Pranapratishta
Installation of Life in a Shri Yantra

Before any yantra is a suitable object for prayer, it must be given life (pranapratishta). The rite installs the 35 tattvas into the yantra. It also gives the yantra the full set of senses and the Antahkarana( Rainbow Bridge). Engraving a Shri Yantra on gold is said to hold good for life, on silver for seven years. The process also imbuesthe yantra with the matrika, the letters of the Sanskrit alphabet which are the goddesses as sound.

Brahmna-Vishnu-Maheshvara (The Trinity)are the Rishis of this great mantra installing life into the Shri Yantra; Rig, Yajur, Sam and Atharva are the Metres; Consciousness is the Devata(Divine Being); Am is the Bija(seed), Hrim the Shakti, Krom the Kilaka.
The application is installation of Life into the Shri Chakra.
