This Ganesha Yantra Grammar poster created especially for teaching is based on the Ganesha Yantra painting by Pieter Weltevrede, that is also available as a poster without texts.

The poster gives an explanation of the symbolism used in the Ganesha Yantra and in yantras in general :

The square
is the neutral holder of the yantra that has little effect
on the eyes. It becomes the Bhupur through the 4 T-shaped
gates that make it 8-dimensional, representing the
8 directions of the yantra. The color of the Bhupur in
the Ganesha Yantra is green, the color of balance.

The Circle
represents space, the phenomenal world,
the dynamic cyclic forces of nature and
individual Consciousness,
created by the radius of desires.
The concentric circles center
the concentration towards the Bindu.

The 8 Lotus Petals
represent primordial nature (Prakriti)
in 5 elements and 3 Gunas.
Like individual Consciousness,
the Lotus grows in the mud
of Reality but stays pure
and detached.

Akash - Air - Fire - Water - Earth - Satvva - Rajas - Tamas

The upward-pointing triangle
that is of orange color in the Ganesha Yantra,
represents Fire and the male sap, elixir of immortality.

The six-pointed star
balances an upward pointing triangle,
respresenting male energy,
and a downward pointing triangle,
representing female energy.

The Bindu
is the central point of the Yantra and the most
powerful yantra in itself.
It represents unity, the formless Supreme Consciousness and Ganesha himself.
The point enables one to establish a relationship
with the unmanifested Reality.
