Sri Ramana Maharshi On Worship Of Sri Chakra

This small little passage of Sri Ramana Maharshi clears all doubts about the real significance of Sri Chakra worship.

Worship of Sri Chakra has a deep significance. There are 43 corners with sacred syllables in them. Its worship is a method for concentration of mind.

The mind wants to move externally. It must be checked and turned within. Its habit is to dwell on names and forms, for all external objects possess names and forms. Such names and forms are made symbolic of mental conceptions in order to divert the mind from external objects and make it dwell within itself.

The murtis/vigraham, mantras, yantras, etc., are all meant to give food to the mind in its introvert state, so that it may later become capable of being concentrated, after which the superb state is reached automatically.
