Crystal Shree Yantra from Bhutan (with box)

A beautiful ornated silver box with a copper bottom, showing the eight-folded Dharmachakra.

The Yantra is cut out of rock crystal.

It consists of nine interlocking triangles that surround a central point known as bindu. Because of ist nine triangles, Shree Yantra is also known as the Navayoni Chakra.

When the two-dimensional Shree Yantra is represented in three dimensions, it is called a Maha Meru.

Mount Meru (Kailash) derives its name from this shape.
