I currently have Panchamukhi Rudraksha. Is nirakara (faceless) Rudraksha more powerful than all faced ones? According to http://www.shivamrudraksha.com/face-less-rudraksha-with-om-mark.php

  • This question is not about Yoga, Tantra etc.. Only Rudraksha is the correct tag. You may remove the other tags you added.

  • @Rickross Well, you could have done that in your edit since you also have editing privileges? Commented Aug 20, 2019 at 6:08
  • @Aoi.T_015 please don't decide these things without proper consultation. Wearing wrong kind of Rudraksha may not be good. 5 mukhi is normally good for everyone. Sadhguru says Ekmukhi should not be worn by householders. So take care. isha.sadhguru.org/in/en/wisdom/article/…

  • Oh! You removed information from your answer but that was not needed. It is enough if you give proper attribution for what you have written. Even if it is not copied and you have paraphrased, that is okay. The details about one mukhi Rudraksha, two mukhi rudraksha etc., you have provided were good. The answer was better with that detail. Why did you remove information collected from aumrudrakha.com? You can quote that website if that can be relied upon. Commented Aug 20, 2019 at 6:39

In the Devi Bhagwat Puran in the section on greatness of Rudraksha beads Shiva Himself narrates to his son Kartikeya the importance of different types of Rudraksha and states:

O Kārtikeya! As many faces as there are in the Rudrākṣam, for so many thousand Yugas the holder resides with honour in the Śiva Loka. One should declare the greatness of Rudrākṣam to one’s own disciple; never to disclose its glories to one who is not a disciple nor a devotee of Rudrākṣam nor to him who is an illiterate brute. Be he a Bhakta or not a Bhakta, be be low or very low, if he holds Rudrākṣam then he is freed from all sins. No equal can be to the merit of him who holds the Rudrākṣams.

We can also understand the relative importance of the different faced beads from the section below:

One faced Rudrākṣa seed is the Śiva Himself, made manifest and rendered vivid; even the sin iñcurred in killing a Brāhmaṇa is destroyed thereby.

Two faced or two headed Rudrākṣam is like the Deva and the Devī. Two sorts of sins are destroyed thereby.

The three faced Rudrākṣam is like fire; the sin iñcurred in killing a woman is destroyed in a moment.

The four faced Rudrākṣa seed is like Brahmā and removes the sin of killing persons.

The five faced Rudrākṣam is verily an image of Rudra; all sorts of sins, e.g., eating prohibited food, going to the ungoables, etc., are destroyed thereby.

The six faced Rudrākṣam is Kārtikeya. It is to be worn on the right hand. One becomes freed of the Brahmāhatyā sin. There is no manner of doubt in this.

The seven faced Rudrākṣam is named Ananga. Holding this frees one from the sin of stealing gold, etc., O Mahāsena!

The eight faced Rudrākṣa is Vināyaka. 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 eight faced Rudrākṣa seed has been said. Now I will talk of the nine-faced Rudrākṣam. It is verily the Bhairava made manifest. On the left hand it should be worn. By this, the people get both Bhoga (enjoyment) and Mokṣa (liberation) and they become powerful like Me and get themselves freed at once, without the least delay, of the sins iñcurred by committing thousands of abortions, hundreds of Brahmāhattyās (killing the Brāhmaṇas).

Holding the ten-faced Rudrākṣa is verily wearing Janārdana, the Deva of the Devas. The holding of which pacifies the evils caused by planets, Piśācas, Vetālas, Brahmā Rākṣasas, and Pannagas.

The eleven-faced Rudrākṣam is like the Eleven Rudras. The fruits, the efficacy of which I now describe. Hear. The fruits obtained through the performance of one thousand horse sacrifices, one hundred Vājapeya sacrifices, and making gifts of one hundred thousand cows are obtained thereby.

If one wears the twelve-headed Rudrākṣam on one’s ear, the Ādityas get satisfied. The fruits of performing Gomedha and Aśvamedha 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 twelve-faced Rudrākṣa seed feels always happy and he is the master of some kingdoms He becomes freed of the sins iñcurred in killing elephants, horses, deer, cats, snakes, mice, frogs, asses, foxes and various other animals.

O Child! The thirteen faced Rudrākṣam is very rare; if anybody gets it, he becomes like Kārti Keya and gets all desires fulfilled; and the eight siddhis 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 Saḍānana!If anybody holds the thirteen faced Rudrākṣam, he becomes freed from the sins iñcurred in killing mother, father and brothers.

O Son! If one holds on one’s head the fourteen faced Rudrākṣam always, one becomes like Śiva. O Muni! What more shall I speak to you! The Devas pay their respects to one holding the fourteen faced Rudrākṣas and he in the end attains the Highest Goal, the state of Śiva. His body becomes verily the body of Śiva.

It appears from the above references that the higher the number of faces, more is the spiritual value of the Rudraksha bead, and hence the one with fourteen faces would be the most powerful one based on this text instead of a single-faced one.
