Where the Gems are found Part II

Photo Source :
(A) The ancient faiths that the following gems had indeed formed the Demon King Wali's body, and turned into gems and jewels after he was crushed to pieces by the strike of Lord Indra:-
1. Diamonds - came out from the forehead of the demon king, Wali.
2. Pearls - These came out from the psyche of the demon king.
3. Rubies - These were produced from the blood of the demon king.
4. Emeralds - These were created from the bile of the demon chief.
5. Corals - These were created from the blood drops that fell into the sea waters.
6. Yellow Sapphires - These are the produce of his flesh.
7. Blue Sapphires - These are created from the eye balls of the demon king.
8. Moon-Stones - were formed from other parts of the eyes of the demon leader.
9. Heassonites - are considered to have been the fats in the demon king's body.
10.Turquoise - It was believed that these gems were created from the veins and fibres of the demon king's body.
11. Cat's Eye - These were created from the sacred thread of the demon king at the time when his body was being pierced to pieces by the gods.
12. Bheeshshma Pashshan - These gems were created from the semen drops of the demon.
13. Masar Mani - These were created from the excreta of the demon king.
14. Lapis Lajuli - These were created from the hair of the demon king.
15. Ulook Manis - These came out from the tongue of the demon king.
16. Touch-Stones - When the demon king's chest burst open at the strike by the gods, the touch-stones were instantaneously created soon as the chest dropped on the ground.
17. Crystals - These were created out of the sweat drops of the demon king.
18. Upalak Mani - These gems were believed to have been created from the deposit of cough inside the demon king's lungs.
19. Bheeshshmaks - It was believed that after his head was severed, these gems were created from fore part of his brain.
20. Taila Mani - These were believed to have been created from the skin of the demon king.
21. Ghreeta Mani - These were believed to have been created from the belly of the demon.These gems are also known as the Karkoutook, in Indian parlance.
According to the Indian mythology, all the gems and jewels mentioned above have the source of their origin in the body of the demon king, and had been grown gradually by the nature. It was believed even in ancient times that after the king Wali had fallen down on the ground seriously wounded, and soon as the body parts started getting broken and separated, these gems emerged as the symbol of the victory of the gods over the demons. The suggestion might easily be discarded or ignored by the scientific mind, yet there are one genuine truth which none could ever discount, and that is- these gems and jewels have some kind of the innate supra-sensitive powers which can affect man, and which can be put to proper benefits used by the man.

(B) Some pundits considered that the ancient righteous Atharvedee sage Dadhichi was approached by the gods when they were threatened of their existence by the demons. On their appeal as laid down by Lord Indra, the self-negating saint, decided to forsake his own life so that the gods could make use of his bones-considered to be the most powerful in three worlds owing to their austerely harnessed virtuosity. That is exactly what had convinced people in the ancient times, that the bones of Dadhich were the sources of the powerful gems and jewels for the gods, and later for the humans.

(C) However, the scientific minded people always considered the earth being the real source of all the gems and jewels that today humans use.

Where the Gems are found

Out of the thirty eight synonyms that earth has been mentioned in Amarkosh,
the great Sanskrit dictionary, three- Vasudhaa, Vasumati and Ratnagarbha- are cyclical giving the same effects to mean that the earth bears gems in her womb.
According to ancient hearsay about how the gems indeed were found, there came in the Indraloka- the Heaven- the king of the underworld demons, Wali. He wanted to conquer the Heaven and win over all the Gods. There he was accosted by the
commander-in-chief for the gods,Indra, who was masquerading as an innocent Brahmin seeking to find an animal for propitiation. Indra
pleaded with him to become the animal for the sacrifice as he was not getting any that day, which meant his yagna were destined to go fruitless. Wali accepted the plea playfully knowing fully well that his body was invincible.However, Indra knew that naturally very well, hence he did not strike the demon king on his body but hurled his thunder, vajra, on his weakest part, the head. The demon-king was shattered into pieces of gems, all because he was a unique creature by himself, immensely powerful, and armed with arduous karma, good effects too.
It is said in the mythology, that from the bones of the demon king Wali,were found Diamonds, from his teeth the pearls, from his blood drops ruby, from the gallbladder emerald, from his eyes came out blue sapphires, from the juice of his heart came bright blue lapis lajuli, from his bone marrow appeared karketan, from his nails appeared Lapis lajuli and Cat's eye, from his body fat came out rock-crystal, from his flesh came out coral, from his skin appeared yellow sapphire, and from his semen appeared a type of gems called Bheeshma. From these gems, empowered from the host's body, Sun took away the ruby, Moon picked up pearls, Mars took away coral, Mercury chose emeralds, Jupiter picked up yellow sapphire, Venus took diamonds, Saturn preferred for himself blue sapphire, Rahu took away zircon and Ketu lifted the Lapis lajuli. That is exactly why, when the humans wear these gems in person, they don't get affliction from the respective planets. The quality gems always bestow success, bliss and happiness while the defective or impure gems end up giving poverty only. Reference to the demon king Wali and the emergence of gems and jewels was also made by Varahamihira.Photo

