    Famous Greek Philosophers Discuss Sacred Geometry

    Illustration from the book 'Understanding Sacred Geometry and the Flower of Life'.
    We can trace most of our sciences, arts and spiritual concepts, as well as political, legal, social and economic systems, back to the dozens of brilliant Philosophers in Ancient Greece. Among their most enduring contributions were Philosophy itself (literally ‘love of wisdom’), and Geometry (literally ‘measuring the Earth’, or the material world).

    Surprisingly, for such a seminal figure, virtually nothing is actually known about the man Pythagoras or his teachings. Most of what you may think you know is apocryphal. The mystical cult that he set up, and that remained active in some form for centuries, was extremely secretive. Perhaps, they were the first to mathematically prove the incredibly useful 'Pythagorean Theorem' about the sides of a right-angle triangle, but, they were not the first to discover it. It was known in Egypt and India much earlier. Probably, they discovered the first natural law based on mathematics: that musical harmony is caused by simple ratios between the length of strings, such as 1:2, 2:3, and 3:4. All we know for certain is that posterity came to attribute to them this discovery of the invisible Harmonic pattern hidden within our auditory experience, and that it opened the door to a new Ratio-nal understanding of Reality.

    Among the many brilliant thinkers in Ancient Greece, Plato and his student Aristotle are still acknowledged as exceptional for the ongoing influence of their ideas. Living two centuries after Pythagoras, they have come to represent a philosophical division regarding the relative importance of mind and matter.
    Plato was more of a mystic. He thought the ultimate Good could be attained, not by studying the ever changing phenomena of the five senses, but by studying the mental experience of eternal archetypal ‘Forms’ (Idealism). Aristotle was more practical. He recommended, instead of endlesly seeking perfection, achieving what is realistically possible, by studying the manifest physical world (Realism).
    Their argument has haunted Western society for 23 centuries and caused many to believe that spirituality and science are in opposition to each other. However, in the last century with the discovery of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity, science has become far less ‘materialistic’, and at the same time spirituality has become less ‘idealistic’ and more open to experiential and experimental investigation.
    Geometry transcends this duality, but ‘sacred geometry’ certainly leans towards the Platonic. Plato said, "there is a faculty in the mind of each of us which these studies purify and rekindle after it has been ruined and blinded by other pursuits... It is more worth preserving than any eye, since it is the only organ by which we perceive the Truth”.

    About Our Products

    SacredGeometrical.com is created by web designer, author, and sacred geometry artist Narada Dan Vantari. The 3D designs and all the other artworks here represent many years of study and creative output.

    We use 3 different POD (Print On Demand) companies, one for the 3D Geometries and Jewellery, one for the Clothing, and one for the Posters. The quality they provide is quite incredible and would not have been possible at almost any price a decade ago! Being POD means that these products are manufactured especially for your order.

    Our 3D Printed Jewellery and Models

    3D printing is a disruptive technology that is changing societies approach to manufacturing almost everything. Along with artificial intelligence and nano-engineering it will change human society as much if not more in the next decades as the computer and internet have done in the last decades!

    Our 3D prints are created as 3D computer files and uploaded to the company in New York where state of the art machines (costing around half a million $) are used to print them layer by layer of tiny dots. (Just like a 2D printer going over and over building up a form out of a stack of sheets of paper). Depending on the material the print is then put through other processes, or even used to create a mold that is then filled with the molten metal. 

    Our Sacred Geometry Clothing Designs
    (also printed on other products)

    Only in late 2018 did we discover a company that makes it possible to print full color designs on sheets of high quality fabric, laser cut the pieces, and sew them into comfortable and fashionable styles. Because the designs are printed before the item is sewn there are minimal white 'wrinkles' or flaws as seen in some other print on demand companies items.  

    The prints we have ordered for ourselves have instantly become our favourite items of clothing. The colors are intense, colourfast, and remarkably true to what we see on our monitor, and even the first wash has absolutely minimal discoloration of the water! 


    We offer a range of fabrics. To learn more about them go to our Fabrics page here.

    Our Sacred Geometry Inspired Posters

    We are only selling posters where the quality for reproducing our artwork is superb. The saturation of the colors on the matte paper is far richer and softer than what you would get on glossy photo paper.  

    Soon we hope to add canvas and silk printing to our offerings :-)

    Our Other Sacred Geometry Items

    We could not resist sourcing some other educational and entertaining items such as magnet kits and geometry stands. These are sourced from a variety of suppliers, and we ask your patience as we discover which suppliers are reliable enough to work with. Mostly we offer these products as a service to our customers to inspire you to learn more, and appreciate more, the subtle but profound effect that the pure geometries have on our consciousness and in our lives. The ancient Greeks believed that geometry existed before the creation of the Universe and that they provide a connection back to the Eternal. They were certainly 'on to something' !  :-)
