Gomed/Hessonite Garnet Ring
Gomed or Gomedh or Gomed Stone or Gomed Gemstone or Gomed Gem is the Hindi name of Hessonite Garnet. This Gemstone is very popular Gem in India.
Being a very economical Gemstone, Gaya Gomed is available and worn in rings or Pendents by people to ward off the evil effects of Rahu – the planet that is dreaded for its ability to bring troubles in lives of people. This quality of Gomed is used in making “Rahu Dan Yantra” the donation of which is recommended by Agni Puran to reduce the malefic effects of Rahu in a natal chart.
Astrologically Gomed is strongly recommended for those people who have Rahu placed in a strong position in their natal chart. If Rahu is placed in a positive position in a natal chart then it gives a person a very strong BHAGYA he or she is able to cut through the competition and reach a very high level on professional ladder. Some of the most influential people in the history had Rahu in a very prominent benefic position. This gave them an edge in life and they were able to rise to a very high position in life. These include the ex Prime Minister of India Mrs. Indira Gandhi, ex Home Minister Sardar Vallab bhai Patel etc
Where Rahu is malefic its donation in the form of “Rahu Dan Yantra” is recommended so that its malefic effects are minimized. I have observed in my long professional life that this has a strong impact in reducing the malefic effects of Rahu but its effects are not permanent and this Dan need to be repeated after every birthday.