Characteristics of the Gems & their forms

A "Nava Ratna" talisman set with nine perfect gems. In the center is a 95% flawless "red lotus"colored 1 carat Burmese RUBY surrounded(clockwise from the top) by flawless diamond, flawless "natural" pearl, flawless red coral, flawless hessonite, flawless blue sapphire, flawless cat's eye, flawless yellow sapphire, and flawless tsavorite.

According to the Amarkosh the gems are the unique creation among matters which enchants every creature on earth.
That means, it is gems which enchants every creature on earth and which is the best in all aspects among all matters.Among humans,the best person,endowed with highest qualities are called ratna,however,as a compliment.In the Rig Veda ratna has been used thrice,as saptaratna,that is,seven gems.However,whenever gems have been used it has been inferred as things to be worn as amulets.No wonder,hence,the gems were used to wear in chains round the neck like we wear talismans during the Vedic times,predominantly to quell the evil effects.

This is exactly what even Varahamihira used to advocate for.He used to expound that the words such as nararatna,gajaratna,ashwaratna,streeratna(that means,humans as useful as gems,elephants as gems,horses as gems and wife as a gem)were used to mean the collection of human forces all gems to preserve,protect and keep.However,in Vrihatsamhita,the word ratna has been used to mean thunder,mani(jewels) to mean stones etcetera.

The process of stopping bad luck & the ways as to how the evil effects of the stars can be dispelled

If one has low mount of certain planet in his palm,he should put on a ring,purified by the tantra discipline.The ring should have yantras(talismans)that would pacify the unfavourable planet and should be worn in the finger whereon the planet's effect would be absolute.That will turn his luck favourable.
Accordingly,for pacifying the Sun,15 amulets made of gold should be put on,for pacifying the Moon 18 in silver,for Mars 21 in gold,for Mercury 24 in the tridhatu(alloy of three metals),for Jupitar 27 in gold,for Venus 30 in silver,to satiate Saturn 33 in iron or tridhatu,for the Rahu(Caput Draconis)36 in tridhatu and for Ketu(Cauda Draconis)39 in tridhatu should be worn.


For Jupitar the index finger is considered the most suitable,for Saturn,Rahu,and ketu it is the middle finger,for Sun and Mars it is always the ring finger,for Mercury and Moon the little finger.If one needs to cover the shortcomings because of the depressed mounts of two or three planets then he should wear a ring made of seven metal alloy on his ring or the middle finger.

These luck-booster rings are unique specimens to bring in good results all by themselves.In changing a human's ill luck into blissful one.The unfavourable planets become favourable once these are worn in person,and man finds himself blessed with wealth,fame,a progeny and such good results.All the hurdles that were stopping his good times,soon are removed to bring success in the life of the native.However, the job is easier said than done.These rings should be made at auspicious moments under thorough observation of the process in Tantra and Vedic disciplines according to their basic tenets.
If one wears such a ring,with a devout heart and in nonchalant faith, his aspiration can be fulfilled within three days,or three fortnights or at best within three months .Such a ring cures a patient miraculously of a chronic disease.But one must not remove it from his finger even for a moment within the 90 days once it is put on.The ring must be put on person on the day assigned to the planet,at the right auspicious moment.If miraculous results are aspired, then such rings should be purified by Rudrabhisheka(Lord Shiva's empowerment)on the day of Pushya constellation (ruled by Saturn).Of course,while in toilet such rings should be detached from the body.

