There are two types of ek mukhi rudraksha, namely round and the half moon shape. I already have understanding that round 1 mukhi is the original one. As that is the one described in Shiva puran ? Which rudraksha to be chosen as the most powerful and the best bead to be worn when recommended.
In Shiva purana there are descriptions about 1 mukhi rudraksha in detailed. ek mukhi rudraksha is the most powerful rudraksha bead available and is very dear to the lord Shiva himself. And if we refer to Shiva puran as our source to believe on the powers, then we can surely tell that it tells about ek mukhi round rudraksha. The gole dana 1 mukhi round is smaller in size and available less in the market. As there are very less production so the price is significantly higher.
"One mukhi bead is the rarest of them all and is the embodiment of Siva himself"
The tree do not bear round one mukhi every year. One in thousand years.
Now you know we have so much deforestation. And with the rarity of the old trees, the number of beads that can come to the market has become less. And round 1 mukhi is the rarest and very difficult to get one original.
Say you have got some real source of getting one mukhi round . Then you need to check it properly before buying.
If you are purchasing it from the market then it is most likely going to be a fake one mukhi bead. All the beads available commercially are the shaped one mukhi beads.
Be careful while dealing with round ek mukhi dana commercially.
Recently we came across some customers who had bought 1 mukhi round rudraksha at thousands and were asking about it if those were original.
If someone wears the original ek mukhi round rudraksha, then he should have got a feeling of highest mental feeling after wearing the bead. The ek mukhi rudraksha of round shape are the best rudraksha to be worn. If it is original then definitely the wearer will feel it within few days of wearing.
I AM VERY LUCKY... my mother has One mukhi Rudraksha. Very simple to identify - 1. Round. 2. Clear symbol of Om (Hindi wala), Shivling ( Clearly visible), Nandi. watch this video you will understand easily. http://www.-------.com/watch?v=XYZCEuxVV9E
"Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is itself lord Shiva. It is the rarest and the most powerful among all varieties of Rudraksha. It enhances the self and enhances self confidence. It is believed that goddess Lakshmi never leaves the place where a one Mukhi ..
One mukhi is representing the lord Shiva himself. If we compare all the different beads, then we find ek mukhi to be most powerful and rare one. Self confidence enhancer and brings blessings from mata Lakshmi.
Round shape one mukhi rudraksha, you will get 100% chance to purchase fake one. I have been searching from last 6 years and studies lot things about rudraksha specially round shape one mukhi. I have purchase 8 to 9 round shape one mukhi rudraksha after testing all become fake one. if you want to see original round shape rudraksha go to Pashupatti temple at nepal and Jaganath at orissa, both rudraksha under security of Police.
