EK MUKHI RUDRAKSHA
The Indonesian one mukhi rudraksha is very small, 5 mm to 12 mm in length and 3 mm to 6 mm in diameter. It has the shape of a thick rice grain. One mukhi is complete on one side and on the other side there is a partial closure line just near the mouth. Only one seed occurs inside the Indonesian one mukhi rudraksha, which is almost similar in looks to the Indonesia variety of two mukhi rudraksha, the only difference being that in one mukhi only one line is complete, while in two mukhi, one can clearly see two complete lines. One mukhi is slightly smaller in size, slightly flatter and shorter than the two mukhi. This passes the x-ray test.
The one mukhi rudraksha is blessed by Lord shiva himself. Mighty Hindu God who is entirely lovable and worshipped in mythology as the most powerful of the Gods, the creator of language, music, dance and Ayurveda and as the lord of love and responsible for the cycle of birth and death. In fact, Hinduism and its philosophy and thoughts cannot be understood fully without understanding the Shaivite principles.
One mukhi rudraksha washes away the sins as serious as ‘brahman hatya’ (killing of a Brahmin). It enhances knowledge about the Supreme (Brahma Gyan) and the wearer is known to win over his senses. He then engages himself in Para-Tatva (Shiva Tatva). It is also known to give eternal bliss and nirvana (moksha) after death. At whichever place this rudraksha is worshipped, Goddess Lakshmi (Goddess of Wealth) bestows Her presence. It is the most auspicious rudraksha among all beads and not only does it bring the wearer or worshipper closer to Shiva (spirituality and kindness) but also fulfills all his or her desires in the material world. The wearer also gains powers of concentration and enjoys inner peace.
As per Shiva Puran, one mukhi rudraksha offers worldly pleasures and salvation and therefore has a unique place among all the rudrakshas. It gives leadership qualities and skills to cope with stressful situations and hence is a pref erred choice for those who assume leadership roles or head any organisation.
The controlling planet of this rudraksha is Sun. All negative effects posed by this planet on a person are got over by wearing this rudraksha. hs use is said to cure headache, eye defects, piles and diseases of the liver and skin.
As per recounts of various experiences by people, if a person has any addiction (specially vices like smoking, drinking, drug abuse, tobacco chewing, over eating, excessive talking and the like), wearing a one mukhi (in these cases Indonesian rudraksha can be used) helps him or her in overcoming such habits. A full transformation takes place as the wearer quits these vices or habits with little efforts and the lifestyle gets changed permanently.
Who Should Wear?
All adult persons can wear this rudraksha. It can also be kept in a puja room or altar, where regular worshipping can be done. Those who are addicted to habits or particular lifestyles, which are not conducive to their physical and mental well-being, can wear the one mukhi Indonesian rudraksha to come out of the predicament. If one wears more than one bead, it is believed to be proportionately more effective.
A one mukhi bead is worn by persons requiring favour of Sun as a planet or to remove its malevolent effects, or those seeking devotion to God, minimising attachments to the worldly things and ultimately hoping to attain nirvana.
