This lotus was huge, with many stalks, well organized and beautiful. Its color was yellow like Kaner. Lord Shiva created Brahma (Hiranyagarbha) from his right side and placed it in the stem of a lotus. Hiranyagarbha appeared from this lotus. The four-faced Hiranyagarbha got curious to know about himself and started roaming in the lotus stalk. But even after hundreds of celestial years he could not find out the secret of his origin. Shivji himself advised him to meditate and after 12 divine years of penance, Vishnuji appeared before him. There was a dispute between these two, then Lord Shiva appeared in the form of Jyotirlinga and said, “You both have immense power and vast knowledge, but you cannot find the beginning or the end of the universe. So call it eternal.”This meaning of infinity is revealed on applying Saptamukhi Rudraksha that it is very useful and bestows the holder with many types of powers.According to the Padmapurana, the following divine serpents reside in the seven faces of this Rudraksha: Ananta, Karkat, Pundarika, Takshak, Vashoshimban, Karoash and Shankhchud.
