जय त्वं देवि चामुंडे जय भूतार्तिहारिणी !
जय सर्वगते देवि कालरात्रि नामोSस्तु ते !!
Jaya-Twam Devi Chamunde Jaya Bhootartihaarini !
Jaya Sarwagate-Devi KaalRaatri Namostute !!
Maa Kaalratri is the one who annihilated the demon Raktbija, who could not be killed, as he had the boon of coming to new life with each drop of blood that fell to the ground. It only meant that more number of demons would be created. Kaalratri lapped up each drop of his blood before it reached the ground, after severing his head off.
The worship of Mother Kaalratri is of great significance in the vaam marga or the tantrik tradition. This is a day when the energies are focussed on the sahasrara chakra or the crown chakra, represented by the thousand petalled lotus. This is the realm of pure consciousness, where there is nothing but sat – chitta – ananda! Supreme bliss and absolute truth!
From among the navratnas, the gem that is similar in energies to Kaalratri is the blue sapphire. Featured today is a splendid gemstone – a fine natural unheated and treatment free Ceylon blue sapphire of 3.03 carats set in 22 karat gold as a Saturn talisman ring. The oval cut blue sapphire gem is an appealing cornflower blue in color and possesses superb clarity and electric lustre.
In Vedic astrology, natural blue sapphire or neelam gemstone is the gemstone of planet Saturn. Who should wear Blue sapphire – Individuals with makar lagna and individuals with Kumbha lagna can wear the blue sapphire. However, since blue sapphire is an intense gem that can display results very fast, this gem should be worn only after getting a proper gemstone recommendation.
