1. Effects of wearing or not wearing ornaments by women

The main objectives of women wearing ornaments are:

  • To absorb Divine Chaitanya, that is, positive energy through the medium of ornaments.
  • To alleviate the distress by negative energies.

It is evident from the above table that by not wearing ornaments, women get more distress by negative energies.

2. The science underlying women wearing ornaments of a big size

The Scriptures prescribe that women wear big sized ornaments. The reasons are given below:

  • Awakening of a warrior attitude and being able to overcome emotions: Women who are very emotional should wear big-sized ornaments. With this, their raja-guna is activated and the unmanifest warrior attitude is awakened. Due to awakening the warrior attitude they become capable of overcoming the difficulties in controlling the emotions arising in the mind because of their emotional nature.
  • Negative energies facing difficulty in entering the body of women and exchanging black energy: Due to the big-sized ornaments Chaitanya is attracted in higher proportion and most parts of the body are covered with Chaitanya. Hence, the negative energies face difficulty in entering the body of the woman and in exchanging black energy.
  • Reduction in emotional nature of the woman due to absorption of Chaitanya in higher proportion in the big sized ornaments: By wearing big Chaitanya-filled ornaments the mental sheath of the woman is transformed and this helps reduce her emotional nature.

2.1 Spiritual features of big-sized ornaments

A. Earrings: Girls should wear hanging earrings. The hanging earrings are appropriate for girls. Up to the age of the onset of menses, the raja-guna remains in a dormant state. Thus the girls gain the necessary raja-guna from the hanging earrings. After the onset of their menses there is no need for gaining raja-guna externally so they don’t need to wear hanging earrings. As compared to wearing ornaments that hang from the ear, women should wear earrings which touch the ear directly because the ability of such earrings to absorb Chaitanya is more.

B. Necklace: The neck ornaments should not be limited to around the neck only but should reach up to the Anahat-chakra, that is, the middle of the chest. By this the woman’s Anahat-chakra is awakened and her sattva-guna is increased.

C. Bangles: The bangles should be of a big size that is wide and thick. With this the Chaitanya is attracted in a higher proportion.

D. Anklets: Due to the sattvik design on the anklet, the woman is protected from the negative energies from Hell.

3. Ornaments worn in the hair styled in braids or a bun

  • Fake ornaments available in the market to be worn in hair: Some women make sattvik hairstyles like a braid or bun but wear fake ornaments in them. The fake ornaments are mainly made of plastic or some impure metal. By wearing fake ornaments in the hair the woman does not get any spiritual benefit. She can get various distresses due to the black energy emitted by the negative energies which are attracted to the fake ornaments.
  • Real ornaments worth wearing in the hair: Some real ornaments to be worn in a braid and a bun are a string of gold flowers, bun pins with small jingling bells.

3.1 Benefits of wearing real ornaments in the hair

Real ornaments are made of gold or silver and are studded with precious stones. Due to this, these ornaments attract the Chaitanya in the atmosphere and the woman wearing the ornaments gains its benefit. Benefits of wearing real ornaments in the hair at a subtle level are:

  • The Deities’ raja-sattva frequencies active in the atmosphere are attracted towards the real ornaments.
  • These frequencies spread in hair through the ornaments.
  • The raja-tama in the hair is reduced
  • It helps hair in becoming sattvik and filled with Chaitanya.
  • A spiral of Chaitanya is created all around the hair.
  • Due to the spiral of Chaitanya, hair is protected from the attack of negative energies.

Apart from this, a woman gains other benefits like an increase in her life energy. A sheath of destroyer frequencies is created around her entire body. The ornaments have to be sattvik to gain the benefit of wearing them in hair.

Spiritual experience of a seeker wearing a string of gold flowers in the hair:

  • There was a black covering around my head before wearing the string of gold flowers.

  • The black covering around my head was reduced after wearing the string of gold flowers on my bun.
  • I starting experiencing Chaitanya over the bun.
  • I felt that Chaitanya was spreading in my head too.
  • I started experiencing pleasant sensations over my Brahmarandhra.
  • I could see white light over my head.

The effect of Chaitanya over my head due to wearing the string of gold flowers was retained for some time, even after removing it. – Sadhak

This shows that by wearing the string of gold flowers in one’s hair, sattvik vibrations are generated. Nowadays it may not be possible for everyone to wear a string of gold flowers. However, at least one should not wear artificial ornaments in hair. Instead, one should adorn a string of fresh fragrant flowers in hair. Flowers or a string of flowers also equally attracts the Divine Principle as well and benefits a woman.

4. Mangatika or Lalatika

This ornament is worn in the ‘Manga’, that is, in the parting of the hair and one end rests on the forehead. The Chaitanya in the Universe is absorbed in the Mangatika. In this Chaitanya, Brahmatej and Kshatratej are present in a dormant state. Thus Brahmatej and Kshatratej act at a Sagun level through the Mangatika. The intellect of a woman wearing a Mangatika becomes pure and sattvik. The qualities Brahmatej and Kshatratej are generated. This clarifies the importance of Mangatika.

Subtle effects of wearing the Mangatika:

  • The place at which the Mangatika is hooked in the hair over the Sahasrar chakra, a flow of Divine Principle, Energy of Knowledge and Chaitanya are attracted.

  • A spiral of Divine Principle, Energy of Knowledge and Chaitanya is formed over the Sahasrar chakra.
  • A spiral of Chaitanya is formed in the pendant in the front parts of the Mangatika. Divine particles are spread in the environment.
  • A flow of Divine Energy (Shakti) is attracted towards the Sahasrar chakra. A spiral of activated Shakti is generated at the Sahasrar chakra. A flow of Shakti is generated towards the pendant through the chain attached to the Mangatika. A spiral of Shakti revolves around the pendant in activated form. Flows of Shakti are emitted in the environment from the spiral of Shakti. Particles of Shakti are spread in the woman’s head and atmosphere. A protective sheath is formed around the head of the woman. The black covering formed on the mind and intellect of the woman by the subtle sorcerer (mantrik) is dispelled.

This further clarifies the importance of a Mangatika. The black energy generated in the void of the heads of women by the mantriks from Hell is reduced due to the Mangatika.

Why do women wear ring in the left hand and men in their right hand?

1. Ornaments of infants

In every household, family members purchase ornaments for a new born infant. The primary objective is to dote on the infant. From birth, infants are very sensitive. To curb the attacks of negative energies on the infant and so that a protective sheath of Divine Chaitanya is created around the baby, he is adorned with ornaments.

Types of ornaments of infants: Normally, on the day of the naming ceremony, the baby is adorned with various ornaments.

A. Earring: This ornament is made from a thin gold wire. When the infant becomes twelve days old, the earlobes are pierced and a gold wire is inserted. Depending on the gold wire, an appropriate small red precious stone is strung on it.

B. Jiutiya (Pendant): The Deity who protects the infant is Jivantika Devi. On the fifth day after the birth of the infant, after stamping the form of Jivantika Devi on gold or silver, She is worshipped. After that, this stamp is strung on a gold chain or a black or red thread and tied around the infant’s neck.

C. Ornament worn on the wrist: Bracelets of black beads are worn on the wrist. For this, black beads are strung on thin gold or silver wires. Due to this bracelet, the infant is protected from evil eyes. A baby girl is adorned with two other types of bracelets.

D. Ring: This is the most known ornament. As far as possible the ring is made from gold.

E. Girdle: Normally this ornament is made from silver. It is worn around the infant’s waist. If it is not possible, then a black thread can be tied instead.

F. Ornament of the feet: There is a difference in the foot ornaments worn by an infant boy and girl. If the infant is a boy, then his legs are adorned with a thick silver Kada. Three proportionate tiny bells are also strung on it. Bells generate a particular type of sound (Nada). Due to the sound, the infant is protected from negative energies. In its place, many people adorn the infant’s feet with a copper Kada. If the infant is a girl then the ornament adorning her feet is an Anklet. For protection of the infant from negative energies, tiny bells are also strung on the silver anklet.

By adorning the infant with ornaments, he also benefits from acupressure therapy which helps him to remain healthy. In ancient times, tiger nails were also tied around an infant’s neck. Tiger nails are a symbol of the Deity’s Destroyer element in the form of the Absolute Fire Element (Tej-tattva). Hence, for the protection of the infant from negative energies, tiger nails were tied around his neck

With increasing age the oversensitivity in infant boys keeps reducing. Hence, it is not necessary for them to adorn ornaments. But it is necessary for the infant girls to adorn ornaments later as well. Nowadays, on the pretext of infection due to germs and feeling the custom is not in keeping with the times, infants are not adorned with ornaments. Keeping in mind the importance of ornaments, infants should necessarily be adorned with ornaments.

2. Ornaments for men

Normally, the word ornaments is associated with women. Men are less sensitive than women. Hence, the possibility of attacks by negative energies on them is less. Therefore it is not necessary for them to wear ornaments. Moreover men are not very attracted towards ornaments as men are symbol of detachment and are the form of Shiva tattva in Maya.

Crown: In ancient times, this ornament was worn by men, especially Kings. The importance of wearing a crown are:

  • The gold in the crown attracts the Deities subtlest principles , there is also an accumulation of the Absolute Fire Element (Tej-tattva) in the body, through the Sun channel (Surya-nadi) and so it becomes possible to continually maintain alertness and activeness.
  • Frequencies of Divine Knowledge (Dnyan) are easily absorbed and the intellect becomes sattvik. Due to this they are able to gain the Divine Knowledge bestowed by Deities and take judicious decisions in all situations.
  • Vibrations of Deities are attracted towards the precious stones studded in the crown.

Kundala: This ornament is to be worn on the ears. After wearing this ornament, specific points on the earlobes get pressed resulting in the development of an attitude of detachment.

Bhikabali: This is also an important ornament worn in the top part of the earlobe. Seven to eight decades ago this ornament was very popular. This is a gold ornament. This ornament worn in the ear inculcates restraint in men.

Rudraksha necklaces: Sages are an epitome of detachment. Hence, they do not wear ornaments. In ancient times the Sages wore Rudraksha necklaces instead of ornaments. Also, they wore armlets made of Rudraksha. These armlets press specific points of the arm thereby providing energy and inspiration for the accomplishment of the mission. Even today some people wear Rudraksha necklaces to acquire good health.

3. Ornaments worn by both women and men

Some ornaments are worn by both women and men, like rings and gold chains. The ornament worn by men on their wrists is known as a Kada and an ornament worn by women is a bangle. Nowadays, men and women wear multicoloured bands on their hands.

Subtle experiment: Spirituality is a science associated with the subtle dimension. Subtle means that which is beyond the five senses, mind and intellect. One can understand the subtle dimension through subtle experiments. Look at the two pictures below and try to perceive what you feel by looking at them. Check if you feel good, distressed or nothing after looking at the pictures. Feeling good means rhythmic breathing, reduction in thoughts etc. Experiencing distress means having a headache, a burning sensation in the eyes etc.

Subtle experiment about ornaments – Wrist band and Kada worn by men: Look at picture ‘A’ and ‘B’, each for 15 seconds. See what you feel by looking at them and note your answer.

Figure A
Figure B
Figure A Figure B

Answer: By looking at the wrist band worn by the man shown in picture ‘A’ distress is experienced. By looking at the Kada worn by the man shown in picture ‘B’ pleasantness is experienced.

3.1 Wrist band

Nowadays, the youth are seen wearing wrist bands. This band is made from materials like plastic, yarn or some metal. The subtle effect of wearing wrist bands is as follows:

  • Illusionary spirals portraying friendship are generated from the band.
  • Spirals of black energy revolve around the band.
  • Frequencies of black energy revolve around the band with speed.
  • Black energy is emitted from the band.

Through this, the subtle form of the band becomes clear. As per western culture, tying wrist bands on Friendship day and Valentine’s Day has become very popular. Contrary to gaining some benefit from wearing this band, there is loss from a spiritual perspective.

Loss incurred by tying a wrist band:

  • By tying a wrist band a covering of black energy frequencies is created around the wrist.
  • Black energy in the environment is attracted towards the band through the fingers.
  • Through the band, these black frequencies are transmitted throughout the entire body.
  • Due to the band, the tama-guna in the body increases and the person becomes extroverted.
  • The person is not able to absorb the sattvik frequencies and thoughts in the environment.
  • Also, through the fingers, frequencies of black energy are emitted into the environment.

