A yantra is a diagram featuring but not limited to geometric, mystical elements, and shapes such as circles, triangles, and others. It is believed to be a dwelling place of gods or goddesses and is traditionally used for worship. When praying with planetary yantras, the benefit is said to counteract the ill effects of other clashing planets. The various yantras which are shown in this painting illustrate variations of sun symbol, a divine manifestation of cosmic intelligence and enlightenment. The colors used on the four yantras are heavy with red and orange, matching Surya’s face at the very center.Throughout the background are sun rays from the outermost circle that completed the painting as beams of sunlight.
