Shiv Mahapuran

INTRODUCTION

First of all, Sage Shaunak expressed his desire to Sutji about knowing the means, which could help a man in this era of Kali to attainment lord Shiva, by cleansing all the impurities of his mind and rectifying his inherent demonic tendencies. Sutji then described about Shiv Mahapuran - the supreme of all the puranas, which was narrated by Lord Shiva himself and which was later on retold by Sage Vyas with the permission of Maharshi Sanatkumar, for the benediction of common man. Sutji said, "By understanding the mysteries of Shivmahapuran and singing its praises, a man attains greater virtues than that which could be attained by being charitable or by the performance of all the 'yagyas'. Contemplating on the subject matters of Shivmahapuran give auspicious fruits just like a 'Kalpa-taru' (A mythological tree which fulfills all the wishes). Shiv Mahapuran contains twenty-four thousand shlokas and seven Samhitas which are as under:-

  1. VIDYESHWAR SAMHITA,
  2. RUDRA SAMHITA
  3. SHATRUDRA SAMHITA
  4. KOTI RUDRA SAMHITA
  5. UMA SAMHITA
  6. KAILASH SAMHITA
  7. VAYVIYASAMHITA

The 25th Chapter of VIDYESHWAR SAMHITA describe about the glory of Rudraksha - The Holy Beads.

VIDYESHWAR SAMHITA

(SAGES ENQUIRE)

Vidyeshwar Samhita which is classified into twenty five chapters, has a narration in its first chapter which goes as follows-

Once upon a time, the sages were performing a Yagya at Prayag Kshetra. Sage Sutji came to know about this and arrived there. All the sages were very pleased to see him. They requested: -

"Lord! Though we have heard many tales from you regarding the man's benediction, but today we want to listen to something special. Because in this present era of Kali, when all the castes have forgotten about their respective duties we want to know is there any way to prevent the deterioration in the human values?"

Sutji replied:-

"O Great men! Your enquiry has great relevance in this era of Kali. I will certainly tell you about the way by the help of which a man can achieve benediction. Shivmahapuran contains the essence of Vedantic philosophy, which gives worldly pleasures as well as Salvation. Mere remembrance of it destroys all the sins of a man. One who studies the Rudra-Samhita attentively; his gravest of sins are destroyed instantaneously. One who studies Rudra-Samhita' silently, sitting in front of Bhairav-idol, all of his aspirations are fulfilled. A man gets liberated from the sin of killing a brahmin, if he studies Rudra Samhita while circulbulating around a Banyan tree."

"Kailash Samhita is even Superior than Rudra Samhita, as it elaborates upon the meaning of Omkar. Shivmahapuran is created by lord Shiva Himself. It contains twelve Samhitas which are - Viddyeshwar, Rudra, Vinayak, Uma, Matri, Ekadash-rudra, Kailash, Shat-rudra, Koti-rudra, Sahastra Koti, Vayaviya and Dharma."

"Initially it contained one lac shlokas but it was precised to twenty-four thousand shlokas by sage Vyas. The present Shiv Puran is the fourth one which consists of seven Samhitas. The earlier three Shivpuranas are unavailable. The scientific analyses of the Vedantic mysteries are the main subject of this divine Shivpuran. The study of Shivpuran helps a man to attain Dharma, Artha, Kaam and Moksha.

VIDYESHWAR SAMHITA - The Glory of Rudraksha (25th Chapter)

