1 Mukhi Rudraksha The One mukhi Rudraksha is the symbol of Godhood, Supreme Truth and Attainment of Eternity.

The One mukhi Rudraksha is itself Lord Shankar and it is the main among all rudrakshas of all faces. It is ruled by the Sun and enlightens the Super Consciousness. It brings the power of Dharana to the wearer meaning the power to concentrate the mind on an object. The wearer of One mukhi Rudraksha gets his mental structure changed and he begins to feel renunciation from the worldly affairs and naturally inclines towards GOD. His mind begins to concentrate on the Supreme Element that is Partattva Dharana cha jayate Tatprakashnam thus the discoverers of Aatma Tattva must wear One Mukhi Rudraksha . This is the best of all Rudrakshas . Peace and pleasure abide in the house where One mukhi Rudraksha is worshipped. The person who worships it obtains not only all the worldly pleasures during his life span but also remains unaffected by them. One mukhi Rudraksha is found in two shapes round and the half moon shape. Round One mukhi Rudraksha is highly praised in our ancients texts but it is very rare and more of a myth. One mukhi Rudraksha Half moon is easily available and found in a family tree of Rudraksha from India and Srilanka. From the point of view of importance there is no difference between them. Therefore it must be real and pure in whatever shape it may be. The cost of One mukhi Round Rudraksha is more than the half moon shaped Rudraksha.

Excerpts from Puranas Srimaddevibhagavat 11th Skand Chapter V verses 25 and 26 it is stated " According to Jabala instinct for wearing Rudraksha results only after attaining the perfection of Vedas and blessings of Lord Siva during preceding births " In Chapter VII verse 23 it is stated "Rudrakshas infused with Bija mantras should be worn.

Therefore one should wear it for the destruction of all (ones) sins. He would go to Siva's heaven and rejoice with Siva. O Kartikeya a man would obtain a Rudraksha of one mouth due to great religious merit and due to Siva's favour and would also obtain Kailasa ".

Pashu means individual soul or Jeeva , Pati means Lord and God and Master and Siva all as one in the same. Pashupati is Lord of Individuals , Lord Siva Lord of animals. According to Saiva Siddhanta the individual soul that is Jeeva by nature is infinite, pervasive and omnipresent. However due to what is described as impurities individuals sometimes experience themselves as finite, limited and ignorant. These impurities that can sometimes bind an individual are called Paasha and are three in nature. They are anava and karma and maya. Literal meaning of Paasha is a rope. It is comprised of three strands that are anava the impurity of ignorance, karma the impurity of action and maya the power of obscuration .These three can tie the individual soul into bondage. Anava is ignorance. It is a beginning less positive inert energy that can causes delusion however it can be destroyed. It is said that this is possibly the original cause of an individuals bondage. Karma forges bondage of the individual resulting from actions of thought work or deed. Karma can produce merit and demerit that can tie the individual to the wheel of birth and death. Karma can also be pacified and destroyed. Maya provides the individual with its bodies instruments and objects of experience. It creates the universe for ones advancement though under the influence of ignorance it can become misused and become a fetter. Maya can be destroyed .

Rudraksha are available from 2 mukhi till 27 mukhis. The five faced Rudraksha are found easily and abundantly. One faced Rudraksha round variety has never been found till date and is thus a myth. A variety of Rudraksha called 1 mukhi half moon is thus sold in its place which is genuine and belong to a family tree of rudraksha. This bead is found easily and price is also not high. However there are suppliers who sell this half moon variety also at exorbitant prices taking advantage of the rarity of round 1 mukhi rudraksha. Round 1 mukhi rudraksha however is the most highly sold bead and is faked in many forms by unscrupulous suppliers. Many of these beads are made from berries and betel nuts and Areca nuts. Some have a stem implanted in them artificially to give a real look. Also some suppliers sell fake 1 mukhis which have Serpent, Trishul, Lingam etc carved on them. A real Rudraksha does not have these markings. Rudraksha

