One should always purchase a heavy and very well formed Fifteen Mukhi Rudraksha. One should refer the Jabalo Upanishad
to know the correct procedure for wearing this rudraksha. While wearing the mala one should chant the appropriate mantra continuously. After the rudraksha is worn, it needs to be further energized. So care should be taken to chant the mantra during the day, whenever one gets time. It can also be rejuvenated by meditation
, facing east in the morning. Once a person has started wearing the rudraksha, he should never show it to others. If the rudraksha is exposed, it may benefit others who have touched or viewed it. If the thread is broken while wearing rudraksha, it should be changed with a new thread. It should be taken care that the bead should touch the body after wearing it. This will help to pass the energy of the rudraksha via the soul to the entire human body. It is also advised that before going to bed, the rudraksha should be removed from the body and placed in a holy place. A rudraksha worn by some other person should never be worn. One should also not give their rudraksha to some other person. To maintain the sanctity of rudraksha, women are advised not wear it during their period of menstruation. It is believed that a rudraksha worn during that period will lose its sanctity. One should also not wear the rudraksha while going to funerals and brothels. It is advised that the rudraksha should be worn throughout ones life. Maximum benefit from the rudraksha is unattainable, if it is worn irregularly. It should therefore become a part of ones body, wearing it daily like clothes.
Testing the Genuity of Rudraksha
For Fifteen Mukhi Rudraksha to function effectively, one should take care that the rudraksha they have bought is a genuine one. The various tests that can be conducted to test the genuity of any rudraksha are cut test, properties test, copper coin
test, eye test and water sink test.
One can test the rudraksha by cutting the bead horizontally. If one finds same number of compartments as the number of lines, then the rudraksha is a genuine one. But doing so will destroy the rudraksha.
A genuine rudraksha will exhibit properties like inductance, capacitance, conduction of electric current. So, it can be tested for its properties.
Copper Coin Test
In the Copper Coin Test, rudraksha beads are placed between two copper coins. After this arrangement, the beads are expected to rotate slightly. This is due to the physical and magnetic properties of the rudraksha beads.
A real rudraksha can be identified with the help of a magnifying glass. Deep lining (facets or the mukhis) from the upper part to the lower part of the rudraksha should be observable, using this glass.
Water Sink Test
A fake rudraksha made out of wood
and impregnated with lead
will sink also in water. So, this test is undependable and may not give genuine results.
