Respected Madam,
May I know what these Yantras actually are? You say we should sit facing North-East, how did you learn all these things? I have seen such drawings in Tediyur Sastrigal's Soundarya Lahari book but I am very poor at reading Tamil, so couldn't comprehend.

Could you please explain these in detail.

Thanking you,
