The Sri Yantra also called Sri Chakra is a beautiful and complex
sacred geometry used for worship, devotion and meditation. It has
been in use for thousands of years and it's origin seems unknown.
The central figure is composed of nine interlocking triangles. Every
triangle is connected to the others by common points and this is
the reason why it is so difficult to draw correctly. Changing the size
or position of one triangle often require changing the position of
many other triangles.
After making a few attempts at drawing this figure it becomes
obvious that it's not as easy as it looks. Given the fact that this is
one of the oldest and most recognizable sacred geometry one
would assume that a method for drawing this famous figure
precisely would be easy to find. Not so. The two most famous
methods from Indian origin, shown here and here are very
imprecise and/or incomplete.
After looking carefully at the figures produced by these different
techniques one realizes that they are all different! Was there an
original geometry that has been lost with time? Is there a way to
find out? These are some of the questions that are answered here.

The optimal Sri Yantra is the configuration that we consider to be the
closest to the original figure after doing an in depth mathematical
investigation. See the article here for more information. An optimal Sri
Yantra must satisfy all of these three caracteristics:

1.
Concurrency: All triple nodes meet at one point.
2.
Concentricity: The center of the innermost triangle and the
enclosing circle coincide.
3.
Equilaterality: The innermost triangle is equilateral.
