Sri Yantra - The Sri Yantra, or Yantra of Creation, represents the OM vibration and has been known in the Hindu and Buddhist traditions since Vedic times, as the most powerful and mystically beautiful of all yantras (visual symbol to balance the mind or focus it on spiritual concepts). It represents the timeless creative principle of the universe, the continuous unfoldment of all realms of creation from the Central Source and, with that mindfulness; it is also used as an object of meditation.
Since very ancient times, it has been believed that God created the entire cosmos according to a specific geometric plan. Sacred Geometry refers to the geometric shapes, patterns, frequencies, proportions, ratios and laws that have been observed to underlie the organic life forms, objects and phenomenon occurring anywhere in the universe.
People have always held the symbols of Sacred Geometry holy and tried to use them to understand the divine truths behind all existence. One of these revered figures is the Metatron’s Cube.
5 Platonic Solids
The Platonic Solids are called the perfect solids because in each of them, every face has equal side length, equal face size and equal angle. Moreover, all these figures fit perfectly within a sphere.
The five Platonic Solids are regarded as the building blocks of the universe and equated with the five elements with which everything is made – fire, earth, air, aether and water.
Star Tetrahedron – Fire The Star Tetrahedron symbolizes the element of Fire. Made of two tetrahedrons (triangular pyramids), the Star Tetrahedron is a sharp figure that corresponds with the sharp and piercing heat of fire. Its uniform shape also makes it symbolic of harmony, equilibrium, stability and balance.
Hexahedron – Earth The Hexahedron represents the element of Earth. It is shaped as a cube and with its regular & straight lines, it is symbolic of solidity and firmness that are the key characteristics of the Earth. Moreover, the Hexahedron sits flat and firmly rooted, just like the earth.
Octahedron – Air The Octahedron is symbolic of the element of Air. The Octahedron has a smooth shape made of eight equilateral triangles which can be equated with the minuscule components of Air that are so smooth that they can hardly be felt.
Dodecahedron – Aether The Dodecahedron is associated with Aether, a unique element of the heavens, sky or space. Aether is regarded as the fifth crucial element that combines with the other four classical elements of fire, earth, air and water to make up everything in the universe.
Icosahedron – Water The Icosahedron is equated with the element of Water. The Icosahedron is made of 20 equilateral triangles and is the Platonic Solid with the maximum number of faces. Its smooth and even figure is seen as an apt symbol for water that smoothly flows away when one attempts to pick it up.
As the five essential elements, the five Platonic Solids are considered very crucial to creation. And, by virtue of having the Platonic Solids encompassed within itself, the Metatron’s Cube becomes a symbol of universal unity and inter-connectedness.
