· Twelve faced Rudraksha is the synonymous form of dwadasa-aditya, the twelve forms of Sun god, “Surya”. One shall wear it on the hair of the head.
The ruling planet of twelve mukhi Rudraksha is blessed by the solar deity in Hinduism, the twelve Adityas, or Sun. The Sun is considered as the source of all life and symbolized as a dispeller of darkness, one who empowers knowledge, the good and all life as per Rigveda. The Surya’s (Sun) iconography is personified as the god traveling across the sky in his golden chariot harnessed by seven horses which depicts the seven colors of light and seven days in a week. The consort of the Sun is Chhayadevi (Goddess of Shadow) and sons are Kaakvahan, Shani, and Yam. All the living organisms, herbs, medicinal plants acquire their life and properties through Sun. The Sun is the Lord of the Sapphire (Manikya), a precious gem which can correct the malefic effect of Saturn and Yam. According to Padma Puran, the wearer will be blessed by the freedom of the fear of fire and diseases so that the person can acquire an enormous amount of wealth and happiness. With the offerings from Sun, the person won’t have to taste penurious life. As per the Shrimad Devibhagwat, this divine bead is an excellent tool to ward off the fear of armed men, horned animals, and lions. He/she is freed from the heinous sins incurred due to killing animals like elephants, horses, rats, rabbits, tigers, foxes, and even men (in wars and self-defense). It has the ability to bless the person with fearlessness and trouble-free so that the person might not have to experience physical and mental hardships.

The Rudrakshajabalopanishad describes this type of Rudraksha as the divine form of the Lord Vishnu who receives the power, brilliance, intelligence radiance from Lord Narayana. According to our testimonials, it has been received as the power of nature to cure several diseases of precious mankind. According to Atharvabed, the Sun plays an important role to remove weakness of heart for pusillanimous persons and boons for skin disorders including leprosy and diseases related to eyes. As per our scriptures, the Aditi was the mother of all the Gods (Devas), the mother of all Demon (Daityas) was Diti and the Danu belonged to the mother of all criminals. Once, there was a mighty war between gods and demons where gods started to lose the battle with demons. To save the world from the violence of demons, the mother of gods, Aditi, venerably prayed to Sun for the triumph of her sons in that war. The generous god Sun blesses the mother of gods and promised to assist gods to defeat all the demons by taking birth as Aditi’s son named ‘Sahastranshu’. Our great epics Mahabharata and Rigveda are full of stories extolling the glory and power of Lord Sun.
According to Samba Purana, Lord Krishna was also married to Jambavati who gave birth an extremely handsome and charming son named Samba by the blessing from Lord Shiva. His appearance and radiance was exemplary but later committed a sin and consequently afflicted with Leprosy after being cursed by sage Durvasa for mocking him. His youthfulness and charming looks began to abate and transformed into a very challenging physical appearance. He then worshipped Lord Sun sincerely and with the blessings from Sun, he became free from this physical affliction and recuperated his charming radiance. In Markandeya Puran, the wearer of this divine beads never faces any kind of problems in his/her life.
The special mantra to please Lord Sun as per Rigveda is as follow which should be recited with deep respect and considered to give extremely auspicious results.
आ कृष्णेन रजसा वर्तमानो निवेशयन्नमृतं मर्त्यं च ।
हिरण्ययेन सविता रथेना देवो याति भुवनानि पश्यन ॥
