In the Shrī Tripursundari stotra composed by Shri Ādi Shankarāchārya, a prayer has been offered to the Dēvī , ‘O Girija, please accept this nose ornament offered by me.’ Even today, the nose ring worn by women is studded with pearls.

Subtle effects of wearing a natha


Through pearls, the waves in the form of the Absolute water Element (Āpatattva) are activated and emitted. Due to the pearls in the natha, cool waves in the form of the Absolute Water element  are emitted from the natha.
