1 Mukhi Rudraksha

The Indonesian 1 Mukhi Rudraksha is very small, 6 mm to 12 mm in length and 3 mm to 6 mm in diameter. It has the shape of a thick rice grain. One mukhi is complete on one side and on the other side there is a partial closure line just near the mouth.

Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is blessed by Lord Shiva. The mighty Hindu God who is entirely lovable and worshipped in Hindu mythology as the most powerful of the Gods also known as Mahadeva (The greatest among gods).

In fact, Hinduism and its philosophy cannot be understood fully without understanding the Shaivite principles. He can be understood marginally through devotion and blessings.

Wearing rudraksha may have different objectives for people, but so far the opinion of most rudraksha users is that the beads possess divinity and mystical powers due to the blessings of the great Lord Shiva.

His blessings are obtained prior to wearing rudraksha and regular spiritual charging of the beads is recommended by doing puja and chanting mantra.

The word Shiva means auspiciousness and prosperity-bestowing principle. The reverse of Shiva is Vash meaning to enlighten; therefore the one who enlightens is Him. He is absolute, self-radiant and illuminates the world.
