#. Round Ek mukhi Rudraksha is the Most debated topic in the field of Rudrakshas. Is it a Fact or Myth? If it is a Fact, what about the Super-natural Powers?
Round Ek mukhi is present!
Ek mukhi Rudraksh are generally available in Cashew-nut (Khaju dana) shape. They will have only one line on them. They contain single compartment and single seed. Because of this single compartment the nut collapses and turns in to Cashew-nut shape. But, in some very rare occasions Rudraksha bead retains it's Roundness. Remember, VERY RARE, but available with certain sellers who specialize in that. It is available in 4 types. Kaju Dana(very cheap and very easily available), Siddha Dana(rare, but available), Round Nepali(rarest among all), Round Indonesian(rare).
#. Specialities of Siddha / Round Ek Mukhi:
Always Round Rudraksha or Siddha is Powerful than Oval or Flattened Rudraksha. It is clearly told by Puranas and Tantras. But, the Majestic thing in Round Ek mukhi is overcoming natural powers. Round Ek Mukhi Rudraksha makes the person equal to Lord Shiva. It transmits Abundant Power. Salvation (Mukti) is in his hands!
#. Signs on Siddha / Gol Ek Mukhi Rudraksha:
Some people tell that Gol Ek mukhi will have signs of Shivling, Serpent, Trishul and holy Aum formed by it's groves. But, it is not true. These symbols are totally man made and people create them on cheap rudraksha, carved them and sell them expensively. One or all the symbols present on any rudraksha certifies it as FAKE. A common man has not seen many Round Ek mukhi in his life-span. So its easy to dupe innocent people showing these fake symbols carved on it. Tantras are also very specific on this topic!
#. Super-Natural Powers of Siddha / Round Ek Mukhi Rudraksha:
This is also a question of debate. But, One thing we must remember. Only Great Sadhus and Tantrics can bear it. Only they know how to utilize it. The Super-natural Powers require Sacredness. Otherwise they will lead to the down-fall of the person.
#. What to do if Siddha / Round Ek mukhi is available?
You are the Luckiest person in the world. Capture it any how. Worship it as Lord Shiva. Don't use it for the worldly things. Be cautious. Of course! you can pray it for your healthy desires. But, that is not at all required. It fulfills all of them without asking. It keeps you high in the life. Gives success everywhere.
#. Physical and Chemical Properties of Rudraksha are a topic of interest for many people. What do they tell us? Can we prove Rudraksha Power with these properties? Do they have any importance in Rudraksha therapy? Let us first concentrate on the Benefits.
Uses of Analyzing Rudraksha:
1. If we know the Properties of a Real Rudraksh, we can easily eliminate Fake ones. This is the first use.
2. Chemical and Biological properties of Rudraksha are very much useful in Rudraksha therapy. We may not prove the Spiritual effects of Rudraksha with them. But, they tell us the logic behind Therapeutic effects of Rudraksha.
3. Ayurveda, Siddha vaidya and some Local remedy systems of India have described the usage of Rudraksha in many diseases. But, they require substantial scientific proof. That can be obtained by these properties.
4. Rudraksha are very much useful in controlling Mental illnesses. Some studies are suggesting the Magnetic effects of Rudraksha is a reason for this.
#. 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.
Rudrakshas have Powerful Electro-magnetic and Para-magnetic inductive properties. Each variety of Rudraksha beads show different effects. These effects are used for positive results in Neurophysiology and Psychiatry.
#. Rudraksha Bio-Chemical Properties:
Chemical analysis reports suggest the presence of Citric acid, Vitamin C and Rudraksha oil with Multiple alkaloids. Pharmacological effects of Rudraksha indicate more than one active Principle element in it. Rudraksha extract has Anti Viral, Anti Bacterial, Anti Protozoal, Anti Fungal, Anti Helminthic properties.
It is a Pale yellow colored liquid with a Refractive index of 1.46. Specific gravity of Rudraksha oil is around 0.93. Fatty acid analysis tells presence of Iso palmitic oil, Iso stearic oil and traces of many other oils.
If Rudraksha is placed in water for some time, it's temperature will rise slightly. Water becomes acidic and it's Electrical conductivity increases up to 24 Hrs. Rudraksha water improves health.
