Humanity On The Pollen Path
The Great Sri Yantra Coincidence
by Joseph E. Mason
Note: In order to follow the meaning of this article, I recommend that the previous articles be read first, starting with -
On The Pollen Path - Part One
Symbols Of The Chakras And The Midpoint
In the previous article, I spoke of starting an outline article on this subject, and finding the book, Tantric Way: Art, Science, Ritual by Ajit Mookerjee and Madhu Khanna, four days later, on March 8, 1993. In order to clarify the nature of the "coincidence," I then reviewed a number of symbols and events that came before that time.
As I looked through the book, I found many connections to my work with dreams and symbols. I will skip that part, for now, and go on to the greatest coincidence.
I found this depiction on page 57 -
Sri Yantra. Rajastan, c. 18th
century. Gouache on paper.
I had finally found it - the pattern that had appeared in Oregon as a huge land marking grooved into the lake bed! And, yes!, the central star pattern was the one I drew back in 1990 and sent to Pat Delgado and others! I found the old "CPD" newsletter with the article, and my drawing in one of my old notebooks. I drew my Tantric Yantra star on September 13, 1990. The news story about the "sriyantra" lake bed marking came out the very next day, September 14, 1990!
I was in for more surprises, as I read some of the text -
"The Sri Yantra is a configuration of nine interlacing triangles centered around the bindu, drawn by the superimposition of five downward-pointing triangles, representing Sakti, and four upright triangles, representing Siva. Because it is a composition of nine (nava) triangles (yoni) it is often called 'Navayoni Chakra'.
The Sri Yantra is a symbolic pattern of Sakti's own form (svarupa), powers and emanations, the form of the universe (visvarupa), symbolizing the various stages of Sakti's descent in manifestation. It is a pictorial illustration of the cosmic field in creation. Like creation itself, the Sri Yantra came into being through the force of primordial desire. The impulse of desire (Kamakala), born of the inherent nature of Prakriti, creates a throb (spanda) which vibrates as sound (nada). This manifestation is represented by a point, or bindu. In the first state of manifestation, the bindu is called Para Bindu, which is the nucleus of the condensed energy, the seed of the ultimate Sound, and the dynamic and static aspects of the two (Siva-Sakti) in one. It contains all the possibilities of becoming; it transforms to Apara Bindu when creation begins: 'The essential point in the middle of the Yantra is the Supreme Sakti, when it swells it evolves into the form of a triangle' (Kamakalavilasa). The point assumes a radius, the polarization of Siva-Sakti takes place, the dynamic and static energies interact and two more points emerge to form a triad of points - the primary triangle or the Mula-trikona.
It seemed like another strange coincidence that the star has nine triangles, and that five triangles point downward and four upward. I had not thought of counting them back in 1990, but I had used the nine chits to create my drawing, and later found the Dali painting, Animated Still Life, with the nine symbols, five diamonds and four rectangles, from which I created another nine-circle diamond with the color coded sets of five groups of four circles. It was an attempt to find a 5-4 or 4-5 code in the layout.
There are a number of important concepts in the above quotation that fit very well with other dreams and crop circle formations. The Barbury Castle crop formation of 1991 seems quite similar to the innermost triangle with the bindu (small dot or circle) in the center. After I saw a photograph and diagram of that crop formation in September, 1990, I reviewed the glyphs in The Sacred Symbols of Mu. On page 187 there is a triangular glyph with a small circle inside, surrounded by a ring. James Churchward wrote that the the small circle with a ring around it symbolised "The monotheistic Deity" to the ancient people of the world. The equilateral triangle represented "heaven." Therefore the glyph on page 187 represents the Deity in heaven.
There is another glyph next to that one . . . an eye inside a triangle. James Churchward wrote, "An equilateral triangle with an eye within symbolizes the Deity looking out from heaven."
The first glyph is also depicted on page 125. The text reads -
"An equilateral triangle symbolised the Creator, and, as the Creator dwells in Heaven, the triangle must necessarily symbolize heaven also; for, where the Lord is, there is Heaven.
I find this verified among the Egyptian symbols, as the glyph shows. Here we find the Monotheistic Symbol of the Deity within the triangle - within Heaven. Wherever or whenever the equilateral triangle is met with in ancient writings or inscriptions, it is either in reference to the Triune Godhead, or Heaven, or both.
