Numerology & Astro-Gemology

Scientific Research done - The Seven Rays Theory

The seven primary colours of the spectrum and the two secondary colours correspond to the nine revolving heavens.(VIBGYOR & infra- red and ultra-violet ).

The nine colours are understood to be the cosmic matrix and the very essence of the nine planets and it is through these colours that the planets radiate their energy and influence. When the visible colored lights are measured infra-red exhibits the long- est wave length and ultra-violet the shortest. The wavelength of colored light emanating from the planets are found to match those radiating from each planet's corresponding gemstone(s). Researches show that the wavelength of light emanating from the Sun is identical to the wavelength of light emanating from Ruby - Red.

Among all the elements in nature gemstones constitute the most condensed form of concentrated color. Gems therefore provide an inexhaustible source of cosmic color rays.

Here we give the Cosmic Colour and the Gem corresponding to the Nine revolving heavens.

( The term 'planet' used in Sidereal Astrology refers to cel- estial bodies or mathematical points. A star(Sun) the two ma- thematical points where orbits of the Sun (Earth-in-reflex) and the Moon intersect - viz the North and South Nodes of the Moon - ( Rahu & Ketu ) are referred as planets.)

In the Kurma Purana Chapter 43 verses 1 and 2 it is stated that omnpiresent are the rays that compose His body and illumine the illimitable worlds of this Universe. Amongst them seven are the best as they from the original cores of the seven planets. From this we can ascertain that these seven rays are supreme among all the rays which form the Universe. These rays emanating from the Supreme carry out the functions of creation maintenance and destruction in conformity with Divine Will and the movements of eternal Time. The- refore all things are composed of the seven rays and their inherent radiating energies. All sounds and forms in this material Universe can be said to originate within the seven rays.Through a clear glass equilateral prism you can view the world & you will find that every- thing is permeated by the seven rays.

The five elements of earth - water - fire -air and ether are also condensations of these same cosmic colors. Cosmic Green condensed is the Earth Principle As Ether is the densification of Cosmic Blue !

Water Element is the condensation of Cosmic Indigo Air Principle is Cosmic Violet densified Cosmic Yellow condensed is the Fire Principle !

The five subtle essences corresponding to the Five Great Elements have their individual colors as well;sight is due to the vibration of the red cosmic ray - smell is due to green -the sense of touch is within the violet colour - sound vibration is blue & taste sensation is orange. The sense organs utilized to experience the five senses are also colored by these same individual rays. If one looks through a prism the eyes will show the red color -the nose green - skin violet - tongue orange & the ear holes will exhibit blue cosmic colors when viewed in this way. The human organism is composed of cells that form groups & are the building blocks of the body. The cells themselves are composed of the seven rays and these must be in balance to maintain them in a healthy condition.

Furthur researches in Gemology has discovered that gems increase the transmission of Cosmic Colours radiated by the planets which is absorbed by our etheric or astral body thus satiating "Colour Hunger " and eliminating disease. This is the rationale of Gem Therapy.

Normally the gem correpsonding to one's Birth Number is to be worn on a Shukla Paksha Saturday in a state of physical & mental purity to enhance fortune and combat disease. But this should be confirmed by checking with a bonafide side- eral astrologer & Gemologist.