Application after wearing the ring in the assigned finger:

Soon after getting up from the bed the native rub his palms forcefully for some time so that these are flushed up enough to make all-even the minute-lines visible,and staring at the life,heart and the luck lines should recite the following mantra:

kauragrey vasatey lakshmi,kaurau mauddhye saraswati
kaurau mooley tu Govindaha,probhaatey kaurau-daurshaunam

That means,at the fore front of the palm,within the line of wealth resides Goddess Lakshmi.In the middle of the palm,on the brain line resides Goddess Saraswati.In the wrist on its centre resides the God Himself(Lord Govinda).If a man stares at the palm daily while saying prayers for his choice deity,observes his favoured ring,his courage grows everyday, the evil effects of the planet withers gradually and the unfavourable time turns into favourable one soon.

As one's look is put under restraint by checking it up at the mirror everyday,similarly,if one examines the lines in his palms everyday,his luck favours himselfgradually.That is a tested fact.

If the horoscope of the afflicted is also available along side his palms,it becomes comparatively easy to foretell remedies for his difficult times.For him it is advisable that he should wear a gem to protect his life and another to boost his fateline in a combination ring.Such combination creates the benefic,of what is called in astrology,Gajakesari Yoga(A person born of such a moment is wise,intelligent,qualified and the king's favourite.Such a yoga takes place when Jupitar is in a quadrant to Moon, or when the three benefics,such as Mercury, Jupitar and Venus aspect Moon and the aspecting planet,Moon, is neither a combust nor has debilitating factors.)Similarly, the combination of pearl and coral form the Lakshmi Yoga which eventually removes poverty,or Daridra Yoga(time of poverty,destitution and affliction).Many times the combination gems function miraculously.However,this should not be forgotten that the combination gems would not be effective until the ring is purified and energised according to the native's name and gotra(lineage).


If the heart line, life line and the brain line are malefic,the afflicted is ailing,with expectancy of survival the least,the astrologer goes for Mahamrityunjay applications in such conditions.The recovery locket is hung around his or her neck as a talisman,which soon starts funtioning and the native recovers.


If the native wants to win over some choice person,a man or a girl,it is advisable that the person should make two prototype rings on a Friday, get it purified by the mantra through enchantment(Vashikaran Mantra), then one of the rings the person should wear and the other should be worn by the desired. These rings are luck-boosters,both would fall in deep love.In a different perspective,for proper care-taking these rings can also be worn by a female seeking friendship of another female or by a male to another.


If one desires to win over a handsome or a beautiful partner in life then he or she should wear a ring studded with a diamond weighing 5and a 1/4 ratti(that means,it should weigh 2+1/4 grains X 5+1/4= 11+1/8 grains).As diamonds are highly expensive,one can go for the white Zircon(American Diamond).Diamond is highly attractive and enchanting.A women,whose match is becoming difficult to fix,should be given to wear a purified diamond ring on a Friday,at an auspicious moment.Diamond empowers Venus and the procreative energy in both the male and the female grows.Diamond must always be studded in silver or platinum or white metal.


If there is conjugal discord between a man and his wife,the yellow sapphire(it should weigh 2+1/4 grains X 5+1/4 = 11+1/8 grains)must always be worn in person on a Thursday after the ring is purified by the required mantra.If the yellow sapphire cannot be bought then the Topaz would do for it. The yellower be the sapphire,more pleasant would be the conjugal relations.Those natives whose marriage line is distorted must necessarily wear such a ring.The gem is also benefic for children or a blissful family life,besides,turning intelligence into religiosity.

I know a case of a lady.she had come to my Guruji Mr.Dwivedi for suggestions.She had a very strainuous relation with her husband,even had weak relation with other members in her family.In her palm the Mars was positioned high.She had worn a coral ring.It came out during the conversation that her husband was oppressive and rigid in behaviour.He wanted to dominate over her and that was the genesis of their daily conflicts.She also revealed that her husband was a Mangalik(one who is born under the influence of Mars)and also wore a coral studded ring.A native born under the influence of the planet Mars must never wear coral ring or anything that has coral in it,or the Mars in his life would be highly powerful and would dominate everything he did.The same day,Guruji removed the coral from both of them and made them wear yellow sapphire.They led a happy life ever after.


