14 Mukhi Rudraksha (14 faced Rudraksha)
14 faced Rudraksha is known as a divine gem (devamani) and is said to have several divine powers. It enhances the third eye chakra and bestows upon the wearer an enhanced power of intuition and the ability to sense the future. Traditionally, this Rudraksha is supposed to be worn on the forehead but this is not always possible in today’s world. This Rudraksha enables the wearer to make correct decisions especially regarding the future. It is blessed by the intelligence of Lord Hanuman – one of the incarnations of Lord Shiva who helped the forces of good overcome the forces of evil in the Sanskrit epic Ramayana. This Rudraksha provides the best protection from the undesirable effects of planet Mars (mangal dosha) in the horoscope.
This Rudraksha is also known as Maha Shani and pacifies the undesirable effects of planet Saturn (shani dasha). 14 Mukhi Rudraksha is associated with the wisdom of the 14 bodies of Vedic knowledge - 4 Vedas, 4 supporting Vedas (upveda) and 6 extensions of the Vedas (vedange). The 14 Mukhi Rudraksha bead is a rare gem to possess.