Through this, the adverse effects of wearing a wrist band becomes clear. Also through this, tama predominant band pressure is created around the wrist. Consequently, the points present on the wrist get pressed unnecessarily. With the absorption of tama predominant frequencies at these points through the band, these frequencies reach the associated body parts. Due to this, the functioning of those body parts reduces.

3.2 Copper Kada

Usually the Kada worn by men on their wrist is made of copper. The subtle effect of a Kada indicates the following:

  • Spirals of Chaitanya are present around the Kada.
  • Due to copper present in the Kada, the black energy in the body is pulled out and gets discarded out of the body.
  • Particles of active Energy are emitted from the Kada

Through this, the reason for experiencing pleasantness when looking at the copper Kada during the experiment becomes clear. Women wear gold bangles or a Patli i.e. a flat gold bangle. Just as men wear a Kada on their wrist, similarly women wear gold bangles, a ‘Patli’, that is a flat gold bangle and a ‘Toda’ which is a thick gold bangle. Like gold and silver, copper is also a metal which emits sattvikta and Copper also has the capacity to absorb body heat.

3.3 Ring

A ring is an ornament that is worn on the fingers. The method of inscribing one’s name on the ring is from the times of Ramayana. In earlier times, the Kings and Emperors imprinted their insignia on the ring and used it as a stamp (Rajamudra). Hence, a ring is also called Mudrika. Nowadays rings are made of copper, brass, five-metal alloy etc. Five metal alloys mean gold, silver, copper, zinc and iron. These rings are made in various types of artistic designs and in various shapes.

Benefits of a ring:

  • Enhancement of beauty: By wearing a ring, the beauty of a woman or a man is enhanced. People make different types of rings as per their capacity.
  • Acupressure healing: Due to the ring, the delicate part of the finger is pressed and acupressure healing occurs. As a result, the black energy on that part is removed and Chaitanya flows in each finger and the functional ability of the related part increases.
  • Protection from negative energies such as pishachha etc.: There is the concept of gaining protection as well from a ring. By wearing a ring charged with mantras one is not afflicted by pishachha etc. Similarly, one is protected from other negative energies as well.
  • A ring being complementary to spiritual practice (sadhana): The medium of a ring does not allow a person to be under the influence of Desire-Energy (Icchashakti). The person is able to control his sense organs. The severity of the impressions (sanskaras) is reduced. The capacity of the person to absorb the Chaitanya of the Deity in the atmosphere increases. Thus, a situation complementary to a person’s sadhana is created. The benefits mentioned here are acquired in a higher proportion if a gold ring is worn. The benefits from a ring made of other metals, is comparatively less. The Chaitanya available from a ring varies as per the metal of the ring.
Metal of the ring Amount of
Chaitanya
(%)
1. Gold 70
2. Silver 35
3. Copper 15
4. Five-metal alloy 7
5. Other 3

It is evident from the above table why it is more beneficial to make a gold ring only. The Chaitanya acquired from a ring also depends on the shape of the ring. There are rings with different designs and different shapes on them like a serpentine shape, quadrilateral, square, circular and triangular. A persons gains Chaitanya as per the shape in a specific proportion.

Shape of
the ring
Amount of
Chaitanya
(%)
1. Triangular 50
2. Rectangular 45
3. Circular 30
4. Square 25
5. Serpentine 0.5

The triangular design on the ring gives maximum benefits due to its shape as a Shakti-yantra. The acquisition of Chaitanya also depends on the inscription on the ring. Instead of inscribing English words, if sattvik symbols associated with Deities like the Swastikor ‘Om’, which is a symbol of the Nirgun Principle, are inscribed, then the benefit is more. Some people inscribe their name or a sign of some sects, due to which they do not get any spiritual benefit.

Spiritual experience of a seeker after wearing a gold ring: On 27th March 2008, I wore a seeker’s ring on my finger. After that I began feeling an unusual aliveness in my hand and I had the experience of the independent existence of the hand. I felt as if, ‘My vital energy was increasing because of the ring’. When I was paying obeisance (Namaskar) I saw a white light being emitted from the hand which had the ring. – Sadhak

From Ranjana’s spiritual experience, one can understand the importance of wearing a ring. Correct action from a person is the objective underlying wearing a ring on a specific finger. The proportion of benefit by wearing a ring on different fingers is as follows:

Finger Proportion of
Chaitanya
(%)
1. Ring 50
2. Middle 40
3. Index 25
4. Thumb 15
5. Little 10

It is clear from the table that a maximum benefit of Chaitanya is gained by wearing a ring on the ring finger.

The reason for gaining maximum benefit by wearing the ring on the ring finger: The ring finger is associated with the Absolute Water element (Aap-tattva). The Aap-tattva is nurtured in the ring finger. It is also emitted from the ring finger. Hence, the person gets the benefit of the Aap-tattva by wearing the ring on the ring finger. The person’s left channel (Nadi) is associated with the saviour (Tarak) energy, which is mainly ‘action dominant’ (Karmapradhan – an action that is done with a beneficial purpose like Protection of the Nation or Dharma), and this is also called the Moon Channel (Chandra-nadi). The right channel (Nadi) is associated with the destroyer energy, which means it is ‘deed dominant’ (Krutipradhan – any action done without any thought or purpose). This is also called as Sun Channel (Surya-nadi). Man is symbolic of the physical performance of a deed. Hence, the man wears a ring on the right hand ring finger as it represents the right channel. Women are symbolic representations of action and so they wear a ring on the left hand ring finger as it represents the left channel.

Reason underlying men wearing a chain around the neck and a ring during ritualistic worship, and women wearing ornaments on the entire body: As the worshipper is the central point of the ritual it becomes possible for him to absorb Chaitanya easily. During the ritual, due to the ring the subtle process taking place is as follows:

  • Due to the ring, Divine frequencies enter the finger of the worshipper.
  • These frequencies emit Divine Energy through the entire body of the man.
  • Due to this, the worshipper gains Divine Energy in higher proportion.

However, as the actual participation of the woman in the ritual is less compared to that of the man, she is able to absorb Divine Energy in lesser proportion. For this reason, woman should wear different ornaments and imbibe the Divine Principle as per their capacity.

3.4 Chain

A chain is made of gold and silver. This is an ornament worn around the neck. Some people wear only a chain, whereas some people string one of the nine precious stones or a rudraksha onto it.

Subtle experiment about two types of chains worn around the neck: Look at the two pictures below for 15 seconds and note whether you feel good, distressed or nothing at all after looking at the pictures.

Figure A
Figure B
Figure A Figure B

Answer to the experiment: By looking at the chain in picture ‘A’, one feels distressed. By looking at the chain in picture ‘B’, one feels good. By looking at the chain in picture ‘A’, one gets distressing spiritual experiences like a sudden increase in thoughts, getting depressed etc. and by looking at the chain in picture ‘B’ one gets good spiritual experiences like getting benevolent thoughts, visualising light, feeling that spiritual healing is occurring through the Nirgun Divine Principle etc.

The gold chain shown in picture ‘A’ has a demonic design. According to a principle of Spirituality, the word, touch, form, taste, fragrance and energy coexist. Thus due to the demonic design of the chain, that is, due to its form, negative vibrations are generated from it. Due to negative vibrations, it becomes easy for the sorcerers (mantriks) to acquire black energy through it. The proportion of black energy increases in the body of a person who adorns the chain with such a demonic design.

The reason for getting good spiritual experiences by looking at chain B is due to the sattvik design. Due to the sattvik design of the chain, sattvik vibrations are created. As a result one gets good spiritual experiences. The sattvikta of the person who wears such chains is increased. On account of the sattvikta, virtues are generated in a person and the negative energies are distressed and the distress by negative energies to the person is reduced.

From this it is evident that wearing a chain is beneficial for a person, but the chain has to be sattvik. With a sattvik chain the beauty of the neck increases.

Spiritual benefits of a sattvik chain

  • The Absolute Fire Element-dominant (Tej-tattva), Chaitanya-filled frequencies are attracted in the chain.
  • Due to the contact of the Tej-tattva, the Manipur chakra is activated.
  • The five vital energies attain momentum.
  • A protective cover in the form of Tej-tattva is generated around the person wearing the chain.
  • Due to the Tej-tattva, a warrior attitude is generated in the person wearing the chain.
  • Sattvik Tej-filled frequencies are emitted from the chain.
  • In a limited field of atmosphere the raja-tama particles are dispelled.
  • The negative energies run away from the person.

With this, the spiritual importance of wearing a chain is highlighted. Some people wear a chain after stringing onto it a pendant with a picture of the object of their faith, a Deity, photograph of Guru or an imprint made of a photograph and other sattvik signs.

Spiritual experience – Through the chain and the sign of Gurukrupayoga, gaining awareness of the generation of a protective sheath around the body: I have a golden chain around my neck and a pendant with the sign of Gurukrupayoga strung onto it. On 10th January 2009, I had worn a sari. I kept the chain outside the folds of the sari’s pallu. Then I felt as if white rays were emanating from the sign on my pendant and spiritual healing was occurring on me. Through the chain and the sign of Gurukrupayoga, I became aware of the creation of a protective sheath around the body. – Sadhak
Here one has to remember that the Deities function according to the spiritual emotion (Bhav) of a person. If an auspicious sign of a Deity or a Guru or a symbol is strung on a chain before wearing it and one does not have Bhav towards it, the person will not get the benefit as per their expectation. Hence, it is essential that not just our conduct but our thoughts too should be sattvik.

3.5 Charged talisman

Generally a talisman, that is, an amulet is made of silver, copper, brass or some other metal in a quadrilateral or round box. Some people thread the amulet onto a black string and wear it around the neck while some tie it on their arm. Generally black thread is used for protection against black energy. However if it is bought by oneself from the market then it does not protect one but if it charged by mantras then it protects one for a certain time period – thereafter spiritual purification of the thread is required. If a black thread is used, it is essential to be alert about purifying the existing black spirals of negative energy on it from time to time.

The subtle negative process which occurs by wearing the amulet strung on black thread around the neck:

  • The amulet is charged with black energy. Hence, the black energy in the amulet, through the medium of the black thread, remains activated from the neck to the chest easily.
  • Due to this, a black covering is formed around the chest.
  • The black energy present in the amulet spreads to the Anahat chakra of the person.
  • In this way by tying an amulet, the black energy present in the atmosphere is constantly attracted towards the person.

The same process occurs at the subtle level upon tying the amulet on the arm. If the amulet has the power to dissolve the spirals of raja and tama from the atmosphere attracted towards the black thread with the help of black energy, only then does the person get ten percent benefit. In short, use of a black thread or ganda tied with black thread is harmful in Kaliyuga. But, here a point to be remembered is that if the black thread is given by Saints, then do tie it. Due to the resolve (sankalp) of Saints, Chaitanya is generated in the thread. This helps in protecting one against negative energies. However considering the destroyer Energy generated, for an average person, using a red thread has more benefits as compared to a black thread.

Harm and benefits as per the metal of the amulet:: If the amulet (Ganda) is made of silver or copper, then only are there some benefits acquired from it. As copper or brass have less ability to protect, negative energies can put a layer of their energy over a copper or brass ganda. To guard against this, the metal should be polished when it tarnishes and its spiritual purification should be done by putting it in the sun for a while.

What is the benefit of applying kumkum than a bindi?

1. Vermilion: An adornment of women

Subtle experiment of a woman wearing a synthetic mark (Bindi) and a woman wearing vermilion (Kumkum)): Look at the two pictures below with concentration and note whether you feel good, distressed or nothing at all after looking at the pictures.

Figure A
Figure B
Figure A Figure B

Answer: By looking at the woman in picture ‘A’, one experiences distress. The woman shown in picture ‘A’ has applied a bindi on her forehead. By looking at the woman in picture ‘B’, one feels good. The woman shown in picture ‘B’ has applied Kumkum on her forehead.

1.1 The effect of applying a bindi on the forehead

The woman in picture ‘A’ above, has applied a bindi which can be stuck on the forehead in place of kumkum. The glue applied for sticking on the back of the bindis is made of artificial objects like paper, plastic etc. is tama-dominant. The subtle effect of a bindi is as follows:

  • Raja-tama-dominant frequencies in the atmosphere are attracted towards the glue behind the bindi.
  • These frequencies spread in the body of the woman wearing the bindi through the Adnya-chakra.
  • As a result, the strength of the raja-tama particles in the woman’s body increases.
  • By applying the bindi continuously at one place, there is a higher risk of the negative energies creating a center there.

