The birthday of Shri Ram, the shining light of Raghukul is celebrated by the Hindus on Ram Navami. He epitomised the virtues of truth, ethics and upholding of justice. His personal life is an account of sacrifice, something which he did with no rancour or questioning is very inspiring in troubled times.
When the yoke of life begins to feel heavy, all one has to do is look at Shri Ram and fresh infusion of patience and perseverance seems to happen.
He was the King of Ayodhya, a very sacred place for the Hindus. Very regal and dignified in appearance, Shri Ram was the ‘ideal man’. The gem that signifies royalty and has always been known as the gemstone of kings is the manik or natural ruby. In the zodiac, Surya or Sun is the king and the gemstone ruby is particularly used to harness its planetary energies.
Shri Ram is regarded as an Arkavanshi or Suryavanshi – one who has descended from the dynasty of the Sun. For viewing a fine collection of Jyotish quality natural rubies, visit Gemstone Universe.