having 2,3,4,6 and 7 faces are found abundantly and hence their prices are not high. Fake rudraksha are made by carving extra lines in these lower mukhi beads to obtain the rare and higher priced higher mukhi beads. Also some scrupulous people fake Gauri Shankar Rudraksha by gluing together two Rudraksha beads. But these can be again detected by little experience and awareness. Please note that the idea of informing about Fake Rudraksha is not to scare away people, but to make them aware. Genuine rudraksha sold are also available in plenty naturally. But it is the greed of suppliers to make more money that forces them to deal in fake beads. Also in the case of rare Rudraksha beads of higher mukhis fakes are sold by such suppliers to satisfy the increasing demand of these beads. It is not very difficult to recognize a real Rudraksha. On account of its increasing importance and price, it is made artificially also and these artificial Rudrakshas are also being sold in market. Artificial Rudraksha used to be made long ago by using wild berry seeds or nuts or wood. But now this is an outdated technique and the Nepal suppliers of today are making these by carving out extra lines in a lower mukhi bead to get a higher mukhi bead, or hiding extra lines to obtain a rare lower mukhi bead and even by gluing together parts of rudraksha beads to obtain another rudraksha. Thus these fake rudraksha look externally like real rudraksha and thus have to be examined more carefully. But in these artificial Rudraksha, no facet can be made as real as the ones that are in the genuine ones and can easily be detected by an experienced eye .Here the facet (Mukh) means deep lining from the upper part to the lower part of Rudraksha. Looking at these deep linings-facets one can recognize real Rudraksha. One needs to use magnifying glass for this purpose and examine for artifically carved lines (which are generally very sharp) and glued surfaces on the bead. There are many other criteria written to recognize Rudraksha, such as the sinking and floating of Rudraksha in the water and revolving between two coins. But it is not a correct criterion. Even an unripe but genuine Rudraksha may float in the water, and a non genuine ones made out of wood impregnated with lead or by tampering a real rudraksha may sink. Therefore, we should not bother about these suspicions and false notions. The Rudraksha should be brought from a genuine supplier who is accountable to the people, and who would accept returns. Buying rudraksha is like buying Gems in which buyers buy from a trusted supplier only and thus buyers needs to consult other previous buyers for the genuine suppliers and their experience of dealing with them, before taking a decision to purchase these beads. Another thing to be noted is that rudraksha being a natural product, it is available in many qualities from low, medium,high to collector. A buyer should avoid low quality beads which are light weight, have broken

surfaces and are unshapely and have extremely dry surface. These beads rarely provide any effect. One should go for rudraksha which are heavy, bright, lustrous, shapely and emit a positive vibration. Fake Rudraksha Real Rudraksha

Chapter I

The power and effects of the Tears of Lord Siva have always been a solution to the pain and
suffering the Mankind and Womankind may experience during uncertain times in their life. Wearing the Sacred Rudraksha Beads brings one to a state of present moment living that most all Spiritual Teachings support. Wearing specific Mukhi Rudraksha or Rudraksa with a specific number of faces or lines as single beads or in recommended combinations create different positive changes in the wearers life. Wearing specific Rudraksha in combination also pacifies all the 9 Planets 24 hours a day as the planets continue to shift their positions in the heavens. This gives Vedic Jyotish Astrologers additional support methods for remedial and corrective measures to obstacles of pain and suffering so the wearer can experience Self Empowerment, and Fearless Life on the Path to Enlightenment. For thousands of years the merits and powers of the Holy Rudraksha Beads have been recognized by Saints and Holy Men of India, Nepal and Tibet resulting in their documentation in the Shiva Purana, Padma Purana, SriMadDeviBhagavat, RudrakshaJabaloPanishad, AngniMahaPuranam and other inspired literature. The ancient discipline of Rudraksha Therapy is as simple as it is complicated meaning it is complicated because the values and merits are listed in so many different books by different authors and simple because when a person sees the Knowledge in an organized manner in one place they pick it up immediately. Traditionally the Vedic Knowledge of recommendation and application of Rudraksha and their appropriate Mantras has been the responsibility of the many Saints and Holy Men and Priests in the Temples and Forests of India, Nepal and Tibet. Today there are many Rudraksha Therapy Facilities in India that recommend Rudraksha Beads by combining ancient Vedic Knowledge with modern scientific proof and confirmed experiences continually proving the effectiveness of wearing the Holy Rudraksha Bead.