It is evident from this why one experiences distress by looking at the woman in picture ‘A’ who has applied a bindi on her forehead. Due to a lack of knowledge of Spiritual science some women overlook the auspicious things mentioned in Hindu Dharma.

1.2 The effect of applying vermilion (kumkum) on the forehead

In picture ‘B’, the woman has applied kumkum on the forehead. The subtle fragrance emitted by kumkum has the ability to attract and emit the Pavitraka of Deities, that is, their subtlest particles in the Universe. Due to the saviour-destroyer Chaitanya-frequencies emitted by kumkum the woman wearing it is protected from negative energies. This explains why one gets good spiritual experiences by looking at the woman wearing kumkum.

Spiritual experience

Kumkum not wiped off even when in the sun or rain: I was regularly using a bindi. On reading a message to seekers in the weekly ‘Sanatan Prabhat’ about ‘apply kumkum in place of a bindi’, I started applying kumkum from that very day onwards. Since then, till date, the kumkum I have applied for the day has never been wiped off even in the sun or upon getting wet in the rain. – Sadhak

1.3 Importance of kumkum

Kumkum is a form of Shakti. Applying kumkum on the forehead is a symbol of Sanatan Hindu culture and also of sacredness and auspiciousness. In some regions women apply kumkum in the centre parting of their hair in addition to the forehead. Applying kumkum in the parting is also a symbol of the marital status of the woman.

1.4 Benefits of applying kumkum

A. The blood supply to the face muscles is facilitated: While applying kumkum, the points on the mid-brow region and Adnya-chakra are automatically pressed. This facilitates the blood supply to the face muscles.

B. After applying kumkum, the ability to attract the Shakti Principle is generated in the woman:

  • The ability of the kumkum to attract the saviour and destroyer Shakti Principle is the highest.
  • By a woman applying kumkum, the soul-energy is awakened in her.
  • In this soul-energy, a tremendous ability to attract the saviour or destroyer Devi Principle is generated.
  • The vibrations of the saviour Shakti Principle present in the woman are awakened.
  • Due to this, the Shakti Principle Pavitrakas in the environment, that is, the subtlest particles of the Shakti Principle are attracted to the woman.
  • Due to kumkum, obstacles are created in the entry of the negative energies in the body of the woman through the Adnya-chakra.

1.5 Effect of fragrance, colour and Shakti of kumkum

Due to the fragrance of kumkum, the subtle excretory air in the woman’s body is disintegrated. Particles of Absolute Fire Element (Tej-tattva) are emitted through the colour pigments present in the kumkum and are gained by the woman. Due to the Shakti frequencies present in the kumkum, the sattvik frequencies present in the environment are absorbed and emitted as per the need.

Spiritual experience: Once, a woman distressed by negative energy perceived a black covering on her face. After bathing, upon applying kumkum, white rays were emitted from it due to which the woman felt that the black covering on her face and the feeling of heaviness and her thoughts reduced.

Through this spiritual experience one can understand that through kumkum, a woman gains Tej in the form of white rays due to which the black covering formed on her face reduces.

Spiritual experience: Awareness of circular sensation on the Adnya-chakra and feeling calm after beginning to apply kumkum: In the year 2004 after reading in the daily ‘Sanatan Prabhat’ about applying kumkum, I began to apply it on the forehead. Thereafter I experienced circular vibrations on my Adnya-chakra. My mind became very calm and my face became sattvik. By looking at the kumkum on the forehead I experience calm and cool frequencies in my eyes. – Sadhak

1.6 Time and appropriate ritual of applying kumkum

Normally women apply kumkum after the morning ablutions, after bath and after washing the face. For applying kumkum, the ring finger should be used. If wax is applied before the kumkum, it remains there for a longer time.

1.7 Spiritual reasons for using the ring finger to apply kumkum on oneself

  • As the ring finger is associated with the Absolute Water Principle, the frequencies of the Absolute Water Principle are emitted through the ring finger.
  • With the help of these frequencies, the Shakti Principle present in kumkum is awakened in a short time.
  • This awakened Shakti Principle spreads in the form of a flow in the Adnya-chakra of the woman who wears the kumkum.

As a result, the raja-guna function of the woman gains strength in the form of Shakti.

1.8 Effects of applying kumkum on the forehead of a woman

  • The kumkum, being sattvik, attracts the Divine Principle. A spiral of this Divine Principle is generated in the kumkum and is activated.
  • A flow of Chaitanya is attracted in the kumkum and its spiral is generated and it remains activated. A spiral of Chaitanya is emitted from the kumkum. In the body of the woman wearing the kumkum, Chaitanya frequencies are spread and due to this the black energy stored in her body cells is destroyed. A sheath of Chaitanya is created around the body of the woman due to which her body and mind are purified.
  • The flows of Shakti are attracted in the kumkum. A spiral of destroyer Shakti filled with particles of Dharma Shakti is created in the kumkum and it becomes activated. A spiral of saviour Shakti is generated in the kumkum and it remains activated. Flows of Shakti are emitted by the kumkum. The Shakti particles are spread in the body of the woman who applies the kumkum. These particles are also emitted in the environment. A protective sheath of Shakti is generated around the body of the woman who wears kumkum. As a result the black energy in the body of the woman is removed.

1.9 Application of kumkum to others

While applying kumkum to others, be it a man or a woman, the middle finger should be used. By using the middle finger which has a maximum of the Absolute Fire Principle, one’s own body is protected.

Subtle effects of application of kumkum by one woman to another:

  • While application of kumkum by one woman to another with the middle finger, Divine Shakti is attracted in the kumkum.
  • A spiral of this Shakti is generated in the kumkum and these spirals spread through the body of the woman to whom the kumkum has been applied.
  • Due to the touch of kumkum, Chaitanya flows in the body of the woman applying the kumkum.

1.10 Effects of kumkum on women suffering from distress by negative energies

Due to the sattvikta of kumkum, the women affected by negative energies experience distress such as continuous itching at the place where kumkum is applied, developing a rash, feeling like ‘not to apply kumkum’, the kumkum getting wiped out automatically etc. Due to kumkum, the women are able to absorb Chaitanya. Hence, to prevent the woman from applying kumkum, the negative energies distress women.

Spiritual experience: At the time of doing aukshan of a seeker kumkum was applied on her forehead. The seeker experienced that a rapid flow of Energy entered her body through the Adnya-chakra. She experienced a burning sensation in her stomach.

From the seeker’s spiritual experience it is understood that the ornament ‘kumkum’ is not only for enhancing the beauty.

1.11 Effects of applying kumkum or sindur in the hair parting by married women

A. It being possible to keep the flame of warrior radiance constantly awakened in husband: In earlier times by looking at the kumkum or sindur in the parting of married women, the warrior attitude and enthusiasm of men used to increase. For this reason, it is appropriate from the viewpoint of both psychology and Spirituality.

B. Protection from negative energies: The head of women is more soft and sensitive than men. Hence, in order to protect this part of the body from the negative energies, the sindur is filled in the hair parting.

1.12 Spiritual science underlying the use of kumkum being more appropriate than sindur

Due to the destroyer Principle in kumkum, the subtle body of the woman is protected from negative energies. The proportion of destroyer Principle is less in sindur than in the kumkum. This is the reason why the use of kumkum is more appropriate and beneficial than the sindur.

1.13 Reason for application of kumkum by widows being unauthorised by Scriptures

A. Obstacle in the onward journey of the dead husband’s subtle body: After the death of husband, while applying kumkum the woman remembers her husband because of which the subtle body of the husband is again compelled to come to the Earth.

B. Sacrifice of the Great Illusion (Maya) and creation of sense of detachment in self: After the death of husband, it is necessary to awaken a sense of detachment in the woman. Hence she has to sacrifice the ornaments that are suggestive of state of a married woman. Hence, this conduct assists a widow to proceed on the path of God realisation.

Due to lack of religious education and the increasing influence of Western culture, some widows say, ‘So what if the husband is dead?’ and indulge in irreligious conducts by doing inappropriate actions like applying kumkum on the forehead and wearing a mangalasutra. By doing so, they also cause spiritual harm to the husband. In order to prevent the harm, they should pay attention to observing righteous conducts in daily life seriously.

Why is a nose ring (nath) studded with pearls?

Contents


1. Ornaments worn by women in the nose

In the Tripursundari stotra composed by Adya Shankaracharya, prayer has been offered to the Devi, ‘O Girija, please accept this nose ornament offered by me.’ Even today, the nose ring worn by women is studded with pearls. Apart from this, a nose ring (Loung, that is, Besara) is also worn by women.

2. Importance of wearing a nose ring (Nath)

  • Wearing a nath complements spiritual practice: By wearing a nath, a woman becomes more introverted. As per her temperament and efforts her ego reduces to some extent. These two things complement her spiritual practice.
  • With the fleeting touch of the Absolute Fire element of the nath, the woman’s body becomes pure: The oxygen entering the woman’s body through her nose touches the nath slightly. Due to this, the oxygen is purified and the woman’s body becomes Holy. Hence, a woman who has worn a nath looks radiant and pure.
  • By wearing a nath, a spiral of Chaitanya is created around the nose: Due to the Chaitanya present in the nath, a spiral of Chaitanya is generated around the nose. The atmosphere around the nose becomes pure. Due to this, pure air enters the body through the wind pipe.
  • Divine waves are absorbed in a large proportion and easily:

By wearing a nath, the woman’s Moon channel (Chandra-nadi) is activated.

The woman’s body becomes more conducive to imbibing the Chaitanya present in the environment.

The woman’s body absorbs Divine waves in higher proportion and easily.

  • One is protected from negative energies: By wearing a nath, a woman is protected from the negative energies in two ways.A. Acupressure healing takes place: On application of pressure on the acupressure points associated with the body parts which are distressed, the problem in the associated organs is removed. This is called Acupressure therapy. By wearing a nath, pressure is generated on pressure points of the nose. Due to the pressure, by the acupressure treatment the black energy present there reduces.B. Particles laden with the Absolute Fire element (Tej-tattva) are emitted from the rounded part of the nath and an aura of Tej is created around the woman’s body. When the woman’s Sun channel (Surya-nadi) is activated, the frequency of her breathing increases. With each breath, many Tej laden particles enter the woman’s body. These particles are emitted in the outward direction. These Tej laden particles are absorbed by the gold wire of the worn nath. From the circular part of the gold wire, they are emitted into the external atmosphere like a fountain. This helps in the generation of an aura of Tej around the woman. The negative energies are frightened of this aura. Due to the nath, the nose and respiratory tract are protected from the attack of negative energies through the respiratory tract. The circular upper part of the nose in the form of Absolute Fire element (Tej) represents the awakened Shakti Principle in a woman.

2.1 Subtle effects of wearing a nath

Subtle effects of wearing a nath

1. Flows of Divine principle are incessantly attracted in the nath. A spiral of Divine principle is generated in the nath and revolves around it.

2. A flow of the Devi Principle is attracted in the nath.

  • A spiral of the Devi Principle is generated and gets activated.
  • Particles of the Devi Principle are transmitted in the body of the woman wearing the nath. These particles have even more ability to attract the Devi Principle.

3. The pearls in the nath are sattvik. As a result, flows of Chaitanya are attracted in the nath.

  • A spiral of Chaitanya is generated and gets activated.
  • The spiral of Chaitanya is emitted through the nath.
  • Particles of Chaitanya are incessantly emitted through the nath. During ritualistic worship or Holy festivals the emission is 2 % more than usual.
  • These particles of Chaitanya emitted by the nath are transmitted in body of the woman wearing the nath and her body is purified.

4. A spiral of Energy (Shakti) is generated and is activated.

  • Through this spiral, flows of Shakti are emitted.
  • Particles of Shakti are also emitted into the environment. Due to them, the black energy present in the environment is dispelled and this has a positive effect on the woman’s body.
  • Waves of Shakti are transmitted throughout the body of the woman and she experiences Shakti.

