Sri Chakra Poorna Maha Meru

In Hindu mythology Goddess Shakti is personified as the Sri Chakra Poorna Maha Meru. At Chennai Om Sri Skandasramam, the four deities face the 4 cardinal directions and in front of them, at the centre, is installed the Sri Chakra Poorna Maha Meru in Panchaloka and is 5 ½ feet in height. It is believed that all the devathas have emerged from the Meru and that Goddess Shakti herself resides in the form of Shrividhya at the Bindu (top of the Meru).