Modern science has shown that the electromagnetic nature of Rudraksha Beads affect our Neurophysiology in a specific positive manner allowing control of heart beat, blood pressure, stress levels, hypertension and at the same time relieves anxiety, depression and neurotic conditions. Anti ageing properties have also been discovered based on the natural electromagnetism of Rudraksha Beads. The intent and purpose of teaching the principals of Rudraksha Therapy from the Shiva Purana and other Holy Books and literature is to clarify the true nature of Rudraksha and to provide an introduction to the ancient discipline of Rudraksha Recommendation and Application for the good of all concerned. Rudra Centre teaches this course with respect to the Highly Auspicious Compassionate Nature of Lord Shiva that removes pain and suffering. The Shiva Purana shows this Compassionate Nature in the origin and description of effects that the Holy Rudraksha have on the Mankind and the Womankind. We will always return to the Shiva Purana to clarify issues that are shown to be contradictory in some of the other Holy Literature that was written at different times in the history of India.

Chapter II

To know the Holy Rudraksha one must know the story of its origin and the people who wear
the Sacred Beads as a protection and aid on their heroic Spiritual Path to Self Empowerment, Fearless Life and Final Liberation. Since there are different accounts in different books of the origin of the Holy Rudraksa then one must by good reason return to the Shiva Purana for the most accurate account. In addition since there are a number of different Shaivite Paths that refer to the same Vedas, Shiva Agamas and Puranas for their Teachings, Vira Shaivism has been chosen as a living example to show how the Holy Rudraksha Beads are used as a protection or aid in one major Shaivite Path. Chapter III will explain more about Vira Shaivism and why the Vira Shaivites wear the Holy Rudraksha Beads. The origin of the Holy Rudraksa are based in the Power of Lord Shivas Pennance, Compassion and Desire to help the Mankind and Womankind destroy the pain and suffering He observed to be affecting the worlds. There are statements found in the Shiva Purana to support this: Shiva Purana Vidyesvarasamhita Chapter 25 Parts 1 to 95 Part 2 Rudraksha is favourite bead of Shiva. It is highly sanctifying. It removes all sins.....meaning suffering.......... by sight contact and Japas.

Part 3 O sage formerly the greatness of Rudraksha was declared to the Goddess by Shiva the Supreme Soul for rendering help to the worlds. Part 4 O Shivaa Maheshaani be pleased to hear the greatness of Rudraksha. I speak out of love for the benefit of the devotees of Shiva. Part 5 to 7 O Maheshaani formerly I had been performing penance for thousands of divine years. Although I had performed it rigorously, my mind was in a flutter. Out of sport I being self possessed just opened my eyes O Goddess from a desire of helping the worlds. Drops of tears fell from my beautiful half closed eyes. From those tears there cropped up the Rudraksa plants. Part 19 The wearing of the Rudraksha is recommended for the sake of destroying sins.........meaning pain and suffering. This is where we have to stop for a moment and contemplate the origin of the Holy Rudraksa. What brought them into existence ? How were they to be used? Why were they to be used ? The Compassionate Lord Shiva with eyes closed in deep Silence performing penance was interrupted by the pain and suffering of the worlds. Acknowledging the cause of his interrupted State of Consciousness His immediate Desire was to help the worlds. To accomplish this task Lord Siva used the Power of Compassion and Love from thousands of divine years of Penance. He spoke out of Love for the devotees of Shiva. He was so aware of the pain and suffering of the Mankind and Womankind that drops of tears fell from his beautiful half closed eyes. His tears produced the Rudraksha plants that create the Rudraksa Beads for the worlds to use as protective aids to destroy pain and suffering on the path to final Liberation and Salvation. The Power and psychology behind this thinking and action is perfect. If you take away a humans pain and suffering then Happiness floods the lifetime........as Happiness and Bliss work on the Jiva or human soul then the experience of Dharma Karma Artha and Moksa are brought into balance on a consistent basis. An example of what takes place due to this new found Freedom in Life is an acceleration of Spiritual Path in one lifetime that might normally take 10 lifetimes. The origin of the Holy Rudraksha Beads are based in the Power of Penance, Compassion and Desire of Lord Siva and this is how they need to be represented and used by the Mankind and Womankind in this world. The Padma Purana and SriMadDeviBhagavat were written at different times in the history of India and their interpretation of the origin of the Holy Rudraksa is incorrect and contradicting each other. A person has to be aware of this.

