- Jyotish teaches us how to create horoscopes and use
the positions of celestial bodies to
understand and interpret Human existence on
Earth. Of course, to believe, or not believe
in astrology is the prerogative of every
thinking individual and just as in the case
of other disciplines, in astrology too,
there are those practitioners who are
proficient in their area of expertise and
those that need to hone their skills.
Science and astrology are based on two
diametrically opposite points of view.
science makes new discoveries about the
Cosmos, while the knowledge that gives us
(Vedic) astrology is based on the ancient
belief that, all that exists has already
been discovered and that this knowledge is
contained in the ancient scriptures.
However, the correlation between
astrological predictions and real life
events is what makes the existence of
knowledge is not limited to making
astrological predictions alone, it also
teaches us how to mould bad situations to
our advantage and how to derive the most
benefit from good situations. The ancient
Hindu texts contain techniques for remedying
unfavorable astrological conditions. Some of
the better known methods are through the use
of Gemstones, Sri Nav Ratna Jewelry,
Yantras, Tantra and Mantras (chants).
Vedic Talismans or
'Yantras' are very powerful and effective
remedial tools, although they aren't perhaps
as well known, outside Vedic circles, as the
other mentioned techniques. 'Vedic
Talismans' come from the ancient Hindu
scriptures, the Vedas and Upanishads.
meaning of Yantra is 'Device', but it is
unlike any manmade device, as it's working
is in complete harmony with nature. It is
believed that a Yantra possesses infinite
power, that it's results are miraculous and
that it can not only remove problems, but
also realize wishes.
> What makes
up a Yantra?
Yantras are made
up from Vedic symbols, comprising of
straight lines, squares, rectangles,
triangles and circles. These symbols are so
precise in design, that even the angles
employed are determined to the last degree.
Some talismans may also comprise of numbers
and letters of the 'Dev Nagari' script.
represent the five basic elements: Earth,
Wind, Fire, Air, Water and Ether. Each
element is associated with certain
properties. For example Earth denotes among
other things stability, patience, material
happiness and success. While Wind represents
dishonor, sorrow and ignorance. These
symbols are arranged so as to enhance one
property and enervate the other.
should not be confused with lucky charms, as
both are conceptually different. Also, in
most cases, the possessor of a Vedic
talisman is not required to be in physical
contact with the talisman itself, unlike
many good luck charms. 'Vedic Talismans' can
be created out of many different materials
such as 'Asht Dhatu' or a special eight
metal alloy, gold, silver, copper, crystals
or even plant leaves. Certain materials are
more suited to certain Yantras. However, any
Vedic Talisman has an intrinsic energy which
is always radiated, irrespective of size or
material and these factors are not critical
to it's power. You will find that even a
small Yantra, made of inexpensive material
is a powerful source of positive energy.
A Yantra is only
active when it has been consecrated or,
'Energized', then it becomes a Power Yantra.
A consecrated, Power Yantra is considered to
be the dwelling of the Gods and Deities it
represents. In fact Yantra also means
'Abode'. Once it has been energized, a
Yantra becomes an independent source of
spiritual energy that not only influences
those who worship it, or wear it, but also
the surroundings in which it is placed.
> How many
types of Vedic Talismans or Yantras are

concentration and harmony. Other talismans

evil wishes or adverse astrological

> How does a
Vedic Talisman or Yantra Work?
The sound by which
all things are created isn’t just any sound,
it is the Word of God, this word pervades
through everything that exists. The power of
the spoken word in the form of prayers,
hymns and chants, is a belief that is common
to all major religions and these sounds
resonate in churches, mosques and temples
throughout the world. In Hinduism, Mantras
are a combination of sacred words, composed
According to the
ancient texts, the chanting of Mantras can
lead to spiritual enlightenment and oneness
with God. The visual equivalent of a Mantra
is a 'Yantra', it is in fact the graphical
representation of a Mantra. It has been
scientifically observed, that when sound
waves of certain frequencies are directed at
a Yantra, the reflected waves mirror the
patterns inscribed on the Yantra surface.
This principle of wave polarization is
believed to also extend to other energy
forms, such as light, heat, magnetic fields
and spiritual energy.
Yantras concentrate the various forms of
positive energy that pervade through the
Universe, when our ‘Inner Divinity’ is
focused on a Vedic Talisman or Yantra, this
energy is released upon us and into the
surroundings, thereby causing the profound
effects that are observed.
> How is a
Yantra Energized or consecrated?
A Yantra is
energized with the performing the complex,
ancient consecration rituals set out in the
Vedas. First an auspicious date is chosen,
in accordance with the astrological
positions. Then the exact time at which the
ceremony has to be preformed on that
selected date is calculated. At that precise
time, in the presence of a 'Sacred Fire',
the appropriate Mantras and prayers are
recited and offerings made. This is done so
as to invoke the Gods and Deities to invest
their power and presence on the Yantra,
igniting it with positive spiritual energy.
Vedic Talismans or Yantras find a prominent
place in many Hindu religious practices, as
well as religious places of worship.
