Astrological Significance of Blue Sapphire



Blue Sapphire, also known as Neelam, is a gemstone recommended for people having strong Saturn influences in their horoscopes. It is bright blue in color and has a powerful impact on its wearer, especially those undergoing Saadi-Saati or strong Saturn’s influence (negative). This gemstone is known to protect against all sorts of unforeseen accidents, dangers, and misfortunes. On the positive side, Blue Sapphire blesses the wearer with wealth, prosperity, and good luck. Astrologers often prescribe it to people involved in creative fields because it strengthens the potential of the wearer in terms of ideation, and intellect. It benefits people suffering from ailments like fits, loss of virility, fainting, mental disorders, and deafness.

Blue Sapphire must be worn only after proper astrological consultation as there are many factors to be kept in mind:

  • The quality of the stone.
  • Karatage – Low karat gemstones don’t give required impact. Some astrologers use the Ratti system to prescribe weight. You can check out Ratti-Karat conversion here.
  • The casing of the gem for ring or pendant. Gold is the preferred metal for Blue Sapphire.
  • The mantra or prayer to be recited for blessings (before first-time usage).
  • The finger on which the ring must be worn in.
  • The procedure (gemstone purification method etc.)
  • The auspicious day and time to wear it for the first time.
  • Duration of wearing the stone – Astrologers recommend a time frame as per intensity of issues and other considerations.

Temple Of Tooth

Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic or Sri Dalada Maligawa is a Buddhist temple. According to Sri Lankan legends, when the Buddha died in 543 BCE, his body was cremated in a sandalwood pyre at Kushinagar and his left canine tooth was retrieved from the funeral pyre by his disciple, Khema. A belief grew that whoever possessed the tooth relic had a divine right to rule that land. The tooth is kept in a gold casket shaped like a dagoba (stupa), which contains a series of six dagoba caskets of diminishing size. Rituals are performed thrice a day. On Wednesdays, there is a symbolic bathing of the relic with an herbal preparation made from scented water and fragrant flowers called Nanumura Mangallaya. This holy water is believed to contain healing powers and is distributed among those present. Visitors must wear clothes that cover their legs, shoulders and must remove your shoes. While there, do visit the World Buddhism Museum situated just behind the main temple.
