Many of you may have noticed that the symbol we use to represent Panendeism has changed. I consider this new symbol to be remarkably apropos for our science based spirituality. This new symbol is the ancient Hindu symbol of Sri Yantra.
Sri Yantra symbolically represents the goddess in her form of Shri Lalita or Tripura Sundari, "the beauty of the three worlds" (Bhoo, Bhuva and Swa). Four isosceles triangles with the apices upwards, symbolically representing Shiva or the Masculine. Five isosceles triangles with the apices downward, symbolizing female embodiment Shakti. Thus the Sri Yantra elegantly represents the union of both Masculine and Feminine, logic and intuition. Because it is composed of nine triangles, it is also known as the Navayoni Chakra.
The symbol represents the balance of masculine and feminine divinity and in the middle is the point of power (bindu), visualizing the highest, the invisible, elusive center from which the entire figure and the cosmos expand. The triangles are enclosed by two rows of (8 and 16) petals, representing the lotus of creation and reproductive vital force. The broken lines of the outer frame denote the figure to be a sanctuary with four openings to the regions of the universe"
Together the nine triangles are interlaced in such a way as to form 43 smaller triangles in a web symbolic of the entire cosmos or a womb symbolic of creation. Together they express Advaita or non-duality. This is surrounded by a lotus of eight petals, a lotus of sixteen petals, and an earth square resembling a temple with four doors.
