Benefits of Rudraksha Mala

There are various types of malas that differ in number of beads, texture, or interpretations for its use, however
only a few types can fulfill universal purposes.The rudraksha mala can be in rosary or bracelet form and
consists of dried fruit from the rudraksha tree. The health benefit of rudraksha mala beads is that it helps lower
high blood pressure. The spiritual benefit of real rudraksha beads is that it holds all the divine energy as a result
of practicing mantras on the mala.The person who wears Rudraksha always possesses good health, respected by
all and is capable of attracting everybody and will get required results. A good Rudraksha mala usually has one
hundred and eight beads or fifty four in length. To get the full results one should wear Rudraksha mala at all
times. According to various shastras Rudraksha mala can be worn around crown ear ring, chain around the ear,
armlet and specially around the stomach. One can wear one bead on the crest, three hundred around the head,
thirty six around the neck( kantamala), eighteen around each arm, nine on each wrist, 108 or 54 on the chest,
504 around stomach above waist, 162 as Yognopavit. One can also wear two, three, five, seven beads malas of
Rudraksha around the neck, in each ear lobe one, around each ear six, one on fore head.

7. PRESCRIBING THE GEMSTONES


Astrologers all over are prescribing gems for various purposes. There are basically four
methods of prescribing the gemstones. We will give the description of all the systems here.
Prescription on the basis of Janma Rashi or the Moon sign
In this system of prescription the gemstone is prescribed on the basis of the zodiacal sign in
which Moon was posited at the time of birth. This system can lead to prescription of
appropriate stone many times but wearers who have worn stones prescribed this way, have
many times received adverse results. The basic flaw in the system is that it does not take

care of the position of other planets in the zodiacal ecliptic and also loses sight of many
other astrological factors. The table below gives the results of the first method . The Indian
names for the planets and the stones have also been given for convenience of the readers.

Prescription on the basis of Lagna the Birth Ascendant


In this system, the gemstone is prescribed on the basis of the sign which is rising at the time of the birth.
The system has a flaw that it does not give credence to any other astrological factor. The stones
prescribed this way may not give any effect at times and may adversely affect the native. The chart shown
below gives a summary of this system of prescription.

Prescription on the basis of Janma Nakshatra-the Birth Constellation


In this system the prescription is based on the constellation (Nakshatra) rising at the time of birth. This
system in practice has been used for prescribing gemstones with amazing accuracy. But at times it does
not give desired results as this system also ignores other astrological factors during the process of
prescription of stones to a native. The table below shows in ready reckoner form this system of
prescription.

Prescription by a qualified Astrologer---RECOMMENDED


The most specific method is based on the prescription by a qualified Astrologer. The system
takes into account various astrological factors before prescribing the gemstone. This is
recommended system as it leaves almost nothing to chance and tries to factor in all aspects
before prescription. The steps involved in this system are discussed below, but it should be
kept in mind that a qualified Astrologer is a prerequisite to make use of this system.
Step 1.- The Lagna is looked at first and then the lord of ascendant is checked for its
auspiciousness in the Rasi and Navamsa chart.
Step 2.- Then the position of the planet ruling the Mahadasha (Major Planetary Period) is
checked. Sometimes the ruling planet of antardasha is also factored in.
Step3. - Then the Moon rasi is checked and the lord of Moon sign is checked for
auspiciousness .
Step 4. -- Then the Janma Nakshatra is checked including the lord and its dispositor for
auspiciousness.
Step5. -- Next all the nine planets are examined in rasi chart to see their strengths.
Step 6. -- Then the sign ownership of various planets is also given due consideration.
Step 7. -- The Navamsa chart has to be studied for all the factors simultaneously as it will
pinpoint many hidden facts which are overlooked by looking at the Rasi Chart.
Step 8. -- Then the chalit chart should also be made to see if a planet changes its position
housewise. If it does, then it should be invariably taken into account.

The above system when used by qualified astrologer will give clear indications about the
type of gemstone to be prescribed for a native. Normally the stones are prescribed for
strengthening the planets which results in beneficial effects. The natives who remain in
touch with their astrologers as a counselor, derive more benefits. In such cases, the
astrologer is able to prescribe gemstones for a particular period only to derive the
maximum benefits of it. Then that gemstone is not used and another gemstone is prescribed
for further period. This dynamic way of prescription is actually very beneficial and is
gaining ground in modern times.Logically,some of the gemstones interfere with the cosmic
effects of other gems also and thus are in conflict. Under such circumstances, this dynamic
prescription of gemstones is very useful as the astrologer can derive benefits for the native
from various gemstones at different points of time, without any negative effect of the
conflict of gems.
Prescription on the basis of First letter of the Name
In this system the gemstones are prescribed on the basis of the first letter of the name of the
person as per Indian sound of pronunciation of that letter. The system gives very
indifferent results and is not very popular. The reason is that, in modern times the names
are not given on the basis of the astrological consultations by people and the prescription of
a gemstone may not be in tune with the actual horoscope of the native. The table below
gives the birds eye view of details of the system.

7. CONFLICTING GEMSTONES
In modern times it is very important to look for the conflict between various
varieties of gemstones. This is more important as these days jewellery has become a
highly consumerist business and most of the times the jewelers are not aware of the
occult and cosmic power of the gems. This type of jewellery is basically sold for
cosmetic and vanity purposes without giving it a thought that they have a cosmic
role to play in the lives of humans.
Thus it is very important even for a layman to have an idea about the conflict of
various gemstones so that he himself can take precaution when it is not possible to
consult an astrologer. For those astrologers ,who are qualified and prescribe gems, it
is equally important area of knowledge. They can prescribe conflicting gemstones at
different points of time to derive maximum benefits from all the gemstones for a
single native. This dynamic prescription, though monetarily expensive for the
native, has been very accurate and effective tool in the hands of a qualified
astrologer.

The table below will give the general conflict existing between various gems and the
planetary reasons for this astrologically. The qualified astrologer, however, can take
liberty of prescribing combined gemstones also. Sometimes it has been seen that the
position of planets in the horoscope also shows that combination of certain
gemstones would conflict. Thus, a qualified astrologers opinion should always be
sought in wearing gemstones.

Zodiac Division - Sign, Star and Sub


Zodiac is an imaginary belt encircling the heavens within which are all the planets. As we know in
mathematics a circle is of 360 degree. When this circle is divided into 12 equal parts of 30
degrees, each part is called a sign. We have already talked a little bit about signs. When this
circle is divided in 27 equal parts of 13 degree 20 minutes, each part is called a Star or a
Nakshatra. If we divide a star further into nine parts, this 9th division of a star is called a 'Sub'.
This 'Sub' is the real backbone of KP System. We have already talked about the lord of a sign and
the lord of the star above. As lord (owner) of a sign is called 'Sign lord', similarly lord of a star is
called 'Star lord' and the lord of a sub is called 'Sub lord'. 'Sub lord' is calculated on the basis of
years allocated to each of the 9 planets in Vimshottari Dasa system. The years allocated to each
planet in Vimshottari Dasa System are as follows Planet
