[Taken from]

Rudraaksh are identified by its faces or Mukh. There are many types of Rudraaksh - from one-faced or 1-Mukhee Rudraaksh to Mukhee Rudraaksh, but mostly only up to 14-Mukhee Rudraaksh are found easily. Others, from 16-Mukhee Rudraaksh are rare.

(1) 1-Mukhee (Face) Rudraaksh
It works as medical remedy for curing diseases like chronic asthma, TB, paralysis, stroke, heart problems, mental anxiety, eye problem, bone pain, headache etc. It is very difficult to get a genuine 1-Mukhee Rudraaksh, so how to test its genuineness?
--People believe that if you put a bucket of water and make the water rotate clockwise, and if you put 1-mukhee Rudraaksh in that water flowing, it will move in the anticlockwise direction.
--Some others say that they have seen it rise in a bucket of rice, when you place the Rudraaksh inside the rice, just as a Vishnu Valaamparee Shankh rises. Many have seen it in a village in Mysore. They put a net around the bucket, so that when the Shankh rises within 10 minutes the rice grains fall on the net, because it rises with such a force that the rice grains are thrown out of the bucket.
--Kali Baba's Eka Mukhi Tests: (1) He can show it flowing against the current of the Gangaa moving up river without sinking. (2) He can show it climbing up the flow of cow's milk and into the pouring pot if milk is poured on. (3) He can be like Kali Baba. If he is like Kali Baba then no one will demand these tests 1 and 2. And if a seed cannot (even) do even one of those simple things then what great power does it possess at all (according to Kali Baba)? So only one of these three tests can convince for its genuineness.

"The 1-faced Rudraaksh seed is the Shiv himself, made manifest and rendered vivid; even the sin incurred in killing a Braahman is destroyed thereby. The 2-faced or two headed Rudraaksh is like the Dev and the Devee. Two sorts of sins are destroyed thereby. The 3-faced Rudraaksh is like fire; the sin incurred in killing a woman is destroyed in a moment. The 4-faced Rudraaksh seed is like Brahmaa and removes the sin of killing persons. The 5-faced Rudraaksh is verily an image of Rudra; all sorts of sins, eg eating prohibited food, going to the ungoable places etc are destroyed thereby. The 6-faced Rudraaksh is Kaartikeya. It is to be worn on the right hand. One becomes free of the Brahm Hatyaa sin. There is no manner of doubt in this. The 7-faced Rudraaksh is named Anang. Holding this frees one from the sin of stealing gold etc. O Mahaasenaa, The 8-faced Rudraaksh is Vinaayak. Holding this frees one from the sin of holding an illicit contact with a woman of a bad family and with the wife of one's Guru, etc. and other sins as well. It enables one to acquire heaps of food, cotton, and gold; and in the end the Highest Place is attained. The fruit of holding the 8-faced Rudrāksa seed has been said.

Now I will talk of the 9-faced Rudraaksh. It is verily the Bhairav made manifest. It should be worn on the left hand. By this, the people get both Bhog (enjoyment) and Moksh (liberation) and they become powerful like me and get themselves freed at once, without the least delay, of the sins incurred by committing thousands of abortions, hundreds of Brahm Hatyaa (killing the Braahman). Holding the 10-faced Rudraaksh is verily wearing Janaardan, the Dev of the Dev. The holding of which pacifies the evils caused by planets, Pishaach, Vetaal, Brahm Raakshas, and Pannag. The 11-faced Rudraaksh is like the 11 Rudra themselves. The fruits, the efficacy of which I now describe. Hear, The fruits obtained through the performance of one thousand horse sacrifices, one hundred Vaajpeya sacrifices, and making gifts of one hundred thousand cows are obtained thereby.

If one wears the 12-headed Rudraaksh on one's ear, the Aaditya get satisfied. The fruits of performing Go-medh and Ashwamedh sacrifices are obtained thereby. No fear comes from burned buffaloes, armed enemies and wolves and tigers and other murderous animals. Also the several diseases of the body never come to him. The holder of the 12-faced Rudraaksh seed feels always happy and he is the master of some kingdoms. He becomes freed of the sins incurred in killing elephants, horses, deer, cats, snakes, mice, frogs, asses, foxes and various other animals.

O Child, The 13-faced Rudraaksh is very rare; if anybody gets it, he becomes like Kaartikeya and gets all desires fulfilled; and the eight Siddhi are under his grasp. He learns how to make gold, silver and other metals; he attains all sorts of enjoyments. There is no manner of doubt in this. O Shadaanan, If anybody holds the 13-faced Rudraaksh, he becomes freed from the sins incurred in killing mother, father and brothers.

O Son, If one holds on one's head the 14-faced Rudraaksh always, one becomes like Shiv. O Muni, What more shall I speak to you, the Devtaa pay their respects to one holding the 14-faced Rudraaksh and he in the end attains the Highest Goal, the state of Shiva. His body becomes verily the body of Shiv.

The Dev always worship the Rudraaksh seed; the highest goal is attained by wearing the Rudraaksh. The Braahman should hold on their heads at least one Rudraaksh with devotion. A rosary of twenty-six Rudraaksh is to be made and tied on the head. Similarly a rosary of 50 seeds is to be worn and suspended on the breast; 16 each on each of the two arms; 24 Rudraaksh to be worn on the wrists, 12 on each wrist. O Shadaanan, If a rosary be made of 108, 50 or 27 Rudraaksh and if Jaap is done with that, immeasurable merits are obtained. If anybody wears a rosary of 108 seeds, he gets at every moment the fruit of performing the Ashwamedh sacrifices and uplifts his 21 generations and finally he resides in the Shiv Lok."

Rules to Wear Rudraaksh
It is advisable to use the true Rudraaksh with gold and jewel, on the head, neck or on one's hand. Never use the Rudraaksh worn by another person. Use Rudraaksh always with devotion; never use it while you are impure. Even the grass that grows with the air in contact with the Rudraaksh tree, goes verily to a holy region for ever. Jaabaali Muni says in the Shruti :-- "lf a man wearing Rudraaksh commits a sin, he gets deliverance from that sin. Even if animals hold Rudraaksh, they become Shiv; what of men.? The devotees of Shree Rudra should always use at least one Rudraaksh on the head. Those great devotees, who with Rudraaksh on take the name of the Highest Self Shambhoo, get themselves freed of all sorts of sins and pains. Those who are ornamented with Rudraaksh are the best devotees. It is highly incumbent on those who want their welfare to wear Rudraaksh. Those who hold Rudraaksh on their ears, crown hair, neck, hands, and breast, get Brahmaa, Vishnu, and Maheshwar under them as their Vibhooti (manifestations, powers). The Devtaa and all those Rishi that started the Gotra, the Aadi-Purush (the first chief men in several families), held with reverence the Rudraaksh. All the other Muni, that descended from their families, the ardent followers of Shraut Dharm, the pure souled, held the Rudraaksh. It may be, that many might not like at first to hold this Rudraaksh, the visible giver of liberation and so well written in the Ved; but after many births, out of the Grace of Mahaadev many become eager to take the Rudraaksh. The Muni that are the Jaabaal Saakhee are famous in expounding the inestimable greatness of Rudraaksh.
