Sri Chakra is said to contain within itself the essence of all other yantras. Thus it contains the essence of all traditions. Its mere presence is said to cleanse the home of defects under both the vaastu and feng shui systems; to ward off and neutralize negative energies and the evil eye. It protects against unfavorable planetary influences; and brings about healing, prosperity and peace of mind. Wherever it is placed, it brings order, peace, happiness, health, and wealth. When buried in the Centre of a Plot (Nabhi Sthan), it ensures continuous waves of prosperity and well being of the dwellers. Various scriptures such as the Shakti Upanishads, the Brahmanda Purana, the Sri Chakra Samhita, the Sri Chakra Yoga Sara, the Sri Chakrartha Sara and others all state in a single voice that merely seeing the Sri Chakra washes away all sins and grants auspiciousness.
