Ø  The six Mukhi Rudraksha is the form of the Lord Kartikeya that should be worn on the right hand and absolve a person from the sinful act as high as Brahma-Hatya.  

These kinds of Rudraksha is an easily available variant in nature and cheaper per beads. The Nepalese five Mukhi beads are similar in shape and size with five mukhi variety where Indonesian variety is quite smaller in size. Shrimad Devi Bhagwat assigns the six mukhi Rudraksha to Lord Kartikeya whereas the Nirnaja Sindhu calls it Guhasangyak (meaning the hidden knowledge) and the Jabalopanishad explained it jointly to Kartikeya and Ganesh (both are the sons of Lord Shiva).

As we know, the ruling deity of six Mukhi Rudraksha is extremely lively Lord Kartikeya who is the second son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati and also the leader of the celestial army (Commander of the army of the Devas). Kartikeya is also known as the Skanda (spilled one), Kumara, Murugan, or Shanmukha (six heads) envisioned as an ever-youthful man riding a peacock and dressed with weapon sometimes near a rooster. He is a divine form of philosopher-warrior, destroyer of the evil form “Tarakshur”, a teacher of the ethnical life and the theology of the Shaiva Siddhanta.

In Rudra Samhita (Kumar Khand), It is mentioned that the universe is terrorized by the evil activities of the demon named “Tarakashur”, who had been granted a boon of his death only by the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. To fulfill this prophecy, the god Agni was chosen to interrupt the amorous play of Lord Shiva with Goddess Parvati but many years of abstinence. The Agni dev received the spilled seed from Lord Shiva but the heat emanating from this seed couldn’t be handled even by the Agni dev and dropped it into the Ganges. The water of the Gangas was evaporating and the seed separated into six children, each of them is nurtured by the six mothers from infancy also known as the “Kritikas”. These children are later unified by the divine form of Goddess Parvati and trained by Lord Shiva, Shakti, Laxmi, Brahma, Saraswati in martial arts, weapons, and power of mind and knowledge. Goddess Parvati blesses him with enormous wealth with luxury and eternal life. With all the blessing from all the gods, he became so invincible that the powerful demon Tarakashur couldn’t hold his breath for the longer period of time in front of Kartikeya and gets killed by using the power of the Kantimat Shakti in one stroke. He is also known as the secret energy for the potency of OM.
