The Sri Yantra
The seven cosmic planes of consciousness. 


Correspondence between the Cosmic Tree of Life and the 3dimensional Sri Yantra. 
There are 504 SLs in the 91 Trees of Life in CTOL down to the top of the 7tree that maps the physical plane
(26dimensional spacetime). The 84 Trees above it comprise the 42 Trees mapping the 42 subplanes
of the six cosmic superphysical planes and the 42 analogous Trees that map the 42 subplanes of the
six superphysical planes. The 252 SLs down to the top of the 49tree mapping the
49 subplanes of the cosmic physical plane consist of three sets of 84 SLs. The 84 light red
SLs span the Pillar of Mercy, the 84 light blue SLs span the Pillar of Judgement and the 84 light green SLs span
the central Pillar of Equilibrium. There are three more similar sets of dark red, dark blue & dark green SLs
down to the top of the 7tree. Hence, 168 light & dark green SLs line the central pillar
down to this point. This is how the number value 168 of Cholem Yesodeth, the Mundane
Chakra of Malkuth, specifies that section of CTOL that is its Malkuth level, namely, the 7tree, or
physical plane. Fortysix more black SLs in the 7tree extend to the lowest point of CTOL. Each of the seven cosmic
planes expresses one of the seven Sephiroth of Construction, as do the seven subplanes comprising each cosmic
plane, the seven planes of the cosmic physical plane and the seven subplanes of each of these planes.
Compare these properties with the 3dimensional Sri Yantra when the 42 triangles are turned into Type A triangles and the central one is turned into a Type B triangle (for the definition of these two types of triangles, see Sacred Geometry/Tree of Life). The seven planes of consciousness have a onetoone correspondence with the seven Sephiroth of Construction (physical↔Malkuth, astral↔Yesod, mental↔Hod, etc). The six superphysical planes are associated with the six Sephiroth of Construction other than Malkuth. In the tetractys, the latter are symbolized by the six hexagonal yods that lie on its edges, the central hexagonal yod denoting Malkuth. The 504 hexagonal yods that line the sides of the 126 tetractyses in the 42 triangles of the Sri Yantra are the counterpart of the 504 SLs belonging to the 84 Trees of Life mapping all superphysical realms of consciousness. The counterpart of the 46 SLs below the top of the 7tree are the 46 black yods in the central triangle. The presence of the 504 hexagonal yods on sides of tetractyses would, of course, continue if it were the 2dimensional version of the Sri Yantra that was being considered. So either version can be considered as equivalent to CTOL. However, the point at the centre of the central triangle is regarded in Tantra as the source of creation and this does not fit its symbolizing the bottom of CTOL — the opposite to this, being the final emanation of God. But then the central triangle symbolizes, according to Tantra, the trimûrti of Shiva, Brahma & Vishnu, and this is inconsistent with its identification with the physical universe mapped by the 7tree. In order to retain the traditional meaning of the bindu point as standing outside all realms of consciousness, it does make a difference which version of the Sri Yantra is the correct counterpart of CTOL. Only its 3dimensional form, which has this point hovering above the central triangle and the four layers of 42 triangles stacked on top of one another, is the right counterpart.
The 91 overlapping Trees of Life in CTOL are composed of 3108* corners, sides & triangles, where
3108 = 1^{4} + 3^{4} + 5^{4} + 7^{4},
i.e., this number is the sum of the fourth powers of the first four odd integers. The geometrical composition of CTOL is determined by the Tetrad:
Notice that 3108 = 444×7, where 7 is the fourth odd integer. The Tetrad also determines the 2dimensional Sri Yantra because 240 corners, sides & triangles surround its centre, where 240 = 10×24 = (1+2+3+4)1×2×3×4. The physical plane (the spacetime continuum) is mapped in CTOL by its lowest seven Trees of Life and in the Sri Yantra by its central triangle. It is Malkuth, whose gematria number value is 496, where
It is no coincidence that this number is that found in 1984 by physicists Michael Green and Gary Schwarz to be the crucial dimension of a YangMills gauge symmetry group governing the interactions of 10dimensional superstrings that is free of quantum anomalies. It is embodied in the cosmic physical plane as the 496 yods lying on or aligned with the Pillar of Equilibrium of 49 overlapping Trees of Life when their triangles are tetractyses.** Making use of the formula proved in the footnote, these 49 Trees are composed of (34×49 + 14 = 1680) points, lines & triangles. Here is a spectacular conjunction of the two most fundamental parameters of superstrings — one (496) referring to their forces described by E_{8}×E_{8} and one (1680) referring to their 4dimensional spacetime structure, namely, the 1680 circular turns of each helical whorl of the UPA as counted by C.W. Leadbeater. Here is an undeniable meeting point of the mystical, the scientific and the paranormal. Even the most diehard sceptic of the paranormal would, if he is honest, admit that it is too unlikely that the simultaneous appearance of these two numbers in the geometry of the Tree of Life representation of the cosmic physical plane could be due to chance. Yet the sceptic has to embrace the miraculously improbable in order to avoid having to believe what is anathema to him, namely, that remote viewing of the subatomic world is possible and was successfully achieved by Besant & Leadbeater. No one should be fooled by his forcing his disbelief to reject all common sense concerning what, plausibly, can be coincidental.
* Proof: Number of corners of triangles in n overlapping Trees of Life = 6n + 4.
Number of sides of triangles in n overlapping Trees of Life = 16n + 6.
Number of triangles in n overlapping Trees of Life = 12n + 4.
Number of corners, sides & triangles in n overlapping Trees of Life = 34n + 14. For n = 91, this is 3108.
** Proof: The number of yods on the Pillar of Equilbrium from Malkuth of the 1tree up to (but not including)
Tiphareth of the 1tree = 9 (see here). The quadrilateral Faces of successive Trees have 10 yods per Face
that are on, or aligned with, this pillar (see here). For n overlapping Trees, there are (n1) Faces between the lowest
Face of the 1tree and the highest Face of the nth Tree, which contain 7 such yods from its Tiphareth to its
Kether. Number of yods on, or aligned with, the Pillar of Equilibrium of n overlapping Trees = 9 + 10(n−1) + 7 =
10n + 6. For n = 49, this is 496.
