Parashara's Light Vedic Astrology Software Company has developed an anukul-graha-ratna gem selection feature that some PGA members sponsor and offer to the public as a FREE service. Two of the members offering this feature are AstrologicalGem Dot Com and Astral Gemstone Talismans:
Simply enter your birth data and get immediate results - FREE
The readings are determined using Jyotish (Vedic Sidereal Astrology) based on Lahiri Ayanamsa. We suggest that Vedic horoscope bhava (house) placements be taken into account when deciding between generated options, as gems for planets placed in the 6th (obstacles-enemies), 8th (death-sex), or 12th (loss-falls) houses should probably not be stimulated. These prescriptions are not meant to replace the advice of correctly schooled Planetary Gem Advisors employing human intuition - but the results are interesting to say the least.
Notice to anyone else offering this free service: Please let us know and we will inform the public.
Thailand's Astral Gemstone Talismans Release Some New 2013 Series Creations
Where the past and the future cooperate
Round Eka Mukhi Rudraksha
Owned and photographed by
In Padma Purana Chapter 57, verse 38 to 39, translated by Bhatta 1989 it is stated, “The Rudraksha of one mouth is virtually Siva. It can even remove the sin of killing a priest. Therefore one should wear it for the destruction of all sins. He would go to Siva's heaven and rejoice with Siva. Oh Kartikeya - man could only obtain a Rudraksha of one mouth and Kailasa due to great religious merit and due to Siva's favor.”
In the recent history of Nepalese Rudrakshas after so many years and among millions of beads produced from trees, we have not seen any rudraksha which can surpass the round Eka Mukhi bead shown above. It is perfect in terms of its outward manifestation and power. Each year I handle thousands of beads up to 21, 22 mukhis. But no other bead can give me such a strong power sensation as compared to this real round Eka Mukhi bead above. I can sense the energy even when my hand gets close.
Many Nepalese suppliers have examined this bead, and all have agreed that this bead is definitely one of the best in the world.

World’s largest Retail Store Dedicated to Planetary Gemstones Opens in Bangalore.
Bangalore 15th Nov 2012 -- Aside of all the sobriquets Bangalore enjoys, soon ‘Gem of a City’ could probably be added to the list. One can’t feel otherwise while stepping into the ‘Gemstone Universe’ boutique store launched today in Indiranagar, Bangalore’s hotspot. It is a world of planetary gemstones, a first-of-its-kind store. His Highness, Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar, Maharaja of Mysore, did the honor of cutting the ribbon and lighting the lamp at the inauguration.
Ms. Vani Ganapathy, one of the top Bharata Natyam Dancers of India also graced the occasion. Ms. Vani has danced all over the country and abroad performing for many important dignitaries from Indian and abroad. Ms. Vani runs a dance institution under the name ‘SANCHARI’ where she herself trains a lot of enthusiastic and dedicated youngsters.
Gemstone Universe, the world’s largest retail store exclusively for planetary gemstones, is spread over 3000 sq. ft. with dazzling interiors based on themes from the Zodiac, astrology, Astronomy and Vedic texts. The retail store of 3000 sq ft is part of the Gemstoneuniverse centre of excellence – the with 10,000 sq ft housing a research center, private viewing chambers, state of art gem photography studio and gemological instruments among other facilities right in the heart of Bangalore.
Interestingly, consultation rooms have been named after the two Vedic Gurus/ mentors – Jupiter (Brihaspati) and Venus (Shukra), as sacred knowledge and its dissemination are completely under the aegis of these gurus.
The store offers customers an insight into the world of pure Jyotish quality gemstones. Customers can consult with the team of GIA and PGA certified consultants and get gemstone recommendations based on accurate analysis of their horoscopes. A wide range of designs available at the store will facilitate the customers to choose and place orders for their personalized jewellery pieces with the recommended gemstones.
Talking at the inauguration, his highness said “Guruji Shrii Arnav and Abhijita Kulshrestha, who are the brains behind Gemstoneuniverse, have carefully planned the whole project making sure that all elements of nature are balanced in this setting. It has been well incorporated in the design and layout of the store also. I wish their endeavour the very best as it really makes a far reaching impact in spreading of our heritage and this scared science.”
“Karmic experiences and situations are rather inevitable, under the circumstances gem stones associated with our grahas support and help in reducing the impact of the challenging situations that we face or encounter. But the key is to get authentic and appropriate gem stones from the right source as it is also associated with astrology and other sciences” said Ms. Ganapathy, talking on the occasion.
Guruji Arnav said, “The facility is not just another store selling gemstones but an opportunity for people to understand and experience the power of real jyotish quality gemstones. We as the patrons of the industry would like to facilitate knowledge development and sharing on the subject of jyotish gemstones and their powers. The store is our effort in that direction where experts from the industry across the globe would be invited for discussions, training programmes and seminars.”
“It is no secret that the gemstones have extraordinary powers that can have a dramatic influence on an individual’s life. Wearing a suitable gemstone can increase benefits and attract abundance into the life of an individual. The positive effects experienced by human beings far outweigh the concerns of the skeptics. The aim of wearing a precious gemstone can be very wide ranging – from prosperity, to scaling the ladder in professional life, a successful marriage, etc. … to progress in spiritual pursuits.” says Abhijita, senior Astro-gemologist at Gemstone Universe.

