Yanthra can be considered as the symbolic form of the immeasurable divine power of holy chants (manthras). It is the symbolized version of the deity of worship it self. The power of the deity fills the whole universe. But one can become one with the deity by wearing the yanthra or by proper upasana ( deeply dedicated meditation and offerings) Inscribing mantrik symbols and letter, bringing in divinity through constant chanting of manthras and offerings, yantra is prepared fit for installation or wearing.

Usually, in offerings in accordance with Thanthrik system, divine power of the deity is brought in and installed on ‘Padmas’. Padmas with natural colour powders have different ‘mandalas’ and drawings on them. Yanthras are of similar nature with a few exceptions. They are generally drawn on gold, silver or copper sheets. Colours are avoided. As in Padmas straight lines, circles, triangles and rectangles are drawn but on metallic sheets. A perfect yanthra includes ten organs namely.

1. Jeevan

6. Yanthra gayathri

2. Pranan

7. Manthra gayathri


8.Prana Prathishta


9.Bhootha beejam

5. Shrothram

10.Dikpala beejam

An yanthra can not attain its intended divine power merely through correct geometric inscription. It should be made divine in different stages. ‘Punyaha sudhi’ is the first process. ‘Saparivara pooja’ is the second phase for that ‘Prana prathishta manthram’ and charectric manthra of that particular yanthra must be chanted touching the yanthra. Yanthra can be worn only after finishing these process of preparation. Protection (raksha) , realisation of aim (karyasadhyam), destruction (nigraham) , recovery from illness (rogashamanam), stoppage of certain activity, (sthambhanam) Acquirement of something (aakarshanam) , get avoiding something (vidveshanam), driving away of evil forces (uchadanam), get the admiration, attraction, respect, approval etc. of some person (vashyam) are the objectives of yanthra wearing. Nigraham, Sthambhanam and Vidveshanam are ofcourse negative ends and so noble thantrik practitioner do not prepare yanthras of such nature.
