1 Mukhi Rudraksha / One Facet Rudraksha / Ek Mukhi Rudraksh
The One mukhi Rudraksha / 1 Mukhi Rudraksh is the symbol of God hood, Supreme Truth and
Attainment of Eternity. The One mukhi Rudraksha / Rudraksh is itself Lord Shankar and it is the main among all rudrakshas of all faces. It is ruled by the Sun and enlightens the Super Consciousness. It brings the power of Dharana to the wearer meaning the power to concentrate the mind on an object. The wearer of Ek Mukhi Rudraksha gets his mental structure changed and he begins to feel renunciation from the worldly affairs and naturally inclines towards GOD. His mind begins to concentrate on the Supreme Element that is Partattva Dharana cha jayate Tatprakashnam thus the discoverers of Aatma Tattva must wear 1 Mukhi Rudraksha / One facet Rudraksh.
Ek Mukhi Rudraksh is found in three shapes round shape , oval shape and the half moon shape. Round One mukhi Rudraksh is highly praised in our ancients texts but it is very rare and more of a myth. One mukhi Rudraksha Half moon is easily available and found in a family tree of Rudraksha from India and Srilanka.One Faced Rudraksha oval shape is also very rare but not as like of round shape ,it is find in india (uttranchal ) & in java also . From the point of view of importance there is no difference between them. Therefore it must be real and pure in whatever shape it may be. The cost of One mukhi Round Rudraksha & the cost of one mukhi rudraksha having oval shape is very high in comparision of half moon shaped Rudraksha.
This is the best of all Rudrakshas . Peace and pleasure abide in the house where One mukhi Rudraksha is worshipped. The person who worships it obtains not only all the worldly pleasures during his life span but also remains unaffected by them.
It is also said that one mukhi rudraksha is a " Manokamna pooran rudraksha " , as a person can wear this rudraksha for fulfillment of his wishes.

Padma Purana Chapter 57 Translated by Bhatta 1989 it is stated in verse 38 to 39
"The Rudraksha of one mouth is virtually Siva It removes the sin of brahmanacide. Therefore one should wear it for the destruction of all (ones) sins.
