Beneficial Radiations

“All things are made of vibrations, and have their own magnetic properties. Certain pure gems and minerals emit radiations that are beneficial to the body of man. One such “bangle” made of gold,silver, and copper was recommended by Sri Yoganandaji for general use. He said that this bangle had more than physical value. (I remember his advising a disciple, who was prone to having accidents, to obtain and wear one of these bangles.)”

“A number of people who own these bangles have told me that, during times of physical illness (and, perhaps, of mental depression), their bangles have become so hot on one arm that they had to move them onto the other. I myself have felt a person’s bangle when he said that it felt hot. It was, in fact, much hotter than the arm itself–so hot that it almost hurt my fingers to hold it.”

Adverse Effects of Past Wrongs Minimized

“All human ills arise from some transgression of universal law. The scriptures point out that man must satisfy the laws of nature, while not discrediting the divine omnipotence. He should say: ‘Lord, I trust in Thee, and know Thou canst help me, but I too will do my best to undo any wrong I have done.’ By a number of means–by prayer, by will power, by yoga meditation, by consultation with saints, by use of astrological bangles–the adverse effects of past wrongs can be minimized or nullified.”

—Sri Yukteswar, from Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramhansa Yogananda
