Rudraksha is the seed of the Rudraksha tree. It takes around 18 years to grow to its full size. “Rudraksha” the Sanskrit word means the “eyes of Shiva”. Rudraksha beads are worn for good health, religious attainment through Japa ( Prayers) and Shakti (power). They are used for physical and mental well being, to reduce stress, meditation and body fluid regulation. Rudraksha always gives positive effects to the wearer and has no malefic effects as compared to Ratnas / stones. Shiva Puraan mentions important role of Rudraksha in a person's life and elaborates on the positive effects of 1-14 Mukhi Rudraksha.
