11 Mukhi Rudraksha
11 Mukhi Rudraksha is a traditional blessing in disguise for humankind. It is a bead that has everything and is one of the most desired products for gaining multiple blessings in multiple forms. 11 Mukhi Rudraksha is highly desired because of its capacity to heal the unthinkable and also because it is an alternative to 14 Mukhi Rudraksha if worn with 7 Mukhi Rudraksha.
Story of 11 Mukhi Rudraksha
We all know that when Lord Shiva was meditating on Kailash Parvat, he saw reflections of people dying in pain and agony. One such story was where the devil Kalkaarmukha was making life difficult for everyone on Earth because he had the blessing of invincibility from Brahma ji due to his bravery and confidence. Eventually, Kalkarmukh started misusing this power and he killed 11 saints (preachers of Godly knowledge). Kalkaarmukh used to add the severed heads of these saints to his body and he was misusing all the powers he had to establish his fear and supremacy.
All the Gods were now scared of him because they knew there was only one person who can defeat this devil and this person has to be a Godly saint born on the birthday of the Kalkaarmukh and also has 11 faces on their body. This was an impossible combination and the Gods were sure that only one person had the ability to execute such an impossible task, Hanuman ji.
Lord Hanuman had the boon to be able to take the incarnation of the saint and keep visiting Earth for preaching knowledge. Also, Lord Hanuman had the ability to transform his body in any manner, whenever the need be. All the Gods requested Lord Hanuman to take this initiative and help everyone. This was why Lord Hanuman took birth as a saint on the birth date of Kalkaarmukh, adopted 11 faces, and killed the devil.
When Lord Shiva woke up from his meditation, he called this an act of supreme bravery and courage as well as the act of impossible made possible. Thus, the 11th tear of Lord Shiva was crowned as 11 Mukhi Rudraksha, in commemoration of 11 Mukhi Hanuman.
The Shape of 11 Mukhi Rudraksha
11 Mukhi Rudraksha has 11 visible lines on its face. These lines, also known as cuts/ clefts/ Mukhs, mark the Mukhs of the Rudraksha bead. In a Nepali Rudraksha bead, these cuts are very deep, beautifully carved, parallelly placed, and perfectly clear to count from even afar.
In 11 Mukhi Indonesian Rudraksha bead, the cuts/clefts/ Mukhs are not very clear from afar. The bead needs to be examined up close. The lines are not very deep and are also not very clear but if the Rudraksha is seen under bright light or sunlight, all the lines can be counted easily. 11 Mukhi Rudraksha is an oval-shaped bead of both Indonesian and Nepali origin and is mainly of an elliptical shape rather than being a round shaped bead.
The Indonesian 11 Mukhi Rudraksha is light weighted, light-colored Rudraksha bead, unlike the dark brown-colored, seemingly heavy Nepali Rudraksha bead. While checking for the lines in any Rudraksha bead, make sure the bead is held vertically upside in a good visible light source. Start from the head of the bead and count all the way in a clockwise manner back to the starting point. Now, flip the bead and do the same thing. If both ways the lines are 11, then the bead has no wrong faces carved on it.
Now, take the bead and observe each line individually. The line should start from the hole on the bead in the middle and should go all the way to the backside of the bead without any hindrances in between. This should be repeated with each line individually. If all the lines trace their path from the hole at the top to the hole at the bottom, without breaking anywhere, then the bead is correct for wearing purposes.
This process takes a little time but it is better to spend five extra minutes on scanning than get cheated.
Size of 11 Mukhi Rudraksha
11 Mukhi Indonesian Rudraksha is a small bead, approximately 12 to 15 mm big. It is a light-colored, oval-shaped bead, very lightweight. An average of 11 Mukhi Rudraksha of Indonesian origin weighs around 1.5 grams to 2 grams. A collector bead will be around 16 mm big and not heavier than 2.5 grams.
11 Mukhi Nepali Rudraksha bead is comparatively bigger, darker and more evidently demanded. It is also oval shaped bead weighing around 2 grams to 3 grams. It will also be around 23 to 25 mm big. Some 11 Mukhi Rudraksha beads might be as big as 26 mm and around 3.5 to 4 grams in weight. These are a collector and super collector beads which are not very easy to find. Although, these are a little to find and thus, normally 25 mm is the cap on the Nepali Rudraksha bead in 11 Mukhi Rudraksha.
Effectiveness of 11 Mukhi Rudraksha
There is a misconception that only Nepali Rudraksha beads are effective and Indonesian Rudraksha beads are not at all effective. The reality is, Indonesian Rudraksha beads are a little easy to find out than Nepali Rudraksha beads. This is why they are a little cheaper than Nepali Rudraksha beads. Also, Indonesian beads are a little smaller and lighter in weight than Nepali beads but they are not inferior.
11 Mukhi Rudraksha is effective in all formats, whether worn as an Indonesian Rudraksha origin or the Nepali Rudraksha bead origin.
An average Indonesian bead takes around 3 to 4 months to adapt to the body and start delivering good results whereas, an average Nepali bead takes around 30- 45 days maximum to adapt to the wearer’s body and try to start working positively.
Since Rudraksha has no side effects, it is advised to wear the bead in any manner and make sure that there is no violation of the do’s and don’ts only while wearing. All other things are fine and there is no need to worry about them as well.