#. Can we prove the Spiritual effects of Rudraksha with these tests?
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. That moment comes only once in every Thousand 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 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 sometimes. 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.
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.
Is Eka mukhi allowed to wear on body?
Yes, it is allowed, but remember that Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is directly Lord Shiva himself (Sakshat Shiva swarupa). So you have to be carefull and sometimes alert to handle this much power.
Myths about wearing Rudrakshas!
All Rudraksha and Ek Mukhi as well is allowed to wear while taking alcohol, while participating in sex, and in menstrual period or while taking bath. Children under 4 years should not wear Ek Mukhi until and unless it is prescribed, activated and energised properly by a professional astrologer or rudraksha therapist for specific purposes only. The crux is that anybody can wear rudrakshas including ek mukhi gole dana as it has some powerful aura and magnetism of its own which cannot be neutralised with any of the human deeds or daily chores of life.
How to get benefits from Eka Mukhi Rudraksha?
Ek Mukhi Rudraksha passes the Power of Lord Shiva to the person wearing it. It burns all the Sins made by the person (brahma hatya dosha haram). It protects him from accidents (Akala Mrityu Haram). It gives a sudden rise in the career (Akasmat Dhana Prapti Dayakam). The person rules the world (Shiva Shakti Pradayakam). If he wishes he will attain Mukti (Shiva Sayujya Pradayakam).
Guidelines to find out Best Rudraksha:
The Best Rudraksha is always Ek mukhi. What about the quality differences? How to choose a Best Rudraksha from the same category? It is a must know info before purchasing a Rudraksha. Luckily, Puranas clearly told the characters of Best Rudraksha.
Its not at all true that big rudraksha are superior to small Rudraksha. Every Rudra has its own magnetism and taaseer, which cannot be defined by its size. Yes there is a small difference due to size but practically it is considered negligible.
Sizes of Rudraksha:
Big Rudraksha - It will be in the size of an Amla fruit (Dhatri phala) with a radius above 2 c.m. It gives both Materialistic and Spiritual wealth (Bhoga Moksha prada).
Medium sized Rudraksha - It will be in the size of Zizyphus fruit (Badari phala) with a radius between 1 to 2 c.m.
Small Rudraksha - It will be in the size of Chick pea (Chana) with a radius below 1 c.m. It gives Materialistic wealth.
There are some Rudrakshas with a radius of 4 c.m and above! They are very very rare. And they are not meant for normal people as they are the costliest. Great Spiritual leaders use them for the benefits of the world. Never mistake a Fake Rudraksha with them.
Strong Rudraksha are superior to Weak Rudraksha. Brittle Rudraksha are from Unripe fruits. They will lose grooves in few years. But that doesn’t mean that it has stopped working. By the usage, every rudra bead gets wear and tear and may loose its grooves size. This is acceptable. For best results, either change or replace rudrakshas within 4-5 years.
DO NOT USE BROKEN OR IRREGULAR SHAPED RUDRA BEADS EVER. THOSE RESULTS IN POVERTY AND MISS-HAPPENINGS IN LIFE!
Beads from Rudraksha fruits which dry up on the tree itself are Best. Rudraksha fruits will grasp Solar power and Cosmic energy as they ripen. They gain Magnetic field as they dry up.
No Rudraksha bead has a Natural Central Hole in it. The holes are man made holes, used for putting a thread or holy dhaga between the rudra. The hole pointer on the rudra is just 0.01% approx.
Rudraksha beads which should not be used:
Uneven shaped Rudraksha and Rudraksha spoiled by Insects and fungi should never be used. They will have Negative Energy and bring Misfortune.
Nepal Rudraksha (From Himalayas) is the costliest. But it is totally a myth that they are the best. No one can compare the effects and benefits of natural rudra beads scientifically just on the basis of their Origin. It is a commercial statement that nepali rudrakshas are the best. They are bigger in size, which may have better rays and energy effects, which is understandable and acceptable. But that doesn’t make an Indonesian / Indian Origin Rudra as inferior.
What is a Genuine Rudraksha? How to identify Fake Rudrakshas. Why Fake Rudrakshas are created?
Nobody will create Fake Panch mukhi Rudraksha. Because, they are available ample in the Nature. But, Ek Mukhi Rudraksh, Gauri shankar Rudraksha, Trijuti Rudraksha, and some Rare Rudrakshas are limited. They are not available up to the demand. This lead to creation of Fake Rudrakshas.
