could someone pls enlighten on the topic of japa mala esp sphatik.

can a person gifts someone a japa mala esp sphatik? i have heard that one shouldn't gift japa mala - is this right? if so, what are the consequences?

is it ok for girls to wear sphatik mala or should it only be used for japa?

can anyone use this mala to do any japa or particularly it should be used to japa Goddess?

thank you so much for time.



Sphatik japa mala is used for Devi's mantra japas. Gifting a newly purchased Japa mala is ok but the one in use by a person, should not be gifted, as it contains power of Japas done on it.
Sphatik is a semi precious Gem stone, like all other Gem stones even Sphatik's mala, pendatant can be worn.

A japa mala becomes a japa mala only after it has been used for japa. Otherwise it is just another ornament . 

A the time of purchasing, (you have to ensure that the sphatiks are genuine- there are lot of fakes also being sold) it is just a mala- necklace. Only by repeated usage for japa does it acquire spiritual properties. There are also rules on how a japa mala should be made: the kind of thread inside (it should not be plastic thread,) there should be no other gems/metal, etc. Ensure that these rules are followed so that the mala becomes efective
 
You can gift it to someone -provided it is newly purchased. No harm there. You can gift it after it has been purchased and put on a diety's idol as offering. You cannot gift it after you have worn it on your body.  In case you gift it after having worn it, it can at best be use as necklace- not for japa.

Cases where a japa mala can be gifted:  A japa mala that has been used for japa is loaded with spiritual power. It is not gifted in a trivial manner.  A Guru who has used it / worn it may give it to his/ her shishya. What I mean is, if the japa mala is going to be handed over to another person, it should be given / received in a proper manner. 

Yes, I would say anyone can use the sphatika mala for japa.  If you begin to read the scriptures with a microscope, the rules of what women should not do are far more that what women should do. So, we need not follow all that too strictly.

Ravan's father was a human being and his mother was a rakshasa.So who is ravan actually,a human being or a rakshasa?In almost all the stories,i have read that ravan is a rakshasa.Is it because of his evil deeds that he is called a rakshasa or there's some other reason?

AFAIK, Because he was born to a rakshashi woman, he acquired the physical / mental characteristics of a rakshasha and the asuric qualities in him remained predominant.  

But since he was born to a brahmin father, automatically his gotra and jaati were that of a brahmin. Technically, he was a brahmin, but practically a rakshasha.

Hence, after his killing, Rama had to expatiate his sin of brahma hatya. 

This is my understanding. Other explanations welcome.

plz..don't trust its stories cause they are fictional and not true...and the OATH of the VAYUPUTRAS is about the fiction based around samudra manthan and sati's death..since the book is yet to be released..i can't give u anymore info but yes...SATI is sure to die in this book...i really doubt though that parvati will be introduced!!!!
