Goddess Lalita Tripura Sundari
Tripura is the ultimate, primordial Shakti, the light of manifestation. She, the pile of letters of the alphabet, gave birth to the three worlds. At dissolution, She is the abode of all tattvas, still remaining herself - Vamakeshvaratantra The tantrik tradition views its symbols as having a gross aspect, a subtle aspect, and a supreme aspect. In terms of Lalita, the gross form is the image of the Goddess with her four arms and so forth, the subtle form is as yantra, and the supreme form is her mantra, all three being the Goddess in different aspects. Lalita means she who plays.
All creation, manifestation and dissolution are considered to be a play of Devi or the Goddess. Mahatripurasundari is her name as transcendent beauty of the three cities, a description of the Goddess as conqueror of the three cities of the demons. The different parts or petals and lines of the yantra are usually arranged in concentric circles (mandalas) and contain rays or sub-limbs of Devi. The Shree Yantra has nine of these mandals, each filled with various aspects of the Devi. In Shree Yantra there are 111 aspects. The Shree Yantra is said to be a geometric form of the human body, which implies that Goddess as Macrocosm is one with human being as Microcosm.
