Three mukhi Rudraksha represents Agni (Fire). Like Agni, which burns and consumes everything, yet remains pure and full of power, three mukhi Rudraksha purifies a person from all sins committed in the past. Those suffering from inferiority complex or fear or those experiencing self-hatred or mental strain should use this Rudraksha. It is also effective in removing laziness and making a person energetic.. As per Shrimad Devibhagawat, this Rudraksha condones the sin of performing an abortion. Being Agnisambhoot (produced from fire), it is useful in making the soul pure and enables one to live a life without guilt. Padma Puran assigns this Rudraksha to Brahma (the Supreme Lord) and it helps in solving all problems in life and brings in success. According to the old epics, the whole of universe is controlled by the power of three, particularly by the three stage philosophy of Shaivagam. Three mukhi Rudraksha is the symbolic seed for this aspect.
People suffering from any diseases, weakness, laziness or inferiority complex should wear three mukhi Rudraksha. While children below six years can wear one bead, those above this age may wear three beads. Adults can wear nine beads of the Nepal.