At the time of Confucius, the Chinese Sage, about 500 B. C., in place of the triangle the Chinese used a glyph in the form of the present-day capital Y. This they called: 'the Great Term,' 'the Great Unite,' 'the Great Y.' 'The Y has neither body nor shape, all that has body and shape was made by that which has no shape. The Great Term or Great Unite comprehends three - One in three - and three in One.'"
I realized that there was a Y-shape inside the Barbury Castle triangular formation. I later found in my notebook that I had dreamed of a Y-shape. I reported the dream in my 1992 article for The Dream Network Journal:
I saw a "Y"-shape that was also a woman's body where the legs meet. Three energy lines moved from the center, two outward and one downward. Then I saw it again but this time there were just the two outward energy lines. As I saw this, a voice said: "Some say there are three ways of unfolding the world. We say two".
I had the dream in June 1991, and the Barbury Castle triangular formation appeared the next month, although I did not know about it until September 1991. I found this quite amazing, because the meaning of the Chinese Great Y has a very similar meaning. The downward-pointing, central triangle of the Sri Yantra is related to the feminine aspect of Deity, and related symbolically to the "yoni," which means vagina.
Page 276 of Sacred Symbols of Mu shows another triangle glyph, with the letters A, U, and M, in the corners, which is more than 2,300 years old. The ancient Hindu book, Manava dharma Sastra, states:
"In the beginning the Infinite only existed called Aditi. Infinite dwelt A U M whose name must precede all prayers and invocations."
James Churchward continues . . .
"A U M conveys identically the same meaning and conception as the Mysterious Writing and Niven's Mexican tablet No. 2379. The difference between these and A U M is in the form of the writing. The Mysterious Writing and the Mexican tablet are in the old temple esoteric numeral writing. The Hindu A U M is written in alphabetical symbols which reads:
A - Ahau Masculine - Father
U - Feminine - Mother - She
M - Mehen The engendered - The Son - Man"
The concepts conveyed in The Tantric Way speak of the vibration "as sound." This seems to be related to the chant, "Om," or "Aum."
By the time I found The Tantric Way in early 1993, I had come to realize that symbols of the male-female duality were quite major in dreams and crop circle formations. The duality, in my research, seemed to be related to the concept of the Trinity, in terms of Father, Mother, and Son. The Son aspect, it seemed, had a dual, male-female nature, as well.
Various articles in crop circle journals also spoke of these concepts. The three circular glyphs at the corners of the 1991 Barbury Castle crop formation were said to have parallels in alchemical signs. The crop formation seemed to illustrate the idea in this way -
North glyph - The Sun, sulfur
Southwest glyph - The Moon, salt
Southeast glyph - (the "ratchet spiral) Mercury, quicksilver
The The alchemy web site and virtual library has more detailed information about the subject.
Mercury and his Greek counterpart, Hermes, had both male and female aspects. I mentioned this, among other things in my article, The Trinity Connection, and again in 11:11 - Humanity's Leap to the Heart Chakra. All of the material I read about the Trinity or Triune Deity emphasize that the three are always One. The idea that there are three gods involved, or the like, is said to be a corruption of the original meaning. The three aspects seem to represent more of a function of creation, and aspects of Deity.
The Tantric Way explains more about the Sri Yantra as emanations of creation outward from the single bindu point, and then speaks of another concept involving the design:
"The Sri Yantra is called 'Nava Chakra' since it is composed of nine circuits, counting from the outer plane to the bindu. Through contemplation on the Sri Yantra, the adept can rediscover his primordial sources. The nine circuits symbolically indicate the successive phases in the process of becoming. They rank from the earthly plane and rise slowly step by step to the final point, the state of supreme joy. By entering into the elan vital of the yantra, the adept reintegrates with it. The nine circuits within Sri Yantra move from the gross and tangible to the sublime and subtle realms.
The outermost periphery consists of a square, with four gates, colored white, red and yellow. This is the Bhupura, the groundplan, of the Sri Yantra.
Inside the square are three concentric circles, girdles (mekhala). The space between the square and three girdles is the Trailokya-mohana, or Enchantress of the Triple World, chakra; at this stage the adept is infatuated by asperations and desires."
