What are the different types of Eight Mukhi Rudraksha available?


Nepali 8 Mukhi Rudraksha

You will find two kinds of 8 Mukhi in the market i.e Nepali and Indonesian. First is this Nepali 8 Mukhi Rudraksha. Nepali beads are the most effective and they have broad mukhs and a natural hole in the center through which the bead is connected to its tree. Fake beads and Bhadraksha don’t have any hole in the center, you have to manually drill a hole in them.

You will find 8 Mukhi for 400-500rs on many websites. At this price you will either get a fake hand crafted bead or an Indonesian bead and that too in silver plated “metal” pendant i.e that pendant won’t be in genuine silver and lab certificate won’t be genuine either. I see online that there are many sellers who are using pics of Nepali bead but in reality, they will send you an Indonesian bead only. Sellers who are providing you 8 Mukhi for Rs.400 – Rs.500, their silver is fake, certificate is fake and the bead itself is either fake or Indonesian that isn’t even effective. What’s the point in wearing a bead that isn’t even effective? Nepali 8 Mukhi comes in small to large size. At Rudra Gems you can get 18mm – 28mm size 8 Mukhi at the lowest price in the market. All our Rudraksha are made in Genuine Silver Pendant and will come with an Independent Lab Certificate.


Indonesian 8 Mukhi Rudraksha

This is the Indonesian 8 Mukhi Rudraksha. Its the smallest in size and lightest in weight. The Mukhs in them are like tiny lines and these are not at all effective when compared to the Nepali beads. These have pretty low amounts of energy and that is why we never recommend you to wear a single bead, Indonesian 8 Mukhi should always be worn in a 108+1 beads mala. You can wear this mala as a substitute of the Nepali 8 Mukhi. You can find this mala’s link in the description box below.



How to test authenticity of a Rudraksha Bead?

As per MahaShivPuran, the only real way of testing whether a Eight Mukhi is original or not is to cut the bead in half from the middle and count the number of compartments inside. It should match the number of Mukhs outside so an original Eight Mukhi Rudraksha will have just 8 compartments inside but with today’s technology, we don’t need to cut the bead. Same result can be obtained with X-Ray. That is why we get all our Eight Mukhi Rudraksha tested from a Govt. approved independent lab. They test all the beads under X-Ray and only after verifying that the bead has only eight compartments inside do they certify it as a natural bead. You will get the lab certificate along with each of our 8 Mukhi Rudraksha.

There are many “tests” mentioned online but none of them are completely accurate. For Ex – it is said that a natural bead will sink in water whereas a fake bead will float in water. This can’t be further from the truth as a natural bead with air and moisture inside will float in water whereas if you put just a tiny drop of any heavy metal like lead inside a fake hand crafted bead, it will sink in water. So the only sure way of knowing whether the bead is genuine or not is an X-ray from an independent lab.

Who can wear Eight Mukhi Rudraksha?

Anyone can wear any combination of Rudraksha beads because unlike gemstones, these beads do not have any negative or side effects. If you are facing a problem related to the benefits that I have above then you can surely wear the 8 Mukhi Rudraksha. Unlike gemstones you do not need to get your horoscope or rashi checked before wearing Rudraksha beads, you can just know the benefits of that bead and wear accordingly. These beads are Unisex so both men and women can wear them.

Mantra & how to wear this Rudraksha bead?

At Rudra Gems, we energize every bead through Mantras before sending them to our customers so after getting the 8 Mukhi Rudraksha, all you need to do is wear it on a Monday morning after chanting “OM HUN NAMAH” 108 times. If you could wash the bead with milk and then ganga jal before wearing it then it will be great, if not then you can simply wear it around your neck after chanting “OM HUN NAMAH” 108 times.

What are the precautions needed after wearing 8 Mukhi Rudraksha?

The wearer should avoid eating non-veg food, alcohol and visiting cemetery while wearing the 8 Mukhi Rudraksha. If you have to then first remove the bead and place it in your place of worship or if you are outside then you can put it in your bag or pocket first and then wear it again the next day after taking a bath. Don’t consume non-veg or alcohol while wearing the bead.

You should also remove the bead every night before going to sleep and wear it again the next morning after freshening up and taking a bath.
