I went to visit my teacher Yogi Bhajan in the hospital around 1992 in Stanford, CA. First thing when I came through the door – he said ﾝYou must create crossed battle axes with the adi shakti! ﾝ What does it represent sir? – I asked. ﾝI am Infinite, ﾝ he replied.

Helps overcome fear of taking action or fear of doing the wrong thing. A symbol of the warm vitalizing and positive energy of the earth. When used in meditation it can help one understand how to bring a concept into being. Can assist those who procrastinate or are unable to decide on a course of action.
