Rudraksha for Masik Shivratri (June 2017)
Can wearing a Rudraksha on Masik Shivratri bring in infinite blessings for a better life? As per shastraas lord Shiva is the presiding deity of Shivratri. He is the God of Gods and is worshipped as Mahadev and addressed as Rathrivallabha. His meditative powers drew infinite energy and from the tears of his right, left , third eye ,the Rudraksha were formed. Even when lord Shiva manifested as the jyothirlinga neither Bramha nor Vishnu could fathom its height or depth. So infinite was his presence and power that anything associated with him became totems of infinite energy. Nandi, snakes, Trishula, Vibhuti and Rudraksha all are embodiments of his infinite power. It is no wonder that on Masik Shivratri people apply Bhasma and wear a Rudraksha while meditating on him. Maun ( silence) is considered to be the highest form of dhyan ( meditation). Lord Shiva had observed this for a thousand years before vanquishing Tripurasur. Rudra was a result of that infinite energy and Rudraksha the evidence of divine victory.
On the day of Shivratri people who observe a “vrata” ( fast) should wake up before sunrise, bathe, wear a Rudraksha mala and apply vibhuti. After this, prayers should be offered to lord Shiva with utmost devotion to seek his blessings. The observer of this fast should visit a Shiva temple and offer water, milk, honey, curd, white flowers and fruits . This act is known to bring in divine forgiveness and blessings. Some people offer lotus flowers, incense sticks and ring bells as a part of the ceremony.
The observer of this vrata should also keep vigil all night, while chanting the mantra “ Om Namah Shivaya”. On this day it is important to experience the spirit of Shiva deep within your soul. Lord Shiva is addressed as Parmatma and the journey of a human soul is incomplete unless it is able to merge its consciousness with this divine supreme soul. Masik Shivratri is the occasion to experience this . When you wear a Rudraksha close to your heart it works in a synchronized way with the energy field of the heart as per texts. When hearts desires are fulfilled the soul is enriched ,happy and finally willing to experience Moksha. A Rudraksha is known to offer protection from diseases, betrayal, accidents and untimely death as per puraanas. Anybody who wore this divine seed and surrendered mind, body and soul to lord Shiva was resiliently shielded by him.
