6 Mukhi Rudraksha: Benefits, Powers And Significance

6 Mukhi Rudraksha

The 6 mukhi Rudraksha is available in different varieties and among all varieties, the Nepal and Java Indonesian variety is the most authentic and powerful variety. Nepal beads are bigger, well-developed and have deeply etched mukhi lines. They have more surface area thus giving high intensity of healing frequency. Java beads are comparatively smaller with smooth surfaces and not deeply etched lines and take slightly longer time to show results. However, 6 mukhi rudraksha benefits over a course of time are almost the same. If someone is looking for therapeutic benefits then the 6 mukhi Rudraksha from Nepal will be a better choice because it works faster and is not very highly priced.

Six Mukhi Rudraksha Mantra:



The 6 Mukhi Rudraksha is ruled by Lord Kartikeya so let us take a look at some lesser-known stories about Lord Kartikeya.

Birth of Kartikeya

Skanda SashtiLord Kartikeya was born when the five elements (Panch Mahabhoota – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether) ruled by Lord Shiva united with Shakti (Pure Consciousness).

Shiva is called Panchaanana – the God with five heads and His five heads denote the five elements in Nature. As these five elements combined with the sixth element (Chaitanya Shakti), they gave birth to the Shadaanana (meaning six-headed) also known as Lord Kartikeya.

Kartikeya means six of the seven brightest stars cluster in the night sky called “Krittikas”. He is also called Kumara (young and handsome), Muruga, Murugan, Skanda, Shanmukha and Subrahmanyan which is also translated as ''Dear to the Brahmins”.Lord Kartikeya rides on a peacock and it can be seen in the pictures that the peacock has clutched a snake in his claws. The snake symbolises the ego here which means Kartikeya did not abandon His ego but managed to control it.

Another story mentions that there was one Asura named Tarakasura who was given a boon by Lord Brahma that He would only be killed by someone who was as strong as Lord Shiva. Only the son of Lord Shiva would be as strong as Lord Shiva. Tarakasura knew that Lord Shiva was an ascetic and he thought He would not marry or have children but it is believed that Lord Murugan manifested for the sole purpose of killing Tarakasura. In another version of the story, Tarakasur was defeated by Lord Kartikeya and Tarakasur (ego) became a chicken or rooster after being defeated by Kartikeya.

Kartikeya has a spear in His hand which is also called “Vel” and it represents the Kundalini Shakti.

Why is He called Swaminatha?

Lord Kartikeya is also known as Swaminatha and there is a reason behind it. When Kartikeya was little, He asked Brahma the meaning of Om and Brahma tried explaining Him but He was unsatisfied with the answer.

Lord Kartikeya said that Lord Shiva should explain to him the meaning of Om but even Lord Shiva didn’t know the meaning. Since Kartikeya knew the meaning, He said that He would only tell the meaning of Om if Lord Shiva put Him in the position of the Guru. So Lord Shiva lifted young Kartikeya on His shoulders. Then Lord Kartikeya explained the meaning of the Pranava Mantra (Om) in the ear of Lord Shiva. Om contains the entire Creation i.e. the Trinity – Lord Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva are a part of “Om”. This is the core and also the secret of Om that Lord Kartikeya narrated to Lord Shiva.

On hearing this, Goddess Parvati (Mother of Lord Kartikeya, and an incarnation of the Mother Divine) was overjoyed and said, ‘You have become a Guru (Swami) to my Lord (Natha)!’

She then addressed Her son as “Swaminatha” and ever since Lord Kartikeya also came to be known as Swaminatha.

There is a science where multiple beads of particular mukhi of Rudraksha need to be strung for it to work properly.

Rudraksha consultation as per rashi and Chakra aura analysis is done to identify the root cause of the issue and resolve it and to date many have tremendously benefited from this with many experiencing positive changes in a week’s time.
