Purity & Identification

Tests for a Genuine Rudraksha.

To meet the ever increasing demand of different faceted beads, traders have started manufacturing rarely faceted beads such as the one faced Rudraksha body (The Ek Mukhi Rudraksha). Beads of Areca nut, Nutmeg or Tulsi are used to fashion Rudraksha Beads. In such circumstances the individual who wants to buy a genuine Rudraksha is in a dilemma

There are few methods of testing a genuine Rudraksha:

Cut Test:

A fool proof method is to cut the Rudraksha bead horizontally. One will find the same number of compartments as that of the number of lines . However the drawback is that by this method, the bead gets destroyed.

Properties Test:


The other is to find out whether the beads exhibit properties like inductance, capacitance, conduction of electric current etc.

The copper coin test:

It is generally held that if Rudraksha beads are placed between two copper coins it should rotate slightly. This is due to the physical and magnetic properties of the Rudraksha beads. This test requires a high level of expertise.

Eye test:

A fake or the artificial Rudraksha may look like a real one but in these Rudraksha the facets (mukhis) can not be made as real as those present on the real Rudraksha. In a Rudraksha the facets or the mukhis means deep lining from the upper part to the lower part of Rudraksha. Looking at these deep linings (facets) with the help of a magnifying glass, one can easily recognize a real Rudraksha.

Water test:

Some times a higher valued Rudraksha (Gaurishankar Rudraksha or a Trijuti) are made by artificially joining two or three Rudraksha with the help of glue etc. In case of doubt such Rudraksha should be boiled in water for one to two hours. A sharp discoloration will take place at the joint in case of artificial Rudraksha.

The test wherein the Rudraksha Bead dips in water (commonly known as water test) is not dependable because:


A fake Rudraksha made out of wood and impregnated with lead will sink in 
water thereby giving a false impression of a real Rudraksha.

Some times a rare available Rudraksha (like one mukhi) is made by tempering
other easily available real Rudraksha beads of lesser value. Such   
Rudraksha will also sink in water .

Still it is one of the most popular methods to test the beads and many times gives accurate results.

Source :

One of the best way to get a real Rudraksha is to source it from a reputed dealer.

However it is desirable that certain precautions be taken while using Rudraksha since it is a divine gift and therefore very pious.

  • First of all a person who wants to wear a Rudraksha, should make sure of the type of Rudraksha which is most suitable and idle for him taking in to account his zodiac sign, problems or desires for which he wants to wear Rudraksha.


    • While Purchasing a Rudraksha one should make sure that he is purchasing a genuine Rudraksha only otherwise he will not get the desirable effects. One of the best way is to purchase a Rudraksha from some authentic source only and not from any street vendors.


      • While wearing a Rudraksha for the first time, it is advisable to do so on the particular day of the week which again depends upon the type of the Rudraksha. Also it is necessary that a proper Puja (Pran Pratishta) is done before wearing a Rudraksha for the first time to get the maximum beneficial effects.


        • A Rudraksha can be worn around the neck ( as a mala or pendent ) or around the wrist as a bracelet. It can also be kept in the  Puja room to be used for japa.


          • Rudraksha mala, Bracelet or a pendent can be made using gold, silver or even a strong thread preferably of red color.


            • Rudraksha mala should be cleaned after 15 to 20 days using Lukewarm water and mild liquid soap. One should never use a strong detergents or very hot/ boiling water.


              • One may periodically apply mustered oil/ sandalwood oil to the Rudraksha bead so that they remain shiny and perfumed. Rudraksha beads are very strong and if a proper care and clining  is done and if protected from getting physically damaged, these beads can be passed on from one generation to another.


                • A person can wear more then one Rudraksha bead of the same mukhi. Alternately he can also wear a mala/ bracelet having a combination of  various mukhi Rudraksha.


                  • Rudraksha beads are a product of nature. Hence they vary in their size and colors even if they are identical in Mukhas (facets) . However this variation of size and color dose not increases/  decreases the effectivenessof this divine bead.


                    • Children should not be allowed to wear one mukhi Rudraksha.


                      • Rudraksha should not be worn while   attending a funeral.


                        • The best way is to keep the Rudraksha in Puja place before going to sleep and wear the same next morning only after taking a bath.


                          • Females may avoid  using Rudraksha for three four days when nature is at its work.


                            • Family members should not keep interchanging Neck Malas, Japa Malas or Rudraksha beads. The bond created between a wearer and Rudraksha is very private and hence the wearer must not share her/his Rudrakshawith a third party. But it can be willed and passed on to the next generation.

                            Rudraksha Legend


                            Ancient Vedic scriptures talk on different circumstances leading to the creation of “Rudra”. All the epics are centered on Lord Shiva, the god of eternal cycle of creation and destruction. Lord Shiva is also known by the name “Rudra”. According to Shiva puran, once lord Shiva went into deep meditation for a long period for the well-being of all living beings. After waking from the state of meditation, he opened his eyes and instantly tear drops fell on the earth. On reaching the ground, tear drops took the form of a seed which later grew into Rudraksha tree. Another epic boosts a different tale.


                            It says that there used to be a demon called “Tripura Sur” who gained so much power that all the gods felt intimidated by him. The demon misused his power on brutally torturing the innocents. All the gods were helpless and finally turned to lord Shiva to eliminate the evils of the demon. Shiva decided to use his very powerful and destructive weapon called Aaghor to kill the demon. But on realizing the devastating effects the weapon would bring about, Shiva became very emotional and tears naturally fell down from his eyes and thus landed on the earth. Mother earth enveloped the tear drops and gave birth to a Rudraksha tree. Another tale foretells that when Lord Shiva woke up from his deep meditation, tear drops welled down from his eyes on realizing the sufferings of living creatures. His Almighty’s teardrops on reaching the earth germinated into a seed. It is believed that the seed ofRudraksha contains the secrets of entire evolution of the cosmos within it.

                            Lord Shiva is always portrayed wearing rosary of Rudraksha beads on his head, arms and hands. With this came the religious, spiritual, physical and materialistic significance of Rudraksha. This further brought it path to spiritual enlightment and liberation. Thereafter ensued the use of holy Rudraksha beads by Shiva devotees. Hindu scriptures like ShivmahaPurana, Shreemaddevibhagwat, Padma Purana, ling Purana, Ashtamalikopnishad, Nirnayasindhoo, Mantramaharnava, Mahakaal Sanmhita, Rudrakshajabalopnishad, Vrihajjabalopnishad, Shivaswarodaya and Sarvollastantra ravishes on how Lord Shiva crossed the line of caste and creed and blessed all the four varnas, Brahmin, Ksatriya, Vaisya and Sudra, to use holy Rudraksha beads for their well-beings. It is also believed that if a person encounters and meets death while wearing Rudraksha, she/he will surely attain morkha, meaning liberation from all the sins.

                            Later the merits of Rudraksha were evidenced in the late 1960s by a group of scientists lead by Dr Subas Rai PHD Institute of Technology University in Banaras India. Dr. Roy's research boosted that as scripted in the scripturesRudrakshas indeed possess Powerful Electromagnetic, Paramagnetic and Inductive Properties confirmed that the healing powers of Rudraksha beads flow from their electro-magnetic properties. Many schools of yogic thoughts advocates for the religious, scientific and spiritual significance of Rudraksha.