"Next are two concentric rings of sixteen and eight lotus petals, respectively. They are called Sarva-saparipuraka chakra and Sarva-sankshobhana chakra, indicating fulfillment of desire."
"The fourth chakra, Sarva-saubhagyadayaka, or Giver of Auspiciousness, projects the realm of possibilities in spiritual ascent; it consists of the fourteen triangles forming the outer rim of the complex interlocking of triangles."
"The next two chakras are each constructed of ten triangles. Called Sarvartha-sadhaka and Sarvarakshakara, Accomplisher of All Purpose and Giver of Protection, they indicate a stage when inner realization begins to dawn."
"The seventh chakra, consisting of eight triangles, is called Sarva-rogahara, Remover of All Desires and Ills, and represents the stage when the adept is free from earthly bonds and is at the threshold of the inner circle of realization."
"An inverted triangle is the eighth chakra, Giver of All Accomplishments, of Sarva-siddhiprada; it denotes a stage before the consummation of realization. All the triangular chakras are coloured red, to represent radiant energy or the dynamic and fiery element of the cosmos."
"The last chakra, the Bindu, is known as Sarva-anandamaya, Full of Bliss. It is the sanctum sanctorum, abounding in joy, in which the adept participates in union. The point is light itself, beyond all colours, and is therefore represented as colourless."
I found it incredibly "coincidental" that the symbol for the fourth chakra fits so well with the drawing I made back in 1990. I'll place them side-by-side below, to illustrate the point:
I had unwittingly emphasized the heart chakra in my drawing back in 1990. I had no idea then that the star was used to symbolize chakras. Later, I had attempted to find a "sriyantra" diagram, and the newspaper report concerning the land marking in the lake bed in Oregon, but could not find them. I "just happened" to find the information in The Tantric Way, as I was composing an article positing the theory that the great earth change was a leap to the heart chakra by humanity en mass.
I had experienced constant "coincidences" since the dreams started in early 1990. I recounted in the first part of this article how various dreams and coincidences centered on Revelation 11:11, and the apparent "leap to the heart chakra" implication. One of the connections to Solara's teachings of the "11:11 Doorway," was the this:
"Create the key in geometric patterning of overlapping triangles within triangles. Thus the door opens and the new spiral is made visible."
I feel strongly that this great coincidence with the Sri Yantra was not an accident. The coincidences clearly seem to be planed somehow, and function as confirmations. I became quite confident that my theory is on the mark . . . that humanity is indeed on the Pollen Path, and the next step is the heart chakra.
I purchased a computer and got on-line around September, 1996. I searched for the story of the Oregon lake bed pattern. I found nothing about it. Then, months later, I found an article about it by ilyes, a crop circle researcher. There were no graphics with the article, but she added some later, including a photograph of the pattern etched into the lake bed. You will find it here:

December 18, 2005 Update
The 2005 crop circles included Sri Yantra type patterns. See:
Sri Yantra Links
I found that the female goddess, Kali, as portrayed in The Tantric Way, fit perfectly with the harlot of Revelation 17. I had read in other books that we are in a time cycle called the Kali-Yuga, the Age of Iron. An esoteric symbol of the Kali-Yuga is a reversed five-pointed star, that is, a star with two points up. The various ideas coming to me by dreams and coincidences led me to the theory that the great earth change is also the end of the Kali-Yuga, a time when karma will end, or become entirely positive.
I finished a hand-written essay of the Pollen Path article by the end of March, 1993, and later added additional material. I sent several copies of the article to people in the following months. Two weeks after sending a copy of my article, to John Crowe of the COSMINAR organization in Sussex, the Bythorn Mandala crop formation appeared. When I saw a photograph of the formation, I realized that a very similar pattern is in The Tantric Way. I found it on page 35 -
Shyama (Kali) Yantra. Rajasthan,
18th century. Gouache on paper.
There is yet another chain of coincidences that eventually connected to the the concepts I have related in these articles. The basic layout of the Sri Yantra star also connects with Ezekiel's vision of The Four Living Creatures, also called the Merkabah. The Four Living Creatures are a part of the incredible symbolism of the amazing event in the havens on August 11, 1999.
