The Bearer of Good Health, Prosperity, Happiness and Peace of Mind
Navaratna refers to the nine gemstones related to the nine planets used in Vedic astrology. Nava means ‘nine’ and ratna means ‘gem’ in the Sanskrit language. These nine planets are the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. These last two ‘shadowy planets’ of Vedic astrology correspond to the ascending and descending nodes of the Moon respectively.
For millennia mystics and royalty of the East have known the secret of easily influencing a person’s destiny through powerful combinations of astrological gemstones. Vedic astrology is the ancient universal science of light, called Jyotish in Sanskrit, the original language of India. By recording the position and influence of the planets at the time of one’s birth, astrology helps determine one’s karma from past lives and the fulfillment of one’s potential in this lifetime. It is also an extremely valuable tool in determining the proper timing of major events in one’s life so they will meet with success instead of difficulty or failure. Vedic astrology offers many remedial methods for undoing, reducing or circumventing the negative effects of the karma that is indicated in the birth chart. Among them are the use of prayers, rituals, giving in charity and planetary gemstones. The easiest method is the wearing of planetary gemstones.
Of all the planetary jewelry recommended, the Navaratna (nine gemstone) setting is revered as the best and is therefore known as the King of Astrological Jewelry. Now you can discover and utilize the powerful energy of the Navaratna talismans to successfully bring about positive changes in your life!
When only one astrological gemstone is worn, it tends to focus on a particular planet or specific problem. When a setting of gemstones corresponding to the nine planets is worn, it offers extraordinary protection because it can deliver the benefits of all the nine planetary gemstones simultaneously. The Navaratna talisman is designed to ward off negative energies and their effects and to strengthen the positive influences that the nine planets and their respective gemstones deliver. One can wear it in expectation of good health, prosperity, increased happiness and peace of mind.
Navaratna jewelry can be made with gems or semi-precious stones. The most important consideration is that the stones being used are flawless. The different categories of stones are not so much related to their value and market appeal but more to their influence on the body and its chemistry, the mind and its psychology, and the electromagnetic field that surrounds a person. Here are the gemstones used in the Navaratna pendant featured in this book (included in the boxed gift set).
