Namaste. This is Ajay Jadhav. I welcome you in my YouTube channel- Ancient Knowledge by Mr. Ajay Jadhav. Today we are continuing our series on Hindu gods and personalities. And we are going to find out which is the most precious jewel in the universe. As stated in Garuda Purana, Lord Vishnu possesses the most precious jewel in the universe. And name of this jewel is Kaustubha. Yes. This Kaustubha jewel is the most precious and spiritual jewel- ornament as stated in Garuda Purana. Lord Vishnu has many divine pastimes. He has so many spiritual transcendental expansions called incarnations of Lord Vishnu. And one of these pastimes- Lord Vishnu is called Lord Vitthala and the temple of Lord Vitthala is located in state of Maharashtra in present India. There, the devotees and great sages have glorified Lord Vitthala. One of those great stages is Saint Tukaram. When Saint Tukaram glorifies Lord Vitthala, which is of course Lord Vishnu. Saint Tukaram says " our dear Lord Vitthala looks so beautiful being decorated with Kaustubha jewel". So now we know the most precious jewel is a Kaustubha jewel. And it looks red in color. According to garuda purana the color of kaustubha jewel is red like rising sun. How rising sun looks red like that kaustubha jewel looks red in color. And wherever you find the transcendental description of divine appearance of lord vishnu in hindu scriptures you will definitely find that Lord Vishnu is decorated with this kaustubha jewel. So now we know the most precious jewel in the universe. And to see this jewel, we have to go and be fortunate to see Lord Vishnu, who is possessing this most precious jewel in the universe. So to find Lord Vishnu, we should be fortunate enough to enter into spiritual world called Vaikuntha planets (which is the spiritual home- the eternal abode of Lord Vishnu).

In Hindu Mythology, the Devas and Asuras performed the "Churning of the Ocean of Milk" (Samudra manthan), in order to get Amrita (Devanagari - अमृत). In this process, the fourteen treasure jewels (Ratnas) emerged from the ocean. The fourth Ratna that emerged is known as Kaustubha. It represents pure consciousness shining in all its luminous manifestations. It was said by Lord Shiva that nobody in the universe except Lord Vishnu could handle the brilliance and magnificence of this "Mani", since it could corrupt the bearer by infusing in them a greed to carry it forever.


  • Kaustubham is the jewel.
  • Kaustubhdhari is the person who is wearing that Mani i.e. Lord Vishnu.
