Rudraksha – The beneficial remedy

Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotishaacharya, PHD, MBA)

1. Believe or not, Lord Shiva's Fruit Rudraksh can nullify the effects of malefic planets (Navagraphas) to a great extent. Shastras say Rudraksh of any Mukhis can never do any harm to the wearer unlike Gems which need to be carefully chosen with reference to Horoscope.

2. The term 'Rudraksh' literally stands for the eyes of Lord Shiva, Rudra meaning Shiva and Aksha meaning from the eyes. Ancient vedic scriptures like Shiva Purana PadmaPurarna Srimad Bagwata Rudraksha Jabbalaoapanishad, Mantra Maharnava, and other Ancient classics mention about the greatness and wonderful properties of Rudraksh beads. As per vedic scriptures Lord Shiva the Supreme Soul, infinite Intelligence and most powerful deity was performing penance for one thousand years for the salvation of human beings when after thousand years he opened his eyes and tears of compassion dropped and this drop became the seeds from which Rudraksh trees grew. Lord Shiva then said to his consort Parvati, "O! Parameshwar No other necklace, garland or bead will be so auspicious and powerful as Rudraksh". Known as fruit of Lord Shiva.

3. Rudraksh come in different Mukhis or the clefts or furrows on the surface. Shastras speak of 1 to 38 mukhis but normally 1 to 14 mukhis are used for astrological benefits.
