According to President Bidya Devi Bhandari, the facets of the 'Shree Yantra' by architect and architect of national flag of the country, Shankar Nath Rimal, are evident proofs of oriental philosophy.

The architectural designs are country's cultural assets, President Bhandari said, adding that 'Shreeyantra', the creation by designer Rimal, is a result of thorough research.

President Bhandari said it during a program organized by Sashi-Shankar Art School at President's office, Shital Niwas on Saturday. With the tradition that the religious and cultural heritages including Pashupatinath Temple and Taleju Bhawani Temple are decorated with Shree Yantra, it is clear that Shree Yantra is a cultural symbol, she reminded.

According to her, Rimal has blended ancient religion and modern engineering. 

Commenting on the book Swami Ramanand Giri said Shree Yantra is the symbol of Shiva and power. It is the major form of creation, existence and destruction. It has been worshipped since the Rigved era. Rimal's finding of geometrical ratio with the use of Shree Yantra in years is rewarding, he observed.
