YANTRA OF THE TEN THOUSAND THINGS (still image--see NFTs for motion)
Yantra (यन्त्र) is a geometrical diagram, mainly from the Tantric traditions of the Indian religions. Yantras are used for the worship of deities in temples or at home; as an aid in meditation; used for the benefits given by their supposed occult powers based on Hindu astrology and tantric texts. They are also used for adornment of temple floors, due mainly to their aesthetic and symmetric qualities. Specific yantras are traditionally associated with specific deities and/or certain types of energies used for accomplishment of certain tasks, vows, that may be materialistic or spiritual in nature. It becomes a prime tool in certain sadhanas performed by the sadhaka the spiritual seeker. Yantras hold great importance in Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism. Definition courtesy of Wikipedia. "The Ten Thousand Things" is a phrase often used in Buddhist and Taoist writings to describe the total phenomena of our universe. My yantra is composed of grass because it is a universal food, supporting food chains in our world.
