​All You Need to Know About Rudraksha Beads

Posted by

The Rudraksha is a natural seed of the Elaeocarpus ganitrus tree, which is grown widely across the Himalayas, mainly in India and Nepal. Rudraksha or Rudraksham as it is called in Sanskrit means “tears of Lord Shiva” – the Mahadeva, considered to be the most important God in the Hindu religion.

Rudraksha Beads and Rudraksha Malas

Rudraksha beads have a tremendous significance in Hinduism and are dedicated to Lord Shiva. Rudraksha Mala is a necklace made from stringing together the Rudrakhsa beads. Lord Shiva is depicted as wearing the Rudraksha mala.

A typical Rudraksha mala is made of 108 beads. The sizes of all Rudraksha beads in the mala are the same. The number “108” is important here. A complete Rudraksha Mala has 108 beads, which is why it is important that you should only buy 108 Bead Rudraksha Malas.

Types of Rudraksha Beads

There are many types of Rudraksha beads such as those with 1 to 21 Mukhis or faces, 1 to 14 Mukhis and 15 to 21 Mukhis. 15 to 21 Mukhi Rudraksha beads are very rare. 4, 5 and 6 Mukhi Rudraksha beads are far more common and easily available.