Lets take a look at the differences and then return to the Shiva Purana for the complete Truth: In the book by Mr Subas Rai that is Rudraksha Properties and Biomedical Implications it states that in the Padma Purana Chapter 57 Parts 23 to 25 Vyasa said: O Brahmanas formerly in the Kritayuga a demon named Tripura having killed the gods and after the destruction of all the worlds remained firm in a city in the intermediate region between the heaven and the earth due to the boon of Brahma. Lord Siva heard the terrible representation of (i.e. made by) the gods. Then he strung his bow with an arrow resembling death and holding it killed the demon who was seen ( by Him ) with ( His ) divine eye. Fallen from heaven like a giant meteor he dropped on the earth. Drops of perspiration fell down from ( the body of ) Rudra ( i. e. Shiva ) who was tired with exertion. There on the earth a great Rudraksa was produced from the drops of Sivas perspiration. The beings do not know its fruit for it is very secret. The SriMadDeviBhagavat 11th Skand Chapter IV states in parts 1 to 7 On making further query from Narayana about Rudraksha. He replied what He heard from Lord Rudra is as follows: God said O Kartikeya listen to me. In ancient time there was a daitya named Tripura who used to win others by treachery. He killed all the deities. On complaint of Brahma and Vishnu about it I thought of him. I contemplated the Aghora one of the most powerful missiles to kill Tripura and to quell all kinds of obstacles. In the process my eyes remained open for one thousand divine years and a few drops of tear fell down. From these eye drops there sprang a tree of MahaRudraksa. If you read these two accounts found in these two different books they are totally contradictory to the Shiva Purana and to themselves. These accounts of the origin of the Holy Rudraksa found in the Padma Purana and the SriMadDeviBhagavat are not based in the Compassionate Nature of Lord Shiva and don't even agree with one another. As one main example the Padma Purana states that tripura had destroyed everything and killed all the gods and was successful in all this destruction because he was protected by a boon of Lord Brahma. In SriMadDeviBhagavat it states that Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma made a complaint to Lord Siva regarding the destruction that tripura was responsible for Both accounts are based in death and destruction and contradictory to each other with one account actually maligning Lord Brahma for giving a protective boon to a destructive force.

Therefore both the accounts of the origin of the Holy Rudraksa found in the Padma Purana and the SriMadDeviBhagavat are false and diluted Knowledge. The true account of the origin of the Holy Rudraksha is found in the Shiva Purana.

Chapter III

As stated in the last chapter it would be good to take a look at people today who are a modern
example of ancient Shaivism and how the Holy Rudraksha is treated in their Spritual Teachings. Although Veera Shaivism is one of the older sects of this belief system along with Shaiva Siddhaanta, Shivaadvaita and Kashmir Shaivism it is one of the most dynamic of modern day Shaivite Schools. Religious homeland for Veera Shaivism is in Karnataka South Central India. About 40 million people live in this state and about one fourth or 10 million people are practicing this Faith there. There is hardly a village in the state without a jangama ( wandering monk ) or matha ( monastery ). The earliest reference to Veera Shaivism is found in the ShivaAgamas and the adherents of this faith trace their beginnings back to the rishis of ancient times. It was made popular by the remarkable South Indian Brahmin Srhi Basavanna ( 1105 - 1167 ). Veera "heroic" Shaivites are also known as Lingayats, "bearers of the Linga" and Sivasharanas. All members are to constantly wear a Linga encased in a pendant around the neck. Veera Shaivite belief is that wearing the linga on the body unites the soul with the Omnipresence. The Veera Shaivites goal in life is accomplished when soul and God are fused in a final state of perpetual Lord Shiva Consciousness by way of Shatsthala that is a progressive 6 stage path of devotion and surrender.

