What is a Sun Yantra?
A sun yantra is simply another contemplative tool in our signs and symbols toolbox.
A yantra combines both the concept of mandala and mantra. It is a visual mantra, actually. A yantra embodies the sound of god in a visual symbol or icon. It commonly is a geometric representation of the goddess or devi in Hindu wisdom.
When focused upon, the sun yantra can bring about enriching transformation, and faciliate a desired level of consciousness. Sun yantra's combine the embulient energy of the sun and in the form of a yantra, an invitation is created to draw awareness into solar warmth, healing and energy.

The sun carries with it incredible power, and it's just waiting for you to utilize what it has to offer.
