Brahmanda Guruji gave us the information on how to draw Nandishwara Yantra in his Bruhat Brahmanda programme telecasted in Zee Kannada while speaking on Nandishwara vratha. We will start this with reciting "OM MAHA NANDISWARAYA NAMAHA".
- At the centre put Om in Sanskrit i.e ॐ.
- Towards left, right, top and bottom put Om in Kannada i.e ಓಂ.
- After putting these five Om's draw a circle around it.
- After drawing the circle put an square and draw swastika ( is an equilateral cross with its arms bent at right angles, in either right-facing (卐) form or its mirrored left-facing (卍) form ) in four corners between circle and the square.
- Now draw Trisula in four corners of the square.
- Put One Sanskrit Sri i.e श्री to all sides of the square.
- This completes Nandishwara Yantra. You should put this in rice flour only.
श्री should be put in turmeric.
ॐ should be put in Vermilion (Kumkuma).
ಓಂ should be put in rice flour.
Swastika should be put in Sandal powder (Chandana).
