"... tantra, as you know very well, is the mechanism of Kundalini, and the yantra is the Kundalini itself, is the machine."
H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Shri Kundalini Puja 1992
"Mantra means, what mantras to be said to raise the Kundalini, I mean to open your centers. Tantra means the mechanism, the mechanics or you can say the technique and Yantra means the mechanism. But this is after Realization."
