What does Yoga Shakti Peetham architecture reveal ?
The temple architecture depicts the inner journey of the self through ancient yogic wisdom. The deities consecrated through Prana Pratishta are Sri Siddhi Ganapathi, Sri Kaivalya Venkateshwara, Sri Sitaramanjaneya, Sri Radhakrishna, Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Ma Dakshina Kali who are the presiding deities of various energy centres. And the Yoga Lingam is a store house of all energy centres and the Mother of Atma Vidya. Ma Yoga Shakti Peetham is a confluence of Shaiva, Shakta and Vaishnava traditions. According to Agamas, the body is the temple and Ishwara resides in the body. But today many of us are forgetting the truth and getting stuck in mere rituals. But Ma Yoga Shakti Peetham reminds a sadhaka of Sukshma Sharira and higher realms of consciousness. In a nut shell Ma Yoga Shakti Peetham is the inner journey of the self.
