*Pythagoras* described geometry as *visual music.* Music is created
by applying laws of frequency and sound in certain ways. States of harmonic resonance are produced
when frequencies are combined in ways that are in unison with universal law.

These same laws can be applied to produce *visual harmony. *Instead
of frequency and sound it is *angle and shape *that are combined in ways that are in
unison with universal law. Geometric shapes can be orchestrated in ways to produce *visual symphonies* that show the harmonic unification of diversity.

*Mandalas* translate complex mathematical expressions into simple shapes
and forms. They show how the basic patterns governing the evolution of life workout the most beautiful results.

The word *mandala* arises from the Sanskrit and means * sacred
circle.* The circle symbolizes the womb of creation; and mandalas are geometric designs
that are made through uniform divisions of the circle. The shapes that are formed from these divisions are symbols that embody the mathematical principles found throughout creation. They reveal the
inner workings of nature and the inherent order of the universe.

*Mandalas* act as a bridge between the higher and lower realms. They are
interdimensional gateways linking human consciousness to the realms of archetypes
and the infinite. The relationship of form, movement, space and time is
evoked by the mandala.

*Mandalas* offer a way to engage with the inherent harmony and balance
of nature. They bring the principles of nature into our field of awareness. For thousands
of years, mandala imagery has served as a means to an expanded way of thinking. The images transcend
language and the rational mind. They bring about a certain wisdom of universal
knowledge and a deeper understanding of human consciousness.

** Yantras** are a particular field of mandala imagery that
visually represent the harmonic tones of

*Sri Yantra* - or *Yantra of Creation* - is the most revered of all the
Hindu yantras. There is a mysterious beauty that arises in the way that
nine diverse triangles interlink to form a state of perfect balance and
harmony, and the complementation of the *yin *and *yang *~ creating
43 smaller triangles that define the Sri Yantra.

The Sri Yantra is believed to be the image of the *OM *mantra,
which in the Hindu tradition is understood to be the primordial sound of
creation. In his book *Rhythms of Vision, *Lawrence Blair writes that
when the OM is correctly intoned into a tonoscope (a device that transforms
sound into a visual representation on a screen), it first produces a circle.
As the tone is completed, the circle is filled sequentially with concentric
squares, triangles and finally, as the last traces of the "mmm"
have died away, the Sri Yantra.

*Sri Yantra Eternal Fire*: Primes the kundalini. For the serious soul
intent on burning through karma and the obstructions to one's spiritual
growth. The spiritual warrior.

*Whirling Squares*: In sacred geometry the circle symbolizes the spiritual plane and the
square symbolizes the material, physical plane. The whirling squares yantra
design portrays the union of spirit and matter. It simultaneously expresses
the spiritualization of matter and the cloaking of spirit.

The *golden ratio*, or it's mathematical term the *phi* ratio is a mathematical
principle that pervades the universe. This principle can be found from
molecules (including the dna molecule) to spiral galaxies. It is a universal
relationship that exists between two elements of an equation in a natural
situation.

In sacred geometry the golden ratio can be expressed in numbers, lengths, shapes and forms, which include golden proportioned triangles, rectangles and spirals. The golden ratio is the golden thread that links all levels of creation. If the emotion of love is the pervading principle of the universe, the golden ratio is the mathematical equation of it.

The golden ratio is also present in the *Sri Yantra.* Pentagram star with radiating spiral. Awakening and metamorphisis. New
beginnings. A link to the universal heart. A key to realms of higher awareness. Pentagram star rainbow with yin and yang spirals forming universal heart.
A nuturing and enriching connection with universal abundance and empathy.
