Gayatri Mandala Painting
Durga Yantra is a sacred geometrical diagram to invoke and seek blessings from Goddess Durga. It gives strength to overcome difficulties in life and conquer enemies. 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 3 upward triangles represent the masculine aspect of God and one downward triangle represents the feminine aspect. The concentric circles concentrates the consciousness of devotee toward the central point, Bindu, which is the most powerful part of the Yantra and represents the Supreme consciousness or the God, which is Durga in this Yantra.Printed on coated matt paper by inkjet printer, using ultrachrome inks with an off-white paper mounting with golden border, and encased inside a fibre frame with acrylic sheet cover in the front.
The Gayatri Mandala is an ancient spiritual symbol of enlightenment and divine energy. It is an ancient Hindu symbol composed of a powerful, concentric arrangement of deities, deities’ names, radiating energy and shapes and symbols. Its meaning is difficult to describe, but it can be seen as a representation of the universe and of the inner self, the soul, and of the divine.
When painted or drawn, the mandala is traditionally employed as a tool for meditation, introspection, and spiritual enlightenment. Every component of the mandala has a distinct meaning. The largest circle denotes bija, also known as the beginning of cosmic consciousness. The names of the seven primary Hindu deities are listed in the next inner circle, along with symbols that represent their might and divinity. The Gayatri mantra, an aide for spiritual awakening and enlightenment, is kept in the innermost circle.
An powerful visual reminder of our spiritual oneness and kinship with the almighty, the Gayatri Mandala. We are inspired to deepen our self-reflection and enter a peaceful and calm place as we pause to reflect on its great resonance and beauty. We can communicate with our inner selves and the divine energy that resides in each of us in this sacred location.
A potent spiritual instrument that aids in forging a solid and enduring bond with God is the Gayatri Mandala. Simply pause to look at the mandala and consider its significance if you want to connect with this age-old knowledge. We can gradually open ourselves to the potent spiritual forces of this old symbol as we do so, enabling us to improve our understanding of understanding of the divine and of ourselves.
An effective and age-old Hindu prayer, the Gayatri Mantra is thought to give frequent chanters spiritual insight, mental clarity, and peace of mind. Additionally, it is considered to have the ability to drive away bad energy and advance general wellbeing. It is also thought to assist the chanter in succeeding in their pursuits and achieving spiritual enlightenment. Additionally, some people think it may have therapeutic effects and benefit physical health.
