THE NINE VEDIC GEMS

 

NAVRATNAS

Planetary imbalances impact us on all the levels of our lives. Afflicted planets can lead to poor health, bad relationships, failed careers and various other obstacles in life. A trained Vedic Astrologer can often pinpoint these imbalances with an uncanny accuracy or at least unfold for us their main factors and trends of development so that we can be forewarned and prepared in advance to deal with them. Such imbalances are the product of disharmonies between the cosmic rays that come to us from the planets. When a planet in the birth chart is afflicted its ray is improperly received or distorted. Just as a plant suffers from lack of proper sunlight, so the human body and mind suffer from lack of appropriate cosmic rays through the planets. Each planet has its influences that can be helpful or harmful to our various concerns in life. According to Ancient Indian Sacred Sanskrit Vedic texts (like the "Garuda Purana", the "Graha-Gochara Jyautisha", the "Ratnapariksa", the "Brhat Samhita", the "Agni Purana" and "Mani-Mala".) one of the main methods to effectively counter planetary imbalances is the use of Vedic gems. Certain gems (The nine main Vedic gems or Navratnas mentioned earlier) have been prescribed for each planet along with their manner and timing of wearing. The gems are connected to the cosmic ray transmitted by the planet and aid us in its proper reception through our Aura and astral field to restore the integrity and vitality of our energy flow.

The above information about these divine Vedic gems has been collected from various ancient Vedic texts, books and other sources. It is a result of our years of research and experience in dealing with precious and semi-precious gemstones. The above information has also been approved from the various experienced and well known astrologers and gem therapists that we have come in contact with, in the last many years of selling gemstones. This information has been found to be the most widely accepted, trusted and effective in gems therapy by us. After getting your horoscope carefully studied by an experienced and genuine Vedic astrologer, when you have been recommended your benefic gem/gems, you should buy your gemstones only from a genuine and reliable source. The appropriate metal in which the gem should be set is also to be considered and the ring/pendant should be made by an expert in such a way that the gem’s cosmic rays reach your body (the bottom of the gem should not be covered by metal). After that, the day, time and appropriate Vedic mantras and rituals to purify and energise the stone before wearing it for the very first time is equally important. Your mental preparation and cleanliness is necessary. Select a suitable date keeping in view the DAY suggested, make note of the time of SUNRISE/SUNSET at the place you stay. This information is usually available in calendar or newspaper. After taking bath and wearing clean clothes you should purify the ring/pendant by keeping it in unboiled cow’s milk or holy Ganga water for at least an hour. After which you have to energise the gemstone, it should be done by holding the gemstone with the finger in which you have to wear it and closing your eyes you should meditate chanting the appropriate Vedic mantra for at least 108 times. Plan all these activities in such a way that you wear the gemstone at the appropriate recommended TIME. The inimical gemstones mentioned above are the gemstones which should not be worn with the main mentioned gemstone (however in only special cases after the recommendation from an experienced and learned Vedic Astrologer they can be considered). Only good quality, eye flawless clean, appropriate cutting, even colour tone, lively lustre, pure, natural, astrologically approved and potent gemstones work, if the gemstones recommended in particular sizes are not in budget then smaller sizes (which are comparatively cheaper) can be used. But if smaller sizes are also not in budget then never go for poor quality gemstones, instead the substitutes mentioned above can be used but in larger sizes (as the substitutes are milder in respective powers).
