Gems as medicine

[Gems as a remedy.

Astrology or Jyotish advocates use of gems for curing a disease.

There are many color gems available in the nature. These have properties that effect the body and mind. It is a scientifically proven fact that each color has its own meaning and significance and that it effects human mind.

Advertising specialists and ad designers choose the colors wisely so that they can streamline their product's message to the masses.

Blue color defines professionalism and balance while red means fun excitement and compassion.

Colors have proeprties that are warm and cold. They can be soothing serious or exciting. ]

[Mantra or chanting

Mantra are vedic verses that are chanted for benefit of body and mind.

Repeating the mantra instigates positive energies in our mind. Astrology science tells us that each sound has its own meaning and relation with planets.

When we chant mantras we benefit from the vibrations that come from the sounds. The aura or the atmosphere around us improves and we gain benefit from it.

One must chant vedic hymn after consultation from a pandit or Jyotish expert. Japa (repetition) of a mantra is also good for cleansing of mind and attaining Moksha.]
