“Ek vakram shiv sakshat brahmahtya vypohati”
Ek Mukhi Rudraksha symbolizes Shiv himself.
A person who wears Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is forgiven for all the sins committed by him. According to the Rudrapuran, Goddess Mahalaxmi resides in the place where Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is worshipped. Rudra Sanhita mentions that the presence of Ek Mukhi Rudraksha removes poverty, counters any dangers or disasters & prevents chronic diseases from happening.
Ek Mukhi Rudrakshas are extremely rare. Half-moon shaped Rudrakshas, also known as Chandra Mukhi found in Rameshwaram, parts of Kerala and Indonesia are widely accepted as a good substitute for the rare Ek Mukhi bead.
The ruling planet of Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is Sun. It affects the 7th chakra on top of the head namely Sahasra Padma Chakra. Wearing this Rudraksha removes the negative effects of Sun. This Rudraksha is useful in allaying headache, eye problems & diseases of liver.