2.2 Reason for the pearls in the nath

Through pearls, the waves in the form of the Absolute water Element (Apa-tattva) are activated and emitted. Due to the pearls in the nath, cool waves in the form of the Absolute Water element (Apa-tattva) are emitted from the nath. Waves in the form of Chaitanya, bestowing vital energy (Pranshakti) of the Universe are attracted towards these waves. Both these waves enter the body of the woman wearing the nath with each breath through her nostrils. Through the union of these waves, waves in the form of vital energy (Pranashakti) are transmitted in the woman’s body.

2.3 Spiritual experience of a seeker after wearing a nath

Reduction in thoughts on wearing a nath, experience of bliss, meditative state and generation of a Divine mask on the face: One day, I wore a nath for the first time. At that time the proportion of needless thoughts reduced. I started experiencing calmness and bliss. After some time I experienced thoughtlessness and entered a meditative state. I perceived golden particles around my face. With a solidification of those particles, I perceived a Divine mask on my face. Due to the nath, I perceived a change in myself.- Sadhak

The point to keep in mind is that, for the nath to be beneficial in this way, it is necessary that it should be studded with pearls and should be of gold. Nowadays, nath studded with precious stones and of various designs is also available. One does not acquire the expected benefit from this type of nath. In earlier times women wore nath studded with pearls everyday. With time nath has become an ornament which is worn merely on Holy festivals or special religious and auspicious occasions.

3. Nose ring called Loung or Kila

Generally most women wear a gold loung or kila. Others wear a silver loung. Some loungs are studded with precious stones. Some women also wear a loung studded with diamonds. In some regions women wear loungs on both the sides of the nose. Loungs with various designs are available. For example flower shaped, with a precious stone studded in the flower, like the shape of a clove etc.

3.1 Effects of wearing a gold nose ring

1. Flow of bliss is attracted in the nose ring.

  • A spiral of this bliss is generated and it gets activated.
  • Through this spiral, particles of bliss are activated and they are transmitted in the body.

2. Due to the sattvikta present in the nose ring, a flow of Chaitanya is attracted in it.

  • A spiral of this Chaitanya is generated and is activated.
  • The spiral of Chaitanya is emitted.
  • Spirals of Chaitanya are emitted into the body.
  • Particles of Chaitanya are emitted.
  • A protective sheath of Chaitanya is generated around the body. This sheath has 1.5 % Chaitanya.

3. A spiral of Shakti is generated in the nose ring and it gets activated. Particles of Shakti are emitted in the body and the environment. This reduces the covering of black energy.

By wearing a loung, due to the Chaitanya present in it, there are various effects at the spiritual level. There is a 2 percent purification of the body and 1 percent of the mind. Also, a woman breathes easily.

3.2 Spiritual experience on wearing a gold nose ring

On wearing a gold nose ring, positive changes in the face and due to the white light emitted from the nose ring, experience of reduction in the black covering on the eyes: On 16th July 2006, I wore a loung in my nose for the first time. On the next day, there was a reduction in the pressure on my face and a positive change was seen on my face. The black energy towards my nose reduced. White light was emitted from the nose ring and I perceived a reduction in the black covering on my eyes. – Sadhak

 

Why should one avoid wearing more than one type of ornamaments in ear?

Contents


1. Ornaments worn by women in the ear

These include mainly:

  • The ear-drops (Kundala) of different shapes.
  • The earrings available in different shapes.
  • The hanging earrings dangling from the earlobe.
  • The stud earring, a sattvik ornament of floral shape. It is stringed with pearls.

Nowadays ear ornaments of different designs and shapes are made; but as they lack sattvikta, the women wearing them do not get the required benefit.

2. Importance of ornaments worn in the ear by women

  • Protection of the woman from the raja-tama-dominant frequencies emitted from the hole in the ear: Since ancient times ‘Piercing ear-lobe’ is a conduct of Hindu Dharma. Through the ear and the hole caused by piercing of ear-lobe, raja-tama-dominant frequencies are emitted. During Satyayug due to the Absolute Fire Principle generated as a result of spiritual practice (Sadhana) in the woman’s body the raja-tama-dominant frequencies emitted slightly by the hole were disintegrated there itself. In the course of time the sattvikta of women went on reducing and the raja-tama in them increased. A need for ornaments was felt to protect them from the raja-tama-dominant frequencies and the negative energies. In Kaliyug the ear ornaments play an important role in destroying the raja-tama emitted through the hole.
  • Accupressure healing: Due to ear ornaments, pressure occurs on the ear lobe and other points of the ear giving benefit of acupressure.
  • Increase in ability to absorb subtle sound: By wearing the ornaments in the ear the sattvikta of the ear is increased. As a result the ability to absorb subtle sound is also increased.
  • Creation of protective sheath around the ear:

The ornaments worn in the ear attract frequencies of Divine Principle and spread them in the person’s body.

These frequencies are also emitted through the ornaments.

Around the ear of the person who wears ear ornaments a protective sheath of Chaitanya is generated.

Sound frequencies are generated from the ear ornaments. Due to these sound frequencies the ear is protected from the negative energies.

  • Spiritual healing occurring on the ear’s internal functional system and reduction in distress by negative energies: Due to movements of some ornaments worn in the ear subtle sound is generated. As a result the distress of negative energies is reduced.
  • Getting protection from negative energies at the time of discarding excreta and urine: According to Hindu dharma, placing the Holy thread on the ear at the time of discarding excreta-urine by men is an important conduct. But this is not necessary for women. Due to their wearing ear ornament, the frequencies of Absolute Fire Principle (Tej-tattva) are generated through the acupressure healing. Hence, the raja-guna dominant woman does not have obstacle in maintaining the awakening of the flow of Tej-tattva. Due to this women are protected from the negative energies.

3. Ear-drop (Kundala)

There are various types of this ornament according to its shape, such as leaf-shaped, conch-shaped, serpent-shaped etc. These eardrops are the symbol of the Radiant Divine Energy.

Importance of kundalas: The goal of man is to be liberated from the bondage of the Great Illusion (Maya) and get immersed in the memory of Brahman continuously. For this various appropriate karmas, sanskaras and rituals have been mentioned at every step in Hindu Dharma. As part of this, the ear is pierced and an ear-drop is worn.

Types of hoop earrings: The hoop earrings worn by women in the ear are circular in shape. The big-sized hoop earrings are more useful. If the earrings are of non-sattvik design, such as a hollow crescent, the women can also get distress, such as feeling depressed and feeling apathetic. Nowadays, most hoop earrings are demonic, that is, tama-dominant. They cause more harm than benefit. Mostly hoop earrings are made of gold. Some women also wear silver hoop earrings.

Spiritual importance of hoop earrings: Due to the void in the hoop earring, the proportion of Nirgun Principle is higher. White formless vibrations are emitted by the hoop earring because of which the mind becomes introverted.

6. Jhumka, a hanging ear ornament

The jhumkas are made of gold or silver. Many types of jhumkas are studded with stones and pearls.

6.1 Importance of wearing a jhumka

A. Attraction of positive circular sound frequencies towards the ears:

  • By wearing small and circular jhumkas the positive circular sound frequencies in the atmosphere are attracted to the ears.
  • One is protected from the distressing sound frequencies emitted in anti-clockwise direction.

B. Generation of protective sheath around the body of the woman and readiness of the Shakti Principle in her to function in the atmosphere:

  • The jhumkas contain Action-energy.
  • Due to their swinging, the Action-energy present in the atmosphere gains momentum.
  • Due to this, a protective high speed raja-dominant sheath of the frequencies is generated around the body of the woman who wears jhumkas.
  • Due to the touch of the frequencies present in the sheath, the Shakti Principle in the woman is activated.
  • This Shakti Principle becomes ready to function in the atmosphere.
  • At the same time due to the jhumkas’ swinging, the voids in the head of the woman are protected from the attacks by the negative energies.

To derive these benefits the jhumka must be sattvik. By wearing them sattvik vibrations are generated. On the contrary, if the jhumkas are of non-sattvik design or art, they cause adverse effects also.

6.2 Subtle effects of wearing a sattvik jhumka in the ear

  • A flow of Divine Principle is attracted in the jhumka. A spiral of Divine Principle is generated in it. The flow of Divine Principle is emitted from the ear-stud of the jhumka to the dangling part of the jhumka. Due to void a spiral of Divine Principle is generated in the jhumka. Particles of Divine Principle are emitted from the jhumka.
  • The ear ornament being sattvik, a flow of Bliss is attracted in it. A flow of Bliss is emitted. A spiral of Bliss is generated in the jhumka. Particles of Bliss are spread in the woman who wears this ornament and are emitted in the environment through the movements of the woman.
  • Flow of Chaitanya is continuously attracted in the jhumka. A spiral of Chaitanya is generated and remains activated. A spiral of Chaitanya is emitted from the ear-stud of the jhumka. A spiral of Chaitanya is generated in the jhumka and it becomes activated. Due to the movements of the jhumka, frequencies of Chaitanya are spread in the environment. Particles of Chaitanya are spread in the body of the woman wearing the jhumka.

By wearing this type of sattvik jhumkas spiritual healing occurs by the acupressure method.

6.3 Vibrations attracted by a sattvik jhumka and its proportion

Vibration Proportion (%)
Chaitanya 3
Bliss 3
Divine Principle 2

6.4 Effect of wearing jhumka with chain on women affected by negative energies

Due to the sattvik design of the jhumka, sattvik vibrations are spread around the ear of the woman through the gold chain. They reduce the black energy of the negative energies affecting the women. Hence, the negative energies give various distresses to women.

6.5 Benefits of wearing gold jhumka with chain

By wearing ear ornaments like jhumka with an upward or downward chain, the capacity of the ear to emit Chaitanya is increased. An average woman gets more benefits by wearing ear ornaments along with a chain whereas those performing sadhana can obtain benefits from ear ornaments even without the chain due to their expressed spiritual emotion (Bhav). Thus by wearing gold earring with chain, the ear of the woman is protected because of the Chaitanya-frequencies emitted from the earring.

6.6 Effect of non-sattvik jhumkas

A. Due to the raja-dominant frequencies emitted from the jhumka through its movement, increase in fickleness of woman and instability of mind: Due to the movements of the woman the jhumkas move. At that time raja frequencies are emitted from the jhumkas. With this the fickleness of the woman increases and her mind becomes unstable.

B. Due to the movement of the jhumka following neck movements, easy emission of black energy:

  • The sorcerers (mantriks), that is, the powerful demonic energies affecting woman create various center in her body.
  • Through the medium of these centers mantriks emit black energy effectively in the atmosphere.
  • For this the mantriks use the ornament of this specific part of the body which moves more; for example, if the mantriks have created a center in the neck, he uses the jhumka.

For this reason it becomes easy for the sorcerers (mantriks) to emit black energy in the entire atmosphere.

C. Usefulness of jhumkas only to women of a specific age: With advancing age the fickleness of woman decreases. So after a certain age the ornaments symbolic of fickleness do not suit women.

7. Studd earrings

The stud earrings are made of gold and are floral-shaped. Some stud earrings are studded with gems, diamonds or precious stones. Frequencies of Sagun energy are emitted from the embedded diamonds. Woman wearing the ornament is benefitted from this energy.

7.1 Lotus petal shaped gold ear ornament studded with pearls

In these types of ear ornaments, the effect of the ornament depends on all the factors such as the lotus petals design, the pearls studded in it and gold.

Effects of lotus petal design of ear ornament: The lotus petals like design is associated with the Action-Energy of Vishnu Principle, while the Sagun-tattva emitted from the lotus is associated with Lakshmi Principle. The lotus petals function by the union of these two. Subtle effect of lotus flower is as follows:

  • From the stalk of the lotus, Action-waves of Srivishnu are emitted towards Hell.
  • Due to these waves, man is protected from the attacks of the negative energies from the core of the earth to the surface of the earth.
  • The lotus petals design is associated more with Lakshmi Principle. The design of this ear ornament is like many petals of a lotus. The spiritual meaning of this is going from one to many. From a spiritual perspective one means God (Brahma) and many means the Great Illusion (Maya). In this way, the design of this ornament depicts the transition from Nirgun to Sagun. Wearing ornaments of this type is symbolic of acquiring God’s Nirgun Energy in Sagun form.

Divine Energy (Shakti) emitted from the large petals of the ear ornament and its usefulness: Shakti element is emitted from big petals. Ear ornaments with big petals are more appropriate for a woman who has the spiritual emotion of a disciple.