Soot ji said: -

  • Hey Shonak! You possess great intellect and wisdom. I am going to describe in brief the glory of Rudraksha, which is a divine form of Shiva. (1)
  • This Rudraksha is closest to Shiva's heart. It is extremely sacred. It is said that by the virtue, touch and worshipping of Rudraksha brings about destruction of all evils. (2)
  • Firstly, Lord Shiva's desire for the benefit of mankind, he described the glory of Rudraksha to Devi Parvati.(3)
  • Hey Maheshani! Listen to the power and glory of Rudraksha. Because of your love, I say this for the welfare and benefit of devotees.(4)
  • Hey Maheshani! Long ago, while practicing self-restraint and meditation for thousands of years my mind was agitated.(5)
  • Therefore Hey Parmenshani! For the preservation of entire universe I closed my eyes tightly.(6)
  • As a result a few drops of water fell down from my eyelids. Trees were born from these tears (on earth), which were named as "Rudraksha" trees.(7)
  • To oblige the devotees, these Rudraksha trees became inanimate. On account of the devotees of Vishnu and the four castes these Rudraksha tress originated in 'Gaurdesh'. These trees were grown forcefully to eradicate the evil groups at Shiva's favourite places, namely, - Mathura, Ayodhya, Lanka, Malaya, Kashi, and ten other countries.(8 to 10)
  • The Brahmins, Kshatriya, Vaishya and Shudras have originated be many orders. Rudraksha found on earth also have the above four caste. Bhadraksha is also a species of Rudraksha.(11)
  • Intellectuals have differentiated Rudraksha into four groups according to their colour, namely, - White, red, yellow and black. Humans should wear Rudraksha according to their caste.(12)
  • Those men who desire wealth, passion and salvation (moksha) should wear the Rudraksha in the order of their of numbers. Specially, the devotees of Shiva should wear Rudraksha to get the blessings of Shiva.(13)
  • Rudraksha the size of an Ambla is of best quality. Rudraksha the size of a fruit of jujube tree is considered to be of moderate quality.(14)
  • Rudraksha the size of a gram seed is of inferior quality. Hey Parvati !, I am telling you for the benefit of devotees with love, hear carefully the supreme knowledge of its process which is beyond the range of perception.(15)
  • Hey Maheshwari ! Rudraksha the size of a fruit of jujube tree is enough to bring about happiness and prosperity in the world.(16)
  • Rudraksha the size of a fruit of an Ambla can destroy all kinds of evil and viscous effects. Rudraksha the size of a wheat grain is provider of all kind of success.(17)
  • The smaller the size of a Rudraksha, more are its benefits, as said by the saints.(18) Rudraksha is worn for the purpose of destroying all sins. Wearing of Rudraksha is most important for the accomplishment and fulfillment of ones purpose.(19)
  • Hey Parmeshwari !, in this world the Rudraksha Rosary is incomparable. No other Rosary is as divine and beneficial as the Rudraksha Rosary.(20)
  • Plain, smooth, tough, big and thorny Rudraksha are considered beneficial. Rudraksha bestowed with the property of providing accomplishment of all desires and moksha (salvation). (21)
  • Rudraksha, which are bitten by insects, without thorns, cracked and not round are not acceptable.(22)
  • Rudraksha with a natural hole is of best quality. Rudraksha with a hole made by human efforts is of medium quality.(23)
  • Wearing of Rudraksha destroys all sins. A person who wears 1100 Rudraksha on his body becomes equivalent to the Lord Rudra (Shiva).(24)
  • The benefit of wearing these 1100 Rudraksha cannot be described even in hundred years.(25)
  • Any devotee, who wears 550 Rudraksha in a correct manner in the form of a crown, is also benefited.(26)
  • Making three folds of 360 Rudraksha and wearing it as a 'Yajno Pavita' (worn over the left shoulder and hanging down under the right), with devotion will also give immense results.(27)
  • Hey Maheshwari ! Three Rudraksha should be worn on the 'Sikhs' (the top knot of the Hindus). Six Rudraksha should be worn in each ear.(28)
  • 101 Rudraksha around the neck, 11 in each arms, 11 in each wrist and Karpur Dwar should be worn.(29)
  • Three Rudraksha as 'Yajno Pavita' and five around the hips should be worn by the humans devoted towards Lord Shiva.(30)
  • Hey Parmeshwari ! One who wears Rudraksha according to the following numbers becomes 'Divya' and laudable. In this manner he gains resemblance to Mahesh.(31)
  • Any one who watches a person sitting on a mat, wearing Rudraksha and he who pronounces the name of Shiva in a monotone gets released from all evils.(32)
  • This is the procedure for wearing 1100 Rudraksha. In the absence of this procedure, I will tell you some other ways of wearing Rudraksha, which are beneficial.(33)
  • One in Sikha, 30 on the fore head, 50 around the throat, 16 each on both the arms is the number of Rudraksha, which should be worn.(34)
  • 12 on each of the wrist, 5 on the shoulder and 108 in the form of 'Yajno Pavita' are the number of Rudraksha beads to be worn.(35)
  • One who is determined and wears 1000 Rudraksha in this way becomes equivalent to Rudra and all Gods bow in front of him.(36)
  • Whoever wears one in the Sikhs, 40 on the forehead, 32 on the throat, 108 on the heart, then 6 each in both the ears, 16 each on the arms, 12 or 24 on the hands, Rudraksha in a holy way becomes a devotee of Shiva and is worshipped and adored by everyone like Shiva, whenever they are watched by others. (At that moment person wearing Rudraksha becomes adorable). (37 - 39)
  • The use of "Ishan Mantra" for the forehead, "Tatpurusha Mantra" for the ears, and "Aghor Mantra" for the throat and heart is recommended for wearing Rudraksha.(40)
  • Wise man should wear Rudraksha on hands chanting Aghor & Seed Mantra and on stomach 15 Rudraksha chanting Vaamdev Mantra.(41)

