Ganesh Yantra

Yantras are great cosmic conductors of energy, an antenna of Nature, a powerful tool for harmony, prosperity, success, good health, yoga and meditation. Yantras are usually made out of copper and consist of a series of geometric patterns. The eyes and mind concentrate at the center of the yantra to achieve higher levels of consciousness. If one doesn't have an idol which one wishes to worship then one can worship the Yantra of that particular God eg: Ganesha Yantra. The Ganesha Yantra is a sacred energy device that infuses within you the power to focus and accomplish your goals. The radiations from the Yantra will enhance your positive spirits and stimulate your confidence level to succeed in all your efforts. Ganesha is the fundamental God of wisdom who removes all the obstacles that stand in your way of success. Obstacles are things we do not foresee and thus cannot plan for. Offering prayers to Lord Ganesha to remove obstacles before undertaking any task is a customary practice that helps to ensure a project moves forward successfully. To remove obstacles and negative forces that prevent your spiritual and material progress, this Yantra can come in handy.
