Rudraksha care and worship by Narasimhaye
Posted November 2, 2008on:
|Now that you have found rudraksha, you can begin the next step of also taking measures to protect yourself. It is said in holy texts that a person can only find rudraksha if he/she has been blessed by Lord Shiva in previous lives. The saints also say that every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Encouraging you to also sit quietly and reflect also on the good things that happened in your life. There are always good things and bad things so we must always count the blessings too.
The protection from rudraksha are not time bound but would highly recommend that you recite the mantra Aum Namah Shivaya 9 times before you wear the beads after bath. Once a month or a fortnight, put the beads on the altar and offer fruit, unsalted nuts, flowers, ghee lamp, jaggery and incense. Do not allow others to touch your beads and don’t lend them to anyone to wear.
Its also essential to practice maintaining the beads by washing, drying thoroughly and oiling then perform Re-energization process every 3 to 6 months or when you feel the beads are becoming dry. Rudraksha are holy beads. Not maintaining them is like not maintaining or cleaning the altar/puja room to remove negative energies.
Keep at least one rudraksha mala on you in the evenings. Place the rest on the altar or in a drawer near you. Parad can be worn while sleeping but must be taken off if ‘spousal relations’ are engaged in.
Meanwhile, obtain 9 beads of 5 mukhi rudraksha and put in steel vessel overnight with spring water and some drops of rose water. In the morning, take a shower or bath, take out the beads and pour all the water from the steel vessel over yourself from head to foot. Do this for 3 months and see.
All the above suggestions are like sadhana, you need to dedicate a bit of time each day to perform them with bhakti. They don’t take very long to do. If you focus on them with discipline, you will see positive results one way or another.