Divine Energy (Shakti) emitted from the small petals of the ear ornament and its usefulness: Subtle effect of wearing ear ornaments with small petals is as follows:

  • Saviour (Tarak) vibrations are emitted from the shape of the small petals of the ear ornament. By wearing ear ornaments with such vibrations, a protective circle of saviour (Tarak) vibrations is created around the woman’s body.
  • In the design with small petals, energy gets accumulated in a greater proportion. Hence, such ornaments are more useful for Sagun task, that is, tasks pertaining to Maya

Pearls studded in the stud earrings of lotus petals design: Normally, a pearl is studded in the middle of this ear stud. This pearl is white or yellowish in colour. Nowadays, artificial pearls of various colours are also made. At a spiritual level, there is no special importance of artificial pearls.

Function of pearl: Through the medium of pearl, the waves in the form of the Absolute Water element (Apa-tattva) get activated. Therefore, through the pearl, high speed waves laden with the Absolute Water element (Apa-tattva) are emitted into the environment. Through the touch of pearl, the Chetana present in the person is transmitted even more in the body. The waves of the Absolute Water element (Apa-tattva) emitted through the medium of pearl affect the subtle sheaths of negative energies and reduce their ability to combat. Due to the pearl a person’s body becomes more capable of absorbing and emitting the waves of the positive energies present in the environment.

Difference between white and yellow pearl:

  • White pearl has more transparency. As compared to it, there is less transparency in yellow pearl.
  • White pearl can emit waves of Absolute Water element (Apa-tattva) in a greater proportion, while a yellow pearl can emit it in a lesser proportion.
  • White pearl is capable of combating with mighty demonic energies of superior type whereas yellow pearl is capable of fighting against mighty demoic energies of inferior type.

Women are more sensitive as compared to men in absorbing the positive and distressing waves or energies in the environment. For protection from negative energies wearing pearl ornaments is more beneficial.

Important points about wearing pearl and gold ornaments: By using gold and pearl in ornaments, due to the Tej of gold, the efficiency of pearl reduces. That is why, one should use ornaments with more pearls and very less gold.

7.2 Pearl stud earrings

In this gold stud earring, there is a big pearl in the centre and small pearls are studded around it in a circular manner. The subtle effect of these ear studs are:

  • Due to the round shape and white colour of pearl Divine Principle is attracted in these stud earrings.
  • Light yellow spirals of Sagun-Nirgun Chaitanya are emitted through it.
  • Due to these spirals, a protective sheath is created around the ear.

7.3 Some other types of stud earrings

These are sacred Fig (Pipal) leaf shaped stud earrings. By wearing them one feels enthusiastic. These are wheel shaped gold stud earrings with central floral design. Good vibrations are experienced from them. These are gold stud earrings with black precious stones in the centre. By wearing them, a protective sheath is created around the woman wearing them. Another type of stud earrings is gold stud earrings. Wearing them reduces the covering on the intellect.

Spiritual Experience: Accuracy in all psychological and intellectual actions after wearing earrings: On 25th September 2006, after wearing gold earrings I was doing all psychological and intellectual actions accurately. On removing them, I reverted to my basic temperament. – Sadhak

8. Wearing one or more ear ornaments

Subtle experiment: Look at the pictures ‘A’ and ‘B’ below with concentration. Pay attention to what you feel – Good, distress or nothing at all.

Figure A
Figure B
Figure A Figure B

Answer to the subtle experiment: One feels good by looking at picture ‘A’. The woman shown in the picture has worn only one type of ear ornament. One experiences distress by looking at picture ‘B’. The woman shown in the picture has worn many ornaments along the ear pinna.

Effect of wearing one ear ornament: Raja-tama dominant waves are emitted from the hole of the ear. With the touch of the gold ornament worn on the earlobe, the Tej present in the ornament is accumulated in the pores of the skin of the ear. In this way, the raja-tama dominant waves are controlled.

Effects of piercing the pinna at more than one place and wearing ornaments:

Tej accumulated in the subtle skin pores in the fringe of the pinna. On piercing the pinna at more than one place, the proportion of this Energy reduces. Due to this, the protective sheath around the ear is broken. As a result, the proportion of transmission of Energy in the form of black air by the negative energies through the void of the ear increases. By piercing the ear at more than one place the head, neck and throat disorders in the women increase.

Being ignorant of this aspect, many women pierce the fringe of the pinna and wear various earrings like stud earrings, hoop earrings etc. In this way they cause harm to themselves. This also includes the ancient tradition of women wearing ‘Kanakakali’, an ornament worn on the helix. From a spiritual perspective, piercing the helix and wearing a Kankakali is considered an inferior conduct.

Spiritual experience: Experience of lightness in the ears after wearing only one type of ear ornament instead of many: In January 2008, one day I wore many ear ornaments. Saint said, “How many ear ornaments have you worn!” As per Achardharma, wearing one ornament in each ear is considered sattvik. As per His advice, I immediately removed the extra ear ornaments. After that I felt lightness in my ears. – Sadhak

What do the two strings of black beads in the mangalsutra represent?

Contents


1. Mangalsutra

As per Hindu Dharma, mangalsutra is an ornament of a woman denoting her married status. Each person makes a mangalsutra for the bride as per his capacity. If it is not possible to make a mangalsutra with a cord of gold or silver, they make it by stringing black beads in a thread.

1.1 Importance of Mangalsutra

  • Due to the mangalsutra the woman remains conscious of Dharma, duty and rules. Wearing mangalsutra is an important conduct for a married woman. This is called code of Righteousness for women. Due to this the woman does not indulge in wanton behaviour and her conduct remains ideal.
  • Due to the mangalsutra the woman and others are conscious of her married status. Mangalsutra is a marital bondage. Its main objective is that the woman should remember this sacred bondage and there should not be any immoral behaviour on her part. That others should also be conscious that the woman wearing a mangalsutra is a married woman and she should be respected properly is also an objective of the mangalsutra.
  • Due to the mangalsutra the consciousness of the husband in the form of Shiva remains constantly awakened in the woman.
  • Mangalsutra is symbolic of Shiva and Shakti. In this, gold is in the form of Shakti and the structure of stringed black beads is in the form of Shiva.
  • Mangalsutra is an ornament that attracts Divine Principle in highest proportion. In the mangalsutra both the cups are empty from one side and are raised from the other. The mangalsutra is worn facing the empty side to her body. The Divine Principle is attracted in the voids of the cups in higher proportion than any other ornaments.
  • Through the mangalsutra the woman gains Energy of Desire, Action and Knowledge. The mangalsutra is a link that provides Shakti in the form of the Absolute Fire Element (Tej) to the woman to actually perform a task.
Sattvik Mangalsutra

   

In the left part of the mangalsutra there is flow of Energy of Desire, in the central part of Energy of Action and in the right part of Energy of Knowledge.

From the mangalsutra the Desire, Action and Knowledge Energies are also emitted.

With the help of the Desire, Action and Knowledge energies, it becomes easy for a woman to proceed towards Nirgun Principle.

  • Due to the mangalsutra and kantha-mani the Vishuddha-chakra remains constantly awakened. One of the types of mangalsutra is Kanthamani mangalsutra. The gold bead stringed in its centre is called Kanthamani. It is near the Vishuddha-chakra. It is also called Muhurtamani.

    The waves of the Absolute Fire Principle (Tej-tattva) of the Universe are attracted to the kantha-mani worn by the woman around the neck.

    Due to these waves, the Vishuddha-chakra constantly remains awakened.

    Nowadays it is customary to remove the Muhurtamani worn around the bride’s neck 16 days after the marriage. Kanthamani is considered a form of Shiva and hence it is symbolic of the sense of detachment of the woman. When the energy of Anahat-chakra flows towards Vishuddha-chakra, it merges in the awakened Vishuddha-chakra by touching the Kanthamani.

1.2 Structure of mangalsutra with a kantha-mani and the gold cups

The length of the mangalsutra should be such that it reaches the Anahat-chakra or the centre of the chest. As the length of the mangalsutra is up to the Anahat-chakra, due to the sattvikta in the mangalsutra the increased raja-guna in the woman is reduced. As a result, the attitude of detachment is generated in her. With this it becomes possible for the woman to dwell in the present constantly.

Subtle experiment about two types of Mangalsutras: Look at the pictures ‘A’ and ‘B’ below with concentration. Note what you feel by looking at them – good, distress or nothing at all.

Figure A

   

Figure B
Figure A Figure B

Answer to subtle experiment: One feels good by looking at the mangalsutra in picture ‘A’. This mangalsutra has a sattvik design. One feels distressed by looking at the mangalsutra in picture ‘B’. This mangalsutra has a demonic design.

According to the principle of Spirituality that, ‘Word, touch, form, taste, fragrance and the Divine Principle associated with them co-exist’, due to the sattvik design of the mangalsutra shown in the photograph ‘A’, sattvik vibrations are generated. The sattvikta of the woman wearing such types of mangalsutra is increased because of which his distress by the negative energies is reduced. Contrary to this, due to the demonic design of the mangalsutra in photograph ‘B’ negative vibrations are generated. Due to the negative vibrations, it becomes easy for the sorcerers (mantriks) to acquire black energy. It is evident from this that the structure and design of a mangalsutra should be sattvik.

1.3 Why is the empty part of the central cups of the mangalsutra placed towards the Anahat-chakra?

In the centre of the mangalsutra there are two cups. The cups should be round and there should not be any design on its front part.

  • Round shape is associated with zero, that is, with the Brahman consisting of void. The ability to absorb and emit the waves of specific level as per the need of the person is more in the round shape compared to the other shapes.
  • Round shape is symbolic of Energy of Knowledge.
  • Round shape is associated with the sattva-guna in the form of Shiva-Shakti.
  • The central point of the round shape provides waves in the form of striking Shakti (Energy) whereas the raised part is associated with Brahman in the form of Shiva.

At both sides of each cup there are two round beads of gold. This structure is associated with the Energy of Knowledge.

The subtle effect of the structure is:

  • The waves of emotions are activated in the Anahat-chakra of the woman.
  • The waves of Energy of Knowledge are attracted towards the circular figure of the voids of the cups of the mangalsutra.
  • The waves of Knowledge assimilate the waves of the woman’s emotions.

By this process the woman’s actions (karmas) become non-actions (akarmas), that is, the law of action-and-fruit is not applicable to the karmas done by the woman because of which the awareness of doership of the woman reduces.

The four petal flowers above the cups of the mangalsutra:

  • Above every cup of the mangalsutra, there is a figure of four petal flower. This is associated with the Action energy.
  • The vibrations of the woman’s Energy of Action solidify in the round beads and are in the forefront in functioning as per the need.
  • It helps generate a protective sheath near the Anahat-chakra of the woman.

1.4 Why should there be no design on the raised front part of the cups?

If there is no design on the front part of the cups, there is no restriction on the ability of the structure to absorb and emit the Absolute Fire Element (Tej-tattva) in gold. Similarly the gold cups and the bead of the mangalsutra being design-free, its ability to absorb and emit the Chaitanya in the Universe increases. Hence, the woman is protected from the attacks of the negative energies.

1.5 Why are two strings of black beads present in the mangalsutra?

The two strands of black beads of mangalsutra symbolise Shiva and Shakti. From the task performed by the union of Shiva and Shakti, one gains fruit in the form of Chaitanya. This gain of fruit is depicted in the form of the central gold cups that join the strands. The two strands of mangalsutra symbolise duality. Duality means continuity of task. The two strands of the beads are used from this perspective also. The rectangular shaped void created in one part of the two strands of black beads attracts the waves of Energy of Desire. The nine black beads stringed in each part of the strand symbol-ise the nine forms of the Primal Energy (Adishakti). The black beads stringed in the gold cord collect the negative vibrations of the attack of negative energies on the body of the woman from time to time and destroy them.

There are seven parts of nine black beads each in both the strands of the mangalsutra. In order to demonstrate these parts, four gold round-shaped beads are arranged in a square shape as a central link. With this the Shakti Principle in the woman remains in a constantly activated state and it is protected from the attacks by negative energies.

1.6 Importance of structure of mangalsutra

In the mangalsutra there are two gold cups in the centre, one gold bead at their each side and then black beads are strung. In each of the two strands of the mangalsutra nine beads followed by two gold beads are strung. Due to the black beads strung in the mangalsutra the woman is harmed to some extent.

