Dear Spiritual Explorer: What kind of power is in the Rudraksha Power Bracelet? I can really use some. Thanks. Raleigh D., San Diego, CA
Rudraksha Power Bracelet
Dear Raleigh: This Rudraksha Power Bracelet certainly does not appear to be a power amulet, totem or anything that on its face looks powerful. In fact, its very simplicity attests to a power that is beyond what one ordinarily thinks of power. It is Shiva power!
Th Rudraksha Power Bracelet is powerful in its simplicity; it bespeaks true spiritual power, which surpasses any attempt at material force, or power. It is the power of the god Shiva whose tears transformed to rudrakshas as he contemplated the suffering of humanity.
There are many types of malas consisting of different beads: some jade, some pearl, some agate or blue sapphire. All of these beads are considered powerful and are means to effect silent contemplation as one counts them one by one saying a sacred mantra.
However, the humble rudraksha beads while not as attractive or shiny as the other beads have in their rough-hewn nature a feeling of connection to the earth, which was Shiva’s gift as his tears fell to the earth.
When one does “japa” or recitation of mantra with the rudraksha beads, the mantra that would be most fitting would probably be the Om Namah Shiva mantra. Om Namah Shiva means I am Shiva, and when one recites, utilizing the rudraksha beads, I am Shiva in Sanskrit or English, you can count on feeling powerful, the true type of power that is inherent in devotional chanting.
As one chants Om Namah Shiva using the rudraksha beads to count with, one can bring to mind the great god Shiva, the Auspicious One, also known as Mahadeva. He is the Supreme God within Shaivism, one of the three most influential denominations in contemporary Hinduism.
Shiva is depicted as an omniscient, contemplative yogi who lives an ascetic life on Mount Kailash, as well as a householder who had three consecutive wives. Shiva is also the patron god of yoga and the arts.
As you place this Rudraksha Power Bracelet on your arm, I am willing to bet you will feel the power of Shiva if you call his name and recite his mantra. Shiva’s power awaits you!
Om Namah Shiva Ki Jai!
