Q18) What is the guarantee that the Rudraksha beads are original?

A) Astro Journey is an non profit research organization. The primary motive of starting Astro Journey was to guide individuals using the principles of Vedic Astrology. We felt that there were a maze of sites on these subjects but apparently they had very little or non consequential subject matter. If you have browsed through the site carefully you will find that the topics that create fear in the minds of individuals and used by charlatans to fleece money are extensively dealt with and their remedial measures are also given. The Rudraksha section was started on your demand. Astro Journey(registered) is a dependable name. Our experts select the most potent and original beads for you so you get the maximum value.Rudraksha is dear to us We would also like to draw your attention to one site on Rudraksha that was promoted by one of the Rudraksha Vendors in America (with other country sub domain name). They even had a Rudraksha rating section where the vendors site was placed number one and beads collected from other sites were given not so rave reviews. But their plan fell through. The Rudraksha experts all throughout the world threatened legal action and finally those people removed contents from the ratings section. If you have clicked on the ratings section you will get one message :"This page cannot be displayed "

This very individual/Rudraksha Vendor was one of the major seller of these holy beads in the United States. They have monopolized the rates of the Rudraksha beads and pushed them to astronomical prices(An artificial price rise!). Astro Journey will provide you with the correct bead. You can have the bead for inspection. We do not market anything. We believe in the Karmic Law. If God wants us to serve you or help you, you will come to us.

Q19) What are the kinds of beads available?

A) We have two qualities of Rudraksha beads Indonesian and Nepalese. These have been handpicked and examined by experts. The Indonesian is slightly more expensive than the Nepalese beads

Top
Q20) What is the Ek-mukhi Rudraksha reservation list?

A) First read about the Ek-mukhi Rudraksha here. The Ek-mukhi Rudraksha is a rare bead. And whatever Ek-mukhi is available is most of the time cashew nut shape. 90% of the one faced beads are cashew nut shaped. Only some beads are round in shape. We give them as we get them. Since the demand is quite high(Indonesian Round specifically), we have a reservation list for it. If you want to be on it then send your name, address, telephone no. to: vedicastro4u@usa.net. We will notify you once the bead is available.

Q21) Can I buy 100 beads of different facets from you?

A) No, you can't. The 100 in the question is an imaginary figure. We receive many mails asking for large amount of Rudraksha beads to be sent. As explained earlier our beads are for individuals and not for business houses. If we give a large amount of beads to you then what about OTHERS!

Top
Q22) Can you provide me with Yantras?

A) Yes. We can provide you with Yantras but only after understanding your need for it. We do not sell mere pieces of metal. We consecrate the Yantras according to your name. It is a complex procedure and normally takes 41 days. Some Yantras need 192 days to be consecrated. Do not ask us for Yantras till you need it absolutely.

Top
Q23) Can you send me a Shri/Sri Yantra?

A) Yes. Shri/Sri Yantra can be sent to you within 10 business days. It is a holy Yantra which should be used by all for peace and prosperity. Adi Guru Shankaracharya wanted the Shri/Sri Yantra to be established in every house. We have consecrated copper Shri/Sri Yantras. These can be ordered from the services section itself. Read more about the Shri Yantra here.

Q24) What precautions are necessary for wearing the Rudraksha?

A) A detailed section on protection, precautions and care for the Rudraksha beads has been put on the site click here to go there.

Q25) Do you think I should go for a Rudraksha report? >

A) It is not necessary except in some extreme cases. Wear the bead according to your desire and power of the bead. Remember Rudraksha does not follow the laws of Planetary Gemology. If you want the beads for a medical condition then you are advised to go for a Rudraksha report.

Q26) I think that you are doing wonderful work. How can I make a donation? Is the donation tax-free?
