Ancient Vedas assert Parad as the most pure and auspicious metal that has a spiritual as well as medical importance. It is believed and stated in Brahma Purana that if any male or female happens to be Shudra, Brahmin, Kshatriya or Vaishya who worships the idol of Parad then he or she attains supreme terminus (salvation) and is entitled to the complete worldly pleasures.

The manuscripts of Puranas, Shastras and Tantras mention the glory of Mercury Shivalinga. These Shivalingas are also referred to as Ras Shivalingas. These are made from mercury that’s in the liquid state. It has been declared in ‘Ras Chintamani’ that simply by touching the mercury, an individual can derive all the advantages of Shiva Puja performed within all the 3 lokas. It has been tried and tested that if you have been suggested to implement the changes in your home or workplace or industrial plant by leveling the actual space of your house or workplace, then you are strongly suggested to keep Parad Pyramid in your household and the Vastu Dosha would be completely terminated.

Mercury is a naturally occurring element that is found in air, water and soil. It exists in several forms: elemental or metallic mercury, inorganic mercury compounds and organic mercury compounds. Mercury is an element in the earth’s crust. Pure mercury is a liquid metal, sometimes referred to as quicksilver that volatizes readily. Mercury and its compounds have been used in medicine, although they are much less common today than they once were, now that the toxic effects of mercury and its compounds are more widely understood.
Parad offered At Singapore Rudra Centre
Parad offered at Singapore Rudra Centre is complete with Samskaras as per Parad Samhita. Nowadays there are several suppliers offering parad products at varying rates which confuses the buyers. There are several ways in which parad is bound by the suppliers. The most common method involves combining mercury with aluminum and other metals like tin, nickel, sulphur etc. Mercury readily combines with aluminum to form a mercury-aluminum amalgam when the two pure metals come into contact. However, when the amalgam is exposed to air, the aluminum oxidizes, leaving behind mercury. The oxide flakes away, exposing more mercury amalgam, which repeats the process. This process continues until the supply of amalgam is exhausted, and since it releases mercury, a small amount of mercury can “eat through” a large amount of aluminum over time by progressively forming amalgam and relinquishing the aluminum as oxide. In mercury items prepared this way, the mercury is still in its raw liquid state and in course of time, leaks in the forms of droplets. In such items, mercury retains all its properties which are very toxic. Mercury is a metal which dissolves all metals and such items can be tested by exposing them to gold or silver and one will see that the metal changes colour (gold becomes white) and also metal first becomes brittle and later dissolves. Also the items made with raw mercury are brittle and powdery and break easily (meaning they have non-metal properties). If these items break, they break into tiny powdery pieces. On the other hand a solidified mercury item is rock hard as a metal and if it breaks it is like solid chunks and not powdered form. The raw mercury is very harmful to the human body. Thus use of items of mercury prepared this way should be shunned by all.
We at Singapore Rudra Centre prepare mercury by processes detailed by Acharya Nagarjuna in Parad samhita. In this process, mercury undergoes 12 samskaras using tumeric, lemon, salt, neem and several other herbs and later on undergoes process by which it is solidified and neutralized using Sulphur and mica and bound by chanting of Shiva mantras. Once the process is over, the sulphur and mica is washed off completely exposing the silver soft mercury dough which is then set to form Lingam and siddh gutika and parad ring beads. This process renders the mercury not only harmless but beneficial. The resultant product is pure mercury 100% and no other metal is present in this. The mercury in this form is as hard as any metal. The mercury loses all its toxic properties and also does not eat metals eg:-gold or silver. Thus we set the Siddh gutika in silver. We even coat the parad gutika and the Shiva lingam in silver to give them the extra shine. But now we have started giving the Parad lingam in its natural colour (silver grey) as it also has a beauty of its own. If the lingam tarnishes to a darker grey colour over time, one may easily clean it using lemon or any de-oxidification powder or liquid (used for cleaning silver utensils). Such processed mercury has several beneficial properties.