What is a Genuine Rudraksha?
It must be a Rudraksha. Not Bhadraksha or some other. No alterations should be done to prove it as a different Rudraksha. No art-work should be done.
Genuine Ek Mukhi:
Availability of Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is very limited. Best Ek mukhi is Round shaped with a single line on it. It is not at all available commercially. But, rudraksha traders sell half-moon shaped Ek Mukhi instead of Round 1 Mukhi. They generally be found saying that ek mukhi round rudraksha does not exist, which is wrong. Very few professional sellers deal in real Ek Mukhi Round or Siddha Bead.
How Fake Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is created?
By using glue to cover the lines of Two mukhi or Three mukhi.
By printing Shivling, Serpent, and Aum on Bhadraksha.
By using Zizyphus (Badari) seeds.
By using Dalbergia (Simshupa) and Chestnut wood.
By using Lac or some Synthetic material to create it artificially!
How to identify Fake Ekmukhi?
Your experience would be the best bet. Or you can buy from any authentic seller known for these rare rudrakshas. He will never cheat as he will be more concerned about his reputation for being known for these rare products. X-ray can also be done. It shows the ingredients and confirms that it is a natural rudra bead.
Other Fake Rudraksha:
Gauri Shankar Rudraksha - Two Rudrakshas are joined artificially to create it. Normally Gauri shankar is made up of two Panch mukhi Rudrakshas.
We can't find many Trijuti Rudrakshas in the Nature. These are also generally formed out of Panch mukhis. But others are also present. Fakes are created by pasting 3 rudrakshas with glue, which can easily be identified by naked eye. Rare Rudrakshas above 14 faces are also present. But, purchase only from Genuine Sellers known for these rare products worldwide.
How Ek Mukhi Rudraksha mala is created? Is it made up of all Ek Mukhi Rudrakshas or One Ek Mukhi joined with a set of Panch Mukhi Rudrakshas? What is the use of it?
Ek Mukhi Rudraksha Mala:
Yes. There are many styles in making a Mala with Ek Mukhi Rudraksha. But, all are Specific. Each Mala has it's own benefits. And used in different conditions.
Normal Ek Mukhi Rudraksh Mala:
One Ek mukhi is placed at the center of a Panch mukhi Rudraksh Mala. Red cotton thread is the best one to prepare this Mala. Next preference goes to Silver. We can also use Gold or Silk threads. It burns all Sins. It gives Success every where. It is mainly used as a Japamala. After Chanting, it is kept at Shivaling.
One Mukhi Rudraksh Raksha Mala:
It is prepared with 27 Best quality Panch Mukhi Rudraksh and One Ek mukhi Rudraksh. Red thread is used. Ek mukhi is joined by using Naga Nandham (Ttread in the form of a Snake). It protects life. It protects from accidents (Akala Mrityu Haram). It should be used for Chanting and Wearing as well.
Ek Mukhi Mala with two 2 Mukhi:
It is called Gauri shankara hasta Mala. Here only three Rudraksha are used. It gives enormous energy. It is useful for success in Competitions and Elections.
Ek Mukhi Deva Jyothi Raksha Kavach:
It is actually not a Mala. One Gauri Shankar Rudraksh and One Ek muki Rudraksh are placed one by one and joined by Red thread. It is tied to the wrist while Chanting Shiva Kavach, Mrityunjaya Kavach and Rudraksha Kavach. After that you can wear it. It protects Family from evil powers. Lord Shiva and Parvathi blesses them.
All Ek Mukhi Rudraksha Mala!
Is it possible? Why not? Ek mukhi are rare. I accept. But, not extremely rare. Big merchants can make this Ek mukhi Mala possible. How much it costs? The Cost may be in Lakhs of Rupees. Will it give Super Natural Powers? Yes. The possesser of this complete 1 Mukhi Mala can achieve unachievable things and can rule the world. Sometimes the powers can become unbearable and can be used for wrong deeds. Be carefull!
Ek Mukhi with Diamonds:
Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is very Precious. Sometimes Ornaments are created and Diamonds are also studded in those Ornaments. Puranas and Tantras have no objection for this.
