One Mukhi Rudraksha & The Story of Lord Shiva
In Hindu mythology, there is a story about Lord Shiva and the One Mukhi Rudraksha. Lord Shiva was in his beautiful meditative state on the icy mount Kailash. Parvati, his divine consort, was pondering over her simple existence wondering why only riches, splendor and a bejeweled appearance should be associated with Goddess Lakshmi. She requested Shiva that he should grant her a rich luxurious abode that is unmatched in beauty, wealth and splendor.
The compassionate Lord immediately granted her this wish and ordered Yaksharaja Kubera to build a palace called Shivnagari. This township was an architectural marvel embedded with riches. Parvati was elated and accompanied Shiva to live in this new rich abode. She adorned herself with jewelry and silken attire.
When she approached Lord Shiva his eyes were closed and he was in his usual meditative state. Shiva, the supreme soul, was neither affected by living in the mountains nor amidst splendor and riches. His blissful form made her realize what true happiness is. She asked for forgiveness and returned to Kailash and to stay blissfully with the eternal Shiva.
Just like Lord Shiva who could command unparalleled riches in one moment and stay unaffected by it, the One Mukhi Rudraksha grants such a power to its wearer as per texts.
According to the Shiv Puran (Ch. 25, Sl. 65), Goddess Lakshmi never leaves the place where a One Mukhi Rudraksha is worshiped. This bead is said to grant unparalleled riches to its wearer while allowing them to stay blissfully detached.
Authenticity of the One Mukhi Rudraksha:
It is important to note that the round Nepal one Mukhi Rudraksha is a myth. As per Rudralife’s research and experience, the one Mukhi Nepal beads sold in the market are fakes. People should avoid purchasing them as they are costly and designed to trick the normal eye. The original Ek Mukhi that is naturally available is the Half-moon or cashew nut shaped from South of India (Elaeocarpus Tuberculatus). The half-moon shaped beads are an alternative for the Nepal variety. The other variety that is available is from Indonesia (Java). Rudralife suggests people go for the half-moon shape (Kaju Dana) only as these have shown good results as per customer experiences.
