One little-known fact is that the proper jewels, metals, or plant preparations are valueless unless the required weight is secured, and unless these remedial agents are worn next to the skin." Three Metal Bangle was made popular in the west by Paramahansa Yogananda, the great yogi avatar and founder of Self- Realization Fellowship who authored many spiritual classics, including the well-known Autobiography which was written in Encinitas, CA, also home to Astrogems. On the right arm he wore a nine-gem astrological bangle very similar in design to the thousands that Astrogems has made over the last 25 years.
On his left arm was the three-metal pure wire bangle and a thick lead and silver alloy bangle that is also mentioned in the 'Autobiography of a Yogi'.
Our body can carry an excess of static electricity and the bangle also acts as a great conductor to help bring it into balance.
According to astrological laws, to do away with bad influences of planets there is nothing better than a bangle. When this adhesive power of the body cells becomes lax with the advance of old age, the planetary pull becomes stronger, causing more laxity of the cells, inviting disease and mental disturbance.
Sometimes, to take the bangle off when one needs to - even in that moment, is dangerous.
The bangle and its combinations of metals as fixed by the Rishis, emanate electrical rays unseen by human eyes which counteract all planetary vibrations.
Just as a lightning rod is affixed to a house to absorb the falling thunder and lightning, so the bangle is a lightning rod to absorb the ferocity of bad planetary rays falling on the body.
I remember definitely instances of cases where a person could not wear the bangle as the arm rotted under it.
One person had to change position of the bangle three or four times.
For many years Astrogems has repaired and made three-metal Astrological Bangles for close friends, previously not offering this service worldwide, focusing instead on what we consider to be a much more powerful bangle, the nine-gem bangle or “navaratna.” We adopted this priority because of a quote by Paramahansa Yogananda in the classic problem received attention from our rishis; they found helpful not only a combination of metals, but also of plants and, most effective of all, faultless jewels of not less than two carats.
