Rudraksha Beads have been used from very ancient times all over the world by ancient Gurus, Pundits and Sages in India who very well knew about their beneficial effects. The word Rudraksha, comes from the two Sanskrit words Rudra, which means Lord Shiva, and Aksha, meaning “eyes”. Botanically, the rudraksha tree is known as Elaeocarpus Ganitrus Roxb. The Seed of this plant has a rough surface and a hole running through it from top to bottom. Each seed also possesses from 1 to 21 vertical lines running down its surface, like the longitude lines on a globe. These lines are known as Mukhas, or Facets, and are natural formations of the seed. Seeds with Four vertical line are known as Four -mukhi (4 Faced ); those with Seven lines are Seven -mukhi ( 7 Faced ), and so on. Hence there are Many types of Rudrakshas depending upon the facets and each bead has a different effect on us, depending on the number of mukhas it has.

In the modern age, many scientists have extensively researched the properties of Rudraksha Beads for verifying the ancient beliefs about its beneficial properties and they have also concluded that Rudraksha Beads do have a large number of beneficial properties which can be used for the well being of Human beings. Individual from every walk of life irrespective of caste, creed, religion, nationality or gender can use Rudraksha to gain Spiritual, Physical and Materialistic benefits.

Please note that Each Rudraksha have a Ruling Planet and wearing of that Rudraksha Bead proves to be very beneficial to remove or pacify the Malefic effects of that planet. A person can wear even a combination of more than one Rudraksha if needed as per the number of malefics in his/her horoscope.

Normally Rudraksha from One Mukhi to 14 Mukhi and Gauri Shanker Rudraksha are very widely used for their Astrological as well as Spiritual Effects. I have personally got very good results for my clients with Rudraksha Beads for pacifying Malefics in their Charts and therefore I feel that sharing of this knowledge might prove useful for others as well.

For Example, if the planet Sun is placed in sign Libra in a person’s horoscope and therefore has become Debilitated, then wearing a 12 Mukhi Rudraksha should prove very beneficial to him. Similarly if planet Rahu is transiting through the 12th house of a persons horoscope, then wearing of a 8 Mukhi Rudraksha should be helpful to him. Similarly a person should wear a 7 Mukhi or 14 Mukhi Rudraksha during the Saturn Sade Sati i.e. when the planet Saturn is transiting through the 12th, 1st and 2nd house from his natal chart Moon.
