Venus is positioned second to sun in the series of planets from sun. Venus orbits sun in 224.7 Earth days. It is also the brightest natural object in the sky after moon.

As per the old stories or Indian mythological stories, Venus is the son of Rishi Vrigu. Astrology was very well known to father of Sukra and so well to sukra himself. Sukra chosen to be guru (master) for Asuras ( Demons). He prayed to Lord Shiva and got knowledge of recreation or giving life in objects. After than Venus was able to give life to the Asuras who were dead in battles. With the non dying Demons, the fighting Devatas got impatient and planned a trick. They sent Kaca to be student of Sukra. Kaca is the son of Jupiter, the lord of Devatas. Sukra's daughter Devayani liked kaca.The demons after knowing all about the trick killed Kaca. Devayani requested father and Kaca was alive again with the mantra power of Venus.Demon kills again and the story continues to make Kaca alive.

cut test rudraksha


          In cases, where we have doubts on the results from other rudraksha genuine test, then we can make this cut test. This is destructive test. We can cut the bead and test as below.

  • The number of lines or faces on the beads, that many grooves exist ( see the above image )
  • The number of seeds are equal to the number of grooves. One seed in each groove.
  • The compartment inside each groove may not contain any seed at times. This is because - the seed may not have grown up or not matured bead.
  • There may be cases where there will be two seeds being fused with each other. This happens in cases of higher mukhi beads.
  • Count the inner compartments with care. There may be additional effort needed from simple visual testing.
