Rudraksha is considered one of the most potent manifestations of the cosmic force, hence making it an object of veneration and a link between the soul and the Self. Rudraksha beads are the seeds of blueberry fruit from the Rudraksha trees found in Himalayas and in many parts of Nepal. Rudraksha (Rudra = Shiva and Aksha = eye) means borne of Shiva’s eyes. Once Lord Shiva had to do severe penance to vanquish a demon named Tripurasura. Tears rolled down His eyes out of sheer fulfillment and they turned into Rudrakshas.

There are clefts called Mukhi or faces in the rudrakshas beads. The beads have grooves ranging from 1 to 21 faces. The five faced Rudraksha (Pancha Mukha Rudraksha) is the most common representing the five faces of Lord Shiva viz. Ishana, Tatpurusha, Vamana,Sadyojatha and Aghora. Each type of rudraksha has a specific healing attribute. The single faced bead is reckoned the most auspicious of all rudrakshas representing Lord Shiva Himself.

Words fall short while describing the immense powers of Rudrakshas. Scientifically speaking, a major stress reliever and circulatory problem curative, the rudraksha is used for its sanatory might. Spiritually, its powers influencing the soul and body are endless. Merely wearing it aids the wearer with astounding tranquillity and concentration with spectacular dominance over the mind. Wearing the Rudraksha mala, is efficacious in meditation and in achieving spiritual goals.
