any instrument or machine

  • "any instrument or machine" (i.e. that which is controlled or controls. For instance the body is said to be a yantra[5])
  • "any instrument for holding, restraining, or fastening" (for instance a symbol which 'holds' the essence of a concept, or helps the mind to 'fasten' on a particular idea)
  • "a mystical or astronomical diagram" (usually a symbol, often inscribed on an amulet) sometimes said to possess mystical or magical powers.
