Trijuti Rudraksha is a wonder of nature. Three rudraksha beads get joined on the tree itself. In other words, it is a Gaurishankar with a third rudraksha. Although there are several Trijudi types, one having the three beads in equal shape and size and uniformly stuck to each other is a rarity. Such beads are produced only once in several years. The market has several numbers of crafted Trijuti’s and one should be extremely careful while buying this bead. Normally, people crafting a Trijuti take a genuine Gaurishankar and another bead, matching it in color and contours, and join them with great precision and using high quality adhesives. As a the rudraksha can fetch lakhs of rupees, high level of craftsmanship is used in creating the fakes. Earlier, the bonded beads could be separated if boiled in water for one to two hours, but newer types of adhesives and newer techniques make it difficult to identify the fake beads. Even now, one can boil the bead in water for two to three hours and there could be discolouration of one or more beads, if they are bonded. If the bead is genuine, the colour should be almost uniform across the entire surface of the bead.
The rudraksha also known as Tribhagi, Gauri Path or Brahma-Vishnu-Mahesh and represents the Trinity. It is symbolic of all the basic characteristics of the universe. It is a auspicious rudraksha. It represents the complete personality and gives the wearer total control over difficult situations. It can be a very useful tool in leadership and in achieving total success.
A Trijuti Rudraksha can have any number of mukhi’s although in most cases this aspect is not given any weightage. For example, 14, 19, 20 and 21 mukhi Trijudi are considered extremely rare and possess highest qualities. The rudraksha which one of the beads is one mukhi, is also very rare and known to possess high qualities. Some wearers have experienced strange feelings for first few weeks of their wearing including experiencing weird dreams. They are advised not to be afraid and reach wrong conclusions. It is the mystic power of this divine bead, which takes time to get synchronized with the body system of the wearer.
