There is hardly any Hindu family in India where Rd. is not present in some form either or a mala or Rudraks humankind for their health, wealth, prosperity, and to lead of Raksha as a bead. It is a gift of Lord Shiva given for welf of stressfree life. Modern-day research and scientific study of the beads prove Its effectiveness. Wearing Rudrave helps in balancing of Chakras of the body and also stability to emotions and all kinds of thoughts, Ones make the aura of the whole body and all the Chakras balanced and effective by wearing Rudraksha can Our ancient shastras like Shivpuran, Devibhagwat, Padmapuran, and others mention about the great benefits of wearing and worshipping Rudraksha. Devibhagwat says “Naa Utah param stotram, Naa Utah para star vratam Akshayeshu cha danish Rudraksha as vishishyate”
It means “There is no other prayer or any big donation or sacrifice compared to Rudraksha (wearing).”
The benefits of Rudraksha are known and experienced by many, however, it has been emphasized in all our ancient texts that worshipping, pooja, and sanctification of Rudraksha should definitely be done to get the best effects. Devibhagwat says that it is inauspicious to wear Rudraksha without pooja and chanting of mantras. Lord Shiva, the greatest among gods called Mahadev gets pleased by those who wear and worship Rudraksha. Actually, Rudraksha is the manifestation of Lord Shiva and is called “Shiva Swaroop”
We present here a ritual called “Rudraksha Abhishek”, for the worshipping of Rudraksha. Before its commencement please arrange all the materials and items required for this pooja (as mention in the early pages). Choose a proper day, preferably a Monday or any auspicious day like full Moon day, Shivratri day, Pradosh day, or any religious festival day like Navratri, Diwali, Ram Navami, Janmashtami, etc. If you have a Worshipped Shivaling or a photo of Lord Shiva it is fine otherwise go to a Shiva temple or any religious or clean place and keep all items near you. Follow the instructions given in this CD and with devotion and heart full of prayers perform the Rudraksha pooja.
You may keep the written version of the worshipping also with you to correctly follow all the rituals. In this pooja, (like in meditation) pronouncing the mantras correctly is important. In this CD all the mantras have been pronounced in Vedic way, by Achar. Parade and therefore before starting the pooja please authorize the Acharya to chant mantras and conduct the proceeding on your behalf.
You may also like to pray to Lord Shiva to fulfillment the fulfillment of some special desire through your rudraksha by wearing. Please focus on the pooja and Abhishek of Shiva Swaroop Rudraksha.
