How to do Prana Pratishtha of Gemstones?

The original gemstones have the power to transform your life. But even if you are wearing it in the right finger as suggested by your astrologer, you might be missing something important. Gemstones have energies that radiate around the wearer. They absorb positive energy from the surroundings and transmit them to the individual. Thus, it is important to evoke their energy making them transmit the benefits for which they are known. In Vedic astrology, this process is known as Prana Pratishtha, or energizing of gemstones.

What is Prana Pratishtha of gemstones and why should we do it?

"Prana" means "life, force, spirit and breath" and "pratishtha" refers to “placement”. It means to put life in sacred objects like the yantra, idol, rudraksh, or gemstone. Prana pratishtha is the science of consecration according to which even a stone can possess divine powers. It is done by qualified priests and is a stronger form of Vedic Pooja. These expert priests chant well versed mantras to purify the objects and remove negative energy. The significance behind the Prana Pratishta procedure is to invite the deity and its power to reside inside the gem. Thus, if done properly, it induces powerful energy into an inanimate object.

Where is the best place to wear gemstones?

All the navratnas are believed to possess powerful energy and they affect individuals instantly. Blue sapphire for instance is known for giving instant results. But this is only possible if its powers are evoked. Each gemstone is associated with a planet and harnesses the energy from the same. When energized, the negative energy is expelled and the cosmic energy of the connected planet is transformed into the individual. 

Hence, energization is important and should be done under proper guidance. A priest can help you pick out the date and the ingredients the pran pratishtha puja will require. Ideally, it should be done in a temple or a sacred place where the energy in itself is strong. 

But if going to the place is a problem, you can even carry it out at your home. Either ask the priest to visit you, or you can also do it by yourself.
