Consecration of your talisman – Encrypting your spiritual DNA
Vedic Puja of Gemstones-The vital purity portion of consecration to get the most powerful results!
The Gemstoneuniverse Difference!
Consecration, by dictionary definition refers to setting apart for sacred use. When we say that your talisman viz. a ring, a pendant or any other talisman is consecrated and energized in your name, it refers to a process where by the talisman is set apart in the scheme of universe to be of singular use to you and only you. The talisman’s vital energy is boosted over several times by Vedic mantras and it’s intrinsic energies are synced with YOUR person, specifically.
Just like fingerprints are unique and your DNA is unique, the combination of your name, nakshatra (constellation) and rashi/ rasi (moon sign) collectively carry the coding of your spiritual identity, your real DNA! When a talisman is made, the process itself is started at an auspicious time that would be conducive to realization of your objectives, using electional astrology. Once the talisman is ready, it is then ‘ consecrated and energized ’!
By consecration is meant the essential process of the shodashopchar puja . According to the Hindu sacred texts only the shodashopchar puja/ consecration of 16 sacred steps is regarded as the complete prayer ritual. Before beginning of the puja, a sankalpa (stricture akin to a sacred oath) is taken chanting the name, nakshtra and rasi of the individual for whom the talisman has been made and objectives are spelled clearly for attaining which, the individual desires to wear the talisman of establish it in a sacred space.
A symbolic representation of the presiding deity of the gemstone talisman is also established and offered pujas.
View the video below that has short clippings of the whole Vedic Pooja of a Planetary Gemstone! In this case a Blue Sapphire was being consecrated for a patron. Note the placement of The Blue Sapphire on the Hand of Lord Ganapathi-The Ultimate Blessing!
The shodashopchar puja essentially means the prayer ceremony of 16 rituals, namely:
- Aavahan or invocation of the deity
- Aasan or giving a worthy aasan or seat
- Paadyam or washing the feet, as has been done traditionally for ages, to welcome a guest.
- Arghyam or offering of holy water sprinkled on the head or given for washing the hands of
- the guest – in this case, the deity ruling the Gem
- Aachaman or purifying of self so as to be worthy of conducting the puja
- Snanam or bathing the deity with water, milk, curds, ghee (clarified butter), honey and sugar (these are then collected as panchamrata/ panchamrita (five nectars) and distributed as prasadam ). The deity is again given a cleansing bath with Vermillion, tumeric and flowers mixed in water one by one.
- Vastra or adorning the deity in suitable clothing
- Yagnopaveeta or donning the sacred thread for the deity
- Gandham or applying sandalwood paste

- Pushpa or offering of flowers to the deity
- Dhoop or offering incense sticks
- Deepam or offering a lit ghee lamp to the deity
- Naivedyam or offering food to the deity (Please note that the priests prepare/cook this prasadam strictly on their own observing all. It is not got / bought from anywhere or anyone. Only the fruits may be bought.)
