|Comments||The second day of the Navratri is a day where the Brahmcharini form or appellation of Durga is celebrated. She is a form of Shakti whose austerities or tapa practices were unmatched. Maa Brahmcharini is the embodiment of powers of creation – paving way for creating newness. It is a given that for creation of something new, the old has to give way.And giving up old, known ways, habits is a painful process. Nevertheless, it can be done.|

The powers of Goddess Brahmcharini are all about overcoming attachments and illusory ideas to ascend to a higher level of being, of consciousness. It is about discovering ‘reality’ as well as one’s potential. It is about an individual discovering strength and equanimity, irrespective of the state of external environment and events. She is depicted as an effulgent goddess, with a rudraksha rosary in one hand and a kamandal in the other. On this day, the meditation is focussed on the Swadhisthan chakra its name literally meaning “ones own abode”, which is also the seat of creativity.
The gemstone from among the navratnas associated with Goddess Brahmcharini is the Yellow sapphire. Featured today is a fine gem – natural unheated yellow sapphire from Srilanka of 2.47 carats. The cushion cut natural Ceylon yellow sapphire has been set in 22-karat gold as a Jupiter talisman ring. The unheated yellow sapphire has a luscious butter yellow color, stupendous clarity and lustre. The talisman looks luxurious and radiates the expansive energies of Jupiter.
Natural yellow sapphire or pukhraj stone is the gem of planet Jupiter also known as Guru or Brihaspati. Individuals with dhanu lagna and meen lagna can wear a yellow sapphire for astrological or jyotish benefits. In other words, individuals with Pisces and Sagittarius ascendant can wear a yellow sapphire for planetary gem therapy. It is a jyotish ratna suited for these individuals.
The lighter colored yellow sapphire offers a better view of the clarity characteristics and one can clearly make out that it is a superlatively clean gem.
