Gemstone minerals are usually available in numerous colours, but Peridot Gemstone has just one characteristic colour. In fact, the mineral from which Peridot Stones is composed of is called olivine. Traces of iron give rise to the green.

Wearing Peridot with Rudraksha
Wearing a combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha is the best way to make the most of it. Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® (RRST®) devised by Neeta Singhal makes the use of both Peridot gemstone and Rudraksha beads. It is a holistic healing therapy that uses the curative and healing properties of Rudraksha and Gemstones to balance and energize chakras. In RRST we deal only with natural and un-treated gemstones. The reason Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy is widely acclaimed by many is that it works on chakras, the very basis of life and is a holistic therapy that heals from deep within with absolutely no side effects. In RRST setting of a gemstone, as a ring or as a pendent, the bhasm made of the planetary herb is kept inside one tube and the metal that improves the planetary effects, is kept in another tube. In case of Peridot gemstone, Apaamaarg Bhasm and metal Bronze are used to attract the cosmic power of Mercury. The gemstone is then energized with its precise seed mantra on a specific day to empower it to eliminate all the malefic effects of the planet and reinforce its beneficial effects. Thus the gemstone becomes a powerful talisman suitable to be worn by any person irrespective of his birth chart.
When or Which Day To Wear Agate Gemstone:
At Rudra Centre all the gemstones are pre-energized as per Vedic rituals and can be worn immediately, on the suggested specific right/left hand finger. It can be worn on Wednesday, in the morning after bath. If need be, one may additionally chant the seed mantra “YAM” 108 times before wearing.
Anahata (Heart) Chakra:
Anahata, the heart chakra, is the seat of compassion, trust and signifies following of Dharma. It gives us the ability to gain insight in the mentality and character of other beings. With it we are able to feel the warmth and cold emanating from other people. It is a purification station that clears the wine from the drab. Only purity can ascend to the higher centers of the head. All this happens when energy moves upwards through the body. It is the seat of the senses and governs the sense of touch and action of feeling. Thus the heart connects our physical existence with a power which comes from the universe. The purpose of Anahata Chakra is to become open to love and compassion, both to yourself and others around you. Colour green of this chakra denotes growth and renewal.
When Anahata Chakra is blocked, you fear commitments and feel as if you have to please others to be loved. You mistrust and hurt by others in relationships. You overly guard yourself from being hurt again.
When Anahata Chakra is open, you are comfortable in your relationships, you are able to give and receive love easily. You feel a heartfelt sense of gratitude for how wonderful your life is. You appreciate others and feel compassion for both yourselves and others.
Hence proper functioning of all the chakras ensures appropriate energy flow to all body parts including our vital organs. Thus chakra cleansing and balancing is essential to enjoy good health and happiness which translates to overall abundance and wellbeing in every spheres of life. The purpose of Anahata Chakra is to develop Trust & Forgiveness. Accept but don’t expect.

Dear Neeta, Thank you for the mala and the emerald which arrived a few days ago. It all looks very good. Very nice handywork. Also thank you for the cassette. The rendering of the Mrityunjaya mantra is really very wonderful. Sincerely and with the best wishes Ketil Helmersberg
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
Hi Neetaji, Dhramadevji I collected my fedex package from the jewel osco near my home. I really appreciate the excellent customer service you have at Rudra Center. I really like my mala (done in silver). My sister's mala looks awesome as well (sphatik + emerald+rudrakhsa). I was really impressed with the packaging that you had done. The bags + the japa mala bag were really great. I have done pooja and have started wearing my mala as well as doing ganesh japa with my custom rosary. pranaam Desikan
