Yantras  are visual tools that serve to focus attention either symbolically depicting the energy structures of various deities, as seen by the wise seer.

in  "Kularnava Tantra"  says  Yantra mantra MAYYAM proctitis  MANTRATIM DEVATAYV CI DEHAT MANOR Yatha bhedam YANTRA DEVATAYOSTATH A  This means that divinity is present in the  yantra and  mantra * . Between  yantra  and  mantra  there is the same difference as between mind and body.  Yantra  can be compared to the body, or external appearance, the gods  (demigods) , while the  mantra  is the mind, the mind, the spirit, the name.  At the same text states that body needs the spirit, and  yantra  deity as much oil to the lamp, as the yantra is an external, visible expression through which the deity accepts invitation to worship him.  When  yantra  is used in worship and filled with energy, it becomes a symbolic personification of the deity - and becomes by  god, if  sadhak  casts an analytical and critical attitude to the ceremony, while in his senior centers begins the cycle of energy. Each  yantra  is the abode of the deity to whom it is dedicated. In the external form of  the yantra  remains the essence of the iconographic image of the deity, his spirit, but no icon does not compare in its power to yantra. The iconographic image always has individual traits and  yantra  is universal, since it consists of archetypal parts common to all events.

In Sanskrit word  yantra  has at least two meanings. It comes from the root of  the pits , meaning "to support, retain." The word "hold" also means "keep, preserve" the essence of the object, thoughts and concepts. Syllable  tra  comes from the word  ladder : "liberation from bondage." Thus, the  yantra  is what keeps the essence and releases. In a broader sense, the word yantra  in Sanskrit means "tool." When the word  yam  is used in its symbolic sense (Yama - the god of Death), and  tra  means the achievement of  thrones , or freedom,  yantra  is understood as something that brings  moksha  - liberation from the grip of death (the cycle of death and rebirth).

PLACE OF Yantra place where created  yantra  for worship ,  must meet the following requirements:  - Clean and privacy. Before you start creating  yantra  should conduct cleaning, repeating the  mantra pavitrikaram  (cleansing mantra .)  - No noise and exciting sensory or visual stimuli.  - No people or objects that cause the practitioner fear or anxiety.  - Never use an open space, but the room is not should be dark. The practitioner must be under a roof or in the shade.  - Good ventilation.  Upon completion of  the yantra  should begin worship;  yantra should not be put on public display as a work of art .  Yantra  on paper are used to achieve  direct vision , who are called  "yantras  for  darshan " . They can be put in the sanctuaries, or religious schools. Putting the  yantras  in exhibitions and museums bring misfortune to their author.  At the end of the construction  yantra  for worship, as well as at the end of each ritual worship of  Shakti  is necessary to repeat the following mantra :  SHARNAMBHI Saran Siddha VIDYADHARANAM  MUNI DANUDZHA Naranjo VYADHIBHI POWER  NARAPATI GRAHGATANAM DASIBHISTRASITANAM  TVAMASI SHARANMEKA DURGEPRASED Devi  Vidya SAMASTASTAV Devi bhedam  ISTRIYYA SAMA CTA Sakal DZHAGATSU  TVIEKYA Purita AMBAYI TAT CA TE ISTUTIH ISTAVYA PAIR PROTITAH  AUM Shanta Shanta Shanta. I am in your refuge - You're the master of all  Siddha Vidiye  (occult knowledge),  the one who brings relief  munis  (sages)  Dunaway  (demons) and  the bunks  (people), gives courage to those who are to meet with the king,  and eliminates the fear of robbers. I seek refuge in Thy protection, Durga Devi  (here instead of the name of Durga, you can use the name of Kali, Tara, etc.).  All  vidya  - only your various manifestations, and all the female form - your appearance.  Thou, Mother Amba, pervades universe. How can you praise?  How can you pray? You are above all praise and prayers.  Aum peace, peace, peace.
                               Yantra ten Mahavidya
