8 mukhi Rudraksha mala

Rudraksha beads are strung together as a mala to be worn on neck or as a bracelet.  The effect of multiple beads enhances the effect greatly.  Malas are also used to count the repetition of a mantra. Rudraksha malas have been used by Hindus, as rosaries from at least the 10th century, for meditation purposes and to sanctify the mind, body and the soul.

8 Mukhi Rudraksha

Number of beads in a mala

Standard malas contain 108 prayer beads plus 1 guru bead, as 108 is considered sacred and hence an ideal number for mantra chanting. Malas with 27+1 beads, 32+1 beads, 54+1 beads and 72+1 are also considered auspicious, as per scriptures. It is believed that these numbers of beads, signify a human’s numbers of desires, lies, delusions, per day breaths etc. They also seem to signify the number of deities, the number of paths for salvation, the number of stages in a soul’s journey towards moksha etc. The “guru or meru or bindu bead” indicates the beginning and end of a cycle, while the tassel beads anchor the mala’s stringing cord at the end of the guru bead. 

It is believed that Rudraksha beads are able to hold onto the energy of the recited mantra and aid the worshipper in concentration and spiritual development. However one must ensure the mala that is used for Japa should not be worn on body, as its purpose is only for Japa or chanting of mantra.