BALAJI GL108 NAVARATNA GEM LAMP
Modern Science and Ancient Wisdom
Over the last decade in Europe, Russia and the United Kingdom pioneering work has been carried out on vibrational healing. During this time Howard Beckman and his wife Jennifer have brought together a concise and conclusive system of Ayurvedic Gem Therapy. Together with the help of their team of scientists and staff, they have produced the Balaji GL108 Navaratna Gem Lamp. The GL108 enhances the individual gem cosmic rays even further using innovative science on the cutting edge of modern technology. The gem lamps have been used to treat everything from burns, infections and sprains to depression and neurological disorders. All with outstanding results.
The Balaji GL108 Navaratna Gem Lamp consists of an electronic instrument encased in steel with a front control panel to set the desired frequencies and times of treatments. It has been certified by US government approved testing laboratories to meet all required specifications for such a device to be sold in the US, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe, which makes it also approved for most all other countries in the world. It is supplied with 2 gem lamps made of heat-resistant materials that can never become hot to the touch so as to cause burning in any case instances. A set of 9 natural, untreated gems and 9 specialty color filters are also supplied with the gem lamps, as well as 2 tripods to support the lamps' use.
Healing with Color/Gem Therapy
The human body is composed of vibrating groups of cells. These cells are in turn made up of the seven cosmic rays in varying degrees. To remain in a healthy state the rays within the cells should be in a state of equilibrium. Disease occurs by the outward and inward actions of the individual. The body's natural defense manages to adjust when up to two cosmic rays are disturbed and through proper maintenance it can right itself. But when three or more cosmic rays are disturbed, the body will succumb to disease.
Certain gemstones are recognized to be storehouses of the individual cosmic rays. The ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Judaic cultures used gems for healing, but it was the Vedic culture of India that gives the most comprehensive practice of gem therapy. Particular gems were connected to specific cosmic rays; Ruby - red ray, Pearl - orange ray, Red coral - yellow, Emerald - green, Yellow Sapphire - blue ray, Diamond/White Sapphire - Indigo and Blue Sapphire - violet. These in turn are connected to specific energies or doshas within the body and mind. Gem therapy is usually administered by gem tinctures, ayurvedic gem medicines or rings and amulets.
Only natural gems are used, as their vibration is the same as the corresponding rays. Glass and synthetic or heated gems do not vibrate at the same specific level and therefore will not give the same results. The gems we provide for use with the lamps are transparent except for the pearl, red coral and crysoberyl cats-eye (which are never transparent) and are of beautiful natural color.

C3 Building, Lumpini Night Bazaar,
1875 Rama 4 Road, Lumpini,
Bangkok 10330, Kingdom of Thailand
Kind Attn: Mr. Richard Shaw Brown, PG
We acknowledge with pleasure, the efforts made by you and the Planetary Gemnologists Association in promoting awareness about Jyotisa Quality gemstones and their proper use. Specifically, the information, documentation and proof about the following is very much appreciated.
1. The continuing debate on anukula (favourable, risk free) and pratikula (unfavourable, appeasement) gemstones. In principle, we strongly support the use of anukula gemstones and would recommend a pratikula gemstone only if it was involved in a strong favourable yoga in a kendra (quadrant).
2. The nava-ratna or nine principal gemstones of the navagraha, their definitions of quality including colour, clarity etc. All the nine gemstones are ideally used with the ruby in the centre surrounded with the other eight gems in an eight-petal heart lotus formation, as a pendant. We have been admiring your beautiful creations.
3. Discussion on gemstone conflicts are interesting and in principle we have found them to alter the strength of the principal gemstone in a negative manner, provided they do not form a part of any yoga.
4. Bogus and Genuine Lakshmi Shanka information at the website http://www.p-g-a.org/index1.html is very helpful and we hope to see your continued efforts in this direction in the future as well.
We acknowledge and accept with thanks, your offer to be an Honorary Patron of the Planetary Gemologists Association.
