Care & Precautions While Wearing Rudraksha
Acquiring an authentic Rudraksha is a challenge in itself. But the hunt doesn't stop there. If the bead has not been purified, sanctified and energized, it is of no use. The Rudrakshas are very rare to find. Obviously, something so rare will come to you at a price. Hundreds of Rudraksha beads grow on the same tree, but only one in hundred is the magical bead that you are looking for. What can make the Rudraksha even more powerful and effective is the power invested in it through prayers, through purification and energisation and through the ongoing process of retaining its sanctity. Utmost care and certain precautions should be observed in order to get the maximum benefit from it and maintain its sanctity.
Before wearing the Rudraksha for the first time, it should be blessed and sanctified by chanting the mantra associated with it and performing the right prayers and rituals.
Rudrakasha should always be kept oiled. It should regularly be cleaned, oiled and bathed with incense especially when you are not using the bead for sometime.
Ideally, keep them off the ground; they can be kept on or wrapped in wool or silk when you're not wearing them. Once a month, they can be cleansed by rubbing them with Sandalwood Oil.
The Rudraksha should not be worn at times when the energy is directed downward, i.e., during bowel movements, during sexual intercourse.
Rudraksha may create in some people a sense of aloofness or separateness from the world, which is one reason they are so wonderful for meditation, but it may depend on your type of work whether you choose to wear them in daily activity.
Rudrakasha beads should always be worn in a cotton thread or a gold or a silver chain. Rudrakasha should never be worn in form of a bracelet.
Always keep your Rudraksha clean. Remove the dust and dirt that settle in the pores of the bead. Clean these as frequently as possible with a soft brush. If the thread becomes dirty or worn out, change it.
After cleaning, wash your Rudraksha with some blessed holy water. This helps in maintaining its sanctity.
Rudraksha should not be worn while visiting a funeral ground or when visiting a newly born baby
Women must not wear the Rudraksha during their menstrual cycle.
