The purpose of yantra is to focus on spiritual and mental energies to enhance health, wealth, success, longevity and prosperity. It brings positive energies and eliminates negative energies that can affect one’s health and wealth.
Yantras are usually designed so that the eye is carried into the center, and very often they are symmetrical. Mystic yantras are an amalgam of three principles: the form principle (Akriti-rupa), the function-principle (Kriya-rupa), and the power-principle (Sakti-rupa). Traditionally such symbols are used in Eastern mysticism to balance the mind or focus it on spiritual concepts. The act of wearing, depicting, enacting and/or concentrating on a yantra is held to have spiritual or astrological or magical benefits in the traditions of the Indian religions. The power of Yantras to induce resonance is based on the specific form of its appearance.
These yantras are made up on various objects i.e. alloys, Paper, Precious Stones, Bhoj Patra, Silver, gold and Metal Plates. They can be three-dimensional. It is believed that constantly concentrating on the representation helps to build fortunes, as planets have their peculiar gravity which governs basic emotions and karma. These yantras are often made on a particular date and time according to procedures defined in the Vedas.

Signification of Yantra:
A Yantra alone represents nothing. Only when it is awakened by mental concentration and meditation will the process of resonance appear and the benefic macrocosmic energies will manifest themselves in the practitioner’s microcosm. It can calm and focus the activities of the mind, and by its positive auto-suggestion it has a benefic impact on the health and psychic well-being of a person. The secret key to using Yantras in meditation is resonance. The process of resonance is established by mental focus on the image of the Yantra. As long as the mind is tuned into the specific mood associated to that Yantra, the energy flows, but when the resonance is stopped, the energy disappears.
