The Rudraksha Mala/Rudraksha Rosary has been used since time immemorial by Yogis to attain Siddhi (special occult powers) and the grace of God. Rudraksha bead is a bead with special powers and is also known as the bead of the Yogis/Yogic bead. It is extremely beneficial for people who have a strict meditation discipline and also for those who want to develop concentration and Yogic Powers. It is however very important that you consecrate and energize the Rudraksha Rosary and the Rudraksha Beads in your name with special mantras to derive optimum benefits.
For the chanting of Shiva Mantra the rosary of Rudraksh is the best as propounded by the ancient religious and tantrik texts. It has 108+1 beads and each Rudraksha bead is energized with the Mantras relating to Lord Shiva. This is why the Rudraksha Rosary is very effective. All Mantras of Lord Shiva can only be chanted with the Rudraksh rosary. Here you will find one method of consecrating and energizing the Rudraksh Mala. There are other methods also. This method is comparatively easily and can done by everybody. Remember self help is the best help. It is preferable that you consecrate your rosary yourself. In case due to certain circumstances you cannot- get the same done by someone knowledgeable.
A consecrated Rudraksh Mala has got tremendous powers. If one uses it for meditation and mantra chanting it should be consecrated properly otherwise much of the beneficial effects will be lost.
The mantras for consecrating other faceted beads are different. This consecration applies only to a Rudraksha rosary that has five faceted Rudraksha beads/Panch Mukhi Rudraksha Beads. This method is disclosed and explained for your benefit. And don't forget that: Hired persons do not pay. Do your work yourself.
Astro Journey will shortly upload the audio files of the mantras so that you have no problem in pronunciation of the mantras. In case you have taken initiation from a Guru and the Guru has given other mantras then you should use those mantras.
