Sri Yantra - why is it on every pair of Sacred Seed Collection Antidote pants?

There is so much to be found in the Sri Yantra that it cannot all be covered here. Below are the "tips of the iceberg" of why I chose the incredible Sri Yantra as the form that I literally hand block print on every pair of Sacred Seed Collection Antidote pants.

First, the triangles - There are Four isosceles triangles with the apices upwards, representing Shiva or the Masculine. Then there are Five isosceles triangles with the apices downward, symbolizing female embodiment Shakti. Thus the Sri Yantra represents the union of Masculine and Feminine Divine.

9 Triangles

4 Up

5 Down

Together the nine triangles are interlaced in such a way as to form 43 smaller triangles in a web symbolic of the entire cosmos or a womb symbolic of creation. Together they express Advaita or non-duality.

To me, a Seed represents the creation of the Universe. It IS all there is, because it is the origin of the physical realm. This fits nicely with what I've described so far or the Sri Yantra.

Second, the Invisible Bindu Point in center. This is the power point, visualizing the highest, the invisible, elusive centre from which the entire figure and the cosmos expand. The Sri Yantra is purposefully placed in the center of the pants, and as such, in the center of us while we're wearing them.

Third, the triangles are enclosed by two rows of (8 and 16) petals, representing the lotus of creation and reproductive vital force. The location chosen for the Sri Yantra on the Sacred Seed Antidote Pants is no mistake. Our reproductive vital force is right there.

Fourth, the broken lines of the outer frame denote the figure to be a sanctuary with four openings to the regions of the universe.

The Sri Yantra is a tool to give a vision of the totality of existence, so that the adept may internalize it's symbols for the ultimate realization of this unity with the cosmos.

What if clothing was sacred? 

Every pair of Sacred Seed Collection Antidote pants is embossed with this sacred symbol right in the root. I designed these pants as Sacred clothing you can be active in, instead of active wear you feel guilty in.

  • Cultural appropriation is a great term to describe this entire video. First of all the use of rainwater is charming and the concern for the planet is great, however saying chemicals from dying cloths are “melting peoples skin” is very melodramatic. Having the Shriyantra on the crotch is very untactful…I personally do not want to draw attention there during my practice. Also how does that look when non-yoga people see the pants and connect yoga with lude crotch logos? Maybe put another logo on the butt, because this could not get any worse!

  • Displaying the Sri Yantra at the crotch of your product Sacred Seed Collection Antidote pants is disrepectful and displays either your ignorance or total lack of respect for this sacred symbol and the Spiritual significance this symbol holds. It is quite disgraceful that you choose to money profit by using the sacred Sri Yantra, or any other sacred symbols or images at the crotch….disgraceful, shameful, ignorant, and beyond in any way acceptable.

  • I’m absolutely appalled. So you read a Wikipedia article about it. That does not entitle you to literally make shit up about how this ritual object can be used in an intentional spiritual practice. Maybe you should have educated yourself a tiny bit further before you decided the Sri Yantra belonged on the crotch of anyone’s pants.

  • This is a gross example of cultural appropriation. In the crotch? Really?

    I understand wanting to create something sacred and intentional, but this is not the way to do it.

    I’m truly disappointed.

  • I didn’t notice that in the pants I tried on the other day.
