Sanskrit syllable in the middle of this painting is Pūrnā, translated as – full, whole, complete, perfected, abundant, completely full, often referred to a full moon.

Word Yantra is also Sanskrit, meaning visual tool for meditation practices. The presence of Pūrnā Yantra connects the viewer to the spiritual energy within. It is intended to facilitate harmony to the mind, inspiration to the heart and balance to life of  those who are being exposed to it. 

The YajurVeda discusses the concept of wholeness, Pūrnā, stating that if you subtract whole from whole,  you are still left with whole. Whole still remains whole :

Om

Purnamadah Purnamidam

Purnat Purnamudachyate

Purnasya Purnamadaya

Purnamevavashisyate

– Translation –

This is whole;
That is whole;
Taking away whole from whole,
Whole still remains whole

– Or –

This is infinite that is infinite;
From That infinite this infinite comes.
From That infinite, this infinite removed;
Infinite remains infinite.