If the fate line is distortedin one's palm,the wealth line does not exist and if he always suffers from poverty,such a native should wear a benefic ring,as is suggested in the Sharda-Tilak,in Tantra discipline :

Taarataamra subarnaarka shhorha shankheyndubhih
Pushyarkey ghatikaa mudri rheen daaridraya nashini.

That means,copper weighing sixteen ratti(one ratti is equivalent to 2+1/4 grains,and 1 grain = 0.065 gram), silver 12 ratti,gold 10 ratti-all three mixed in a ring should be made at the auspicious moment of the pushya constellation and worn after purified in mantra would slowly remove any kind of poverty from life,all loans would be repaid.It is tried and tested.In the terminology of religion such a ring is called Pavitri.


On conditions when the line of Saturn is distorted or depressed in one's palms, or one's sure results get faulted by obstacles,rise of enemies occur for no honest reasons and the difficulties dog him constantly,then on one Saturday he should fetch an iron piece slipped or broken or dropped from a black horse's hoof,keep it from one Saturday to another dipped in oil from sesamum kernel,then on the Pushya constellation's Saturday curve a ring out of it.If such a ring is worn,after purifying it through mantra,at an auspicious moment in the middle finger,all the hazards because of an unfavourable Saturn vanishes.For such a native the Saturn turns out to be gainful influence.This too is tried and tested experience.


If a child is much fickle than natural but dull,nor attentive to his studies,unmindful to elder's guidance, a disordered and a trouble creator,also has the brain line in his palm distorted,then such a child should be given a Moon-pearl locketted chain around his neck.That would bring peace in his mind.The child's brain would be in control.According to the tenets of the shastras the moon rears children like a mother and guards them against all accidents.Hence, the Moon-pearl, also if given along with a talisman would bring great benefits to the children of such mental conditions.


There are four reasons for that,these are :
1.The upper portion of a human,above the naval region,is pious.
2.The mystic power in the gems studded in rings becomes ineffective when the hand tackling human wastes and excreta or the food left-overs come in contact with the ring.
3.The application of the mystic power of the mantras is possible in a locket,as a ring cannot accommodate both the gem and talisman.
4.While taking the bath,the water trickles down the body after dousing the locket,which in some way completes the gem-bath.The bath such as this ensures much peace in the afflicted human.A locket consists of three powers,an amulet,the mantra and the tantra or the mystic power,all work in a synergy.Hence,the pendulum that is the locket which can hang from one's neck will definitely ensure better results.

This post is dadicated to my Guruji Dr.Bhojraj Dwivedi from whom I learn all these wonderful thing.

How to dispel the evil effects & correct defects in destiny

A record selling price for Ruby was set at christie's in St.Moritz on February 15 when an 8.62 carat cushion-cut ruby realized a price of $ 425,000 per carat.This record-breaking gemstone was termed the desired "Pigeon's Blood" red used for highly sought rubies from Burma.The winning bid, totaling $ 3.6 million dollars was placed by Laurence Graff a London jeweler.

The foundation of one's destiny and dispelling the effects of evil planets lies in Aasthaa Chikitsa(faith treatment). Every human has some religious place or sanctum to fall back upon at the times of dire consequences, such as a temple, a mosque, a church, a gurudwara, a place of pilgrimage, or even mantra-rituals, wearing a talisman or a ring, or a totem or doing a witchcraft or something hereditary in family, driven by the belief that it would dispel the evil effects on him of the unfavourable planets.An astrologer must always seek help from the afflicted human's aasthaa kendra that is the centre of his faith, and accordingly his treatment should progress. Only that would help the process of treatment to be fruitful.

