Chakra pooja or Yantra pooja is the worship of a deity in a diagrammatic form. This type of worship exists in a lot of the other parts of the world also.

The worship of Devi in Shreechakra is regarded as the highest form of the Devi worship. Originally Lord Shiva gave 64 Chakras and their Mantras to the world, to attain various spiritual and material benefits.

Sri Yantra is the most important Symbol in the worship of the Divine Mother. Durga, Kali and Lalitha are the three forms of Parvathi which are most widely used for worship.
