According to Kali Tantra, Shankh Mala gives 100 times more benefits as compared to Kar Mala (Japa done with fingers), Pravaal gives 1000 times more benefits, Crystal rosary give 10000 times more benefits, Kamalghatta mala gives 10 lac times more benefits and Kush Mala gives 100 crore times more benefits and a Rudraksh rosary gives 1000s of crore times more benefits than any Mala.
A Mala made from the bones of human fingers can fulfill all kinds of wishes. This type of mala is used in Karna Pisachini Sadhanas.
For wealth benefits, A Coral rosary is said to be ultimate.
Flower Gyaan: Impure, stale, flowers eaten by insects, Flowers that have fallen on ground, Flowers taken from someone else or stolen flowers are forbidden. But Bilva Patra, Paan and Tulsi leaves and flowers even if broken or torn, can be offered.
1. One cannot break flowers after 12 pm.
2. Ketki or Kund flower on Shiva, Dhatura on Vishnu, Aak on Shakti and Tagar flower on Surya Dev; these things cannot be offered even by mistake.
3. The best flower for Lakshmi Maa is Lotus.
4. Flower should always be offered straight, facing the god and not upside down or reverse.
5. For Vishnu one must worship him every Wednesday with Champa flower without fail. Those who haven't worshipped Vishnu even once with Champa flowers in their whole life their birth itself is waste; according to our Tantras.
Japa procedure Gyaan:
1. Mantra Japa done without counting goes in vain. Then, it doesn't matter if your guru says or anyone says to chant 1 hour or 2 hour and so on. Japa very strictly cannot and should not be done without counting,
2. If Japa is being done in morning, the Mala must be kept near the belly. In afternoon, Heart and in the evening near the neck.
If Japa is done at home it gives normal benefits. If Japa is done in Cow shed, 1 chant will give benefit equal to 100 chants. Tirth will give 1000 times more benefits. Mountain will give 10000 times more benefits, River will give 1 lac times more benefits. Devaalay will give 1 crore times more benefits and Shivalay will give 1000s of crores times more benefits.
In the next part I will send a few more recommendations about Sadhanas. And in the 3rd part or 4th part I will send procedure to do any kind of Sadhana. All the things I am going to mention in these 2-3 articles are the basics of all kinds of god/goddess Sadhanas and the default rules that one must follow.
