Introduction to Rudraksha wearing rules for women

In this blog we will discuss the Rudraksha wearing rules of women. Rudraksha is the regarded as the king of all the gems because of its benefits that can bring a lot of positive effects in your life. Rudraksha were formed by the tears of Lord shiva when he was in deep meditation and at that time he visualized the sorrows and problems of humans. He was really sad after seeling that and for that he wanted a solution to the problems of humans. The tears of Lord shiva fell in different parts of the world from which rudraksha trees were formed. 

Since Lord Shiva was deeply concered with the problems of humans, it is safe to say that he did not want to discriminate of who should wear rudraksha and who should not. He surely wanted everyone to get good results irrespective of gender, caste, age or belief. Similary we should also not discriminate in who can wear rudraksha are who cannot.

can women wear rudraksha while sleeping

While there are no restrictions mentioned in any of our scriptures for wearing Rudraksha while sleeping, we recommend Women to not wear rudraksha while sleeping.

During sleeping mode we are in not conscious phase and only our sub-conscious works and during that time Rudraksha doesn't work in our body. While sleeping we are not aware of the position of the rudraksha in our body and in that time the rudraksha may break or the thread/wire used to make the mala might break due to the rudraksha rubbing against out body. This rubbing may also cause any injury which we will only know after waking up. So it is very important to consider these things while wearing Rudraksha.

क्या महिलाएं रुद्राक्ष पहन सकती हैं?

लोग अक्सर महिलाओं द्वारा रुद्राक्ष पहनने के सवाल पर बहस करते हैं और इसलिए नीचे मैंने प्राचीन वैदिक स्रोत संकलित किया है जिसमें महिलाओं द्वारा रुद्राक्ष पहनने के नियमों का उल्लेख है।

शिव पुराण में उल्लेख है कि महिलाएं रुद्राक्ष पहन सकती हैं।

शिव पुराण के अध्याय 25 में, महिलाओं के लिए रुद्राक्ष पहनने के नियम का सटीक उल्लेख किया गया है की महिलाएं रुद्राक्ष पहन सकती हैं

सर्वाश्रमाणां वर्णानां स्त्री शूद्राणां शिवाज्ञया।    
धार्याः सदैव रुद्राक्षा यतीनां प्रणवेन हि॥ ४७॥ 

इसका अर्थ है “सभी वर्णों, आश्रमों, शूद्रों और महिलाओं को शिव के आदेश पर रुद्राक्ष पहनना चाहिए। तपस्वियों को इसे ओंकार मंत्र का जाप करते हुए पहनना चाहिए।”

स्कंद महापुराण में उल्लेख है कि महिलाएं रुद्राक्ष पहन सकती हैं

स्कंद महापुराण के अध्याय 4 पूर्वार्द्ध - अरुणाचल महात्म्य में इसका स्पष्ट उल्लेख है।

“अपने विभिन्न प्रकार के आभूषणों को अलग रखकर, उसने रुद्राक्ष की मालाओं के गुच्छों से खुद को सजाया। दिव्य वस्त्रों को अलग रखकर, उसने दो शुभ छाल के वस्त्र पहने।”

विभिन्न रुद्राक्ष की मालाएँ देवियों द्वारा शासित होती हैं जैसे कि 2 मुखी में शिव और शक्ति होती हैं। 4 मुखी में भगवान सरस्वती का आशीर्वाद होता है। 7 मुखी में माँ लक्ष्मी आपको धन देने के लिए होती हैं और 9 मुखी में सभी नवदुर्गाएँ होती हैं। इसलिए यह साबित करने के लिए पर्याप्त सबूत हैं कि महिलाएँ बिना किसी कठिनाई या प्रतिबंध के रुद्राक्ष पहन सकती हैं और उन्हें पहनना चाहिए। किसी भी शास्त्र, वेद या उपनिषद में यह कहीं भी उल्लेख नहीं किया गया है कि केवल पुरुष ही रुद्राक्ष पहन सकते हैं।

பெண்கள் ருத்ராட்சம் அணியலாமா?

பெண்கள் ருத்ராட்சம் அணிவதற்கான கேள்வியை மக்கள் அடிக்கடி விவாதிக்கிறார்கள், எனவே பெண்கள் ருத்ராட்சம் அணிவதற்கான விதிகளைக் குறிப்பிடும் பண்டைய வேத மூலத்தை கீழே தொகுத்துள்ளேன்.

பெண்கள் ருத்ராட்சம் அணியலாம் என்று சிவபுராணம் குறிப்பிடுகிறது.

சிவபுராணத்தின் 25 வது அத்தியாயத்தில், பெண்கள் ருத்ராட்சம் அணியலாம் என்று பெண்கள் ருத்ராட்சம் அணிவதற்கான விதிகள் துல்லியமாக குறிப்பிடப்பட்டுள்ளன.

ஸர்வாஶ்ரமணாம் வர்ணநாம் ஸ்த்ரீ ஶூদ்ராணாம் ஶிவஜ்ஞா ॥   
தர்யா: எப்பொழுதும் ருத்ராட்சத்தை வேண்டிக்கொள்ளுங்கள். 47॥

இதன் பொருள் “அனைத்து வர்ணங்கள், ஆசிரமங்கள், சூத்திரர்கள் மற்றும் பெண்கள் சிவனின் ஆணைப்படி ருத்ராட்சத்தை அணிய வேண்டும். துறவிகள் ஓம்கார மந்திரத்தை உச்சரிக்கும் போது அதை அணிய வேண்டும்.

பெண்கள் ருத்ராட்சம் அணியலாம் என்று ஸ்கந்த மகாபுராணம் குறிப்பிடுகிறது

ஸ்கந்த மகாபுரானின் முதல் பாதியில் அத்தியாயம் 4 - அருணாசல மஹாத்ம்யாவில் இதைப் பற்றிய தெளிவான குறிப்பு உள்ளது.

“தனது விதவிதமான ஆபரணங்களை ஒதுக்கி வைத்துவிட்டு, ருத்ராட்ச மணிகளைக் கொத்தாக அலங்கரித்துக் கொண்டாள். தெய்வீக ஆடைகளை ஒதுக்கி வைத்துவிட்டு, இரண்டு மங்களகரமான பட்டை ஆடைகளை அணிந்திருந்தார்.

பல்வேறு ருத்ராட்ச ஜெபமாலைகள் 2 முகிகளில் சிவன் மற்றும் சக்தி போன்ற தெய்வங்களால் ஆளப்படுகின்றன. 4 முகிக்கு சரஸ்வதியின் அருள் உள்ளது. 7 முகியில், லட்சுமி தேவி உங்களுக்கு செல்வத்தைத் தருவாள், 9 முகியில் அனைத்து நவதுர்க்கைகளும் உள்ளனர். எனவே பெண்கள் ருத்ராட்சத்தை எந்தவித சிரமமோ தடையோ இல்லாமல் அணியலாம் மற்றும் அணியலாம் என்பதற்கு போதுமான சான்றுகள் உள்ளன. ஆண்கள் மட்டுமே ருத்ராட்சம் அணியலாம் என்று எந்த வேதத்திலும், வேதத்திலும், உபநிடதத்திலும் எங்கும் குறிப்பிடப்படவில்லை.