  • Waves of black energy associated with the Absolute Earth and Water element are attracted to the black beads of the mangalsutra.
  • A cover of these waves is generated around the body of the woman.
  • Through the black beads waves of black energy are emitted in the atmosphere.

Due to the covering of black energy waves there is distress like pain, giddiness, restlessness etc. Considering the harm, one may wonder why the black beads should be used. Though there is 30 percent harm due to the black beads strung in the mangalsutra, there is 70 percent benefit also. The reason for this is that mangalsutra is beaded with a thin wire of gold. The gold wire destroys the distressing vibrations present in the Universe through its Energy of the Absolute Fire element (Tej-Shakti).

The reason for the destruction of distressing vibrations by the Tej-Shakti of gold: The use of black beads and gold in mangalsutra is akin to amulet, that is, talisman. For alleviation of distress by negative energies, an amulet or a talisman is worn around the neck. The black thread of the amulet attracts the black energy and the Holy ash in the amulet destroys it. In a mangalsutra black beads are used in place of black thread and gold in the place of Holy ash. When a woman with more than 50 percent spiritual level wears a mangalsutra the ability of the gold in it to emit the Absolute Fire Element (Tej-tattva) remains awakened.

  • The structure of the cups and the beads strung on both sides of the mangalsutra are associated with the woman’s Energy of procreation. One cup and the beads at its sides make a figure of a triangle. This figure keeps the woman’s Energy of procreation continuously awakened. Energy of procreation is the Energy spreading enthusiasm continuously in the entire Universe through the medium of Creation. Thereby, she constantly remains in a loving mode.
  • The round shape of the mangalsutra awakens the woman’s Central channel (Sushumna-nadi). The elliptical shape of the mangalsutra is associated with the unmanifest Energy of Action of Srivishnu. This shape awakens the Central channel (Sushumna-nadi) of the woman. Hence, it helps the prakruti in the form of woman to merge with Shiv in the form of man. As per the design of the mangalsutra, its effect is expressed either at the Sagun or Nirgun level.

In the mangalsutra of Sagun design, in each thread after every nine black beads, two gold beads are strung. For the woman wearing a mangalsutra of Sagun design to acquire its complete benefit, her minimum spiritual level has to be 30 percent.

In the mangalsutra of Nirgun design, only black beads are strung and gold beads are not present. For the woman wearing a mangalsutra of Nirgun design to acquire its complete benefit, her minimum spiritual level has to be 50 percent.

Importance of use of mangalsutra of Sagun and Nirgun level by a woman affected by negative energy:

  Sagun
level
Nirgun
level
1. Distress by ghosts,
    ancestors etc.
50% 20%
2. Distress by sorcerers
    (mantriks)
30% 30%

If there is distress due to sorcerers (mantriks), that is, the powerful demonic energies of the Hell, the woman can wear mangalsutra either of Sagun or Nirgun design. Women of more than 60 percent spiritual level should wear mangalsutra of Nirgun level for protection from the mantriks of the sixth or seventh Hell.

1.7 Benefits of gold beads strung in the mangalsutra

  • Waves of the Absolute Fire Element (Tej-tattva) in the Universe are attracted to the gold beads of the mangalsutra.
  • Due to the black beads, waves of black energy are attracted which are disintegrated by the Tej-tattva waves emitted by the gold.
  • A protective sheath is generated around the woman’s body.
  • The Sun-channel (Surya-nadi) of the woman remains in an activated state because of which the Energy Principle (Shakti-tattva) inherent in it is awakened.

Due to disintegration of the black energy attracted to the black beads, the woman is less affected by evil eye. With this the importance of gold in destroying the negative vibrations with Tej-Shakti is evident.

1.8 Why do we say that mangalsutra has lost its sanctity, if it breaks?

Many a times, a mangalsutra can break without any apparent reason. Breaking of a mangalsutra is a bad omen. On breaking the beads get charged with black energy, that is, due to the black energy their weight increases. Sattvikta of the beads is lost. From this sense, the action or act of breaking of a mangalsutra amounts to it losing its sanctity.

Effect of breaking of a mangalsutra without any reason: Breaking of a mangalsutra is a symptom of severe distress arising out of black magic performed on a woman. As a result, there is a possibility that the woman will have fatal thoughts of self-harm, suicide, death in an accident, killing someone etc. In this process, the mantriks kill the husband with black magic and transmit black energy on the wife too. The mantriks make a replica doll of the woman and transmit black energy on it through some ritual. Then distressing vibrations are also transmitted into the objects associated with the woman, which are attracted by the black beads of the mangalsutra. As a result, the mangalsutra breaks. Only God or Guru’s grace can protect from all such distress.

Spiritual experience: Breaking of the new small mangalsutra within fifteen days and the bigger mangalsutra too eight days later: On the night of 12th November 2008, her small mangalsutra suddenly broke and the beads scattered. This mangalsutra with a small muhurtamani was earlier strung in a thread and just fifteen days earlier, she had got it strung in gold. She wondered if this had happened due to the distress caused by negative energies ! Thereafter, on 19th November 2008, the bigger mangalsutra around her neck also broke. This example validates the precept that ‘The mangalsutra can break due to distress caused by negative energies’. – A seeker.

1.9 Why Scriptures do not allow widows to wear a mangalsutra?

There are two chief reasons for this.

  • Waves / Vibrations associated with the husband’s desire are present in the mangalsutra, due to which the subtle body of the deceased husband can get trapped: Waves associated with the husband’s desire are present in the mangalsutra. After the death of the husband, some women continue to wear mangalsutra as fashion. Thus, with the help of the vibrations associated with the husband’s desires, his subtle body can get trapped.
  • Onward journey of the subtle body of the husband is obstructed: Looking at the mangalsutra reminds the woman of her husband and his subtle body has to return to the Earth region. Hence, the onward journey of the subtle body of the husband is obstructed.

‘So what if my husband is no more?’, with this thought intellectual women nowadays continue to wear the mangalsutra even after they are widowed. This act harms the woman as well as her deceased husband at the spiritual level. Hence, one should determinedly abide by religious Conduct. Mangalsutra is a marital bond. Its objective is to remind the woman of this bond and restrain her from behaving as per her own wishes.

1.10 Why do men not have to wear a mangalsutra?

Every Conduct for men and women has been propounded with a specific objective. If wearing a mangalsutra is Dharma for women, wearing a Janeu (sacred thread) is Dharma for men. On this, some people may question why is there no custom for men to wear a mangalsutra?

Since in Karmakanda, man is recognized as a father-figure, the possibility of adultery by him is less. The nature of men is basically strong, determined and conducive for leadership. Hence, in the performance of Karmakanda, the man is recognised as a father-figure. Due to the authority as a father, the possibility adultery is less. In society men are more adulterous than women. If this be so, why is it said that the possibility of adultery by man is less ?

Compared to a woman, a man’s attitude is less emotional, more introverted and rational. So there is less possibility of his being adulterous / wilful. Yet various Conducts have been prescribed for him in Hindu Dharma. In Kaliyug, men and women are equally adulterous. In this situation, what should men do to acquire the same benefits as that of wearing a mangalsutra? The answer is that when the man carries out his father-figure duties and inculcates an attitude of listening to others, it will foster unity in the family. Holy thread (Janeuu) worn by him will remind him of his father-figure duties.

From the above table one can realise that the benefits of wearing a gold chain are more. Many women wear a gold chain instead of a mangalsutra. Some women wear a mangalsutra in which there are two cups, with beads strung on both sides.

3. Why is a gold chain not used in place of a mangalsutra?

The black beads in the mangalsutra contain waves of the Absolute Earth (Pruthvi-tattva) and Absolute Water (Apa-tattva) elements and the gold beads contain waves of the Absolute Fire element (Tej-tattva). With the union of these waves, Raja-Tama-dominant waves associated with inferior negative energies are eliminated from their origin. Hence, an average woman who wears a mangalsutra gets the ability to tolerate the war-like effects of destruction of Raja-Tama-dominant waves.

However, the Tej element dominant waves emitted by the gold affect the superior negative energies. An average woman does not possess the ability to tolerate their attacks. Hence, there is a possibility of distress to the woman. Therefore, instead of a chain, it is beneficial for a sensitive woman to wear a mangalsutra. Unmarried women and men also wear a gold chain. They too can experience distress, such as increase in body-heat.

 

How are necklaces with specific design and length more beneficial?

Contents


1. Necklace

The functioning of the waves associated with spiritual emotion and emotions takes place in the middle of Vishuddha-chakra and Anahat-chakra respectively. For all people to benefit, necklaces that are short and long in length, are available everywhere in larger numbers. Some main types of necklaces are:

  • Mohanmala: This is made of gold. Its length is upto the middle of the chest.
  • Lakshmihar: This is also made of gold. Gold coins with a portrait of Sri Lakshmidevi engraved on them are strung in a Lakshmihar.
  • Motimala: This is made of pearls.

Subtle effects on a woman who wears a necklace are:

  • The necklace made of gold, with a sattvik design, attracts a flow of Bliss (Anand) to it. A spiral of Bliss is created and activated in the pendant by this flow. In each small leaf of the design in the necklace, a spiral of Bliss is created and activated. From these spirals, particles of Bliss are transmitted in the body of the woman and in the environment.

  • Due to the gold and the sattvik design, a flow of Chaitanya is also attracted to the necklace. A spiral of Manifest (Sagun) Chaitianya is created and activated in the pendant of the necklace. A spiral of Chaitanya is emitted by the pendant. A protective sheath of Chaitanya is created around the necklace. Semi-circular waves of Chaitanya are emitted by the necklace. A protective sheath of Chaitanya is created around the woman wearing the necklace.
  • Divine Energy (Shakti) is experienced from each small leaf of the necklace. Due to this, spirals of Saviour Energy (Tarak Shakti) are created and activated.

Proportion of vibrations attracted to the gold necklace:

Vibrations Proportion (%)
1. Shakti 1
2. Chaitanya 3
3. Anand 2

From this it is evident that it is beneficial for a woman to wear a gold necklace.

Benefits of wearing a necklace:

  • The Vishuddha, Anahat and Swadhishthan chakras in the woman are protected. These chakras obtain Chaitanya from the necklace. Due to the Chaitanya of the necklace, the frontal portion of the woman from the throat to the stomach is protected.
  • Ego of the woman reduces. Due to the necklace, the woman’s neck bows a little. This assists in reducing her ego and increasing humility in her.

Depending on the length of the necklace and the design on it, vibrations of each necklace differ. Having a specific design as per the length of the necklace provides more benefit.

1.1 Necklace of length upto the Vishuddha-chakra

A necklace associated with Vishuddha-chakra, with a circular design is sattvik; because, sattvik waves of knowledge are attracted to the shape of circular designs. Some examples are – Kanthi, Thushi, Natai, Guluband etc.

1.2 Necklace of length upto the Anahat-chakra

Mohanmaal

Lakshmihar

A necklace associated with Anahat-chakra should have a petal-shaped design. The Anahat-chakra is awakened by the touch of the waves in the form of Energy of Action (Kriya-Shakti), attracted to the shape of the petals. Mohanmaal, Pohehar and Bormala are some examples of necklaces with a petal-shaped design, associated with and reaching upto the Anahat-chakra . Other examples of necklaces reaching upto the Anahat-chakra are Shrimanthar, Jondhalepot etc.

Spiritual experience regarding effects of the sattvik ornament, Mohanmaal: While wearing the Mohanmaal around the neck, I had a vision of Srikrushna. I felt that the Chaitanya of the mala was flowing down from one chakra to another. At the same time, I felt good sensations at my Brahmarandhra. After wearing the mala, my lethargy decreased and there was an increase in my enthusiasm. I felt that devotion and spiritual emotion were being created in me due to the Mohanmala. – Ms. Ranjana Gavas

Lakshmihar: Gold coins with a portrait of Sri Lakshmidevi engraved on them are strung in this necklace. Hence, it is called a ‘Lakshmihar’.

Spiritual experience upon wearing a Lakshmihar: One day in 2008, I wore a Lakshmihar around the neck. When the necklace touched my sari, I felt that the Deity Principle had touched me. I experienced good sensations from my stomach to the throat and on the Anahat-chakra. I saw a white orb at the region of my heart. Thereafter, this white orb merged into the transparency of the environment. After some time, I could not see any part of my body, except the transparent orb. At that time, the thoughts in me reduced. – Ms. Ranjana Gavas

Since the coins in the Lakshmihar contain Sri Lakshmidevi’s portrait, sattvik vibrations and waves of Devi Principle are emitted from the necklace. It is because of this that the lady seeker had a good spiritual experience upon wearing it.

