GEMS AND RUDRAKSHA RECOMMENDATION AND INSTRUCTIONS
There are primarily four types of remedial in Vedic Astrology to word off the evil effects of malefic planets or enhance the good effect of benefits of your horoscope. These are: * wearing a lucky gemstone * Performing a specific pooja reciting a specific mantra gap. * Acquiring a real/yantra * Donating the articles of the specific planet. Brief of each of the remedial is below Astrology is a science of Stars It deals with nine planets; namely, Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. The movements of these planets and their locations at the time, date and place of birth of a person can be ascertained scientifically through mathematical astrology, correctly computed “Horoscope”. The deductions logically drawn through scientific analysis of a “Horoscope” have by now proved themselves worthy of confidence amongst all the nations and religions of the world. A person can now correctly learn and know about his acquired destiny in advance through the processes of astrology. The invisible, all powerful force (we may call it God, Allah, Lord Shiva or by any other sacred name of our Guru or deity of our faith) that gives life and take it away without our prior consultation, has written clearly what we want to know, in our “Birth Chart”. Human body is a very complex engine, specially created and adapted for a well planned specific purpose. What is that specific purpose and what lies hidden in future of a person? The knowledge of ‘Science of Planets’ through deep and scientific study of a ‘Horoscope’ venture to answer these queries well in advance. Deep and careful study of a ‘Horoscope’ of a person would show that certain planets in his ‘horoscope’ are favourably placed, some are unfavourable and the other give mixed results. The placement and strength of each planet and their positive or negative effects may be got determined from a competent astrologer at the earliest, preferably starting with a child as the astrology also provides preventive remedies to negate the negative effects of malefic planets. Wisdom lies in preventing a wrong or failure before it occurs. An astrologer, if consulted in time, could have told the sons and daughters in advance as to in what sphere in life were they best fitted to achieve success in life according to their cosmic design appearing in their “birth chart”. Similarly, marriage of those, who were not destined to live together in matrimonial alliance, could have been prevented, if consulted in time. A competent Astrologer, could even pre-inform a person, about a disease, from which that person was likely to suffer in his future life. In that case preventive measures could have been taken and the ailment could either be averted or its effect lessened. The unfavourably placed planets in a “Horoscope” causes imbalance in one’s life. They adversely effect his health and brain. His life becomes miserable and full of obstacles. He leads distressed life full of tension. He groans under illhealth and acute poverty. Many a time his heart goes to commit even an unpardonable sin of committing suicide.
Answer is ‘Yes’. To much extent. The science of planets claim that it can save such a person from the bad effects of his unfavorable planets. According to it, the Almighty has made us free agents, capable always to change our destiny, if we earnestly strive to do so, with full confidence and determination.
Astrology strongly believe that ‘Meditation’ of God of our faith is the best remedy for curing the evil effects of our unfavorable planets. Spiritual science begins where worldly science ends. Religion starts where reason stops. Meditation includes repetition of special mantras, pooja or yagyas at religious places, donations, penance and such other pious and sacred activities in life. It also helps in getting the maximum benefits of the otherwise weak but favorable planets of your ‘birth chart’.
According to astrology the purpose of wearing gem is chiefly to pacify/appease the malefic planets and or to strengthen the weak planets which are otherwise favourable to get maximum benefit out of them. Selection of a particular gem for a particular person for achieving specific purpose is not an easy task. Those gems or jewels are never prescribed which are meant for the planets posited low in the houses or those planets posited as Lord in the 6 th , 8 th and 12 th houses or those other planets which would be death-inflicting ones. If anyone do so, he would definitely taste failures and damages. Gems are always to be prescribed following the glare of the planets or say, the influence of the planets. To do so an experienced Astrologer, would first find out where the favourable planet is posited and which houses are under its favourable influence. It would be doubly fruitful if particular gems are prescribed according to the condition of the planets position in the houses found in the ‘Horoscope’.Gems must be got anointed before they are worn.That will give better result.According to the science of stars, generally the gems are to be prescribed according to the degree of the planets. But during the old age and dead conditions of the native no gem of a planet remains active and kicking.In short, to wear a gem is to add the energy of the planet related to the gem. If a planet is badly effected, and a gem is worn to strengthen it, it would only add to one’s problems. Enemy planet, if given strength, would do more harm. Gem must be worn in a finger fixed for it and that too on a specific day. Hence it is always suggested and advised that no one should wear a gem/jewel without prior consultation of a gem therapist or a good Astrologer
According to Astrology, good health and sound mental power of a person are necessary for long, healthy and prosperous life. The unfavorable planets in the birth chart of a person makes a man unhealthy and weakens his mental power. So according to the science of planets, the bad effects of malefic planets in the birth chart can also be dispelled or averted with the help of physical and medical science. It includes yoga, Pranayam, use of Ayurvedic medicine and even wearing of certain particular gem to keep oneself bodily fit and mentally strong. Experiences have shown that some gems have wonderful healing power. There are twelve houses in everybody’s birth chart. Each house represent different part of the human body as is shown below:- Planets when afflicted, ailments manifest themselves in those parts of the body indicated by each planets position by sign, decree and the house afflicted of birth chart. Our body is controlled and governed by Cosmic rays of different colours. The stone is prescribed keeping in view the deficiency or excess of a particular ray in the body. Now an Astrologer can also be consulted for prescribing an auspicious gem for an individual at a certain time of his life and for a particular disease. However, it is better to use gems as a second line of defence and use medicine also for getting fast recovery of health.
Gems are of five types 1. Divine gems. Acquired from divine power. 2. Organic gems:- Created from the body of living creatures iii) Metamorphic gems:-Found from under the earth, mines, quarries iv) Sedimentary gems:- Created from the sediments. v) Chemical gems: created by chemical processes in Laboratories. Now-a- days chemical gems are being dealt in mostly in gems and jewelry market because natural gems are rare and very expensive and even cannot be easily distinguished from the artificial or chemical gems.
