SIGNIFICANCE OF 6000 JAPAS FOR SURYA DOSHA
It is believed that one of the most effective ways to overcome Surya Dosha is by chanting the Surya Vedic Mantra (mentioned above) for 6000 times, within the stipulated time of 40 days. This means the individual is free to do the Japa every day consistently, without breaking the chain. Whether the chanting of 6000 Surya Mantra is finished in one day or more, it will have to be finished within 40 days. The number 6000 has been coming down the ages and it is the great Rishis and Wise one, Acharyas, who with their keen observation and research have decided on the number of Japas which need to be chanted to get relief from Surya Dosha. It is recommended that the native intending to do the Japa, first learn the correct and pure pronunciation of the Surya Mantra, as it is in Sanskrit. Wrong pronunciation does not hold the vibration which the actual Sanskrit words in the Mantra have, therefore, it will not have the desired effect.
Vedic Mantras have a high vibration and has been used since ancient times for connecting with the Divine energies. The sound frequencies created while chanting the Surya Mantra connects the individual with Lord Surya's energy and appeases Him. Chanting the Surya Mantra 6000 times helps to gain the blessings of Lord Sun, thereby liberating the native from Surya Dosha. It is recommended to start the Surya Mantra Japas on Sunday, early morning after having a bath. You may choose to use a Japa Mala which will help to keep the count. Keep your intension pure, and concentrate while doing the Japa. The 6000 Japas need to be done every day, without breaking the chain.
It is important to mention that the more Japas you do, the better the benefits. If you do 25% more than the number of Japas mentioned, considering that there may be small mistakes of pronunciation etc., which may have been done, then the blessings are benevolent.

Dear Neetajee So nice to hear back from you. The Mahashakti Ratna Kavach - (8 Gemstone Gold Bracelet) is showing its power. I am feeling better and confidence as well as new opportunity are keep coming to me. I just received a new offer that I have been waiting for - that is working from home and travel partially. Amazing enough how quick all is coming back together. Very Respectfully, G Vasudev
Hi Neetaji, I always wanted to have Rudraksha since childhood but didnt know reliable source back then. I consider it Shiv ji grace that I came across your website while googling about Rudraksha. I was going through difficult time then. Moment I saw your website I was very happy and I felt you are reliable source but my friends and family were skeptical. Since I was very much interested in buying Rudraksha, my friend suggested me to talk to someone she has seen wearing Rudraksha in our office. Its coincidence or my luck that guy was Rudraksha Ratna customer from long time. I was so happy
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.
