This graphics I created combines the most auspicious and powerful Markandeya mantra (also called Mrityunjaya mantra) and the Shiva Yantra. generally Yantras should not be shown to others …and just kept on sacred altar.. But this is a graphics I grabbed from internet…not an actual metal Yantra…so using it here for educational purposes..Interesting that it actually has a pentagram at the centre..
Yantras are Hindu versions of sacred Geometry …with God names and mantras written on them in Sanskrit and follow certain rules of how to create them.. when to create them..and how to work with them in Poojas and prayers / meditations etc.. In short they take several days or weeks of preparation to `install’ on an altar and thereafter treated as `God’ or `Goddess’.. and never to be handled disrespectfully.. (they are way more serious than just a statue or picture of a Deity.. They *are* Deity..once properly consecrated and installed.
No one should work with them or touch them if they have had meat of any kind.. They should not touch the ground.. They should on;y be handled after a shower.. etc (many such rules).
I have some yantras I obtained years ago..and they are still covered up and awaiting work.. as I am not yet of a certain high spiritual pure state to work with them.. That should tell you how serious this work is..
I’ll be running some key Hindu Magic ceremonies and workshops in late Spring 2019 onwards.. So keep your eyes peeled on this matter.
