Kaustuba is a divine jewel which is worn by Lord Vishnu who lives in Vaikunta. It is considered as the most precious jewellery in the entire universe according to the Hindu divine texts.
When Devas and Demons were churning the Ocean of Milk in order to get the divine nectar, the most precious jewel Kaustuba was arisen from the milk ocean. It glitters like a sun, and contains more attractive features. Several songs in praise of Lord Vishnu include the importance of Kaustuba Jewellery, since he is permanently wearing the precious jewel. It is the most favourite thing for Lord Vishnu, and he looks more attractive, due to the divine ornament.
It is believed that those who wear the jewel, would never attain death, and would be considered as an immortal. Since Lord Vishnu is a divine god, and there is no end for him, the jewel is decorating his neck. It is considered as more precious than that of Syamantaka jewel, which is worn by the Sun God, Lord Surya Bhagavan.
Let us worship the great jewellery which forms part and parcel of the body of Lord Vishnu and be blessed.
