**#9 Correspondence between the
inner Tree of Life and the Sri Yantra
**

Remarkable parallels exist between the 3-dimensional Sri Yantra and the seven enfolded regular polygons of each half of the inner Tree of Life. The central triangle of the Sri Yantra comprises three vertices, three edges & one triangle, whilst its four sets of triangles consist of 84 vertices, 126 edges & 42 triangles, that is, 252 geometrical elements. Including the central point, there are 260 points, lines & triangles. Compare this with the fact that the seven enfolded polygons have 260 yods outside the root edge when their 47 sectors are turned into tetractyses. As a corner of the triangle is the centre of the hexagon and as a corner of the pentagon is the centre of the decagon, only five of the centres of the seven polygons do not coincide with their corners. They are shown as black yods. The outer corner of the triangle and the top and bottom of the hexagon coincide with Sephiroth on the Pillar of Mercy of the Tree of Life. They, too, are denoted as black yods. The eight black yods correspond to the eight geometrical elements in the central triangle and central point. The 252 coloured yods correspond to the 252 geometrical elements making up the 42 triangles of the 3-dimensional Sri Yantra that surround these eight elements.
