What are the benefits of wearing a Rudraksha?
*Rudraksha is very supportive in maintaining physical & mental balance. For spiritual seekers it supports to enhance one’s spiritual growth. It’s curative properties have been utilized worldwide for a number of physical, mental psychosomatic illnesses.
*Assisting the spiritual seeker in many ways, Rudraksha are potent aids & support for one's spiritual sadhana (spiritual practice).
*For someone who is constantly on the move & who eats & sleeps in various places, Rudraksha is a very good support because it creates a cocoon of your own energy. You might have noticed that when you go to a new place, sometimes in certain places you cannot fall asleep even if you are physically tired. This is because, if the situation around you is not conducive to your kind of energy, it will not let you settle down. Today, people have started eating & sleeping in different places because of their business or profession, so a Rudraksha can be helpful.
*It is also a way of checking the quality of food. If you hold it above any positive pranic substance, it will move in a clockwise direction. If you hold it over any negative pranic substance, it will move in anti-clockwise direction.
*It is also a kind of shield against negative energies. It is possible for some people to use negative energies to cause harm to someone else. This is a whole science by itself. The Atharvana Veda, is all about how to use energies to your advantage & to someone else’s detriment. If somebody who has mastery over this wants to use it, so many things – extreme suffering & even death can be caused. You may think nobody will do negative things to you, but it is not necessary that it should be targeted at you. Let us say somebody did it to the person sitting next to you, but he is not receptive to it. Now you may get it because you are sitting next to him. It is just like when two people are shooting at each other on the street, they do not intend to shoot you, but you may get shot. Similarly these things also can happen. It is not intended for you, but it can happen if you are in the wrong place at the wrong moment. There need not be a huge fear about such things, but a mala is a kind of protection from that.
