In this article we’re going to have a detailed look at the Yant Sumred design, the meanings and different elements it includes
The Meaning of Yant Sumred
Let’s get straight to the meaning behind the Yant Sumred design
Sak Yant designs are beautiful visually
But they are so much more than just pretty designs
The Sak Yant tradition goes back for centuries, and each design has been created with a specific meaning and purpose in mind
This Yant embodies the essence of success and achievement
It’s believed to provide its wearer with an aura of success and accomplishment that touches all aspects of their life.
The power of the Yant Sumred lies in its ability to open doors, break down barriers, and help the wearer achieve their goals and dreams
If you decide to get this design tattooed, you can consider it your personal emblem of success, gently guiding you on a journey of prosperity and victory
The Different Elements in the Yant Sumred Design
Now that we understand a little more of the meaning behind the design
Let’s have a look at some of the different elements included in it
Sacred Buddhist emblems like the unalome in the Yant Samred design serve as metaphorical guides towards enlightenment
The journey, reflected in the intricate winding of the unalome, isn’t a linear progression
On this path, you’ll encounter various trials and tribulations, which may even cause a slight regression before moving forward
The line straightening out towards the end signifies the attainment of enlightenment, characterized by a mind and spirit free from the haze of ignorance
In the Yant Samred design, unalome symbols are arranged in two distinct directions – vertical and horizontal
A vertically aligned unalome is symbolic of a person’s journey to reach an elevated state of spirituality
In contrast, a horizontally set unalome signifies the challenges of maintaining spiritual growth with the distractions and experiences happening in the physical world
With both directions represented, the Yant Samred design encapsulates a dual journey towards spiritual enlightenment
It emphasizes that through spiritual ascension (vertical) and living through worldly experiences (horizontal), we can achieve our quest for enlightenment
At the heart of the design, you’ll notice an array of lines and circles
These basic yet impactful elements bring in aspects of the “mandala” to the design
These patterns are traditionally considered to be charged with a special and powerful energy that magnetizes success and prosperity

What Position on the Body can the Yant Sumred Design be Tattooed?
The traditional position for the Yant Sumred design to be tattooed is on the upper back, just under the neckline
However, this doesn’t mean you can’t get it tattooed somewhere else!
There is really only one rule:
In Buddhist belief, the lower part of the body is “unclean”
This means that Sak Yant designs should only be tattooed from the waist upwards
Out of respect for Thai culture, as well as protecting our customers from people that may feel upset to see a Sak Yant design tattooed below the waist, we only tattoo these designs from the waist up
But don’t be put off!
Thai people and Buddhists the world over are usually very proud to see someone with a Sak Yant tattoo
So just make sure you follow this basic rule, and you should find nothing but smiles when you show people your tattoo
What is the Writing in the Yant Sumred design? What Does it Mean?
The script and letting in the Yant Sumred design isn’t exactly “writing” as we would usually know it
The language it is written in is called Khom
Khom, born from the ancient Brahmi script, is an integral element of Sak Yant tattoos, including the Yant Sumred
Its roots trace back to the sacred scriptures of Buddhism and Hinduism across various regions, including Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and parts of Vietnam
This is why you’ll often see designs including this script in temples throughout the region
This script is included in the design by the Ajarn, who is a Sak Yant master
It is usually written in a form of “code”, the meaning of which is passed down from Master to Apprentice over generations
Our Yant Sumred design has been sourced from and checked by prominent Ajarns
So while we can’t tell you exactly what it “says”, we are able to tell you what the meaning is
When you compare modern Thai script and Khom, the differences are striking
Though both emerged from the same Brahmi root, centuries of evolution have shaped modern Thai script into a unique system of writing, distinct in visual appeal and usage rules
Yet, Khom retains its relevance in the traditional and ceremonial, including Sak Yant
It’s more than an inscription – it’s a spiritual link connecting the wearer to the cultural richness, history, and spiritual vitality embedded within
