Rudraksha is a natural seed, found within the fruit of the evergreen Elaeocarpus ganitrus, it is indigenous to the Himalayas across India and Nepal. They are one of the oldest materials traditional malas have been made from.
Rudraksha literally means “the tears of Shiva”. It is said, while contemplating Man’s suffering, Shiva — the great Mahadeva, the Supreme God and divine gift-giver — unexpectedly began to cry tears of compassion. As his tears fell, he guided them towards Earth and transformed them into divine seeds…for the benefit of those seeking freedom from suffering and union with the Divine.
Rudraksham are sacred power objects, which possess the power to positively influence and protect every aspect and expression of your life and soul as you walk the path to your Immortal Awakening. They are here to bless your life and manifest your intentions.
The rudrasham in this mala are 5 faced, connecting you to the five elements, Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether as well as to the first five chakras and to the four directions plus the center.
