Yoni

by Micha F. Lindemans
The origin or primal source of all being. It is represented by a triangle with its apex pointing downward, signifying female sexual organ, particularly the vulva, which in turn symbolizes the mystery of the cosmos. This symbol, by itself of conjoined with the ling, is venerated by the Shaktas (the worshippers of Shakti). Literally "womb, origin, source."
