12 Mukhi Rudraksha

12 Mukhi Rudraksha is blessed by Lord Surya. Surya (also known as Aditya) is the Hindu god of the Sun. He is considered the creator of the universe and the source of all life. He is the supreme soul who brings light and warmth to the world. Each day he travels across the sky in his golden chariot pulled by seven horses and driven by Aruna (the name of the charioteer of Lord Surya).

Surya is the mythological father of many notable sons, including Manu (progenitor of the human race), Yama (god of the dead), the Ashvins (twin physicians to the gods), Karna (a great warrior in the Mahabharata), and Sugriva (king of the monkeys in the Ramayana).

The iconography of Lord Surya is often portrayed as riding a chariot driven by 7 horses or alternatively, by 1 horse with 7 heads (representing the colours of the rainbow and seven chakras). Lord Surya is sometimes shown with 2 hands, holding one lotus in each and sometimes with 4 hands, holding a lotus, Sankha (conch), Chakra (discus) and Gada (mace).
