Parad is also very useful in controlling various diseases like High Blood Pressure and Asthma and increases sex power. Parad has special significance in Ayurveda too. It is also referred to as the flowing metalloid which means metal which is fluid in nature.
Mercury has significant usage in Ayurveda and is called a flowing metalloid (fluid metal). It is used in the treatment of ailments such as asthma, sexual problems, and blood pressure. Parad solidified in the form of beads can be used in the treatment of diabetes, blood pressure, and heart diseases. The bead or rosary of Parad beads should be worn around the neck or waist. Parad has several medicinal properties. Also, Parad as mentioned in the scriptures is used to boost physical strength and reduce ailments such as diabetes and asthma. The other supreme benefits of Parad include nullification of Vastu defects, protection against black magic, increased sexual power, self-confidence, and harmony in relationships.
Parad benefits range from Astrological to Scientific. Everything on this Earth has the energy and has a frequency at which it vibrates. The Parad metal beholds the powerful energies of Lord Shiva and when it comes in contact with a human body it offers a range of benefits and liberates from many physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual blockages. Worshipping one Parad Shivling is considered to have the spiritual benefits equivalent to worshipping numerous Shivling which are made of different stones.
According to the Brahma Purana, anyone who worships the Parad Shiv Ling irrespective of gender, caste, religion, or creed enjoys worldly pleasures, is successful in every walk of life, and attains Moksha (salvation). The Parad also finds its mention in the Rig Veda among the 117 shlokas that are given about the Soma. According to one of the folklores which is quite popular in Vedic mythology is that of the yogis. According to this folklore, the yogis and individuals seeking the truth travel to a strange place which is known as “Siddhashrama'' which is located in the Himalayas. So, after a certain period of meditating, these Yogis consume mercury in order to get into the deep state of meditation and to reduce the amount of breaths inhaled. We all know that mercury in its original form cannot be consumed as it can kill. Hence, the Yogis before consuming the Parad perform some tantra and mantra vidya on it so that it becomes potable. This potable form of mercury is called the “Gauri- Chintamani''. Parad metal is often utilized to make Parad Shiv Ling, Parad Gutika, Parad Ring, and like.

This mystical Parad mani is prepared after all Samskaras by a Vaidya who is from Jaipur and whose name is Shree Pandit Deenanath.

Nagarjuna: The Father of India's Ancient Science of Metals
Much is talked about Parad and other metals across the world. The chemistry of these metals is mentioned in Rasashastra India's ancient science of using the fundamental essences of various substances (metals) for healing and spiritual growth. It was Nagarjun, a philosopher, metallurgist, and saint (10th century) who extensively studied Mercury and its secret powers. Although Rasashastra was a branch of Ayurveda, it received recognition due to his efforts. Fundamentally Rasashastra mentions purification, transmutation, and potentiation of various metals, gemstones, and herb essences. It is a highly superior and sacred art.
Preparation of Parad: Purifying process of Parad
A Siddh Parad is prepared through the secret Vedic rituals and several samskara processes passed on from generations of Vaidyas and Siddhas. In accordance with the scriptures such as Ayurveda science, only Parad is an element that can remain mixed with other elements without actually losing its own identity. Naturally occurring mercury is a poison but after treating it to various processes like Sweden, Mardan, Murcchhan, Utthapan, and Patan, etc. it can be cleansed of all toxic properties. Such purified Parad becomes an equivalent of a life-giving potion.
In its original state, Parad has certain impurities, namely, Naag (lead), Vang (Tin), Guru (overly heaviness), Bhushail (water impurities), Bhumij (stone, mud, gravel), Girij(minerals), Chapal (instability), Mala (endogenous, exogenous waste), Agni (intolerance to heat), Vish (poison).
As per Ayurvedic science, Parad is the only element that can remain mixed with other elements without losing its own identity. At Rudra Centre, we follow the Vedic codes of purification and process the mercury in order to purify it. As per Rasashastra (A Vedic treatise on chemicals), purified Parad has a blue touch internally and dazzling whiteness externally. The Parad undergoes eight samskaras which are churned with Neem leaves, turmeric, lemon, and 24 different exotic herbs in order to add to its auspiciousness.
Parad works on the Sahasrara Chakra which is in the form of a thousand petal lotus on the top of the head. It enhances the association with Lord Shiva and benefits in meditation and spiritual routines. It purifies the Citta which is a part of the mind-system storing all memories and thoughts. It cures diseases of the brain and nervous system. It brings peace, contentment, concentration, dhyana, and support in Samadhi. Siddh Parad when prepared as per ancient knowledge of Parad Bandhan contains miraculous properties of healing and protection.

Parad at Rudra Centre is largely prepared by Pandit Deenanathji from Jaipur. To cope with the increasing demand for Parad items, we have started preparing Parad on our own premises also.
Siddha Parad items offered by Rudra Centre
According to Parad Samhita (Vedic treatise on mercury), Parad should be put through the eight stages of purification called Eight Samskaras. We undertake the process of purifying Parad and eliminate Saptakanchuki. The Siddha Parad (Mercury’s mouth closed with Aghor Vidhya) is formed to make Murthi - Badhha/Agnibadha (heat sustaining) Parad. This alchemical parad gives twenty-four rasas and five tattvas that remove all diseases from the body.
Parad is thus not just an ordinary metal but one of the most auspicious and powerful metals. Make sure you install either a Parad deity idol or a Parad Shiv Ling in the Puja altar of your house and receive the abundant blessings this pious metal offers.

I already wrote one testimonial about my Parad Lingam, but now I have to say something about the rudrakshas. I am completely in awe of the fast changes that are happening to me. In fact, I actually wish that there was a warning as to how strong they could be for sensitive people! Please warn the others! I have been using some standard 5 mukhi japa malas for years for wearing and chanting, but none that were truly blessed in a puja, only by my Satguru. I initially ordered a 3 mukhi and 7 mukhi for me and my husband. It was nice to get them....and I could feel that the diffficulties in my life,

I would like to thank him very much for all the help and arrangements he made for my purchase here. All these pleasant exper
Thanks Neeta. All lingas arrived in a very well-packaged box. The emerald linga is most breathtaking. The parad linga\'s yoni was perfect for a ruby linga that I had procured a couple of years back from a minerologist in Karnataka. I was always looking for a yoni for him and this one fit as though it had been constructed for him, perfectly. Cordially, Will
