Yantra of Durga

(The 3 main upward pointing triangles represent the trinity of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the sustainer and Shiva the destroyer. The downward pointing triangle is their manifestation as Durga the great mother goddess and the physical world. The fact that they are all inter-linked shows that each has within it, aspects of all the others).
