Rudraksha | Mana Blog... for all
Dec 28, 2010


In Sanskrit, Rudraksha means “Eyes of Shiva” and is empowered with mystical, spiritual and medicinal powers that enhance the well being of the wearer. The beads also impart astrological benefits and it is believed that the wearer of Rudraksha is always untouched by sins, impious thoughts and deeds. The powers of Rudraksha are associated with the number of mukhi (the clefts and furrows) or faces the beads have. The Rudraksha bead can have a number of faces ranging from 1-38. The most common one is the 5-faced or Panchmukhi Rudraksha and the rarest one is 1-face or Ekmukhi Rudraksha. Rudraksha comes in four shades of fair, light brown, dark brown and black.

Rudraksha beads do possess powerful electromagnetic, paramagnetic and inductive properties. The healing powers of the Rudraksha bead are derived from such properties.
Blood circulation and heart beats automatically induce a magnetic field around the body and particularly the heart region. Accordingly, a balancing force is exerted on the heart to regulate it if it starts beating above or below normal rates. This action helps to ensure ideal blood circulation in the body.


Depending upon the polarity and intensity of the induced magnetic field, Rudraksha beads transmit subtle electrical and inductive impulses with opposing polarity and intensity. When Rudraksha beads are placed over the heart, they act to stabilize the heart beat.


Some astrologers suggest the following Rudraksha Mukhis according to the ruling planet:
