Gems and Remedies

Performing remedial measures and wearing stone for a particularly planet helps increase the positive aspects of the planet in the horoscope. Scientifically, recital of Mantra for a particular planet forms a protection layer around man. Stone increases the benefic aspects by concentrating rays of the planet and causing this energy to flow into the human body.


How to wear the stone

To obtain the full benefic effects of the stone, wear it when Moon is within a specific constellation on a specified day and time. Wearing it in the specified Nakshatra (star) enhances the benefic effects of the stone. Take the stone of a size specified or greater, in fraction of 1/4 Ratti, rejecting fractions of 3/4 Ratti. Get it studded in the specified metal such that it touches the finger from the bottom. Before wearing it light a lamp and incense sticks and meditate on your God. Clean the ring in fresh milk and then Ganga water. Perform pooja and recite the specified Mantra 108 or 1008 times. Then wear the stone in the specified finger of your right hand. After wearing the ring give alms as specified for that stone. If you are already wearing a stone then avoid wearing a contradictory stone to the specific stone worn previously. A proper judgement of all the planets at birth is crucial in deciding which gem stone can be worn favourably and which stones have to be avoided. A wrong judgement can play havoc and prove harmful.
