#. Rudraksha Physical Properties?
Specific gravity for Rudraksha is above 1.05. This rises up to 1.70 depending upon the dryness of Rudraksha and also type of Rudraksha bead. If the moisture content is more, the Rudraksha may also float on water. But it may not float also. So this clarifies the myth behind this rule. Remember that – it may or may not float.
PH value for Rudraksha is above 4.82. But, the acidity is also dependent on many factors. Nuts from Unripe fruits are more acidic.

Scientifically, we believe that this may not be possible. Science has not yet reached God! But, sacred books clearly described the effects of various Rudraksha beads. Sayings of Vedas and Upanishads are never false.
#. Origin of Rudraksha?
Origin of Rudraksha is linked with the Story of Tripurasura Samhara. It has many Secrets which tell us about the Meaning and Benefits of Rudraksha.
Tripurasuras are three Demons who have Innumerable Powers. They live in three Purams which are built in the sky and revolve in space (Can be compared to very big Flying saucers). The Purams are protected by a boon from Lord Ganesh and nobody can harm them, unless they come into a single axis. The moment comes only once in thousands of years.
Prayed by all gods Lord Shiva decided to kill those Demons. He did a big Tapasya with half-closed eyes. (Ardha Nimeelita Neetra). He opened his eyes, concentrated on the axis and burnt Tripurams. Due to the stress caused by Tapasya, tears came out his eyes while opening them. They turned into Rudrakshas.
#. Meaning of Rudraksha?
Rudra + Aksha = Rudraksha. It is well known. What does “Rudra” mean? Rudra is Lord Shiva in his most fierce form.
The most important word is “Aksha”, which tells us many details about Rudraksha. Aksha means “Eye”. It resembles the Third eye of Lord Shiva, Fire, which protects us from Passion and Death. Aksha means “Borne out of eye”. The tears which came after 1000 years and Tapasya done by Lord Shiva, Rudraksha relieves stress and greatly helps in reaching desired goal. Aksha means “Axis” The concentration of Shiva in the war. Everybody needs concentration. Aksha means “View to chase the target”: A Clear Vision to reach goal.
Another important meaning of Aksha is “Joining axis of Tripurams”. This gives a purely philosophical meaning. Tripurasuras resemble Trigunas (Tamas, Rajas and Satwa). They live in Tripurams (Sthula, Sukshma and Karana Sareerams) One can attain Salvation only after winning these three. We can’t win them one by one. They merge at a single point called “Deha bhranti” (Feeling of one-self as a separate identity) . We have to target it and win them at once.
From the depth of Philosophy, we consider Rudraksha not just a Nut. It is a resemblance of Lord Shiva. Wearing Rudraksha is attaining Shivatwa. Benefits will automatically follow.
Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is the resemblance of Lord Shiva. It is Diamond in Rudrakshas. It makes us Kings. But, What makes it so Powerful? Is it allowed to wear on body? How to get benefits from Ek mukhi Rudraksha?
What is Ek Mukhi Rudraksha?
Ek mukhi (Eka mukhi / One Mukhi Rudraksha) is a Wonder of Nature. Normally Rudraksha beads will have 5 lines (Mukhi) on them. They resemble 5 compartments of Rudraksha nut. Each compartment contains a seed in it. But, Ek mukhi will have only one seed! But it has been recently noticed that 2 mukhi rudraksha also contains a single seed. And sometimes 3 mukhi rudraksha also contains one single seed and a single compartment. This is a very genuine situation, for which I will be publishing its photograph as a Testimonial and proof to this statement. Even an 11 Mukhi rudraksha has been found once with 12 seeds. Try and understand that nature doesn’t have a specific rule. These are natural beads which can grow haywire sometimes. Nobody has a control over it. So its not necessary that ek mukhi gol dana / rounds shape 1 mukhi contains one seed and compartment only. It may contain more than 1 seed sometimes and may have more than 1 compartment also. Nature has no control on its natural growth and has no rules.
What is the shape of Ek Mukhi?
Generally what we all know that Ek mukhi is Half-moon shaped or Cashew-nut (Kaju dana) shaped. But this is not true. Round Ek Mukhi and Siddha Dana rudrakshas are also present. But, they are very rare. The reason is Rudraksha nut can’t retain it’s roundness with one compartment. Not only Ek Mukhi, but many Two mukhi and Three mukhi Rudrakshas are not completely Round. They will turn some what oval vertically. But Round Ek Mukhi’s rarity makes it expensive and a costly affair. A must have have for anybody who needs a spiritual and astrological push for overall growth in life.
