Hinduism - What Is The Meaning Of Bindu?

Bindu is a Hindi word that means "drop." 

The bindu is the term for the dot at the exact center of the shrichakra, which is a Shrividya symbolic diagram (yantra) used in worship in the Shrividya school, a branch of the esoteric ritual tradition known as tantra. 

  • The shrichakra is made up of nine interlocking triangles, four of which point up and five of which point down, encircled by a double sequence of lotus petals and round and angular outer walls. 
  • The bindu represents the ultimate oneness of Shiva and Shakti, as well as the unity of all reality. 

The Secret of the Three Cities, by Douglas Renfrew Brooks, was published in 1990 and contains more material.
