Rudraksha Mala & Bracelet: Everything You Need To Know
Rudraksha is the seed of the Eliocarpus ganitrus tree and plays an important role in spirituality, meditation and prayer. They are available from 1 Mukhi to 21 Mukhi and emit positive frequencies that are conducive to chakra healing and can increase concentration, composure as well as spiritual upliftment. These beads, when worn on the body, create positive frequencies in the Central Nervous System to cure medical ailments like cardiovascular disease, Diabetes, migraines, back pains, arthritis, mental ailments, hypertension and many more. The most popular way to wear these beads is in the form of Rudraksha Mala and Rudraksha Bracelet.
Rudraksha Mala and Rudraksha Bracelet
Usually the rudraksha beads are strung together as a mala, or necklace. Traditionally, these malas should have 108 beads plus one extra, known as the ‘bindu’. The ‘bindu’ prevents the raw energy radiating through the mala from becoming cyclical, so that it’s channelized in the best possible way. Rudraksha Mala is made by stringing the beads in either a silk thread or a cotton thread. It can be worn all the time, even when you shower or sleep. If you take cold water baths and are don’t use harsh chemical soaps, it is especially good for the water to flow over the mala and upon your body. Those who are not always comfortable wearing a mala around their neck prefer Rudraksha bracelet. Again, the science behind these bracelets remains the same, and these can even be strung in gold, silver or copper wire instead of simple thread. Our Expert Tip: Metal wire holding the rudraksha beads must not be tightened too close as the inside of the rudraksha cracks under pressure. Many spiritual seekers prefer to wear the combination of Rudraksha mala and bracelet together, as together they shield against all possible negative energies and have potent healing powers as well.