Bhakta sthala ( devotion ) Mahesha sthala ( selfless service ) Prasaadhi sthala ( earnestly seeking Sivas grace ) Praana Linga sthala ( experience all as Shiva ) Sharana sthala ( egoless refuge in Shiva ) Aikya sthala ( oneness with Shiva )

Attainment of this goal depends on the successful practices of panchachara ( five codes of conduct ) and AshtaAvarana ( eight shields or protections ) to protect the body as the abode of Shiva. Panchachara The Five Codes of Conduct

Lingachara ( daily worship of the ShivaLinga ) Sadachara ( attention to vocation and duty ) Sivachara ( acknowledging Siva as the one God and maintaining equality among all members of the community regardless of caste, education or sex ) Bhrityachara ( humility towards all creatures ) Ganachara ( defense of the community and its tenets Ashta Aavarana Ashta Aavarana The Eight Protections or aids

Guru ( obedience to a teacher ) Linga ( worship of the Divine Self ) Jangama ( reverence for a person who moves from place to place ) Paadodaka ( sipping the water in which the feet of a guru or jangama have been ceremoniously washed Prasaada ( offering food to a guru, jangama or linga and then partaking sacra mentally of what is left over ) Vibhuti or Bhasma ( smearing of the sacred ash ) Rudraksha ( wearing of the sacred rosary beads ) Mantra ( chanting the five syllable formula Namah Shivaya )

Today Veera Shaivism is a vibrant compassionate faith that has been credited with championing the cause of the down trodden and rebelling against a powerful brahminical system which promoted social inequality through a caste system that branded a whole class of people as polluted. They teach a monistic theistic doctrine named Shakti Vishishtadvaita that rejects duality of God and Soul, multiplicity of Gods, caste hierarchy, animal sacrifice and karmic bondage. One of the things I have found remarkable about Veera Shaivism is that deeply imbedded in their Eight Protections that are linked to their Five Codes of Conduct to protect the body as the abode of Lord Shiva, there is the wearing of the Holy Rudraksa.

Chapter IV

It is an easy matter to recognize authentic Rudraksha by its facets or faces or mukhis. Here the
descriptive words describing the different Mukhis seem to be interchangeable and are interpreted to mean the deep lines that are seen from the upper part to the lower part of the Rudraksha and to include the surface areas between the lines. Five Mukhi Kaalagni Rudraksha that pacifies planet Jupiter and is seen as the Guru Rudraksha Bead or 5 mukhi rudraksha has 5 lines and has total of 5 faces that are between the 5 lines. There is a seed that rests inside the face or surface area found between each of the lines. There are 5 seeds in a 5 Mukhi Rudraksha that would potentially grow 5 Rudraksha Trees.

