Rachel Roggel - "Roads to Peace, Equality, and Tranquility"

Sri YantraThe Sri Yantra Mandala is in the panel of equality at the center of the work and it symbolizes the balance between the male the female principles which are the basis for the cultures of the Orient. In the Tibetan tantra, the Ying and Yang, and the all mighty and the Shechinah in the Kabbalah are central to the idea of the solution to the labyrinth (Ariadne and her scarlet thread, Rahav of Jericho with hers) even though it is not the woman who solves the mystery. The red labyrinth of Chakra Vyuha, that is placed so that it is half in the panel of equality and half in the panel of peace is said to ease the labor pangs of women.
