Rudraksha & Lava
Benefits of Wearing Rudraksha
Rudraksha is a very helpful support because it creates a cocoon of your own energy. It harmonises any environment around you so that you feel comfortable, relaxed and easily able to express yourself.
Rudraksha: A shield against negative energies
It is also a shield against negative energies. It is possible for some people to use negative energies to cause harm to someone else, or there may be a very bad energy in a place where you live or work. A rudraksha is a kind of shield against this and stops you from feeling the ill effects of any environment, situation or person. You may still be aware of it, but it will not effect you.
The number of faces a bead can have varies from a single face up to 21 faces. Five-faced beads or panchmukhi is safe and good for everyone. It is for general wellbeing, health and freedom. It lowers your blood pressure, calms your nerves and brings a certain calmness and alertness in your nervous system.
If you are a balanced person and you function sensibly in your life, prosperity will come. It happens naturally when energies function well. If you have chosen to purify your life and be balance always then Rudraksha malas are a valuable tool and aid. When someone is walking the spiritual path, he wants to utilise every support on the way to enhance himself, and mala beads are definitely a good support.
To wear Rudraksha is to move towards Shiva Consciousness which is the ultimate truth for a yogi. Shiva is the source of all that is Yoga, and that leads to union, so in reaching Shiva consciousness we reach the infinite that is beyond anything. This is the true goal of Yoga and the true purpose of wearing Rudraksha. Rudraksha contains the energy of Shiva.
