Hinduism is the Only Dharma in this multiverse comprising of Science & Quantum Physics.
Josh Schrei helped me understand G-O-D (Generator-Operator-Destroyer) concept of the divine that is so pervasive in the Vedic tradition/experience. Quantum Theology by Diarmuid O'Murchu and Josh Schrei article compliments the spiritual implications of the new physics. Thanks so much Josh Schrei.

Sri Yantra and Tantra school of philosophy
Many great saints of India – including Adi Shankaracharya, Dnyaneshwar, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu – were believers of the Tantra school of philosophy.
Most of the Tantric philosophical texts were written by Abhinav Gupta in Kashmir around the 10th century CE.
The fundamental premise of these works was the essential interconnectedness of the universe and the individual. It promoted the arousing of the dormant psychic energy in every human being to conjoin with the cosmic energy. Sri Yantra is one of the sacred shapes designed to symbolize this union and is a powerful energy centre.
In fact, Tantra philosophy is based on accurate scientific data. Science believes that there are energy centres in the universe and after much thought and research, great seers have designed configurations of shapes – comprising circles, squares and triangles – to denote these centres.
Sri Yantra is one such configuration of triangles, which denotes the four-fold abstract energy, which is called Purusha, and the five-fold matter energy, which projects itself as creation.
“The Tantrik configuration of shapes is not only common to Indiacentric religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism but also to Christianity and Judaism.
The recent best-seller book – Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code – chronicles that the Blade and the Holy Grail (Purush and Prakriti) were two triangles, one facing upward and one facing downwards. These were considered sacred symbols of Christianity and symbolized the energy of creation – combining the male and female aspects of Nature or divinity. The Star of David – a holy symbol for the Jews – too included two such triangles.
Recently, Rashmi delivered a lecture in on the evolution of the Sri Yantra at the Museum Society of Bombay.
“This Yantra is part of the expression of the epiphanic experience of Tantrik art. The Sri Yantra is a figure which has four upward facing triangles and five downward facing triangles,” she says,
“The four upward triangles represent consciousness – and symbolize Chitta, Mana, Buddhi and Ahankar (Antahkaran) which describe the Purush or the doer-witness concept of nature. The downward pointing triangles symbolize the five Tanmatras i.e. Sparsh or vayu, Roop or fire, Rasa or water, Gandha or prithvi and Akash or shabda. These are the five elements through which the universal consciousness or Purush creates matter.
The concept describes cosmic energy, which through its vibrations creates matter and movement. It is also seen as a combination of the male and female aspects of power or the confluence of Karmendriyas and Gyanendriyas.”
