Fractals of Reality Book

“The Śrīcakra is held together by the unifying force of the Bindu from which all the elements emerge and disperse into its farthest reaches. If the Śrīcakra is the whole of creation, each of its elements is a fractal, holding within itself the potential for totality. Each element is a fractal of reality and a portal to wholeness.”

The Śrīcakra is a yantra, a diagramatic representation of the cosmic unfolding. Usually, commentaries on the Śrīcakra focus either on its ritual worship that leads to its understanding and internalization, or on its mystical aspects and the benefits of its sādhanā in terms of wealth, powers, or fulfillment of life goals. In both, there tends to be a paucity of expansion on its profound psycho-physio-socio-cultural correlations with the issues we struggle with, which tend to be removed from ritual and mysticism. In this approach, life and sādhanā remain distinct and separate, where the insights of study or practice remain inaccessible in the moment-to-moment unfolding of life.

In this book, Kavitha Chinnaiyan offers us a teaching of the Śrīcakra that is highly practical and applicable in the trenches of life, where it matters most.
