  • Goddess Durga truly does protect not only me but the entire family

    Dear Kantiji, I made the head mala with 1 Mukhi in the center and placed the nine, 9 mukhi beads in two pairs on each side of the head with the ninth 9 mukhi at the rear of the mala. I, however felt that I wanted to have the 1 Mukhi Rudraksha with me all the time so it became part of a mala containing 1 through 14 Mukhi including a newly acquired 9 mukhi I asked Ms. Neeta for, plus Ganesha Bead and GauriShankar totaling 28 Rudraksha in total. I tried wearing the nine 9 mukhi as a braclet but found that my activities placed them in harm's way. I was afraid that I would inadvertently hit them on close

Your gifts are also appreciated. I am listening to the Rudraksha Poojan & Dharan, it is very nice. I have placed the picture of Goddess Mahalaxmi along with the lovely Shree Yantra on my altar.

  • The most happy news for us

    Dear All, Good Day. I first purchased a Akarshaya Siddha Mala from RC. Immediately after that I was given the additional responsibility of photographing all my company�s activity. For short it can be called as I became the official photographer of my company. After that I got my bank loan to clear off all my financial issues. I did that. Along with that I went for an Indra Mala. This time after much delay from my side I got the mala which was reserved to me by Neetaji (which was energized on the 9 days of navratri). I started wearing both malas and my spiritual levels are increasing very muc close
