This Hindu Compliance System describes the fundamental concepts and principles of quality for making a piece of rudraksha jewelry and the importance of wearing rudraksha jewelry, which is commonly followed for all the śaiva sampradāya in Sanatana Hindu dharma. The Hindu scriptures elaborately talk about the multitude of benefits of wearing rudraksha. Here, we will walk through some of them compiled from various Hindu scriptures.

Omnipresent Lord Siva continued gazing towards the demon Tripural for his annihilation for thousands of years without blinking his eyelids. Tears started dropping from both eyes and fell on the ground, which produced the great Rudraksha trees. The tears dropped into the tree out of mercy for the devotees.

Benefits of Rudraksha

  1. The result of a glimpse of Rudraksha is a million times more than the effect of donating a cow with the calf to a learned Brahmin who observes the tenets of the scriptures (6).

  3. Devotees who recite mantras wearing the Rudraksha are regarded as endowed with hundreds of millions of times and thousands of millions of times virtues (8).
  4. Great virtues are bestowed upon the devotee who wears the Rudraksa respectfully. Rudrākṣa of the embolic myrobalan size is considered the best (9).
  5. The face of the Rudraksa is equivalent to Lord Rudra. All the gods reside on the points of it. The person who wears such Rudrāksas immediately becomes free from all sins (39).

  9. The hymn produces endless results recited with the help of the garland of Rudraksa. The hymn, recited without the help of Rudraksa, obtains the results as per its number (45).
  10. The life of the person who does not wear a single Rudräkşa, the producer of immense results, is as fruitless as the non-bearer of the three sacred horizontal lines (Tripundrak) on the forehead (46).
  11. One who worships Rudraksha by bathing it in water will secure the results of Linga worship (47).
  12. Immense is the glory of Rudraksa (48).

  1. One who wears Rudraksa with pearl, coral, crystal, silver, lapis lazuli (cat’s eye), and gold undoubtedly attains the nature of Rudra (43).
