Significance of Bhadrapada Purnima
The practice of following Moon cycles, be it Purnima ( full Moon) or Amavasya (No Moon), exists since ancient times in India. Purnima days are considered high vibration days when people perform ritualistic worship of Deities and other religious/spiritual activities. Bhadrapada Purnima significance is mentioned in ancient Hindu texts as a day when Lord Satyanarayan or Narayan, a swaroop (form) of Lord Vishnu is worshipped. On this day in majority of homes Bhadrapada Purnima Vrat and conducting the Satyanarayan Puja Vrat Vidhi and Katha are done. The Bhadrapada Purnima is an auspicious day and is the full Moon day of Bhadra or Bhadrapada month (August -September) as per Hindu calendar. It also marks the end of the Bhadrapada month. Conducting the Satyanarayan Puja Vrat and listening to or reading the Vrat Katha on this holy day is beneficial for the devotees as it brings all round happiness by eliminating pains and miseries.
As per the Narad Purana, when Narad Muni asked Lord Vishnu about how the miseries of the world can be overcome, Lord Vishnu guided by saying that those who perform the Satyanarayan Puja Vrat and hears or reads the Satyanarayan Katha, will be able to gain freedom from unhappiness and enjoy a prosperous, happy life.

The Bhadrapada Purnima Vrat Puja Vidhi takes almost 3 hours to perform with care. The Satyanrayan Katha is an integral part of this Puja, and the Puja and Vrat remains incomplete if the Vrat Katha is not heard. The Satyanaryan Vrat Katha is a collection of stories that highlight Lord Vishnu's love for His devotees, the benefits one enjoys if the meritorious Satyanarayan Vrat is observed. Devotees should listen without disturbance/distraction of any kind, with focus.
The Bhadrapada Purnima Vrat Puja Vidhi ends with Aarti of Lord Satyanarayan. Devotees also can choose to spend time singing Bhajas(devotional hymns), Kirtans to show their love for the Lord.

Fruit can be consumed if the devotee is not keep a complete fast due to health reasons.
Donating food, clothes to Brahmins and the needy on Bhadrapada Purnima is highly beneficial. Individuals who have bought a new house choose Bhadrapada Purnima for Griha Pravesh Puja ceremony as this is one of the most auspicious and suitable days of the year for this ceremony.
I would like to share some experiences with the group concerning my personal mala. I have only worn it for about 2 weeks but, I already see great success in areas of my life. My personal mala has 3 Gauri Shankar beads that lay across the back of the neck. I must say to you to trust completely in the power of these beads. It has brought tremendous love and harmony in my family within the short time I've worn these precious beads. There was a huge rift that existed between me and my children. It was so bad at one time that I went to an Astrologer to seek help. The astrologer told me after castin
I am keeping a journal for each day. This is my 6th day. I\'ve had A LOT of positive results. After 45 days I will post my journal for members to see. I\'ve noticed influx of wealth, deep deep sleep (I do not remember any dreams), enemies run away or do not want to look at my face, attraction of opposite sex, minimal effort in tasks, focused mind, courage in risk taking activities (stocks), and the biggest one of all extreme focus on mantra of Vishnu, thoughts about Vishnu. Sometimes I am spending hours at a time looking at youtube.com videos of Vishnu. No wonder it is called Narayan Rudraksha
Dear Ms. Neeta: I have taken time to write you my experiences with wearing the 19 mukhi rudraksha that you recommended to me in August. I hope this helps your research and other people. I have been wearing my 19 mukhi Rudraksa provided to me by Ms. Neeta Ji. I have been keeping close track of the transformation I have experienced by wearing this divine bead. I hope to give some understanding on the effects that I have personally felt. I am trying to describe the effects and feelings with humility and in no way am trying to gloat. First off I want to let you know about myself and how I was intr
Dear Neetaji, I have been associated with Rudraksha-Ratna from 2006 onwards. It has been a journey of 5 years now and going strong. I started my divine Journey and accidently hit upon the Rudraksha-Ratna website. My professional life was fine but I in a way looked at it in a complicated way and latter realized that I was going through Ketu Maha Dasha and things would slow down gradually. Having said that, Neetaji and team recommended 10,11,12,13 Muki Rudraksha to help me progress . Within 48 to 60 hours I could feel the silence in my mind and the focus that I gained in my professional life and
Dear Neetaji, Namaste. I wrote you recently that I would be sending payment soon for the Trijuti you had been holding. I am sorry for any delays, but last Friday, my Father passed away. I realize that I emailed you after that, trying to explain what benefits I have been getting form the 19 Muki, but I kind of fell short. I do think it fixed something with my heart as shown on an ECG machine. I also think that the mala as I wear it has increased my psychic awareness. I had a feeling my father death was coming. I also knew that there was nothing to stop it. I am now in mourning. I took of to tak
Dear Neetaji, Yes, please reserve this 19 mukhi for my family. As always, thank you for all your help. fyi - you had recommended for me to wear Kalpavriksha combination and Supreme Kavacham (both I am wearing since November 2011). It took about 3 months for these beads to tune into my chakras, and they are making a profound difference in my though process and daily life. Many people just wont believe these if I were to tell them. Kinjal Patel
Neeta, It is my pleasure to write a testimonial here. I am a Tibetan Buddhism follower in Hong Kong. I first came to know about Rudraksha when I saw many other people using 108 Rudraksha mala in Buddhist countries. I have been always advised by masters to use Rudraksha for chanting. I have heard the myth of Rudraksha, and have always been keen to get one. However, I don�t have confidence to purchase one as there are so many fakes on the market. It was until I came across the website of Rudra Centre that I start knowing more about Rudraksha, its properties and benefits. After discussion my si
Jai Gurudev and a Happy Monday, Rudra Puja, or Rudrabhisheka, which is one of the most ancient and profound rituals in the Indian subcontinent was performed yesterday at Rudracentre Mumbai by Neetaji. It was a puja, a worship, of the benevolent aspect of the consciousness called Shiva, or Rudra. For me, this first Puja which I witnessed by staying awake full night on Mahashivaratri was a spontaneous happening which was born out of the fullness and contentment of myself. It was an innocent playful process reciprocating the supreme love of nature. The state of mind with which the puja was perfor

I want to thank you for making recommendations to my mom. She's been wearing the blue s ring, 7 mukhi with lakshmi pendant, and bracelet of 14 and 18 mukhi. She feels a difference and feels very relaxed. She's very happy with all the items. S Cynthia
The one mukhi rudraksha is exceptionally good for very focused meditation and it makes your meditation less effortful and easy. The mind finds it easy to go near the Spiritual Heart. Have bought 1,2,3....till 19 mukhi (except 18) from you Mrs Vijaya Barathi and Mrs Neeta. Planning for 18, 20 and 21 and make an indrakshi mala. Also add on blue, yellow sapphire, ruby, pearl, coral, amethyst and other 3 to 4 gems and make a perfect combo of rudraksha ratna and study my spiritual and material progress for next few years. thanks and your products are awesome.
