Rudraksha Guide: Know Everything About Rudraksha
Rudraksha is among one of the most preferred and worn astrological elements. It is considered extremely pious and holds strong significance in Hindu mythology.
It is believed that lord Shiva was in deep pain due to the human’s life cycle which isn’t letting people attain Moksha. Out of this sheer pain, tears dropped off Shivji’s eyes and the spots where these tears fell are believed to be the incarnator of Rudraksha trees. Rudraksha occurs in the form of a seed of the Rudraksha fruit and goes through a number of processes before reaching the end user.
Rudraksha can be had in various types ranging from 1 faced unit to 13 faced unit. Along with these, Gauri Shankar Rudraksha and Ganesh Mukhi Rudraksha hold special significance in Hinduism. These are considered one of the most ancient beads as well and are found in the North East Himalayan region of India and Nepal, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, China and Korea.
Out of all the available Rudraksha beads, 1 faced and 5 faced Rudraksha hold special significance in Astrology. 1 Mukhi Rudraksha is one of the rarest beads. It is the significator of planet Sun and has lord Shiva as its governing deity. It helps the wearer with confidence, self control, manage energy levels and have an authoritative mindset.
The 5 faced Rudraksha is the significator of planet Jupiter and lord Kaalagni. Wearer of this Rudraksha receives blessings from lord Kaalagni and all sins that he/she accumulated in current life get cancelled. The wearer also develops a stable mindset, fame and remains safe from accidents and other similar circumstances.
Scientific Properties of Rudraksha
As Rudraksha is available in multiple types in terms of faces, these faces signify different properties and vibrations. Rudraksha beads are composed of multiple metals and chemicals which give them different composition and set of vibrations. These vibrations create astrological effects on the wearer and are considered as effective as the respective gemstones of each planet.
The human body has a number of bio-electric circuits which get disturbed due to stress and excessive activities. It happens due to the malefic effects of astrological planets as well. A Rudraksha holds the power to normalise the disturbed bio-electric circuits with its own energy and vibrations. Hence one should wear a Rudraksha strictly as per their birth chart and after consulting an expert astrologer.
How to wear a Rudraksha?
While wearing Rudraksha for the very first time, it should be worn with complete purity. Rudraksha beads or mala must be placed on a clean surface. It should be sprinkled with Gangajal or holy water. Thereafter, the wearer must chant “Om Namah Shivay” for a minimum of 108 times. After this, the Rudraksha can be worn. As it’s a pious bead, one must keep it aside while defecating, visiting someone’s funeral, etc.
Different Purposes of Rudraksha
Rudraksha can be used for various holy purposes. It is differentiated on the basis of the number of faces it gets. A Rudraksha may have multiple faces ranging from 1 to 13 along with Gauri Shankar and Ganesh Mukhi Rudraksha. Every single Rudraksha type is responsible for a certain astrological effect on the wearer’s life and one should act accordingly. Below are the different ways of keeping Rudraksha:
- Wear as a garland
Rudraksha mala or garland can be worn to avoid malefic effects of planets. It is proven to be very beneficial but one must consult an astrologer for the correct faced beads before wearing it.
- Use for chanting
A Rudraksha Mala can be used for chanting and wearing, however using the same garland for both the purposes isn’t the correct practice. Rudraksha is very dear to lord Shiva and one should use it for Shivji’s jaap. One must keep dedicated garlands for specific purposes. It is very important to use a sacred and unworn garland for chanting.
- Wear single unit of Rudraksha
This is the most obvious way of wearing a Rudraksha. A Rudraksha is equally beneficial and costs less when compared with gemstones. They contain a lot of energy and can help native in tackling various life related issues. Hence, one should wear a Rudraksha only after a detailed discussion with an expert astrologer.
- Wear in combination
A particular Rudraksha can be worn in combination with other types of Rudraksha. For example, wearing 3 faced, 4 faced and 5 faced Rudraksha is beneficial in keeping the wearer fit and healthy. Similarly, the native wearing one unit of 2 faced Rudraksha and two units of 6 faced Rudraksha may bring positive results in terms of progeny.
