The Shiva Panchakshara Yantra is a sacred geometrical diagram that embodies the shakti of Lord Shiva. Focusing on this yantra quiets the mind and draws a seeker’s awareness inward toward the Self. By meditating on this yantra, you can experience Lord Shiva’s formless nature and all-pervasive bliss.

As you rest your awareness on the image, let your mind gravitate to any element to which it is naturally drawn. The vibration of the mantra Om Namah Shivaya is seen and felt throughout the yantra. As you meditate on the yantra, it’s okay if you feel your focus wandering. Lord Shiva is extolled as “the compassionate one” and he smiles upon all who make a sincere effort.
