Myths Related to Rudraksha Wearing Rules for Females

There are many myths associated with wearing Rudraksha for women. One of the popular myths goes as follows.

This popular myth begins with lord Parvati. According to this popular myth, back in the Satya yuga, when gods and goddesses roamed the earth, Lord Shiva was meditating one fine day. On this day, she closed Lord Shiva’s eyes. As soon as she did this, the entire universe became gloomy.
To correct this wrong, she traveled to Kanchi wearing the Rudraksha for her penance.

Based on this myth, it is clear that women can wear Rudraksha without any restrictions. Since this gift of lord Shiva was once worn by his wife, and he did not prevent her from wearing this, who are we, the mortals, to prevent the respected women from wearing this gift of Shiva?
Any and all women can wear the Rudraksha. Furthermore, the popularity of Rudraksha has been growing among females over the recent decades.

Significance Of Rudraksha for Females

Everybody knows that lord Parvati is the wife of lord Shiva. She is also known as Goddess Shakti, and she is rarely separated from lord Shiva. Therefore, when one wears Rudraksha and gains the blessings of lord Shiva, they also ask for the blessings of lord Parvati as well. Therefore, she is directly and deeply associated with Rudraksha. In Rudraksha, lord Rudra or Shiva represents the masculine aspect. At the same time, Lord Shakti or Parvati represents the feminine aspect of the Rudraksha.

With this in mind, we can clearly see the significance of Rudraksha for females. It is deeply associated with Lord Parvati, who is also seen as the feminine counterpart of lord Shiva.

Things to remember when purchasing a Rudraksha mala

Now that we know the significance of Rudraksha for females let’s talk briefly about some things to consider before purchasing Rudraksha Mala. Some of the key aspects you should consider are as follows.

  • Always buy genuine Rudraksha Mala. For this, you can make purchases from wholesalers and experts at handicrafts in Nepal like Nirvana Mala.
  • While purchasing rudraksha mala, ensure that they are not too tight.
  • Ensure that the mala contains Sumeru beads.

These are the key things you should consider when purchasing the rudraksha mala beads. Besides these, you should also consider the build quality, your intentions, and the type of rudraksha mala. While saying this, you must understand that all of these aspects will depend on your intention for wearing the rudraksha mala.

Steps to take while wearing Rudraksha

Now that we know the basic things to consider before making the purchase let’s talk about the steps we need to take to wear Rudraksha Mala.

  • When wearing Rudraksha Mala in the morning, you should recite the Beeja mantra of the Rudraksha nine times.
  • Before wearing the Rudraksha Mala in the morning, you should take a bath. Furthermore, it would be best if you also recited the mantra each time you wear it. Additionally, we recommend worshiping it with an incense stick and diya.
  • It would be best if you always kept the rudraksha mala neat. For this, you can regularly clean it with water. After cleaning the rudraksha bead, you should apply oil on it.
    The Rudraksha has a fiery nature, and thus, it may not be suitable for everybody to wear. Therefore, if you see an adverse reaction to wearing the rudraksha beads, you should discontinue wearing them immediately.
  • The best type of Rudraksha mala is the Japa Mala necklace with 108+1 guru beads. However, you can wear the 27+1 beaded wrist mala. Ensure that you do not use Japa mala as a wrist mala. Each type of Rudraksha mala has its purpose.

These are some of the general steps to consider before wearing the Rudraksha mala. The steps remain the same regardless of gender, caste, culture, location, or ethnicity.

Some Rudraksha Wearing Rules for Females

Rudraksha Wearing Rules for Females

Wearing the Rudraksha can have both spiritual and energetic benefits. Therefore, it can be tempting to wear this religious and spiritual accessory. That said, there are a few rules for wearing Rudraksha for females. Some of these rules are as follows.

Avoid wearing Rudraksha beads during menstruation.

This is more of a common advice rather than a steadfast rule. Therefore, depending on the rule of your sect or religion, it may not apply to you. However, it is commonly advised that females not wear Rudraksha during menstruation. It is believed that the energy in the body during this period can interfere with the positive effects of the Rudraksha. This rule goes hand in hand with the general rule of not wearing Rudraksha during sexual activities. That said, the latter half of the rule is applicable to males as well.

Be Mindful of the Stringing Material

This is another rudraksha-wearing rule for females. As per this rule, one should be mindful of the stringing material. The stringing material should be durable and non abrasive. This is done to ensure that the string does not damage the Rudraksha and the skin of the women wearing it.

Maintain Cleanliness

Maintaining cleanliness is more of a general rule and is applicable to both males and females. As per this rule, one should keep the Rudraksha clean and free from dirt and grime. Along with this, wearers of the Rudraksha should keep themselves clean to maintain its purity.

Respect the Sanctity

Along with cleanliness, you should also treat the Rudraksha with respect and maintain the sanctity. It would help if you did not touch Rudraksha Japa Mala or Wrist Mala bracelets with unwashed hands. Furthermore, you should also avoid wearing Rudraksha while having carnal activities (sexual activities like intercourse or masturbation). Wearing Rudraksha during carnal activities can hamper its sanctity.

Avoid sharing Rudraksha Beads.

Another key rule of wearing Rudraksha is not to share it with anyone else. When worn, Rudraksha transforms its energy and matches it with your own. Therefore, if you share it with other people, it can lose its efficiency. Therefore, we advise you to avoid sharing Rudraksha beads with other people.

Now that we know the basic Rudraksha wearing rules for women let’s talk about the aspect of cleansing the Rudraksha before we conclude our topic. But what is conditioning? Conditioning is the process of energizing the Rudraksha to enhance its effect. To do this, you should follow the process below.

  • Wash the Rudraksha with clean water.
  • Wipe it dry
  • Submerge the Rudraksha in a ghee for one night
  • Rinse it off and immerse it in pure cow milk for one day
  • Wear the Rudraksha in the morning after performing pooja and chanting Shiva Mantra

Note: You can use oil if you find it inconvenient to get cow milk and ghee. Additionally, it would be best if you immersed the Rudraksha in metal bowls such as copper bowls or brass bowls. We advise against the use of plastic, glass, and ceramic bowls.
