The term 'Navaratna' was used by Emperor Akbar in reference to his nine most important court assistants. The healing properties of this collection of gems are unique. The Navratna also forms the basis of pranic or life healing. Each stone in the collection has a particular planet in its alignment, and corresponds to a particular Chakra.
Each stone also has a particular cosmic colour. These nine stones have been referenced in the ancient Vedic scriptures as the key to counteract the adverse karmic force that brings in negative energies such as stress, disappointments or frustrations. It is the Vedic verdict that one has to enjoy/suffer the consequences of their karmas. These stones empower you and strengthen your emotions and intellect.
In the Vedic astrology, the nine precious stones (Navaratna) are connected with the nine planets. A person governed by a particular planet (guru) should wear a stone ruled by that planet in order to attract more cosmic energies from the concerned planet. The stones evolved under the tectonic pressure inside the earth are natural and have the ability to affect the human body.

Namaste Sri DharmaDev Arya & Friends, Sisters and Brothers, sorry for long absence and missed you all. Been a busy 3 odd months. Dropping by to say hi to everyone and also to mention that I'd done a 40-day discipline with a Navratna Mala which I got from Rudra Centre India. The results? Absolutely wonderful. For 10 years, everything in my life was blocked and there was no movement. I was neither here nor there. "In limbo" was the best description I could give. Upon 30-odd days of wearing the Navratna mala, everything started happening. All that was stagnant began moving at last. And fast t