Authentic Rudraksha can easily be recognized by looking at these deep lines or Mukhis and also by observing the exterior surface areas between the lines as the different Mukhi Beads have a distinctly different growth pattern of the thorny surface protrusions. Sometimes in the authentication process it is necessary to place the Rudraksha Beads under a microscope or look at them with a magnifying glass as there are certain artisans who make higher Mukhi Beads out of the lower Mukhi Beads meaning they will add lines to sell the Bead for higher price. Opposite to this sometimes there are artisans who will fill in the lines of a Nepal Round 3 Mukhi Bead with glue and other material to make it a rare Round One Mukhi Nepal Rudraksha. If the glue is a natural made product then placing the bead in water that has been boiled and removed from stove will melt the glue and other material out of the lines. If more modern glue is used then chemicals have to be applied to melt the glue and remove the material in the lines. Rudraksha have a number of basic shapes and sizes to include round 5 Mukhi Nepal Rudraksha and more Oblong 11 Mukhi Nepal Rudraksha. The Indian 2 Mukhi and 3 Mukhi Beads are oval shaped and a most unique Rudraksha Bead due to the excess of exterior surface area that lends itself to many different design patterns. All the exterior surface areas of the Nepal and Indian Rudraksha seem to look like the exterior surface of the human brain. The smallest and most common are usually from Indonesia strung in Japa Malas and are the size of a peppercorn or gram up to about 10mm to 12 mm. Rudraksha then range in size from the smaller 4mm Indonesian Beads to the Giant Collector Nepal Beads of 25mm to 30mm. In Shiva Purana VidyeshvaraSamhitaa Chapter 25 there is the most accurate information: Parts 9 and 10 Rudraksha grown in Gauda Land became great favourites of Shiva. They were grown in Mathuraa, Lankaa, Ayodhayaa, Malaya, Sahya mountain, Kaashi and other places. They are competent to break asunder the clustered sins unbearable to the others as the sacred texts have declared. Part 14 A Rudraksha the size of an Emblic myrobalan ( Dhaatriphala ) is mentioned as the most excellent. One of the size of the fruit of the jujube tree (Badariphala ) is spoken of as the middleing. Part 15 O Parvati lovingly listen to this from a desire for the benefit of the devotees. The meanest of Rudrakshas is of the size of a gram according to this excellent classification. Part 16

O Maheshavari even the Rudraksa which is only of the size of the fruit of the jujube accords the benefit and heightens happiness and good fortune. Part 17 That which is the size of the emblic myrobalan is conducive to the destruction of all distresses. That which is the size of the Gunjaa ( the berry ) is conducive to the achievement of the fruit of all desires. Gauda Desha or Gauda Land according to Skandapuraana was the central part of Bengal extending from Vanga ( Bangladesh ) to the borders of Orissa. Due to overpopulation in recent times and the need for agriculture and wood for fires the Rudraksha Forest seems to have receded to the areas of Nepal and perhaps Tibet as part of the Northern Arun Valley Rudraksha Forest below Mount Everest is also right on the border between Tibet and Nepal. There may be the possibility of Rudraksha Forests in Tibet also. As is noted in Part 16 even the Rudraksha the size of the fruit of a jujube accords the benefit and heightens happiness and good fortune.

Chapter V

The Holy Rudraksha Beads have been named the Tears of Lord Shiva and are the original
Vedic Beads of Power worn by the Saints and Yogis of India and the Himalayas for thousands of years enabling them to maintain health, gain self empowerment and live the fearless life on their path to enlightenment and final liberation. The Electromagnetic Properties of the Rudraksha Beads have been found to improve concentration, focus and mental stamina. Due to these same properties it was found that wearing these Beads around the heart reduced and controlled stress levels, blood pressure and hypertension resulting in the feeling of tranquility and calmness. In the Spiritual Practices the Rudaksha Beads were found to be ideal for focused Meditation and for Health and Protection on lifes journey. Historically the positive effects that have been exhibited in the wearers Neurophysiology, Mental Well Being, Personality and Physical Health has resulted in their being used widely by people of Eastern Cultures in India, Nepal, Tibet and China by Hindus and Buddhists. It is remarkable to consider that natural beads of vegetable matter from the Rudraksha Tree affect the Human Neurophysiology as described in Vedic Literature however recent scientific research has found Vedic Knowledge to be right regarding the positive effects that are produced when the Holy Rudraksha Beads are worn on the body. Though the values and merits of the Rudraksha Beads had been known as a phenomenon for generations in Vedic Knowledge it is only since the late 1980s that they have become more