While suggesting the treatment process to an afflicted human, his or her capacity to spend should be in your mind.Suppose a man earns two or three thousand rupees per month but is advised to buy a ring studded with diamond of a quarter and five ratti(that means 2+1/4 grains x 5+ 1/4 =11+18 grains and 1 grain = 0.065 gram) that will be too much for him to bear. He should be prescribed a Zircon-ring. Similarly, if the prescription is for wearing a yellow sapphire, which is quite costly and not easily available. One could be advised to wear Topaz instead. These days, the metal-touch has been in vogue in place of the semi-precious stones.


The natural gems have gone so scarce and expensive these days that people seldom can manage to acquire them. This apart, there is no guarantee that even after paying the required cost, one would end up getting the real natural gems and not the duplicated or imitation of them. Even the established jeweller gets cheated in these days of chemical artificiality. Trying to get astrological benefit by using the metal-touch in the body,has become rather more useful to an ordinary man.

The lines on the palms signify what go on in the conscious and unconscious mind of the afflicted, and if negative forces therein are left uncontrolled then accidents might occur in the near future. In the bio-chemic therapeutic discipline, the German scientists attach the birth-star to the system of Astrology and the therapy through it, the zodiac sign and the month of birth. Their contention is, such and such persons having born in such and such month are likely to be prone to such and such diseases, and hence, considering the congenital influence of the stars at the hour of birth, they should be administered or advised such and such therapies for total cure. We, therefore, find that to correct a defect in the lines on a palm the treatment should follow homoeopathic therapy along side wearing gems purified mantras, talisman and the chants of divine-bliss daily. These may also need to be adjuvented by wearing the luck-booster rings. Renowned German scientist Dr. Schusler had discovered the bio-chemic process of therapy is based on pure science. Foundation of the science is upon twelve salts in human body, any deficiency in which would ail the physique and fulfilling which would immediately put it in order. These medicines are free from any side effects and are used in such miniscule dosage that millions of doctors in almost all countries in the world have already been benefited. Even if a healthy person takes any of these salts, he or she would remain healthy, and no adverse side effect would happen to them. These salts can also be administered into an ailing person along with other therapy, the ailment would rather be cured fast.

Does one's luck favour after wearing a gem ?

Does one's luck favour after wearing a gem?

The Rig Veda,which is the oldest book written by man on earth,has mentioned the word Ratna,in its first sloka,called mantra.The gems are such adored world over that people of all religions,languages and communities have always been enchanted by the marvellous utilities of them,down the ages.

Some questions that dog the mind are:Does wearing a gem remove afflictions or diseases from one's life? Is the practice of wearing gems on person a religious process or is it ordained by religions? Or is it only a social habit? Or is it an expression of flaunting one's riches?

Irony is,the thought process on human afflictions and diseases in Ayurveda and Astrology is much profound and modern science will have to traverse long stages to equate that.According to Ayurveda and Astrology,reasons behind the human ailments are not considered to be the bacteria alone,but also the effects of the actions in one's lifetime,which is called karmaja.It is said:"Poorvajanma Kritang paapong byadhi rupena baadhitaa".That means the sins acquired from the previous lifetime reappear during the present life in from of diseases,chronic wounds or misfortune the Ayurveda and the Astrology give credence to curse,boon,blessings,prayers,and wearing of gems or precious stones because of their innate invisible power which is often well-acknowledged as devine actions.Hence,such prescriptions are recognised as remedies as,doing penance,mental or vocal repetition of mantras,rituals and rules,donations and pious activities during the lifetime.The tenets of these two disciplines are:if medicines through science could have cured all human afflictions then no body would ever have died in the society,and man would have become immortal today.However, that is not the case.

Explains the Vejashya ratnabali in its Chapter-1/sloka 16-18:
An earthen lamp can give the light if it has oil,pot and the wick.Similarly,a man will live as long as his work during the lifetime ordains him the longevity.If his karma does not give enough good effects to the society his life wanes slowly.No amount of medicines,mantras,yagna,chants can save him from the death or his old age afflictions.

For the longevity of a man is assibned by God,an Ayurvedacharya or a doctor cannot give him that.It is believed that the longevity comes from the world of God,and a human can learn that only through studies of the planets.

