Divine Mother Meditation
Vishwa Shakti Avaham
Vishwa - universal
Shakti - energy of Divine Mother, everything feminine in the Universe (mother, daughter, lover, friend), but undefined with no relationship
Avaham - come here, manifest, make it to be, let me know you are here
This mantra, Vishwa Shakti Avaham, will call in the energy of the Divine Mother, awakening the feminine essence within. Women chant this mantra to know themselves as Divine Mother, divine lover, divine Shakti, pure feminine energy. Men chant this mantra to penetrate into the universal women, like if every cell was individually penetrating the universal feminine substance of the universe. To charge the mantra, use a mala while fixing your eyes on the Sri Yantra of Divine Mother (image to the right).
The Sri Yantra of the Divine Mother is a sacred wheel. At first, we may feel outside of the Divine Mother, but when we fix upon the Sri Yantra our consciousness moves into the Universal Womb. Shift your perception to the point of view of the Divine Mother, looking at the yantra from within, towards the outside.
A detailed view reveals the minuscule sphere at the center where the Divine Mother is hidden. Nine intersecting triangles are an expression of the Universal Matrix. It is Shakti, the essence or energy of the Divine Mother. They represent various levels of expansion and refinement of the universal un-manifested substance. Nine is the number of the matrix. The triangle itself signifies expansion and also holds the liquid of the womb. The eight and sixteen petaled lotuses represent the sexual organs of the Divine Mother giving birth. The eight petals are like the inner lips of the vagina; the sixteen petals are like the outer lips. The inner lips/petals (inner shape), represents inner wisdom. The outer lips/petals (outer shape), represent tangible energy. The minuscule sphere in the middle of the Sri Yantra is the outer shell of the Divine Mother, the seed that holds the power of all the Universe.
The sphere that the triangles sit in is the channel leading to the Mother’s womb, or uterus. The square is a symbol of outer shape, or doorway. The cross is a symbol of structure. Thus, the square embedded cross is a symbol of the shapes and structures ready to manifest. The outer squares are symbols of the manifestation itself.
The Sri Yantra of Divine Mother is the entire Universe. What we first perceive is the opposite of reality. As our eyes move from the outer edges of the Sri Yantra inward to the Divine Mother hidden in a tiny sphere, we see a transition from gross structure to something refined and subtle. But in reality the Divine Mother is immense and all encompassing. Everything is within the Divine Mother.
