The Sri Yantra or Sri Chakra is a form of mystical diagram (yantra) used in the Shri Vidya school of Hindu tantra. It consists of nine interlocking triangles that surround a central point known as a bindu. When the two-dimensional Sri Yantra is represented in three dimensions, it is called a Maha Meru. Mount Meru derives its name from this shape. In Hindu mythology, it is believed that the tortoise lifted the weight of the earth on its back. The tortoise is particularly relevant as it is a very powerful, protected being that can live in either water or land. It is also non-violent and Nature has provided it with a strong cover or jacket to protect it from danger. As tortoise is gifted with long life therefore in Vastu Shastra and in Feng Shui it gives Long Life. As in Puranas, Lord Vishnu took the form of tortoise to uphold the earth and its beings during the Sagar Manthan; Lord Vishnu s Tortoise is second avatar and is called as Kurma avatar. Tortoise works as an aid to Vastu correction as it has tremendous power to balance and harmonize the environment around us Care Instructions Detergents and lotions can damage the finishing and colour of the stones / crystals. * Clean with soft 100% cotton.
