20 MUKHI RUDRAKSHA
Twenty mukhi rudraksha is an extremely rare bead. In one entire season in Nepal, there can be just four or five in a whole year. Even the Indonesian beads of this variety are found in lesser numbers. Normally, it is difficult even to see this rudraksha in its pure form at most shops. Most of the time one sees only fake ones as the real ones are only sold through personal contacts.
Twenty mukhi rudraksha represents Brahm (Not just Brahma, the creator, but the Hindu Trinity consisting of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva). It is said to derive energy from various sources and is full of divine powers. The powers of nine planets, ten Digpals and the power of the Trinity are all converged in this rudraksha.
According to Hindu teachings, the nine planets are Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu (the last two shadow planets). Agni, Indra, Varun, Soam, Vishnu, Vrahaspati, Vayu and Kuber are the eight digpals, who are the lords of the directions. There are variations in their classifications in different scriptures.
The Trinity of Gods is Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva the power of these 20 centers is concentrated in the 20 mukhs of this rudraksha.
It is a rare rudraksha and if one is able to get it, one should handle it with great reverence while wearing it or worshipping it.

Om Hreem Hreem Hum Hum Brahmane Namah