1.3 Necklace of length upto the Manipur-chakra

Manipur-chakra is also called Nabhi-chakra, since it is at the navel (Nabhi). It will be apparent from this, that these necklaces are of length upto the navel. Chandrahar and Suryahar are two examples of necklaces of length upto the Manipur-chakra.

1.4 Gold necklace with seven pendants

Vibrations in the

1. Shakti (Divine Energy) 50
2. Chaitanya (Divine

3. Anand (Bliss) 20
4. Shanti (Peace) 10
Total 100

From this table, importance of a necklace with seven pendants is understood.

1.5 String of pearls

String of pearls is worn by both, women and men. Like the gold ornaments, pearl necklaces too are of different lengths. Pearl necklaces of different lengths are worn, such as around the neck, that is, at the level of Vishuddha-chakra upto the chest, that is, at the level of Anahat-chakra and upto the navel, that is, at the level of Manipur-chakra.

Vibrations and their proportion, generated in a string of pearls depending on its length

Vibrations Proportion (%)

2. Anand (Bliss) 40 30 20
3. Shanti (Peace) 30 20 10
Total 100 100 100

It is evident from the above table that by wearing a string of pearls of length upto the Vishuddha-chakra one gets the benefit of vibrations of Bliss (Anand) and Peace (Shanti) in a larger proportion. If the length of the string of pearls is upto the Anahat-chakra or upto the Manipur-chakra, then one gets the benefit of the vibrations of Chaitanya in a larger proportion.

Effect of a string of pearls on the centers of negative energies in the Kundalini chakras in a woman and a man

Woman Man
1. Vishuddha-chakra 30% 30%
2. Anahat-chakra 35% 40%
3. Manipur-chakra 65% 70%
4. Swadhishthan-chakra 55% 60%
5. Muladhar-chakra 45% 50%

When a woman affected by negative energies wears a string of pearls, the black energy of the mantrik in her reduces. That is, spiritual healing takes place on the woman due to the string of pearls.

Spiritual experience: One day in 2006, a woman affected by negative energy wore a string of pearls. At that time, veins on her scalp stretched. In reality, after wearing the string of pearls, the mantrik, i.e. the powerful negative energy from Hell, troubling the woman was getting greatly distressed. The distress experienced by the woman was the result of the distress being experienced by the mantrik. After sometime, the distress of the woman reduced and she started feeling better. It will be evident that spiritual healing occurs through the string of pearls.

Why are glass bangles preferred over plastic bangles?

Contents


1. Ornaments worn by a woman on the hands

Some main types of ornaments are:

  • Bahubandha worn on the arm.
  • Bangles worn on the wrists. There are various types of bangles, such as glass-bangles, gold-bangles, patali, toda etc.
  • An ornament worn on a finger is the ring. Generally, it is worn on the anamika or the ring finger.

2. Bahubandha (keyur)

Since this ornament is worn on the ‘Bahu’, that is, the arm, it is called a Bahubandha. This is made of gold or silver. It is studded with precious stones. Bahubandhas studded with pearls are also available. Bahubandha is also known as keyur, bahubhusha, bhujaband and vanki. Wearing these ornaments is important for various reasons.

  • The hand gets the energy to function. Waves of Devi Principle are active in the Bahubandha. These waves are absorbed by the arm and are spread to the whole hand.
  • Through the Bahubandha, the woman obtains the Saviour (Tarak) or Destroyer (Marak) energy of Sri Saraswatidevi as per the requirement. Radiant waves are emitted by the shiny precious stones studded in the Bahubandha. These waves match the Energy of Action (Kriya-Shakti) of Sri Saraswatidevi. They impart coolness to women who are not affected by negative energies and heat to women affected by negative energies. The seven rays emitted by the Bahubandha are symbolic of the Energy of Sri Saraswatidevi, active in Saviour or Destroyer form.
  • The sound (Nad) emitted from the Bahubandha functions in varying proportion, depending on the spiritual emotion (Bhav) of the woman and makes her aware of her true nature. The sound emitted from the Bahubandha provides Divine Energy (Shakti), Divine consciousness (Chaitanya), Bliss (Anand) and Peace (Shanti) to the woman who wears it. The three small bells attached to the Bahubandha symbolise God’s Energy of Will (Ichha-Shakti), Action (Kriya-Shakti) and Knowledge (Dnyan-Shakti). Depending on the spiritual emotion (Bhav) of the woman, these small bells make her aware of her true nature.
  • A protective sheath is created on the arm due to the Bahubandha. Due to the sattvikta, the Devi Principle and Divine consciousness (Chaitanya) in the Bahubandha, the woman is protected from attacks of negative energies in the atmosphere.

Effects of wearing a Bahubandha made of gold:

  • Chaitanya is attracted to the precious stones studded in the Bahubandha.

  • This Chaitanya circulates in the Bahubandha.
  • An activated spiral of Shakti circulates in the Bahubandha.
  • Rays of Shakti are emitted into the environment by this spiral.

Spiritual experience of effects of wearing a Bahubandha: One day I wore a Bahubandha. I experienced that black energy was leaving my body from the head, throat, vertebrae and below the waist, upto the legs. After that, blue light spread in my entire body. After some time, this blue light transformed into white light and my entire body was filled with it. – Ms. Ranjana Gavas

The important point to remember here is that, sattvik vibrations were emitted because the Bahubandha had a sattvik design. Due to these vibrations, the black energy in Ms. Ranjana’s body reduced and she also had good spiritual experiences.

3. Bangles

Kankan, that is, bangles are an important ornament for spinsters as well as married women. Since ancient times, there is a tradition of making bangles, that is, kangan from various metals, glass, conch, sealing-wax and ivory.

  • In Punjab, bangles made of ivory and in Bengal bangles made of conch have special importance.
  • In Uttar Pradesh, wearing of a red sari and red bangles by the bride at the time of the wedding is considered auspicious.
  • In states like Maharashtra, Karnataka etc., wearing of green glass bangles by the bride at the time of the wedding has special importance.

Subtle experiment regarding glass and plastic bangles: First keep glass bangles in front of you. Concentrate on them and pay attention to what you feel while looking at them for 15 seconds – good, distressed or nothing at all. Repeat the process for plastic bangles and see what you feel.

Answer to subtle experiment: One feels good while looking at glass bangles. One experiences distress while looking at the plastic bangles.

3.1 Effects of plastic and glass bangles

Plastic bangles: Plastic bangles are Raja-Tama-dominant. Hence, Raja-Tama-dominant vibrations in the environment are attracted to such bangles and are absorbed by the woman who wears them. As a result, there is a possibility of the woman experiencing distress such as pressure on the head or the body, fatigue etc. This explains why one feels distress while looking at plastic bangles.

Glass bangles: Glass bangles have sattvikta, Devi Principle and Chaitanya in them. Due to these, sattvik and Chaitanya-dominant waves in the environment are attracted to the glass bangles. In addition, due to the sound generated by the glass bangles, the negative energies back off. This explains why one feels good while looking at glass bangles.

It is evident from this experiment that it is more beneficial for a woman to wear glass bangles, rather than plastic bangles. Out of ignorance about this science, today many women wear plastic bangles. Fashion is also one of the reasons for this. Some women wear plastic bangles because the glass bangles break often. In doing this, they deprive themselves of the benefit that is obtained from wearing glass bangles, and harm themselves.

3.2 Benefits of sound waves created by glass bangles

  • Due to the subtle weapons emitted from the sound waves of the bangles, the motor organs of the woman are protected.
  • The sattvikta (Sattva predominant) of the woman’s motor organs increases.
  • A sheath of waves of Action-Energy (Kriya-Shakti) emitted by the bangles is generated around the woman’s body and she is protected from the negative energies.
  • The Divine Energy Principle (Shakti-tattva) is activated in the woman and her body sheaths are purified; similarly, the premises too gets purified.

Due the movement of the bangles, the woman’s Raja component increases. This Raja component activates the Primal Energy Principle (Adishakti-tattva) in the woman’s body. The woman’s body benefits from the awakened Shakti-tattva, helping in purifying her vital body and mental body sheaths. As the waves of Adishakti spread into the atmosphere, the Raja-Tama particles in the premises disintegrate and the premises gets purified.

Subtle process about the protection from negative energies is as follows:

  • Due to union of the action waves present in the bangles, they are charged with the waves of Kriya-Shakti.

  • Due to the touch of the waves of Kriya-Shakti, the Sun channel (Surya-nadi) of the woman is activated.
  • Waves of Shakti are emitted into the atmosphere from the Sun channel.
  • Due to the waves of Kriya-Shakti emitted by the bangles, a rapidly moving protective sheath of Raja waves is generated around the woman’s body.
  • That is how, the woman is protected from negative energies present in the atmosphere.

3.3 Number of bangles to be worn

The bangles are worn in each hand in a specific number. As a result, a specific Shakti is created.

Number of
bangles
Type of Shakti
generated
3 Tarak
6 Tarak-Marak
8 Marak-Tarak
12 Marak

From this viewpoint, it is important for a woman of a particular age to wear bangles in a specific number.

Importance of girls wearing three, or less bangles: Shakti is present in girls in an unmanifest form. Also, they have lesser impressions (sanskars) in them. Vibrations of Saviour Energy (Tarak-Shakti) are active in girls. By wearing three or less bangles, a slight inertia indicating sound is created in the bangles. Due to this sound, the girl gets the strength to perform a task.

Science underlying wearing of more bangles by a newly married woman: Destroyer (Marak) waves are created by the sound of the bangles worn in larger numbers by a newly married woman. With the help of these waves, the newly married woman is protected from the evil-eye and attacks of negative energies.

3.4 Various colours of bangles and their features

Vibrations of the glass bangles change according to their colour.

A. Green glass bangles: Green colour depicts continuous speed or pace that is Chetna, through the medium of the Energy of Action (Kriya-Shakti).That is why trees are of green colour. Kriya-Shakti in the Universe is attracted to the green colour particles in the leaves. Similar benefits are obtained by a woman who wears green bangles.

Wearing of green bangles by married women is indicative of their chastity. This is symbolic of worshipping the manifest form of the Divine Energy (Shakti) with its ornaments. Waves of Female Deity (Devi) Principle are active in the green bangles. These waves are absorbed by the wrists and spread to the entire hand. Due to the sattvikta, Devi Principle and Chaitanya in the bangles, a protective sheath is created around the wrist and fingers, and they are protected from negative energies.

The activity taking place at the subtle level due to the green bangles:

  • Particles of Bliss (Anand) spread into the body of the woman, through the bangles.
  • Waves of Divine Energy (Shakti) spread into the body of the woman, through the bangles.

B. Red glass bangles: The Destroyer Principle (Marak-tattva) from the waves in the form of Energy of Action (Kriya-Shakti) of the Primal Energy (Adishakti) present in the Universe is attracted to the bangles worn by women. Due to the red colour of the bangles, there is an increase in the proportion of attraction of the Destroyer Principle of the Adishakti. There are many shades of red colour, such as dark-red, blood-red, copper-red, brownish-red etc. Depending on every colour, there is a change in their vibrations and effects.

Some women wear shiny green colour bangles with designs on them, while some women wear such bangles without any designs on them. Raja-Tama-dominant vibrations are emitted by these bangles. As a result, lustful thoughts or thoughts of fame are created in the woman’s mind. Due to the golden designs on the bangles, obstacles are created in the absorption of Divine Principle in the bangles. Even in the bangles without designs, the Divine Principle is attracted only in a small proportion due to their shiny colour. It will be clear from this, that the golden designs and the shiny colour do not give benefit of the Divine Principle. Instead of such bangles, one should wear bangles without designs on them and which have a smooth surface.

3.5 Why wearing a watch on one hand and bangles on the other is inappropriate?

The subtle sound emitted by the watch attracts negative energies. As a result, by wearing a watch instead of bangles, there is a possibility of the woman getting distressed by negative energies.

