Care and precaution Rudraksha

Clean your mala / beads when you feel they need cleaning after regular usage. Dip in warm water. Add some liquid soap. Hold for at least 24 hours and then brush with a plastic brush to clean dirt and grime that fixes in the pores of the beads. Then wash with running water and allow the balls to dry for several hours, and then apply some oil on the balls with the help of a brush. Sandalwood oil is best mixed with light olive oil. Oiling can be repeated every few weeks or when the bullets seem to dry as oiling makes pearls strong.

If rudraksha is worn for swimming, it is recommended to keep them away from the soap because it penetrates the bead pores and make them dehydrated. Regular washing with water is good for pearls. If not worn during bath, the beads can be washed in normal clean water, during prayers.

Nepali bead is the best in quality and faces are very clear on these beads.Indonesian beads are not too good in quality and faces are not so clear on these.So, when it comes to choosing between the Javanese and Nepalese I choose Nepalese blindly.Nepali beads are a bit expensive in comparison with Indonesian beads.

Generally beads are classified on the basis of the number of faces "mukhis" - gaps and furrows - they have on their surface (or say how many partitions on the pearl is divided into). Each bead has a different effect on you, depending on the faces it has. These faces are essential astrological viewpoint, since it is believed that rudraksha different faces please different planets.
