Scripture: The Bhagavad Gita 11:10-11

He appeared with an infinite number of faces, ornamented by heavenly jewels, displaying unending miracles and the countless weapons of his power.  Clothed in celestial garments and covered with garlands, sweet-smelling with heavenly fragrances, he showed himself as the infinite Lord, the source of all wonders, whose face is everywhere.

I like this short passage because it illustrates the importance of gems and fragrances in spiritual beings and, indirectly, the importance of using them to aid us in our personal spiritual growth.  With regard to the line about weapons, remember that the weapons of God and the angels are not swords, bombs and guns.