  • The use of alcohol, non-veg, garlic, onion etc is prohibited for the person who wears Rudraksha.(43)
  • Hey Uma ! According to the caste Brahmins should wear white, Kshatriya should wear red, Vaishya should wear yellow and Shudras should wear black Rudraksha.(44)
  • People of all caste can wear Rudraksha. Wearing a Rudraksha takes a person closer to God whereas relinquishing it takes a man to hell. Rudraksha smaller than the size of an Ambla, broken, without a hole and eaten by insects should not be worn by people who are taking part in auspicious deed. Rudraksha the size of gram seed is praised. Rudraksha is comparable to a Shivling. It is both exquisite and praise worthy, as is said by Shiva. (45- 46)
  • Brahmins in all Ashrams (there are 4 in all), all the castes, male and female and Shudras can wear Rudraksha as ordered by Shiva. It is also instructed by Shiva that a devotee has abandoned the world should wear a Rudraksha by saying 'OM'. (47)
  • Wearing a Rudraksha during the day destroys all evils done during the darkness of night. Wearing a Rudraksha during night destroys all evils of the morning, afternoon and evening.(48)
  • Tripundadhari (three horizontal lines made by the ashes in the forehead by the followers of Shiva), an ascetic, and a person wearing a Rudraksha never go to hell.(49)
  • A saint who wears one Rudraksha on the head together with a 'Tripunda' and japs the "Panchakshara Mantra" should be worshipped. (50)
  • A person who does not have Rudraksha in his organs, does not have a "Tripunda" on his forehead and does not recite the "Panchakshara Mantra" from his mouth should be taken to hell. (51)
  • A person with Bhasma (Tripund) and Rudraksha should never be taken to hell, as a compensation of his deeds.(52)
  • "Yamraj" (The God of Yamas) gave this order to his subordinates. Hearing this they went into a shocked silence.(53)
  • Therefore, Hey Mahadevi ! Rudraksha destroys all evils. Even if an evil person wears a Rudraksha he is purified. He becomes equal to Shiva and becomes dear to be.(54)
  • A person who wears a Rudraksha on hands, arms and forehead becomes inviolable and he roams on this earth as an epithet of Shiva.(55)
  • Saints and Demons worship him. For them he becomes an evil destroyer and equivalent to Shiva.(56)
  • Those who wear Rudraksha without meditation and knowledge are also freed from all evils and attain 'Moksha'.(57)
  • Praying with a Rudraksha Rosary gives multifold benefits. Wearing Rudraksha gives 10 times more benefit to the humans.(58)
  • Hey Devi !, as long as Rudraksha is on the body of any living person, till then he never dies prematurely.(59)
  • Prepared with a 'Tripunda' and shining with a Rudraksha (not only does a Rudraksha gives spirituality and fulfillment, it also increases the beauty of the body. Rudraksha is also an ornament). Whomsoever japs the "Mahamritunjaya Mantra" by his virtue we gets the fruits of the virtue of Shiva.(60)
