The Sriyantra Totem is a visible and knowable core, a linked diagram of lines by which the visualizable energies are concentrated. There are different types of yantras and Sri Yantra is the Great Yantra. Other lesser yantras (e.g. the Om Yantra and the Kariyatala, etc.) are clearly the parts that embrace Sri Yantra. Yantra can be made into permanent totems from many forms of matter, the most important being the Himalayan crystal. It’s a transparent, colorless matter whose shape can focus light at its apex, and forms a very good symbol for all inclusive substances of basic reality. Just as colorless light can include all possible light colors, so can crystal be used as an analogy of a matter that contains all matters.
This precious Buddhist treasure was made in the ancient town of Patan in Nepal in 2005. After it was activated by Rinpoche, it was placed by the believers in the temple. It was in the temple for more than half a century until the earthquake in Nepal in 2015. To rebuild the temple, it was sold to raise funds which was how it eventually came under the ownership of a Singaporean collector.

The Sri Yantra’s 9 constituent triangles vary in size and shape and intersect to form 43 smaller triangles, organized in 5 concentric levels. Together they represent the totality of the cosmos and express Advaita or non-duality. In the middle, the power point (bindu) represents the cosmic center. The triangles are circumscribed by two concentric circles composed of 8 and 16 petals, representing the lotus of creation and reproductive vital force. The entire configuration is framed by the broken lines of an earth square, representing a temple with four doors open onto the regions of the universe.
