Shri Chakra (Shri Yantra)
Tripur Sundari is the third among Mahavidyas. She is also called Shri Vidya. According to “Sanskrit Kaustub Dictionary “the meaning of “Shri” is wealth, property given by the Govt., fame, higher position, beauty, glamour, and goddess of wealth “Lakshmi” etc. Nobody on earth would ever like himself not to be blessed by goddess and it is only a few lucky people who know to invoke the goddess blessings. We can also say that Shri Chakra means the `Wheel of the Mother Goddess’ but actually, it represents the symbolic energy form of the Goddess.

From time immemorial, our holy saints have done a lot of research work on it and found ways and means to welcome Shri to the homes of her disciples. The sages transferred this art to their disciples which was stored in our old classics in the form of Yantra, Tantra, and Mantra.

Precaution for Shri Chakra
If Shri Chakra is defaced, broken, not being worshipped properly, stolen or lost, comes under the foot of some undesirable animals or birds, placed on the back of such animals, dropped at some inauspicious place, or worshipped with some wrong mantras or touched by some disgraced person then the yantra should be removed from the installed place. The person is advised to keep fast for a day honestly, recite the Shri Vidya Sukta for one hundred thousand times, perform homa for one tenth part of the mantra, offer food to Brahmins, Gurus, or persons enjoying equal status, persons having knowledge in the field of Yantras and mantras.

If the lines of Shri Chakra have become dim in course of times or some inauspicious things have fallen over it then it would certainly give its malefic effect. If a insane person willfully defaces it then he/she have to face dire consequences. In this case the person is advised to throw it in the river at any pilgrim centre or sea.

How to draw Shri Chakra
In the Malaarnava it is said that the metal on which the Shri Chakra is drawn be touched with fire. After that the surface of the metal on which side the yantra is to drawn be prepared.

In Saundriya lahari’s first Part `Aanand lahri written by Adi Guru Shankracharya in which it was said that the angles of your feet are transformed into four angles related to Shiva and five angles related to Shakti, which are distinct from those of Shiva, and thus into the nine primary forms of matter, as well as into forty-three angles, eight-petals, sixteen-sides, three-folds and three-lines.
