I never prescribe gemstones but there is one tool which I wear, in fact everyone in my family wears. If my client is able to afford it, I prescribe a Kada made of copper, gold and silver. A kada is like a bangle / bracelet but it can be worn on the wrist or at the arm on either hand as per the convenience of the wearer. I wear it on my left arm, so does my dad, my husband wears it on the left wrist and my brother on his right wrist. The best part about this kada is that it can be worn by everyone, men / women irrespective of the horoscope. Children should not until they grow up (16yr or so), and its rather an expensive item too!
If you can afford it, it will cost about Rs 1.5 lakh in India at the current gold prices (Rs 4100/gram). You should ensure that the jeweller is trustworthy and is using only the purest metals and has a skilled craftsman to make it.
The exact proportions of the metals are,
- Gold – 33.33 grams
- Silver – 23.32 grams
- Copper – 12.44 grams
You can choose any design you like, eg a closed bangle or an open kada like the picture above. The important thing is that the proportions should be as above.
When you get it from the jewellers, you should do the following to cleanse and programme it.
- On a Friday, Monday or Wednesday in the bright half of the month in the morning.
- Sit in front of your puja ghar or altar and face east/north.
- Wash the kada in Ganga water or purified water.
- Then hold it in your hands and recite the Srisukta over it. This ensures basic prosperity and positivity. Intend the energy of the sukta to enter the kada.
- After that if you wish you can recite any mantra of your favourite God. It charges/energizes the kada. A mantra is always in Sanskrit. Eg If you favourite God is Gayatri, you can recite the Gayatri mantra over it 108 times.
- Then wear it.
On wearing it, if you can sense it, it will vibrate/ buzz/ get hot. The heat will spread to your entire body and your aura will change. Over the next few days you may fall mildly sick, it is the cleansing process. As your aura (astral self) gets cleaned out, the physical body will also get rid of negativity through a running nose, mild fever or upset stomach. But everything will settle down within 21 days. If you are doing spiritual practice, you will feel the difference almost immediately.
Such trimetal bangles are quite common in India. In fact here shops outside temples routinely selling kadas made of copper and silver. This one is a rather expensive thing as gold is also added. We also wear plain gold kadas. But a mix of silver, gold and copper seems to balance out everything in the horoscope.
- The gold resonates with the energy of the Sun. This helps intelligence, self-confidence, energy and enhances the vitality. (links to the Anand-mai-kosh, or karan sharir)
- The silver resonates with the energy of the Moon. It supports the Sookshma sharir, the emotions and the mind.
- The copper links to the energy of Mars, he is the one responsible for your life and living. He runs this body, the energy channels, the naadis the vital energy, praan. Mars is necessary for health. Any blockages in his naadi structure or praan movement will result in disease to the mind/ body.
This design is age old and the exact proportions have been quoted by Sri Yukteshwar Giri, a world famous astrologer. He had prescribed one for his disciple, Yogananda as mentioned in his book, “Autobiography of a Yogi”. So if you can afford it or want to wear a new piece of statement jewellery get this trimetal kada made. Wear it and feel the difference in you yourself.
