The seven mukhi Rudraksha is of Anang form. Even a poor person becomes Ishwar (Full of Possessions) by wearing it.
The 7 Mukhi Rudraksha is blessed by the Saptamatrikas and provides the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi. The 7 Sages known as Saptarishis, Sun, Mahasen, Anang and Ananta, the snake also bless this bead. The word “Ananta” (infinite) actually gives an insight into the several powers the wearer of this bead can access. In the scriptures Lord Vishnu has told that of all the snakes he is Ananta. Lord Vishnu is often depicted with Sthira (stable) Lakshmi on Ananta. Thus this bead carries the power of Goddess Lakshmi in her most stable form. The blessing of Goddess Lakshmi brings in wealth, fame, progress and removes bad luck. This power is experienced by the wearer of this bead as per texts.

Goddess Lakshmi is known for bestowing wealth and abundance. When she was in Devlok, Lord Indra was resplendent and mighty as the king of Devatas. When he was cursed for his arrogance and carelessness by the Sage Durvasa, Goddess Lakshmi leaves him, rendering him weak and without glory. She then graces the Naaglok as well as the lower world of the Asuras. The king of Asuras, Bali was blessed abundantly by her. When the quest for Amrut began, it was decided to churn the ocean. Both Devas and Asuras saw her emerging from the ocean of milk amidst the churning. She promptly chose Vishnu as her husband and went with him to Vaikuntha. It is in this place that she sat with her husband on the mighty Ananta Naag and displayed her Sthira (stable) form.
The Padma Purana states that seven mighty snakes live in the seven facets of the 7 Mukhi Rudraksha. Nagas / snakes are mighty elemental beings. The wearer of this bead stays unaffected by poisoning of any kind because of the grace of these Nagas. Crimes like theft, adultery and drug abuse amount to negative Karma and sins.
