Rudraksha are dried seeds of a tree, which grows in select locations of South East Asia, botanically known as Elaeocarpus ganitrus (Rudraksha Tree). It is also called “Tears of Shiva” and there are many legends connected to Lord Shiva that describe its origin. For spiritual seekers, it supports to enhance one’s spiritual growth are very supportive in maintaining physical and mental balance. Its curative properties have been utilized worldwide for a number of physical, mental and psychosomatic illnesses. Anyone, irrespective of gender, cultural, ethnic, geographical or religious background can wear Rudraksha. They are intended for persons at any stage in life irrespective of mental and physical condition for many benefits. The smaller ones cost more simply because the Rudraksha is not plucked from a tree, they wait for it to fall down, fully ripe and fall down. So, it is much harder to pick up the smaller beads in the mountain so they cost more; otherwise, they’re about the same. Traditionally, a Japamala, or simply mala they are similar to other forms of prayer beads used in various world religions and are sometimes referred to in Christianity as a “rosary” were always dealt with by people who held it as a sacred duty in their lives. For generations, they did only this. They also made their living out of it, but fundamentally it was like a sacred duty of offering it to people. But once the demand became too much, commerce came in. Today in India, there is another seed called Badraksh which is a poisonous seed, which grows extensively in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and that area. Rudraksha is a wonderful gift of nature – the seed kernel that grows in the fruit is similar to a blueberry. Rudraksha Tree mainly grows in Java, Sumatra, Borneo, Bali, Nepal and India. This should not be worn on the body, but these are being sold as authentic beads in many places. So, it is important that you get your mala from a trusted source. Rudraksha offered by us are carefully selected, checked for quality and consecrated. We have prepared Rudraksha for you (culture in Europe or for culture outside Asia) to purchase / get individually or more (Japamala) and carry it with you in your pockets, or your neck, or on the wrist. The type of Rudraksha is determined by the number of faces (Mukh) each bead has. Each mukhi has a specific function (for happiness, love, protection …) and is connected to a certain planet and deity through Jyotish spiritual astrology. In the Himalayan environment, mukhi rosaries have been used for thousands of years for inner peace, knowledge, strength and enlightenment. Our sensory organs respond to stimuli such as touch, smell, sound, sight and taste as a result of bioelectricity that transmits information from the brain to different parts of the body and vice versa. As long as the bioelectricity flows between the body, mind and brain unhindered, bodily functions are normal. At the moment when stress occurs, the flow of energy in the body stops functioning normally — at that moment Rudraksha, i.e., Mukhas, begin to play a crucial role as a stabilizer. Rudraksha beads, i.e., Muhki, work together with the heart, harmonizing it and sending certain stimuli to the brain, i.e., they create positive chemical elements in the brain (sympathetic and parasympathetic) that fill us with a feeling of trust. Rudraksha grains have magnetic abilities and therefore can send out inductive vibrations. This is the reason why people feel better wearing them (even if they are not touched by the esoteric). Rudrakshas have dynamic polarity (meaning the ability to change polarity). It is known that wearing Rudraksha helps in the treatment of diseases of blood pressure, stress, anxiety, depression, heart palpitations, lack of concentration and encourages the ability to concentrate, i.e., it directs the mind to achieve progress, spiritually strengthens personal confidence. Japamala Rudraksha Bead Necklace / Rosary of 108 + 1 (Shiva) gives off highly positive spiritual vibrations. Not only does the Rudraksha possess dynamic polarity, but it is also endowed with the ability to create a magnetic field in the presence of an external magnetic field. Depending on the polarity of the induced magnetic field, the Rudraksha bead creates a polarity opposite to that which was caused (the result is the balancing of the arteries and veins, which leads to better health).
