Krishna stated in Bhagavad Gita that the bodies of all species
are formed out of Prakriti (Nature / Cosmos). Nature consists
of the Pancha Bhutas (five elements/ tats)- Prithvi (earth), Jala
(water), Agni/ Tejo (fire), Vayu (air) and Akash (ether).
the bodies are out of these tats (characteristics) of these five
elements at the time of birth. The three Gunas (characters) of
Satwik, Rajasik and Tamasik are also simultaneously formed at
the time of birth out of Prakriti. Planets also being a part of
this cosmos, are related to these five tats and and three gunas
and hence to the bodies.
tats and gunas are formed in different proportions in different
bodies affecting the physical and mental conditions of the body.
Accordingly the planets are configured in the horoscope at the
time of birth in different rashis (signs) and bhavas (houses)
with a particular lagna (ascendant).
The constant motion of the planets and the tremendous impact of
their rays/ radiation on the sensory nerves of the human body
is responsible for the multi-fold changes in human behavior, mental
make up, thought, conduct, health, and everything that matters.
These radiation's reach the human cells through these sensory
nerves. When the present day television and radio sets are picking
up the sound and picture waves transmitted through the air via
the satellites, one need not wonder that the body cells would
be attracted by the wave patterns transmitted by the planets.
Thus the planets would be affecting the life pattern also.
No planet is basically benefic or malefic. It all depends on the
situation in which a planet is situated in a horoscope in different
rasi (zodiac sign)s and behaves with respect to a particular Lagna. At a particular
time and place of birth, subjected to various influences with
respect to the placement of other planets. For example, the benefic
or malefic tendency of a planet may differ as per its placement
in exaltation/ debilitation rasi (zodiac sign), own rasi (zodiac sign)/ star, friendly/
enemy rasi (zodiac sign) / star, different behaves as per its own lordship
and as per its association and aspects by other friendly / enemy
planets etc. Each of these placements, aspects, associations are
not of equal importance and they are to be considered giving different
weightless of each type of influence. (For details refer my book
" How to read a horoscope- A Scientific model of predictions
based on benefic and malefic analysis of planets and behaves as
per Hindu astrology published by M/s Motional Banarasidass publishers,
Once the benefic and malefic percentages analysis is done, the
corresponding gems of the planets for improving their benefic
performance is suggested as one of the remedial measures. Different
gems are recommended for different planets depending on the characteristics
of the planets and the special quality of the gems and it is really
not known how this classification is done, may be based on the
anticipated colour of the planet and the corresponding colour
of the gem. For example, according to the Brihat Jatak, Jupiter
has a body of yellow hue and the gem yellow sapphire is related
Gems are stones formed in particular special configuration and
quality out of the earth elements capable of attracting the radiation
waves of the planets. For example, both the gem diamond and coal
are formed out of the element of carbon, but the rays which have
become concentrated in the diamond would be absent in the coal.
That is why the gems are costly possessing the rays of light peculiar
to different planets.
The radiation waves transmitted by the particular planets would
be picked up and absorbed by the corresponding gems because of
the same colour and characteristics. It would not be logical to
suggest that the gems would contradict the waves coming to it
from their corresponding planet and reject them. Accordingly the
gem embedded in a ring touching the skin would transmit these
rays of the planet into the body of the native influencing sensory
nerves and the cells and thereby the life pattern corresponding
to the characteristics of the planet in the horoscope. If the
planet is a benefic, the native derives the good effects from
the planet. If the planet is a malefic, the gem transmits the
bad vibrations of the planet and the native suffers the bad effects.
In view of the above, the Jyotish gems act SAME as their Grahas
(planets) and so the gems should be used for a native's ANUKUL
GRAHAS (benefic planets) to improve the performance of the benefic
influence. The Jyotish gems do not act OPPOSITE of their Grahas
and so gems should not be used for a native's PRATIKUL GRAHAS
(malefic planets). Thus the malpractice of Pratikul Vad by some
confused and irrational astrologers to the detriment even ruination
of their misguided clients can be put an end. .
