Importance of Placing Kurma Yantra And Matsya Yantra In Huge Buildings And Industrial Workshops

In mantra sastra, the method of worshipping Kurma Yantras has been described. In temples, the Dwajasthambam (flag post), when building huge houses or industrial workshops, malls or big buildings in the eastern direction of the foundation, it has become a tradition to consecrate Kurma Yantras along with Matsya Yantra.

The Mahabharata throws light on the above mentioned distinctions as affecting human life by the following metaphorical description: "Frightful is the current of life which, flowing in diverse directions, bears the world onward in its course. The five senses are its crocodiles; the manas and its purposes are its shores; temptation and stupefaction are the grass and straw that float on its bosom; lust and wealth are the fierce reptiles that live in it ; truth forms the tirtha by its miry banks ; falsehood forms its surges, and anger its mire. Taking its rise from the unmanifest, rapid is its current incapable of being crossed by persons of uncleaned souls. Do thou with the aid jnana cross that river which harbours alligators in the shape of the passions.” The Bhagavad Gita impresses the same truths in similar me
