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 a 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 face Nepali Rudraksha (with one seed inside) is not found anywhere in the world.

It is shown in a 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 single or more than one compartment along with seeds.

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

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

If any one 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 a side.

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 face.

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, to find a good quality Indonesian one face is not as easy as it seems. A good study is required to finalise it. It is a 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 as one face is mounting on the other. It gets nourishment from the rudraksha on which it is mounted.

Sometimes when the fruit has ripen the sawar separates  from the rudraksha naturally without leaving any trace.

Nepali one face Rudraksha has natural hole in it. Both the sawar and the rudraksha on which it is mounted has a natural hole. So, it can be worn both the 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 have 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 face rudraksha. It is  only a matter of belief.

Fake one face rudraksha is made from two face bhadraksha by eliminating one line(face).

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