Panchtattwa Kawach Purification Technique
The five gems of the panchtattwa kawach are set in gold, which is a highly efficient conductor of energy. To receive its full benefits, the pendant should be worn directly against the skin. Because the panchtattwa kawach resonates the energy field of the wearer, it is best if others do not handle it.
From time to time, the panchtattwa kawach should be “charged” by exposing it to the Sun for a few hours. Do not let it come into contact with salty water.
Before wearing the panchtattwa kawach, it should be purified according to the purification technique.
Mantra to Purify the Panchtattwa Kawach
AUM PANCH TATTWA DEVTABHYAM GRAHACHA NAMAHA SWAHA
Phonetic pronunciation:Om panch tatt/wa /dev/tabi/am graha/cha/namaha/swaha
Meaning:I bow to all the divine forces governing over the five elements that they be revitalized within me, building an immunity against any difficulties and strengthening my resolve to succeed in my worthy endeavours.
Ingredients for purification1. Whole milk, 16 onces (2 cups)2. 5 tsp of natural yogurt (preferably homemade)3. 5 tsp of honey4. 5 slices of banana, pureed5. 5 rose petals (preferably red or yellow)
You will also need three bowls, two one-liter (quart) bowls and a smaller 1/2 liter one.
Begin the ritual, before noon, on a Wednesday. First, in a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together until thoroughly blended. Place the mixture in front of you, slightly to your right. Next, invert the smaller bowl and place it in the remaining larger bowl in front of you just to the left of the bowl with the ingredients. Now place the pendant on the base of the upturned small bowl. Using either your fingers or a spoon, you will be taking the liquid from the large bowl on the right and pouring it over your gems. Most of the liquid should wash over the gems and down into the larger bowl.
Sit on a woolen blanket, ideally covered by silk (on the floor or in an armless chair) facing east, keeping the spine straight. Meditate with deep devotion for a few moments. Use your right hand to handle the mixture.
Then, as you begin to chant the mantra, lift some of the mixture out of the bowl and, on the word swaha, pour it over the pendant sitting on the small bowl in front of you. Repeat this procedure 27 times or a multiple of nine — for example, 18, 36, etc., up to a maximum of 108.
After the desired number of chants, remove the pendant from the bowl, wash it thoroughly over running water, and hold it in your right hand. Meditate again for a minimum of 10 minutes and then wear the pendant.
According to ancient tradition, this purification ritual is suggested before wearing a new gem in order to bring its vibrations into harmony with your own. Chanting the mantra increases the beneficial effect of the gems.
