Praan Pratishtha means filling a diving object with ‘prana’, the life force. Rudraksha beads at Rudra Centre are purified before being sent out for delivery. Vedas recommend that any object associated with the Divine must be kept in the state of absolute purity. Just like we take bath in the Ganges in order to purify ourselves, divine objects like Rudraksha beads need to be purified. The purificatory process is called Pran Prathisha performed by experts and qualified Brahmins at Rudra Centre. The experts well-versed in Vedas chant suitable mantras dedicated to purifying divine objects and driving away negative energies. These mantras are powerful and their flawless utterances in line with Vedas purify the eads. Once they are purified, they are then neatly packed in clean cloth and delivered to the clients.
