Sri Yantra, the Holographic Universe !
From the central dot, the Bindu, symbolic of the Absolute Self, rises the holographic universe. Sri Yantra is a Master Plan of Manifestation.
The digits 15 and 16, called Pancha Dasa and Shodasadasa have sacred significance in Sacred Geometry.
When the Moon is within 12 degrees of the Sun, it is called a Lunation, Prathama. Moon creates 15 lunations. Lunation is called in Sanskrit as a Thithi . These are known as the 15 Kalas of the Moon. There is the 16th Kala and that is Transcendence !
Corresponding to the 15 Kalas, there is the Panchadasa Mantra, a mantra made of 15 letters.
"Ka E i La Hreem - Ha Sa Ka Ha La Hreem - Sa Ka La Hreem"
This is the main mantra of the Sri Yantra.
This is the greatest symbol
Of all symbols divine
Made up of letters fifteen
With Transcendence as the Sixteenth
The greatest emblem of Deity
Worshipped by mystics divine
The greatest hidden mystery
I take refuge in Thy symbol
Thy divine symbol, O Mother Divine !
