“Gem + Ornament = Benefits: promotes wealth, auspiciousness, longevity, prosperity; destroys calamity, promotes happiness, charms, and Ojas*.” ~Charaka Samhita, Sutra 5, #97
Gemstones are one of the most important and common remedy used in Vedic Astrology. They are created by the cosmic rays transmitted through the Earth. They are pieces of tiny planetary light that hold and reflect planetary energies. Gems work on a subtle, etheric level -bestowing light into physical existence. Vedic Astrology has its own way of deciding which gem to wear, where and how it will affect the wearer.
