I recently came across an image of Sri Yuketswar wearing a Navratna on his left arm and an unknown bangle on his right (assumed to be pure silver),
For Navratna do we find the gem for each planet based on our chart according to your gem course or is there some other hyper-synergistic super energy associated with the 9 traditional gems? An eggregor radiated by masters like Sri Yuketswar advising their use for example.. or the crowns of the Buddhist dharma-kings with the 5 elements and their associated planets as these same Gems (Ruby, Saphhire, Yellow topaz, Emerald, and Diamond)
There’s something about these gems that still seems significant even having done your course and having learned the details about the structures etc.
Is there anything to this feeling I have or should I just ignore it?
Btw do you know what that bangle he wore on his right arm is made out of? Could it be lead? I think I remember him advising this for someone in Autobiography of a Yogi.
We don't know what gems Sri Yuktesvar was wearing. We just know he wore that armband, though its assumed he used the 9 gems given in a couple of the middle age astrology books. It was actually stolen when Yogananda and some of his disciples visited india. Yuktesvar took it off and one of Yogananda's disciples was not attentive to watching things and it was stolen and he got chastised by Sri Yuktesvar for being inattentive. I lived in a town where someone was selling a lot of navaratnas when I started doing readings so I saw a lot of people with them. Some people had great results, some people said they felt nothing. I tried one, and it did not do much for me. I had much better effects with a single garnet, and at another time, with a single blue sapphire and antoehr time with a single blue spinel. I have seen many people benefit from one gem more than a navaratna. So I am not a big fan of spending a lot of money on some of the most expensive gems and not having better effects than a 50.00 gem.
Yes, copper for Venus.
