It consists of Magic Squares of 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 selected from European, Essene, Tibetan, and Indian cultures.
The Magic Square of 3 x 3, which is the centre of the Sino (Chinese)-Tibetan Calendar, when drawn and tessellated produces the atomic structure of Diamond Lattice, confirmed by the clairvoyant chemists Charles Leadbeater and Annie Besant 100 years ago. Magic Square Art forms create whole-brain learning as the translation of Number (Left Brain / logical) into Atomic Art (Right Brain / Pattern Recognition) allowing the student to absorb this ancient knowledge subliminally.
This book was formerly known as:
THE BOOK OF HARMONY SQUARES, (ISBN:0-9594180-1-6, ed 1, size A3, perfect bound). At that time, I gave myself the artistic and intellectual licence to change the word ‘Magic Square’ to ‘Harmony Square’ due to an unusual and fearful response from some Christian based educational institutions who objected to the word “Magic” despite “Magic Squares” being part of the curriculum studies.

The Latin axiom: “e pluribus, unum” applies here, meaning: “Out of the Many, the One”. Each individual part or cell of any system, whether it be crystal or human must be honoured in respect to the Greater Whole, in all Time, in all Space, unconditionally. Notice that all the pairs around the center of the magic square of 3 have a sum of double the central cell. That is, 1 and 9 =10, 2 and 8 =10, 3 and 7 =10, 4 and 6 =10.
Our Society, locally or globally is a Magic Square displaying internal symmetry albeit hidden: each farmer, baker, tradesperson, banker or leader has its specific place in the greater scheme of the Magic Square which is Equality in all dimensions and levels: what is to the left, is the same as what is to the right, As Above, So Below, we are all connected to the Centre.

BACK COVER BLURB
It is a book whose spinal idea is that Mathematics can be Fun.
It is presented as a non-sectarian publication, but one can also classify it as omni-sectarian (“omni” meaning “all) in that all the Masters & Mistresses of Light and Love of all times are acknowledged and blessed equally.
One purpose of this book is to cross-pollinate cultural & educational groups, to build bridges rather than barriers, thru the unique symbol of the magic square whose sums of columns, rows & diagonals are equal. Occasional references are made to promote sensitivity to Environmental Harmony.
Magic Square Art, now known as Harmony Square Art is a supreme triumph of patterns (known here as Yantras) & color; many of its timeless qualities have been historically underrated in the West. Although this ancient topic is remote from European traditions, there is a renaissance happening, that has inspired Jain to prepare this book of Mathemagics to meet the creative demands of primary & high-school children & adults. He has successfully taught it at primary-schools in N.S.W & also with Kindergartens.
“I hated mathematics when I was at high-school. I never understood it ‘cos it was thrust upon me. But now, with a simple knowledge of Harmony Squareology, I have re-educated myself, I love mathematics & its internal symmetry when it is transformed into Art. Such is my Bhakti (or Devotion) & Joy in teaching & radiating It to all Children.
