5-Use of Rudraaksh-2
Rudraaksh is used in Maalaa (rosary) also to do Jap (Japa or Jaap or recitation of Mantra).
How to Count Jap From
When the rosary is strung, it is to be bathed with clear and scented water and afterwards with the Panchagavya (mixture of cow-dung, cow urine, curd, milk, and ghee); then wash it with clear water and sanctify it with the condensed electrical charge of the Mantra. Then recite the Mantra of Shiv (Six limbed), with “Hoom” added and collect the rosaries. Then repeat over them the Mantra “Sadyojaat, etc.”, and sprinkle water over it 108 times. Then utter the principal Mantra and place them on a holy ground and perform Nyaas over it, ie think that the Great Cause Shiv and the World-Mother Bhagavatee have come on them. Thus make the Sanskaar of the rosary (of its puriication) and you will find then that your desired end will be attained successfully. Worship the rosary with the Mantra of that Devtaa for which it is intended. One is to wear the Rudraaksh rosary on one's head, neck or ear and controlling oneself, one should do Jap with the rosary. On the neck, head, breast, or the ears or on the arms, the rosary should he held with the greatest devotion.
What is the use in saying about it so often? It is highly meritorious and commendable to hold always the Rudraaksh. Especially on such occasions as taking baths, making gifts, making Jap, performing the Hom or sacrifices to Vishwe Dev, in performing the Poojaa of the Devtaa in making Praayashchit (repentance), in the time of Shraadh and in the time of initiation, it is highly necessary to hold Rudraaksh. A Braahman is sure to go to hell if he performs any Vaidik act without wearing any Rudraaksh.
