Yantra is an 'instrument' with great spiritual significance, used for meditation and concentration. Hindus consider it to be a window to the Absolute. Yantra is usually a geometric design and represents the macrocosm.

The yantra is usually symmetrical, and there are specific yantras for each diety. Shri Yantra is the most celebrated Yantra, and represents the entire universe.
