Every line, triangle, and lotus petal symbolizes a specific type of shakti in Shree Yantra. It consists of nine interlocking triangles that surround a central point known as a bindu (dot). These triangles represent the cosmos and the human body. Because of its nine triangles, Shri Yantra is also known as the Navayoni Chakra.
These 9 interlocking triangles form 43 small triangles; together they represent the energy of the universe. Triangle pointing upward represents the masculine energy and downward pointing triangle represents the feminine energy. The 12 and 15 sides of the four upward and five downward triangles respectively symbolizes the 12 sidereal zodiac signs of the Sun and 15 'nityas' phase-signs of the Moon. These 43 triangles are confined by two concentric circles which are composed of 8 and 16 lotus petals.
First ring of sixteen lotus petals represents complete fulfillment of all hopes and desires and in this materialistic world. Next are the eight lotus petals which govern a specific activity such as speech, grasping, motion, exertion, enjoyment, attraction, revulsion and equanimity.
Last the entire structure is framed by the outer square which represents the earth element and T-shape structures or openings in the square are considered the gates to the universe.
