As far as gajmani and gajmukta is concerned there are many opinions, which i have come across.  First of all gajmukta and gajmani are two different things. Gajmukta has been given a name to a brain tumour which when occurs in the elephant it dies. And immediately if detected it is taken out once the elephant dies. It is soft and fleshy and has to be well protected since it is a living flesh. It has got a very bad smell and on touching, it has vibrations and if one raps a leaf around it the chlorophyll disappears as if it has eaten it in the form of food. If one puts it in a glass of milk it will turn into curd and the one who drinks it, his urge for sex will increase. This has been in demand more in Arab countries.

On the other hand gajmani is hard and is supposed to be the head of the tusk. It has no vibrations and does not eat anything. Is is a total non – living thing as if petrified. There is another thing that if one has 108 Gajmuktas then it is termed as gajmani. And if one wears gajmani in darkroom the room become so much illuminated that there is no need for light in that room. This is what is believed.

Though at the end, I came to know that gajmani and gajmukta are the same thing and 2 different names for one thing only. Finally we came to a conclusion that all this is a myth and rumours. It is a non living thing. Actually it is a white to pale white and sometimes light yellow colored material in the brain or front side of the elephant, which has very strong healing powers, very expensive to buy and rare to get. Its sheen and texture shows its genuineness. It has light vibrations if taken in left hand in a yog and right aasana. This is how we can test it. Available in cut stone shapes like oval, round and drop shape for male gaja mani and female gajamani.
