun Yantra – the sacred geometrical diagram to invoke Sun God, Surya.
Sun Yantra is a sacred geometrical diagram to invoke and seek blessings from Sun God, Surya. It improves the worshipper’s leadership and administrative skills and bestows good health. The Yantra is contained in a Bhupur (a square with 4 T-shaped doors), the doors give access to the Yantra. Inside the Bhupur are two concentric circles, the outer circle circumference has 16 lotus petals, known as Sarva Aasa Paripurak (fufilment of all desires), and inner circle circumference has 8 lotus petals, which is known as Sarva Sankshobahan (dissolution of all agitation). The six pointed star is a unique combination of upward and downward triangle which represents the union of male and female aspect of God. At the centre of the six pointed star is the central point, Bindu, which is the most powerful part of the Yantra and represents the Supreme consciousness or the God, which is Sun God Surya in this Yantra.