prominent particularly after the research done by a group of scientists lead by Dr Subas Rai Phd of the Institute of Technology University in Banaras India. A combined study was conducted to research the Biomedical Implications of Rudraksha with the Departments of Biochemistry, Electrical Engineering, Psychiatry, General Medicine and Psychology. This study documented and proved the powers and effects of Rudraksha Beads scientifically with reproducible results. This study was printed in a Book by Dr Rai that is named Rudraksha.......Properties and Biomedical Implications. The research from the study proved that Rudraksha Beads have powerful Electromagnetic, Paramagnetic and Inductive Properties that vary from the different Mukhis or faces found on each Bead ( the different number of lines or faces found on the surface of each Bead ) . They also found that wearing or performing Japa with a particular Mukhi or set of Mukhis of the Rudraksha Beads created specific electrical impulses that are sent to the brain through the process of galvanic skin response stimulating certain brain centers that transfer information. This BioElectric stimulation affects the BioChemical System in the brain creating a positive impact on the activity of neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin levels that is evidenced by the positive transformation in the personality, mindset, outlook, charisma and the confidence of the wearer. In scientific terms the Rudraksha Beads are Dielectric as they store electrical energy and they have permanent magnetic properties that change with the different Mukhi Beads. Properties found inherent in the Rudraksha Beads include Electromagnetism, Paramagnetism, Diamagnetism and Dynamic Polarity meaning the ability to change polarity.

Chapter VI

The Chanting of Mantras are most beneficial when wearing or performing Japa with the Holy
Rudraksha. Siva Purana Vidyeshvarasamhita part 57 to 58 states: If a person is not liberated after meditation and acquisition of Knowledge he shall wear Rudraksha. He shall be freed from all sins ( meaning pain and suffering ) and attain the highest goal. A Mantra repeated with Rudraksha is a crore times more efficacious. A person wearing Rudraksha derives a hundred million times more merit. Part 60 states: He is a favourite of the 5 Deities and a favourite of all gods. O beloved, a devotee shall repeat

all mantras wearing a garland of Rudraksha ( or counting on the beads ). Mantras for the Holy Rudraksha are the five sylabled Namah Shivaya and the MahaMrityunjaya Mantra. The Aghora Mantra is also used in some instances when the Rudraksha Mala is initiated or energized. In addition to these Mantras there are Bija Mantra that have been given in the Shiva Purana for each of the Holy Rudraksha up to 14 Mukhi and they are:

One Mukhi Rudraksha........................Aum Hreem Namah Two Mukhi Rudraksha........................Aum Namah Three Mukhi Rudraksha.....................Aum Kleem Namah Four Mukhi Rudraksha.......................Aum Hreem Namah Five Mukhi Rudraksha........................Aum Hreem Namah Six Mukhi Rudraksha.........................Aum Hreem Hum Namah Seven Mukhi Rudraksha.....................Aum Hum Namah Eight Mukhi Rudraksha.......................Aum Hum Namah Nine Mukhi Rudraksha........................Aum Hreem Hum Namah Ten Mukhi Rudraksha.........................Aum Hreem Namah Eleven Mukhi Rudraksha.....................Aum Hreem Hum Namah Twelve Mukhi Rudraksha....................Aum Kraum Ksaum Raum Namah Thirteen Mukhi Rudraksha..................Aum Hreem Namah Fourteen Mukhi Rudraksha..................Aum Namah

Fourteen Bija Mantras with only 6 variations so easy to work with. From Thomas Ashley Farrands Book Healing Mantras that can be found on website www.sanskritmantra.com. Sanskrit is an energy based language where sound vibrations that make up the word or name of the object and the vibrations that form the object are identical. The specific relationship between name and form in the Sanskrit Language is extremely important. This means that form can be changed by sound with added intent and purpose and this process is reflected in the Science of Mantra. This is reflected in Maharishi Patanajalis Sutras. The sound vibrations of the Absolute Field that are the Mantras can, with added intent and purpose, change the form of the relative field we live in. This is the process of Maharishi Patanjalis Teaching on Sanyama. There is a Divine Link between the Energy vibration signature that is Lord Ganesha and his Mantras and his Eight Mukhi Rudraksha. The Light Energy that is Lord Ganesha responds to the chanting of the sound vibrations of His Mantra and the naturally produced electromagnetic vibrations His 8 Mukhi Rudraksha Bead. When practiced regularly in 40 day Disciplines this energy combination or formula of Mantra and Rudraksha move and remove all obstacles on all levels of life allowing one to move more

freely as the wearer accomplishes intent and purpose Each of the different Mukhi Rudraksha Beads have a different governing Deity or Deities and have a specific Mantra that enhances the synergistic relationship between Gods and Goddesses, their Mantras, their Rudraksha and the Mankind and Womankind.

