Yoga Jewelry- Mobius Yantra
Ancient wisdom of higher consciousness is effective in the Now as symbols representing energy forms our mind understands. Our special yantras utilizes the empowering yogic wisdom in its profoundness.
"Our ideal is not the spirituality that withdraws from life but the conquest of life by the power of the spirit." - Sri Aurobindo.
The Mobius Strip is an expression of non-duality. From the perspective of the Siddhar Sages, the realized yogis, the sacred trinity in its many forms (the biblical Holy Father, Holy Ghost and Holy Son being one of the several trinities of several levels of wisdom) dissolves dualities. The sacred trinity reveals the Unity of all polarities, creating a state of Oneness, joining the whole and the part, the masculine and the feminine, expansion and contraction, spirit and matter, etc. Everything is One and nothing can be separated from anything else.
All is completely intertwined, infinitely. The Mobius Strip is a spiritually significant symbol of balance and union. (Yoga=Union) The Buddhist philosophy of Tantrism also is expressed by the Mobius Strip shape. "Tantra" is continuity; the word derived from the root 'tan', meaning to extend... extend continuously, to flow, to weave. The continuum is descriptive of the Nature of Reality, by contemporary physicist David Bohm..."a single unbroken wholeness in flowing movement."
The Mobius Strip was discovered in 1858 by German mathematician and astronomer August Ferdinand Mobius (1790-1868). The mathematical equation is known as The Mobius Transformation, also known as bilinear transformation or linear fractional transformation. (Webster's dictionary:" A map of the complex plane to itself in which a point "z" is mapped to a point "w" by w=(az+b)/(cz+d), where a,b,c, and d are complex numbers and ad-bc does not equal zero.") It is a continuous loop with one surface and one edge formed by twisting one end of a long, thin rectangular strip 180 degrees (1/2 twist) and attaching this end to the other.
This fascinating shape expresses Transformation. Today the Mobius Strip has been chosen as the Universal symbol of recycling. It represents the process of transforming waste materials into useful resources. On a personal level, the Mobius strip represents a willingness to move WITH the constantly changing cycles in our Life process, transforming our challenges into useful solutions. The Mobius Strip reveals planetary transformation, as well. Historically, there has always been Earth changes, i.e. natural re-structuring of land and ocean masses, tide changes, weather changes, seasonal changes, etc. The Mobius Strip shape is symbolic of eternal change within stillness itself. Spiritual Jewelry.
PAPER WITH ONLY ONE SURFACE! Take a 12" strip of paper (1" wide) and twist one end 180 degrees. Tape the ends together. You have a Mobius Strip! Start drawing a pencil line all around, from the inside to the outside and back where you started. You'll find you never lifted the pencil off the paper and yet the one surface has a complete line through it. The inside becomes the outside and the outside becomes the inside. Continue by cutting along the pencil line. Instead of 2 separate strips of paper, you have ONE long Mobius Strip. Cut along the center of this strip again and you'll get two totally intertwined strips that don't separate. Do this forever, and you'll get an infinite number of intertwined strips that never separate!
