What are Yantra Kolam?

 

The Yantra is a spiritual machine weaving intention into the fabric of life. The word Yantra in its ordinary representation stood for a ‘Loom’; the loom that

weaves, threads to cloth, is considered to be the very first ‘Machine’.

Soon the word Yantra became a term known for all Machines, or instruments.

Weaving the cloth of life! In many of the Kolam, plural Kolangul, one can find interlocking ascending or descending Triangles and if the triangle is not visually drawn out within a frame of pulli, the triangle is present in the shape of either the manifested Kolam and, or it is drawn freehand without pulli.

When the Triangles interlock, and create a geometric composition they are called Yantra’s.

Mandala is a circle with its Centre, signifying completeness, wholeness, everything in the universe. In Sanskrit, the word Mandala derives from: ‘Manda’ meaning ‘essence’ and ‘la’; meaning to contain, to hold or to announce. A Mandala is likened to a container that holds the essence of…ANANDA; Bliss..  Mandalas-Kolam are significant for the religious and secular lives of many people in India. A Mandala-Kolam becomes a multidimensional and interactive roadmap to other realms; a visual representation of sacred space and a metaphor of ideal or divine behavior within that space. ‘Where microcosm and macrocosm unite’. The Mandala-Kolam is a depiction of the eye its structure with in its centre the pupil as a black hole, or blind spot. In the Mandala-Kolam it corresponds to the Bindu, centre Pulli or dot!