Questions & Answers About Rudraksha


Q: What are Rudraksha beads? Where are they available? A: Rudraksha beads, botanically known as Elaeocarpus Ganitrus Roxb, are the seeds of the fruit from Rudraksha trees. Rudraksha trees are found mainly in Indonesia, Nepal, and India. Q: What is special about Rudraksha beads? A: Rudraksha beads have been traditionally worn by Asian Yogis and Monks because the beads interact with the body and mind to foster the tranquility and concentration necessary for control over mind during extended periods of meditation. Modern medical research has proven that Rudraksha beads have electro-magnetic properties that have a beneficial influence on the Cardiovascular and Central Nervous Systems. Q: What are the different types of Rudraksha beads? A: Rudraksha beads are available with 1 to 38 facets. Beads with 1 and 15 to 38 facets are rare. The 5 facet bead is commonly available and thus the most popular due to its effectiveness and economical cost. While all Rudraksha beads exhibit the same electromagnetic properties which have positive impact on overall health, ancient texts have identified additional influences of facets: One Face: Success, power, and glory. Two Face: Concentration and romantic fulfillment. Three Face: Good health and higher education. Four Face: Improved health, intellect and happiness. Five Face: Fulfillment of desires and enlightenment. Six Face: Improved physical strength and prowess. Seven Face: Increased intuitive knowledge and honor. Eight Face: Obstacles to happiness removed. Nine Face: Wealth, happiness and contentment in family. Ten Face: Protection from black magic and promotion of good health . Eleven Face: Happiness in marriage and longevity.

Twelve Face: Prosperity, bliss, and spiritual knowledge. Q: Can I wear a combination of different facet Rudraksha beads? A: You can wear any combination of beads. The individual powers of the beads can be felt simultaneously. Q: Can Rudraksha cause harm? A: Rudraksha beads do not have harmful attributes. They only have a positive influence on the body and mind. Q: Do Rudraksha beads have Anti-Aging properties? A: Yes. Aging is the process of cell decay. Free radicals are significant contributors to the decay of the body's cells. Free radicals are molecules that lack the appropriate electrons to be stable. In order to gain stability, they swipe electrons from other molecules such as DNA, protein, and fat. When these molecules lose electrons, they in turn become unstable and seek to take electrons from other molecules. This chain reaction destroys enzymes and produces toxic chemicals which cause damage to cellular functions associated with aging. The electro-magnetic properties of Rudraksha beads are especially valuable when worn over the heart. As the blood circulates through the heart, it carries free radicals through the electro-magnetic field produced by the Rudraksha mala. This field neutralizes free radicals so that they again become stable molecules. In this manner, the aging process is slowed. Finally, the "relaxation response" fostered by Rudraksha beads reduces the negative impact of stress on the body. Stress serves as a catalyst for free radicals. By helping to control stress, Rudraksha beads slow the production of free radicals. Q: Is there scientific basis behind the healing power of Rudraksha beads? A: Yes. One of the best known research papers was published by Dr. Suhas Roy of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology in Banaras, India. Please visit our References section to review an extensive listing of Rudraksha related books, articles, and research papers. Q: How long do Rudraksha beads take to heal and rejuvenate the body? A: You will normally experience positive changes within 45 days of wearing a Rudraksha mala on a daily basis. In 90 days you will feel healthier and more peaceful. From then onwards, your body will experience ongoing benefits as the Rudraksha beads maintain equilibrium and neutralize the negative effects of stress. Q: How can you test the authenticity of Rudraksha beads? A: Rudraksha beads should sink in water. However fake beads can also be designed to sink in water. The best assurance is to procure your Rudraksha from a reliable source.
