@rishirraghav The ruling planet of 7 faced rudraksha bead is Saturn and it can be worn to remove the ill effects of saturn in horoscope. You may wear it as a pendant after energizing, purifying and charging it with the Om Namaha Shivaya Mantra (or the beeja mantra Aum Hum Namah) preferably on Monday or Thursday. Most sellers do the Pran Prathista before sending the beads to their customers. In such cases the beads can be worn after bath and prayer at the puja room with utmost devotion on any auspicious day without much rituals.

Deepak : How you wear now is good enough and i do not see any reasons for you to change it. Only make sure that you maintain the purity of the beads and charge it with mantras regularly.

Deepak 6 years ago

I think you have to serialize these information. I am agreed with Saurabh as far as this informative article is concerned! At the same time i want to suggest that you should write elaborately on each type of Rudraksh wirh detail description and its mystic element!

By the way all the best for future series of article on Rudraksha!
