UFO Sri Yantra Connection
UFO sighting signature Sri Yantra discovered in Oregon, now found worldwide

– Research at numerous Eugene libraries, including the vast collections of UFO materials at the University of Oregon library, finds numerous versions of the “Sri Yantra” symbol that's featured with this story; while, at the same time, the “watchers” UFO group’s recent meeting at the resort town of Seaside turned up “thousands of Sri Yantra” signatures that have been cropping-up out West and worldwide.
Moreover, the Sri Yantra is believed to be part of the secret UFO files that Julian Assange showed to friends when disclosing the WikiLeaks files that he wanted kept under wraps.
However, it’s the New Agers who've known the Sri Yantra as simply a symbol of “global peace and harmony.”
Still, it’s a wonder how this massive version of the Sri Yantra is showing up again after being more or less just something that was used in books and on New Age products for years.
After all, say local UFO “watcher” members, this Sri Yantra that they’ve seen around the region was not discovered until the early 1990’s as a sort of crop circle out in the eastern Oregon desert.
“We’ve seen it written in caulk on the corners of churches in downtown Seattle and Portland. We’ve seen it on paper flyers that someone is distributing around Seaside recently, and we’ve heard that the Sri Yantra is cropping up, literally, just about everywhere worldwide," says Greg Hainsworth who heads a “watcher task force” that investigates local Oregon coast UFO sightings.
Hainsworth said the “Sri Yantra” is known to “just about everyone who’s interested in UFO’s” here in Oregon, but it may not be known or understood by others.
In brief, the Sri Yantra is similar to an ancient Hindu mediation symbol, “but, we’re told it’s much, much older than any civilization from India,” adds Hainsworth while presenting a recently found copy of this proposed UFO “signature” at a recent “watchers” meeting at Seaside.
The Sri Yantra symbol was first discovered in a remote southeastern part of Oregon known as the Alvord Desert. In a place known as the Mickey Basin, a pilot photographed the Sri Yantra as a quarter-mile-wide pictograph etched into the ground in much the same way UFO crop circles are etched.
The Sri Yantra at the Mickey Basin was first discovered on Aug. 10, 1990, but quickly disappeared and has recently returned in odd places, such as recently showing up on car wideshields as a misty shadow near Stonefield Beach, Bray’s Point and other popular UFO sighting locations along the Oregon coast.
Moreover, the Sri Yantra symbol has been found in the want ads of numerous newspapers up and down the West coast and, more recently, it’s been noted in various communications worldwide both within and outside the UFO community.
“It’s now spotted, as a myserious mistake or typo, in the New York Times, the Washington Post, in major London, German, Spanish and other foreign newspapers as an odd symbol in the corner of advertisements or even on the funny pages,” explains Hainsworth who said some UFO watchers have made it their business to research the symbol and what it means.
The original measurements of the Sri Yantra symbol, that was located along a desert hillside, contains 13.3 miles of lines, ten inches wide and three inches deep.
It’s location in the desert of eastern Oregon is now a “sacred place” for UFO watchers worldwide who still make the journey to the Mikey Basin to be near the site where Sri Yantra was first discovered.
The Sri Yanta Facts
The Sri Yantra also called Sri Chakra is a beautiful and complex sacred geometry used for worship, devotion and meditation. It has been in use for thousands of years and it's origin seems unknown.
The central figure is composed of nine interlocking triangles.
Every triangle is connected to the others by common points and this is the reason why it is so difficult to draw correctly. Changing the size or position of one triangle often require changing the position of many other triangles.
After making a few attempts at drawing this figure it became obvious that it's not as easy as it looks. Given the fact that this is one of the oldest and most recognizable sacred geometry one would assume that a method for drawing this famous figure precisely would be easy to find. Not so. The two most famous methods from Indian origin, shown here and here are very imprecise and/or incomplete. The many modern techniques in existence will lead to a more accurate figure as shown here.
But after looking carefully at the figures produced by these different techniques one realizes that they are all different! Was there an original geometry that has been distorted with time? Is there a way to find out? These are some of the questions that we will attempt to answer on this site.
Sri Yantra Fast Facts:
1. The Sri Yantra is a sacred geometry that orginated in India
2. It is composed of 9 interlocked triangles
3. It is very difficult to draw without errors at the intersections
4. There a many variations of the Sri Yantra
5. There are many different methods to draw it
6. Nobody seems to know what the original configuration is
7. There are three main forms of the Sri Yantra: Plane, pyramidal, spherical
Classic Construction Methods
1. Inward construction method from commentary on Saundarya-lahiri written by Kaivalyashrama.
This is the figure we obtain if we apply the instructions that can be found here.
1. Draw a circle of the required size with a vertical line through the centre and divide this line into 48 equal units.
2. On this line make nine marks at a distance of 6, 12, 17, 20, 23, 27, 30, 36, and 42 units from the top, and draw nine horizontal lines (numbered 1-9) through these marks to meet with the circle.
3. At both ends of the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 9th lines rub off 3, 5, 16, 18, 16, 4 and 3 units respectively.
4. Join the ends of the 1st line to the centre of the 6th, the ends of the 2nd to the centre of the 9th, the ends of the 3rd to the circle at the bottom of the axis, the ends of the 4th to the centre of the 8th, the ends of the 5th to the centre of the 7th, the ends of the 6th to the centre of the 2nd, the ends of the 7th to the circle at the top of the vertical axis, the ends of the 8th to the centre of the 1st, and the ends of the 9th to the centre of the 3rd.
After applying this method we obtain a very crude aproximation with errors on many of the triple junction points. The reason for so many errors is a result of not following the proper drawing sequence shown here.
Another version of this method can be found here. By applying this variation we obtain the following figure:
Again this mehod produces more errors than necessary at the triple intersections. Here is a detailed view of the center area.
We also notice that the figure is not concentric, i.e. the center of the circle doesn't match with the center of the inner most triangle. One could reduce the number of errors by applying the proper drawing sequence to this method.
