EMBLEMS OF SIVA

Scriptures, particularly Jabalopanishad and Devipurana have devoted extensive space to bringing out the efficacy of Rundrakshadharana,. its various aspects, like number of rudraksha to be worn, places to be adorned, their kinds and faces together with the curative effects of wearing etc. The rudraksha is akin to a multifaceted gem, since it has faces also. They range from one to fifteen and each face has it distinct qualities, effects, uses and the like. The faces, strangely enough represent gods and auspicious things. They confer many benefits like prosperity, wealth, health, mental peace, besides purging of sins. Moreoever, to offer ritualistic worship to Siva, all and sundry are not eligible. One entitles to offer worship only with the smearing of vibhuti on the forehead and wearing of Rudrakshamala. So these two have attained pre-eminence and gained a covetable place in Saivism. They are the signs of bestowal of His grace.

The last emblem is the potent chant called Siva Panchakshari. This has the highest significance and it is mental unlike the other two.
