Significance of Yantras in Bhoomi Puja


Yantras (mystical diagrams) are powerful mystical products used in Vasthu Sastra to enhance energy flow and correction of a negative environment.

The proper placement of the yantras has been found to provide a cure for the negativity that afflicts the property and protect the dwellers residing on such a property.

On August 4, I joined my seventh generation Vasthu Sastra Master Yuvaraj Sowma to perform the yantra ceremony on a land in Brisbane.

The rectangular piece of land owned by teacher Rohininandan Das had an alignment problem and to remedy the defect, he decided to perform the yantra ceremony on his plan prior to the construction of his double-storey bungalow.

Yantras represents the five elements ”“ earth, air, fire, water and ether ”“ and Das had the silver version placed on his land in Parkinson suburb.

Master Yuvaraj explained that each yantra has a different purpose and he buried them in the eight sectors of the property. 

They are used for a dweller seeking contentment, comforts, education, success and love.

The yantras remove restlessness, and avert failure and troubles. They bestow wisdom and respect, create affection, and remove worries and bring success in the effort to seek spirituality in solitude.

Master Yuvaraj said the recommended use is on the land of a new property (residential or commercial) for a building or land that is unable to have the things arranged according to Vasthu rules or having defects. 

He performed the two-hour long ceremony which started at 5.30am and was participated by Das, his wife Kamini Meera and their twin daughters Sachi Devi and Sita Devi.

Eight holes were dung in the eight compass directions of the land to nullify any negative effects of the ground and renew the gravitational power of the earth. 

The prayer items involved in the ceremony were Turmeric powder, Kumkum powder, coconuts, camphor, beetle nuts and leafs, bananas, rice, brown sugar, lime, flowers and incense sticks.

According to Master Yuvaraj, just as a mantra is a sound composition, a yantra is a geometrical composition that reveals a particular energy configuration whose power increases in exact proportion to the abstraction and precision of the diagram. 

Used together with a mantra or seed sound syllables, each yantra displays the patterns of force heard in the mantra. 

The yantra is a potent and dynamic sacred symbol. The concentric lines of yantras define their volume and create a rhythmic unity.

Yantras function as revelatory symbols of cosmic truths and as instructional charts of the spiritual aspects of human experience.

It is a psychic product of personal fulfilment.  

Though a complex symbolic construction with multiple layers of metaphysical meaning, it also aids man to return to his original wholeness. 

Master Yuvaraj said once a dweller has performed this ceremony, the power of the yantra buried in the plot can last for 60 years.

Flowers and prayers items were played on the yantras after they placed in each hole and were later completed sealed by earth.

Das and his family performed the ritual in deep devotion and respect and they were happy to be part of the ancient ceremony.

Meera said that they felt the sense of fulfilment upon the completion of the yantra ceremony and now wait for the smooth construction of the dream house following 100% Vasthu rules.
