Sri Yukteswar’s Astrological Bangle

Swami Sri Yukteswar’s creation of a unique bracelet would take root in the West for the most spiritual of reasons. The healing bracelet he recommended his disciples wear for spiritual and physical protection was an ornament forged out of three powerful and symbolic metals. The bracelet — a combination of copper, silver, and gold metals in specific weights — is said to emit an astral light that counteracts the negative pull of electrical and magnetic radiation.

Across the world, numerous stones, gems, plants, and metals have long been relied upon for their healing and transcendental properties. The problems associated with electrical and magnetic radiation, Yogananda explained, was that they:

“received attention from our rishis; they found helpful not only a combination of metals, but also of plants, and most effective of all, faultless jewels of not less than two carats. The preventive uses of astrology have seldom been seriously studied outside of India. One little-known fact is that the proper jewels, metals, or plant preparations are valueless unless the required weight is secured, and unless these remedial agents are worn next to the skin.”

At one point Yogananda questioned his guru about the value of the bracelet and was told by Sri Yukteswar, “It is only when a traveler has reached his goal that he is justified in discarding his maps. During the journey, he takes advantage of any convenient short cut.”
And so, this special article of jewelry became both the symbol of one’s quest for the Infinite as well as a source of spiritual and physical protection.

I had been wearing this bangle above for years. The copper broke on it after many years of use. Although the silver and gold were secure with no signs of breakage. I was grateful to have the bangle because it had the quality of a lightning rod deflecting difficult karma.

At the time I was spending time in Southern California and walked in a restaurant with AJ a devotee of Paramahansa Yogananda. The bangle was tight on my wrist but fell to the floor in pieces. It was unsalvageable. I miss it very much but it must have served it’s purpose and that is good. Hopefully it helped my friends karma as well as mine.

I started wearing SY's bangle in 1981. I had it repaired once. Now I'm not wearing it since it has started hurting my wrist. Maybe it's loaded with captured negative vibrations.

Lol 😂 one can’t be too sure of anything so it often seems. But I think you may be adding a little irony to my experiences. Your bangle may also be loaded with hot 🥵 air so you can float away. But fortunately something keeps you around… thanks 😊

IMO, there is a lot of things going on with how you react to wearing something like a bangle, most people understand the reasoning behind it, and just having those thoughts and utilizing some of the 5 senses (namely touch, sight), is enough to alter your thinking on associating everyday occurrences with a bangle. IMO it's how you think that metal in of itself is responsible for creating "vibrations".

To each his own if it helps then go for it. It probably helped SY only because how his own power of belief and ability to turn coincidences into association.

Science cannot yet measure everything although I understand the point of view that just because it cannot be measured why turn it into a miracle.

In my case, I had faith in the words of Sri Yukteswar, but that's just a leap of faith since there is really no way to know with our 5 senses as you underline if it has effectively worked and to what extent. The mechanism is probably not explicable by the physics of the material world, so we won't know until the Satya Yuga maybe, or until we are worthy of dwelling in the Hyranialoka planet or similar worlds.

You are right about my previously ironical comment, the real reason I'm not wearing it now is because it started to hurt my wristbone while and after exercising. I may wear it intermittently though.

May I suggest wearing it around your ankle to ward off the crows who may be looking for a place to nest. I had to use the same tactic to ward the pests from eating all my vegetables in the vegetable garden last summer. And by the way thanks for your confession about the irony sometimes it’s difficult to know with you…. At first when we talked on the phone ( a long time ago ) I wasn’t sure if I was laughing 😝 for the right reasons. Brother Turiyananda used to be like that also. He would make comments that made you laugh but on second thought there was some truth to his comments like…’ I don’t know how the young people of today will ever have spiritual progress while listening to music from bands called the Electric Prunes and the Grateful Dead’ ( with added emphasis on the words ‘Grateful Dead’ ).
