Why a 6 Pointed Star in YogangSTAR?

Yogangstar is created by Yogi’s for Yogi’s. The symbolism of the 6 pointed Star is a powerful Yantra symbol known at “The Shatkona”. It is a symbol used in Hindu yantra that represents the union of both the masculine and feminine form. More specifically it represents Purusha (the supreme being), and Prakriti (mother nature, or causal matter). It is the representation of Shiva and Shakti.

At Yogangstar we are all about the heart. The heart chakra “Anahata” is represented by a lotus flower with twelve petals. Inside there is a smoky region at the intersection of two triangles, creating a shatkona.

In 3d form the Star becomes known as a Tetrahedron and has also been known since ancient times as the ‘Mer-Ka-Ba’ (Merkaba), the divine light vehicle (light body) used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. "Mer" means Light. "Ka" means Spirit. "Ba" means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light (wheels within wheels; the two tetrahedrons rotating in opposite directions), which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another, as in the process of ‘ascension’.
