Ek Mukhi in half moon shape has emerged as a potent alternative. It is found in Rameshwaram, parts of Kerala and Indonesia and it has been assumed as an effective substitute, so much so that this is the only Rudraksha which is generally available. The Ek Mukh half moon shape is also known as ‘Chandra Mukhi’.
Wearer of Ek Mukhi Rudraksha
Every adult person can wear this Rudraksha, especially those who are seeking superior levels of concentration, during sacred practices like meditation and those who are easily moved and do not desire to be touched upon by the occurrences or ups and downs around them. This Rudraksha is perfect for doctors and those busy with social work for better output. As a matter of fact, this Rudraksha should be worn by everyone or kept in puja places (an area within the home especially devoted to the gods and goddesses, generally kept immaculate) for achieving blessings of Lord Shiva and for an all-inclusive happiness. Any meditation mala of higher level always has Ek Mukhi Rudraksha.
Qualities of Ek Mukhi Rudraksha
According to the recognised characteristics of high quality Rudraksha, it should have a natural hole and it should be almost circular in shape. In this division the authentic Ek Mukhi, in which only one line or Mukh has developed is a great oddity and botanically an exceedingly unusual phenomenon.
Astrologically the dominating planet of Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is Sun and hence all the negative characteristics due to the influence of Sun are removed by wearing this Rudraksha. This Rudraksha is helpful to remove headache, eye problems and diseases with respect to liver.
