· Maheshani, the Rudraksha with ten faces is Lord Janardan himself. O devesi, by wearing this, the wearer shall achieve the fulfillment of all desires.
According to the Shrimat Devibhagwat, Nirnaja Sindhu, Mantramaharnava, the ten mukhi Rudraksha is ruled by the Lord Vishnu (also regarded as Lord Krishna), who is the preserver of this universe. Lord Vishnu is the principal deity of Hinduism and one of the Trimurti along with Lord Brahma and Lord Shiva. Indeed, to represent the superiority of Lord Vishnu, Brahma is considered to have been originated from the lotus flower which grew from Vishnu’s navel. In some scriptures, it is also regarded as Lord Krishna but Lord Krishna is synonymous with Narayana and is of the eighth avatar. In Vaishnavism, Lord Vishnu is highly venerated as the Supreme Being as identical to the metaphysical concept of the Brahman (the ultimate reality of this universe), and highly esteemed for adopting ten different incarnations to preserve and shield from the ultimate evil and chaotic threats. According to Rudrakshajabalopanishad, the ten mukhi Rudraksha is assigned to the Yamaraj, the god of death and the Dashdigpal, the controller, and the warden of the ten directions.
As per the Rigveda, the Lord Vishnu was born from the Hiranyagarbha, literally known as the cosmic egg or golden womb of the universe that existed before creation. After the great annihilation of the universe, there exists only darkness everywhere. Everything was in the deep state of the sleep in a static position. By the grace of the Lord Syambhu (Self-generated), it created the primordial water all around the universe which is filled with darkness, and a seed of creation was established in the form of the Golden womb, Hiranyagarbha. According to Sri Mad Bhagavatam, Lord Hari/Narayan was at the beginning, who was pious of the principle of the creation, sustenance, and dissolution manifests himself as the golden womb and created the whole universe. As he is the supreme Purusha and creator of the whole universe, encompassing all things, everything within himself as the supreme intelligence.
