Use the 5 Bead Rudraksha for Starters

Post by Khoo Hock Leong » Tue Sep 12, 2017 7:04 am

Hi Learned Members

In this modern living of ours, we are always encountering the six weaknesses of humans like jealousy, anger, lust, greed (including taking beef etc.) etc. This is represented by the Trisamsa.

To prevent the affliction in yourself, wear the 5 bead rudraksha. It represents the 5 elements where nature is made up (meaning we want purity in our nature) and 5th bhava being the 12th of the 6th bhava would help to counter the 6 shripus.

The 5 bead rudraksha is the most plentiful and the cheapest and is Shiva's gift to mankind.

There is a website that details the number of beads to wear. Popular choices are 54+1 beads (the one extra bead is the choker bead) or the 108+1 beads. In fact the 11 face bead which represents the light mass of Shiva or Hanuman, which is mostly used for meditation and gives prosperity overall, can be used in place of the choker bead for the 108+1 rosary.

The website says for the wrist it should always be 12 beads.

Best Regards
Mac Khoo Hock Leong

5 mukhi is the only one that can be used for everyone. Restore the balance of the body and mind. 5 mukhi is Shiva Himself.

You can read the Devi Bhagavata purana for more details on Rudrakshas and their use.
