In the Himalayan tradition, the aspirant breaks through the final barrier through Samaya Tantra and Sri Vidya, after clearing the mind through the practice of Yoga meditation as codified in the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali, and practicing self-enquiry through Vedanta. Vidya means knowing, and Sri Vidya is the highest of all aspects of knowing, as it leads to the Absolute Truth. Yantra refers to the visual form, and Sri Yantra is the form of that knowing. Central to the practices is Maha-Tripura-Sundari, the great, beautiful one, essence, consciousness, or reality that dwells in the three "cities" (tri-pura, or three cities including: gross, subtle, causal; waking, dreaming, sleeping; conscious, unconscious, subconscious). Sri (or Shri) is conceptualized as the feminine creative force of Shakti that is ultimately found to be one and the same with the static conceptualized as masculine or Shiva.
