Rudraksha is a Hindu mythological symbol that resembles Lord Shiva and is often worn to protect and meditate. Rudra is the Hindu name for Lord Shiva, while ‘aksha means tears. Rudraksha beads can also be translated as “the tears of Lord Shiva”.

These spiritual beads have the same value and can be worn by devotees to Lord Shiva as semi-precious gemstones. Many online and offline sellers sell authentic Rudraksha beads, including several MukhiRudraksha beads or an arrangement of 1-5 MukhiRudraksha beads.

Rudraksha should not be expected and worn with complete devotion and happiness. This will help you to gain knowledge about Shiva. The power of Rudraksha can be worn even without reciting mantras. You are well aware that fraudsters can be found on any market, and this is why you need to be cautious when purchasing something so precious and sacred, like a Rudraksha. We’ll be discussing some of the methods that you can determine which Rudraksha beads are authentic and which ones are fake in this blog. Let’s get started.

Things to Consider Before You Buy a Rudraksha

Purchase it from a trusted source

You must first find a seller who only sells certified products. You can then do your research and find sellers that are certified by the government. Rudraksha can be described as a semi-precious gemstone, and it is valuable and not necessarily cheap. It is better to avoid consulting scams and buy only spiritual items from reputable sources.

Do not bargain for or borrow a Rudraksha

Rudraksha is a popular gift because it brings luck. As luck cannot be borrowed from another person, Rudraksha cannot be borrowed. You cannot borrow money to purchase a Rudraksha mala or bead, and you should wait until you can manage the money and buy a Rudraksha mala.

Rudraksha Types

Rudrakshas are primarily from Nepal and Indonesia, and some parts of India also have Rudrakshas. Rudrakshas from Nepal are superior in quality and have the most powerful results, and Java beads are smaller and have less power than Nepal beads. The demand for Nepal beads is high, so the prices are also high.

Exchange of Rudraksha with Others: Rudraksha creates a physical, mental, and spiritual connection with the wearer. It is not recommended to exchange it often with other people, and it can be passed down from generation to generation.

Rudraksha must be energized thoroughly before being worn. In some cases, Rudraksha, which is not properly energized, can cause negative vibes. Rudraksha beads are powerful and can be channelled to harmony with the microcosm by being energized in the name of their wearer.

A Rudraksha can bring positivity and joy to the wearer’s daily life.
