One Face Rudraksha Bead (Sawar)

Mythical rare One Face (1-Mukhi) Rudraksha for Opening of new dimensions of prosperity (i.e health, wealth, success) and spiritualism.

One Face Nepali round rudraksha is highly sought after in the whole world. The rich & the poor everyone want this due to its highly mysterious and magical properties.

The myths and legends create a mesmerizing aura around it. Everyone wants to wear it.

The irony is that round one mukhi Nepali Rudraksha (with one seed inside) is not found anywhere in the world.

It is shown in an exhibition in Pashupatinath temple (Nepal) in a festival known as Balachaturdashi. But its internal structure is not known to me. So, I can not say whether it is authentic or not. It may have a single or more than one compartment along with seeds.

Pashupatinath Temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It survived the highly destructive earthquake of 7.8 on the Richter scale on the year 25th April 2015.

So, in the record, there is only one round Nepali One Face rudraksha (with one seed) in the whole world which may or may not fulfill the scientific criteria of a One Face Rudraksha.

If anyone gets a real Nepali One Face Rudraksha then the shape is egg-shaped (but not cashew shape), a little bit flat, eye-shaped if seen from aside.

A  proper Pran -Pratishta (Activation- Bringing life to the rudraksha) according to shastras (ancient texts) should be done by a highly spiritual person to get full benefits.

One face rudraksha from Nepal is found (not round ). It looks similar to Nepali two faces.

The other option is Indonesian One Face which is also not easily available. Why I say not easily available because in this type of bead one very small line may also be found. I do not consider it true one face

So, finding a good-quality Indonesian One Mukhi is not as easy as it seems. A good study is required to finalize it. It is very minute work as labs consider it one face. I do not consider it true one face. You can differ from my opinion. One face Rudraksha  (not round one ) from Nepal mounts on some other face rudraksha. This bead is known as Sawar (Reason: One Mukhi Rudraksha is mounting on the other). It gets nourishment from the rudraksha on which it is mounted.

Sometimes when the fruit has ripened the Sawar separates from the rudraksha naturally without leaving any trace.

Nepali one face Rudraksha has a natural hole in it. Both the Sawar and the rudraksha on which it is mounted have a natural hole. So, it can be worn both ways either when it is mounted or when it is separated.

Whenever someone finds such a bead he should observe it carefully as it may be cut from the bead on which it is mounted. When it is cut or forcefully separated, the traces can be seen.

Sometimes beads are glued very efficiently, then it is not easy to distinguish between the fake and the original one.

Round one face rudrakshas are in the market which has two or more compartments(seeds) inside when examined by X-ray and CT scan. It is an underdeveloped rudraksha with only one face outside but more than one compartment (seeds) inside.

It should have one compartment (or seed) inside also. So scientifically it is not a One-Mukhi rudraksha. It is only a matter of belief.

Fake One Mukhi rudraksha is made from two-face Bhadrakshas by eliminating one line(face).

The cashew-shaped species from South India, Sri Lanka does not fulfill the conditions of One Face round Nepali bead.

It’s not Elaeocarpus Ganitrus Roxb. It is Tubercultus Roxb. So, scientifically it is not the rudraksha that is mentioned in our ancient texts.

Planet Sun-related issues are solved after wearing as it governs the planet Sun. It helps in curing eye disease, migraine, liver problems, skin problems, Hemorrhoids, etc..

We can rid of bad habits such as smoking cigarettes, tobacco,  all type of alcohol consumption, etc. after wearing it.

It helps us in controlling our senses. Bless us with spiritual awakenings.

It gives the wearer ultimate bliss and in the end, the wearer attains moksha. The wearer resides in the Shiva Loka. The wearer is able to understand māyā (illusion)

It gives both spiritual and material benefits of the highest order. The One Mukhi Rudraksha fulfills all the wishes of a wearer.

ॐ रुद्रम्  (OM Rudram -Padam Puran)

ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम्
उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान्मृत्योर्मुक्षीय माऽमृतात् /

Energy of Bhagwan Shiva

There is a very rigorous and special process of Purification and Energisation. It is needed to unlock the maximum energy of a Rudraksha. It takes about a month to complete the process.

Purification & Energisation is a very important process without which no one should wear a Rudraksha. Rudraksha absorbs different types of energy before reaching you as it goes in many hands and many places. 

So, nowadays this process becomes more important not only for unlocking the hidden potential of rudraksha but also for washing out unwanted energies.

Energy can not be unlocked without proper methods and constant practice. That’s why generally Rudrakshas do not operate in their full capacity. So, the next most important thing is Purification & Energisation of a Rudraksha

।।रुद्राक्षधारणच्श्रेष्ठम न किञ्चदापि विद्यते ।।

{ There is nothing best to wear Rudrakshas. Means Rudrakshas are the best solution for every kind of problem}

This sloka is mentioned in Shri Devi Bhagavatam (श्रीदेवीभागवतं महापुराणं)

ॐ नमः शिवाय (OM NAMAH SHIVAY)
