All rudrakshas mentioned in our scriptures, from one to 14 mukhis, Gaurishankar and Ganesh are used to make this extremely powerful and popular combination. A siddha mala is considered as one-stop solution for most of the general problems one encounters in day-to-day life like obstacles, stress, fear, legal issues and family problems. The 14 mukhi in this mala improves the visualisation power so that wrong decisions are not taken and one can judge what type of people one is dealing with. Safety of self and entire family is provided by this powerful combination. In Shiva Puran, Lord Shiva says that one who wears all the beads (from one to 14 mukhis) becomes full of Shaivatva.
There are several designs possible for this type of mala. The beads can be in ascending order, that is, from one mukhi to 14 mukhi and at the bottom a Gaurishankar can be used; or all even number beads (two, four, six, eight mukhi etc.) can be on one side and odd numbers (one, three, five, seven, nine, etc.) on the other side with Gaurishankar in the centre
