Why Should One Abstain From Buying Java Rudraksha? (Caveat Emptor “Buyers Beware”)
Welcome to the auspicious world of Rudraksha which is known to be associated or identified with Lord Shiva. This seed is known for its magnetic and paramagnetic properties. The standards of a good quality Rudraksha that has been mentioned time and again in the scriptures very clearly correspond with the variety of Rudraksha found in Nepal. It’s large size, clear lines, thorny surface with specific contours all tilt the balance of energy in its favor.
A large number of Rudraksha grow in Java and Papua New Guinea. These seeds are much smaller in size. The surface is smoother with lesser protrusions plus the facets (mukhis) are not clearly visible. The Java variety is easily available and cheaper in price. The problem here is that due to its size and physical contour they emit less energy as compared to the Nepal beads. Since the surface is smoother their capacity to dissipate energy is also hugely affected. Unfortunately in spite of being low-priced and popular they are also manipulated by traders to produce higher mukhi beads. At times x-ray analysis shows absence of seeds in the fully developed compartments. Such beads when worn on the body fail to dissipate the expected electromagnetic and paramagnetic properties that form an integral part of the human bioelectrical field for positive results.
Java and Papua New Guinea are known for warm tropical weather, volcanic soil and salt laden breeze. Though it may be conducive to cultivating and maintaining large Rudraksha farms, the size of the seed produced continues to stay disappointingly smaller than its Nepal counterpart. Thus, the Nepal beads actually capture the spirit of calm exuded by this meditative powerful deity – Lord Shiva.
Elaeocarpus Ganitrus Roxb stays the same in Nepal or any other Geographic location but the size of this divine seed seems to shrink further and further as it moves further away from the Himalayas. The only place where Java beads are preferred to be used are in the Japamala with 108 beads as their size is small and convenient for completing rounds of mantra chanting. It is to be noted that even a normal Nepal Rudraksha is much larger than the collector size of Java beads.
Remember the rule “Caveat Emptor” (Buyers Beware) while purchasing a Java Rudraksha because of easy availability and low pricing. Do not compromise on the quality of divine energy because of lack of information on the product, pricing, service, hidden defects and frauds. This ancient contract law principle applies to this divine seed also. We firmly advise customers to buy only high quality Nepal Rudraksha and refrain from using Java beads in any power combinations irrespective of quantity or pricing. Remember you can always start with a small combination of Nepal beads and add on other beads gradually. Size of the bead and its place of origin definitely matters! Customer testimonials continue to support our observation about Java beads being much less effective than the Nepal beads.
