A Good Habit Always Pays
By Abha Bansal, Astrologer & Director, Future Point Pvt.Ltd.
There is a good saying
Sow a thought, reap an action; Sow an action, reap a habit
Sow a habit, reap a character; Sow a character, reap a destiny
There is no doubt about this saying; good thoughts are initiative for good actions. A repeated action becomes a habit in no time and that habit, reflects your character. Finally, your thoughts, actions, habit and character decides your destiny.
Your thoughts, actions and habits make you what you are. A little change in your thoughts or a small effect can create big changes in form of reformed destiny.
If you focus on one change for thirty days, it becomes a habit. A very good example is setting of Alarm. If it is fixed on a particular time for some days, one will become habitual of getting awakened at the same time. Now you get up or not that is a secondary issue because most of the time, your conscious instructs you to do something but you suppress it and do what your conveniences like.
There are many good activities or habits you must have been told by your parents and other to follow since childhood but I know virtually it is not possible to follow. Every one wants to follow activities, which is more convenient and more comfortable.
I think it is true to every one we should not pledge to follow some activity, which is difficult to follow or more time consuming because then we start finding one or the other excuse for not being able to follow the same.
Spiritually speaking if we plan to do worship God in the morning then there should not be binding for time but we should be firm / strong enough to sit for even five minutes wherever we are whether at home or in the hotel because remembering God whether in temple, home temple or somewhere else with full faith, will connect our inner self with that supreme power of almighty and will keep us vibrant for the entire day.
Same way take one mantra of your Isht Devta and recite it daily with full faith. After some time this will become Sidha Mantra for you and it will be help you miraculously at time of distress. It is only a matter of practice and good habits that will not only change your character but also your destiny.
Facts About Gems
By Arun Bansal, Astrologer & Chairman, Future Point
Q. Different types of gems are available but main gems are only 9. why so?
Ans. There are 9 planets in universe which have significant influence on the native. These gems
have powers to absorb the rays emitted by these planets. Therefore these gems only are main
gems. The power of other gems is not as good as that of main gems therefore they are known as
substitutes of main gems.
Q. What is the difference between gems, their substitutes, artificial gems and coloured glass?
Ans. The difference in these four is based on their capacity of absorbing radiations of planets.
Gems have powers of absorbing maximum rays. After Gems come substitutes and then artificial
gems. Coloured glass doesn't have power to absorb rays.
Q. Is it true that good quality gems are more effective?
Ans. The impact of good quality gems is certainly more because they absorb the rays of planets in
their original form only.
Q. If a person is incapable of wearing good quality gem in that situation would he remain deprived
of the remedy?
Ans. In case of inability of wearing gems one can try other remedial measures like donation,
fasting and recitation of mantra. A poor man can not afford the medical treatment, similarly, a
person incapable of wearing a vedic gem does remain deprived of using gem as a remedial
measure. As in medical treatment less expensive medicines are also available by using which or
by prevention or by self control health can be improved, similarly a trouble is eradicated by charity,
recitation of mantra and fasting in case of non availability of gems.
Q. Is it essential to wear specific gems in specific metals?
Ans. Metal increases or decreases the power of gems. Therefore, gems should be worn in right
metal. For example Blue Sapphire, Gomed and Cat's eye should be worn in mixed metal comprised
of 5 different metals, similarly pearl in silver, diamond in platinum and other gems should be worn
Q. What if a gem is lost or found or it gets a crack in it?
Ans. It is considered auspicious if the gem is lost. It means that malefic influence of the planet has
been eradicated. Finding a gem is not good. This way you are taking other person's negative
energies on to yourself. So it is inauspicious to get a used gem. It is considered that the person who gets the gem shall become the victim of other person's negative energies. It is considered
extremely inauspicious if a gem gets a crack in it. In this situation the ruling planet of this gem
should be propitiated properly and a gem of bigger size with better quality should be worn.
Q. What is the meaning of wearing a gem in quarter more than required weight?
Ans. It simply means that the weight of gem should be slightly more than the required weight. If a
gem of 5 ratti is recommended in that case it is definitely beneficial to wear a gem of five and half,
six or seven ratti. But, it doesn't mean at all that the weight should be exactly quarter ratti more
than 5. It can be any weight like 5.25, 5.50 or 5.75 ratti also. 5.75 ratti is almost equivalent to 5.25
carat and 5.25 ratti is equivalent to 4.75 carat. Therefore quantum of weight is dependent on
measuring unit. The idea of quarter more is that the weight of gem should be more than the
Q. A specific gem can be worn till when?
Ans. Few gems can be worn throughout life and some should be changed according to time and
some should be avoided absolutely. This can be determined after analysing the planetary position
in your horoscope. The gems of yogakaraka and auspicious planets can be worn always, but the
gems of planets occupying maraka or inauspicious houses should not be worn. The gems of
other planets should be worn according to Dasha.
Q. What is the difference between wearing a gem in a ring or in a locket?
Ans. Special energy centres of our brain are situated on our fingers therefore one gets the complete
benefit of wearing a gem in a finger. If one wishes to wear a gem in a locket, the weight of it should
be double to get the complete result.
Q. Can one wear a gem used by other person?
Ans. One should not wear the gem from other person's finger at all. If it is essential, it should only
be that of some close relative like mother, father, husband or wife. In that situation also it should be
purified properly before wearing so that the wearer of this used gem doesn't become the victim of
other person's negative energies.
Q. How much is the impact of heated stones?
Ans. Heated gems are less effective than natural gems because their quality gets affected
substantially by heating them.
Q. Is the impact of several small gems equivalent to one big gem?
Ans. The light emitted by 100 candles in a room is less than the light emitted by a big bulb in other
room, similarly, it shall be more auspicious to wear one big gem than several small gems.
Q. What is the importance of time in wearing of a gem?
Ans. A gem is an abode of a specific deity. Without that deity, it is only a piece of stone. At the time
of wearing it, we invoke the deity to come and reside in the gem and protect us from evil forces.
Each deity has its day and time to rule. It is easier for the deity to come on invocation on special
muhurta. So time is important in wearing a gem.
Q. What are the principles of removing a gem?
Ans. The way we give welcome and farewell to our guests similarly while removing a gem we
should worship the presiding deity of the gem and request him to go out of the gem to his place.
After removal it should be kept at a safe place.
