is your view on Navaratna Rings?
nine stone ring or the navaratna ring in my view is extremely
unscientific in that the gems are exceptionally small and very
seldom touch the skin. They are at best a token of respect
to the seemingly lost science of genuine navaratnas that actually
make a difference.
rings can cost from $40 to $190 depending on the stones, but
generally the gems are always well under a quarter of a carat
each. The gems are so tiny that even if they had very good skin
contact, the electromagnetic radiations from the gems simply could
not enhance a transfer of benign energy large enough to significantly
affect your karmic magnetism.
rings have become popular in India amongst a few because they
are eminently inexpensive and the salespeople will sell the idea
that good fortune comes from wearing them. I have never witnessed
this from the many I have met who have worn them.
a magnet is to have an effect it works best touching the metal
gems, their subtle energy is so slight to the feelings of the
average person that for response, I generally insist on the largest
area of the gem set touching the skin which often means setting
the gem upside down. I emphasize this even though it costs me
sales due to the many customers who insist on the beauty of the
cut gems being highly visible. However I have no choice as I
have had testimonials from clients who have worn these
gems both ways. The gems work much more powerfully when they
have the very best skin contact with the largest area touching
Sri Yukteswar in the spiritual classic "Autobiography of
a Yogi" was quoted by Paramahansa Yogananda as saying
"Electrical and magnetic radiations are ceaselessly circulating
in the universe; they affect man's body for good and ill. Ages
ago our rishis pondered the problem of combating the adverse effects
of subtle cosmic influences. The sages discovered that pure metals
emit an astral light which is powerfully counteractive to negative
pulls of the planets. Certain plant combinations were also found
to be helpful. Most effective of ally are faultless jewels of not
less than two carats.
practical preventive uses of astrology have seldom been seriously
studied outside of India. One little known fact is that the proper
jewels, metals and plant reparations are valueless unless the
required weight is secured and unless the remedial agent is worn
next to the skin."
cost is a serious factor then I would recommend a necklace with
as many good quality gems that are of crystal origin along with
the pearl and coral. But make sure it is balanced. Another wonderful
necklace is the rudraksha mala.
