21 MUKHI RUDRAKSHA
The 21 Mukhi Rudraksha is blessed by Lord Kubera. He is considered to be the treasurer of the Gods and the guardian of wealth. Thus the person who wears the 21 Mukhi Rudraksha is known to receive abundant wealth. Not only does he acquire it but he also retains the same for his future generations. All the material luxuries of life are available to wearer. The wearer of this bead is protected from any evil force or legal tangles. Tantric effects or evil eye fail to even touch the wearer of this rare Rudraksha. Kubera is a Yaksha, a Dikpal and the Demi God who rules finance. His permission and consent are essential because without them even Goddess Mahalaxmi will not shower her grace on any individual. Lord Shiva always blesses Kubera. This is why at times he is addressed as Ishaan Mitra. The Kubera Gayatri addresses him as follows:
Om Yaksharajaay Vidmahe Vaishravanayae Dhimahi Tanno Kubera Prachodayat
Wearing the 21 Mukhi Rudraksha and chanting this mantra bestows individuals with success, prosperity and abundance. This is a very powerful combination of divination and mantra that is helpful in procuring and retaining tremendous wealth.
Once after a long penance Kubera opened his eyes. He could not bear the radiant form of Lord Shiva’s blinding effulgence. Lord Shiva then gave him power to see the divine light. Kubera saw the divine Goddess with his eyes wide open. The Goddess was infuriated by his wide eyed glance and plucked one of his eyes out. Lord Shiva intervened and blessed him saying that he is in charge of riches and treasury. He was appointed the ruler of Alkapuri. Another Gayatri mantra addresses him thus,
Om Tatrah Raajaay Vidmahe Alkadhisaay Dhimahi Tanno Kubera Prachodayat
It is seen that all those who earn a lot of wealth are always victims of envious glances. Jealousy and evil eye plague such people even though their good fortune is a result of good Karma. Such people benefit from wearing the 21 Mukhi Rudraksha which is a very rare and a powerful bead.
