Sri yantra is called the mother of all yantras because all other yantras derive from it. The Sri Yantra is a configuration of nine interlacing triangles centred around the bindu (the central point of the yantra), drawn by the super imposition of five downward pointing triangles, representing Shakti ; the female principle and four upright triangles, representing Shiva ; the male principle. Man's spiritual journey from the stage of material existence to ultimate enlightenment is mapped on the Sri Yantra. The spiritual journey is taken as a pilgrimage in which every step is an ascent to the center, a movement beyond one's limited existence, and every level is nearer to the goal. Each of the circuits of the Sri Yantra, from the outer plane to the bindu (the center), corresponds with one of the stages of the spiritual journey. The goal of contemplating the Sri Yantra is that the adept can rediscover his primordial sources.

Care Tips for Gold Plated Yantras and Jewelry: Caring for gold plated Yantras and jewelry is very similar to caring for solid gold. The only exception is you really have to be more careful when it comes to cleaning. We recommend you use a clean soft cloth when cleaning. At all times, avoid abrasive cleaning materials. The chemical used in these cleaners is just too harsh and may result in the lost of its color and tarnish. In some cases, the chemical may actually remove gold plated layer. If you are wearing a gold plated jewelry, make sure to take them off before you wash your hands or when doing any physical activities i.e. cleaning. To extend its life usage, we recommend making sure you put your jewelry on after all sprays and perfumes. If you are wearing a pendant make sure you take them off before applying on body lotion or body oils (make sure it is fully absorbed before putting jewelry back on). Clean your jewelry with warm, soapy water.