Difference in the effects of wearing a watch and bangles on the wrists:

Wearing a watch Wearing bangles
1. Nature Raja-Tama-dominant Sattvik
2. Creation of
sound (Nad)
Distressing Full of Chaitanya
3. Attracts Negative energies Divine energy
4. Generation of

Through distressing
waves
Through waves
full of Chaitanya
5. Effect in the
context of
negative
energies
Experiencing distress Protection from
negative energies
6. Effect on the
environment
Gets polluted Gets purified

It will be clear from the above table, that wearing a watch not only produces an asattvik clicking sound, but also attracts distress of negative energies; therefore, it is more beneficial to wear bangles that protect the woman through the sound generated from their sattvik tinkling. Nowadays as per the need of the modern era, one can wear a wrist watch and bangles together.

3.6 Reason for the sudden cracking or breaking of bangles

Through the glass bangles, spiritual healing takes place on a woman. In this, women who are affected by negative energies have to face various kinds of distress.

  • Not feeling like wearing bangles
  • Getting fever or other physical distress upon wearing bangles
  • Despite wearing tight bangles, their slipping out by themselves
  • Bangles breaking frequently
  • Bangles breaking unexpectedly, causing injury to the hand and due to this the woman not being able to wear bangles etc.

Many women would have experienced that bangles unexpectedly develop cracks, that is, break without any reason. Sorcerers (mantriks), that is, powerful negative energies from the fourth region of Hell transmit black energy with a great speed. This transmission is impactful. The speed creates sound. When a bangle comes into contact with this sound, it unexpectedly cracks. When a bangle breaks without any reason, it indicates a battle between powerful negative energies and the ornaments. Sometimes, when one is not even aware of the breaking of the bangle, it is broken by a negative energy only.

3.7 Reason for not wearing a cracked or a broken bangle, as per the spiritual science

Broken bangles create distressing and impactful vibrations. There is a possibility of negative energies getting attracted to such bangles. As a result, the possibility of distress of negative energies to the woman also increases.

Spiritual experience of a seeker, when her bangles developed cracks: On 27th September 2008, a bangle in the hand of a lady-seeker broke unexpectedly. In the same manner, on 29th September 2008, one more bangle of the lady-seeker broke. The lady-seeker conducted a subtle analysis of this occurrence. She realised that due to breaking of the bangle, black energy was entering the void between the bangle and the hand. The entire bangle was charged with black energy. The black energy began to slowly flow in an upward direction on the hands and then spread to the entire body. The lady-seeker became restless. Her restlessness reduced only after removing the bangle.

From this spiritual experience of the lady-seeker, it is evident that the negative energies gain control over the mind and intellect of a woman who wears a cracked bangle. As a result, distress like experiencing restlessness, negative thoughts entering the mind etc. may take place.

3.8 Reason for negative energies attacking the bangle

When a woman wears a bangle, a kind of void is created around her wrist. Due to this void, this medium is helpful in spiritual healing through the Absolute Ether Element (Akash-tattva), that is, the healing at the Nirgun level. Waves of the Divine Principle are also attracted to the sound caused by wearing the bangles. These waves are spread into the body of the woman through the bangles. This enhances the sattvikta in a woman who wears the bangles. This increase in sattvikta is distressing for negative energies. Negative energies attack the bangles and create a situation where the woman is not able to wear bangles.

Spiritual experience related to strong desire of wearing bangles: During the Arati of Srikrushna in the morning, awareness about my own existence began to reduce. I had a strong desire to wear green bangles in both the hands. At that time, I felt good vibrations, from my shoulders to the fingers. I experienced the existence of Sri Durgadevi in the body and awareness about my own existence began to reduce. – Mrs. Sujata Kulkarni

Importance of wearing bangles will be clear from the spiritual experience of Mrs. Sujata. In Hindu Dharma, wearing bangles is an important Conduct (Achar). Abiding by this Conduct, a woman gets various spiritual experiences of Divine Energy (Shakti), Divine consciousness (Chaitanya), Bliss (Anand) etc.

3.9 Gold bangles

Various types of gold bangles are found. These traditional bangles also have special designs on them.

  • A flat gold bangle or patali. This bangle is thicker and broader when compared to glass bangles.
  • Gold bangle or Swarnakankan. Its breadth is similar to that of glass bangles. It is also known as ‘Bilwar’.
  • Toda is a little broader than a patali. A specific type of design is engraved on it.
  • Gotha are thick bangles without any design. They are worn at both the ends after wearing bangles.

If the design on the gold bangles is sattvik, then there are good and beneficial effects. If the design is asattvik, then there is distress too upon wearing such bangles.

Effects of wearing a gold toda:

  • Chaitanya is activated in the toda.

  • This Chaitanya is transmitted into the body of the woman who wears the toda.
  • A spiral of Divine Energy (Shakti) is activated in the toda.

Similar subtle level effects take place upon wearing other gold bangles.

1. Benefits of metal ornaments and precious stones studded in them

Metals like gold, silver, copper are used for making ornaments. By using metals for making ornaments one can derive various benefits.

Physical and psychological benefits: By adorning the ornaments made from metals one has physical and psychological benefits like reduction in the body heat, enhancement in beauty etc. For example by adorning copper ornaments the body heat reduces. By adorning gold ornaments beauty is enhanced.

Spiritual benefits: From ancient times for protection from negative energies and acquiring grace of Deities metals are used for making ornaments. For example, kids were adorned with copper anklets. Every metal used for making ornaments has is own special feature which is beneficial from the viewpoint of making ornaments.

2. Importance of gold ornaments

As per Brahman Holy text:

  • Gold destroys the harmful germs present in the body. Due to this adorning gold ornaments is considered beneficial from the perspective of health.
  • Amongst all metals, gold is the most sattvik.
  • By using gold Divine Energy is absorbed in greater extent.
  • By adorning gold ornaments the Divine Energy (Shakti) Principle present in a woman is activated and the entire family is protected. Gold is associated with the Absolute Fire Element (Tej-tattva). Due to this,

    Gold ornaments absorb the Chaitanya frequencies associated with Tej easily and in greater proportion. These Chaitanya frequencies are emitted too. Due to these frequencies, the Sun channel (Surya-nadi) of the woman gets activated. Consequently, the Divine Energy (Shakti) Principle present in the woman is activated. In this way, on adorning gold ornaments the Shakti Principle activated in her protects her and the entire family.

    With the touch of gold, the person’s Bhav towards his revered Deity is awakened because of which he gains benefit at the level of the Absolute Fire Element (Tej-tattva).

  • By adorning gold one is liberated from untimely death.

A quote in Atharvaveda delineates:

अग्‍ने: प्रजातं परि यत्‌ हिरण्‍यम्‌
अमृतं दघ्रे अधि मर्त्‍येषु ।
य एनव्‍देद स इदेनमर्हति
जरामृत्‍युर्भवति यो बिभर्ति ।। – अथर्ववेद, काण्‍ड १९, सूक्‍त २६, ऋचा १

This means that, I adorn gold created or orginated from fire which bestows eternity. One who adorns it is liberated from the fear of untimely death.

Spiritual experience: On looking at gold, spiritual healing occurring and experience of coolness on the head and pleasant sensation on the tongue: On 24th October 2006 on looking at gold, I started yawning. I felt satttvika and Chaitanya laden frequencies were emitted from gold. They touched my body and the black energy present there reduced through yawning. After sometime I experienced coolness on my head and pleasant sensation on my tongue. My breathing became rhythmic. – Ms. Ranjana Gavas, Goa

2.1 Adorning gold ornaments in the upper part of the body

In the ancient tradition of adorning ornaments, an important point is that gold ornaments are adorned above the waist. The spiritual reason for this is that gold ornaments have predominance of the Absolute Fire Principle. Through this one is protected from the negative energies active in the direction 8 to 10 feet upwards from the ground. Also, due to gold the negative energies have distress.

Example explaining this point: Before listening to music, the socerers (mantriks) from Hell manifested in seekers removing the gold ornaments: On 16th November 2006, to study the effect of Indian and Western music on the sorcerers (Mantriks) from Hell, that is, powerful negative energies, present in the seekers severely distressed by negative energies, various experiments of sound (Nada) were done. At that time, before the experiment the mantriks got the ornaments adorned by seekers removed. The reason for this is that gold ornaments associated with Tej-tatva effectively absorb and emit Chaitanya associated with the Tej-tattva. To prevent the effect of this Chaitanya, the mantriks removed the ornaments in advance. Due to the high speed Tej-tattva present in sound (Nada), the Tej-tattva inherent in the ornaments gets activated. With the disintegration of the black energy in them, there is an effect on the body too.

Hence, as far as possible the mantriks try to ensure that the gold ornaments do not touch the body. Nada functions at an expansive level because of which its effect begins at both Sagun and Nirgun level at the same time.

3. Importance of silver ornaments

It is best if the ornaments are of gold. If it is not possible to adorn gold ornaments, then silver ornaments should be adorned. Also, some ornaments are made only from silver, for example anklets. Silver ornaments primarily include anklets, chain, thick bangles, rings etc. The person adorning silver ornaments also gains Divine Chaitanya. Generally, silver ornaments are adorned below the waist.

3.1 Spiritual science underlying adorning silver ornaments below the waist

Silver has more ability to absorb the raja predominant, Chaitanya laden desire frequencies. By adorning silver ornaments below the waist, the woman is protected from the distressing Absolute Earth and Water Element frequencies emitted from Hell. In this way by adorning silver anklets, the negative energies cannot enter a woman’s body easily. Similarly she is protected by all the ornaments like griddle, toe rings etc. Being ignorant about this importance, nowadays women have thoughts like not adorning bangles, removing Mangalasutra while sleeping and actually removing the other ornaments around the neck. These thoughts are implanted by negative energies itself. By the getting the women to discard their ornaments, the negative energies can easily attack them. Hence, bearing in mind this deceit of negative energies, one should regularly adorn ornaments.

4. Precious stones studded in ornaments

Various precious stones like Ruby, Pearl, Red Coral, Emerald, Yellow Sapphire, Diamond, Blue Sapphire, Hessonite, Cat’s Eye etc. are studded in the gold and silver ornaments. This enhances their allure and they are used for specific purpose. Some precious stones, their special features and function are:

4.1 Benefits of adorning precious stones in the form of ornaments

  • Through precious stones the body acquires special Absolute Fire Element (Tej-tattva).

  • Adorning ornaments studded with precious stones helps in averting present and future suffering associated with planets (Grahapida). Planets have an impact on a man’s life. In Astrology, for averting present and future suffering due to the position of planets (Grahapida), adorning ornaments studded with various precious stones especially a ring is prescribed. As per the spiritual science, the ring is adorned by the men in the fingers of their right hand, while women adorn in their left hand.

Planet Associated

Finger to adorn
the precious stone
1. Sun Ruby Ring finger
2. Moon Pearl Little finger
3. Mars Red Coral Ring finger
4. Uranus Emerald Little finger
5. Jupiter Yellow Saphire Index finger
6. Venus Diamond Ring finger
7. Satturn Blue Saphire Middle finger
8. Rahu Hessonite Little finger
9. Ketu Cat’s eye Little finger

Nowadays as these precious stones are made artificially their actual effect is not seen. Also, even if one gets the pure precious stone, their effect is limited to some time period. By undertaking spiritual practice, the benefit of the precious stone adorned for alleviating suffering due to Grahapida is more.

4.2 Effects of adorning artificial ornaments

With changing times, due to insecurity, many women adorn artificial ornaments. Others elucidate soe distress like rashes due to ornaments. But in reality, the women are unaware that it is the act of negative energies. Due to artificial ornaments, women are not able to absorb the Deity Principle present in the environment because of which it becomes easy for the negative energies to attack them. Bearing in mind this thought, as far as possible one should adorn gold and silver ornaments itself.

4.3 Importance of spiritual emotion (Bhav) when adorning ornaments

Only the Hindu culture advocates adorning ornaments on the head, neck, ear, nose, waist, feet that is the complete body. Hindu Dharma advocates that on some occasions women should adorn special ornaments. For example, on festivals, marriage etc, women should adorn an armlet and girdle. For gaining spiritual benefit of ornaments, it is not necessary to adorn all ornaments. As per one’s financial condition some selected ornaments can suffice. Reason for this is that instead of which and how many ornaments one adorns, the underlying spiritual emotion (Bhav) is important. If a person has Bhav towards the adorned ornament only then that ornament through the associated Deity Principle can bestow maximum benefit.
