This Rudraksha mala is a powerful rosary to accompany you in japa, repeat your prayers and count your chants. The five faces of the bead is said to represent the five faces of Lord Shiva. It is customary to chant a mantra to seek the blessings of Lord Shiva while counting the beads with your fingers. Remember that the Rudraksha mala is powerful only when worn using a red string or a gold chain, as the Odisha Bazaar Rudraksha mala is already made. The Panchamukhi Rudraksha mala is said to be able to enhance your wisdom and thus, makes an ideal gift for your children to excel in their studies.
