What is Rudraksha?

Rudraksha beads are the original Vedic Beads of Power worn by the Gods, Yogis and Rishis since times immemorial on their path to Enlightenment and Liberation. They are sometimes referred to as the tears of Lord Shiva. History is proof of successful people adorning these to gain power, health, protection and self empowerment. Rudraksha beads are very powerful beads which are used to cure many physical and emotional disorders. Rudraksha beads are found in different types from 1 mukhi to 21 mukhi Rudraksha .

They find bold mention in Vedic Puranas, Upanishads and Srimadbhagawad as being the most powerful aid to alignment of self and for living fulfilled life. These books have specific reference of 1 Mukhi Rudraksha to 21 Mukhi Rudraksha beads each capable of aligning the positive energies around us to specific aspects of health, happiness, spiritual fulfillment, prosperity, creativity, intuitive ability, material fulfillment, family harmony, attraction, self empowerment and fearless life.

Conclusive studies and testimonials prove Rudraksha to be one of the fastest healing methods available till date.

Rudraksha beads help to open Chakras and starts healing mind and body in an unbelievable time period of 48 hours.

It is also my finding that rudrakshas have the ability to match high frequency energies from meditation and crystals and hold them inside so those frequencies stay with you.

Easy to use. Only need to be worn for a couple of hours a day and no strict regulations need to be followed.

There are also rudrakshas that have more then 21 mukhi lines but they are only found outside Nepal such as Indonesia where you can find Rudrakshas that go up to 31, however the best quality and most powerful rudrakshas are to be found in Nepal and those versions only go up to 21.

Now there is also a note on Mukhi 1 rudraksha's. The real Mukhi 1 is round and is rarely found. The other is moon shaped and officially is not a rudraksha and is found in abundance.

Real Mukhi 1 rudraksha

There is a place in the mountains between Coimbatore and Ooty where a very special ashram is located of a yogi by the name of Tavayogi. This is the place where you can find real mukhi 1 Rudrakshas in small and very large sizes as shown below in his ashram. He speaks very well English so do not hesitate to contact him if you are interested in the mukhi 1 rudraksha.

Sri Agathiyar Gnana Peedham Thirukovil
Thuripaalam, Kallar (8 km west of Mettupalayam towards Coonoor)

Just give him a call for advice or possibilities on all the different rudrakshas. He has many mukhi 1 through 21 rudrakshas in stock and if you want he can combine them into one very strong rudraksha necklace specifically made for you. He speaks very well English and is happy to help where ever he can. Prices are very reasonable and any profits made on it are all going to the building of an Appar temple near Perambalur.

Some pictures of the temple project of Swamiji

This is the plan for the construction of the Appar temple in Perambalur, Tamil Nadu. Click to enlarge.

This is the area that will be transformed into a temple.

Here are some of the people living next to the building site that are helping Swamiji.

There is already a small building on the site for pujas, but nothing in the form of a temple yet.
