Bhuvaneshwari Goddess of Sacred Space


Bhuvaneshvari is the goddess of sacred space. She encourages us to make physical and mental space for our desires and dreams. We must mentally and physically clean out a spot, make space for new things to come in, so that the queen of all worlds can give birth to something new. When this space is cultivated and nurtured, Bhuvaneshavari allows for that space to be filled with unconditional love. She embodies the archetypal energy of  the great creator of new life and new beginnings. 


The word yantra in sanskrit means tool, machine or instrument. Yantras are usually geometric diagrams, made of a small dot (bindu) surrounded by circles, triangles, and squares, each having symbolic meaning. These shapes come together to form the pattern of the divine. A yantra is also a visual form of a mantra used to strengthen your focus in meditation.

We will learn the symbology and meaning of the different parts of the Bhuvaneshvari Yantra and how she relates to our own lives. The construction (drawing and painting) of the yantra will take us deeper into the feeling of devotion, meditation and sacredness.

When our yantras are complete we will learn how to use them for daily meditation and take home the tools that help us overcome our obstacles.
