Rudraksha - blessings of Lord Shiva

Rudraksha is the blessing of Lord Shiva. For thousands of years, mankind all over the world is getting immense advantage of wearing Rudraksha beads. Rudraksha is not just a bead, but rather it is a blessing of Lord Shiva which helps in attaining healthy mind, body and soul. 

It is also crucial in attaining good health and gives relief from blood pressure, stress, anxiety, depression and other related diseases. Rudraksha is a Sanskrit word which is formed through combining two words namely "Rudra" meaning Lord Shiva and "Aksha" meaning eyes. Combining these two meanings, the term Rudraksha denote Lord Shiva eyes. Aksha denotes the third eye of Lord Shiva.

There is an ancient interesting story associated with origin of Rudraksha in Shiv Purana. Maa Parvati, the divine consort of Lord Shiva once asked him about the origin of Rudraksha. Lord Shiva told that he meditated for thousand years keeping his eyes closed and when he came out of the state of meditation, a few drops of tears fell on the ground, it took the form of the seeds, from these seeds the Rudraksha tree came into existence. 

Another ancient story says that when Lord Shiva burnt demon Tripurasura, tears came out of his eyes which were converted into Rudraksha tree. Rudraksha are very beneficial in meditation which leads us to ultimate goal of gaining salvation in life. It is believed that the seed of Rudraksha contains the secrets of entire evolution of the cosmos within it. The sages have been wearing Rudraksha for centuries to cultivate mental, physical and health prowess to attain fearlessness on their spiritual path to enlightenment.

The Rudraksha bead has a lot of medicinal properties and is used in the cure for mental illness, blood pressure, small pox and chicken pox, poisons, cough, fever, breathlessness and fits.

Rudraksha is a rare gift of nature to mankind in the sense, that most beads come with a natural hole drilled in the centre, as if nature intended man to use the rudraksha bead to form a chain. Such rudraksha beads are considered especially auspicious. Rudraksha is often believed to symbolize the link between earth and heaven, between man and god. Hence Rudraksha is the object of veneration and also a source to reach the higher self.

Each seed also possesses from 1 to 38 vertical lines running down its surface, like the longitude lines on a globe. These lines are known as mukhi, or faces, and are natural formations of the seed. Seeds with one vertical line are known as Eka-mukhi (one facet), which are very rare; those with two lines are Dvi-mukhi (two facets), and so on. Each bead has different effects on the wearer, depending on the number of mukhi or faces it has. Each of the many types of Rudraksha Beads have a governing Deity and specific powers and properties.

In the later posts I will discuss the advantages of various beads of rudraksha along with ruling planets of such Rudraksha

The desire to get promotion in job and achievement of success in career is the most important concern of every working person. Many people contact management consultants, astrologers, and numerologists etc to find out how they can get promotion on the job.
In my interactions with clients, I am often asked this question as to when they would get a chance of promotion. I try to answer this question through looking at their horoscope, but I have often seen that people want short cuts to reach to next level.
There is no substitute for hard work but still my experience with the clients and looking at thousands of horoscopes for combination relating to job promotion, I am suggesting some Lal Kitab Remedies which can be done to increase chances of promotion.
It is important to mention here that these are general remedies which are not a substitute for professional consultation because then remedies are suggested depending on various permutations and combinations in your horoscope and through in-depth analysis of your D-10 chart for professional success and accomplishments. It is necessary to follow these remedies with full faith and devotion and surely you will see a positive change in your professional life.
1.      According to Lal Kitab, Saturn has an important influence for getting a job and gaining success in it. Pleasing Lord Saturn will also result in removal of obstacles in promotion. Lord Saturn could be pleased through first of all doing hard work for getting promotion and in addition you can serve crows with food.
2.      On every Thursday, you can offer banana to a cow to increase chances of promotion on job.
3.      For growth in service and removal of obstacles in promotion, offer seven cereals (Sapta Dhanya) to birds. The constituents of seven cereals/satnaja are Sabut Urad or Kali Daal, Whole Green Gram or Sabut Moong or Whole Moong Daal, Wheat, Kaale Chane, Barley Grain or Jau, Rice, Bajra
4.      Offer clear water mixed with jiggery and yellow flowers in morning before 8 a.m. to Sun. Chant Gayatri Mantra (108 times). Do this remedy for 11 continuous days starting from Sunday. Even after finishing the remedy, you can continue to offer water to Sun for favorable posting and promotion.
5.      Offer 21 Abhimantri Gomti Chakra to Lord Shiva on a Monday and offer pure water to Lord Shiva
6.      For people in clerical job or working in lower cadre, they can offer food to a handicapped person or alternatively give money for food to a handicap person once in two months.