Graheshu pratikooleshu nanukoolang hi bheshajam-Chapter-1/sloka 26:
If the planets give adverse effects to a human,the medicines donot act favourably upon him.The planets destroy even the powerful qualities of the medicines.In such a situation it is advisable that one should try to appease the planets first and then go for the medicinal therapies.Even the therapies would demand for three specific shastra ordained procedures,such as,Aasuri,Maanushi and Daibee chikitsa trividhamata,that tells all.The treatment by the shastras is called Aasuri.The treatment by alchemy,chemical salts or astringent is called Maanushi,and that through the devine invocation and mantras is called Daibee.

In Charaksamhita,Maharshi Charak said,"The divine therapy or daibee Chikitsa consists of such practices as reciting and having trust in mantras,wearing medicinal talisman,wearing gems,doing welfare jobs in the society,offering oblation to fire,atonements,fasting,invocation of peace through religious process,offerings regards and good wishes to wards one's elders,keeping respectful consideration about others,enjoying the pilgrimage, etc."

Advocates the Indian philosophy:
"Aushadhi manimantranaam,graha nakshatra taarikaa Bhagya Kaaley bhauvet sidhhi,aubhagyang nisphalang bhauvet."
That means, at the time when a disease starts manifestation,one should begin a therapy by taking medicines.If that does not work, then he should apply gemology or therapy by wearing gems or precious stones to please the concerned planets or to apply the solar energies. And even after that if the situation warrants,he should try the mantra therapy,which is the topmost discipline in treating human ailments.

Said Maharshi Shusrutu,"An efficient Vaidya would always chant the blessings enshrined in the Rig veda,Yajur Veda,Sama Veda or Atharva Veda,simultaneously,While administering the medicinal therapy.That eventually calms down the evil effects of the disease."

Varahamihira,who expounded the Astrology as a science,has explained in the chapter titles Ratna parikshadhhyayang in his magnum opus,Vrihatsamhitaa,
"Ratnena shubhena,nripanaa manishri bhashubhena yasmaadataha parikshyang doibang tajj gzhaiyha."
That means, if the good gems are worn the princes or any royal man would face blissful consequences,and if the gems are evil then would meet with evil consequences.

According to the tenets of the Astrology,if the moon is housed between two evil planets and the Ascendant Lord is housed in the sixth,eighth and the twelfth houses then it is said in sanskrit as "saw yati yama mandiram" or the native would die at a very young age.A youth had on his palm a black spot dotting upon his life and brain lines. He was prescribed Gemology.A ring studded with protective gem was given to him to wear,his life was saved.

An intensive study of the shastras would enlighten us that:
"ashwameva bhoktabyang kartumkritang shubhashubham.
Atyutkataanaang paapaanaang,ihoieva phalam ashtutey."
That means, the future gets transformed into karma or action in life,yet the inevitable future or prabal bhavishya cannot transform at all.

The stored karma is actually the destiny of a human,the active karma goes back to be preserved for the future birth.One can turn ones destiny into an accomplished reality,if he is eager,strong in will.A poor fellow can apply penance to demolish his undesirable karma of his previous birth.A childless can get a child by help of divine bliss and favour.A fellow with a cut-off lifeline can even attain long life by help of religious oblations.Our shastras have many anecdotes to offer in their pages.

Hence what exactly is the destiny? That is well explained by the Astrology. How the destiny can be changed or removed from one condition to another that is explained by Karmakanda or Dharmashastra.If the Astrology or the science of lines on palm is the first part of human's fate,the karmakanda is his later part. The knowledge of the science of gems,or Gemology, will become incomplete without learning what exactly is the karmakanda or Dharmashastra or the process as to how to dispel the evil effects of the unfavourable planets.

If a human fails to learn what is his acquired destiny through the processes of Astrology,or science of planets,then all his arguments and industriousness come to a naught. If he comes to know his destiny by these process only then he would be able to act and try the options to correct his destiny as far as practicable. His industriousness would come to be a sucess only then. Luck is the seed in him,which is sprouted and flourished by the innate industriousness he has.The fruit is delivered by the time. The knowledge of the time whether the fruit is ripe already or not is given by the science of Astrology. The perfect utility of Astrology and Palmistry lies in the knowledge of the process whereby a human is able to bring changes in his luck by help of shastra-ordained process.This is an invaluable divine heritage given to human as his individual fulfilment.
